Press and hold "end of cycle" button for 3 seconds, on the right side of panel. Wait for 2 minutes before trying the door. This is the child lock feature, do it again & it locks.

If helped, pl rate me good!!

How to operate the washing machines front load washer brandt bf850


Hi,
  • Open the front door and load the clothing into the washing machine. Check the owner's manual for the maximum load size. Overloading the washing machine may interfere with its ability to spin the clothes and rinse them clean.

  • Fill the detergent receptacle on the front of the washing machine, making sure not to fill it past the indicated line. Always use a liquid detergent that is designed for front-loading washing machines.
  • Add bleach or fabric softener, if needed. Most front-loading washing machines have a section for fabric softener inside the detergent receptacle. Check the instructions on the bleach to find out when it should be added to the washing machine.
  • Close the front door of the washing machine and make sure it locks into place. The machine usually will not turn on unless the door is securely locked.
  • Check the owner's manual to find out how to select the different options and wash cycles. As a general rule, use warm or cold water for most types of colored clothing. Hot water should only be used when washing white cotton items.
  • Start the front-loading washing machine and let it run through the entire wash, rinse and spin cycles before opening the door to unload the clothing.

  • Please rate this solution. Regards.

    I own the Whirlpool duet set with the front loading washer. The clothes comeout with a bad smell. I was told that the washer probably needed to be cleaned. How is this done, and what makes it happen?


    Using the wrong kind of detergent in your fancy front loader is a great way to grunge up your washer and impart some oder onto your clothes. And it accelerates the mechanical deterioration of your washer.
    2. Using too much fabric softener and/or detergent.
    Liquid fabric softener does not break down very well in cold water and the residue collects on the outer tub and basket along with the lint left from the wash. We professionals refer to this accumulated as grunge. Once formed, this grunge collects ever more additional soap, dirt, grease, human waste, mites, , parasites... and then some really bad stuff.
    As it turns out, this grunge makes a perfect substrate for microbial life forms. Over some time- not very much time in warmer climates- those little bacterial colonies build up lots of microbial sewage, just like we do until one day you open the door to the washer
    Using too much fabric softener will waterproof your clothes. How clean do you think your clothes will get if they repel water inside the washing machine?
    3. Doing all your wash loads in cold water only.
    Detergents don't dissolve as well in cold water. As a result, cold water washes leave behind more grunge. So... do an occasional wash in hot water. OK, maybe more than occasional. Like, I hope you at least wash your skivvies in hot water.
    4. Leaving clothes in the washer at the end of the cycle.
    Front loaders don't have as much access to open air as top load machines. Consequently, leaving clothes in the washer for more than eight hours will increase mold and mildew build up.
    1. Add one additional gallon of hot water to the unit before sending it into a hot wash. This will raise the water level high enough to remove the Grunge Hiding Behind the Basket
    2. Same as 1 but with bleach added to all dispensers. Clean the fabric softener cup with a rag first (bleach will not break up fabric softener since it is introduced in the rinse cycle with the fabric softener).
    3. Same as1 and 2 but with a cap full of pine cleaner added to the wash water (NOT the dispenser). Add some old rags (they don`t need to be dirty) and select the extra rinse cycle. The wash action will help remove the accumulated grunge from the components
    Once again, make sure you're only using high efficiency (HE) detergents in your front loader.

    You areusing too much soap. Run a rinse cycle and use less soap next time. As for the mildew leave your door cracked open after you are done using the machine.

    I paused the washer to add more clothes when I tried to restart the washer it clicked and then turned completely off


    if you add clothes too late in the wash, this happens. The washers know when its to late to wash something effectivly, and they will shut off. sorry, but you will have to rewash what you were washing...

    The clothes on my duet smell. is there something


    The washing machine has a compartment where drive motors are located. That compartment sometimes become home to rats, insects and etc. Clean that compartment and have it free from unexpected visitors. You can open the compartment thru the back portion of the washing machine, however; if your not experince enough, an electrical or mechanical problems will add to your problem. Have it serviced by a pro.
