Dryer model # lte5243dq3 take to long to dry clothes


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Tip

Washing Machine Maintenance


Once a year you should take the time to give the washer machine that serves you so well a little bit of tender loving care. This bit of time may prevent you from having washing machine problems in the future. If you can prevent just one washing machine repair it will be well worth your time. While you are doing the preventive maintenance, you also can do a bit of washing machine cleaning as well.

Washing machines are not fun to fix, here are some things that will help you to prevent that emergency repair.

-Check the hoses on the back of the washing machine for cracks, rust or corrosion on the connecting fittings, blisters on the hoses, and or leaks.
-Cracks in the hoses are signs of a breakdown of the rubber and aging
-Blisters are a sign that the water is getting through the inner lining of the
hose
-If your have corrosion then you either had or have a leak
-If left go the hose may be very difficult to remove in the future

-Check that your washer is setting solidly on the floor and is level.
-Out of level and flopping washers can help to cause out of balance
banging, noise, etc.. leading to premature failure of the washer

-Check to make sure that there is no water that drips from the inside of the washer when it is off.
-Dripping water is a sign that the solenoid valve or water inlet valve is
starting to wear and not closing properly. Replace the valve before is fails
completely.

This also is a good time to run your washer through a cleaning cycle. There are different things to use to clean the washer. One of the good old “green” standby’s is plain old vinegar. Dump a cupful in the washer and run through a short cycle. Other cleaning solutions could include things like Clorox, or other household detergents. There also are commercial cleaning products for cleaning washer machines also.

By doing these things once a year you will help to make sure that your washer will give you the best service possible.

8 year old Malber non-vented washer/dryer


It depends on the machine and if it's in good shape a new set is going to cost you $1200.00 a pump about $100.00 plus labor Its really up to you if you can afford a new unit or not. You may want to ask the repairman if he thinks the machine is good enough to keep, If there is any hoses or belts since he has it a part it will save some labor and would be some preventive maintenance may lube rollers or anything else he might see. But the guy working on it would be able to see if there s any metal wear or wear on rollers and could give you a better answer than we could.see may see something that may be make it not worth it. hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

I have a sour smell coming from my washer that does not seem to go away, what is the problem? I have seen many other postings on the internet about their having this problem, seems to be the washer.


After the odor has been removed washing habits need to change so it doesn't return. Washing machine odor is caused by

1. Overuse of detergent. Use no more than 1 tbsp of whatever detergent is used (unless washing soiled clothing).
2. Using fabric softener because it's dispensed in the rinse cycle. Dryer sheets or dryer balls are better options. Dryer sheets can also be overused and coat the inside of the dryer with siliconized chemicals that cause clothing to retain odors. Sensors inside the dryer can also be affected. The sheets can be torn in half or thirds
3. Using mainly cold water for washing is fine but makes preventive maintenance important. A hot wash or soak as your last cycle on wash day will help to dissolve residue.
4. Many front loading washer have a filter/trap that will catch debris. A partially clogged filter/trap can cause draining problems and odor. Save money on appliance repair by cleaning it yourself. Consult your owner's manual for instruction.
