Sir,,

F30 has something to do with the dispensing system.


If thedispenser ever gets opened in the middle of a cycle or while it isdispensing, the washer will begin making a grinding noise. (This noisemay be the grinding noise) U can simply pull out the dispenser; it comesall of the way out without any tools. I think maybe the washer sometimes gets confused if thedispensing is interrupted.

    Fault code F30 = Open probe connection.

    1. (F30 or F31) Check
    resistance at room temperature & compare to
    *RTD
    Sensor resistance chart. If resistance does not match the RTD chart
    replace RTD Sensor Probe. Check Sensor wiring harness between EOC &
    Sensor Probe connector.




    2. (F30 or F31) Check
    resistance at room temperature, if less than 500 ohms, replace
    *RTD
    Sensor Probe. Check for shorted Sensor Probe harness between EOC &
    Probe connector.


    If you cannot perform these tests yourself i would advise an engineer to be called out

    kind regards

How to operate the washing machines front load washer brandt bf850


Hi,
  • Open the front door and load the clothing into the washing machine. Check the owner's manual for the maximum load size. Overloading the washing machine may interfere with its ability to spin the clothes and rinse them clean.

  • Fill the detergent receptacle on the front of the washing machine, making sure not to fill it past the indicated line. Always use a liquid detergent that is designed for front-loading washing machines.
  • Add bleach or fabric softener, if needed. Most front-loading washing machines have a section for fabric softener inside the detergent receptacle. Check the instructions on the bleach to find out when it should be added to the washing machine.
  • Close the front door of the washing machine and make sure it locks into place. The machine usually will not turn on unless the door is securely locked.
  • Check the owner's manual to find out how to select the different options and wash cycles. As a general rule, use warm or cold water for most types of colored clothing. Hot water should only be used when washing white cotton items.
  • Start the front-loading washing machine and let it run through the entire wash, rinse and spin cycles before opening the door to unload the clothing.

  • Please rate this solution. Regards.

    Maytag a112 manual on how to add bleach AND fabric softener


    Hi
    Choosing Your Detergent, Bleach, and Fabric Softener..
    Learn what the different items you need to wash your laundry.
    Liquid Laundry Detergent and Fabric Softeners
    When using liquid laundry detergent, you do not want to poor it directly on your laundry. The dyes in the liquid laundry soap could stain your clothing. You will want to start your washing machine and add the liquid laundry soap while the water is filling the washing machine.
    You then can add your laundry once you have about and eighth of the washing machine tub filled. This will ensure your laundry doesn't become stained by the detergent. You should only add the amount that is poured into the cup to the fill line. When you add more, you could find yourself wading through mounds of bubbles overflowing from your washing machine.
    The same reasoning applies to liquid fabric softeners. However, liquid fabric softeners are added to the washing cycle after the initial washing cycle is finished. You will want to add the fabric softener once the washing machine has filled with water and started to agitate. This keeps the fabric softener from touching the laundry and will work it into your clothing better.
    Powdered Laundry Detergent
    You will want to add one cup of loose laundry detergent to your washing machine in the same manner you would do the liquid laundry detergent. By doing this, the powdered laundry detergent will dissolve easier.
    Bleach
    When adding bleach to your laundry, there is a small triangular cup in the corner of your washing machine. By adding one cup of bleach into that dispenser, the bleach will be added to the laundry at a precise time during the wash cycle.
    Setting Your Washing Machine
    Most washing machines have three or four cycles. For instance, the Maytag Washer I have has four cycles, regular, permanent press, delicate, and soak.
    Regular Washing Cycle
    The regular cycle is used for the following types of clothes and other apparel:
    • Jeans
    • Towels
    • Blankets
    • Sheets
    • Quilts
    • Bedspreads
    The soil types for this cycle are heavy, normal, and light. This means clothes or other articles that are lightly too heavily soiled should be washed in this cycle. This is due to the washing cycles can be set from a minimum of eight to fourteen minutes maximum. You can use all three of the water temperatures in this cycle.
    1Permanent Press Washing Cycle
    The permanent press washing cycle is used on the clothes that may or may not need to be ironed.
    Such as:
    • Blouses
    • Shirts
    • T-shirts
    • Under garments. This would be your unmentionables and socks.
    • Jackets
    • Sheets
    • Baby Clothing
    The soil types for this wash cycle are normal and light. The washing times for the permanent press cycle are six minutes to ten minutes. You can use all three washing temperature modes for this cycle as well.
    Delicate Washing Cycle
    The delicate washing cycle is normally used for sweaters, cotton, silks, and other fabrics that need to be washed with care.
    The soil types for the delicate cycle are normal and light. The washing times for the delicate cycle are four and six minutes. It is best to wash your delicate clothes in warm or cold water. Always wash clothing that is more than forty percent cotton in cold water to prevent shrinking.
    Soak Washing Cycle
    The soak cycle would be used for heavily soiled clothing, such as, football and baseball uniforms. This will help rid the uniforms of caked on mud and grass stains.
    You can also use this cycle if you wish to only bleach your white's once a week or once a month with bleach.
    Washing Your Laundry
    Choose the cycle you need for your laundry. Add the laundry detergent, fabric softener, and bleach (remember regular liquid bleach is for white clothes only.) Start the washing machine and let fill to dissolve the dry detergent or to mix in the liquid detergent.
    Now add your clothes to the washing machine. Clothes the lid so the washing machine will continue to wash your clothes.
    If you are using a Laundromat, put your clothes in the washing area and shut the lid or door. Add your detergent and other cleaning items in the correct compartments. Put in the correct amount of change so the washer will start.

    Suggestion: Your wash could be overloaded; put in clothes within machine's capacity. What is written in your manual's max clothes capacity. If your heater is on; switch off machine and wall plug. Reset the machine with the heater on minimum & resume your normal cycle.
