    My machine wouldn't stop spinning, even when pushing in the button. I unplugged it, but when you plug it back in, it's making a humming noise.

Daewoo DWCLD1013 washer & dryer The cycle keeps getting stuck on spin at around 10minutes, at which time it keeps going round and round with no actual fast spinning, until it stops about 20 minutes...


The cycle that the machine is stuck in is in fact the empty cycle, just before the spin kicks in. It is staying there because it has a problem evacuating all the water. The machine won't go into spin until all the water is gone and after a set time ( 20 minutes is unusually long, most machines stop after about 10,, but I'm not familiar with Daewoo), the attempt to empty is aborted and the machine stops.

Your problem therefore is either:

The filter for the empty pump is clogged with debris (far and away the most likely) you will need to locate and clean the filter

The EXIT to the drain is blocked, check the empty pipe is not blocked

The empty pump has failed (you would usually expect to hear the pump rumming, but it may not be a noise that you are familiar with).

First and second items are easy to fix, the 3rd is a pump replacement, which isn't that hard, but depends on your level of DIY skill

I have a maytag neptune washer top load the washer stays in wash cycle and will not go to next cycle.


Clean out the pump. Ours was doing that as well, when our mechanic looked at it he could find nothing wrong with it so he looked at the pump and it was full of mud and junk. He said once it is cleaned out you have to run it twice a month empty to keep it clean. Ours has worked great since.

I just moved into a furnished apartment with a Hoover washer. Please could you explain how to operate it. I have used it twice, but both times it took at least 3 hours to complete the washing.


this is probably because most front load washer heat the water. check if you can adjust temperature or turn off,or check if the washer has a quick cycle for example quick 30 minute cycle.good luck keep me informed

Washer smelly musty and moldy. How can I get the smell to go away? Is there something we can take apart or clean to stop this smell. Not what you want to smell when you are trying to get fresh clean...


I have this problem with my Siemens machine, it is due to mainly running low temp washes and bateria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe). I run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) I buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time I did mine I ran the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out. My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months. Hope this helps. Roni. (ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

HE4t washer leaves clothes smelling worse than when they went in. They come out smelling like clothes that have been sitting around for months. I suspect the cycle sequence is just draining the soap, but...

Clean Cycle


I had the same problem. After unplugging and plugged it in several times, I got it to switch to a wash cycle. But now it beeps every 20 seconds.
