Smelly Washing Machine


There is a product called washer magik and is designed specifically for the problem of smell. The rubber bellows, or gasket, is notorious for causing that to happen.

How can I stop my washing machine from smelling and producing smal grey lumps of muck ,the seal and drum are cleaned regulaly also have tried washing machine cleaner


As with Mieles I would recommend that you run a few more hot wash cycles, the build up of gunk over the years would have accummulated - there are Gurus out there with remedies to make it smell nice, I have not tried the natural remedies yet.

The front drain pump filter is plugged with sand and other build up. and then i'm getting a grey gunk in the washing drum, i'm assuming it is b/c the drain pump is blocked and it is coming back in the...


the best way to drain the machane is to lean the machine back prop something under it and then using a bucket take the drain hose out an bring it as low as you can to the floor. This will make it easer for you to open the front at the bottom an clean the drain trap ,it is possible that there will be a little water left in there good luck

Front door is leaking..I think there is gunk under the grey seal..can that be taken off and cleaned or anything?


If the door glass and the door seal are making proper contact there should not be a problem..The smallest gap, split or tear will let water out. A leaking door seal usually needs to be replaced by a tech....Nomess

Dishwasher is leaving gritty material in bottom


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. You’ll need to check down the edge of the door seal, see if there is a lot of "gunk" there, this would cause grey marks on laundry. Try these steps--

You'll have to do a few maintenance washes to clear it out of the tub. Try these steps to remove the dirt, debris and odor from the washer—

  1. Set your machine to 60 degree wash.
  2. Now add 1/2 a cup of Washing Soda or 4 cups of baking soda Crystals and run the machine with no clothes in it.
  3. Your drain will sparkle, and it will remove all the debris, lint & mold growth from the drain pump and drain filter. Also the mold from the door seal will be cleared
  4. Add 1 desert spoonful of Washing Soda to every wash... I sprinkle it along the crease in the door seal.
  5. Clean the fabric softener cup with a rag first, (bleach will not break up fabric softener as it is introduced in the rinse cycle with the fabric softener.
  6. Also check the drain hose, it should not be clogged.

This will clean your machine and get rid of the gritty material in the bottom.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Aquarious wd63 washing getting grey stains at end of wash cycle


Hi.
Can you tell me? Does the washing machine sound noisier than normal in spin? Does it sound rough?

The grey marks could be drum bearing wear causing oil from the bearing to enter the washing machine. Sometimes you may see grey or black dots on your clothing.

If this is the case then repair cost is typically around £100 depending on where you live.

Hope this helps

There is gunk in the bottom of my dishwasher by the drain. Really sticky gunk. How do I get it out?


Depending on what that 'gunk' is, will determine your best course of action. If it is food byproducts from the wash process and you've not cleaned out the filter, you should remove as much of that gunk with a dishtowel and warm water, then use white vinegar to break down any other leftover material. Rinse with clean warm water. Check the filter and clean it after each wash process to make sure you aren't restricting drain water from being pumped out. Once you've removed th emajority of that material, you could run a dishless wash cycle on the sanitary setting to clean out anything that remained... Hope this helps...

Bosch aluminum dough hook has black coating


the problem is where the pin on the beater shaft locks into the hook may be wearing down or the hook itself.when you put the hook on see if you get alot of play in the hook (wiggle it and if it feels really loose its worn).its still safe to use but eventually (and this may be quite sometime) the pin may break off the beater shaft.you would then have to replace the pin and hook.
