I have an ASKO W 6551 front load washing machine; when I tried to put some eucalyptus oil in the small tray for softener accidentally the plastic (bottle)cap the size of a 20 cents Au coin slipped right down inside the pipe; can this damage the machine? or can I leave there ignoring the noise? thank you, Stt

    I managed to remove the cap as instructed by rkavi thank you;

    now while in spinning mode the drum is awfully unbalanced and makes a horrible noise;
    is it because we laid the machine horizontally on one side while trying to extract the cap?
    the machine is shaking really badly and the noise is frightening;
    I could not reply to rkavi, I really wanted to but somehow I could not type a new comment to him;

    we managed to implement the first solution given by rkavi; it really worked;
    then we encountered a second problem and got a solution for that one too by muzzi_123;
    thank you to both of you, great service;
    thank you again;

Well you can leave it there because your machine has automatic sensors e.g if the hot water is not working it will stop and show you a error code, its the same if the plastic bottle cap manages to block any pipes of the machine it will stop to prevent further damage and show you a error code.

Hey,Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum.inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub look for cap stuck .
Clear the water pump from obstructions like cap when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water.
this wil be a problem if u dont care about it,so perform the above techniques,otherwise ur washdrum will be spoiled.

Where does the detergent go and where do i put the fabric softerner? I am using a Kenmore Elite front load washer. thanks, Adriana


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

A quick and easy way to find out which tray is which is to pull the detergent drawer out just so that you can see into it. Start a pre-wash and see where the water runs in, then advance to the main wash and observe. Finally start a rinse cycle and where the water goes in is where the conditioner/softener goes.
In a few cases I have come across the pre-wash tray shares with the conditioner/softener part but the pre-wash powder goes in the front and the softener in the back.

Cheers,
John C
