SOURCE: Roper Washer Wont Spin Out

Probably a bad lid switch. Open the control panel. Disconnect the lid switch wire connector on top of the cabinet under the control panel. Make a small insulated jumper wire and insert it into the wire that is still connected to the control panel. Set the timer to spin. If it spins replace the lid switch in the cabinet. If not, replace the timer.

SOURCE: wash cycle stops, F21 error message appears

"F21" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction in the drainage system. More than likely you probably have a clog in the drain pump. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1484065-f21_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

SOURCE: GE washing macine stops during the wash cycle

This is exactly what my machine was doing, as well. I fixed it by cleaning out the filter in front of the water pump.

Searching here, I found that you can remove the lower front panel (three screws along the bottom edge is all it takes) to get to the filter. With the panel removed, you'll see a round white plastic cover (about 3-4 inches diameter) that screws out. Get a bucket under the cover to catch the water that's in it (could be 2 quarts or more) and unscrew the cover.

The cover pulls out, revealing that is actually a screw-in plastic strainer. I found tons of coins, broken pens, paper clips, etc. in mine when I did this. A lot will be deep inside the black rubber hose that connects this filter housing to the washer drum. You can rake the stuff out with a bent wire clothes hanger. Shaking the black hose will help hurry the junk along and out of your machine. Screw the cover back on after the clean out and your machine should go back to normal.

Thinking about it, front loaders will have lots of small items flushed into the pump compared to top loaders. Coins you alway found in the bottom of the drum in a top loader, they all wind up in the filter of a front loader. And once it slow the drainage to a crawl the machine will shut down multiple times when it can't drain the water out completely, and it will never step up to it's max spin speed with all that water still in the drum.

What does 5ud mean 10 minutes from finishing 5 Ud displayed can't open door?


The SUD (not 5UD) code is displayed when excess foam is detected (possibly because excessive detergent is being used). If your machine does not cure itself, you may have to run an "Eco drum clean" cycle (if your machine has it) or a 90 degree cotton cycle with no detergent and no load.

I have a MHWE500VW11 and I hate it! It doesn't get the clothes clean. Give me my old top loader any day. I have to over wash everything on steam clean and it's killing my clothes. I do more dry...


One thing to check is the capacity of the machine. If you used to have a top loader you may be used to packing more clothes in, and the front loader may not be able to clean the same capacity.

Your manual should indicate the maximum weight of clothes for each kind of load. For example a 40 degree mixed load should usually weigh less than a 40 degree cottons load.

If you try washing less in each load you should find your clothes get cleaner.

I've bought a Miele W310 front loader, which is secondhand, so i don't have a manual. i would just like to know how to do a short wash. There are buttons: 'Short' 'Prewash'...


The short cycle is only an option for Cottons. Make sure that you have set the desired program temp for a cotton cycle (95-30 degrees C). You should be able to select the Short cycle by pressing the button below the Soak light several times. (Note: this cycle is for small amounts of clothing which are lightly soiled - use less detergent (1/2 the amount for a full load).)

If it doesn't work when on the Cotton cycle, then the switch inside the control panel may be faulty.

The manual is available from Miele, http://www.miele.co.uk/customer/OperatingInstructions.aspx . Enter the type of appliance and then scroll down the list. The direct link to the manual for the W310 is http://www.miele.co.uk/Resources/OperatingInstructions/W%20310.pdf .

I hope this helps.

RING OF BLACK ON NEPTUNE WASHER- ORIGINAL GASKET WAS REPLACED YEARS AGO BY MAYTAG WHEN PROBLEM WAS IST DIAGNOSED- NOW IT HAS RETURNED=CAN I USE A SAFE RINSE OF WHITE VINEGAR TO REMOVE IT? ANY OTHER EASY...


Many people use 40 degrees washes almost exclusively these days and the current trend is to use even lower temperatures to save energy ( Do you save as much as you think? Washing at 30 degrees ). Remember that a non-biological powder, doesn't work as well at lower temperatures so washing at low temperatures requires biological detergent for best results. It's also worth noting that bed bugs (or their eggs) are reported to be able to survive washing at lower temperatures and therefore it is recommended that bedding sheets should be washed at 60 degrees ( Related Whitegoodshelp Blog article: Bed bugs don't drown in the washing machine - but at least they get cleaned )

Also, (as mentioned in detail later) a regular 90 degrees maintenance wash is needed.

Washing machines now commonly suffer from a build up of a greasy deposit and bacteria that causes bad smells, rots hoses & door gaskets and blocks the pressure system causing overfilling or spin failure. An even more serious consequence of this problem is that the aluminium based drum spiders can be corroded by this grease and in serious cases can cause one or more arms to break. This is often fatal to the washing machine. Replace the door gasket with this part and wash the inside of the machine at least once a month with a GOOD HE washer cleaner like this one.

Clothes are grey not white at 95 degrees


never do a 95 degrees white wash after a dark wash!!

The discolouration comes from the fact that water is never completely drained from the machine, and as such if there is any dye from a previous 'dark wash' you will be unintentionally washing dye into your whites.

Use colour catching or whitening products to reduce/ eleminate this

My front load washer is making the laundry room smell with a really bad oder, why & what can I do to fix it?


Non HE detergent will cause your front load washer to have odors. If you do use HE detergent and still have the problem,use the "AFFRESH" product in the washer to neutralize the odor.

Asko front load washing machine


When u use front loaders you normally don't need a soak. And i don't think you need bleach. Use front loading powders for the machine. The automatic machine is supposed to work for you. The water empties out, so you can open the door.

Rate me pl if helped..............
