Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

1 Answer

We have had our washing machine for over 10 years and it has never given us much trouble. But lately there has been an alarming amount of black flecks of dirt floating around in the water. Also it smells like sewage. We called a repair guy to come and have a look at it and when he took the machine all apart he noticed a huge build up of black clay like substance. Now we had this problem before about 7 months ago and he cleaned it for us and haven't had trouble since then. When he looked at it today he said that it was far too large of a buildup in the span of less then a year and that something else was contributing to the build up. What do you think that could be? Could it be that it's our water? Our soaps? What is your opinion?

My washing machine will not turn on.


I suggest you rapid reading of alarms.
  • Press the START/PAUSE button and the nearest option button simultaneously for at least 2 seconds: the LEDs initially switch off, and then display the flashing sequence indicating the last alarm.
  • To display the previous alarms, press the button to the left of the START/PAUSE button in sequence.
  • To return to the last alarm, press the START/PAUSE button.
  • The alarm continues to be displayed for the amount of time required, and then the display returns to its normal operation.
  • While the alarm is being displayed, the appliance continues to perform the cycle or, if in the programme selection phase, it maintains the previously selected options in memory.

Haier HLP21E Top Load washer keeps beeping & blinking after water intake. It will rinse out the water when 'rinse' pressed. However it does not 'spin' but instead all three orange lights start blinking &...


No spin with alarm means the unit is out of balance.
The troubleshooting manual reads:
"The safety switch acts. The
spinning cannot work (The
WASH, RINSE and SPIN
indicator flash and alarm goes
off every 10 seconds). If
trouble cannot be solved after
alarming, it will alarm again
every few minutes."

To solve this the load must be balanced:

Make sure to level the machine on a solid floor. Also you may have to redistribute the clothing in the tub for even weight distribution.

WASHER MAGIC is the revolutionary product specifically formulated to safely and effectively clean the family washing machine. Top loading machine use whole bottle. Front loading use 1/2 bottle. You may rub Washer Magic on with a rag to eliminate odors.

Why Use WASHER MAGIC? Every time you wash your clothes, hard water and detergents causes lime scale and rust to build up inside the tub, pump and hoses. This build-up reduces the ability of your washing machine to perform. Mineral build-up acts as an abrasive increasing the wear on your clothes. The result: your clothes are not as clean as they could be and wear out sooner.

If you are unhappy with the way your clothes comes out of the wash, then WASHER MAGIC may be the solution you have been looking for. Only WASHER MAGIC can restore the family washing machine to the way it performed when it was new. Use once a month for optimal washer performance and to keep control of trouble causing build-up.
