SOURCE: cleaning washing machine filter

There is no filter on this machine. The gray gooey substance is sludge (dirt) build up inside the tub. This can be caused from using too much detergent or a detergent that is not HE (high efficiency).
You can try running an empty cycle using the hottest water available with products such as "washer fresh", "affresh" or a cup of bleach to remove the build up.
Remember to use a HE detergent and you only need about 2 tablespoons per regular load.
Good luck!

SOURCE: old model rca washer machine...will not agitate/wash the clothes,does spin.

If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: My washing machine does not clean properly.

Let's start with the detergent and the water temperature. If they are the same as what you use at home,
then I have to assume the machine may be overloaded. Back off on the load by about 1/3 and see what happens. In the worst case scenario, you could let the jeans soak in the detergent/water mix over-night

SOURCE: White streaks on dark clothes after washing.

Reduce the load !!

You are getting white streaks because the clothes are so compressed the machine is not agitating them correctly.

My daughter gets the same problem and she still insists on packing the clothes in.

My wife washes the same clothes for her with the right load and they come out fine

Spinner is not working E3 error appear


You may have to check your motor brushes; if worn out your spin will not function properly. Go to youtube with your model, make,etc; it is a very easy fix. Hope your filter is clean and your wall drain is not blocked.

Bottom rotor is not working


Hello.

Washing machines, like any other mechanical device, occasionally needs servicing. A common problem with an older washing machine is that the spinner, or agitator, stops rotating during wash cycles. Fortunately, most washing machine problems are easy to troubleshoot. Any do-it-yourselfer can fix it; here's how.

TOOLS NEEDE TO SOLVE PROBLEM ARE BELOW.

Bucket and rags,Screwdriver,New drive belt (if necessary),New drive motor (if necessary)

1 Unplug the washing machine, and turn off the water supply to the machine. If necessary, remove the water hoses from the back of the washing machine because they may be in the way of the access panel.

2 Check that the agitator is seated correctly by opening the lid of the washing machine. If it's loose, pop off the top of the agitator--if there is one--and tighten the bolt that holds the agitator in place. Or, in some models, simply pull straight up and then reseat the agitator.

3 Remove the access panel located in the back of the washing machine by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. This allows access to the drive motor.

4 Press on the drive belt that works the agitator. If the belt moves more than 3/4 inch, tighten the belt to fix the spinner problem. If the belt is worn or cracked, replace the belt.

5 Replace the drive motor, if tightening or replacing the drive belt doesn't fix the agitator. Purchase a new drive motor at a wholesale retailer. Disconnect wiring, remove screws holding motor in place and insert new motor. Screw into place, and connect wiring.

6 Check for any black substance leaking under the washing machine. This might indicate a clutch problem, if the washing machine spinner is not working. Contact a professional repairman to replace the clutch.

Thanks.
