SOURCE: kenmore washing machine 80 series

check for kinks in the pipe or restrictions to the flow in the pipes before it gets to the washer, if all is ok then check the filter on the outside of the water connector on the machine for dirt

if you confirm all is clear and the flow of water is not the problem before the machine, replace the cold water solenoid

SOURCE: Maytag Washing Machine - water will not shut off and overflows tub

this could be either a bad pressure switch, located behind the control panel. it has a small usually black hose running down to the tub. more than likely since this is an older machine the hose has become worn in one spot and is leaking air. replace the hose and that shold do it. if not its the presasure switch.

SOURCE: water runs into tub but does not fill?

be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.

Washer will not spin clothes dry...full of water and wont work. f-21 keeps flashing.


your drain pump is clogged,So the first thing you need to do is,Push the start button again you well hear the machine come on you well hear the pump its trying to drain after about 30 seconds,It well shut off,so push button again watch the machine when the water goes down a certain level.The clothes well start to spin. Now after they get done spinning,push the cancel button.you should be able to hear the door unlock,remove the clothes.Now put Draino Max gel or Rooto-Routor gel in tub of machine and let it set for about 1-2hrs.Now star cycle on heavy-duty wash hot water,it may take a couple of times but it well clean your machine don't mix any othe soaps or bleach during this time. then rinse machine out again to get rid of gel.see if this work for you,are machine does the same thing,its because of dog or cat hair,or something was in a pocket like tissue,or strings from clothes.thanks

Water building up during the dry cycle and clothes getting wetter


1) Make sure wash cycle is 100% finished (sometimes dryer will start before - usu on synthetic cycle & allows water to continue flowing in)

2) Manually start the dry cycle after you ensure wash cycle is finished and push in the wash cycle button.

Hope that helps! If not, you may need a new control module (I did - hope you don't!)

I bought my LG Intellowasher WD-8016C second hand and have no manual. Does it need to be washed occasionally with washing sda. There is a bit of mould around the seal. How do I clean this.


Manual suggests Exterior with household detergent. Do not use methylated spirits, diluents or similar products.
For internal, dry around the washer door and run washer through a complete cycle using just hot water... and repeat if needed.
Not sure about mould.... not in manual.

Hotpoint BWD129 1200 spin - unwanted drying cycles


This is more a workaround than a solution. When you choose the washing programme (say "D") and push the on/off button, two lights will flash, the "door locked" and the "drying" one. Now turn the "drying programme" button until the "drying" light stops flashing (in my case, this is true when I set the drying programme to 40°C). Then start the washing mashine.

Seems like the function of the drying programme button has shifted against the settings written on the button...don't ask me why! Of course, no guarantee but works for me. Please let me know if it does for you.

Washer isn't properly draining in normal wash cycle and start/pause button has to be pushed to restart washer 2-3 times to finish cycle. When cycle finally finishes, a 'drain cycle' has to be run to remove...


remove bottom cover ckd pump for possible restriction..most have acess port on front if not remove hoses also pump impeller may be slipping on shaft or have broken fins

Dry cycle


Try setting the washer dial to the stop setting at the end of setting number 4 then set the dryer timer and turn on the machine.  This works for mine to get the dryer to run by itself.  It should begin about 30 seconds later, when the door locks.  Hope this helps.

Some magic happened today!

I got the thing (wd-12331ad) to dry without having to run a wash first!

Also, I seemed to get it to do a spin only run...

The way to get it to dry :
-----------------------------------
(for a set time - I've not managed to get any of the auto-dry settings to work)
from machine being off:
> press the power button.
> press the "Dry" button 'til "Time" lights up
>>> press "Dry" again to get the desired duration
> press the spin button 'til the spin speed shows blank/ the RPM light goes out.
> press "Start/Pause"

It will then dry for the number of minutes specified!

Not perfect, I know but that's serious progress from where I was before; having to re-run a wash cycle to get it to dry anything...

Something to note:
- The machine worryingly sounds like it's starting to fill with water when you start the "Just Dry" program which scared me at first. BUT it stops after a second or so (I think it's just cleaning out the detergent tray so it doesn't bake any leftover powder)


For "spin only" from machine being off:
-------------------------------------------------------
> press the power button.
> press the spin button
>>> if you press "Start/Pause" now you get a 13 minute 1200 spin cycle
>>> press the spin button again and then "Start/Pause", it seems to drain itself for 1 minute
>>> pressing spin repeatedly, cycles through the spin speeds.


Things I don't know:
----------------------------
- I don't know if you can combine spin and heat.
- I don't know whether the auto-dry programs are available
- I don't know what other programs are available from the "Dry"/"Spin" buttons

...So if anyone does any experimenting, please let us know the results, you never know, we might end up with a half way useful set of instructions! I'm starting to think the machine's not half as bad as it seems when following the manual alone.

Hope that helps.
Will
