Unfortunately, this is a common problem with front load style washers. Now...if you pull the rubber boot back where it meets the wash tub there should be several small holes that allow any residual water to drain back into the wash tub. If these holes become clogged with lint and/or debris water will accumulate and mildew. The best advice I can give you when it comes to this type of washer is to become diligent about ensuring nothing gets caught in the the seam of the rubber boot. Routinely inspect this area after each wash for loose items like socks and underwear. In addition, clean this area periodically. What I often recommemd to people is to wait until you get ready to do a load of towels and wash cloths. Clean this area with a dirty towel or wash rag and throw it into the wash to be cleaned. This way you don't have to worry about having any old rags lying around. If you are not in the habit of using hot water settings you should also run a cleaning cycle about once a week on the hottest setting available. Pour a small amount of bleach into the soap dispenser and run the unit with nothing in it. This will help in killing any bacteria. Some of the newer models have now been equipped with a "Clean" cycle just for this purpose. Due to the design of these washers they become breeding grounds for mildew because the wash tubs are dark and if you leave the door closed when not in use it seals out any air that could allow the tub to dry out. When you are not using the washer leave the door slightly ajar to allow the tub to air out. I hope you find this information is helpful. Post back with comments and let me know if this works for you, or if I need to give you better advice.

I have just rented an apartment with a Haier Front Load Clothes Washer & Dryer Combo XQG65-11SU. It says we need to clean the lint trap after every use. We can't access the lint trap. How do we...


Lint traps are usually inside the front door housing.check for spring loaded latch.it is never necessary to actually dismantle any major part on dryers otherwise it would not be user friendly.go online if you don't have the manual and check on the basic maintenance of the dryer.if it is a condenser dryer you might want to look at the bottom filter which is usually behind the kick plate...again easily accessed.

Instructions

Dryer Does Not Turn On
1

Ensure that the dryer's power supply cord is firmly plugged into an electrical outlet.
2

Inspect the structure's fuse box for a tripped fuse. Each fuse is assigned a single "On/Off" switch. If any fuse switch is in the "Off" position, flip that switch to the "On" position. If the problem persists, contact a professional electrician.

3

Press the "Start/Stop" button on the left side of the dryer's control panel.
4

Close the dryer door firmly so that the door clicks into place. The dryer will not operate if the door is not shut.
Lint Filter
5

Clean the lint filter. Twist the program selector knob on the control panel to the "Off" position, then open the dryer door. Pull the lint filter out of the dryer. The lint filter is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, and is inserted vertically into the dryer. Gently stroke your hand over the filter to clear the lint, then reinsert the filter and close the door.
6

Turn the dryer off and allow at least 30 minutes for the dryer to cool, as excessive heat can cause a drying program malfunction.
7

Increase the ventilation of the room the dryer is located in, such as by opening a door or window. Excessive heat will cause the dryer to automatically turn off until it cools as a safety measure. Increasing the ventilation will help keep the dryer cool.
Clothing Not Fully Dry
8

Clean the moisture sensor. Open the dryer door to access the moisture sensor. The black-colored sensor consists of two bars, and is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, to the left of the lint filter. The sensor should be cleaned with a clean cloth and white vinegar once per month.
9

Clean the lint filter. Twist the program selector knob on the control panel to the "Off" position, then open the dryer door. Pull out the lint filter. The lint filter is located at the front of the dryer's tumbler, and is inserted vertically into the dryer. Gently stroke your hand over the filter to clear the lint, then insert the filter back into the dryer and close the door.
10

Spin the laundry at a higher spin speed in the washing machine before placing the laundry into the dryer to reduce the moisture content.
11

Turn the dryer off and allow at least 30 minutes to pass for the dryer to cool, as excessive heat can cause a drying program malfunction.

Where is the lint trap?


On the bottom right of the machine, with a coin trap door. Twist the knob left (on the inside of the door) and pull out towards you. Make sure you lay a towel down beneath your machine and the floor because water will come out with the knob.

How do u lift the top of the dryer so i can get in the drum of the dryer


Generally in the older dryers, the top has hinges in the back, that allow you to flip it up. To keep it from opening, there are two catches on the front base panel (about 2 inches in from each corner) and two screws under the lint trap door. First, disconnect electrical power cord, precautionary. Then remove the two screws under the lint trap door, that attach the top to the lint trap. (The next step exploits the slight flexibility of the dryer chasis.) Slide the top piece forward of the base (away from the back side) about a half inch, then lift the front edge of the top piece. (Sliding forward should allow you to clear the catches that hold the top down.) You're in....
