SOURCE: Clothes smell musty like wet towels after washed and dried.

check your detergent you are using, it should be a HE detegrent for High Efficency machines, too much regular detergent will suds up and nver be removed from clothing causing such a smell.a quick test to see if your using too much detergent, grab a sock form oyour drawer(clean one) place it in a glass of water and swish it up and dowen a few times, if soapy bubble wateris present then youre over soaping!

SOURCE: Laod with bath towels won't spin out

hi, you may find that the towels when wet are to heavy for the belt to grip the drum if it spins with normal clothes in you need to reduce the load when you wash your towels, hope this helps.

SOURCE: Calypso washer - LD Code - clothes still wet

harborstuff,
The code on your machine stands for 'Long Drain'. Ld flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets. I would bet that the bath mats left a bunch of stuff stuck in the recirculation pump hose, or pump itself, and the water cannot be drained fast enough. Check the intake and exit hoses of the recirc pump. It's easiest to get to the pump through the front panel of the machine(click here). Looks like this: click here. Hope this helps.
(Definitely get under there and check to make sure the pump hoses are not clogged. At $129 it's an expensive fix for a $10 bath mat that clogged up the hose with fuzz. 'know what I'm sayin'' :o) )

BTW, I have the maintenance manual & have experience at replacing the recirc. pump, control board, motor board, touchpad, & lid switch so far.

How do I clean the washer pump filter in my GE-WCVH6600HGG?


please go through this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7rJkWE0nN0
Instructions:
  • Examine if there's a problem with the filter. If the machine isn't draining, spinning or agitating, the washer pump filter may be clogged, and you should clean the pump filter. Other giveaways that the filter may need cleaning include the washer performing an incomplete cycle, the timer not advancing or the washer just not running

  • Open the pump access door with a coin. Remove the pump filter by turning it counterclockwise and pulling it out.
  • Clean the filter with your fingernails, removing all loose debris. Wash the filter under running water until it is clean.

  • Replace the filter. Insert it back into its housing, turn it clockwise and close the door.


  • i hope this helps you ,thank you

    Clothes have "dirty dishrag" smell after washing


    If you open the door of your Neptune, you'll notice a small trough between the door gaskets (inner and outer) There is a drain at the bottom that can get blocked by lint and other funky stuff. Next time you do a load of towels, take a small dirty towel and wipe that area of your machine out real well. Secondly load a slightly smaller load in your machine. Be sure to use a HE compatible soap...less foaming- it does make a difference.. Also the swishy slushy sound is normal and there is liquid in the drum for balancing...it's normal.. I think with a clear door drain, a bit smaller load .you'll find it won't be smelly.. I've got one of these and the only time it gets ordoriforous is when I've jammed it to max capacity. Let me know if all this helps you out. k

    The 2 piece premotor filter can be washed with mild detergent & warm water ensure you leave it for at least 24hrs to dry. DO NOT FIT IF WET OR DAMP,

    The post motor filter can not be washed it must be replaced with new at least every 12 months.

    Mildew smell on cloths


    The brand of your front loader is not that material on this issue. What is happening is that your old top load washer may have used as much as 45 gallons of water per cycle, while some front loaders use as little as 12. Because of the low water use, you must cut back on the additives you are using. Use only 1 tablespoon of HE detergent (even less if 2x or 3x detergent) per load. If you use fabric softener, use only 1 teaspoon per load. Odor on clothes after wash is indicating that the detergent and or softener has not been fully rinsed out. If you throw a load of washed towels into your machine and start a cycle without any soap, then stop the cycle, you should not see any suds. If you do, there is obviously soap left in the clothes. With bath towels, the towels are used to absorb clean water off a clean body. They do not need soap when you wash them, and never use fabric softener on towels.
    If your washer is a LG WM-1832 it has a assessable filter behind the access door on the lower left front of the machine. Clean that out first, and if it has a tub clean or sanitary cycle use that cycle (if not, use hottest longest cycle available) with 3 Affresh tablets or use whirlaway to clean out the washer outer tub (the not visible tub that holds the water). You might want to use another cycle like that with bleach to head off mold or mildew growth. Use of proper amount of detergent and fabric softener should really help the clothes odor issue from then on. Also check the tub seal at the bottom of the door area to clean out any lint from drain hole areas to help prevent water from remaining in the tub seal area.

    Front load ge washer does not finish cycle


    This model does not have a drain filter. There are filter screens inside the inlet valve where the hoses attach onto the machine. Take hoses off and look inside where the water goes into machine to see screens. Also, take the other end off hoses to make sure there are not screened hose washers in either end of the hose which may need to be cleaned or replaced.

    Wont spin


    I found the solution to clean the lint filter on the GE Adora. Go to http://www.instructables.com/id/GE-Adora-Lint-Filter-Cleanout/?download=pdf

    I just did this and my washer is now running instead of the flashing start/pause and door unlocking. It was fairly easy. Make sure you have towels and a flat pan to catch the water if you don't have the machine on a riser. There may be water inside so a wet vac may be helpful too. Once my washer finishes what was in it, I have these funky towels to clean. You'll be very surprised what you find in the filter! Best of luck!

    Clothes wet and soapy after cycle compleded ,mostly when towels are washed.


    Eiterh your machine is not spining properley or you simply need to clear out your drain filter.... or it could be the pump im thinking your filters is slightly blocked..

    fill the machine with water and lower the waste pipe to ground level and if the water trickles out slowly then its a blockage if not then its the pump...

    if its not the pump then its the carbon brushes on the motor....

    follow this procedure.. hope it helps any problems let us know
