Frigidaire front loading washing machine works fine in regular wash but won't spin out enough in perma press cycle.


I appreciate your post, Kathy Saalfeld!

From my understanding on permanent press your Frigidaire washer will not spin out enough water. This could be a possible issue with your control panel or sensor within the inside of your washer. You may want to review your drain tube to assure that it is not restricted or kinked. This could be a possible problem with your drain pump or timer. You may need to consult with a professional technician for a proper diagnosis and repair to be performed on your washer. Good luck. -Matt

Could you please tell me what the 'flash cotton' setting on my Indesit washing machine is? Nowhere in the manual or anywhere else is there any clue as to what this setting means.


It appears to be a fast cotton wash (60 minutes).

Certainly not a program for washing "Flash Cotton" which is an expolsive mix of cotton, nitric acid and other reagents!

My washing machine is stuck on agitate. It filled and agitated then stopped. I can set it to spin only and it will spin and empty the tub, but for a regular wash cycle it starts on agitate and stops...


You may have broken teeth on the gears in the timer assembly. Do you have a habit of "whipping" the timer around? In other words, turning the timer fast.

I have had aqarius a hotpoint aqarius 1000 wm62p


It has a wide variety of wash programmes for white cotton, colourfast cotton, polyester, non-colourfast cotton, wool blends and wool itself. These standard programmes take from an hour and a quarter to three-quarters of an hour to complete.
There is also a quick wash programme lasting just under half an hour for lightly soiled items and a pre wash soak for heavily soiled items. The machine has four buttons providing extra facilities that can be set independently of the main wash programmes to give you a more comprehensive range of settings.
There is a rinse hold button, which I find extremely useful. When set this holds the clothes in the final rinse water until you are ready to unload the machine. You then release the button, let the machine go through the final spin and then you can unload the machine. It means that you don’t leave damp washing in the machine for the time between the cycle finishing and you unloading the machine, which would make for very creased clothes. There is also a button to depress if you want to use the super rinse facility. This merely increases the volume of water in each rinse so that the clothes are rinsed more fully. I have never used this particular facility, as the ordinary rinses are fine for my needs.
The next button allows for a slow spin. I find that this one is really useful for the items that I need to iron as it means that they don’t come out of the washing machine as creased as they normally would on a faster spin. The only problem with this is of course that the clothes are not as dry as they would otherwise have been. The final button is used to set the economy wash feature. This means that the washing machine’s own heating system is not used and the wash is done with the water at the temperature entering the machine from your hot and cold water tanks. This of course means a cooler wash so it’s only suitable for lightly soiled items.
The door remains locked during the wash programmes so that it cannot be opened accidentally and it can be locked when not in use too if you have small children who might get into mischief! The other big selling point for this particular model is that it gauges the size of the load and uses the correct amount of water needed eliminating the need for the half-wash programme. This also means that it is both water and energy efficient
