SOURCE: Bearings on Hotpoint

the unit is only 18 nmohths old then what you need to do is contact the manufacture and explain to them what is happening and if they are having simuary isssues with that particular moidel number. Possibly they are and you may be able to have it repaired on their dime! 18 months is not that long for a washer to start having these problems if you have not abused the unit by overloading the washer or over filling it with soap. Good Luck

SOURCE: iam getting brown spots on white shorts after washing with Kenmore front loading washing machine

If it's gunk or build up the marks should wash away. In this case run a long cycle using "affresh" or "washer fresh" with an empty load and use the hottest water available to help rinse the gunk out.

If the marks do not wash away, it could be grease due to a bearing failure. Listen for loud growling or grinding either by spinning the drum by hand or putting it into a spin cycle. If this is the case, the rear tub assembly (contains bearing) will need to be replaced. Not much can be done about the ruined clothes :(

SOURCE: White marks on my clothes.

Are you using TOO much powder? And is the machine set to the correct rinse tempature? You mention white stuff, does it look like undissolved washing powder? Or fabric softner? Possibly try liquid detergent and see if the problem continues. And follow the recommended amounts of detergent for each wash load, and the tempature settings. And of course the water levels. All of the above are crucial to insure you get maximum preformance and utility out of your machine, with the results you expect. Let us know what you find. Kindest Regards, Slats.

Plastic shaving in wash from ring around basket. What could it be. Model GHW9400PW0 Whirlpool Duet

Maytag atlantis washer doesnt spin on spin cycle, also found plastic shavings in clothes, appear to be coming from the top outer edge of the tub, a white plastic trim piece. wash cycle seems to work fine...


There can be several causes, the drum off balance would cause the shavings during spin cycle , balance could be one of the the balancing mechanism failed and not running could be the balance sensor shutting down the spin cycle. You should start by checking the balance shocks .

WONT WASH OR SPIN


It needs a drive coupler for the motor/transmission.

Unplug machine. Just lean the machine back, pop the two clips on the pump and put it to the side. Take the two screws out of the motor clips (usually 1/4 inch), and pop those clips off. Motor will come off. You will see the 3 fingered white piece on the motor shaft and one on the transmission shaft. There is a rubber coupler that connects the two. Replace which ever white plastic piece is broken, or the rubber piece if that is it. Make sure not to bang the white plastic piece too far onto the shaft. The shaft should go flush with the white plastic part facing you.

Put motor and pump back together and plug in motor. You should be good to go.

Clothes must be perfectly balanced or washer will shake and walk


The snubber ring needs to be replaced. It's not an issue of balancing the clothes. The ring is plastic and wears down. Are there white plastic shavings under the washer? Those are from the ring. You can order it on PartSelect.com, and there are instructions on how to replace it.

GWL11 Burned Up?!?!


Go and look at my issue on Eco Smart that won't drain.

Unplug washer. Bail out water as much as you can. Look for water dripping in black motor area. If you find that, read on to see if this is your issue.

You can take off black motor/white housing all in one piece. On mine, water was dripping from white plastic housing and onto motor. had small amt of water leak out, then wouldn't run at all and smelled like electrical issue. Look for white chip on upper rim of that white plastic housing where it attaches to machine bottom. Push in on clip, and give the whole white plastic thing a twist and it comes off--motor and white plastic. Unhook electric couplers.

You either have 120V or 240V (mine is older GWL10US model) unit. White plastic and black motor are one unit when ordered. Save yourself the service call that I paid. Good luck!

Kenmore elite top load ms9711174


THE KENMORE TOP LOAD WASHER HAS A CLUTCH AND DRIVE COUPLING THAT IS PART OF THE SPIN CYCLE.
THE DRIVE COUPLING ATTACHES THE MOTOR TO THE TRANSMISSION AND IS MADE OF PLASTIC AND RUBBER.
IT COULD BE GETTING HOT AND TORN. THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE CLUTCH MAY BE SLIPPING. THERE COULD BE OIL THAT HAS GOTTEN INTO THE CLUTCH AND SO THE CLUTCH WON'T GRIP. PULL THE CABINET OFF OF THE WASHER OR TIP IT BACK AND CHECK THE FLOOR FOR BLACK OR WHITE SHAVINGS OR OIL. THE SHAVINGS WOULD BE FROM THE DRIVE COUPLING AND THE OIL COULD BE FROM THE TRANSMISSION OR THE SPIN TUBE.
