Re: Liquid between the plastic window of the door

Well now the fun begins. The plastic window won't come off without breaking it. However you can seperate the door. Open the door to the stop and with a t20 torx bit remove the 4 screws that holds the door to the hinge. Then as you close the door it will come off. Lay the door on a towel with the face down. With a putty knife along the inside outer edge stating at the bottom of the door, you can divide the door in 1/2. Now you can get to the panel you want to clean. Use care when doing this as it is possible to break the door. The top (handle) of the door will be the last piece you pull out. You reassemble in reverse order.

Is it normal for liquid to be present in the top part of the drum?

Yes I have this type of washer and it has the water in a ring at the top of the drum to help balance it out during spin, not quite sure why but yes it should be there. The gargling sound you describe could also be the balancing hooks that attach the drum to the top of the washer which sometimes make strange noises but there fine.

Residue left on clothes from no agitator top load GE washer

Do you use liquid laundry detergent & liquid fabric softener? If you do then this could be the source of the residue that is getting on your clothes. Over a period of time the gummy residue from liquids will accumulate between the tubs. You can clean out the washer with a product called Washer Magic or the unit will need to be disassembled & cleaned thoroughly by hand. Do not let raw liquid detergent or fabric softener come into contact with your clothes.
Also, here is a link to the agitator cap if you should need it.

Hi, I have kenmore washer and after washing my clothes getting some white stains on them. How to solve this problem?

If you are using a liquid fabric softener , then start using dryer sheets instead OR using less softener . Also be sure you are using the correct temp setting for softener " disolvement " . Re-washing the clothes should take out the spots . If you have dryed the clothes , may take several washes to remove the spots .

Can i use liquid fabric softener in this machine?

If your Admiral washer has no liquid fabric softener dispenser on top of the agitator, the instructions say to dilute the recommended amount of softener with 1/2 to 1 cup of warm water and add it to the rinse cycle. The manual also states that you should be careful not to pour it directly on the clothes or on the tub, only into the water.

Soap in wrong dispenser

Just do one or washes with an old towel in the drum. Keep doing these washes until the m/c no longer froths.

that cap has a rubber o-ring at the edge. it covers the nut so that no liquid would be spilling on the metal nut . just slowly press the cap downwards the inside of the agitator and press it firmly then put back the softener container on top.

Can I use color safe bleach in my new cabrio, and if so where do I put it?

According to the manual on pages 12 & 13.

Place a load of sorted clothes into the washer. See “Laundry
■ Load evenly to maintain washer balance. Mix large and
small items. Items should move easily through the wash
■ Load only to the top of the basket as shown. Overloading
can cause poor cleaning. Items need to move easily
through the wash water.
2. Pour measured powdered or liquid High Efficiency detergent
into the detergent dispenser. Always use the detergent
dispenser, and do not put detergent directly onto clothes in
the washer.
3. Add color-safe bleach (powdered or liquid) to this dispenser,
if needed. Be sure to match powdered color-safe bleach with
powdered detergent or match liquid color-safe bleach with
liquid detergent.
4. Pour measured liquid chlorine bleach into the liquid chlorine
bleach dispenser, if needed. Bleach is diluted and
automatically dispensed at the proper time during the wash
■ Do not overfill. Do not dilute. Do not use more than 1 cup
(250 mL) for a full load. Use less with a smaller load size.
■ Follow the garment and the chlorine bleach
manufacturer’s directions for proper use.
■ To avoid spilling, use a cup with a pouring spout. Do not
let bleach splash, drip, or run down into the washer basket.
■ At the end of the cycle, a small amount of water may be
left in the dispenser. This is normal.
NOTE: Use only liquid chlorine bleach in this dispenser.

5. Pour measured liquid fabric softener into the fabric softener
dispenser, if desired.
■ Do not overfill. The dispenser holds 3 oz (94 mL), or a
capful of fabric softener.
■ The fabric softener is dispensed in the final rinse. If Extra
Rinse is selected, the fabric softener will be dispensed
during the Extra Rinse.
■ Do not spill or drip any fabric softener onto the clothes.
■ At the end of the cycle, a small amount of water may be
left in the dispenser. This is normal.
NOTE: Use only liquid fabric softener in this dispenser.
6. Close the washer lid.
7. Press POWER. This turns on the washer display.
8. Select a Wash Cycle. See “Cycles.”
9. Select the desired Modifiers. See “Modifiers.”
10. Select an Option, if desired. See “Options.”
11. Select Delay Wash, if desired. See “Delay Wash” in the
“Modifiers” section.
12. Press START. The wash cycle begins, and the display shows
the estimated remaining time. The lid will lock.
NOTE: If you do not press Start within 5 minutes of pressing
Power, the washer automatically shuts off.

The way that I read the manual, your color safe bleach would go in the detergent dispenser. Your liquid chlorine bleach would go in the bleach dispenser.

Fabric softener is left in bottom of drum after wash cycle completes

We had the same problem. You have to remove the part that the softener goes in and clean it. You will be amazed at how much build up is in there. That solved the problem for us.
