I moved into a house 3 years ago and inherited a Kenmore washing machine that is 30 years old and still working. The problem is the dial letter is worn off, so I am never quite sure what type of settings...

I too had a machine just like you. What I did was get a sharpie marker pen and slowly turned the dial and when I landed on a setting I would make that location. I would do that for all of the locations and test the water if it is cold, warm, hot and label appropriately. If you go to a store and look at the dials you will normally see three settings. On the left will be normal everyday setting, to the right is the more specialize settings and bottom is the permanent press settings.

Personally speaking I would be happy knowing where the hot and cold settings are and I can do all of my laundry. Good Luck and have fun

Whirlpool washer age

Your washer was manufactured in March of 1993. The manufacture date is determined by the Serial Number. The second letter "C" represents the YEAR of manufacture. The first two numbers "14" represent the WEEK it was manufactured. The 14th week puts the manufacturing in late March. I hope this helps you.

Zanussi Washer Drier

We had same problem with same model machine - basically you have to ignore the letters behind the see through plastic window and write new ones around the dial with a permanent marker that you know are correct and correspond to what you want. It's a lot of trial and error - try and go for the simple dryer function first and mark write the corresponding letter against the dial straight away, then work out the distance between each letter on the proper dial and and you should replicate these distances and letters with your pen.

How do I turn off the beepers on my Bosch washer

To turn the beep off (or volume down) on the Exxcel 7 (BOSCH WAE24468GB you do the following:
1. Turn setting dial to off. 2. Turn dial one step clockwise (wait for panel to light) 3. Keep finger on 'RPM' button and turn dial another step clockwise and release finger. 4. The default setting of '2' should appear on the display, this represents the Button Signal Volume 5. Pressing 'Ready in' button cycles through the volume settings from 0 (off) to 4 (very loud!). 6. Turn dial another step clockwise to set the 'Information Signal Volume', which is also set to '2' by default. This is the one that annoys everyone at the end of the cycle!
All the manuals are on the Bosch website, if you know the model code.

Zanussi washing machine.

i am a recently retired engineer of 20 years, and i have found that generally the numbers and letters are the same throughout, so the number 2 on one machine is the same as the number 2 on another make, so this rule applies for letters also, just remember what you used on your old machine and you cant go far wrong hope this helps

Neff 5644 - how does it work!??

"e" is economy - ignore this there is a selection of spin speed - most people use the fastest half load is what it says - most people wash a full load so ignore the temp dial just selects wash temp. for normal washes set to 40deg can't remember the symbols on program dial but think they are fairly self-explanatory this machine is just a washer remember to check the filter regularly
