It may be from beneath your drum. If you don't have a habit of cleaning those parts regularly start it from now on.

It's a whirlpool awz 7466. It runs fine, but I do not know which settings it needs to be on to dry my clothes normally. A small load will take at least 2 hours and makes laundry take forever. Any help


Hi Jennifer,

Two hours to dry a small load of laundry (even a large load for that matter) is way too long. You're wasting electricity too. The first thing you should do is consult the manual for the dryer to be sure you've selected the proper setting. The literature for this can be found here.

Consult this literature page 63 for the location and cleaning instructions for the (e) lint filter after each drying cycle and (h) heat exchanger at least monthly. Failure to clean both will result in long drying times. If you have the "Gentle" cycle selected, drying time will be prolonged, too.

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you solve the problem. Good luck!

Where is filter on my hotpoint aquarius wmf540 washing machine, im getting white fluff over all my clothes everytime i put a wash on, im guessing the filter needs cleaning and just wondered where it is

see last page.

also, you should try run a cycle without any clothes (add a bit of bleach) in it in cold water for once to rinse out the dirt.

The timer is at fault.
During the spin cycle the timer should send intermittent power to the water valve. This activates cold to help rinse soap residue from the laundry.
If cold is continuous it means the timer is not breaking correctly.

WATER IS COLLECTING AND STAYING IN THE GASGET AND HAS AN ODOR, HELP, Please


Betty, this is problematic of all front loading washers. I have some helpful suggestions, which have helped us with our own front loading washer.

First, whenever you're done doing a load of laundry, don't close the door all the way shut. Leave it open a couple of inches for a day to let it air dry out, which will prevent the nasty smelling odor you're getting.

I also take a small rag/washcloth to wipe out the door seal/gasket after we're done washing, that way, there's less water to contribute to foul odors, etc.

The other thing we discovered is to make our last load of wash the hot water wash, whenever we're doing whites, or the stain cycle. This helps get rid of any gunk that might hang around between wash days.

Now we don't always have a hot water wash everytime we do laundry, but by just wiping out the gasket and leaving the door open, we eliminated the odor issues completely.

Frankly, the gasket shouldn't have to be wiped out when you're done washing, but that's a design issue that we've overcome with a simple washcloth. So just do these simple steps and you'll save yourself some frustration.

We really like how clean our laundry gets with the front load washer and how little water is needed to do a load, so we've decided it's worth taking the time to wipe the gasket once we're done for the day, and to leave the door open to prevent any nasty odors.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Clothes stink!


Odor from your washing machine is being transferred to your clothes.
The washer must be cleaned first or it will "reinfect" your clothing upon washing. The secret is to clean the "splash area" just above the normal waterline where suds and soiled water splash up and don't get rinsed out. To clean this area add a washer cleaner to a full load of laundry and wash in a hot setting. The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the splash area. During this cleaning intermittent pausing to soak will give the cleaner time to dissolve the moldy mess.
Also, leaving the door open makes the problem worse because it dries out the residue which makes it harder to remove.

Whirlpool Duet Front Load Washer WFW8300SW00 Problem: I am using HE detergent and using less than the recommended amount; however, there is always a small ***** of suds sitting on the seal when I open the...


If you have a water softener or very soft water, soap will suds up more than if your water is normal or hard, so you'll need to use less than recommended. Obviously soap breaks down the dirt, but the dirt also breaks down the soap, so if your clothes are not very dirty to start with, you'll need less soap than if they were more dirty. Soap can also be stored in laundry like towels and cleaning rags and when combined with the laundry soap will suds more. You can try raising the leveling legs in the front to tip the washer back. This will help the water drain back into the tub instead of pooling on the boot. You can also try using the 'extra rinse' option. Keep cutting back on how much soap you use until your laundry is not as clean as it should be. You might be surprised how little soap you can use!

Kenmore 94802 - Goes through all cycles.. Doesn't stop after last spin cycle.


I hate to say it, but it sure sounds like a timer problem. There are contacts inside that move and switch items no matter what setting its in. Its a possibilty that the power contact is stuck closed and when you manually turn it off it breaks contact. The job to replace is really not that hard, remove console (unplug unit first), mark your wires, then just replace. The part though is a touch expensive (131789200 Sears Part Number). Probably would be a little cheaper than buying a new unit I guess. Let me know if you need any further information. Jim
