As first step ensure the machine is level. The feet have screw adjusters to do this with. Some have so called self levelers on the front but they often stick after a long use.

After checking level make sure the load is evenly distributed in the machine, and machine is not overloaded.

After ensuring is not any of the above, check the braces at the top ot the tube that keep it lined up,If you clothes are not off balance in the tub. one of these braces has come loose or broken , most probably broken.

Try to make sure that the load is distributed properly.

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.

Sounds like you are possibly tripping the breaker or have a power issue with the control board in the unit. Contact a professional.

Replace drum bearings on hotpoint aquarius wf000g


You really don't want to know how but here it is. The bearing is located in the rear shell and is not removable the rear shell has to be replaced which means removing the tub assembly from the machine and completely disassembling. With 30 years of appliance repair the last one I did took about 3 hours.

MLE2000 front load washer


Hi..I had the same problem yesterday...the maching would start when I pushed the button and then stop..I had to push the button again to get it going..My stacked set is around 8 years old.

Here's what we did..moved the washer away from the water source and unscrewed the water intake lines..there is a little screen there...took the screen out of both hot and cold lines..one screen has some debris in it..the other was almost completely blocked..we are on a well and sometimes dirt..etc..gets in the lines..

Today no problems doing the laundry..its working like new..

Tub spins too fast on all cylces


Just wondering: did the technician also replace the motor control unit? Or is that the 'spin unit' that you mentioned?

See pages 4-7 and 5-4 in the repair manual.

Neptune-is water supposed to remain, after wash is finished, between tub and outer shell


if you hear water when you spin the basket,that is the front tub balance ring.it is filled halfway with water in order to assist mach in balancing load.that is a normal sound.the mach may also leave some water between the basket and outer shell depending on lengh of drain hose.as long as the clothes do not come in contact with the water it is fine.
