First thing you need to cheak is the breaker on your house panel.At times it may kick out on 1 side it should be a double 30 amp.you should be getting 220volt If not that then you may want to cheak if your door switch is working.If not door switch then you may have a burnt out thermal fuse located on the blower housing rear of the dryer on the bottom left side .There are 2 small blue wires going to it.Try bypassing the thrmal fuse by connecting wires and taping them together then run the dryer. Hope i helped:)

Why does my dryer make a load bang mid cycle?


You are overloading your machine, and in mid-cycle, the clothes are becoming out of balance. Try running the dryer with smaller loads. You will find that the clothes will come out of the dryer with fewer wrinkles, and that your items will be less likely to be damp after a drying cycle. If you continue to overload your machine, you risk breaking of belts or otherwise damaging your machine. You also may decrease the life of the clothes you dry since overloading is also hard on seams and fabrics.

Could be overloaded. Use less clothes to start. Load sensing will not let an overloaded washer to continue.

Washer will not spin at all no code . will drain and tumble back and forth,when it comes time to spin it turns off.


A washing machine is basically a big tub that repeatedly fills with water and then drains, spins to wring clothes dry, and has a device for stirring things up-- either an agitator in the middle of a top-load machine or a rolling drum in the case of a front-loader.
The four cycles that every washer performs are fill, wash, drain, and spin. Though these functions are pretty basic, a number of things can go wrong with them.
There are a number of problems that you can fix quite simply; some issues, however, are better left in the hands of an appliance repairperson.Problems that commonly occur with a clothes washer are discussed in depth below.If your washer doesn't run, be sure it's plugged in and that the receptacle works (the circuit hasn't overloaded). Before working on the washing machine, be sure to unplug it.
To prevent problems, follow good maintenance procedures. Use the right amount of detergent for your washer and your water hardness, make sure the machine is level, and don't overload it for the cycle chosen.

Washing Machine Does Not Fill
If the washer doesn't fill, the water inlet screens may be blocked. Clean or replace them. (Check your owner's manual for the location of the screens; they're often located at one end of the supply hoses, or you may have to remove a panel to access them.) Other reasons for not filling may be that either the timer or temperature selector is broken--both of these are repairs for an appliance repairperson.

Washer Does Not Spin
If your washer doesn't spin, check to see if the clothes have jammed or are unbalanced in the drum before calling a repairperson. Unbalanced clothes will also cause a w
asher to shudder or "walk." If straightening out the load doesn't stop the washer from shaking, look at the feet underneath and be sure they are properly adjusted to keep the washer sitting level on the floor (you just turn them to move them up or down).
Clothes Are Wet After Spin Cycle
If your clothes remain wet after your washer's spin cycle, perform the following diagnostics:
1) Lift the lid during the spin cycle. If the tub is not spinning, you may have a damaged motor coupler. Call a repairperson to replace this part.
2) If the tub is spinning, recheck the load to make sure it is balanced. If you are certain the load is balanced but your clothes are still wet, you may need to call a repairperson to replace a damaged motor pulley, tub bearing, belt, or clutch.

3) You can also follow the troubleshooting steps outlined in "Washing Machine Doesn't Drain." You may have a problem with your drain hose or pump.

Not spinning and making loud noise


Usually when the washer goes into spin cycle, it takes a little time to do so because it is trying to start a heavy load of wet clothes from standstill. As it speeds up, if the load is out of balance, it will start to wobble and then the off-balance switch is activated, shutting down the power to the motor and turning on an alarm momentarily. If this is close to what you are experiencing, try to realign the load so that the clothes are not bunched on one side of the drum - that is, distribute the load around the drum. You should be able to close the lid and press start to get it to try again. If this doesn't work, try removing most of the clothes, especially the heavy items, like jeans or sheets. You might be overloading the washer. Try it again.

My machine is showing EU on the display and the clothes are wet


What kind of machine is it? Is it EU or UE? In any case, it sounds like your load may just be unbalanced, in which case, you need to help the machine balance the clothes and try again. Do not load your machine with many heavy items or overload the machine. HE washers will get very cranky if you overload them or put in too many heavy items. They will try a few times to adjust the clothes for balance but will eventually give up and ask you for help. Take out the heaviest items, close the door, and push start. The machine should happily take off and spin out the remaining clothes. Good luck.

Clothes not clean after washing


Were the settings appropriate for the clothing?
The settings on the machine should be set properly for the load. Different fabric types require different wash/rinse temperatures, spin speeds, and wash times. Always follow the instructions printed on the fabric care label. The soil level needs to be set in accordance with the load type. Heavily soiled clothing will not come clean with a light soil level setting.
Was the proper detergent used?
If too much detergent is used, or non-HE detergent is used, the machine will not wash properly. Too many suds present during a wash decreases tumbling action and will not rinse out well. Furthermore, detergent residue built up in the machine over time will deposit extra detergent on clothes and deposit soil back into clothing.

Was the washer overloaded? If the machine is overloaded, the machine will not wash and rinse properly. When the washer is overloaded, the clothes have no room to tumble, and the cleaning performance of the washer is reduced. In addition, when the clothes are packed tightly inside the drum the detergent and water will not distribute evenly throughout the items.

Front loaders require regular maintenance to ensure optimum performance. If this maintenance is not followed, residue can accumulate in the drum resulting in detergent and soil being deposited back into clothing. This can also lead to odor and other issues. Perform the required maintenance regularly (once or twice a month).

Excessive lint on washed clothes


Your washer does not have a lint filter, so it's very important to sort lint givers from the lint takers. Washers today to not have lint filters because we rely on the dryer to remove lint that does not get pump out with the wash water.

Below are tips taken directly out of the user's manual:


  • Did you sort properly? Sort lint givers (towels, chenille) from lint takers (corduroy, synthetics). Also sort by color.
  • Did you overload the washer? The wash load must be balanced and not overloaded. Clothes should move freely. Lint or powdered detergent can be trapped in the load if overloaded. Wash smaller loads.
  • Did you select the correct water level? The water level should be correct for the load size. The load should be under water.
  • Did you use enough detergent? Follow manufacturer's directions. Use enough detergent to hold the lint in the water.
  • Did you line dry your clothing? If so, you can expect some lint on the clothing. The air movement and tumbling of a dryer removes lint from the load.
  • Was paper or tissue left in the pockets?
  • Is your water colder than 60°F (15.6°C)? Wash water colder than 60°F (15.6°C) may not completely dissolve the detergent.
  • Did you use the proper cycle time and agitation speed for the load? Reducing wash time (duration) and agitation speed are ways to reduce lint.

Hi all, we have a HUGE problem....our calypso washing machine has a problem with the agitator seal resulting in clothes being caught underneith the agatator. Is there a known design problem with this type...


The problem you are experiencing is caused by overloading your machine. When the clothes are just below the top of the agitator you have a full load. If you add more clothes than that you are overloading and your problem will continue.
