Hi, is your water valves on, if so check the water inlet on the washer for continuity. If no continuity than replace it.

Washer had just started and i started to smell something, and all of a sudden a noise came from the washer and then smoke came from machine really bad, the noise sounded like air escaping


Looks like something is short circuited & due to which there is burning smell coming out of the machine. Disconnect the machine immediately & inspect the insides of the machine. Locate the burnt motor or burnt wires. You heard the noise coming out of the motor. It could be dislocated brushes due to which the motor could not rotate & in turn it burnt your motor.

I have a Frigidare Fornt Loader washing machine. Every once in awhile when it is empty and we open the door the next morning water comes flooding. There is no way to predict it , just happens but not all...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning (not closing completely) water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Take all power off the washer then turn one or the other off and see which one is causing the problem. Sorry but it needs replacing. If it only happens when there is power supplied to the washer, a service call is required to confirm that it is not something else- like the control board not feeding the correct voltage to the valve ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

The washer smells bad. We have taken it apart and cleaned between the tubs. The agitator turns in both directions


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Hope your filter is clean. Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

You can give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help, can't you. Thanks.

Washing machine burnt wires?


It could be that the drive belt was slipping and got heated up. Look underneath the machine to see if the belt looks burnt or shredded. There may be small pieces of rubber on the floor under the machine. If the belt is OK then the motor may have overheated (but usually there is an overload switch in it to prevent burning up.)

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning


This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.

Stinky clothes


The big door seal is probably the problem. Put on gloves and using a solution of Laundry detregent and hot water and rags, carefully wipe clean all the folds of the seal. It will be icky. Next run a cycle with some detergent and oxyclean or bleach if you have it.

Especially during warm weather, damp clothing left in a front loader mildew slightly very quickly- you can't really see much but you can smell it! So get the clothes in to the dryer immediately. You'll want to relaunder the smelly clothing after you have cleaned the washer.

Good luck to you and Thank You using FiX YA!
