i would guess that it would have to be removed as it would prevent the barrel moving freely and would be causing it to vibrate the machine.

SOURCE: There is mold on the underside of the door ring.

It cannot be cleaned - it must be replaced.
The rubber absorbs the mold - and you cannot get rid of the smell.
This part is called a door bellow.
It will require disassembly of the machine to replace - and a professional service contractor is recommended.

My amana top load washer is foaming out of the discharge


sounds like you need to clean your washer , use white distilled vinegar about 2 cups on a heavy hot wash and if you are still foaming you can use vegetable oil to remove suds , repeat if needed

I have a LG washing machine Model # WM2688H*M it has a slight leak that I traced to a small black hose. The hose is in the back of the machine that goes from the bottom of the drum to the top somewhere...


It's not likely the hose is leaking, but rather water is leaking from somewhere else and is running down the outside of that hose. Remove the washer top by taking out the two phillips head screws from the bottom of the plastic clips on the back side of the washer's top. Now, stand in front of the machine and use the palms of you hands to sharply push the top cover back about 2 inches, then lift the cover off. Look for the water leak. The most likely suspect is a water inlet valve.

Foam ring came out of cd drive


Hi,

if it was sitting on top of the disk.
it must have been attached to the top-underside of the dvd drive.
this would usually act as padding or a buffer.
the only way, is to open up the drive, and re-fix or glue to the centre of the drive lid/top.
heres your only other option:-
If the front drawer is removable, or detachable. cut a piece of double-sided sticky tape. to the exact shape of the foam ( washer ) we,ll call it. stick to the washer. remove the other side of tape. place the washer on the centre of an old CD. manually eject the cd drawer ( Powered Off )
place the sticky sided washer on the centre of The CD. and place in the drawer. use a spatula or thin Knife, under the CD. to lever the cd, and sticky washer, back to the ceiling/roof of the drive. where it came from.
ensure it,s central. This is just a suggested Thought. And will require some thought before attempting it.

Bleach remains in bleach dispenser after washing and even after extra rinse cycle


I put the bleach in with the load right on top of the whites, so I dont have bleach left in the dispenser for the next load. Seems to work okay.

WM1832 CW washer with UE error


You should have access to the sides of the drum. Attatch foam to the either the drum or he outside casing.
The problem is caused by the drum moving too much (because of the defective dampers).
This is a cheaper fix than replacement dampers.

HL-DT-DVD-RW GSA H60L DVDE DRIVE


I just posted a reply to another message that is almost the same. Could be you. It is the foam pad ring from a new CD or DVD spindle that was stuck on a disc that you put in and missed it. It does not go back in the drive. It goes in the trash.
The ring is used hold the discs solidly on new retail spindle. The noise was the drive strugging with an unbalanced disc.

If you caught it right away and nothing hit the laser or lens you are ok. Try reading or burning another disc.

Cheers
