Sand in washing machine

Is it possible for sand to somehow come through the washing machine's water source and then be deposited in the bottom of the machine after the clothes are washed. It happened once or twice with our machine and i have no clue as to where it came from

SOURCE: washing tablet not desolving, dishes still dirty, have opened machine when been on 5 ninutes and only cold water pouring in, what is the problem please?

test your hot water over your sink and see how long it takes to get hot. if it takes 30 to 40 seconds just run your hot water until it gets hot then run dishwasher. or if water not hot enough yo can turn up your water heater temp. also check your heat element

How do I clear iron deposits from my Whirlpool


A quick cheap solution is to pour a bottle of white vinegar into a wash cycle and see if that cleans the tub. But, it may seem to me to be a hard water problem as you do not indicate if your water source is from a well or city water. The usual solution for iron in your source water is for you to invest in a water softener unit.

Why does my Kenmore washing machine leaks in front when agitating?


Most likely the sight of water leaking from the front of the machine, means it is leaking from somewhere else. Check all inlet and outlet hose connections. Hard water deposits build up and can cause minor leaks over time. If it is only noticeable during the wash cyclee,(agitating) it is possible there is a leak in the drum. Rare, but possible.

My Hayward S240 is only catching a small portion of the dead algae. I have replaced the media, the laterals are intact, and have added a filter enhancer. The spider gasket is good. I have lots of dead...


dead algae is made up of microscopic particles. Most sand filters have trouble filtering out particles that small. I would recommend using a flocculent that will force the particles to settle to the bottom, you can then set the multiport valve to the "waste" setting and vacuum as much of the debris as possible. You can use an additive like fiberclear to help the filter clear the water up quicker.

Top rack wont clean


Take the top rack out of the machine.The remove the wash arm they usually unscrew by turning a nut in the middle and wash under running water also check that the holes are free from any food deposits.Replace and give it a test this should work now.The other possibility is that the bottom arm is not fitted correctly,in wich case remove the bottom arm and fit properly.
Let me know how it went.

Is there supposed to be a sediment type material, like sand, in the drainage pump area right after the big black hose that comes off the bottom of the washer?


No, that's an accumulation of sediment from your clothes and/or your water supply.

The good news is that you can simply lower the drain hose and flush out the sediment accumulation. Then you can run another wash cycle with some cold water and try to get as much out as possible. If you can, you can disconnect the discharge hose at the pump body and flush it out by hand.

The issue is to figure out if you're getting all that sand from the clothes being washed or from your water source.

Sand will hasten the wear and tear on most any machine, so unless this washer is at a beach house, where you tend to get alot of sand in washers, by the very nature of towels, etc., you'll want to address this problem.

If you're on a private water well, you would be well advised to install a whole house water filter to help minimize the amount of sediment you're getting into your washer. If you're at a beach house, try to shake out the towels and other clothes before putting them in the washer to get as much sand out of them as possible.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Washing machine overfills


Grab the tube off the water level switch that comes from the bottom of the tub and blow it out so that the sand in the bottom won't be blocking the operation,pump out the water, secure the tube tightly to the pressure switch and retry.aff8f03.jpg

Sand continues to be present in the washer


check your in bound lines if you have a filter in your house it may be leaching sand into your water supply or if you are on a well it also my be leaching sand check your inbound water by filling up a bucket with water using your supply lines
1 bucket for hot 1 bucket for cold

this might help locate the contaminatin in your system sand will tend to colect at the lowest point in a water system

No water coming through washer line


If there was work done on the water lines, they may have lost some grit in them. I would turn off both supply lines to the machine, gain access to the rear of it, bring along a pot to catch the spills and take both lines off at both ends, inspect the wire mesh screens that will be at (at least) one end of each hose. While the hoses are detached from the machine inlets, check those too for debris/sand possible other contaminents. Additionally, hold a pot or other container under the faucets and open each one of them quickly and briefly to flush possible crud out of those and perhaps the line too. Look at the water you've caught and see if there is any deposits that have come out with it.    I think you will find the water supply obstructed from the wall to the machine.

Food Deposits left on dishes


I had an old machine with a similiar problem & I found that food had somehow entered into the arm that spins & sprays out water. The food blocked somewhat the holes which of course means less cleaning.
