I washed a heavy blanket in the machine and it was really rocking around. It stopped about halfway through the cycle and beeped E3. It runs and rinses but won't spin quickly. I am in China. I don't know the exact model. It's just a small, basic washing machine. It starts with an X and ends in a 10. I can't remember the rest b/c I'm at work right now. Can you help or give me a website to download the manual? I can't find one. Thanks! Maureen

If this is moldy looking you should use 1 cup of bleach in the drum with no clothes on the longest wash cycle with the hottest water. But I believe this is oil from the drive train and the seals on the bottom of the drum are going bad. When you wash something heavy like the blanket, it leaks.
The water levels in you machine are set by a pressure activated diaphragm that is controlled by the knob with the levels settings around it or by the computer if you have a press button type.. Heavy or long wash cycles use the most water with light washes using the least. So to explain if you are washing blankets and you have a full 7.5 kg load to wash you would set the water level at high and heavy or full wash. You can disconnect the tube to the control unit but if you do that the bowl will keep filling over the top and the machine would not know when to start washing as the control unit reads enough water and moves the power to the motor while closing of the water solenoid. If you follow the instruction in the operators manual you will find that you save the most water at any wash requirement.
The machine identifies and indicates some operational errors through a series of beeps.E3 is also listed in that beep.the meaning of e3 is nothing but it is telling to call the service engineer.This error signal is due to Thermistor open/short.Thanks for your question.
I have the same washer and it will do this if I have put a load of clothing that is not even in weight for example I washed sheets with a heavy blanket and I then had to run the Drain Spin cycle. Hope this help
Believe it or not.....its almost always the cloths ( heavy blankets) that one places inside. TRY:: In the spin cycle if the load is unbalanced the TUB will rock and make that "loose drum out of alignment" noise. STOP the machine and open the door ( IF IT IS A TOP LOADER ) realign the cloths (heavy or more then one blanket) so that it is EVENLY spaced through out the tub.Start the machine again.If it does it again, stop the machine and REALIGN the cloths (blanket !!) again. p.s. there is a simpler way of doing it but I don't want you to loose your hand in the process.
With a heavy blanket you probably have an out-of-balance condition which doesn't let the machine spin out and drain. This would keep the door lock from opening. Try hitting the Stop button twice. This should cancel the cycle and let the door lock open after a little while. Then either redistribute the load or add some items and run a Spin and Drain cycle.
