what you can do, is take the hold button, and push it back and forth maybe 2 or 3 times, than you hold down the "menu" utton and the center button at the same time for about 10 seconds and you will see it restarting with a black screen and the apple icon in the center than you can let go of the buttons and about 10 seconds it willl become brighter and you will see the icon, then you can get to all of your music or videos and such

Usually after three years the pump tube in the pump breaks down from exposure to the chlorine. You need to replaced the pump tube. Also the end of the tube that delivers the clorine could be plugged as chlorine is famous for crystalizing and plugging the tubes. Also check to make sure that the pump is running.

How to clean


Hello Lisa Rucker - I suggest to first rub some bleach around the door gasket. Let this dry. Next rub some vinegar around the door gasket. Let this dry. (Do NOT mix the bleach and vinegar) Then run a hot empty load of bleach in all three dispensers. Put 1/2 cup of bleach in the detergent dispenser and fill the softener and bleach dispenser to the max fill line with bleach. Once that is done repeat the process with vinegar. Please make sure you run a load of towels or some sort of items that will not matter if you get a little bleach on them once this process is done.

Mouldy very smelly rubber seal around the door of machine. Normally only use 40 degree or lower washes have tried washing at 90degrees but has made smell much worse.


Hello, W/D here.

If you feel around the underside of the bellows seal (the rubber piece that extends from the door opening to the tub), you will feel that it is slimy and will have debris stuck in it. Use paper towels or similar to remove as much as you can all the way around the circumference of the seal. Mix up a solution (about a quart/liter) of bleach and water in a 50-50 ratio, and wipe down the underside of the seal liberally, then clean the facing side as well. Pour the remainder of the solution into the tub of the washer, along with two more cups of bleach. Fill all of the dispenser cups (detergent/softener/bleach) with bleach, and select the hottest, longest cycle available. For us, this is the "sanitary" cycle. Run this cycle, and follow this with a normal cycle to remove the bleach residue. Front loaders are more prone to moisture build up than top loaders, and, for this reason, they are more likely to produce mold and foster bacterial growth. One very good thing to do after the sanitizing cycle that you just ran is to leave the door open between wash cycles. Top loading machines were normally left open as a matter of convenience, and did not produce as much of the smells associated with front loaders. This was due to air being allowed to circulate freely in the machine between washes, keeping the moisture contend lower,making it harder for growth to occur. Top loaders also drained around the seals better due to gravity. Even with the door being left open, you may have to run a sanitizing cycle as before from time to time. How often depends on your washing pattern, the quality of your water and other variables, so let your nose be your guide. In the most severe cases of odor, where the seal itself is permeated with bacterial growth, the seal can be replaced. Other options can also include removal and cleaning of the strainer. Normally, these are not required. Regular cleanings with proper air flow will normally be sufficient to keep the washer sweet smelling.
Try the cleaning first, as this normally does the trick, and leave the door open. If need be, post again, and one of us will guide you through the process further.
Best regards, --W/D-- Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

HI, i have a zanussi FJDR1466s washer which is now 7 years old and i have grey lines on washing after a wash also there is grey grunge in the door seal. Can you tell me what i should do to correct this...


Hello, W/D here.

We use bleach to clean the washer from time-to-time.

1. Mix bleach 50%50% with water, and wipe the door seal and bellows liberally.
2. Pour the remainder in the tub, along with one additional cup of straight bleach.
3. Fill all of the dispenser cups with bleach.
4. Run the hottest cycle available for your machine, and the hottest rinse cycle available. For our machine, this is the "sanitary" cycle.
5. When this cycle has completed, run a regular cycle to purge out any residual bleach.
5. Leave the door open between wash loads. This allows the moisture to evaporate, and keeps the mold from developing. This wasn't ever an issue with top loaders. Most people left the lid open! It's more of a problem with front loaders; there are more places where water can collect and pool.

IF you don't get relief by performing the above steps, you may have to replace your bellows seal (the part between the door and the tub). I have seen where some folks' smell problem just won't go away, and that's how they cured it. Normally, the bleach wash and leaving the door open will do the trick. You may even have to do this several times to get the full effect, but it's worth a try, and is much less expensive than replacing a bellows. Like I said, it usually works.

Best regards, --W/D--

What causes the tears in the bellow seals on front loaded washers


It’s caused by gradual wear and tear through the vibration of the machine and rotation of the drum. If they are breaking down too often then it may be that your washing detergent mix or use of bleach or how you clean the bellows is weakening the rubber. Also excessive and heavy loads put more stress on the drum and can cause the drum to lurch dramatically from side to side which will end up in causing the bellows to wear / tear.

Bleaching subsequent loads


I'm no repairman but here's a coupla thots:
1 - try running an empty load after bleaching. Save money and just use cold water. First add a few cups of water to the bleach dispenser to help flush out the old bleach that might remain, then run it.
2 - lemon juice is naturally acidic and should neutralize the bleach. You could add some to the bleach dispenser and do the above. Maybe mix a half-cup with a few cups of water and put in the dispenser, then run it. (Lemon juice [or vinegar] is good thing if you get bleach on your hands, too.)
OF COURSE -- Test to see if this works with a couple colored rags before running any good clothes through.
3 - How about using oxygen bleach alternatives (color-safe bleach) instead of regular bleach?
I suppose there could be a problem with your dispenser, idk....

Hobart LX30H washing to hot.


what temp is it washing at. washing should not be the problem. This machine is designed to rinse at 180 degrees + to sanitize dishes. The machine could be converted to a chemical sanitize, it would use bleach in the rinse water instead of 180 degree water to sanitize.
