The result of cool water temperatures and milder detergents, is a buildup of oil and grease in the machine, which produces oily smells in the laundry. Grease and oil can take many forms, ranging from automotive lubricants to greasy foods to oily toiletry items, and, over a period of time, these oils can accumulate and become trapped in various parts of the machine, particularly in the door seal of front-loading machines.
Run an empty cycle with HOT water and a detergent that contains bleach to remove grease and oil from the appliance. However, be sure to use bleach designed specifically for laundry, as opposed to using regular bleach. ie OxyClean. and or a cup of vinegar.
Best to you.
There is a lifetime warranty on this main basket. and 10 years on the outer front and rear buckets. My unit is 7 1/2 years old. and had the same problem. One of those 3 spokes connecting the main shaft to the rear bucket cracked and killed the front outer bucket. Whirpool tried to tell me I needed a professional to diagnose it but I told her the rear outer bucket was cracked, leaking water, and shredded the front outer. She sent me all three parts for $0! It took 2 hours to get apart and that was me being super careful. The parts will be here tomorrow morning! I did needd to buy 2 shocks at $21.00 each.
Did you find how to use your NOMA digital thermostat? I live in a condo with base heaters. Have three of those. They are less than one year old. When it got cold recently one of them went up to 34 degrees. I couldn't budge the numbers. It's caput. The second one I caught going up on a cold night this week so I solved the problem by shutting down the electrical box. The base heat came back. But without the manual I am working in the dark.

Most of the control buttons on a tub are not electrical. These buttons are connected to an air line that runs to the motor. Sometimes an aggressive button push can literally blow the air line right off of the bottom of the button. This problem is as easy to fix as it sounds. Find the loose air line and push it back onto the button. You will need to open up your access panel. Bring a flashlight. Be sure to check the connection at the motor too. Good luck
Your question is: Your daughter just purchased a new condo with an AquaLux whirlpool tub installed in the bathroom. The front side is removable for access to the mechanicals and is held in place on the lower side by velcro. When you pull the velcro loose the side begins to tilt up, but then stops as it hits the upper edge of the tub. You tried pulling down, but it appear to be held by something. You don't want to pull too hard and break something. Any ideas on how to remove it?
It has been my expirience that the top of these access panals are 'tongue and grove' type construction and are not connected to anything. Usually disconnecting the bottom and pulling the bottom out works. If you are concerned about breakage then it migt be wise to consider the Repair Directory to find a reparman. Or you could talk to the condo maintenance guy. You'll find these guys are a wealth of info.

If this is a frigidaire, when the washer has a load in it, as the agitator agitates the tub should move about 1/8 of a turn. Meaning that for 8 agitations the tub should make 1 revolution. We call this indexing in the appliance repair world. If the tub is making 1 revolution in 4 agatations or 1 revolution in 1 agitation, the transmission is bad. This should have a 5 year warranty if purchased before 2006. You will also need a tub seal. Hope this helps
