Turn on the machine and leave the lid open. it will fill but will not go to the next cycle. it's a safety device. once your quilts have soaked just close the lid and the cycle will begin.

May i wash blankets in th washing machine

Wahing blankets in the washer depends on the washer and it depends on th blanket. If its a thin blank or small quilt than usually yes. If you have a comforter than I recommend taking to laundry mat. Top load washer is designed for between 18-28lbs of laundry. It may not feel that heavy but soak it with water than feel how heavy. If its a direct drive washer and you put too much weight in it the couple will break. If its belt driven you can break the belt or wear out the moter. If its a front load washer they are designed to hold more but The motor can only handle so much weight or it burns out. The belt could also break if its too much weight. The simplest way of determining it is if the blanket does not soak up alot of water ( thin blanket ) than its ok If blanket soaks up alot of water (comforter) take to laundry mat. I hope this helped. Anymore questions please comment me back.

Sometimes it spins sometimes it doesn't had a problem this morning with a king size quilt, it came out soaking so I tried to spin it again & its still wet, I put in another load & then it...

Duvets/quilts are very heavy when wet, causing a very unbalanced load. If the machine could spin such a large uncentred (UK spelling!) mass it would shake itself to pieces, so all modern domestic washing machines have unbalanced load detection systems. In use these systems will vary the drum rotation to try and get the load evenly distributed before going into full spin, but if they can't then no spin occurs.

Very few domestic washing machines can take a duvet or quilt (certainly no front loader which I'm aware of, and only a few top loaders), and those which can fit them in are usually overloaded. There's nothing wrong with your machine, you just need to use a commercial launderette machine to wash and spin your duvet/quilts in future.

After my daughter washed a quilt. The Washer leaks water out of the bottom. Is a seal loose? What is my best access to open the washer to see what the problem is. Thanks

The quilt had nothing to do with this problem. It is the water pump that is worn and has started to leak from old age. It needs to be replaced.

Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...

The problem is a faulty Door Latch Assembly. The same thing happened to my Frigidaire front load washer. The part is easy to install, costs about 60 dollars and can be picked up at most appliance repair stores . To access the switch just remove the wire around the front drum gasket, peel back the rubber gasket beside the switch assembly then remove the two screws holding it in place. remove the three wire connector blocks and swap in the new switch. My washer was giving me error code 41 witch is a faulty control board. But the problem was in fact only the switch...

Frame quilting with janome 1600 db

am I right that the feed dogs do not drop on this machine?

Yes, this is correct....but you have to change the needle plate to a thicker one, so the feed dogs will be below the needle plate.
