SOURCE: Not draining

it will be the pump they have a small fan inside them they get weak and with the pressure of the water they stop spinning which doesnt push your the water through the motor fast enough to drain properly replace and you will see the difference

SOURCE: What's wrong with my washing machine (Aquarius

I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you
go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on both washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

It sounds as if a bearing seal was defective when it left the factory and is allowing lubricant to bleed out; I would consider this a warranty item and if the company doesn't care to make it right, file a complaint with the local BBB relating to the dealer where you bought it and nationally against the company itself.
Maybe they don't want this stain on their reputation but this is another reason to avoid US manufacturers.

How do i prevent colour bleed from fabrics?


You can't. Best option is not to mix colors with white when doing hot wash. Generally colors on own go well with cold wash with the right detergent. When you get new colored clothes like pyjamas rinse separately overnight to get non fast colors out and then put in the general laundry. But always keep whites on separate wash.

Which is hot & cold inlet connection


If you want to connect up a washing machine that uses hot and cold water but you only have a cold water supply (such as in a basement or garage) you can use a Y Piece connector to connect the hot and cold fill hoses to a single cold water supply (external link to 4Washerhelp spares).
The washing machine will then work OK. Simply screw the Y-Piece onto the tap, and then screw the hot and cold fill hoses to the Y-piece and connect the other end of the fill hoses to the washing machine. (You may also be able to buy this part from a DIY store like B&Q)
If you don't connect a water supply to the hot valve (and simply connect the cold water hose to the cold valve leaving the hot valve with nothing connected to it) then some wash programs may not work as some programmes only fill with hot water. However, some washing machines will work OK with only the cold fill hose connected. You can always try it and see. The worse that will happen is the washer could either stick on the odd wash programme or may abort on some. If you do this though it's possible for water to drip out of the hot valve on some machines during fill. It's best to use a y-piece if possible.
The fact that you have connected cold water to the hot valve is irrelevant, the washing machine will not know any different and will just heat the water up to the correct temperature. The washing machine may use slightly more electricity but if it's less than 10 years old it shouldn't be significant unless you use a lot of 60 or 90 degree washes. On 40 degree washes, manufacturers argue it's more efficient to fill with cold water only and slowly heat up the water to 40 degrees.

Cothes are being put on a 40 wash but coming out stone cold is there a way to check if water is heating as no fault is flashing up on display


I would expect the clothes to be cold after the cycle is finished, as it will have completed at least 3 cold water rinses, so I do not think you have a problem.
If you want to check if the heater is working o/k, then select a hot wash programme, say 90 degrees, and feel the door glass after 30 mins or so, it should feel warm , and if the heater is not working, then normally the washer will not complete the programme.

Washing Machine LG WD-1049 C


Growing up in Europe with front loader washing machines I thought I only had to hook the machine up to the cold water tap and it would heat the water up to the required temperature. However, this model needs to be hooked up to both the hot and the cold water tap in order to function properly. Everything is working fine now that I have done that.

Dryer not heating up


I just had Sears Kenmore come out to my house because dryer drum turned, but did not heat up. It was a circuit breaker. My dryer has two voltages, 110 for the drum and 220 for the heater. It was 110.00 for me to learn to press the circuit breaker. I hope this helps you. Karen
