What lime scale / detergent remover can be used for regular cleaning of my front loader.


Front-loading washing machines are energy efficient and use less detergent than top-loaders, but they sometimes have a tendency to harbor mold and unpleasant smells. By giving your washing machine a quick clean once a month, you'll keep your front-loader fresh, which means cleaner clothes, too. This eco-friendly method doesn't use bleach, costs only pennies to make, and comes together with ingredients you already have on hand.
What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups vinegar
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Scrub sponge
Directions:
  1. Start by mixing together the baking soda and water in a small bowl. This is going to be the "detergent" for cleaning the washing machine. Pour the vinegar into a measuring cup and head over to your washing machine.
  2. Add the baking soda mixture to the detergent container of your machine and pour the vinegar into the drum. Set your washer to normal load at the hottest water setting. Close the door and start the machine, letting it do all the hard work for you. The baking soda and vinegar naturally break up mineral deposits and any mold growth while cleaning and refreshing your washing machine.
  3. Use a clean scrubber to rub around the opening of the washing machine, removing stubborn mold or residue. Wipe clean with fresh water.
  4. Your washing machine is sparkling clean and ready to do a load of laundry! Give your front-loader a cleaning once a month to keep your clothes smelling fresh and your machine working in tip-top condition.

There seems to be water being retained in the machine


The machine will always leave about 3 cup fulls of water in the bottom but usually you cant see it inside the metal drum.It's possible that the pump is restricted & not flowing out properly,there should be whats cauld a button trap,a little flap door at the lower front of the machine that should be opened & cleaned regularly.Alternatively water might be sigphoning back thru the drain hose into the machine.I hope this was helpfull.

How to clean Kenmore Oasis Washer. I cannot find my user guide.


Hello there:
please use these simple steps
What You Will Need
  • Lemon Juice, Lime Juice or Vinegar
  • Borax
  • Spray Cleaner
  • Paper Towels
  • Q-tips
  • Bucket
  • Vacuum with hose attachment
Important Safety Tip: Before attempting to clean your washing machine, it is important to UNPLUG YOUR MACHINE. NEVER attempt to clean your washing machine when it is still plugged in as you run the risk of electrocution!
Cleaning the Washing Machine:
  1. Start by using the spray cleaner and paper towels to wipe down the top, front, and sides of the washing machine. This step alone makes a big difference in the appearance of your machine.
  2. Next, we will work on cleaning out the inside of the machine.
  3. Spray some cleaner onto a couple of paper towels and use it to wipe down the underside of the lid, and under the lip of the washer.
  4. Now it’s time to clean the basin of the washer. Fortunately, the machine will do most of the work for you. You will need to run several cycles to get the machine completely clean.
  5. Begin by filling the washing machine using the hot water and largest load setting.
  6. Add 2 cups of lemon or lime juice if you have rust problems or 2 cups of vinegar for odor problems. If you have both problems, run a cycle of each.
  7. Allow the washing machine to run through a complete wash and rinse cycle.
  8. Fill the washer a second time with hot water on the largest load setting.
  9. Add 2 cups of bleach to the water. This will aid in stain removal.
  10. Allow the washing machine to run through a complete wash and rinse cycle.
  11. If all of the stains are removed, run an additional cycle without adding anything to the water. This will allow any remaining residue to be rinsed away thoroughly.
  12. Remove the bleach dispenser and fabric softener dispenser and soak them in a bucket of warm water.
  13. When they have soaked long enough to loosen most of the build-up, remove them from the water and lay them on a paper towel.
  14. Spray them with the spray cleaner and wipe away any dirt using the paper towels. Use Q-tips to remove dirt from corners and tight areas.
  15. Dry the dispensers and return them to their original places in the machine.
  16. Use the vacuum with the hose attachment to vacuum all around and under the washing machine. A large amount of dust tends to accumulate behind the washer and dryer, so take extra care in vacuuming all the dirt away, especially from cords and electrical outlet areas. This not only makes it cleaner, it helps to alleviate a possible fire hazard.
  17. This is a good time to check the hoses and make sure they are securely attached. If not, you may be mopping the floor soon too!
Additional Tips and Advice:
  • If you have stubborn stains on the inside of your machine, there are cleaning products designed for washing machines that are available at most hardware and home improvement stores.
  • If your clothes have picked up the odor from your machine, wash them with a cup of borax.
  • Front loading washers tend get a build-up over time that leads to unpleasant odors. There are natural cleaners available to remove the fungus and get rid of the odor. However, to keep it away, you may need to change your detergent and/or fabric softener.

KENMORE ELITE SMART WASH QUIET PAK 4 FRONT LOADER,


Now this is a drain issue from the pump, clean out or check drain hose position to make sure hose isnt in water. Front loader right? kick panel under door has two screws, 1/4 or Torx T20 will remove them. You will see a clean out screw handle that holds junk. Use a trash bag wrapped around the clean out to catch water and debris..
