Question about Daewoo DW500M Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My washing machine does not clean properly.

I have a frigidaire stacking washer and dryer. The dryer is fine, but the washing machine does not clean well. The agitator works fine, but still the clothes do not come out clean. I washed a pair of jeans in mine and they did not come clean, and then cleaned them in my friend's Inglis machine and they came out clean. Any idea what the problem could be

Let's start with the detergent and the water temperature. If they are the same as what you use at home,
then I have to assume the machine may be overloaded. Back off on the load by about 1/3 and see what happens. In the worst case scenario, you could let the jeans soak in the detergent/water mix over-night

    Sorry I haven't been back to you in a while. I have been a bit too busy dealing with contractors to visit Fixya for close to a month. A separate washer typically has a capacity around 3.8 to 5.0 cubic feet (top load versus front load). The washer in a typical stacked set has a capacity around 2.4 to 3.2 cubic feet. Assuming the water to your washer and your friend's washer comes from the same source, running smaller loads and/or presoaking heavily soiled clothing are about the only way you are going to get better cleaning while using the same temperature and detergent. If your friend is using public water and you are using unfiltered and untreated (softened) well water, your clothes will most likely come out a bit dingy compared to your friend due to harmless minerals in the well water (iron, manganese, copper, etc...).

check to see that the agitator is spinning out the water, if it is not, you may have torn the wire out of the door switch, which will prevent total water discharge
