Special water hose needed?

We need to move w/d to back wall (a quarter turn) of Laundry room, were told when installed last year that we would need a special hose, that standard would not work for this model. Existing hose is about 1 ft too short to move.  Where can I get this "special" hose?

I dont know of of a"special hose". are we talking about water inlet (hot and cold) hoses??drain hose??? or a vent hose for dryer???
1. stainless steel non-bursting fill hoses are available in up to 6' lentgh's
2. drain hose can be extended if need be, i would make it as short of an extension as needed, and use a hose of atleast the existing diameter and make sure that it wont, bent or pinch off after putting into drain pipe
3. dryer venting should be a solid aluminum 4" pipe as shosrt as possible with least amount of elbows needed.
all available at a quaitly home improvemnet store/ hardware store

How do i address a recurrent suds display and subsequent extended rinse cycle on my washer? I have tried using less soap ans always use HE soap. Thx


Unhook the water hoses at the wall and check to make sure the screens are free of debris. The pump is easy to access via the back panel--just two screws. There are blogs available that tell you how to check and replace the pump if necessary. Read all of them before you start. It is often the culprit. Good luck.

My washer is leaking water out of the dispenser area . The hose for the water underneath the dispenser seems to be clogged how do i fix this?


Hi, follow the instruction below to clear the clooged hose.....
  • Pull the washer 2 to 3 feet away from the wall so you have enough room to access the drain pipe.
  • Locate the drain discharge hose where it comes out from the back of the washing machine. Typically it will be a 1 1/2-inch hose and leads to the drain in the floor, wall or laundry tub.
  • Detach the discharge hose from the drain. The hose may be secured by a squeeze clamp or screw clamp or it may just be inserted directly with no clamp. Use pliers for the squeeze clamp, screwdriver for a screw clamp or pull the hose straight up, depending on how it is secured.
  • Insert the pipe snake into the open drain until you feel the clog release. Typically this will be very close to the top rather than several feet down.
  • Check the drain hose section that is attached to the washer. If there is another clogged area, you will be able to see it; snag it with the wire and pull it out.
  • Replace the drain discharge hose into the drain and check all connections to ensure there will be no water escaping.
  • Move the washer back into place. It will now drain properly.

Error code NF? what does that mean?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error NF means No Fill. The washer has tried to fill but was unsuccessful. NF indicates No Flow. There is something that is interrupting the inbound flow of water to the washer, either hot or cold. Sometimes this happens when water service in the area is interrupted, creating an air pocket that causing the water valve not to sense water.

Try running the diagnostic test by—
  • Press the delicates and heavy soil keys together for 3 seconds.
  • You are in the service mode.
  • Now, press wrinkle free key, cold water should start entering.
  • Then, press the cotton sturdy and hot water should flow.
  • To exit the test mode, either unplug the machine or press the delicate and heavy soil again for 3 seconds.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

How do I drain the barrel


If this is a top loading washer, an easy method of draining the wash tub is to pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and lower it into a bucket. Gravity will allow the water to drain. If the washer is in a laundry room or utility room with a drain in the floor, you can simply lay the drain hose on the floor and allow it to run into the drain.

A less messy method is to use a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the drain line to pull the water from the wash tub. Most of the these top loaders have a capacity of about 30 gallons, so you will need to empty the shop vac a few times to empty the tub. Make sure you place the drain hose back into the standpipe when you need to empty the vacuum or gravity will force the water on to your floor.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Kenmore front-loader washer doesn't drain all the time. Seems pretty random. Took off the front cover and checked the filter basket several times - didn't see any evidence of blockage in the pump. When...


If your washer won't drain, check these:
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Water hose extender


depending on how far you need to extend the hose, you have to be careful not to extend it too far, or else it may not pump out properly or may even siphon the water out of you machine. I would suggest calling or going to your local appliance parts distibutor and asking them if there is a special hose for extending the drain hose. Make sure you take your model and serial number with you or have it handy if you call. You may be able to use a normal type of hose , but they ussually kink or collasps on the inside . Either way a quick check with the parts distibutor might save you alot of trouble.
