Question about Asko W6761 Front Load Washer

Asko W6884 Two things. My brand new front loader (3 days old) is leaking from the detergent dispenser on the final stages of the wash. The normal wash setting is showing 3.36minutes when it should be around 1 hour less than this. The load i am testing only has sheets in it - so no heavy towels.

Try a new box of detergent. Sometimes a batch of detergent just isn't right.

Your water pressure may be a liitle too high for the machine to handle. Try turning the water valves for the hot and cold water down a bit to reduce the pressure and try it again.

SOURCE: My problem is that the fabric softener doesn't

I know this may sound silly, but I have seen this problem solved on many occasions by cleaning the filter screen(s) in your cold water supply hose!
This is because the softener dispenser must fill with cold water (on top of your softener liquid) in order to start the siphoning off of the softener. If the cold water supply is restricted, the dispenser will not receive enough water begin the siphon effect.
Now before you tear things apart, try this test...
Begin a wash cycle by filling with HOT water, and observe (listen to) how fast the tub is filling for a few seconds... Now change the wash temperature to COLD, and notice the difference in water flow. If you detect a noticeable decrease in water flow... Clean the cold water hose screens!
How? Unplug the unit! Turn the cold water valve off, and remove the hose. (If you did the test above, you will easily feel which hose is the cold one.) Use a small brush and a squirt bottle to clear the screen inside the inlet to the washer, and also check the end of the hose where it attaches to the plumbing... some guys put a screen at both ends of the hose. Put it back together, turn the water on and CHECK for leaks. All OK? Plug 'er in and wash a load, and pat yourself on the back for saving yourself the price of a service call!
Hope this helps...

SOURCE: water leaks from my detergent dispenser from my

This is usually indicative of soemthing blocking the flow of water out of the soap tray, down the connecting pipe and in to the drum chamber.
The soap tray doesnt have any seals as water should just flow into the tray, wash out the soap / fabric softner, and then flow out the back of the tray and down the connecting pipe. When working correctly, there is no pressure or water back-up to cause the water to reach the front of the soap tray.

Take out the tray - your machine user manual will show you how, and check both the tray itself and the "hole" it slots in to for either a build up of solidified soap powder, or some other foreign object. If still leaking, remove the tray again and try to get your hand (a woman's or teenager's hand being smaller is best) down the large oulet at the back of the "hole" the tray slots in to to feel for a blockage.
Do you have young children ? A washing machine soap tray is a great place to hide things !

Occasionally, if the smaller pipes that deliver hot and cold water to the tray come adrift, this can spray water at the front of the machine. This water then has only one real way out - via the soap tray "hole". Most often this will be the cold water pipe as this has higher water pressure to cope with. The only way to check this is to take the top of the machine off.

If after all of the above it still leaks, you'll either need to dismantle the machine enough to see the back of the soap tray "hole", connecting pipe and drum chamber for a better look for problems, or call an engineer.

I have owned our washer for seven years Why doesn't the bleach dispenser empty?


is it a front loader or top loader? what is the model number? normally you have 3 or more water inlet valves 1 for cold water, 1 for hot water and one for either fabric softener and or bleach, id say (without any specific info) that it is simply a jammed/faulty water inlet valve, or if its a front loader you often get this problem if the water pressure isn't high enough to create the siphon in the dispenser, i dont know why they set up the softener dispenser on front loaders as a siphon when the pre and main wash just wash through normally

ASKO w6884 Eco vibrate violently when spins


It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

Water is pouring out of the detergent dispensing drawer from my 1 year old Samsung clothes washer model WF328AAW. When I opened the drawer, it was full of water. Something must be plugged. Is there...


Pull the drawer out you will find detergent has built up in side the dispenser probably from from way too much detergent, modern front loaders work best with a small amount of detergent and liquid detergent normally will wash better.

Bosch maxx classic washing machine doesn't clean clothes


There are a lot of things to consider when trying to solve this problem. Obviously a front loader washes differently than a top loader. Top loaders tend to using a washing motion that is good for stains but wear out your clothes fast. Front loaders typically use less water and wash more gently, but in some ways still do better than top loaders. Anyway, think about any other variables that go into the laundry equation. Consider the distance the machine is from your water heater. This machine will use MUCH less water to fill than your old one, and, you know how when you turn a faucet on hot it takes a minute for the hot water to actually get there? It's the same way with your machine. If there's a sink next your washer, you should always turn on the hot water on the faucet until it gets hot right before you start the machine. The same goes for dishwashers. If there's not a sink close you can easily turn up the temperature for all hot water on your water heater, although that will use more energy.
Consider what detergent you're using. If you're using high efficiency detergent (like Tide he) maybe you should switch to your old brand. If you're using your old brand of detergent, try getting a high efficiency detergent.

Washer Leaks from Detergent Compartment


Two things might be wrong with this unit.  One problem is there is a blockage inside the hose that sends water into drum.  Make sure that's clear.  The other problem is the dispenser assembly may have a leaking problem and will spray water at an angle that will cause it to leak through the dispenser drawer.  My recommendation is to have the dispenser assembly inspected and possibly replaced.

Detergent not being washed out of dispenser


This suggestion is not too good. If your dispenser opens at the initial stages of the cycle, just a little - pour some water into the dispenser to wash down the detergent. (For my machine i can pull out the dispenser anytime during the wash, except when water comes into the dispenser, but even then i think the water enters the tub.) For this you dont have to hang around the machine for long for it is in the initial stages of the cycle. Later you hv to check the flow of water into the dispenser. Hv no idea how to do it; but i gave you a quick solution.
