The only reason clothes not getting clean is a wash plate and wash plate dome not working. Verify if these parts are working to clean the clothes by opening the lid and the Peekaboo Mode allows you the see the washer during a wash action for 5 seconds at 150 nutates per second after the lid is opened. You should press the Start button when the lid is closed to continue the cycle.

The belt is likely broken if you can hear the motor running without a wash plate action. Gently pry on the emblem and remove the T-20 Torx screw holding the washer top to the cabinet latch.

Slide the washer top approximately 1/2 inch forward to clear the cabinet latch then raise the front of the washer top up and prop it high enough.

Remove the four screws located along the top edge of the front cabinet panel then lift the front cabinet panel out and up to disengage the slots at each side of the panel from the tabs in the side panels.

Check the physical condition of the drive belt and the transmission assembly for any sign of conspicuous damage. Replace the belt if worn or broken.

Activate or bypass the interlock switches on the left and bottom side of the cabinet as shown then plug the machine in and start a cycle to verify the operation of the drive motor.

I have a MHWE500VW11 and I hate it! It doesn't get the clothes clean. Give me my old top loader any day. I have to over wash everything on steam clean and it's killing my clothes. I do more dry...


One thing to check is the capacity of the machine. If you used to have a top loader you may be used to packing more clothes in, and the front loader may not be able to clean the same capacity.

Your manual should indicate the maximum weight of clothes for each kind of load. For example a 40 degree mixed load should usually weigh less than a 40 degree cottons load.

If you try washing less in each load you should find your clothes get cleaner.

I was just wondering how to clean a samsung rv510 laptop screen without damaging it? i dont have any special cleaning stuff.


Hi x_20_kelly_0,

For cleaning laptop/mobile phone screens all you need is an extra soft cloth which would not have result in any scratches on your screen , when you rub the cloth on the screen for cleaning it.

Now you would be wondering as to where can you get such cloth.

I would give you a hint.

Try buying a scratch guard for mobile phone and you would get a small cloth with it for free , you can use that cloth to clean your laptop screen and you can see the result for yourself, your screen would look as if it's all new again.

Hope this helps..:) Your feed back would be appreciated.

I have a TEKA LS1000I with no manual! Ive been trying different combinations for about a month but I have no idea if its actually cleaning clothes of just making them wet! Does anybody know where I can...


Sr/ Mam Washing machines agitate clothes in water and using an additive to the water like laundry detergent will defiantly clean your cloths, on the wash cycle if you look into the cleaning area and the clothes have moved around inside your machine is probably agitating, if the water is drained and there is no soap residue on your clothes than your clothes are as clean as your detergent can get them and your machine is working properly. they will be damp and heavy when you remove them this is where the close dryer comes into affect, use some bounce fabric softener this works well for this proses

Washer wont fill with water/clothes dont get clean


Actually the machine is working like it is designed. When the correct soap is used, these machines clean clothes better than the old style. Try using a major brand of soap like Tide, Bold, or Cheer. Make sure it has the HE design on the bottle. This means that it is made just for the new High Efficiency machines. Also make sure you don't use to much. Read the directions. If this is done correctly, I'm sure you will find that it does clean great. I was like you when I first saw one of these new machines. "These is no way you can clean dirty and I mean dirty clothes without enough water to cover them. Well since, I have became a believer. They have put a lot of thought into designing these things. They had to of, for them to clean as good as they do.

Seems to take picture then turns off, and can`t review


This is just a guess from out in left field but are you sure your battery(ies) is charged up -and that it hasn't lived out its lifespan? Also clean any battery contacts with a clean, lint-free soft cloth or a clean pencil eraser followed by the cloth.


If you use AA batteries and they have leaked, you will need to clean the electrical contacts in the camera. Use a clean, lint-free cloth, dampened only with water- you don't want moisture getting into the camera. Use your finger and the damp cloth to clean ayway the corrosion. You may need to rinse and repeat with the cloth a few times. Then use a dry cloth on the contacts. Leave the battery compartment open for an hour then try new batteries.

hi there,

there are 2 reason for not getting clothes clean:

1) water supply
if you don't have enough incoming water, the clothes will not get clean and you'll have detergent residue left on your clothes
2) detergent
you have to use the He detergent for the best results
