    Well, we now think that it's the switch that is causing it to be slow..It would stop after every cycle. It would stop after it got done washing and would stop after the rinse cycle and it's the same with the spin cycle. It did that until one day it just wouldn't spin at all.

Turn off the water to the washer. Remove the hoses from the back of the washer. Carefully remove the little filter screens from the hose connections in the back of the washing machine. Clean and replace them. Your laundry should be done is less than 20 minutes now.

If it continues to make funny noise, write back.

What would make my washing machine leak water and make a funny noise?

this sounds like the main bearings have worn out (they start to rumble first) when they start to brake up they rip apart the water seals that are between them and the back of the washers drum, and then it starts to leak water, to test them to see if there claped out,,,, open the door and try lifting the top of the drum lightly , if it lifts a bit then drops back when you let go its the bearings going, now spin it by hand and you will here a rumbleing noise or grinding noise, when the washer is running on spin it will sound like the end of the world is coming???? im sorry to tell you this part is not cheep to fix, its 2-3 hours work?

Machine runs, but clothing won't dry

It sounds like your heating element is shot. The elements on this machine are very sensitive and if you use too much cleaning fluid the part will wear down after a while. You will need to get the part replaced (yuck) and start to use a little less washer fluid. Please let me know about your experience with the company (
