Lavamac front loading 28kg commercial washing machine(coin operated). When I press "cold" wash, why is the warm water coming out?

Your washing machine has to release some warm water even when liquid detergent is used. The purpose of the brief release of warm water is to dissolve powdered detergent and/or flush liquid detergent residue.

My washer wont rinse or spin and when its finished washing it gets to rinse cycle and beeps and error code e4 comes up i emptied clothes and it still wont work

No make or model came through with your question... so the FIRST GUESS... is ... THIS IS A NEW RELATIONSHIP with a "HE" (HIGH EFFIEIENCY) washing machine.

You can CONTAMINATE your machine quite badly by not using THE RECOMMENDED "HE" rated detergents... & CLEANERS.

These new machines will rapidly deteriorate in performance... if the APPROPRIATE (HE) detergents ARE NOT USED.

Sensors sample the detergent/dirt in the water to enable the wash cycle to adjust wash time & water levels...

By NOT FOLLOWING the INSTRUCTIONS you are risking PERMANANT DAMAGE to these sensors...

Read your OWNERS MANUAL... There-in (I believe you will find
HE cleaners (not cheap) are recommended to ATTEMPT to restore performance...

Else you are looking at an EXPENSIVE SERVICE CALL on a NEW MACHINE.. Who knows... MAYBE it will be covered under your WARRANTY... Stranger things have happened (these days).

Good luck with that.

How do you fix too much soap in washing machine?

You are using the wrong detergent for your wash. You probably have a "e" type machine and you probably are using the regular detergent. Some machine are not using too much waster so they have to use special detergent for those machine.Look for the "e" next time you buy .

The problem with my top loder panasonic washing machine is clothes dont come out clean.the liquid detergevt that i use does not always dissolve during wash and asa result clothes stiil soapyz.there are...

If you have the user's manual for this machine, check to see that you are using the recommended detergent and the correct quantity of detergent. Some machines will actually fail mechanically from using the wrong type of detergent (such as using standard detergent in a high-efdficiency washer). The pH (softness/hardness) of your water also determines how thoroughly the detergent dissolves and rinses from clothes.

Q2. Why are there black stains on clothes after washing?
A2.May be your washing machine is dirty due to the residual accumulated through times and need to be overhauled. The possibility is that, a build up caused by interaction of fabric softener and detergent which can flake off from washing machine tub and stains the clothes. Try to dilute and dissolve the softener before putting it into the machine to reduce such black stains.
Spotting can also be a reaction between detergent and fabric softener, a leaking washing machine transmission, or excessive deposits of detergent or fabric softener in the tub flaking off during the wash cycle.

Good luck from Detroit, MI, USA.
