SOURCE: wash cycles far too long!

you may have the hot and cold hoses connected wrong way round. water flow from hot is often very slow hence the extended times. to check, put on rinse which should let cold water in. see if it is in fact hot water coming in and this confirms hoses wrong way round. just interchange them. smell could be due to using liquid detergent. change to powder type

SOURCE: shutting down on rinse cycle

Hi this could means that you may need to replace the washing machine bearings. Once the bearings are bad, the motor overheats and it will automatically shut down after the first rinse.

SOURCE: water barely trickles out for rinse cycle

Hello,

It sounds like you have some buildup in the cold water valve screen. Where the hose connects to the washer there should be a screen inside the valve. Remove the cold water hose from the washer and clear any debri on the valve screen.

If this doesn't fix the slow cold water flow then you will have to replace the whole water valve assembly. The water valve is the piece that the hoses connect too and supply water to the washer.

If you have anymore questions about this please ask. I will be more than happy to help you out.

Thanks

SOURCE: 2008 Samsung front end loader develops a 4E error

When error message 4E is displayed, you should clean the water hose mesh filter. To do this:

1. Turn off the water source to the washing machine.
2. Unscrew the hose from the back of the washing machine.
3. With a pair of pliers, gently pull out the mesh filter from the end of the hose and rinse it under water until clean. Also clean the inside and outside of the threaded connector.
4. Push the filter back into place.
5. Screw the hose back onto the washing machine.
6. Turn on the faucet and make sure the connections are watertight.


Also, please check the following:
• Make sure the source water faucet is turned on.
• Check the water pressure.

most washers on a full wash cycle take about 60 minutes. It will take longer if you use a soak cycle with extra minutes because if you have a soak cycle and you set it for 30 minutes the total wash time will be around 1 hour and 30 minutes.

I have a couple of problems. Firstly, the auto programme now shows a cycle time of 199mins but actually takes much longer than that to complete - more like 4 hours. On the quick (!) wash cycle the time is...


There is an issue with the machine not heating properly, it could be the control panel or the thermostat, The flap not staying shut is not connected to this.

My Kitchen Aid dishwasher runs for about 2 hours. Is this normal


It depends on your water pressure. Mine runs a cycle in about 25 minutes, with 92 psi water pressure. Before changing all the pipes in my house, I had about 30 psi and it took about 45 minutes. The longer it takes to fill, the longer it takes to do a wash.

Gateway 831 GM won't boot up no signal is showing in the begining


ram,

It sounds like the problem is either your power supply OR the motherboard. A power supply swap doesn't take long or cost much.
On the other hand, replacing a motherboard takes 30 minutes or longer and can cost upwards of $100!

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

Wash cycles are increasing in time required to complete


cold water valve in back could be plugged causing longer fill times.
