Re: steam coming out of washer drawer

This problem happened to us too, fortunately it's quite easy to repair. The problem may lie with the water inlet solenoid (rear of machine, top left under the top cover). The cold water inlet to condense the steam may not be working correctly and the steam comes out of the detergent drawer. Replace this solenoid (bank of three on the water inlet) and this should solve your problem.

How do i clean the mold in my soap dispensing on a HE5t steam washer

Open the drawer and there is a tab at the rear, press down on it and the drawer will come completely out where you can take it to a sink and clean it good with some Tilex and a toothbrush. To reinstall it just push it straight in.

Hi my becko washing machain is leaking warter from the back dose anyone no why it is

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but the only way for anyone to find out where the water is leaking from is to remove the back (?) cover and look. It could be from a number of hoses- hot water inlet, cold water inlet, feed to the dispenser drawer hose(s),drainage hose...................
Sorry again but you will need someone to investigate for you ;-0(

Good luck,
John C

Leaking Washing Machine

no you should not need to spend any money on this . it sounds like the hose going from the back of the soap draw to the drum may be blocked just boil your kettle and pour it into the draw if this clears the blockage you wil see steam in the drum then put more hot water about another 2 kettles full down the draw and push the draw in and operate machine on the spin cycle. if the blockage is still there take off the lid you will see the hose from the back of the soap box and sqeeze it this should release the blockage

your soap drawer is most likely to be blocked , the only true way of clearing the blockage is to take the soap dispenser completely out . you will see that all the jets will be blocked ,you can do this before taking it all apart by taking the drawer out band looking up, if it looks clean ie; no black gunge then it may be a water valve problem, as the cold fill side has 2 internal valves both have come on together to clear the conditioner compartment.

Tumble dryer getting too hot

It sounds like your vent tube is blocked or kinked. Look at the back of your dryer and you will see that tube coming out. Make sure that it is not kinked. If it is, make it not so. You may have to pull out the dryer to make room. If that is not the case, check the following:
  1. Follow the tube to where it goes outside and make sure it is not blocked. Sometimes critters will build a home in the nice warm tube.
  2. Make sure your lint collect in the door is cleaned out.
One of these suggestions should do it.

Good Luck!
