If you are using "soap powder" in your machine then you have soap buildup under the agitator and likely under the wash basket also. If you will post the model number that is on your machine, I will be able to tell you how to remove the agitator and basket so you will be able to clean out any buildup.

Hello Sir Tommis,

I understand that you are having a problem with your washing machine. When you wash clothes they come out with a white powder like substance on them. This white powder substance is the powder laundry soap that you are using.

This is generally caused by adding to much soap and clothes to the washing machine. The soap is not getting dissolved and the clothes do not have enough room to agitate in the machine. Try to put 3/4 of the amount of clothes in the washer with the same amount of soap and see if the clothes come out with the same powder like substance on them.

The clothes that currently have the soap on them will have to be hand washed with a scrub brush in oder to get the material off of them as running them though the washer will not remove the soaked in soap.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

I have model 110.60832990 and the dryer is on the drum is turning, the heat is on but the clothes are not drying.


Check the air outlet and see it is not clogged with dirt/flint. Clean the air filter mesh located at the air outlet of flint. This blocks the free flow of air and thus do not dry the clothes. Drying will take place when the air inside has free flow. Before putting clothes in the dryer EVERYTIME this filter must be cleaned OR after every drying cycle.

When I print in colour there is a white streak from top to bottom about 5 cm from the left hand side


- remove all cartridges
- clean all leaked powder on the cartrtidges and inside the 4 cartridge compartiments with a vacuum cleaner
(don't touch the powdered roll on the cartridge!)

- deep inside the printer you will see a glass-strip. You have to clean this strip carefully. Because of powder, that has leaked from the cartridges, the laser-beam is dimmed. This causes the white streak you mentioned!

White marks on my clothes.


Are you using TOO much powder? And is the machine set to the correct rinse tempature? You mention white stuff, does it look like undissolved washing powder? Or fabric softner? Possibly try liquid detergent and see if the problem continues. And follow the recommended amounts of detergent for each wash load, and the tempature settings. And of course the water levels. All of the above are crucial to insure you get maximum preformance and utility out of your machine, with the results you expect. Let us know what you find. Kindest Regards, Slats.

White powder coming from dehumidifer.


Commercially available cool mist humidifiers sonicate water in order to create a fine mist. In other words, intense vibration liberates millions of tiny droplets of water from the reservoir. This water contains all of the salts of the original tap water. Consequently, over time, you will begin noticing that a fine white powder covers EVERYTHING in the room. This is the same stuff that is trapped in the reservoir of a warm mist humidifier.
its harmful but very annoying !

please rate me

WATER LEAKING FROM POWDER TRAY AND AROUND DOOR


There is a ball return valve that wants cleaning. Disconnect the appliance from water and mains. Turn machine on its side and look underneath. At the bottom of the white plastic drum you should see a black rubber hose about the size of a mug fastened by a hose clip. Remove hose clip and extract the hose from the drum and look inside. You should see a white plastic cone about the size of a paper cup with a plastic ball inside, remove and clean of any debris and replace. Be careful when reattaching the black how to the drum or you will get a flood if not properly attached.
Hopefuly that will solve your problem.
