    I can't shut the door! Is there some locking facility when a combination of buttons are pressed?

    Mitch3388 = is your solution to open the door, - or are these instructions on how to do the basic load. We have the same machine with no instruction manual at all & have no idea !! If we cant work this out soon, it'll end up on the tip !

Well well well - Welcome to the Bendix Club!

Here is the secret!

Push all 4 buttons in!

Turn on the Cold water only!

Set the first dial on 3 dots before the GREEN #12

Set the second dial to snow or cold

Set the third dial to one dot after the green 7....

If this doesnt work...the something is wrong with the machine!

Or email me.

Sometimes the clothes come out of the washer dirtier than when I've put them in! Brown streaks that sort of come of with my finger - sort of like wet dryer lint or sludge. Rewashing takes them away,...

Your washer has too much build up of sludge from excessive use of detergent and fabric softener. You will need to purchase a package of washer machine cleaner from the local hardware store and run the washer on either "clean tub" setting or "sanitary" setting without any clothes in it. Use the cleaner at least once a week for one month and then once a month for maintenance.
Use only 2 tablespoons of detergent per wash.
Good luck

I have a wdr1242 washer dryer the dryer seems to take forever to dry clothes sometimes 2 hours or more even for just half a dozen socks

If your dryer is still heating up; Check the dryer vent hose, also check down inside where the lint screen goes. If no lint is obstructing there, check the exterior dryer vent. Sometimes you have a screen to keep birds and rodents out of there, and may become clogged with lint. If no screen, check inside the flap, maybe someone moved in, or dryer lint is clogging up your exterior vent.

We found that we needed to turn down the water inlet to almost off and then the dryer worked when we had the same problem.
Remember to turn it back up again before the next wash
