You cannot. There is a pressure switch that measures the weight of the water before moving on to the next cycle.

My wash water smells bad. I leave the lid open between loads. When I do a wash it smells really bad.


After extended use, your washing machine can develop odors from the water, soap, residue, etc. The easiest and first thing to try is washing machine cleaner. You add this to the washer and then run a wash cycle. The product comes with instructions. Depending on the condition of your washer, you may have to run the cleaner through more than once.

You can usually purchase a washing machine cleaning product form stores that carry laundry detergent.

Here is a link to a product that you can try::

Door gasket is black looks moldy?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I see that the door gasket on your Frigidaire Affinity washer, model# ATF7000ES, is black and looks moldy. It because the mildew is not just on the gasket, but it is in the tub and in the pump and discharge hose as well. You need to reduce/eliminate the mildew in those parts. There are a couple of things you should do to reduce the causes of mildew.

1. Run the machine once a month, using liquid bleach, on the clean-tub cycle to clean out the machine. You might need to repeat this a few times to completely clean out your machine.

2. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the about and type of laundry detergent to use with your wash. Using too much detergent causes a buildup of detergent on the tub which encourages mildew growth.

3. After your final wash of the day, leave the door and laundry detergent open, wipe dry the gasket with a cloth.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-

We have a Samsung WF8802 RPZ washing machine with a 5ud fault code. What is the problem?

We have a Samsung WF8604NGW front loading dimond 6kg washing machine. We had the 5ud error message. It turned out the filter was clogged with fluff from a new set of bathroom mats my wife washed. To fix: Put the machine on to drain (if poss) - should be 1 minute on our machine however as the machine was so clogged it took around 15 to finish. Also use the draning tube located next to the filter (on our machine) to get rid of as much water as poss. Now remove filter and clear (warning some water will remain in the system) Before spinning any laundry run the rinse cycle (with an empty drum) a couple of times and clear the filter each time. If the filter is still clogged the laundry will spin heavy as the water will still be in the drum leaving you with no very dry laundry and a horrible noise during the spin. Regards Rik.

I need to use 10 gallons to have the washing machine run. If I want to reduce to 7 gallons What shall I do.(the machine is heavy duty one) Best regards, olive

The only way to use less water in a washing machine is to turn your settings down to medium or small load, this is false economy as it takes more loads of laundry to get the job done,,To use your washer to its full economy, do full loads of laundry.
The washer requires a set amount of water to run,any less and you are not going to be happy with the results.
If you have the financial resources, you can install a water reclamation system,this will save and filter and then re-use the water again and again.

Washing Machine MAF18-MC4VS This machine use a lot of water. Is there a way to save water. Please advice. Thanks. Calvin

One way I found to conserve water use, is either the washing machine has a water saver button feature or just use cold water as much as possible. That way, you are not using up the hot water and conserving the gas or electric that it takes to heat the water.

The storage bottoms are ok in quality, and do give you more space. They are built for just the use of the washer/dryer they are made for, so they will hold up. Best idea, is when you get your base units, tell the store you want a new pan liner installed as well. You may also want to tell the store that the installation personel who set up your new machine broke the last one and you want some sort of credit, free delivery, new pan liner, discount, etc. All stores (Home Depot, Lowes, Sears, Ace) that carry plumbing products, appliances, etc, will carry a heavy duty floor pan for your unit. Good luck and let me know if you need further information. Jim
