Question about Tricity Bendix WDR1040W Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

DIal is misaligned!

Over the last few months I have manged to ruin loads and loads of clothes due to colours running. This has come as a horrible shock as I only ever wash things at 40 degrees...or so I thought. Today, having checked oh so carefully that the dial was set to setting 4 (40 degree wash), I happened to feel the washing machine when it was on to discover it was really hot - at leat 60 degrees. The dial must be misaligned - as number 3 is 60 degrees. Help?

My clothes are being ruined in the dryer..I have the DCVH515 frontload model...clothes getting caught inside..i think some kind of seal from the inside around the door opening is gone..clothes are getting...

I have had the same problem for about 6 months. I have been sticking duct tape on the inside over where my clothes were getting hung/caught. It works :) but the heat makes the duct tape peel off so you have to keep replacing it. We finally had to call a repairman when the drum started making a horrible noise. He came out this morning and said one of the "sliders" the drum rolls on had broken. He said when the sliders begin cracking it can make a very slight gap where the clothes were getting caught. I have run 3 loads this morning and had only one dishtowel get hung whereas before multiple items in each load were doing it. He said there are multiple sliders so it may happen again.

He also said the clothes getting hung was an indication of a breaking slider so you may want to call a repairman to head off your drum doing what mine did. It cost me a total of $105 and I live in SE Texas.

I have a whirlpool top load washing machine model no. 6ALSQ8000JQ2. it is about 7 years old and does not have an area that collects the lint in the machine. Previously this was not a problem, but in the...

You have taken the necessary steps to reduce the lint problem. It seems they have not worked sufficiently. Another lint factor is due to HARD WATER.
You may have to disassemble the washer and remove the inner wash tub. On the bottom of the wash tub is a self cleaning lint filter. It may be gummed up with detergent and lint not allowing it to do its job. It will have to be manually cleaned.

Bleach ruining clothes

Why use bleach unless it is to whiten curtains, ACDO make a specific product for that purpose

Use a pre-wash program and the correct multi - layered tablet or old fashioned powder

Both products contain bleach and whiteners as part of their construction.

Make sure that you use the correct one for coloured items as they will remove colour

Clothes are dirtier after washing...

The problem with your front load washer is a broken rear bearing. If you remove the rear panel, you will see brown "gunk" all over.
If you want to repair it on your own, order this:

Makes a grnding sound when washing(not always) & does not spin all the water

This problem happen to me a few months back--washer was 6 months old. A technician came out and told me that I must have loaded the washer after the water was in the tub. He stated that I must load my washer prior to running the water in because the water fill amount is based on weight; therefore it was now weighing too much. Go figure...have always loaded the washer with water first and clothes last. I always put clothes in first then the water--I must say, the problem has not reappear.

Hope this helps.
