If you do not have very little load and wrong setting, there is a malfunction of the control board, call for the warranty service.

SOURCE: stinky laundry

Hi! I have Kenmore Elite 4t and had this same problem: Musty, Moldy smell in washer and on clothes. The Sears Technician suggested that I use a half a cup of Clorox Liquid Bleach and put it in the tub (not the dispenser). NO CLOTHES! Use the longest hottest setting and when it's done clean the inside (underneath rubber tire thingie) and the undernath part of the door with a papertowel. And to always leave the door open. I did what he said with the bleach and it worked. I didn't want to leave the door open because I have 2 cats & was afraid that they would want to go in it, but ended up repeating the bleach thing again because a few days later the horrible smell was back. I leave the door open all the time now and the cats never go in it. They've watched laundry spin around, so I guess they're smart enough to not want to go in it. I have not had this problem again since I always leave the door open and I did this over a month ago. I hope this helps!

SOURCE: CA error code on Calypso Washer

CA Cl Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limit If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and display either CA for average current limit trip or Cl for instantaneous current limit trip. Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current draw greater than 5.55 amps at the motor windings. Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps instantly at the motor windings. This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem.

Meaning you had stuffed it full one time and then it was hard on the motor, you will have to change the drive motor most likely...

this happened to me. there are other things it could be but i was told the most common is a broken or unhooked suspension spring. I'm a housewife and i fixed it myself in about 30 min.

SOURCE: Dryer twists and knots up clothes

Many times, many types of Dryer have a variety of paddles. There are so many different ones, without your model, it's hard to know which your has, however, I have known many people that have had these problems.

  1. knots clothing;
    Solution: I have heard and seen a couple tennis balls or even a soft pair of tennis shoes used in the dryer whilst drying clothes keep this from happening. (again, the paddles make all the difference) I myself have always had Maytag, but even they are not what they used to be, however, the shoe trick works when we dry our large blankets and comforters.
  2. Length of drying time;
    Solution: Gosh, there could be many issues, but the first, I would think you either have too small exhaust tube, or it is kinked, smashed or the wrong type. Even the smallest of kink or flattening on many exhaust tubes will greatly effect the output of the exhaust. The only other thing could be overall length of exhaust, and possible clogging in the tube. Have a idea for a fix there as well. (if this is the rpoblem.
If you would like further discussions or ideas, please post here, and be sure to add as much info on dryer as you can, including year purchased and model number.

If the drying time has anything to do with my immediate thoughts (had similar problem when I just moved and reinstalled my own Maytag) I have a great fix to keep it from happening.

Whirlpool has been a good name for some years, in fact, they own Maytag now, so I am sure we can solve your issue as long as it isn't a problem with your particular unit itself as they do make a lemon evey now and again.

SOURCE: whirlpool duet front loader washer/dryer

It is not the dryer causing the problem. We get the brown streaks on our white clothes before putting them in the dryer. I have ruined more white clothes over the past six months with this Duet washing machine!!! We also don't use bleach so I don't think it is the HE/Clorox combo that somebody mentioned earlier. Anybody know what exactly is causing this yet... before I throught the moldy stain causing Whirlpool duet out?

Door locked no power


If the machine didnt finish the cycle due to the pump being clogged the door will remained locked also if the lock mechanism went bad, the machine will stay locked. Remove the top of the machine by taking the screws from the top back out. Once removed look down the right hand side and you'll see the lock mechanism, usually with a plastic tab you pull to manually release the lock. On some machines it maybe be required and sometimes easier to remove the bottom kickplate and access the lock assembly from there

Smells musty and not washing clothes well


"In washing in the HE washers I think that if you have more than 3 loads a week you should maybe wash your washer at least once a week. I have started wiping the door off and leaving it open between washing and that helps a
lot with the smell.
This is why I think if you could wash the washer once a week it would probably do better. You never had this problem in the old washers." Try this in your washer.

The rinse cycle does not work, but everything else does


I don't know if the problem is solved but last night we ran the washer without any clothes in it and everything seemed to work fine. My wife was able to run a load of laundry and it seemed to work. I hope it was just too much clothes the first time it stopped or the washer was just acting up. Either way, I had nothing to do with the fix. Sorry I couldn't be any more help. Thank you for the link to assistance plan, it might come in handy in the future.

Thanks again,

Mildew/Stagnant water smell in washer


you know, this does happen.

run it on a full cycle, warm, with either of these in solution.

baking soda, at 1/10 concentration

non chlorine bleach, at 1/6 concentration

you most likely need to do this more than once, until your nose is happy.

Also, consider doing this at least once every 200 wash cycles.

essential oils have same effect, and do a nice anti microbial as well.

we did this in commercial laundries all the time, as part of standard health code compliance issues.
