SOURCE: strong mold smell inside washer
Powder is tuff on a front loader, liquid is the way to go. One solution is to use a ratio of 2 Tbls of soap to 1 Tbls of softener as this machine uses 70% less water and this makes the solution of soap much stronger causing a build in the back bottom of the tub. Every one I have rebuilt has had to be scrapped out because of excess soap, liquid or powder. This stuff turns black and is awful. I usually use washer magic only and knowing that one use will not remove even 3 years of build up but is a process of reversing the junk. So I will by one from Walmart for about 4 bucks and pour the contents into the machine will empty of clothes and water and let it sit over night to start breaking the stuff down, then in the morning I will run hot water in the closet sink to the machine so when I start the cycle the water is hot. So after soaking you want hot water with a heavy agitation plus a second rinse and that will remove half of the junk. I usually do this every month on my top loader because of hard water and my clothes do smell much better for it

SOURCE: circular grey rubber part ..
firstly u have to take the wire off it with a screwdriver unscrew it take it off then watch how the old on pulls off as there is a lip all around this rubber and it as to bed into the metal drum just see how the old one comes off once you have put the new one on put the wire back around it or it could be a metal strat wich tightens up with a screwdriver,rgds,paul

Well I'm an idiot. They did say there was a fast wash, but it specified that it was for extra rinses to help people with detergent allergy etc., but did not give a time for the cycle. They should have said it was the short wash for everyone. I tried it, and it was fine. Thanks anyway. If I ever have a real problem, I'll be back.

also have the same machine - if you wash with the eco rinse the clothes will ALWAYS have the soap residue on them and if you use the deep rinse then this machine will just sit there doing the very occasional agitate for up to 6 hours - can't win - have only just hung out a load and as usual there are many many dry spots on the sheets which is a daily occurence - really hate this machine and it's so called u-beaut functions -

It sounds like a door switch fault see if the end light and the start/pause light are flashing count the flashes if end flashes 4 times and the start/pause once or maybe more this could be error 41, door switch fault.A door switch would cost about $ 20 but there may still be a problem with the main Programmer.
