    I noticed fabric softener ruins everything. It turns into a red cement-like buildup and clogs your washer, dryer lint screen and even can ruin sewer pipes. If you want your stuff to last, ditch the fabric softener. If you MUST use it, protect your washer by using very little at a time and...

    Hi all - I have a GE WDRR2500K top loader washing machine. It fills and it drains, but the door does not stay locked during a cycle, and it does not agitate or spin, although i can hear the motor working. I tried "resetting the motor" by unplugging, waiting a minute, replugging, and then...

    Good Morning All! I am in need of replacing a cheaply made BRADA top load 'HE' washer. My two options are for a used older Maytag belt drive A506 or a direct drive Kitchen Aid. Which should I go for?

    Turning a standpipe into utility sink drain? Greetings!! I just bought a house and have discovered there is some build up in the pipes. When I run the dishwasher the standpipe in the garage backs up because the flow is restricted. We're being very careful about not putting anything that might...

    We bought this washer in 2010. It's gotten light usage 2-3 loads a week. Model WFW9150ww00. This is one without a numeric display. Have to count flashes. Some very odd behaviour: From when it was young, it would give a 'too much soap' error, always on the extra rinse cycle. Unplug, wait 10...

    Hello, We just moved into a new house. It was built in 1960. We were testing out the washer in the basement and it seems like the drain hose is either not set up correctly or there is a clog in the pipes. When the washer switched cycles to drain water started spraying and gushing...

    My 5yr old Maytag is dying a loud, slow death. This week, actually makes exactly 5 years that we've owned it. It's just my girlfriend and myself who have used it, and compared to the average family, I would say that it's had minimal usage over the last 5 years. The bottom bearing is failing...

    Hey everyone, I'm really hoping that this issue just needs a straightforward fix... After several loads of laundry yesterday, my washing machine electrical outlet started arcing. The townhouse where I live was built around 1980 and I’ve lived in my unit for about six years without experiencing...

    Hey guys, Please see video above - I've never been a DYI guy at all really. My washing machine/dryer set died recently. Unfortunately, when the guys came, they couldn't install it because some of the hookups were behind the wall. I had to do a bit of smashing lol and did the dryer - I'm...

    I have an old Maytag washer, model LAT9700AAL. Came with my house when I bought it 6yrs ago. Yesterday, washer filled with water and stopped. No timer advancing, no motor running. Crickets. When I manually advance the timer, the washer will drain, spin, and advance to rinse. At rinse, it fills...

    Here's the story, trying to tie in a stand pipe and trap for a washing machine discharge line in my friends basement. The old plumbing is 3" steel and I can not get the clean out cap to budge. It's 1 3/8" hex head but someone rounded the corners and I can't get a wrench to bite. I've tried...

    I've got and old Kenmore 90 series washing machine that's probably ready to be put down. But I'm at least considering a minor attempt to save her. For the last couple of days the clothes have still been sopping wet after the spin cycle and the machine felt much heavier than usual. Water pours...

    never ending washing machine cycle Old Maytag, I didn't see any model information, it just says: 2 Speed - Large Capacity. I didn't really feel like pulling the thing out from the wall to check the back for information. Looks like it might be original to the house, late 60's. It started...

    I have a Maytag 1/2 H.P. 120 Volt 60 HZ 8 Amp motor. It has 6 wires, red yellow, white, purple, orange, and black. It is model S68PXMBP-1043. I am going to use it in a project not in a washing machine. Does anybody know how to wire this or what the different wires are for?

    The former owners of our log home ran all gray water (showers, washer, sinks) through PVC pipe that runs under the house in our crawl space and empties out into the woods behind the house (we're on 5 acres of hardwoods). Toilets are emptied into the septic. There is an occasional sewer odor in...

    I have a slow leak in my washing machine supply valve. I read about tightening the packing nut, but I'm not sure if my valves actually have them or not. Can someone tell me if these do? http://www.amazon.com/Oatey-38934-Turn-Washing-Machine/dp/B000BVPW24 (Oatey 38934 1/4 Turn Washing Machine...

    Washing machine discharge, standpipe under the IPC, tapping main sewage trap My neighbor has a sewage line that runs under his concrete floor for about twenty feet before exiting the house. Right before the line exits the house there is a trap, also under concrete. He would like to drain his...

    A contractor did our addition and moved the washer/dryer to the second floor. We love not having to lug clothes down to the basement. But in the summer time clothes often come out of the washer with a bad smell. The washer is a new front loading high efficiency machine. I opened the wall...
