All front loaders use very little water, they are required a cleaner to be run for a cycle some every month , some others every 3 months , cleaners are sold at most stores or hardware stores, depending where you live. Try "Washer Magic" or check the laundry section at your closest Wal mart.

I have the Whirlpool Topload Cabrio washing machine and it will be a year old on Jan. 15, 2011. It is really starting to stink up my laundry room. I have run the wash cycle through with distilled vinegar...

Here is what I do. I run "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner" thru the washer first with HOT water. Then, I recommend running a rinse only with hot water & bleach to rinse the washer out really well and don't forget to leave the lid opened when the washer is not in use.

My Danby washer always drain the water when it fill the water up on the 3 and 4 water level setting. So I can't wash clothing at all. Hope get answer soon.

The answer is the drain hose. It must be routed higher than the machine or water will always drain. There is no actual drain valve.

My washer stops during cycles

You must be using too much detergent or the wrong stuff. Most of these machine sense the motor amp draw. If oversudsing occurs the washer will work harder to try and remedy it. Making it get hot and quit. It will try to do some routines to get rid of suds in the tub. You have to clean out the dispenser and use the correct amount of the correct stuff.

Whirpool dishwasher

Ours does the same thing. I have been suspicious that it is the melting plastic stuff used in the dishwasher tabs that the wife uses.

Let me know if you use that same tab to wash you dishes.

We dont have any problem with the stuff getting on dishes (and we use all white diner type dishes.).

Black spots on white laundry

is the washer noisey when spinning? If so its probable that the main bearings are worn, & losing the original grease into the wash tub. At 10-14 yrs old its probably not woth fixing (assuming parts are still available)
