Could be your drum rollers needing lubrication.
They will make a thumping noise when the wheels are flat, a squealing/scrubbing noise when they need lubricant.
Also could be you drum rubbing on the felt seal at the mouth of the drum, the seal might be loose or worn

Do Mirolin water jet tub jets come out for cleaning ?


No they do not here is a simple way to clean the jets and the piping.

Regular Jet Cleaning

To clean the entire whirlpool system and tub exterior, follow this process every month or more frequently if needed. Don't let dirt and grime build up or you'll have more scrubbing to do to get the tub clean.
  1. Fill the tub with hot water, approximately an inch above the highest jet.
  2. Make sure the water temperature reaches at least 140? F (60? C).
  3. Add 1/2 cup of laundry detergent or the amount used to clean 1 load of laundry as recommended by the detergent manufacturer.
  4. Run the jets for 15 minutes.
  5. Drain the tub and refill with clean lukewarm water.
  6. Run the jets for another 15 minutes.
  7. Drain the bathtub.
  8. Dry the tub completely by wiping it down with a clean towel.

Tip

Clothes dryer


It is a good idea to occasionally wash the lint screen in the dryer if you use dryer sheets. The softener builds up and can cause a fire. Just take it out and use a good soap and brush to scrub it, then dry thoroughly before placing back in dryer.

How to reset Kenmore Elite 665-16572202 Dishwasher...clean light blinks 7 times pauses then repeats. My model does not have a Heated Dry button it has an Air Dry button.


Here's the key sequence(s) to use, depending on how your keys are labeled:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry.

This will start the diagnostic cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the dioagnostic cycle and clear the error. Please note, that this clears the error, but if you haven't found the cause (water-not-heating error), the condition will come right back the next time you run the dishwasher.

Dryer tub replacement...i need to replace the dryer tub. when dryer is on it makes a scrubbing noise


there may be something stuck in between the tub and the outer wall, have you tried to make sure this area is clear first. Make sure you unplug the dryer first before removing the back panel, then use a flashlight to check the tub and surrounding area. id do this first before i go to the expense of replace the tub section

The last 5 minutes of my washing cycle, my washer makes this loud noise! It sounds like a plane taking off! It's so loud, you can't hear tv. I'm not sure what the problem is.


Does it dry the clothes as fast as always? Or is it taking longer to dry them? That noise could be the blower wheel.

If the noise is more of a scrubbing sound that would be your glides worn thin and rubbing the mount

Something can also be in the blower causing the noise.

9_20_2011_2_48_43_pm.jpgTake the door off first and since the door is reversable remove those 2 screws on the other side. Then the front pops off revealing the clips that hold down the top. Then you can get the glide mount/shroud off there and remove the tub. You probably figured out you cannot access the innards from the rear of the dryer.

The cleaning solution nozzle on the Hoover Spin Scrub upholstery attachment just barely drips. I can't get the solution to spray. Any ideas?


make sure that the supply line is clear ,some times if solution is allowed to dry in the line the soap dries and blocks the route of solution
Try and use some viniger to break up the deposits

Own a Kenmore 665 dishwasher. The clean light is flashing (7 times) and the machine won't run. Have pulled the control panel and checked the door latch switches and they appear fine. No obvious burned...


It sensed a problem in the heater circuit. try this sequence to reset the code. If it comes back again you will have to determine a cause.

The reset sequence used was reported to be the following:
1) Crack the door open.
2) Within 3 seconds press the following sequence - Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry
3) Close and latch the door
4) Press the cancel button (the circle with the triangle in it)
