Build up of dirt in tub making clothes dirty... How do I clean inside of machine?


If you use powder detergent ( clay carrier) the build up is from undissolved powder ( clay)
It forms cakes between the spin tub and the outer bowl
The fix is to pull the washer apart and physically remove the caked up mud from all parts of the machine
The prevention of future mud is to use liquid detergents rather than powders
It works like this powder detergents have a small percentage of actual detergent in use and that is dried onto a clay base as a transporter agent
In the wash , the detergent is released but the clay will not dissolve
Most is pumped out with each spin but a certain amount remains , dries and starts the dirt process through the clothes
With liquid detergents there is the same amount of actual detergent but the carrier is water and that is diluted in the spin and completely flushed away

Washer can't remove the soap , and have to wash the clothes handly to clean soap


Remove the soap build up between the wash tub and the outer basin with a fridge or dryer lint brush. The soap accumulates and builds up between the two tubs. Clean it after a recent load of laundry so it has a chance to soften up. Make sure the washer is unplugged when you clean this area.
Use Borax and half the amount of soap in future wash loads to prevent this build up.

Washer over fills and water comes out the door. Water continues to run even durring the pump out cycle just before the spin cycle


  1. Water inlet valve. It may not be able to shut completely when the electricity to it has been turned off. The valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. Water may accumulate substantially and overflow. Remove the washer's cabinet to access it.
  2. Water level switch. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the air pressure in the tube increases and activates the switch when the water reaches a certain level. When the switch is obstructed, it cannot tell the water to shut off and the machine overflows.Clear it from any obstruction.
  3. Air-hose. It is connected to the water level switch through a tube. If the tube or hose is cracked or broken, no enough pressure builds up to trigger the switch and shut the water supply off. Check it for any obvious damage.

    Washer smells have tried wiping the rubber ring and dealer sold s


    You may find it hard to believe, but most newer front load washers have this problem after being in use for a while. Mine is a GE, and they have the worst reputation according to owner forums.

    So here's the fix:

    First, I assume you know that little pieces of stuff build up under that rubber ring at the bottom. You need to clean that out with 50% bleach and 50% water. Occasionally it doesn't hurt to run a quick wash without detergent through the machine empty. Add bleach liberally to the water. After it is done, leave the door open a crack to allow it to dry.

    It's the nature of the beast!

    WASHER MAGIC is the revolutionary product specifically formulated to safely and effectively clean the family washing machine. Top loading machine use whole bottle. Front loading use 1/2 bottle. You may rub Washer Magic on with a rag to eliminate odors.

    Why Use WASHER MAGIC? Every time you wash your clothes, hard water and detergents causes lime scale and rust to build up inside the tub, pump and hoses. This build-up reduces the ability of your washing machine to perform. Mineral build-up acts as an abrasive increasing the wear on your clothes. The result: your clothes are not as clean as they could be and wear out sooner.

    If you are unhappy with the way your clothes comes out of the wash, then WASHER MAGIC may be the solution you have been looking for. Only WASHER MAGIC can restore the family washing machine to the way it performed when it was new. Use once a month for optimal washer performance and to keep control of trouble causing build-up.

    Water Building up Inside Front Load Washer when not in use


    Okay, it is normal to hear water sloshing around inside the wash tub when the washer is not in use. A small amount of residual water remains in the wash tub under the wash basket (stainless steel tub), and resides in the drain line and drain pump. That's why it is important to keep the door slightly open when not in use to allow the drum to air out. The water will not evaporate, but it will help reduce the build up of odors, mold and mildew.

    Now...if your washer is slowly accumulating water in the wash basket area over time, your water inlet valve is probably starting to fail. The leak can be very subtle and you may not notice it. The water only comes from one source - the fill valve via the dispenser. If you wish to replace it, the part is available at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part you need can be found under the "Dispenser" heading as item number 1. The replacement is very simple if you follow these steps:

    1. UNPLUG the washer and turn off water supply.
    2. Remove both fill hoses.
    3. Remove the top panel of the washer by removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer.
    4. Slide the top panel back, then it lifts off.
    5. The water inlet valve is located in the left rear of the washer as facing from the front.
    6. Remove the rubber hose leading from the valve and the electrical connections.
    7. Remove the mounting screws holding the inlet valve in place.
    8. Re-install new valve using these steps inthe reverse order given.

    I hope you find this information helpful. If you have further questions, please post back and let me know.
