SOURCE: asko washer door won't close. Worked it manually

you would start at the top back by losening the screws that hold the upper cover on the machine and when you remove these screws you would then slide the panel to the rear of the machine. nest you will see the rubber gaskey along the door has a metal ring simply use a screw driver without ripping the rubber boot to remove the ring. After this then u can remove the screws which hold the front panel which also has the door on it the part you are describing sounds like the door hasp or the catch the holds the door closed. because it is an asko your probably better off going to manufacturer to order your parts because this is a foreign model. please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation and if i can answer anything further please message me back
Thanks again
Rick

SOURCE: WAY too much shaking

Take out the four "shipping\travel" bolts in the back of the machine. Read the manual- it will tell you how to do this. John

SOURCE: LG TROMM -WM1814CW I bought the washer and dryer

The first thing to do is to CHECK IN AND AROUND THE RUBBER DOOR BOOT (called a bellow) for small articles of clothing (like socks and underwear) that may have gotten lodged in behind the rubber. Pull the rubber back where it meets the wash tub and look behind it. It is common for small items to get stuck here, become forgotten and start to mildew. You should check this area after each wash and clean it periodically to get rid of the formation of soap scum, mold, and mildew. HINT: When you get ready to wash a load of towels, take a dirty towel and clean the door boot thoroughly (including the areas behind the rubber). Immediately place the towel in the wash and run it on a sanitary cycle. This way you eliminate the need for cleaning rags.

PERIODICALLY RUN THE WASHER ON A CLEANING CYCLE. Place the washer on the hottest setting you have (usually a Sanitary cycle) with nothing but bleach in the wash tub. Some newer models actually have a "Clean Cycle" available now just for this purpose. This helps keep the wash tub, drain lines and pump sanitized.

CHECK AND CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER. Accumulations of debris in the drain pump filter can also cause odors. HINT: If you own a shop vac, pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line. This will drain any residual water left in the tub, pump and drain lines BEFORE you remove the drain pump cover. This will prevent a messy clean up later.

LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN IF POSSIBLE. When not in use, leave the door open to allow the tub to air out and to keep mold and mildew from forming on the door bellow. I know this may not be desirable in some households with small children. If too much mildew forms on the rubber and it cannot be removed, replacement of the bellow may be required.

NOTE: This problem is common with front loader style washing machines. The doors on these machines have an air tight/water tight seal that is great for sealing the washer during the wash cycle, but can be terrible for collecting small garments and for not allowing the tub to properly air out when not in use. Following these simple preventive measures can go a long way towards preventing harmful mold and mildew, and towards extending the life of the door bellow and pump.

SOURCE: Hoover washer/dryer VHW854D SHOWS ERROR

I have exactly the same problem. Hoover Service Centre told me to tip a bucket of warm water into the drum and leave for 5 minutes before switching it back on. The idea is that the machine may be affected by the cold weather. Needless to say it made no difference and Error 11 remains - I am expecting an engineer on Thursday 23 I'll keep you posted on the outcome.

What does ds mean on Samsung high efficiency washing machine


A dS code means that the door was opened during the cycle. (At least this is true for the WF210ANW/XAA washer.) Close the door tightly and restart the wash cycle.

If the error persists, you probably have a problem with the door latch.
Samsung has the manual and trouble-shooting FAQs for many of their appliances here: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/ . Click on Washers & Dryers (in the rightmost column) then use the drop-down menus to select Washers and then the model.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of your washer for additional assistance.

How do I replace the oring gasket on a front loading samsung wash machine model number wf219anw/xaa


I can tell you how to fix one on the WF218ANW/XAA washer. Your model may be the same. You need to take the top panel off the washer by taking out two screws on back panel. You need to remove the control panel and place it on the top of the unit (it is attached with electrical cord). You need to talk out the detergent tray (press the clip in the middle). You then take off the front panel. it is not necessary to take off the door; however, to remove the panel you will need to remove the door latch mechanism on the inside of the door. To remove front panel, there are also two screws on the bottom of the unit. Once you have the front panel off, remove the old gasket by loosening the two springs rings. Pay attention to how the gasket is installed before removing. Replace gasket by installing inner portion first and replacing spring ring and tightening. Put all the parts back on the washer and install the outer portion of the gasket (with the spring ring). Samsung charges $130 to do this in my area and it's a pain in the neck.
