Mixing OK but not heating/baking

That's not a good sign. This will keep your bread from rising properly and baking, obviously.
If you are still under warranty, contact your manufacturer, otherwise, you can still use the machine to mix but you will need to use your oven to finish your bread.
If your bread is not rising in the machine:
  • Remove mxing chamber from machine
  • If the chamber is not removable, UN-PLUG THE BREAD MACHINE so the blades DO NOT TURN.
  • Be careful of the mixing blade in the chamber
  • Remove dough gently with slightly oiled hands into a lightly oiled bowl with room for about 2x the volume of the dough
  • Cover with plastic wrap to prevent the dough from drying
  • Place the bowl of dough in an unheated oven and leave the oven OFF
  • Place an empty lasagna pan in the cold oven on a shelf below the dough or on the floor of the oven if there are no exposed elements
  • Boil some water and pour it carefully into the lasagna pan
  • Close the oven door - You have just made a proofing box. The steam and heat from the boiled water is sufficient to make a great proofing cabinet out of your oven hot box
  • Allow the dough to rise to about twice the original volume
  • remove the dough from the oven and remove the pan of water
  • continue with the baking instructions below
If your bread is rising in the machine or you have finished the above instructions:
  • Remove dough gently with slightly oiled hands into bread pans. Breadmakers are different sizes so you may need to use one or two pans. Or make an artisan style loaf on a cookie sheet lined with parchment.
  • Be careful not to compress your risen dough as this will make the loaves dense
  • You may also choose to make buns by separating the dough into smaller balls and placing on parchment lined cookie sheets
  • You can allow the dough to rise again for a short time in the proofing box above but I would just leave them on the counter under clean towels to prevent drying for say another 20 minutes. Over-rising bread should also be prevented. The result will be 'deflated' looking bread.
  • Preheat your oven to 375F and bake the bread until it is golden and makes a hollow sound when thumped on the top or the bottom crust
Personally, I love that a machine will mix and knead my dough for me while i go do something else but I don't like the appearance of a machine baked bread. I like the artisan hand-made look. I recommend you keep the breadmaker until you find one you like that is drastically reduced in price and just use the artisan proofing & baking options above.
If you have a Pizza Stone, you can also try that for baking an artisan bread. Use the breadmaker as the workhorse, use your oven as an artist.
Good Luck and may the Yeast be Lively!

When I use the dough cycle on my bread maker, the dough doesn't seem to rise enough and is sticky and wet.

Looks like you have the same bread man machine I have. My metod is too unplug the machine for a half hour then put it through a second round of mixing. At the end of secound mixing I place the dough in a bowl greased and large enough for the dough to rise one last time oil top of dough cover with a towel on top of stove turned on set to the desired temperature. Keep dough away from any drafts. Once dough has doubled in size usually about one hour, take dough from bowl and divide it into buns or loafs of bread. Let dough rise again covered. Place in oven bake for about 15 minutes or longer until desired color, bread is done when you tap the top of it and it has a hollow sound, remove from oven let cool in pan for about 5 minutes, then take bread out of pan and place on a rack that allowes air to flow all around it. The reason for the rack is that baked bread that is allowd to cool on a fly surface will cause the bread to sweat on the bottom. Make sure yeast is good not expired or left out in the open

Is there anything I can do?

I don't know about your specific model, but in most bread makers there is a removable paddle that goes in the bottom of the bread pan after you put that in the machine. The paddle usually has a flattened side on the hole which slides on to the post sticking up from the bottom of the machine. If you look at the post straight down from above it should be D shaped. The usual procedure is to put the pan in the machine, install the paddle, and then add your ingredients. Assuming you are doing this and it is still not working, trying running it through a mix only cycle (like for pizza dough) with the machine empty to see if the paddle is engaging and spinning properly. If it is not, contact the manufacturer for assistance.

Hi, the seals can not be replaced. You will need a new bread pan. If under warranty you can get pan replaced. Sorry Hank

Bread pan does not release loaf after baking.

The Teflon coating on the inside of the pan has worn. You will need a new pan and probably also a paddle. In the meantime you could try spraying the inside of the pan with cooking oil prior to each use.

Replacement parts for all West Bend Bread Machines (and other products) are available online at Focus Electrics, which now handles the West Bend line of products.

If you do not know what model of machine you have, the model number can be found in the middle of the sticker on the back of your machine. The number will be somewhere in the range of 41026 to 41200 and it may be followed by one or letters.

Makes a bad loose sound when mixing dough

My Breadmakers Hearth was making the same sound, so after taking it apart I found that it was only the Bread Pans "under paddle" that the machine reaches up and connects to to drive the Paddle. I wears loose and wobbles and starts to slip making that banging sound. You can either replace the Bread Pan or like I did INVERT the under paddle (requires removing the C-clamp washer) to extend the life of the Pan and use of the Hearth. Hope this helps you.
