as for the washer there maybe a broken spring or where the spring attaches that balances the drum. look for this firest. for the dryer is it spinning around at the right speed if it is then the belt is ok. is it hot inside the dryer after running it when you open the door. if ti is check the dryer vent hose and exterior door at end of hose to see it they are plugged up . if the hose is plugged up the heat and moisture can't excape and the clothes will take a long time to dry.

I've an Asko Front loader W600 bought in 2001. It's been excellent, but has been shuddering and moving a lot lately. Today the door won't open and there is no power. There is washing in...


Hi, welcome to FixYa.

I'll start by addressing the later part of your post first, and that is by saying I wouldn't run out and buy a new washer...not yet anyway.


You should be able to get the garments out of the washer by way of manually unlocking the door. The door can be opened manually, see below for instructions.

**Watch for lots of water if it hasn't drained though...see below for manually drain as well**

Usually if the door won't open it's due to the unit not draining sufficiently (this may explain the "shuddering" as well if pump has debris within it) or perhaps a fuse tripping, thus no power. Just to be thorough you should check the pump to insure the filter isn't clogged, in my opinion, or do you know where it is and how to check it ?

In the event the pump, filter or hose is clogged or obstructed, will prevent the door lock from releasing...potentially causing a fuse to trip.

This is by design, but it's easy to confirm or dismiss.

Check as follows...

Let me know if any of this isn't clear and I'll attempt to help you move forward by way of possibly emailing this info to you.


Once you've cleared the pump filter or ruled out it was indeed blocked or not, you can now pull the manual door lock release located in the same area.

i.e.

macmarkus_24.jpg

Once that has been done, I'd now check the fuses in both the washer as well as the dryer...if yours plugs into the dryer as most Asko do. To do so is as follows...


CHANGING THE FUSE


1. Remove the fuse holder insert with a screwdriver (1/4 turn).

2. Replace the fuse. (The fuse must be a 250V, 15amp slow-blow fuse.)

3. Fit the fuse holder insert with the fuse into the fuse holder.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Stackable that has a screechy dryer


Sounds like it is worn out. Get a parts diagram and take it apart and see what parts are missing or worn out. The belt is probably coming apart and that is the black stuff. There are several plastic wear plates and a bearing/bushing for the drum, plus the belt idler and all these can wear out. The motor could also have a bad bushing in it but more than likely that will require a new motor as they don't usually sell just the bushing or end caps.

My Front End Load Washer does not drain


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can 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 product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

Maytag stacked washer/dryer fills with water, makes noise like it's working, but won't agitate, but at the end of it's cycle pumps out but won't spin either. Is this a belt problem? If so how hard is it to...


Definately sounds like the belt is off. Not too big of a problem for small hands mechanics. Usual problem lately with Maytag is the spindle pulley. For some reason they haven't been tightened properly and the pulley and belts are falling off. Pull it out from the wall remove the panel and see what you've got, really simple on the bottom end. Complicated stuff is up in the control panel. Make sure you get the pulleys lined up as close to level as you can or the belt will jump off on you during spin cycles. Good Luck!

Trouble balancing a used neptune front load washer


It might not be the leveling of it. Front load washing machines have a lot of power when they go into their spin cycle. Depending on your floor and if the washer is upstairs it is going to shake and make a ton of noise. When I worked for Sears as a tech I had to explain this to a lot of people that just got their first front loaders. Some of them would say that it sounded like a plane was flying threw the house when it would spin. Others said it was like an earthquake. Front loaders don't work good in mobile homes either. Not saying that you have one. Anyway, when these go into spin the have so much force coming from them and all that force goes straight to the floor. If your floor is weak or that washer is in a spot where it is weak it's going to shake. The best thing to do is go under the house and put in a support beam right under the washer. This will get it to lighten up a bit and maybe even fix all together. Give that a try and see how that does. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck.

Hello Rich
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, when the drying cycle is at the end the dryer will not shut off!

This really sounds like the timer mechanism's is failing.

Try to unplug the dryer or if you can not reach the plug power off the breaker for 5 minutes.
If this resets the system then it was a glitch in the electronic system and you should be fine.

If it does not remedy the problem then it sounds like the timer mechanism's is not shutting down and needs replacing.
Let me know!
