If the temp sensor is operating ok but the element doesnt switch off there may be a problem with the power board/timer just follow the wires back to find problem.

I have a hoover hsw2125m washer dryer. the powder is not emptying from the drawer but i dont know how to check for blockages?


A lot of times the hose gets just clogged. What you do is get a tea pot, and boil some water. Then carefully pore some hot water slowly down the drawer, little by little until it breaks up the soap to unclog it. Another affective way is buy a can of air in a can. Compressed air in a can is used for many uses, such as cleaning a key board or lightly blowing out electronics, can get it at almost anywhere they sell computers. Then you do small burst of air in the detergent drawer. However I would try the hot water first, and save some hot water for a cup of tea as your patience of having it work. Thanks Mike

I have a whirlpool deut steam washer Model W10133484A and I got a F35 error


The recommendation is to change this part:

F-35: Analog switch/water level failure.

Item 20

$86

F35

ANALOG PRESSURE SENSOR FAILURE
If this failure is displayed, there is any malfunction of the steamer
component detected by the Steamer Electronic Board.

Possible Causes/Procedure
Check if pressure hose is fixed correctly.
Check if the airtrap is not blocked.
Check if the hose is not blocked.

Make sure you are ONLY using HE SOAP!
Correct usage amounts are as follows:

Regular HE SOAP = 2 Tablespoons
2X HE SOAP = 1 Tablespoon
3X HE SOAP = 1 Teaspoon

The information on the soap usage comes directly from Whirlpool Tech Line.

SUDS LOCK (OVERDOSE OF DETERGENT DETECTED DURING THE
WASH CYCLE)

If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain
or spin phases, the washer will fi ll 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes
the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try
to spin or drain again.

Possible Causes/Procedure

If too much detergent was used:
Run through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
Unplug washer or disconnect power.
Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch,
and Central Control Unit (CCU).
Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
Plug in washer or reconnect power.
Check drain pump.
Check the pressure switch.
Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.

The fabric softner is not draining during the cycle


Normally caused by undissolved soap residue. Switch off machine from mains, Remove detergent drawer from washing machine, there might be a small plastic clip that need to be levered by hand before the drawer can come out completely. Soak detergent drawer in a tub of water, rinse under tap and wash thoroughly until all soap residue has been washed away. Replace drawer.

Water is pouring out of my dispenser drawer


I have read other folks say that this has happened to them when a sock or wash cloth gets stuck behind the rubber seal of the door. There is a pipe that drains the water from your detergent tray and it may be clogged with a sock. Try feeling around behind the rubber seal in proximity to the detergent tray and see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in the pipe that drains the detergent tray. Also remove the tray and check the pipe from that end too.

Have a Miele W320, during the rinse part of wash cycle, water pours from underneath the detergent drawer. What can I do to stop this happening?


Is the drawer gunged up? Are you using too much detergent?

Remove the drawer, and clean it with hot water and a brush.

Look into the empty drawer slot for any blockages and remove.

Replace drawer, try pouring hot water into the open drawer to try to dissolve and clear any blockages.

Consider using a dosing ball and adding detergent to the drum.

Leaking Washing Machine


no you should not need to spend any money on this . it sounds like the hose going from the back of the soap draw to the drum may be blocked just boil your kettle and pour it into the draw if this clears the blockage you wil see steam in the drum then put more hot water about another 2 kettles full down the draw and push the draw in and operate machine on the spin cycle. if the blockage is still there take off the lid you will see the hose from the back of the soap box and sqeeze it this should release the blockage

Steam coming out of washer drawer


This problem happened to us too, fortunately it's quite easy to repair. The problem may lie with the water inlet solenoid (rear of machine, top left under the top cover). The cold water inlet to condense the steam may not be working correctly and the steam comes out of the detergent drawer. Replace this solenoid (bank of three on the water inlet) and this should solve your problem.

Possible your detergent drawer is clogged with old dry detergent. Pull out the drawer and clean with tooth brush. Things shd be fine. Also use only detergent for 'front loading machines'.
