Next question, how do I get the slime out of the clothes from washer?


Cleaning the rubber door gasket will not get rid of the slime issue. The slime comes from buildup on the outside of the washer drum. There are two causes for this. First, if you always close the washer door after use, then the moisture inside the drum cannot dissipate and the slime can form. Also, using the wrong type of detergent (or an excessive amount of the correct detergent) can cause the slime. There are front load washer cleaning products that you can purchase and run to clean the slime from the outside of the drum.

Tip

Allways clean your filter on your washer


by cleaning your pump filter at leased once a month will make your washer perform better and last longer. it will stop problems accuring such as (door will not open ) (the machine will not spin on final spin ) (wet cloths) (un even loads) (dirty cloths) (smell & mould ) another good tip is dry off the rubber door seal after use and sprinkle a little talk powder on it this will stop it staining with mould.

Damp smell coming from inside machine and black thick slime inside rubber seal.


That thick black slime is called black mold. You need to do a major cleaning on your unit, including checking the water drainage hose to assure that the water is clearing all of the way out and is clean of builduo. Do not waste time in waiting to do this as it will only get worse. Disinfect, Disinfect, Disinfect. Good Luck.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

I have a wma 10 which is a couple of years old. The door seal now leaks when the machine goes onto a spin? Is there anything that you can suggest?


Sounds like there is too much water left in the drum as it goes into the spin cycle, and the centrifugal force of the drum spinning is forcing the wate past the door seal probably, needs the filter cleaning, or the door seal itself may require replacing.

Hotpoint wma 10, rus through cycle till it starts the fast spin it does a few revs, shakes alot, it then trips to the end and prog end light comes on together with the door lock light, it must be unplugged...


Just a thought but you never tampered with the water level on the pressure switch did you? This would give off similar faults. It could be the pressure switch itself or the chamber is partially blocked it could be a broken or loose tacho wire on the motor. Or it could be a fault on the main control board.

My Frigidaire Washer Leaves Stains all over our clothes


Since this happened from day 1, your water may be the problem. Do you have well water? If so, get a softener system. This will get rid of the iron, which is responsible for rust stains. I really doubt that a new machine would cause rust or grease.

Why didn't you do something five years ago when you first noticed this? It will be much more difficult to get a resolution from the manufacturer after5 years.

Hotpoint first edition wma 11 drum bearings removal


Hey kevin that outer cone of the front bearing is a mission im telling ya...

But from experience ive found that by cleaning around it ( i use a metal brush on a drill ) and using wd40 and letting it soak in for a few hours its makes like a lot easier,,

I use a bolster with an end similar to a crow bar to just get inbetween the tiny gap and a very big lump hammer to know out the cone.... Best way knocking it from side to side ie bottom the turn the back half of the drum round and knock the top then the sides,,

hope this helps....

cheers mate..

The water will not drain on my first edition wma 10 hotpoint washing machine so does not spin either any clues to where the filter is???????


Most likely something stuck in the pump. Remove front panel and hose that goes into pump. usually you will see the object. if not remove pump and look inside.
