SOURCE: Miele leak when switched on for wash, from filter unit front LHS bottom of machince

You can replace the Bellows as it is called but to fix it before you replace it clean it with Bleach to kill the mold and then dry it ALSO after any load you do leave the door open a bit this allows the mach to air dry out and prevents the build up of mold ..Good Luck plz rate this post for me

SOURCE: How can I unscrew the drain outlet at the bottom

Keep trying to unscrew it, as it should come right out for cleaning. A little water will come out too so put a small tray under the machine first.

Look at my other solutions, as for DOOR light flashing.

SOURCE: Brown dirt-like looking "gunk" coming out of the washer

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

Smell coming from AWN32 speed queen top loading washer

All washing machine "smell" when the lid is left closed for more than one day. If it is really bad it might be something inside the body of the machine or something caught under the agitator.
Inside the body work. Unscrew the three screws at the bottom of the front panel. Lift the bottom of the panel forward and up. Remove. Make sure the machine is unplugged and switched off before reaching into the body work. Look for something "smelly"
Agitator - switch off and unplug - depending on the model unscrew the top cap on the agitator. Some models do not have an screw cap although it might look so. Reach with both hands into the machine and grab the agitator at it bottom flanges hands opposite each other. Pull up hard - it does not let go easily- make sure it doesn't have a top screw cap. To replace just push back until it clicks or replace and tighten the top cap.

I have a hotpoint Aqrius wml 560. Everytime I put the washing machine on there an dreadful smell come's out from machine. I have tried putting machine on hotest temp empty but still I get this...

Locate the area from where the smell is emiting. You need to see the rear bottom to see the pump and the motor. Check after the smell is noticed - remove the power and touch the pump and motor - If so there is fault on one of them. If not check the capacitor to the motor, the program controller unit. Your observation is most important to confirm.

My hotpoint aqualtis smells awful. the smell is coming from the drum. we have taken the pump off and although this smelled it was nowere near as bad as what is coming from the drum.

run a large load with no clothes and no soap. use hot water and a full gallon or more of bleach. do an extra rinse to make sure all the bleach is rinsed out before putting clothes in it again.
