Brovos Maytag Showing a Error F1 is this an easy fix?

The code is caused by a water sensor. You can temporarily just dump about a half gallon of water into the tub before adding the clothes, and then have another half gallon for mid cycle. This stops the code from popping up. Try the half gallon thing and you will see.

I would try to run a few loads of towels with just water (no detergent or anything) to try and flush out any excess detergent residue you may have. I don't know if you are able to set your own water level on this machine, but if you are, I would just run an empty load or two.

Hope this helps...

My FP washing machine has starting leaving brown sludgy marks on my clothes. Do I need to descale the machine? Im in New Zealand and the water isnt particularly hard. Thanks for your time, Emma

I'm guessing you use fabric softer....Get some finish dishwashing powder and put a wash on with high water level with no cloths in it. let it do it's normal wash but before it drains any water out, pause the wash let it soak over night. next day unpause it and let it finish. Repeat if needed and do the same thing again with out any dishwashing powder in it to make sure it rinses all the soap out.
The black sludge is cause by using fabric softener. The costic in the finish powder will eat in to the sludge and soften it. If its really baked on it my need to soak for longer, more powder or it may need to be stripper and cleaned.

Clothes stink after washed in lg front loading machine

You may have already found a solution, but I had this exact same problem. I ran the tub clean cycle with bleach and then switched to a powder HE detergent. I found some other posts that said that liquid HE detergent has some thing in it that causes that smell and the tub build up (not sure what?). I was hesitant that that could really make a difference but it has. It has only been a week, but so far everything smells great. Definitely worth a try.

GE Washing Machine (model # GUSR2LOOT) drain problem

Check for a blockage in the water pump. If it does not drain first it does not spin. Check for power to the drain pump motor.If no pump blockage check the lid switch for continuity. No continuity, replace the lid switch.

I have had aqarius a hotpoint aqarius 1000 wm62p

It has a wide variety of wash programmes for white cotton, colourfast cotton, polyester, non-colourfast cotton, wool blends and wool itself. These standard programmes take from an hour and a quarter to three-quarters of an hour to complete.
There is also a quick wash programme lasting just under half an hour for lightly soiled items and a pre wash soak for heavily soiled items. The machine has four buttons providing extra facilities that can be set independently of the main wash programmes to give you a more comprehensive range of settings.
There is a rinse hold button, which I find extremely useful. When set this holds the clothes in the final rinse water until you are ready to unload the machine. You then release the button, let the machine go through the final spin and then you can unload the machine. It means that you don’t leave damp washing in the machine for the time between the cycle finishing and you unloading the machine, which would make for very creased clothes. There is also a button to depress if you want to use the super rinse facility. This merely increases the volume of water in each rinse so that the clothes are rinsed more fully. I have never used this particular facility, as the ordinary rinses are fine for my needs.
The next button allows for a slow spin. I find that this one is really useful for the items that I need to iron as it means that they don’t come out of the washing machine as creased as they normally would on a faster spin. The only problem with this is of course that the clothes are not as dry as they would otherwise have been. The final button is used to set the economy wash feature. This means that the washing machine’s own heating system is not used and the wash is done with the water at the temperature entering the machine from your hot and cold water tanks. This of course means a cooler wash so it’s only suitable for lightly soiled items.
The door remains locked during the wash programmes so that it cannot be opened accidentally and it can be locked when not in use too if you have small children who might get into mischief! The other big selling point for this particular model is that it gauges the size of the load and uses the correct amount of water needed eliminating the need for the half-wash programme. This also means that it is both water and energy efficient

Water not spinning out of clothes

You have a clogged drain pump or the hose between the tub and drain pump is clogged. There is a possibility that your model has a plastic cup inside of the pump inlet hose designed to keep objects and lint from getting to the pump. You can find this out by squeezing that hose and see if it feels hard. If that's the case you will need to remove the hose from the tub clamp side to pull the cup out and clean it out. Then the machine should function normally.

Too much water

Most likely your water pump is blocked. I don't know where to find a parts brake down for this, as this model is not listed over here across the pond, but from the photo I found it appears that there may be an access door to a filter on the lower right side of the machine.

Check your drain pump, or drain line for obstructions. The number one cause of insufficient drainage in this model washer is debris building up inside the clean out trap on the drain pump. The following link explains how:

Make sure you check all the drain lines as well. Another common thing that can cause slow drain issues are small articles of clothing getting caught in the drain hose that is attached to the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the pump. It has happened to me on occasion to find socks, underwear and wash cloths lodged in this area. You can usually squeeze the hose to determine if there is anything blocking it. NOTE: In some models, there is a ball valve in the upper most portion of this drain line where it attaches to the wash tub. This is supposed to be there.

If anything has been lodged in the pump impeller for significant periods of time, this can potentially cause damage to the impeller and/or motor. This will affect pump performance. If clearing the pump and verifying that there are no clogs does not fix your problem, more than likely you have a drain pump that is beginning to fail.

If you find that you need to replace the pump, a replacement can be ordered on line at Just type in your complete model number and look for item number 10 (part #8181684) under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading. The next link explains how to replace the pump (if required):

I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

Gorenje WA1541 Washing machine

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Water Useage

if the machine works fine and runs through the programme without stopping, then never adjust anything on the machine to alter settings, this can cause more problems, computer control machines do the job very well under normal circumstances, the drum will hold sufficient water even if you can not see it for the clothes it holds, just to confirm this why not do a wash while no clothes so you will be reassured of the fact. i am a recently retired engineer of 20 years experience, and often have to reassure many people of this, don't worry of it works
