Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have an Asko W6022 Washer; it part of a stacked system and I just finished replacing the belt and a felt washer on the dryer. I have a feeling that the consistent drip that I know have is the result of the moving that was required to get to the back of the dryer. The drip is coming from the front of the unit (not at the drain plug) on the left corner and seems to be getting worse - have a feeling I loosed something...hopefully anyway. What I need are isntructions on how to get at this part of the unit

    Hi,
    I think the drip has happened because of all the moving I did so yes, I do need information on what to do to open up this part of the unit to access where the drip may be. Also any suggestions you could make as to what areas/connections to look at that may be responsible for this leak would be appreciated.

Hello, welcome to FixYa. I understand by your post you have an Asko washer & dryer stacked. I think you are inquiring about a leak that has developed on the washer, but since you alluded to working on the dryer as well I want to be sure. As for servicing them, (either wash or dryer...I have both) I can send you the authorized Asko service manual for the W600 series washer that will clearly guide you in any service you may need to do. If you want to post an email address I can fire it off to you in the morning (It is presently just after 11pm mountain time where I reside so my PC is off and I'm heading to bed) If you can wait 7-8 hours that is. Let me know and I'd be glad to help in any manner I can. Thanks for choosing FixYa today. Regards, Macmarkus :)

    Hello again,



    Thank you for replying Lorne. I will send you the service manual as soon as I'm through here. I just wanted to first instruct you to remove the front panel at the bottom for a visual inspection (if you haven't already)



    To do so is as follows, **unplug the unit from the dryer or dryer from the wall....safety first**



    1. Open the drain pump cover. (Use the partition

    from the detergent drawer or a screwdriver.)

    2. Being careful not to break off the drain plug,

    disconnect the drain hose from the plug.



    NOTE

    There may be water left in the machine that will

    run out through the drain hose. It's a good idea to

    place a towel or shallow bowl underneath the drain

    hose to catch the water.



    3. Unscrew the emergency opening handle.

    4. Remove the two screws at the bottom.

    5. Remove the cover, starting at the lower edge.



    Let me know if you see anything obvious or not and I'll try to help you going forward from here. With water, it can be originating anywhere, but dripping out to the left front after running from who knows where. I'll send the service manual now. Good luck.

I have a stacked Frigidaire FEZ831CA washer/dryer combo and when running the dryer it makes a very high pitched (AND LOUD) screeching sound. Any ideas as to what might be the problem? Thanks, Sean


screeching sound
Sean, Bad felt gasket body to drum, if belt drive on dryer, it could be worn and slipping, making a screech, or if not the belt, the drum may have a worn bearing on its hub allowing it to run crooked and rub where it should not.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

ASKO 7000 series washer drum stopped rotating. Smelled of burning. Could not turn the drum by hand. Guessing a burned out bearing as electronics and pump still work and are trying to turn steel drum. ...


check inside your washer for nails or other objects . I already seen a nail fall down in one of the basket holes and the nail stuck into the outer tub not allowing the basket to spin. If you dont see anything in the basket holes, then it is your bearings. The burning smell is coming from your belt. The motor is spinning but your basket is not. It is cheaper to buy a new washer. In ordered to fix your washer you have to rebuild it. The bearing are built into the outer tub of the washer.

Hot water won't enter washer


Looks like you are going to need a water valve. I was thinking about how tough it would be to replace that valve when I was working on the dryer belt replacement and felt kit replacement. Their was nothing wrong with the washer. That is going to be a chore changing that thing out. I suggest you try and remove the screens first and clean the sediment. themobilian_424.jpg

I need to know if a new Asko Dryer will stack with my old washer


The exterior size hasn't changed and the plug to run the washer is the same so I don't see a problem. A good retailer can check this for you , but I haven't seen any difference in the stacking kits.
