Wow, you have the most problematic washer ever built. This washer was the actual demise of the Maytag Company. What happened was that when Maytag built these washers the drum was at an angle that it retained a large amount of water the drum. This caused problems with odor, bacteria and mold. There was a large class action lawsuit launched against Maytag to the point that they quit producing the washer and ultimately were facing bankruptcy, which they eventually filed for.

In regards to your problem, unfortunately there is no solution. The water residual in the water cannot be removed, the only thing you can do is make sure the door is left open, this may help in evaporating some of the water... another solution is to take a cup of chlorine bleach and poor it in the washer. "DO NOT ADD CLOTHES!" Turn on the washer to a normal wash cycle. When this has completed then make sure that the first wash you do after this a white load in case there is a residual of bleach... if there is mold on the door seal use a bathroom cleanser that will remove mold... DO NOT LEAVE CLOTHES IN WASHER FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME... THEY WILL SOUR AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REMOVE THAT SMELL ONCE IT GETS INTO CLOTHING!

I wish I had better news for you, but my guess is that you purchased this second hand and were not told of this inherent problem.

There is a liquid counter-weight in the front of machine and it makes it sound like there is always water in the tub. So do not fear it will always sound like that.

Water will not stop after filling drum


Hello Lynn Warner - If your washer will not stop filling up with water it could possibly have one of the following issues: a defective water inlet valve, air leak, holes or defective pressure switch. Does the water stop coming in? If no, then replace the water inlet valve. However if it does, then there are either holes or air leaks in the air bell or pressure switch hose, meaning tighten or replace the defective part or pressure switch will need replacing. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Hello, I have an Asko washer model 20005 leaking water from both heating units where they attach to the drum. Both have been replaced and "not overtightened" by repair person, but still leak...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Only one answer really- recall the 'repair person'. He or she should have carried out the repair properly and completely and ensured that there were no leaks from the units after replacement. That's what you pay for.
Maybe they used the original washers and not new ones, for instance? Are both heating units 'OEM', that is Original Equipment Manufacturer (Asko or whoever actually makes the washer) or less expensive 'copies'?
Put pressure on ;-0)

Good luck!

Maytag top loader slight leak from bottom left corner


Thank you for responding. Yes we fixed the problem. After taking off the front cover noticed the hose from the liquid bleach dispenser (which I never use) was not connected. Evidently when using the extra large load a little water would splash into the bleach dispenser, hence the small amount at bottom front left corner where dispenser is located. So simple! Glad I didn't pay for someone to attach the hose. Thanks again for your timely response. Lynn

I have a 36 inch enteraint series tv serial #eq24c288y . when i turn it on it stsys on for a few minutes and then goes off ican still hear the audio. sometiles it stsys on for hourd at other times it on...


Please update this with the model number. The serial number is not useful here. The model number should be on the same tag as the serial number.

Also:
When the picture goes off, are there any other symptoms at all? Blinking standby light? Anything? Is there a pattern to when it fails? Right at startup, only after a while? How long?

Responding to these questions will help me to provide you with some possibilities.

Thanks,
Dan
