Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

Water appears in drum after wash cycle is finished.

Noticing water in drum - intermittent - seems to ''pool up'' overnight. The water is slightly murky and very smelly! Ran the cleaning cycle to help remove the awful smell, and presto, no more water pooling for about 6 weeks. Then, there it is again - about 1-2 cups in the bottom of the drum. Ran the clean cycle again, and it's gone for the time being. What is going on? .

If you remove the front cover there is a drain plug that holds change and lint paperclips etc, it fills up and gets plugged and wont go throught the drainig pump. if you find this and clean it out you will be good for another 6 months...its important to check pockets before washing

This is normal. These machines always hold a slight amount of water.

Dolphin pool cleaner stops working after a 15 to 30 minutes. Even though the cycle time is set to 8 hours. How can I fix ?


It sounds like you might have a problem with the impeller or drive shaft, which are both common problems with these pool cleaners. Clean around your impeller and your wheels, axles, etc. If these do not cure your problem, it is probably an issue with your electrical system.

Smelly Water Draining


Try getting the new whirlpool affresh washer tablets. They clean the mold and are supposed to make everything in the washer smell better and keep it clean. They are only around 10 bucks and is worth a shot to clean your smelly drain.

Clothes smell musty


The big door seal is probably the problem. Put on gloves and using a solution of Laundry detregent and hot water and rags, carefully wipe clean all the folds of the seal. It will be icky. Next run a cycle with some detergent and oxyclean or bleach if you have it.

Especially during warm weather, damp clothing left in a front loader mildew slightly very quickly- you can't really see much but you can smell it! So get the clothes in to the dryer immediately. You'll want to relaunder the smelly clothing after you have cleaned the washer.

Good luck to you and Thank You using FiX YA!

Whirlpool duet front loader washer


Mold and bacteria in your door seal is a symptom of problems deeper inside the unit. All washers - not just Whirlpool, have this problem. The area of worst buildup is always on the inside of the plastic outer tub just above the normal waterline where suds and soiled water splash up and don't get rinsed out. To clean this problem area add 1 or 2 caps of smelly washer cleaner to a full load of laundry. The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the "splash area". Intermittently pause to soak more extreme cases.
