Testimonial: "thanks guru! I went to the seervicematters.com web site and found a tech manual for my machine. I believe it could be the flow meter that does not allow enough water. Front loader HE washers tumble the suspended dirt and grime back into the clothes. Beware potential purchasers, you cannot adjust water levels, manually!!"

    Godygog...you are correct. Front load washers leave clothes dirty! I was concerned about this issue, but fell for the salesman's pitch..."gravity forces the water through the clothes and removes all the dirt." BS! Try this: after a wash load completes, remove the clothes from the washer and place in a sink full of fresh, clean water and see for yourself.

Frigidaire front loader won't fill with water at beginning of cycle, goes straight to tumble


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire front loading washer will not fill with water at the beginning of the cycle and it goes straight into tumble. This seems like a possible miscommunication between your control panel and water valve. I would recommend performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to have issues with your washer I would suggest having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis. This will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Clothes Washer Will Not Drain


My front loading clothes washer wasn't draining properly, it wouldn't complete the cycle, and the clothes would come out still sopping wet.

We found that the problem was the filter located next to the water pump. It prevents large items from entering the water pump and causing severe damage to the pump.

To access the filter on my Whirlpool machine I had to remove the top panel, the front control panel, remove the door gasket from the front panel, and then remove the front panel. On some models all that is needed is to remove a panel on the bottom-front of the machine. (I wish mine was like that!)

This video I did on it might help you understand what to look for.
I imagine that a top loading clothes washer has a similar pre-filter.

This advice is for preventing or getting rid off that awful mildew smell associated with front loader style washing machines.

The first thing to do is to CHECK IN AND AROUND THE RUBBER DOOR BOOT (called a bellow) for small articles of clothing (like socks and underwear) that may have gotten lodged in behind the rubber. Pull the rubber back where it meets the wash tub and look behind it. It is common for small items to get stuck here, become forgotten and start to mildew. You should check this area after each wash and clean it periodically to get rid of the formation of soap scum, mold, and mildew. HINT: When you get ready to wash a load of towels, take a dirty towel and clean the door boot thoroughly (including the areas behind the rubber). Immediately place the towel in the wash and run it on a sanitary cycle. This way you eliminate the need for cleaning rags.

PERIODICALLY RUN THE WASHER ON A CLEANING CYCLE. Place the washer on the hottest setting you have (usually a Sanitary cycle) with nothing but bleach in the wash tub. Some newer models actually have a “Clean Cycle” available now just for this purpose. This helps keep the wash tub, drain lines and pump sanitized.

CHECK AND CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER. Accumulations of debris in the drain pump filter can also cause odors. HINT: If you own a shop vac, pull the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line. This will drain any residual water left in the tub, pump and drain lines BEFORE you remove the drain pump cover. This will prevent a messy clean up later.

LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN IF POSSIBLE. When not in use, leave the door open to allow the tub to air out and to keep mold and mildew from forming on the door bellow. I know this may not be desirable in some households with small children. If too much mildew forms on the rubber and it cannot be removed, replacement of the bellow may be required.

NOTE: This problem is common with front loader style washing machines. The doors on these machines have an air tight/water tight seal that is great for sealing the washer during the wash cycle, but can be terrible for collecting small garments and for not allowing the tub to properly air out when not in use. Following these simple preventive measures can go a long way towards preventing harmful mold and mildew, and towards extending the life of the door bellow and pump.

Whites don't get clean in front loading washing machine


I have the same problem and I'm really aggrevated that I paid alot of $$ for something that doesn't do the job it was purchased to do! I'm going to look at replacing it with a top loader. I think LG should take responsibility for selling a bad product.

I have a Kenmore 'Elite' front loading washer that stinks


Have you been leaving the door cracked open after washing a load? If not, mildew will form and smell. If you have, then it would be something else. Respond with any questions.

Whites are not white


This is from not enough HOT loads.

Fatty deposits gather between the basket and tub during COLD washes.

Then they are being released in large numbers when you do your whites on HOT.

It is recommended to do 1 HOT load per week.

Do an empty load with some degreaser added (like Goo-Gone) on the fullest/hottest setting you have.

Washer is turning my white clothes gray


Oil from transmission is a good possibility. The machine is still young but sounds like you do a lot with the washer. Better have a friend that don't mind looking it over, make sure that's oil and go from there!

My whites are not comming clean and are not a bright white


I don't know if this is a solution to your particular problem but when we wash whites, first, we wash them twice,with hot water, second, we dont use bleach!!! (this will eventually yellow them). Third, we dont use liquid softner. For the whites we use a softner sheet in the dryer. Since we started to use this procedure I have noticed a marked decrease in areas such as under arm stains in white under shirts. I have some that are 2 years old and have no stains or yellowing like this. Hope this helps
