SOURCE: Strong meldew smell from washer

Clean out the drain filter. mine had one of my kids socks stuck in it. Any small item could get clogged, it is best to use a laundry bag for those items.

Check to make sure that the filters in the water valves are not clogged up.  Go behind the machine, turn off the water supply and disconnect the hoses on the machine side.  Look inside the water valves and check the filter screens to make sure they're clean.  Get a large bucket and open the water valve to clear out the hoses and make sure you have good water flow coming out of the hoses.  If both of those situations are cleared up, your machine should work properly.

SOURCE: The lights on my LG WM2016CW will not come on.

While looking for the fuse, which I could not find despite opening up the machine from the back (and vacuuming underneath--yuck!), I left the washer unplugged for about 30 min. From reading other forums and such, I realized that unplugging for a little while is often the solution because the prolonged (at least 5 min) lack of power triggers the system to reset. Sure enough, when I went back to plug it in and give up for the night, the thing worked fine. Good luck to anyone else out there!

SOURCE: my washer won,t drain how hard is it to replace

Open the little door in the bottom left hand corner, unscrew the black cap and drain the water out.
If this doesn't fix the problem, you may need a new Drain pump. Unplug the machine. Remove the filter recess by removing the one screw inside and using a putty knife at the left and / or right edge and popping it out. Pull the machine out about 18 inches and tip it back, resting it against the wall. Remove two more screws behind where the recess was holding the pump housing on. Reach under the machine and remove pump. There is a tab to depress under the pump housing to release it from the base. The pump motor is held onto the housing by three screws. Remove them and inspect the impeller to see if it has come off the shaft. If it has, pushing it back on will not solve the problem, as it will come off again. Install new drain pump and reassemble.

make sure the heating element isnt touching the casing inside the heating tube. if its an indoor tub, make sure the filtration cycles are not set to constant. constant filter cycles on an indoor tub will generate residual heat from the circ pump running 24/7, causing tub to heat past 104 degrees

You could have an unbalanced tub or the piece is rotating around in the outer tub and making the noise. Contact a professional to have the machine taken apart if the noise continues.

I have a five year old Amana Commercial washer. The washer started smoking on the rinse cycle and I didnt realize that it wasnt spinning. Is the part to fix this reasonable or should I just replace the...


Hello,
Well their are several possible things that can cause that;
The transmission pulley did not properly disengage the brakes so in the spin cycle the tub didnt turn to cause the belt to slip and smoke and burn
thier is something obstructing the tub from turning on the spin cycle so again the belt slipped and smoked
the tub bearing is locked up so once again the belt......

so it may worth a service call to determine what the cause is,surely a belt will be needed but need to know why the belt is burning

Kenmore 94802 washer belt overheats, smokes, and melts


sounds like perhaps the trannsmission has locked up and is not spinning freely, therfore the belt is meeting resistance and not turniing.( try turning the trans. pullley( where the bsck of belt is wound)does it turn freely??? try turning the tub from inside does it spin at all??? before i condemn the tranny i would check for article of clothing fallling between the tubs, holding from spinning, also ive seen (nails/screws/bra underwires,etc..) poke through onr of the holes with in the tub abd stuck to the outer tub also preventing the tub from spinning, look closely to all the inner basket holes!!!

it may just be a wire rubbing the tub and the insulation is gone. smoke means something is not right. the drive motor will smoke if the windings overheat neccesitating a new motor. - the start or run capacitor for the motor may be bad.

Smoke smell coming from my 80 series Washer


do you actually see smoke or is it you have a burning smell
if you have a smell the motor may be overloading on spin
sometimes this is due to too much soap powder in wash
and when machine spins the water cant get away due to soap suds under and around bowl
acts like a brake on motor
try no soap powder in next wash
a good way to tell is that you still have soap in washing if you lift the lid (with no soap powder added)

Washer emitting burning smell and smoke on fast spin


Yes, the heating element is coming on when it shouldn't. A likely cause is the pressure pot (Level sensor sender unit) being blocked with sludge. You'll find this under the machine, either screwed to the RH side of the tub, near to the front of the machine secured by three Philips screws, or attached to the side of the big hose that goes from the tub to the pump,secured by a Jubilee clip, underneath the machine. disconnect the power and remove the pressure pot, in both cases it's a long rigid white plastic tube, from one end of which comes a narrow flexible plastic hose which goes up to the top of the cabinet and is attached to the pressure switch itself. This tube is likely to have a load of muck in it, as its bottom end. Clean this out, and if your element didn't burn out, then everything should now be fine.
