Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Hi. i have my SHARP ESS1251FP automatic washing machine with anti-bacterial thing. just recently, i cannot control the water supply even if the water level is already okay/full. i think the water stopper isn't working now properly. that's why i have to turn off the water from time to time which supposedly isn't normal. what should i do to control and stop the water especially during spin drying? what's wrong with the machine?

The most common cause of machines stopping mid cycle is not draining. Your machine should have a filter behind the kick plate at the bottom.
If this is not the case please post back for further assistance.

SOURCE: M9503 washer dryer not draining before dry cycle.

Check these out:

  • If your washer spins but does not pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that is attached to the pump or even into the pump itself. It it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.
  • To remove the item from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Using a needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the stuck item through the port.
  • Check your washer for a frozen pulley. Remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely, it's frozen, replace it.
  • If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back after the spin cycle, your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub.
  • Also check for these problems:
  1. If the drain hose reaches more than 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut the excess.
  2. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

SOURCE: Washing machine has a seizure during the spin cycle.

Hi, I had the same problem. When i went on the frigidaire web site, i saw an F&Q section. Make sure all of the shipping packaging is out of the machine. I left on the the yellow "p" hooks and bolts. Once I took them out, it ran perfectly.
good luck!

I have a Maytag MAV7700 washer. It can fill with hot or cold water but when warm is selected it doesn't appropriately mix them to get a warm temperature even with the automatic temperature co


Hi etjacobsen.
As 'warm' is a mixture of 'hot' and 'cold' water a simple remedy to your problem might be to reduce the flow in the tap supplying the machine.
Good luck.

Hi, The last two washes i've just done on my Hotpoint WD72, the washing has gone full cycle but has come out smelling damp. Any ideas? I've had it since 2005 when it was new.


This will potentially sound odd, but run the 90 degree cycle with 3 dishwasher tablets in the drum. The smell is bacterial and probably the result of a build up of residue from biological soap powder (Which is simply bacteria that eat your stains). Dishwasher tablets are anti-bacterial and will kill the bugs making the smell

The washing smells of dirty water, have tried all sorts, but cannot get rid of the smell.


Several things to try:

Check the empty pump filter, that may be clogged with smelly debris
Ensure that the empty pipe is correctly inserted into the drain pipe and that there is a trap on the drain that stops smells coming back
Finally (This may sound odd) with no clothing in the machine, throw 3 dishwasher tablets in the drum and run it through the hottest cycle the machine can run. Smells can often be bacterial caused by biological washing powder which builds up bugs in the machine. Dishwasher tablets are anti-bacterial and will kill the bugs.

My Sharp Washing Machine ES-6515TS still drains even if the drain control is already closed and sometimes water goes out to the spinners tub.


PROBABLY THERE ARE THINGS THAT BLOCKING THE DRAIN, IT MIGHT BE COINS, PARTS OF CLOTHES, PANTY OR HANKY. SIMPLY OPEN THE BACKSIDE OF YOUR WASHING MACHINE, UNSCREW THE DRAIN LINE COUNTER CLOCK WISE TO OPEN THE VALVE FOR DRAIN. YOU'LL BE AMAZED OF THINGS PRESENT INSIDE THE DRAIN VALVE. AFTER THAT IT WILL BE OK FOR YEARS. I BROKE MY SPIN DRY MOTOR AND RUBBER BELOUSE, FUSE 3X. SHARP TECHNICIAN CAN'T FIND THE PROBLEM WHICH I DID AFTER 5 YEARS. I HOPE IT WILL BE HELPFUL TO YOU.---ROMMEL OF MANILA PHILIPPINES.---rtlagasac@hotmail.com

What is the F20 error code?


F-20 error code in Whirlpool Duet Sport washing machine is indication of inadequate water supply. Check both hot and cold water supply lines to make sure machine gets enough water intake. If you do not have a hot water supply to the machine you can only run it with the cold temperature setting. This machine does not have an internal water heater and relies on the hot water supply from the house water heater.
