I have atop loader washing machine and a friend has just used it .Unfortunately they filled it with clothes, forgot to close the flaps onthe drum, closed the lid and set it running. The drum has spun aroundand got wedged half way round but is now completely stuck. Does anyoneknow of any way to release the drum (full of clothes) and fix it?It is a French brand called Brandt. Washer model FV 515.Many thanks, Carl.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 Series - water wont fill to full load

remove edge decore trims from left and right side front of control panel8b608f8.jpg
remove phillips screws from bottom corners of contol panel
remove knob from water level selector
raise control panel ~1 inch then flip over backwords on pivots
depress lock tab on right/underside of water level control body where it touches metal mount plate
rotate water level control body 45deg anti clockwise
pull body off
top side of body next to knob shaft is 1/8 hex head bolt
turn clockwise to rais water level
anticlockwise to lower water level
machine can be operated with this part not fitted so can check level. fill, adjust screw, fill will start again, adjust screw, until water level is correct
reinstall in reverse order
Incidentally, the cause is a VERY small wire spring inside the control body that is not really up to the task, and stretches over years.
Its a common occurrence, and I make this repair, on callouts, no parts required, couple times a month you may have to flip the switch to reset to get the water to restart filling

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.

My washing machine fills with pieces of black matter. I have done machine clean washes and it still happens every time, covering my clothes in black pieces that look like cardboard. Please help my - the...


Hi mine does exactly the same! I have to call in my washing machine technician more often (he told me this would happen with a top loader as opposed to a front loader, boy was he right!!) and he cleans out the drum. Mostly it is the fabric softener which is too thick. I water mine down to 50/50 and I do another spin after my final wash. I also empty the filter of water at the side/bottom of the machine. This annoying problem is caused by the way the drum turns on a top loader as opposed to the front loader. My top loader cannot heat water automatically either like a front loader, and I think this also adds to the problem as hot/boiling water would dissolve all that soap/fabric softener. Hope this helps.

New LG2101 front loader drum noise


Try rotating the drum by hand and see if you can feel a 'hard spot' If your machine is new you should have a warranty. If so, ring the service line and ask a consultant about the noise. The may even be able to listen via the phone and advise you...Good luck .....Nomess

Clothes dirtier after wash than before


hello. the hot water and bleach partially cleaned some of the builtup residue in your tub. If you can find a product called CLR [calcium, lime, rust] use a cup of that in your machine with a few old towels. Run your longest and hottest cycle. Repeat if necessary. Joe

How much water does it use


is the level above the drum by at least by 2" during a normal wash fill? are the clothes getting wet through? if so this may be an eco type washer allowing a minimal amount of water in. does the level get higher on a rinse fill?

Unfortunately - some repairs are expensive (labor wise) and not financially sound to repair.
