I can't be positive, but from the looks of it the seal isn't your problem. Reach a hand into the tub and see if it is wobbly or loose. If it is you'll need to disassemble the machine and replace the bearings and/or spider assembly. YouTube has plenty of step by step videos on how to do it, it's not as difficult as it sounds. Also try RepairClinic.com. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: asko 10505 - wash finished, door won't open

it is most likely your machine may have a draining problem. if it cant drain the water out the door wont open. if you open the small door at the front bottom of the machine you will find the little black drain hose. unplug the hose off the door and drain machine. when the machine is empty try powering on and opening the door. if still no luck you will see (in the same location) a red pull ring. undo the screw holding the ring in position and gently pull until the door releases. it would be worth undoing the button trap lid to access the pump and check for any blockages (most common coins **** pins etc) let me know how you get on.

Basic tip for out of control, out of balance washer


I thought my washing machine (a top load,stackable Maytag), was going to rock and roll right out of my laundry room and move in with the neighbors!

It was not quite that bad....yet...but it was rattling across the room. I tried shifting and shuffling my loads and downsizing them.

However, just like the dryer vent must be cleaned out, and a fabric softener is great for this job....our washing machines have this need, too.

After loads of trafficking diapers, childrens' play clothes, tennies,etc., my machine was giving me my money's worth....but the bumping and grinding had to stop!

I pulled out the vent, located in mid-center of the top-load washer, unscrewed pieces that were removable (don't force anything!), and ran them through hot water and bleach. Some of the 'gunk' had to be removed with paper towels. Afterward, I re-inserted the catch-all pieces, and the washer is now washing, on a balanced,and quieter cycle. Spin drying in my washer has never been so pleasantly silent.

I getting a funky smell in my laundry room and bathroom, but only when I am doing laundry. I am wondering if it has something to do with the hose. Its be like this for about six months.Thanks


It probally mildew growing inside the wash tub and associated water connnections like the pump housing, drain hoses. Mildew growth is common problem with front load washers. You can try to reduce the occurance of mildew by leaving the door and soap dispenser door open when not in use. Also wipe with door gasket with a rag to dry it.

To kill the mildew in the machine wash an empty load with hot water and vineagar about once a month. Repeat as neccessary. There other products to help reduce mildew such as affresh. Hope this helps you.

Samsung Front Load washer has odour


IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.

WATER IS COLLECTING AND STAYING IN THE GASGET AND HAS AN ODOR, HELP, Please


Betty, this is problematic of all front loading washers. I have some helpful suggestions, which have helped us with our own front loading washer.

First, whenever you're done doing a load of laundry, don't close the door all the way shut. Leave it open a couple of inches for a day to let it air dry out, which will prevent the nasty smelling odor you're getting.

I also take a small rag/washcloth to wipe out the door seal/gasket after we're done washing, that way, there's less water to contribute to foul odors, etc.

The other thing we discovered is to make our last load of wash the hot water wash, whenever we're doing whites, or the stain cycle. This helps get rid of any gunk that might hang around between wash days.

Now we don't always have a hot water wash everytime we do laundry, but by just wiping out the gasket and leaving the door open, we eliminated the odor issues completely.

Frankly, the gasket shouldn't have to be wiped out when you're done washing, but that's a design issue that we've overcome with a simple washcloth. So just do these simple steps and you'll save yourself some frustration.

We really like how clean our laundry gets with the front load washer and how little water is needed to do a load, so we've decided it's worth taking the time to wipe the gasket once we're done for the day, and to leave the door open to prevent any nasty odors.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Door locked


ome washing machines have a cord fixed behind the filter flap door that will open the door if pulled. Is the machine full of water, if so disconect the waste pipe and drain the water into a bucket, this may let the door open if switched back on.

Last resort use a thin flat bladed screwdriver, a blunt ended one of possible to get round the seal by the lock, you may be able to release the door
