Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 2 year old Gorenji WA50140. For some reason when the washer gets to it's conditioning cycle - the drawer leaks conditioner and copious amounts of water...I have to leave a towel down on the floor when ever I use the machine...which is a lot as I have 4 year old and 3 month old baby. I have taken the drawer out several times to clean it etc but can see no obvious flaws or breaks in the casing. Can any one advise as I am rapidly running out of patience with the thing? Thanks!

Hi

The water leaking on floor can be a serious issue as this may cause the inside parts to malfunction or in some cases rusting of the body. To check where exactly it is leaking; inspect the leak while it is running. After the cycle is complete quickly turn off the power, lie down the machine on left/right side and check from where the water is leaking. If it is the hose or drain pump then check whether hose is connected firmly and is not cut. If it not the hose/pump inspect if the leak is on the drum corner or anywhere on the upper side of the drum. However, if it is leaking from the circumference then it is due to transmission seal. To replace the transmission seal you'll need to disassemble the washer and the drum assembly. Please post back in case of any issues. Hope this helps...

Duet washer leaks during use; rinse cycle?


Check the water pump hose connections and the water pumps housing bolts themselves could have loosened from vibration. more likely the hose connections on the pump itself though. Hope this helps.

Drawer not emptying


Suggest you pull the drawer right out and look for the hole in the bottom of the drawer where the conditioner is meant to drain out.

The top of this hole whould have a removable cover over it. What normally happens is that the inside of this cover gets choked with old conditioner.

Take the cover off and give the whole thing a really thorough clean with hot water and an old toothbrush.

I have exactly the same problem!


Try using the tub clean cycle and use a good dose of bleach or vinegear. Here is how to run the tub clean cycle.

To start the TUB CLEAN cycle:
1. Remove any clothing or items from the washer and close the door.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and add liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment.
NOTE: Do not add any detergent to the detergent compartments. Excessive suds may be produced and leak
from the washer.
3. Close the dispenser drawer slowly.
4. Power On and then press the Extra Rinse button for 3 seconds. (Prewash option will be selected.)
5. Press the Start/Pause button to start.
6. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open to dry around the washer door opening, door seal and
door glass.

Flashing Active Light and not taking fabric conditioner


1: The flashing wash light usually indicates a problem with the door latch while a flashing rinse/spin light usually indicates a problem with your inlet valve. 2: The cold water inlet has 2 independant outlets. The issue that you are describing indicates that one part of the cold water inlet is not opening to allow water to flow to the proper dispenser port.

Conditioner is not used in the wash cycle


I had the same problem with my Bosch Classixx 1200 Express.
It was fixed today & I now know what to do in the future if it happens. The water gets into the soap/ conditioner dispenser drawer via 2 pipes. One points to the main detergent compartment and the other to the pre-wash and conditioner compartments. The pipes become clogged with a type of mould. This meant that in my machine the water was bypassing the conditioner. I had already removed the drawer and cleaned it up and cleaned the jets above with an old tootbrush but it hadn't solved the problem. The repair guy used a cable tie (one of those that is quite firm & will lock) and pushed it up inside the bigger jets. This loosened the black gunge. Then ran water thru from start of the basic cycles and all is now OK
