Tip & How-To about Washing Machines

Washer users beware

Absolutely the best tip i will ever give a customer is never ever leave your washer unattended ( that is while it's being used ) as it can and will flood your home. when it's just sitting there your hot or cold water hose could burst. i don't see that alot, but while it is in use there are at least a dozen different ways it can flood your home. if your on a well, there is an even greater chance that it will flood. never remove screens from valve. take an old tooth brush and a cup of water and clean. be safe. i always warn my customers, don't go outside and pull weeds for 20 minutes. if this washer overflowed for only 20 minutes think of what it would do to your home.

Looking for replacement kettle spout filter for Breville VKJ007. It's rectangular and black not the tapered type.

Tried customer support on 0161 652 1211 who said replacements are no longer available.
You can use the kettle without the filter but the auto-stop feature is likely not to work so don't leave it unattended.

My Maytag Epic front load washer is dripping a small amount of water from the water entry point in the tub. Is this normal after washing a load of clothes? I have not noticed it before.

I do not think this is normal. This may be a sign that your water fill valve is going bad. I would recommend shutting off your water supply valves when not in use and do not leave unattended when in use in case it gets worse. I would get repaired as soon as possible.

microwave oven fan will turn itself on and off constantly when not using the regular oven. Afraid to leave microwave plugged in because it comes on and goes off so much. Kenmore model 721.62649200

It may be a shorting pad (the hood / vent fan pad) on the keypad or a part on the control board.

Absolutely - If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it running unattended.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

If you need a new keypad, that would add about $37 to that cost.

Feel free to visit our Web site or contact me directly with your model number and symptoms.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
