Water will not drain

Thank you very much for your help, I recently had the door gasket replaced by a service company, I complained after the repair was complete that the door was not in alignment and it had to be physically lifted up to close the door. . Is it possible that this miss alignment caused the door control to fail. I made an error in my model number it is WFXD5201UC , Thank you for all your help

I have a LG WM2487HWM front load steaming washer. It has had the regular odor/mildew/mold problem from almost the first month. Recently the machine has struggled with draining all the water. Now it leaves...


Leave the door open for 24 hrs after wash for Odor problem. You need to clean the rubber gasket around the door with 1:4 Bleach/Water (It's Fun!...Not!) First though. Not draining? You need a New Drain Pump! Go to YouTube and place LG Washer not draining. They have 20 videos on how to repair...Very Easy!

Have a whirlpool AWO 3551 washing machine. Door locked light flashes and machine stops at random points in the program. Pump works OK and drains water. Don't suspect door lock module as washer works on...


My daughter had the same problem for about two years. A repair man came out and told her to call the company and tell them she wanted it fixed under a recall. She said the computer board had to be replaced and it was recalled due to a flaw in the machine. The service man came back again after she called, and he fixed it for free.

The loading door gasket-- the big rubber liner doesn't drain


Some front loaders have a door boot drain hole, most do not and it is normal for some water to accumulate at bottom of boot. To help with mold and mildew use a washing machine cleaning solution, follow directions. Also a bleach solution of 2 parts water 1 part bleach sprayed on area helps. If mildew is really bad, nothing will completly remove it. Make sure you use only a high efficiency detergent.

Duet leaking out the front door. They replaced


Hello LPeck, This is a pretty common issue with all front loading washers. Typically it has to do with the door bellows (gasket) that seals the door to the washer cabinet.

First, look very carefully at the gasket all the way around, using a flashlight. Pay close attention to the area where the water flows into the washer. This is usually located on the upper part of the gasket and sometimes the water inlet port gets the gasket moved out of place and when the water is flowing into the washer, it can leak outside of the gasket. Make sure that the gasket is properly located around the water inlet port and that the gasket does NOT extend past the water nozzle.

The other thing to do is again look very carefully at the entire gasket for small cuts or tears that might be allowing water to leak out. Even a small cut can allow alot of water to leak out of the wash tub, so carefully push/pull the gasket with your fingers while shining the flashlight onto it.

In almost all cases, it is a cut or torn gasket that is the source of the leak.

This is an easy self-service repair, only requiring a few basic hand tools to remove the gasket bellows from the washer cabinet and inner wash tub. Just fold the back lip from the washer cabinet and you'll see the retainer wire that holds the bellows onto the cabinet. With that removed, you can then slip the bellows gasker off the cabinet lip and see and get at the inner wash tub retaining clamp. Typically held on with a large diameter hose clamp. Remove that and you're ready to install the new one in the reverse order.

Just be sure to let the new gasket lay out to help get most of the kinks out of it, from being in the small shipping box, and install it slowly and carefully, so not to put any cuts in it.

This will save you around $150 +/- instead of having a service tech do the installation/repair for you.

If you want to see and order the part yourself, you can go to the following link to see the gasket and how it is installed. You can order it online from sears, or any place you wish.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!


It is is normal for the Neptune to have water left in the inner tub after the wash finishes!
I used to have a Neptune and I sold them too!!
I had them change that drain under warranty when it was new and it never stopped the smell or the mold!
After the third repair I threw it in the trash and bought a Speed Queen Commercial grade washer and thats the last one I will ever by!
8 loads a week for 25 years!!!!!!!

****************************************************************
The moldy oder problem is in every Maytag Neptune made!
The Neptune comes new with water in it from the test run!
All the water never gets totally discharged. This is one reason why everyone complains about the moldy, musky or even stinky smell of the Neptune! Every day I have people here asking what too do about the moldy wet smell!
THIS IS SERIOUS!!!!!

I do tell them to run the washer once a week without clothes and with hot water and 1/4 cup of bleach. And then make suer to do only white clothes directly after wards as not to get a drop of beach water on a colored article of clothing!
Then leave the door open after every load when not in use!
That's Maytag!!!!!!!!
GOOD THING WHIRLPOOL JUST BOUGHT THEM OUT LAST YEAR!
Perhaps they will make some good changes!!





Hope this helps and makes you feel a little better as to some water sounds! HOW OLD IS THE WASHER??????

Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!

If none of these tasks remedy the heat problem then here is a good company that's found nation wide.
