Kenmore washing machine 2 year old is now flooding my floor every 20 loads happiend 4 times. Please help.

Is the water flooding coming from the top of the washing machine?
Check the drain pipe in the back to see that it's not loose. Also, look inside the drain pipe and make sure there is no algae. Algae might cause low flow through the drain pipe and it will overflow.

Hope this helps.

Hotpoint Washing machine keeps flooding kitchen

For the age of it, you can either replace it or get it fixed. I would personally get a quote first for repair.

F 03 showing on machine

Yes F-03 indicates a faulty thermistor (it's inside the heating element at the back). Before calling an engineer, just open the bottom rear panel and check that the connector has not come loose (OR IN MY CASE FALLEN OFF COMPLETELY). This can happen if there is a spin cycle that runs out of balance big time. (two thin wires on a square unit about 5mm in size fitted to the middle of the heating element).

The twin tub connected to the washing machine doesn't drain.

The laundry tub does not have adequate drain size to handle discharge from the washing machine. In addition, the kitchen and laundry area piping may not be correctly vented.

We have a new maytag kitchen stove model merh865raw. We have had it about 2 weeks. Now the surface indicator light will not light up when in use.

If the indicator light you are referring to is the 'surface hot' light then either the element has failed or a connection to the element has fallen off.
If the indicator light you are referring to is the 'element on' light then either the corresponding control switch has failed or a connection to the switch has fallen off.
It may be possible the lamp has failed..although never have seen one fail yet.
