Re: water comes into machine when on dryer clothes tak...
This machine drys by intermittently spraying a mist of cold water into the warm, moisture laden air traveling in the tube at the back right side of the machine. The cooling of that air stream causes moisture to condense and join the added water, which is periodically pumped out the drain. It takes a long time, and the clothes are not as "dry" as you may be use to with a conventional dryer. Never try to dry more than a half tub of laundry. These machines are great if you have small amounts of laundry to do, have limited space, and / or do not have 240 volts, (or a gas supply) and cannot do an outside vent. Don't plan on doing more than two loads per day. (one in AM, one in PM) Please don't bother rating, as anything but a Fix-Ya will lower my score. Thanks.

I'd check the inlet water valve screens first. You'll have to unplug the washer and turn off the faucet connections the supply hoses go to. Then loosen the hoses at the machine ends. when you feel the hoses relax unsrew them the rest of the way. There should be screens where they attached. If screens are covered with lime and other debris use a toothbrush with a spray bottle to flush clean. If screens look clean check the water valve itself. While you are at it before you hook the hoses back up check the pressure coming from the hoses hold them over a bucket or even the tub of the machine. Hoses can deteriorate on the inside and foul things up if they are old enough. and lime can build up in them as well.
Hi, this is normal for a washer dryer, water isn't actually going in, it is condensating and then being pumped away.
when you use the dryer program your are only meant to put half the washing load or less in at a time if there is too much wet washing in the machine it will take forever to dry as it cant get rid of the amount of condensation quick enough so some of it is reabsorbed into the clothes and so it goes on.
so the trick is only to put in a maximum of half the full washing load.
Hello, the problem here is you have a blockage between the soap dispenser and the tub, remove the top of the machine, Normally 3 screws at the back lip of the machine. Now you have access to the soap dispenser. There is a pipe that runs from the dispenser to the tub, remove this pipe and inside you will most likely find a sock or similar item of clothing. Put everything back together and you are all set. Good Luck! Mike
yes musty is actually cooked soap
from the dryer
take a clean just washed towel and put it in the washer alone with no soap
turn on the machine and watch what happens you will see the suds start to form
with this unit, if your using too much soap it will be spun into the cloths and then cooked in the dryer
do one towel load without soap then cut you soap usage way back
anything more than a tablespoon is way to much
The pipe from the soap dispenser to the tub is quite large, it seems as if the water isn't getting out of the dispenser quick enough. Pull the whole dispenser out of the machine. There is a release clip at the back of the cup with the tray fully open. Clean out all soap residue and scum. Sometimes there is also a spot or setting for liquid or powder detergent. Adjust accordingly. Reassemble and try it again.
Clean the dispenser water hose ,stuck by liquid dried soup./ the hose going to washer was open during washing time so all soap loaded was gone /
During water refill if nothing water pass to soap dispenser the soap will remain intact / but in washing time all soap will directly washout dispose to drain hose without to clean clothes.
POWDERED DETERGENTS GET CLOGGED ALOT IN THOSE DISPENSERS.
I ADVISE CUSTOMERS TO FILL THERE WASHER AND ADD SOAP WHEN IT STARTS TO AGITATE WHEN USING MORE THAN A 1/2 CUP OF POWDER ... THEN ADD YOUR CLOTHES ... THE WASHER HAS A SAFTEY SWITCH WILL STOP MOST WASHERS WHEN AGITATING OR IN SPIN CYCLE,SO YOU CAN LOAD CLOTHES ...
OTHER THAN THAT ... ALL YOU CAN DO IS KEEP THAT DISPENSER FLUSHED OUT WITH HOT WATER AFTER EVERY WASH. JUST POUR HOT WAYER TROUGH IT ...
IF THE WATER BACKS UP (EVEN WITH A SLOW POURING) THE DISPENSER IS PLUGGED AND NEEDS TO BE FLUSHED OUT WITH A HOSE.
GOOD LUCK AND STAY DRY !!!
