Tip & How-To about Washing Machines

HOW TO CLEAN A WASHING MACHINE

Washing Machines Need Cleaning, Too We interrupt this scintillating mechanical exploration of washing machine mechanics to bring up a very important matter: why your laundry might stink even after a fresh wash. It may be that your washer is dirty.

Regularly clean the top and door of the washer to prevent the buildup of dirt and detergent. When you wash very linty materials, pull lint from the tub after removing the laundry. Built up lint can keep water and detergent from properly circulating and soap deposits themselves may cause laundry to smell bad.
To solve this problem, fill the tub with water and add 1/2 cup of baking soda or 3 cups of white vinegar; then run the machine through the complete wash cycle. If the deposits are really bad, wash the inside of the tub with a solution of household ammonia and mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly and wipe the tub with liquid bleach.
A word of caution: Rinse the tub thoroughly before wiping it out with bleach. The combination of ammonia and bleach forms a potentially dangerous gas called chloramine. This compound can cause health issues ranging from mild skin irritation to digestive and kidney problems
Finally, run the machine through a complete wash cycle before you put any more laundry in. Hopefully, you were able to address your issue with these simple steps.

What the code h1 means samsung washing machine


H1 on a samsung washer is a heating problem.
You need to check the heater and the control unit and find the fault form there.
If you have a multimeter you can test the heater as it should read about 28 ohms. If faulty then the heater will need to be replaced to cure this.
Check it out and see what you find but the H1 error code is a heating problem.

What to do when h1 is flashed in ifb automatic front load washing machine


Cannot find anything about H1, but error code E01 is door not closed properly. An instrument at work sometimes reads "h1" and this indicates a "high" reading, but don't know if that is really relevant here. Sorry I can't help any further. Good luck.

Remove washing machine filter for cleaning: How do I remove the filter on my Bosch class iXX front load washing machine for cleaning? We can turn it 1/3 anticlockwise but it won't pull out.


Something must be jamming the filter. You will need to just keep working it. If you cannot get it to open, you will need to replace the whole assembly.
