The drain hose on my maytag centennial was leaking where it leaves the pump so I pulled it out and tightened the connection, replaced the back, and moved it back into place. On the next load, it sensed,...


You may have interrupted the drain cycle so you may need to empty all the water out to reset sensor.maybe move machine to w/h door and lower the drain hose outside until most of water is removed then start wash again from scratch. Or your out of balance switch activated if you tilted the machine, if so reach in the back at top of bowl and you should find a lever arm, jiggle gently back and forth then try the machine again.

The clothes come out smelly mouldy and I want to clean it out


Just a suggestion but if you let the water level to the lowest level and then use several gallons of bleech in the water, it should kill any mold that is growing in the unit. And you won't have to take things apart to see if it works.

I would run the bleach solution first, and then run another load with just rags or something and see if there was an improvement or not.

Then do another load (without clothes) with a lot of lemon juice to finish the cleaning process.

Clothes dont smell clean after washing them


The odor that you are experiencing may be from the growth of mold. Inside the washer, some small pools of water may be left standing and is harboring mold spores. Even though you may operate the washer regularly, the mold spores are not being washed away.I have a couple of tips that might help to eliminate odor issues in your washing machine. First, and the most effective in my research is to, leave the lid, or door to the unit open. By leaving the door open, it promotes air circulation and evaporation of standing water. The reduction in odor, will occur quickly and dramatically.

My second tip is to run the washer empty for a quick rinse cycle. Add an entire cup of bleach at the start of the cycle. The bleach is effective at destroying organisms, such as mold and bacteria. However, running it once will not be completely effective. I suggest pouring another cup of bleach into the wash tub, after the cycle has completed. This will leave bleach as the standing pool and should prevent the growth of mold or bacteria. However, if you do this, before doing a load of laundry you should run an empty rinse cycle again, to avoid damage to the clothes from the bleach left standing in the wash tub.

I have a Legacy SAV405DEWW machine wont run


I just had the same problem. The washer would stop about 2/3 through the spin cycle and not start again. Replaced the timer. That did NOT solve the problem.

Heavy water leak during when washing clothes


disconnect the hose on the bottom and see if the seal is good.If it is good, then remove the back panel, start the washer and watch and see what seal is broke and you can visually see the exact spot the water is leaking from.

Water Leak


Yes all you have to do is take off the front cover of the washer or the back cover, it it usually the front on top load washers. I believe your water pump may be cracked, but am not sure. What you need to do is remove the cover and start your washer and let it fill. Get a flashlight and pay close attention to where the water is leaking from. Then all you have to do is replace the part and your done. Any part dealing with water leaking will not be hard to change.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
