Check the agitator. you should be able to, by hand, easily turn it in one direction without turning the tub while the other direction turns the tub also. If the tub does not turn in one direction with the agitator the you need a new clutch dog assembly or the whole agitator. Hope this helps. Good Luck

How do we clean with this machine .

Is this a front-load washer or top load?

Is the machine operating properly, or are your clothes getting a musty smell?

The musty smell has a few solutions, One may work but probably a combination of all will work best.

Immediately move wet clothes to the dryer, do not let them sit in the washer for a long time.
If your clothes smell, put mouthwash with your clothes directly in the tub during the wash cycle (this will not stain your clothes)
leave the door open when not in use (lets it dry out)
If the washer smells, use bleach and hot water in an empty cycle once in a while (kills just about every kind of bacteria or mold which may be causing the smell)
Use washing machine cleaner once in a while(can be found at your local grocery store isle next to detergent)
Dry your clothes completely, damp clothes can start to smell again.

If you are looking for a new washer, try to find a newer model that features a stainless steel tub with silver impregnation. The silver is a natural disinfectant.

My janome machine model 2001.doesnot work properly it thread is loose from down side during sewing ,sometimes work properly but some time while sewing it shows same problem i was cleaning with tooth brush...

I think you may have to careful clean everything and check you havn't dropped feed dogs or changed a setting. I don't really know what you mean by the foot getting stuck, but if the feed dogs ( moving part under the cloth) are down than the cloth can't move. Also, the pressure of the foot may be too high; this can also happen accidently while cleaning.
Get a manual ( and double check everything. Also, check there is no thread in the thread guides as this may have been your original problem. pull a thread towards to needle

Unplug your washing machine and then you will be able to get the door open and the clothes out. You may need to leave it off for awhile to get it to work but make sure you have a bucket ready to catch the water coming out.

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.

Paper jam, i have tryed every thing got new paper, didnt work...

Sounds like your machine needs new rollers.. pick up roller and feed rollers..

Or something is blocking the paper path?

Clean the machine

I would suggest removing the ink cartridge

get a lint free cloth, a can of air, some q-tips and flash light and a lint free cloth.

Open the machine and blow it out with a can of air,

Look in it with a flash ligth and clean with the cloth or q-tipw and a small drop of the alcohol.

Clean the rollers in there with the cloth a slight bit damp, you will probably see the cloth get dirty from this.

Blow with air, let it dry out a bit..
put the ink back in, start it up and try again.

I believe there is a button that will feed paper through. do that then go to your print driver and print a test page.

This is what I do with my ink jet printer and usually helps it. I have never replaced the rollers, but clean them once in a while..

I repair Laser Copiers and Printers.. I have no ideal where to get parts for an ink jet machine.. usually suggest to through them away as they as designed to be disposal..

I hope this helps..

Problem with my washer

A solution from the internet: Make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put in the powder's drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda. It should clean the machine and move out the bad smell. Another: I have a front loading machine also and am not willing to have to constantly clean out the machine -- the soap and fabric softeners you use are building up between the inner and outer drums (and on the drum itself sometimes). Because the machines door is so tightly sealed (to prevent water leakage) the smell from this buildup is awful. I finally found the solution. MAGGIE'S SOAP NUTS -- they are all natural (grow on trees) and will remove the grime from your drum and also clean your clothes (you won't even need fabric softener anymore). Stop using commercial detergents and fabric softeners and start using Maggie's Soap Nuts. They are not very cheap but they work great -- I have found that making a liquid out of the soap nuts and storing it in a bottle works better than putting them in the sack cloth they come with (because front loaders do not agitate constantly like regular machines, the cloth bag sits on the clothes and sometimes leaves a stain -- the liquid will not leave a stain. YOU WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM AND HAVE SOFTER CLOTHES TO BOOT (without fabric softener so you save some money there). They are also better for septic tanks, the environment and your health! I believe Whole Foods sells them and they are also on the internet at Note: Also go to -- they are going to buy these in bulk to cut the cost in half but don't have them yet. You should be able to buy them there soon. Note: Forgot to tell you to run some of this thru your machine with hot water before washing your clothing to clean out the buildup that is already in the machine
