    Double check in and around the door boot. A lot of times small articles of clothing, lint and other forms of debris get caught behind the rubber and begin to stink. Continue with the clorox and hot water washes as a preventive measure. Depending on frequency of use, you may want to run the washer on its HOTTEST cycle with only bleach more OFTEN. Now...if don't find anything behind the rubber door boot,and the smell persists, you may want to check your drain pump as well. Make sure you drain all the water from washer by using a shop vac to pull a vacuum on the drain hose in the back of the washer. This will pull all the remaining water from the tub, through the drain lines and through the pump. Sometimes this will also pull any debris from the lines. Remove the lower kick panel under the door and check the drain pump for obstructions. The pump on this model have a screw off cap that you can check. As a last resort, if everything else checks out, is to replace the door boot. The rubber will sometimes become so mildewed that it will not go away and the smell will linger. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have any further questions. <>
    PS Do not use a wire brush on the rubber door boot. Use a green scrub pad or nylon bristled brush instead. You may case damage to the rubber.

All front loaders use very little water as a opposed to a top loader that uses up to 45 gallons per load a front loader uses about 10,plus a front loader cleans clothes very well with that minimal water usage.
The major question is do the clothes seem to come out clean when you have used that washer?

Grey spots on our white clothes after wash


do you use affresh to clean your front loader? deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. try this porduct out it works great on all front loaders use hot water with the affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle this also helps with any stagnant water smells also have you cleaned out your pump lately. * note remeber to put the pellet on the inside of the machine not in the soap dispenser

I have a front loader washing machine. The rubber inside is going mouldy. I have tried to clean same without success - any suggestions!


Unfortunately, once the door seal goes mouldy it is impossible to get clean. Only option is to replace seal. Once seal is replaced, you need to wipe it dry after each wash and leave door ajar to prevent reoccurence of mould.

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
anything to me. It's been about 55 years since I had experience with front load washers. However I can refer you to Applianceaid.com where they have very good and complete trouble shooting and repair information on front loaders. I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

Please help! My samsung 7kg J845 front loader keeps flashing UE on the error code (spin cycle) and I can't open the door. Sarah


Hi, I have the same washing machine and it flashes UE on the error code during spin cycle when I have one thing in there, or if the clothes are uneven. I usually have to wait until the lock light goes out, re-arrange the clothes and continue spin cycle. If it is just one item in there, I usually have to manually wring it out as it will keep saying error if I keep trying to spin.

Zanuassi jet system frony loader has a bad smell


hi this is joyce
They sell a product called affresh it cost about $10.00 you put in the machine and run a cycle and this should take care of the smell. if this does not do it then run pure bleach in despenser and run cycle no clothes in washer. this will kill the mold. also never close the door completly on the machine because this holds moisture inside the machine, so leave a crack in door so the machine will dry out some. this should take care of the problem.
thanks

Stops mid cycle


that's the washing machine version of going on a walkabout, no? just kidding.

E9 suggests that the line is getting clogged. the filter pulls out(see user manual for that option) and you might want to consider running it with baking soda solution in warm water or hot, once or twice to get rid of that odor.

Smelly clothes


A solution from the internet:
Make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put into the powder drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda.
It should clean the machine and move out the bad smell.

Another:
I have a front loading machine also and am not willing to have to constantly clean out the machine; the soap and fabric softeners you use are building up between the inner and outer drums (and on the drum itself sometimes). Because the machines door is so tightly sealed (to prevent water leakage) the smell from this buildup is awful. I finally found the solution.
MAGGIE'S SOAP NUTS -- they are all natural (grow on trees) and will remove the grime from your drum and also clean your clothes (you won't even need fabric softener anymore). Stop using commercial detergents and fabric softeners and start using Maggie's Soap Nuts.
They are not very cheap but they work great --
I have found that making a liquid out of the soap nuts and storing it in a bottle works better than putting them in the sack cloth they come with (because front loaders do not agitate constantly like regular machines, the cloth bag sits on the clothes and sometimes leaves a stain -- the liquid will not leave a stain.
YOU WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM AND HAVE SOFTER CLOTHES TO BOOT (without fabric softener so you save some money there). They are also better for septic tanks, the environment and your health!
I believe Whole Foods sells them and they are also on the internet at www.Maggiessoapnuts.com

Note: Also go to www.newstarget.com -- they are going to buy these in bulk to cut the cost in half but don't have them yet. You should be able to buy them there soon.
Note: Forgot to tell you to run some of this thru your machine with hot water before washing your clothing to clean out the buildup that is already in the machine
And dont forget to rate me pl. Merry Xmas to you too.
