replace the water inlet solenoid unit as there is a hole in the diaphragm that is allowing tap water to pass through and into the bowl

I have an Aquasmart W80T65C. After each load there is a small amount of water under the machine. The water is dripping off a black rubber elbow at right rear of the machine.


Hi - if you could try this - fill the machine with water and leave it overnite to see if there is any water on the floor.

Yes - then just tilt the machine on its back & find the leak.
No - then there is a small hole on the drain hose, this will be due to the movement of the bowl - rubs against something and over time springs a leak.

My washer has one on it now - just located the pin hole & wrapped duct tape around it - works fine for us.

MW511 top loader washing machine. 3rd & 4th LED lights are lit and beeping sound is heard. When Start/Pause id pressed, the above lights go out and Lid Locked lamp comes on. When Power button is...


The third and fourth lights from the left indicate a failed motor controller (error code 48) If this is the correct fault code you will have to replace the motor controller. However before that is done all the electrical components which can effect the controller must be checked as well...Best to call a tech...Good luck Nomess

Slow drip near back of lid


Hi there.this may be water dripping from the injector tube where the water actually enters the bowl.It is normal to drip for a short while after the machine has just been used but if it is a constant drip then you probably have a faulty inlet valve.Try this,turn off one of the taps & see if dripping stops.if not,turn off tha other tap & see if it stops.this will tell you which of the valves are leaking.You could just turn the taps off after use,that would save having to replace it.Hope that helped you.if not then give more detail if possible please.cheers!

Have Fisher & Paykel top loader. Error code


fault code 56 is a real code : bowl invalid check clutch in centre of bowl and pressure tube is not kinked,can also mean pressure tranducer on motor control board could be faulty, note check for obstruction between inner and outer bowl( missing a sock perhaps.?)

Samsung Washer,less than year old. Not every load and not every item but periodically something will come out with stains not previously on the item.


Hi,

This is common, if the machine does predominantly COLD washes.

Over a period of time, there is a build up of soap scum (washing powder/fabric softener etc) inside the machine, caused by using excess soap powder/detergent.

To recitfy this, fill the empty bowl (no clothes) with a solution of HOT water & CITRIC ACID (found in the baking isle of your grocery shop) on HI Water level. Set the machine to wash cycle, then drain.

Fill again with same solution, but leave solution inside the bowl overnight.

Drain next day, then follow with 1 single HOT wash (no clothes) on HI water level again.

The scum should be gone...

The hot flush should be done at least every 6 months, but this can be dramatically reduced if you use less soap powder (Samsung machines do not require as much powder, as do other machines)

I have a Samsung SW62ASP top load washing machine. I keep getting chunks of black flaky stuff turning up through my wash. I always empty the in bowl filter, is there another filter?


Hi there,

This is a common problem on washing machines, if you predominantly do cold washes.

Over a period of time, a washing machine will accumulate a buildup of Soap Scum (excess soap & softener residue) which can stick to the inside of the drum.

This black coloured soap scum occasionally breaks away from the drum, and attaches to the clothing fabric during the wash cycle.

You can rectify this, by doing the following:

Firstly, purchase a packet of CITRIC ACID from your local grocery store (usually found in the baking isle).

Do the following procedure before going to bed:

1) Do a HOT WASH without clothes (Hi water level, with HOT water) - allow machine to fill with hot water, then add the CITRIC ACID to the water. Allow the machine to complete a FULL wash cycle (i.e. allow machine to agitate for 30 mins or so, then drain).

2) Fill the machine again with the HOT water / CITRIC ACID solution, but this time allow it to sit in the bowl overnight (no cycle).

3) Next morning, set machine to spin & drain (i.e. to empty the solution)

4) Set machine to fill with FRESH HOT WATER ONLY (no citric acid), then set machine to spin & drain. This will flush all remaining residue left in the bowl.

Note: Soap scum residue is caused by using excess detergent/fabric softener. Hot Water flushing should be done every 6 months.

Contrary to what the detergent manufacturers state, you should follow Samsung's instructions by using HALF the recommended detergent.

Samsung machines prefer LOW SUDS, and you may find by reducing the amount of detergent used, you may even eliminate the buildup of soap scum.
