SOURCE: Black particles in clothes after using a top loading samsung fully automatic washing machine

You said these particles stick to the clothes, do they come off and then leave a stain? It may be grease or oil coming from a leaking drum bearing seal.
If it is, This is a major repair and not one for DIY.

the unit is only 18 nmohths old then what you need to do is contact the manufacture and explain to them what is happening and if they are having simuary isssues with that particular moidel number. Possibly they are and you may be able to have it repaired on their dime! 18 months is not that long for a washer to start having these problems if you have not abused the unit by overloading the washer or over filling it with soap. Good Luck

I have a white dot on my lcd computer screen when the screen is black but with the screen on other colour the dot is not significant . I just wonder what the consequence of this dot is?


Basically the white dot is a dead pixel, this is common with LCD screens. You have nothing much to worry about unless the screen develops more dead pixels which could lead to a screen replacement although its highly unlikely.

No power electricty is going into machine but it has locked completely.

if you have no power going into the machine check your electrical breaker box to see if one of the breakers has tripped if this is a front load machine usually if the door locks up you can remove the lower panel on the very front bottom of the machine and reach up along the right side or if your door lock is oppistie on the left there is a small cord that you can pull to open the door to get at your clothes assure first that you have power going from the plug into your machine and as always if you are not used to doing electrical testing I would ask you to call a technician. It is always better to be safe when dealing with electricty if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick

Every time i try to turn my hotpoint wt960 washing machine on it blows the main fuse i have changed the fuse in the plug and tried a diffrent socket

Sounds like you have eliminated a few possible sources of the problem, but we have to dig deeper--

Do you have some way of checking for shorts and continuity?-- Like an Ohm meter?- or a continuity checker?

YOu will need to remove the control panel, and check for a short either on the cord, or inside the control panel.
Inside the panel, the 3 wires from the power cord, attach-- Can you see the Green and then the WHite and black leads?
With the Plug out of the wall, You should get infinite ohms between the White wire and ground, as well as the Black wire and ground-- A low ohms reading indicates a short to ground-- Now we have to find that short.

Can you trace the circuit thru from Black wire, thru the controls, back to the white wire-- and can you check for shorts at points along the way?

Let me know what you find, and we'll help you further.

I have a 5E error on the diplay of my washing machine with the clothes locked inside and with no solution whatsoever .... Help Please

If its a samsung model, which I am assuming it is as I have just had the same error code, it means you need to clean your debris filter.

If its a samsung washing clean the debris filter you need to open the panel which is located on the front of the washing machine on the bottom right (you will need a coin or a key to do this) When you do you will see a large black plastic screw on the left and a small white plastic screw on the right.

The 1st thing you need to do is pull out the white screw (this is the emergency drain hose) have a bowl or bucket ready (the hose doesnt reach that far) and pull of the white knob (i had to kind of twist and pull, a little harder than i thought)

After you have drained the water you can now clean the debris filter (the large black screw) Have some towels or another bowl or bucket ready underneath as more water will drain. When all gone you can twist off the black screw and remove anything blocking (I had a coin and a plastic wrapper and some tooth picks. No more error message.

Good Luck!

Got a hotpoint washing machine aquarius WT540 think catch is broken how can i open the door

If the catch is broken you are going to need to get at it from inside to release it.

This is usually best done by taking the top or back off and reaching in to release the lock.

Make sure you disconnect the electricty and water before trying this.

Washing machine powered on and went dead suddenly after less than a minute. no lights, no sound, nothing ever again.

you have blown the fuse inside the control panel remove the top panel which has all the buttons on it (should just be a couple of screws on the back) then take out the fuse and check if it is blown then go and buy the exact same fuse and you should be right

White dots appeare on my Samsung LCD screan

Sounds like your panel is on its last legs so to speak. 
Might be time to look into replacing the panel. Running a high contrast can lead to a shorter panel life which may cause the occurence of dead pixels.
