There should be a small plate to the front or back at the base that you open and you will be surprised what will come out. you might need to remove the lint trap and it will be gunged up with soap, fabric conditioner, grease it will need washing and in future probably once twice a year use a washing machine cleaner that you use as if you have a load and turn machine on. hope this will help i am not a technician just a housewife who have had this problem and was told to do this and it worked.

Hi can too much potassium cause fluid rention

go google and type in ---potassium and fluid retention---
the first site up states ---it may also benefit heart health (9)
potassium appears to help reduce water retention in two ways, by decreasing sodium levels and increasing u*ine production (10)
bananas , avocados, and tomatoes are examples of foods high in potassium
there are numerous sites that deal with water retention and the affects of potassium
as for your husbands condition, it would be far better to discuss the ongoing swollen knee and ankle and to ask if the potassium would help reduce the condition or would other procedures such as icing the knee when it is hot help reduce the swelling
I mention this because following a knee replacement, there is a lot of swelling in the knee and the specialist demanded an ice pack be used to reduce the heat ( the area around the knee gets hot during the healing process) and reduce the swelling

Hi I'm a 45 year old male. I have good skin. Only a slight wrinkle at the eyes. Most people tell me I pass for a man in his 30's. I do have bags under my eyes. A hereditary trait. What can I use to keep...

Puffiness under the eyes can be caused from fluid retention. To reduce fluid retention be sure to drink plenty of water. Fluid retention occurs when the body has too much salt and not enough water to flush it out. Try to spend most of your sleeping hours sleeping on your back. You can apply a cool, soothing substance to your eyes for 5 minutes to reduce fluid retention. Try cucumber slices; damp, chilled tea bags; or a damp, cold cloth.

I also recommend our soothing collagen mask. You can place the unopened package in the refrigerator for an added bonus. Use the mask when you have at least 15 minutes to spare. Besides collagen, the mask also has other moisturizing agents such as CoQ10. The mask sells for $8.88.

hi the door lock will open providing the water is below a max level. Drum temp is lower than 40 degrees. drum has to stationery. blockages in the draining can cause some water retention to stop unlocking of the door also can retain hot water from the wash with possibility of higher than 40c temp at the end. you should here 2 clicks at the end to unlock the door if the machine is switched off it will unlock after 4 min by a failsafe device. Occaisionally i have known the machine to have hot and cold water pipes reversed causing all the rinses to be in hot water this would also stop the door opening. finally the door lock can be faulty or wiring to itand rarer the electronic itself.hope this helps

Soap drawer is filled with water

Our 2 year old washer just started seeing this problem. After removing the detergent dispenser drawer from the washer, cleaning it and cleaning the slot it came from we stopped seeing water retention.

I have a leaking flow valve (part#8182862) on my whirlpool duet washer model#GHW9300PW4. I have a replacement valve, and have the existing valve exposed and disconnected on the interior of the washer...

The retention pin is actually a Torx screw, requiring a #T20 size torx screwdriver. Once removed the flow valve assembly simply slides sideways to be free from its mounting on the chassis.

Water gets drained immediately without washing

When error message 4E is displayed, you should clean the water hose mesh filter. To do this:

1. Turn off the water source to the washing machine.
2. Unscrew the hose from the back of the washing machine.
3. With a pair of pliers, gently pull out the mesh filter from the end of the hose and rinse it under water until clean. Also clean the inside and outside of the threaded connector.
4. Push the filter back into place.
5. Screw the hose back onto the washing machine.
6. Turn on the faucet and make sure the connections are watertight.

Also, please check the following:
• Make sure the source water faucet is turned on.
• Check the water pressure.

Stale smell on crockery after wash

Most commonly, this relates to sulfides or other impurities in the water itself, but may also be caused by a buildup of food soil within the washer. Smell a clean glass of water. Does it smell stale also? If no, clean the screens and wash water sump/tank within the machine.
You can also clean the inside of the machine by using a commercial grade dish machine detergent and increasing water temp if possible.
If the water smells stale, consult a local water expert for guidance in resolving
