Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

We have an AWM 295-1000 frontloader and it keeps stopping during the washing cycle. We need to wind the dial to the next click to re-start the machine several times during each cycle. Also the fabric softner doesn't dispense as it should and the washing comes out not smelling nice.

SOURCE: fabric softner

Remove the dispenser tray. Inspect the area just above the fabric softener portion of the dispenser. There should be a series of holes where water feeds into the tray during the rinse cycle. Sometimes these holes become clogged with fabric softener residue. If the holes are clogged, water will never dispense the fabric softener out and it will stay in the tray. If you take some cotton swabs and meticulously clean all the holes out, I bet your problem will go away. Let me know if this was helpful to you.

SOURCE: Fabric Sofner won't dispense

hi there remove the soap drawer then remove the cover over the softener compartment you will more than likely find a blockage in the cover siphon or the down tube on the drawer

SOURCE: Fabric softner is building up in dispenser

Same deal - I have to soak up all the residual water in the softener dispenser between washes. (The detergent and bleach compartments are fine).

SOURCE: Kenmore front load washer will not dispense fabric softner

I've had this same problem and solved it by removing the detergent/bleach/softener dispenser drawer from the machine and seriously cleaning out all of the "gunk" from the drawer and from inside the drawer area on washer. Sometimes I have had to repeat the cleaning and then the fabric softener begins dispensing again. I have model # 417.43042200 but it may work on all the Kenmore front loading washers.

If you have changed the brushes are satisfied that they are fitted correctly, then it can be a couple of possibilities.
1- The motor itself is faulty.Even though it does the wash o/k it is possible the spin winding is faulty.
2- The prograqmmer is faulty.
Make sure the pump is working o/k, and that all the water has drained out, as this would stop it spinning

Can''t get my clothes out... water still inside


does it have a dial that you can manually turn to start the next cycle? You can usually drain the water by pulling the drain hose out from the wall drain behind hte washer....( usually just shoved in the drain not attached) but be aware that when you hold the hose below the water level in your washer it will start to drain. Then perhaps the door will unlatch.

The machine does not automatically go from one cycle to the next


You have a pitted timer most likely. First i would check out the lid switch which you may be tripping while messing with the timer. And what brand and age.

F2 code is a drain issue. If you are not using he detergent you can cause slow draining and then you will get the code. Try using less detergent. Also, try disconnecting the power to the washer to reset controls.

Ariston frontloader - dial spinning around and won't start a cycle


Your bearings are almost certainly gone which would explain the noise not an easy job or cheap . Normally it would consist of a tub change or at best a bearing hub . As for the clicking round of the selector Iwould suggest poss the heater or brush fault. As ofr price you'd have to ask your local repair man. Worst case sinario approx £200 .00
