Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I think you need a manual in English! Unfortunately this forum does not supply any type of manual, installation instructions or schematic diagram direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Good luck,
John C.

Why does my GE washer turn off during a cycle?


Hi,
I purchased a 4.8 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer with Steam in Metallic Carbon, ENERGY STAR.
I had issues when I used the machine for the first time. I started by loading some clothes and then the detergent, bleach and softener into the respective dispensers. I used the smart dispenser for the detergent, there are 2 detergent dispensers. Then I waited and ended up with water and a machine that would not spin .I kept getting the error message " Sensing " and it made light clicking sounds but was told that this was normal. I then waited 40 minutes and still no improvement. clothes stayed in the same spot.. nothing was happening but the Sensing Scroll Message.. I had to push the power button to stop it. I then pushed start but I still kept getting the error message scroll " Sensing "
I started over by setting it to drain & spin. It worked and my clothes got spun finally. Since I kept getting the sensor message and that is all it would say is " Sensing" .... I decided to try something else.
I powered it off and started a new load.
Next Load Trial:
I added soap to the detergent dispenser " Not the detergent smart dispense. Then i pushed the control lock button and last I hit the start button and whoala It works now.
Try getting familiar with your washer. do some light loads until you figure it out. It will eventually get where you need it to ,just be patient. Now I wash loads easy as pie.. I hope this helped you out with your problem. ;) . I am still learning mine and will post future issues and fixes if I come across any. Thank You.

Clothes not clean after washing


Were the settings appropriate for the clothing?
The settings on the machine should be set properly for the load. Different fabric types require different wash/rinse temperatures, spin speeds, and wash times. Always follow the instructions printed on the fabric care label. The soil level needs to be set in accordance with the load type. Heavily soiled clothing will not come clean with a light soil level setting.
Was the proper detergent used?
If too much detergent is used, or non-HE detergent is used, the machine will not wash properly. Too many suds present during a wash decreases tumbling action and will not rinse out well. Furthermore, detergent residue built up in the machine over time will deposit extra detergent on clothes and deposit soil back into clothing.

Was the washer overloaded? If the machine is overloaded, the machine will not wash and rinse properly. When the washer is overloaded, the clothes have no room to tumble, and the cleaning performance of the washer is reduced. In addition, when the clothes are packed tightly inside the drum the detergent and water will not distribute evenly throughout the items.

Front loaders require regular maintenance to ensure optimum performance. If this maintenance is not followed, residue can accumulate in the drum resulting in detergent and soil being deposited back into clothing. This can also lead to odor and other issues. Perform the required maintenance regularly (once or twice a month).

Washer will not spin clothes dry...full of water and wont work. f-21 keeps flashing.


your drain pump is clogged,So the first thing you need to do is,Push the start button again you well hear the machine come on you well hear the pump its trying to drain after about 30 seconds,It well shut off,so push button again watch the machine when the water goes down a certain level.The clothes well start to spin. Now after they get done spinning,push the cancel button.you should be able to hear the door unlock,remove the clothes.Now put Draino Max gel or Rooto-Routor gel in tub of machine and let it set for about 1-2hrs.Now star cycle on heavy-duty wash hot water,it may take a couple of times but it well clean your machine don't mix any othe soaps or bleach during this time. then rinse machine out again to get rid of gel.see if this work for you,are machine does the same thing,its because of dog or cat hair,or something was in a pocket like tissue,or strings from clothes.thanks

My bosch does not always completely wring the clothes out at the end of the cycle causing me to have to put the clothes through another wash. Has anyone had this problem?


...at the end of the wash, I then set the dial to DRAIN, then press start.  I wait for a special drain cycle to run.  Then, I set the dial to SPIN, and wait for a special spin cycle to run.  The clothes are much dryer and spun out after this process.  I'm not happy with the washer, it came with my new condo.  BUT, I'm trying to learn how to use it.....

What does "IE" mean when it attempts spin cycle?


is it IE or LE please confirm it. if it is LE code the fixing procedure is given below This usually happens if you're washing on a delicate setting with a moderate load of clothes. Apparently, delicate also means very few items to wash. To clear the LE code - no need to unload the clothes:
1. Press the power button to turn the washer off.
2. Press the power button to turn the washer back on.
3. Cycle the spin cycle selection to 'no spin'.
4. Press start.
The washer should set to one minute, lock the doors, then drain out the excess water.
Once the 'End' cycle comes up, unplug the machine for several minutes.
Plug the washer back in, press the power button, then set the washer to 'normal' with 'low' spin setting.
Note that the only difference between the normal setting and delicate is the wash time and spin cycle speed. If you have a moderate to large load of delicates, use the normal setting on low spin cycle. The clothes really don't care. Also, make sure you're using 'HE' detergent - low suds. Regular degergent in a front load is not recommended.

Detergent in clothes


How much detergent are you using? I'm wondering if there is a residual amount of detergent left in the washer. Does it have a dispenser? If your washer has a dispenser for liquid detergent you could try pouring a small amount of really hot water into the dispenser to ty to clear it. Then try running a small empty cycle or two with plain cold water. Remember not to ever use more detergent than is recommended for your washer.


Thank you for using Fixya.

He4t - monthly bleach cleaning cycle


Washer Monthly Maintenance Procedure:
This cycle uses higher water volumes in combination with liquid chlorine bleach to thoroughly clean the inside of your washing machine.
  1. remove any clothing or items from washer
  2. CLOSE door (duh)
  3. open dispenser drawer and remove the detergent compartment and set aside. No laundry products will be added at this time. You will be required to add only liquid chlorine bleach at a later step.
  4. For Kenmore Elite HE products press a specific combo of buttons.
  • Select Rinse/Spin program
  • select low spin speed
  • select warm/cold water temp.
  • select 2nd rinse option
  • push the "end of cycle" signal button 4 times within 5 seconds to start the cycle
The machine will fill and run a short sensing cycle. This will take about 3 minutes.

Step 5
  1. The washer will provide 4 short tones. Check the: ESTIMATED TIME REMAINING display for the codes indicated below:
  • if "Ab" (add bleach) displayed in the estimated time remaining window (you'll hear 4 short tones) proceed to Step 6.
  • if "rL" (remove load) displayed in the Estimated Time Remaining window an error tone will sound. The door will unlock.
    -open the door and remove the items from the washer.
    -continue the cycle by pressing the START button.

    NOTE: The water in the unit will dispense for a moment, then the door will unlock, lock again, and then the cycle will continue with another check for items in the washer.

    The machine will fill and run a short cycle to determine whether any items have been left in the washer. This will take approx 3 minutes.

    the washer will repeat Step 5 until it can determine that there are NO items n the washer and will display "Ab" (add bleach).
6. Add liquid chlorine bleach.
  • If using the maintenance procedure for the first time, open the dispenser drawer and immediately add 1 cup liquid chlorine bleach to the Main Wash detergent compartment. The liquid bleach should immediately flow out of the dispenser.
  • If doing a monthly maintenance procedure, open the dispenser drawer and immediately add 1/3 cup bleach to the Main Wash detergent compartment. The liquid chlorine bleach should immediately flow out of the dispenser.

    NOTES:
  • Water will be flowing into the dispenser drawer when the bleach is added ... this is normal.
  • Do not add any detergent to this cleaning cycle. Use of more than 1 cup of bleachw ill cause product damage over time.
7. Once the cleaning cycle has begun, allow the cycle to complete. An est cycle time will appear on the display.

8. After the cleaning cycle is complete, leave the door open, clightly to allow for better ventilation and drying of washer interior.

9. Replace the detergent compartment divider.
