Strong smell during sensing cycle

During the sensing cycles it puts out a smell like something is getting really warm or hot then it goes away during the washing and drying cycles. What could be the problem?

Visually inspect the heating element to make sure there is nothing on it, like plastic residue or something like that. You might also want to clean the dishwasher with vinegar, CLR, or Dishwasher Magic ( http://www.appliancepartspros.com/accessories.aspx?part_id=2675393&cat=62&rdr=%2faccessories.aspx%3fcat%3d62 ) Hope this helps, APP Tech http://www.AppliancePartsPros.com

No hot water coming in during the wash cycle.


Hello Stephen Foster - Based on the symptoms you are describing, typically, the unit could possibly have a faulty timer, temperature sensor or water valve. Confirm that the holes are properly connected. Try resetting the washer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn the unit back on. However, if the issue persists, it is always a good idea to have a service tech properly diagnose your appliance.

Washer make noise doing spin cycle smell smoke make the power cord warm to touch


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site Joe. Usually, if a washer makes noises during spinning, it means the drive basket is broken. Make sure your pulley's are not sticking and rubbing the belt. This causes the basket to be unstable during the spin cycle. As far as the smell of smoke, try checking the belt and make sure it is not worn or loose. Inspect the motor to check for noises, grinding, or smoke. Your transmission may be burning up. Usually, the cord will remain warm, but not hot. The washer may be working extra if a belt is sticking or during the spinning process. If you have any other questions Joe, just let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

Plasric dish has fused to the element


Use strong kitchen shears to cut away as much of the bulk as you can. Without gouging the round element, scrape it with the kitchen shear blade and run a short cycle. When the drying cycle has run for several minutes (you will smell that the element is heating)
open the DW and again use the shears blade edge to scrape the residual plastic from the element. You may need to repeat to get it all removed.


After you have cleaned it up, do some checking during some loads to make sure the heating element is not being turned on continuously during all cycles. You have not provided the the make/model number, so it is hard to get more specific.

When my machine goes through the rinse cycle it will only fill with hot water. It fills with warm water during the wash cycle.


Your hoses are reversed.

Cold water will not stop filling during rinse


while the unit is filling in the warm cycle. reach behind and shut off the hot water tap.I bet the water flow stops filling, if so, you would need to change the inlet valve on the machine. You see, in warm, if the cold is not filling, you still hear the hot filling and the unit will advance. The rinse cycles are mostly "cold" only. if the valve is not opening it will not allow it to advance from the rinse section on the board.

Good luck!

Kenmore washer series 80, Clothes still soapy


If you are getting no water spray during the rinse cycle that would cause the soapy clothes issue.

Are you getting cold water during the wash/rinse cycles? If you have the machine set to warm/warm you may only be getting hot water while the final spin is calling for cold.

If you have cold water available then the timer is not calling for the water spray. The problem is either in the mixing valve or the timer.

Water temperature


It sounds like your water inlet valve (also known as a Mixing Valve on some washers) HOT solenoid is sticking open. When you select either a hot or cold wash cycle, separate solenoids open or close to allow only cold water to enter the washer on the cold wash cycles and hot water to enter on the hot cycles. If the hot solenoid stays open, you will have hot water mixing with your cold water during the cold cycles. The result is warm water. I would recommend you replace the water inlet valve. This is a job the average DIYer can do. Please post back with your model number and I can assist you with locating a part number and/or give you specifics on how to access the valve to replace it.

Clothes smell musty


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!
