My front load washer doesn’t seem to be draining. What’s the problem?
Is the Delicate or Hand Washables cycle selected? Your washer is designed so that in certain cycles, such as Delicate or Hand Washables cycles, the spin speeds are slower. In these cycles, more water is retained in the load at the end of the cycle to keep delicate fabrics from shrinking and wrinkling. Select the appropriate cycle based on the fabric being washed. Click here for more solutions.
Why do I have a strange odor and mildew inside my washer?
Odor-causing residues and mold and mildew stains have the potential to accumulate anywhere moisture is present. Non HE High Efficiency detergents used in an HE washer, body oils, grime, soap, and water can cause residue and mold and mildew stains to accumulate behind the drum of the washer. If not properly cleaned on a regular basis, all HE washing machines have the potential for odor-causing residue buildup and mold and mildew stains. Click here for more solutions.
Why isn’t my dryer heating up?
Did you select an air tumble cycle or air only temperature option? The air tumble cycle or air only temperature does not add heat to the dryer. Expect loads dried with the air tumble cycle or air only temperature to take longer to dry. Air tumble cycle or air only temperature can be found on the control knob or button with the other temperature selections. Click here for more solutions.
Why is my dryer making sounds?
Has the dryer had a period of nonuse? If the dryer hasn't been used for a while, there may be a light thumping sound during the first few minutes of operation. When the dryer is not used, the drum support rollers can flatten where the rollers and drum touch. The flat spot causes the thumping sound. Once the dryer runs for a few minutes, the rollers will regain their shape and the sound should stop.
