If you have washer set for a warm rinse and the cold water inlet screen is restricted you will get too much hot water. Another thing I have seen is if another near by faucet has a sprayer on it and the sprayer is off, but the hot and cold valves supplying the sprayer are on, the hot water can feed back through that faucet and give you an increased rinse water temp in your washer. Also, make sure hot and cold hoses are attached to the proper side of the inlet valve.

I have an LG WD-1457RD washer and dryer and it shrinks all of my clothes, Possibly Temperature problem?


Very few driers have temperature controls. The best way to stop this happening is to run it for less time. Take the clothes out when they are still very slightly damp. If you hang them up straight away, you will find that most wont need ironing. Some dryers allow you to set the amount of moisture in the clothes when they shutoff, but they generally are the most expensive ones.

Why does my machine shrink clothes on 40 degree wash


Some tissues are more sensitive to shrinking than others.
Some clothing cannot be machine washed or only at very low temperatures (hand warm).
Especially woolen fabric will shrink even at 40 degrees.
Be carefull with spinning at high RPM's.
Always consult the label in the clothing:

My dryer smells like sulfur . The clothes smell


Run a couple of hot washes with no clothes in the machine

Before you do dissolve some Soda Crystals in 2 liters of hot water and put them into the machine by hand.

Your machine smells because new powders wash at lower settings and do not contain bleaches and soda to kill off the grease which is washed off the clothes

Can I make the water level on my whirlpool duet washer higher?


its because of the design of the machine they are water efficient.a front load uses any where from 15 to 18 gals. compared to 40 to 50 gals.for a top load. they also have a higher spin rate than the top loader,therefore making your close dryer and having a less drying time in the dryer.energy efficient too!!

Clothes wont dry but gets really hot


Hello, sounds like your cold water feed hose has got a kink in it. The machine needs cold water to condense the steam. Just pull out the machine and slowly slide back into place.
