    yes the spil is the brownish colour, oily when i have touched it.

  • luisa_sgro May 30, 2010

    sorry to ask this again but has it been noisier than usual on spin?please reply and i sure i can help you further.

  • christodo122 May 30, 2010

    no i don't think so if it has been noisier, plus it is bit old already so i am assuming that the time has come?

  • luisa_sgro May 30, 2010

    ok. the only place that the rusty oily water comes from is the bearings. has your machine got a back panel that you can unscrew to see the drive pulley for the drum? if it has remove it and see if there is any of that oily liquid leaking from near the center of the drive pulley. make sure you turn power off at wall before you work on it. please reply and let me know how you got on

SOURCE: Bleach and fabric softener dispensers full of water

This is a problem common to virtually all front-loaders. Pull the dispenser drawer right out (it is designed to come right out - you might just need to give it a bit of a jiggle to get it past the stop) Remove the cover/caps from the drawer (sometimes this is a snap-on cover over the back of the drawer, sometimes a top-hat shaped cover over the siphon spigots). Give everything a thorough clean off with hot water (scrubbing with an old toothbrush helps), then reassemble. A.

SOURCE: Bad smell in our washing machine LG Front Loader WD-8074

I had the same problem.  It's a design flaw with all HE's I have learned, they are too efficient.   I visited my local Sears store and purchased WasherFresh.  I initially tried Affresh made by Whirlpool, did not help at all.  WasherFresh I initially had to use 3 tables to get rid of the buildup and now I use it once a month and now our towels do not smell moldy.  Hope this helps.

probably better change the pump if you feel any up and down slack in the impellor. you may have an ingress of water through the seal.

SOURCE: I have an LG Tromm WM2277HW front load washing

Escaping water alongside a nasty smell is often the cause of a blocked water pump or resivour the more washs you do the more the lint will build up & the more the lint builds up the more bloked it will become meening the more water that will escape.. this should be an easy fix but not for everyone.. 1st make sure you have disconected all the power supply then check any or all filters you may have after that you will need to look inside to find the water resivour this will be a plastic bottle shaped for your machine just looking at it you will be able to tell if it has a lint or limescale build up if so it will need removing & flushing out.. there may also be an extra filter at the bottom front of your machine if you open this some water will leak out & you will be able to see if you have a lint build up (this will also have the best of your nasty smell in it) the smell is an effect simular to doing a wash & leaving the cloths in the machine for a few days basicly the lint is submerged in water for long periods of time giving it that smell once cleaned out the smell will subside too

Hope this helps

WD 9900 does not dry


Most all dryers, including combo washer/dryers, have an electric wire coil for a heating element.
I suspect yours has given up ( they usually break in two, stopping the electrical flow). You should need to have the element replaced.
Going to need to take the whole machine apart to fix this.
Be blessed.

Maytag neptune washing machine. The error code is Lr. I know what that means, but it is 11 years old and am wondering if it is worth it to fix or just replace.


I would say yes, just remember that replacement washing machines are getting really expensive. First, get a couple of quotes on repairing your Maytag washing machine. Ok, what does Lr. mean?
Maybe I could save you some money, that is if you are mechanical inclinded. GB...stewbison.

The tub won't drain and it spins very slowly. I've also noticed, over the last couple years, some oil/rust spots on my clothes. It is a top loading washer that is over 20 years old.

. I have a LG WD12126RD front load washer dryer


This is a heater error. The heater element is open and not working. This is usually the problem but it could be other things also. You need a service call from an LG tech.

My front load kenmore leaves faint dark streaks in


look carefully inside the tub, gasket, lid. There may be some debris of some sort stuck somewhere causing this problem.

Then run the machine adding only two cups of vinegar. this will clean it.

My GE Profile Washing Machine Keeps Stopping


Repair requires replacement of the transmission / break assembly. Unless you are really attached to this machine, it's time for a new machine. Average life of a washer is about 11 years doing 8 loads per week. Look into the front load machines, which use about 1/4 the water and spin about twice as fast, and are gentle on fabrics while cleaning very well. Please don't bother rating this, as non FixYa ratings drop my rating, and I'm sure you don't want to shoot the messenger.
