    Does the agitator move the clothes properly with a full load?

  • tinkers95815

    not really. It move back and forth but, the clothes do not move as they should. I have to reach in and grab the clothes from the bottom and pull them to the top. They will get pulled down correctly but then...? They get stuck and/or wrapped around the agitator. It spins and drains well. It doesn't fill up to the level it used to so I usually add water myself.

SOURCE: I HAVE FRONT LOAD LG WASHER - CLOTHES ARE SMELLING

We had a similair problem with our LG washer. For some reason, and don't ask me why, the smell only occurs when using liquid Tide detergent. We switched to powdered HE Tide, and the smell went away. I read on another thread that mixing white vinigar with the detergent helps keep the inside stuff bacteria free. I use about a half cup of white vinigar once every month and have not had any mold problems.

Put a whole house water filter on the cold side of the inlet water. I bet you have well water with lime in it??? Wash your clothes only in cold water. Rub a couple of empty loads with clorox, lime away, oxy clean to remove any build up in your washer

Water did not drain


see the causes and fix it. God bless you
If your washer won't drain, check these: It spins, but doesn't pump It doesn't spin or pump It pumps, but the water returns It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Washer will not spin at all no code . will drain and tumble back and forth,when it comes time to spin it turns off.


A washing machine is basically a big tub that repeatedly fills with water and then drains, spins to wring clothes dry, and has a device for stirring things up-- either an agitator in the middle of a top-load machine or a rolling drum in the case of a front-loader.
The four cycles that every washer performs are fill, wash, drain, and spin. Though these functions are pretty basic, a number of things can go wrong with them.
There are a number of problems that you can fix quite simply; some issues, however, are better left in the hands of an appliance repairperson.Problems that commonly occur with a clothes washer are discussed in depth below.If your washer doesn't run, be sure it's plugged in and that the receptacle works (the circuit hasn't overloaded). Before working on the washing machine, be sure to unplug it.
To prevent problems, follow good maintenance procedures. Use the right amount of detergent for your washer and your water hardness, make sure the machine is level, and don't overload it for the cycle chosen.

Washing Machine Does Not Fill
If the washer doesn't fill, the water inlet screens may be blocked. Clean or replace them. (Check your owner's manual for the location of the screens; they're often located at one end of the supply hoses, or you may have to remove a panel to access them.) Other reasons for not filling may be that either the timer or temperature selector is broken--both of these are repairs for an appliance repairperson.

Washer Does Not Spin
If your washer doesn't spin, check to see if the clothes have jammed or are unbalanced in the drum before calling a repairperson. Unbalanced clothes will also cause a w
asher to shudder or "walk." If straightening out the load doesn't stop the washer from shaking, look at the feet underneath and be sure they are properly adjusted to keep the washer sitting level on the floor (you just turn them to move them up or down).
Clothes Are Wet After Spin Cycle
If your clothes remain wet after your washer's spin cycle, perform the following diagnostics:
1) Lift the lid during the spin cycle. If the tub is not spinning, you may have a damaged motor coupler. Call a repairperson to replace this part.
2) If the tub is spinning, recheck the load to make sure it is balanced. If you are certain the load is balanced but your clothes are still wet, you may need to call a repairperson to replace a damaged motor pulley, tub bearing, belt, or clutch.

3) You can also follow the troubleshooting steps outlined in "Washing Machine Doesn't Drain." You may have a problem with your drain hose or pump.

Hotpoint Aquarius WD440 Washer/Dryer. After a cycle clothes still smell as if there is stagnant water underlying somewhere yet machine has been looked at - nothing wrong. Still working in excellent order...


You can buy a liquid product (I got ours in Lidl) that flushes out and cleans the machine. If one application doesn't work try it again. It's just like cleaning out the dishwasher. Worked for us and it was really smelling!

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 have a Frigidaire front load washer and used dishwashing soap accidentally. now it wont spin in the final spin leaving the clothes soaking wet


Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post I understand you have a problem with a Frigidaire washer that has had the wrong "soap" placed in it.


If you can remove the lower panel on the front you should inspect and insure the shock absorbers are still intact and not broken before proceeding. This is what you'll be looking for...(yours may in fact be plastic cylinder type shocks, that's the older version)


macmarkus_605.jpg


If they are not broken then it should be safe to proceed. Here's what I'd suggest (see below).


Let me know how that works for you and we can move forward from there if this doesn't resolve the problem.

When oversudsing has occurred, have the washer cleaned out by running it without clothing using a hot water wash (with cold water rinse) & ½ gallon of white vinegar. If problem persist after, run a cold water rinse using 1 gallon of white vinegar.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)
