If you remove the drain hose from sink, drop it down low into a bucket,this will gravity drain and allow you to open the door to remove clothes, clunking could be object stuck in the drum or the pump even,at worst Drum bearing failure..Good luck

My maytag washer does not spin fast enough to get the water out of the clothes. Please advise


Randall, the high speed spin failure can be caused by a number of issues. I would suggest starting the machine without any clothes in it. Once it has filled, make sure the door lock light is on and that the door is, in fact, locked. If the light is not on, or if the door is not actually locked, either the door lock assembly or the control panel is at fault.

If the light is on and the door is locked, stop the wash cycle and start a drain and spin cycle to see if all of the water is pumped out of the drum. All water should be pumped out within 10-15 seconds. If excess water is in the drum, the high speed spin will not start.

Aafter washing my clothes comes out with black marks on clothes and in drum


Check to see if there is old soap residue trapped in the linning of the door seal. Also a run through with a water softner like Calgon can help.

Forgot to put the lint trap back into LG Ventless Dryer DLEC855W. Clothing might have gotten stuck inside. Dryer now making grinding noise and drum is moving slowly. Is it time to call a repairman?


The filter simply allows the dryer air to pass through and trap the lint so it will not collect in the exit tube or on the outer vent parts. If anything, the clothes inside the bin will just spin around and be there when you finish. The noise inside the dryer could be from something that was in the pant or shirt pocket and was floating around.

My GE Adora side by side makes ice but the water dispenser barely dispenses.


Did you recently move the fridge? One possibility is that the supply line in the back of the fridge is kinked. Usually it is coiled so you can move the fridge out and back damage but if it gets kinked, it would limit the water supply like a hose does when kinked. Also, the supply line is usually tapped from under the sink. Make sure the valve that supplies the line (usually 1/4 inch line) is fully opened. If that fails to help, then you're back to the solenoid valve for water that is not fully opening. Should give a solid clunk when actuated. G

Clunking banging noise


It may be something stuck in the drum, ie a bra wire, which would have extra weight on it whilst the clothes are wet. If this is the case, it will need looking at sooner, rather than later, as it will just be causing further internal damage

Upon opening the door after the washer beeped finished, I went to remove the clothes and they were still very wet. I set the dial to "Spin" to remove more water before placing in dryer. The...


the very first thing you have to do is to open door, put hand inside washer inner tub and move tub up and down to see if there is "play" in the bearings. if inner tub moves your main bearing is bad dragging and forcing the motor controller to think there is a "unbalance" condition. also make sure you clean the water pump screen. take small round door at the lower right side and remove the screen to clean. then put it back and retest washer. if that dont work then you may have a fulty unbalance switch or motor controller.

good luck to you.

My frididaire front load washer is making a loud knocking sound as it goes through the cycle. Also the metal "basket" in which the clothing is places seems to be "off its track" and loose. i can move it...


It sounds like the shocks for the drum are broken. The shocks absorb the wobbling of the drum due to unbalanced loads, etc. Remove the lower front panel (with machine unplugged) and look towards the back on each side and see if you see broken or hanging shocks. The panel has 2 screws I think and should come right off.
Also, if you can open the door and lifting up on the drum inside the machine and moving it around and hear a clunking sound, the drum bearings may be bad. Give that a try and see what you find.

Washer will not spin out water but turns during wash cycle


Try cleaning out the trap. It is located under the door and can be accessed be removing three screws at the base in the very front of the washer. The trap is white and screws to open. Watch out though, because if the washer is full of water it will come spilling out! With the trap removed, you should also use your finger to feel the opening of the pump to the side. I found a few bobby pins in my pump, and once they were removed it worked again!.

LG DRYER MAKING CLUNKING NOISE


Clunking could be from bad rollers or cracked drum. Check the drum seam for a crack. If its the rollers you can do the same thing as drum replacement only order the rollers. I got my parts from Sears parts. The below is for a 2514 but should be close for yours.


Ordered drum from Sears parts. 3045EL1002D
Cost of 85$ + 15 to ship. It came in 5 days.

Here is how to do it on a DLE2514W. Takes about an hour. I only used a phillips screw

driver. Take your time and look over the situation. I hope that I rememberd

everything. Good luck.

CLUNKING NOISE - SOMETHING TRAPPED BETWEEN INNER & OUTER DRUMS?


Yes, there is something trapped between the inner and outer drum, you could try removing the sump hose from the bottom of the drum, this will give you more room to fish about than possibly removing the heater. If you do remove the heater, you may not get it back in, then you will have to fit a new one.
The sump hose is the large hose fastened to the bottom of the outer tub.
