Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

There's a foamy soap left in my washing machine after the laundry is done. We've established that I'm NOT putting in too much soap; it just isn't rinsing properly. The repair guy says it is draining fine, then yesterday the machine pumped out more than five gallons of water into my apartment. Changed the timer and there don't seem to be more floods. Still soap in the washer, though.

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside where you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

How can I get a laundry cap out of the drain where you put the laundry soap, bleach and softener?


Can you see the cap?
Is the soap tube a separate piece that you can remove?
What's the year, make and model?
A local repairman would be able to solve the problem, as a last resort.

I have a Semi Automatic Whirlpool Sparkle washing machine my question is can i put water in the dryer just to remove soap from the clothes


Whether your dryer is electric or gas, DON'T PUT WATER IN THE DRYER!!! If you need to get more soap out of the laundry, run it through another cycle without soap.

I have a Frigidaire ATF7000ES1 model. It's about 5 years old. Today when I did the laundry, it stopped by itself. I turned the knob, nothing happened. After awhile, the power was back on. I set it...


could be many things... possibly the starter capacitor is gone (google what this is if interested), but lets start simple... If the machine isn't getting water, this will make it stop. Check the taps are on, hoses hocked up, test hot and cold cycles, even pull out soap draw while ur at it and give it a good clean as soap always builds up anyway. But i am getting a feeling that ur machine is getting water otherwise you would have mentioned it. The other thing is to check that water is getting out ok. Is the pump blocked? Give it a clean anyway because everything you put into your machine goes through the pump, so it works hard. The good thing about these exercises is that you'll start to get to know ur machine. A good friend of mine once told me some advice when trouble shooting... "get to know how it works, and then you might find why its broken". And then check the switch on the door. The trip switch on the door prevents someone putting the arm in machine while its spinning at 1400 rpm. Hopefully by now you've opened up the machine to marvel at its inner workings... Check the obvious that wires seem connected and hose clumps are in their correct position. Lets turn our attention to the motor. Is there a belt? Is the belt on? Can u turn the drum around manually? (Do this with power off which you should have well and truly done by now). If these are all yes, lets check the motor on spin cycle - which we probably could have done before pulling case off. If it isn't spinning at all, check to see if there is a fuse in the cpu board (this is the brains of machine). If fuse blown, this could be due to motor gone or starter capacitor gone. let us know how you get on

My GE Profile washing machine leaves soap suds in the bottom and on the clothes. I use Cheer liquid detergent. My husband says it is because of placing too heavy of items, such as towels, in the machine....


Use ONLY the recommended amount of detergent per the label on the detergent.
Pour detergent in the tub first then start the water,then add the laundry.
Do not overload the machine.
Use a bathroom scale to weigh 12-15 pounds of laundry and no more.
Big tubs invite more laundry.
Don't be fooled by a big tub.

Where do i put the laundry detergent?


Top left is a drawer. Be sure you put it in the soap dispensing department. Put HE stuff in there. Do not put too much. The correct amount is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash load

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

Any more than this and you will get errors and headaches.

Everytime we do laundry, we have a horrible smell in the washing machine. We have tried bleach and hot water but no success. Any other ideas?


Be sure your using HE Laundry det. only use the recommended amount on the bottle, I use the liquid, the less the better, I use the least amount.....To much soap left in clothes can cause mildew and stinky smell, also I recommend using a fabric softner, it helps to remove the soap....and smells good....also use a good washer cleaner, I use Affresh, they come in tablets, go to www.affresh.com and put in you zipcode to find where you can purchase it in you area......make sure after a load is finished that it doesn't sit in the tub with the lid down for long, removing the laundry promptly will also help with stinky laundry........also, leave the lid or door open for a couple of days to air it out after cleaning.....use the Affresh at least once a month.......hope this helps you

What holes


Open the drawer at the top left of the front of your machine: you will see 3 compartments: right is prewash, middle is for softener, left is for wash. WATCH OUT- these machines do not need as much washing powder as the american models-putting too much soap could damage your machine and lenghthen the cycles.... I use half of what I used in my previous american washer.... do not be surprised either by the spinning cycle: before going full blown into spinning the machine has sensors that perit autobalancing of the laundry. You must not load laundry above 3/4 of the diameter of the drum.
