I have alot of particles in the bottom of my washer at the end of the cycle.. if i run another cycle with no clothes they stay in the bottom of the washer..appears to be dirt, leaves..etc


Hello, Suzanne -

So someone, whose clothes are washed in your machine, picks up "crud" on his or her clothes. (My dad used to collect "crud" in his pants cuffs and pants pockets, so my mom would make sure she emptied the pockets and cuffs over a wastebasket before putting his clothes in the washing machine.)

First, make sure pockets, cuffs, and whatever else clothing parts might collect "crud" are emptied over a wastebasket prior to placing in the washing machine.

"Crud" like pet hair or disintegrated facial tissue left in a pocket may still be left over in a washing machine tub after clothes are removed. I use a wet sponge to wipe out the washing machine tub when ever I see left over "crud."

Newer washing machines have lint traps, which are not as easy to access as those on clothes dryers. The washing machine lint trap may need cleaning out.

Tip

SENSOR DRY IN SAMSUNG DRYERS


As a tech, I'm constantly fielding questions about loads of clothes not drying properly in the larger Samsung dryers--and this tip can be used for a lot of dryers with the sensor-dry feature. Sensor drying uses a pair of metal strips located on the filter holder or on the back wall in the dryer. When wet clothes rub against the strips, this sends a signal to the main board which tells the dryer to keep going. Unless large loads are used, the consumer should use "timed dry". This is because smaller loads won't hit the sensor strips often enough and cause the computer to count down too rapidly. Also, consumers should try to make sure like items are placed with like items( shirts with shirts, pants with pants, towels with towels, etc) Thick clothing(jeans, heavy sweatshirts, etc.) usually will have damp spots like pockets due to the moisture not being able to contact the sensor strips--the technology is not 100%. Also, if there are problems with the timer starting to count down too rapidly all the time, and dryer sheets are used, the sensor strips may be coated with a waxy layer. Use some super fine emory cloth to polish the coating off of the sensor strips. You very well might find that the problem is solved and not have to initiate a service call!

Help..a piece of gum was found in my kenmore elite front loader. there is gum stuck all inside the drum. how should i get this clean?


I normally do not endorse specific products, but I have used "Goo-Gone" for just about any type of gummy or sticky substance and it works well. They sell it in a gel form that can be sprayed on allowed to sit for a few minutes. I would recommend you first use a straigth razor and, going with the curved surface of the drum, carefully peel off any large globs. Use care not to apply enough pressure to rmeove the pain off the drum surface. Then, use the gum remover for the remaining residue. Using terry cloth material like an old wash cloth or towel works well at removing gunk without damaging the surface. Once you have the gum cleaned off, use a good general purpose spray cleaner (like "409") to clean any of the gum remover residue off the drum surface.

If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dryer shot off


Try cleaning off the moisture sensor bars. (two 1/4 inch wide, about 5 inch long metal strips about an inch apart inside the dryer, near the lint trap.) These strips can get coated, often times from waxy residue from fabric softener sheets, and then no moisture is detected, so the dryer thinks clothes are dry, and after a short (5 minutes) cool down, it shuts off. If you use the manual / time dry, dryer should work fine even if the sensors are coated.

Brown marks on my light coloured clothes


I just noticed My Frigidaire doing the same thing. Using a lightly soapy damp cloth, I cleaned the interior, paying particular attention to the small gap between the drum and the housing. I also took apart the lint pre-filter and screen and cleaned them. There was a filmy build up of the same colored substance. I suspect that dryer sheets are leaving a waxy residue that over time is sufficient enough to rub off on lighter colored, primarily synthetic, fabrics.

Gum melted onto dryer drum


Wet a dryer fabric softener sheet with water; place sheet over gum, wait a few minutes and then gum should be easy to wipe 'up'.

Brown streaks on clothes from dryer
