Re: MAchine Boils the water

If the temp sensor is operating ok but the element doesnt switch off there may be a problem with the power board/timer just follow the wires back to find problem.

The fabric softner is not draining during the cycle

Normally caused by undissolved soap residue. Switch off machine from mains, Remove detergent drawer from washing machine, there might be a small plastic clip that need to be levered by hand before the drawer can come out completely. Soak detergent drawer in a tub of water, rinse under tap and wash thoroughly until all soap residue has been washed away. Replace drawer.

Water is pouring out of my dispenser drawer

I have read other folks say that this has happened to them when a sock or wash cloth gets stuck behind the rubber seal of the door. There is a pipe that drains the water from your detergent tray and it may be clogged with a sock. Try feeling around behind the rubber seal in proximity to the detergent tray and see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in the pipe that drains the detergent tray. Also remove the tray and check the pipe from that end too.

Whirlpool front loader WF665/1 spilling water during cycle. Water is leaking from where the powder is deposited into the machine during the filling stage of the washing cycle. The machine will continue its...

that means that the water is leaking from the hows at the back of the detergent drawer.

This is not a difficult fix, however the washing machine must be taken apart to access the detergent hose and find the leak.

Always better to call a technician.

Leaking Washing Machine

no you should not need to spend any money on this . it sounds like the hose going from the back of the soap draw to the drum may be blocked just boil your kettle and pour it into the draw if this clears the blockage you wil see steam in the drum then put more hot water about another 2 kettles full down the draw and push the draw in and operate machine on the spin cycle. if the blockage is still there take off the lid you will see the hose from the back of the soap box and sqeeze it this should release the blockage

Rotten Egg Smell

Make sure the rubber door gasket is clean. Pull it back and clean under and around it. The gasket will collect dirt and begin to mildew causing various odors. Run the machine empty, boil a medium pot of water to almost boiling, then put it in the machine during the wash cycle. This will help clean the lines, during the rinse cycle place a 1/2 cup of vinegar in the unit. Make sure you are using HE detergent. 1-2 tablespoons will due. If your using liquid fabric softner, dilute it by half. These machine use less water than a typical top loader and can't dissolve regular detergent effectively. There by causing your lines to get clogged with gunk.

Smell coming from washing machine

IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.

Steam coming out of washer drawer

This problem happened to us too, fortunately it's quite easy to repair. The problem may lie with the water inlet solenoid (rear of machine, top left under the top cover). The cold water inlet to condense the steam may not be working correctly and the steam comes out of the detergent drawer. Replace this solenoid (bank of three on the water inlet) and this should solve your problem.
