SOURCE: Kenmore Oasis HE Washer

problem started when washer started itself up twice in the middle of the night....after that the washer seems to have problems figuring out what it wants to do...when running a wash it will start, run for 2 minutes then start scanning numbers...it does not land on a code...it will spin, stop, start...sears has replaced the mother board 3 times....and we will be phoning them again as it has not fixed the problem..one other time it did not spin properly and clothes were wet...we have a dedicated surge protector on it...we have had our electrical checked and no problems there...sears confirmed that as well..the techs have given up on it and don't know what to do with anymore...it is still under warranty and now costing sears more to service it then replace it....time for them to do the right thing and "take it back"...very disappointed in this washer...wish me luck when i call them again...they must be sick of hearing from me....lol

SOURCE: Kenmore front load washer: no cold water problem

that's odd.

if you choose cold/cold then check your hose orientation. you could have put the hot water to the cold solenoid.
or the wires have been interchange, the hot water wire was plug to the cold solenoid and the cold water wire was plug to the hot water solenoid.
or hot water is still flowing to your cold water line.

if the cold water solenoid is the problem, then there should be no water at all going to the tub.

try to experiment, try to switch to hot/hot and see what would come out...


tnx 4 using fixya,

Stagnent water smell while filling


I found that running about a quart of white vinegar through a cycle with hot water and no clothes or detergent takes care of the musty smell. Vinegar removes detergent build-up.

How do I find the source of the sour water smell and remove if from my washer?


that smell is usually caused by a build up of soap and residue from normal laundry,, a simple way to fix this is to run a empty full load add 2 cups of vinegar to the load, it will help in the breakup of buildup in the machine,, after that ,, run a load on Hot to drain out any left over vinegar

FTF530FS Front Load washing machine. Clothes smell.


all front load washers have the problem. Mold and a build up or dirt and soap and fabric softner cause s old musty smell. The low water use makes the machine dirty and build up inside. Run a few Hot water washes with out clothing, Run it empty ,(run your hot water neer your washer to get the cold water out of the house pipes) hot water and pour bleach in side, 2 or more cups. Keep doing it. When your not using washer leave the door open so air can get inside. Hot wash,es with bleach will keep it clean, also dont use fab softner.

Try this. Run a load of a few towels with no soap, no bleach, no fabric softeners. Set wash water temp to hot. After hot water enters and begins to wash, stop the washer and open the door. Pour in one cup of vinegar (white is fine.) Run the entire wash cycle.

-Buy a supply of High Efficiency Washing detergent (marked "HE") and do not over fill the detergent cup (use a little less than the directions say, never more.)

-Buy a name brand supply of fabric softener with a scent you enjoy and can recognize.

Run the next weeks loads of wash (no need to use Hot water any more) and report back here with how things are smelling. OK?

Washer smells musty


there could be buildup in the outer tub causing some water to stay trapped and causing the smell, try running some loads uning Ahfresh or you can try pouring lots of bleach in there and letting it sit a while, then run it throu a cycle.

Stinky washer


I have the same problem. The solution is to use bleach with your whites. It's better to use a normal amount of bleach frequently rather than a lot of bleach only once in a while.

Smell on towels


It's good that you are using HE detergent but you're probably using way too much. To test this run the washer empty (no soap) and if you see bubbles inside that's left over soap that's still in the unit. If so, keep running it empty until the bubbles are gone then start using only about 1 tablespoon of soap per load. The washer uses about 1/10 of the water so you need to use 1/10 of the soap. Use the same amount of softner. The excess soap and softner build up in the unit and cause the smell.

Repair man told me this is common with front load washers. I was told to put Sunlight dish washing detergent (for dishwashers not hands) in the machine (about 1/2 cup) and do a hot wash with the machine empty.
