This will be due to one of three causes.

  1. You are using an incompatible wash powder for your machine. If you're in India (the WM A 0716 was an India-only model) then some of the cheapest domestic brands are really poor quality and some of the established major brands are counterfeit products.
  2. Most powders contain some insoluble components which should be rinsed out, so the rinse cycles are not working correctly. This can happen if the wash load is too big for the machine and fails to allow space for the rinse water to circulate, otherwise it's likely a machine fault.
  3. The wash cycle is too cold. You have either selected too low a temperature or the machine has a failed heating element.
If the machine is faulty then you will need to contact Siemens for repair.

How to fix leak from soap dispensor


I assume you have water coming out of the dispenser and running down the front of the machine. You probably have a build up of soap powder in the water inlet and it is restricting the flow and backing up.
Soap powder is only partially soluble in cold water and a residue of undissolved powder builds up over time, one of the reasons I use a liquid detergent. Remove the dispenser tray, it should pull out fairly easily with just a little resistance. Try and clear any blockages, hot water is best as it dissolves better. Clean the tray you have removed and re-assemble.

Water coming out of soap tray and running down the front of the machine


Your soap tray and/or inlet is probably blocked with undissolved powder. Remove the tray and clean it. Also clean the inlet tube from the tray into the washing machine with hot water.
I, personally don't like soap powder and use a liquid or tablets because washers nowadays tend to use cold water only so doesn't fully dissolve the powder. Also the outlet to drain gets blocked along with the underground pipe to the mains sewage.

My washer will only dislove the powder saop on warm or hot cycle and now it won't let any water in to the tub at all why


You MUST use "HE" (High Efficiency-Low Suds) type detergent--but to use the correct amount.
Nearly all brands of "HE" detergent have incorrect instructions.

The correct amount is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash load

HE 2X (double concentrated) : (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X (triple concentrated): (1) Teaspoon

I bought the Samsung 8 kg Top Loader (Model: WA80V3WIP) a few weeks ago. I only use cold water and bought the yellow packet of Sunlight washing powder, which specifically says on the packet that it works...


As with any top-loader, the soap drawer will deposit the entire soap load on one spot within the first few seconds of water fill. When the water starts running through the soap drawer, the brakes on the drum are released, so you can manually rotate the drum to disperse the soap over the load surface, thus eliminating the concentrated spots. Also, you may save the duvet, as the white marks are most probably dried soap powder which can be removed with a damp cloth wiped over the area.

Using powder 1/2 recommend amount. there is a continual build up of powder in the dispensing cavity behind drawer. how do I prevent this am having to clean with toothbrush daily


Hi

When you start a cycle, does the machine take a long time for it to fill up with water.

If so, you have a faulty inlet valve. There is a rubber diaphram inside the valve which tends to tear over time.When this happens the water just trickles in. Therefore the soap/powder is not dissolved into the tub thouroughly.

Some powders also dissolve less than others, and using the machine on hot water cycle helps to dissolve the soap faster.

Soap doesn't come out of clothes when I wash them on cold.


Use LIQUID soap instead. Powder does NOT dissolve fully in cold water, and may in fact BURN your clothing and ruin the pump and valves with its residue

Is powder or liqued detergent better for front


They are trying to make money off you!!!!!!! LIQUID!!!! Dont ever!!! use powder soap in your front loader. Powder soap doesnt dissolve all the way and then gets into the bearings of the washer and eats them away! This caused about a 450 dollar repair for your repairman. Never use powder soap.

Suds residue left on clothes just washed


ck drain hose end of drain hose should be at least 36 ins from floor also be sure drain hose fits loosely in drain water may be siphoning out resulting low water level to wash/rinse ..also recommend using liquid detergent dry doesn't dissolve good in cold water and even though it may be recommended for front load the lower water levels used may not be enough to dissolve it properly
