How do i soak in my machine

If the machine has a soak button on the panel, when pushed, it will fill and wash and then it will stop for around 2 hours. Then it will continue the rest of the cycle. If no soak button is on your model then it won't do any of that.

Can soaking be done on Admiral washer?

Yes, just turn on to wash cycle then turn off to soak. I do it all the time. Soak about an hour, then resume wash cycle.

Manua beko 5kg aa class 1000 rpm

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 pushed the button after the washing cycle had start for the purpose of stopping the cycle so that the clothing can soak before washing. When I returned about half an hour later, I pushed the button to...

I am taking this as a machine with a timer knob. If so, you may have to advance the timer manually to get it to go. You may have stumbled onto a slightly dead spot on the timer. I think I would just leave the lid up next time. That will stop everything and give you the soak time you so desire.

Our dishwasher appears to be clogged - suggestions?

clogged - water not coming in? draining out?

no water draining out.. you may need to clean out the bottom area of the dishwasher... ick.. but it works. we often use more detergent than needed and it cakes and builds up - along with other "stuff"
if it's really caked up solid... pour hot water from a pitcher into the dishwasher and add 1-2 cups of white vinegar and let it sit and soak for a few hours...
After soaking - turn on the cycle to drain and rinse.
Good luck!

Kenmore machine won't do more than fill on SOAK setting;won't run

I'm unsure how the normal operation was restored. I attempted to correct it by setting the machine to SOAK+PREWASH overnight to assure that the SOAK timer had run out. Then My wife (who never uses SOAK or PREWASH options) made a clockwise trip around the TIMER control stopping at each of the "detents" (I did not witness this) one of the spin entry points worked to empty the washwater and the NORMAL wash cycle resumed normal function.
I'm not confident that my description above contains all the essential information needed to correct this problem and am disappointed that
I cannot find SUPPORTING LITERATURE that shows how to use these alternate cycles and combinations without another hang-up like these two that I have experienced. That which is supplied with the washer is pathetically inadequate and the Sears site has little else to offer. Document #8566913 was not delivered with the machine but I did find it somewhare on the INTERNET printed parts of it for additional help. *ALERT* #1: Just now I discovered that it does cover the Model series 110.2692* of which my machine is part ... and it ALONE warns of the 20 minute mandatory wait when two controls are set to obtain SOAK+PREWASH function.
*ALERT* #2: Last nite I discovered that the lid switch makes NO SOUND when the lid is lowered normally but can be made to click by pressing on the left rear of the lid. Feeling under the lid, I found no switchpad (?) on the operating arm as shown in diagrams found elsewhere.
FINAL QUESTIONS: 1) could failure to FULLY operate the lid switch allow partial function of this machine, e.g. to fill, agitate, rinse and spin normally but not to soak or prewash? 2) can anyone direct me to a place where I can obtain breakdown diagrams repair directions for this machine?

For this machine the length of time of between 30 minutes and 2 hours can be programmed in 30 minute increments for the soak process.

The machine is set ex works with a soak period of 2 hours.

To programme in a different soak period see "Programmable functions - Soak" in your user manual. See Page 59.
