DIal is misaligned!

Over the last few months I have manged to ruin loads and loads of clothes due to colours running. This has come as a horrible shock as I only ever wash things at 40 degrees...or so I thought. Today, having checked oh so carefully that the dial was set to setting 4 (40 degree wash), I happened to feel the washing machine when it was on to discover it was really hot - at leat 60 degrees. The dial must be misaligned - as number 3 is 60 degrees. Help?

Washer belt keeps coming off

This issue is likely due to misalignment between the driving and driven pulleys. This misalignment can occur if one of the pulleys is loose on its shaft. You may be able to inspect the alignment to see if such a misalignment exists.
Another possibility is that your machine may have a belt tensioning idler. If so, it could be misaligned, worn out (does not rotate smoothly when the load is removed from it) or have loose mounting screws.
You will need to spend some time watching the belt while the machine is running in order to evaluate conditions at the time of failure.
Keep hands and loose clothing out of harms way.

My zanussi machine has started making a very loud noise since it was moved out to replace the flooring underneath (not a big deal) but this has worsened with violent shaking and creaking sounds during the...

Clothes with dark streaks or marks are often the result of a drum that is misaligned due to worn rollers and/or bearings. It's also possible that the drum is out of alignment due to the move (especially if it was tipped at a considerable angle). Try lifting and gently turning the drum to see if you can isolate a squeak or scraping noise that would point to the misalignment.

The marks happen when clothes get pinched between the moving drum and the stationary part adjacent to it.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

I have a whirlpool top load washing machine model no. 6ALSQ8000JQ2. it is about 7 years old and does not have an area that collects the lint in the machine. Previously this was not a problem, but in the...

You have taken the necessary steps to reduce the lint problem. It seems they have not worked sufficiently. Another lint factor is due to HARD WATER.
You may have to disassemble the washer and remove the inner wash tub. On the bottom of the wash tub is a self cleaning lint filter. It may be gummed up with detergent and lint not allowing it to do its job. It will have to be manually cleaned.

My bosch does not always completely wring the clothes out at the end of the cycle causing me to have to put the clothes through another wash. Has anyone had this problem? the end of the wash, I then set the dial to DRAIN, then press start.  I wait for a special drain cycle to run.  Then, I set the dial to SPIN, and wait for a special spin cycle to run.  The clothes are much dryer and spun out after this process.  I'm not happy with the washer, it came with my new condo.  BUT, I'm trying to learn how to use it.....

Bleach ruining clothes

Why use bleach unless it is to whiten curtains, ACDO make a specific product for that purpose

Use a pre-wash program and the correct multi - layered tablet or old fashioned powder

Both products contain bleach and whiteners as part of their construction.

Make sure that you use the correct one for coloured items as they will remove colour

Clothes are dirtier after washing...

The problem with your front load washer is a broken rear bearing. If you remove the rear panel, you will see brown "gunk" all over.
If you want to repair it on your own, order this:
Good Luck!

Makes a grnding sound when washing(not always) & does not spin all the water

This problem happen to me a few months back--washer was 6 months old. A technician came out and told me that I must have loaded the washer after the water was in the tub. He stated that I must load my washer prior to running the water in because the water fill amount is based on weight; therefore it was now weighing too much. Go figure...have always loaded the washer with water first and clothes last. I always put clothes in first then the water--I must say, the problem has not reappear.

Hope this helps.
