    I have a Maytag toploader washing machine,mdl#LAT9356AAE. On washing cycle, It won’t agitate. On delicate cycle,it does agitate. On the draining cycle,it won’t drain. While in the delicate cycle,it only drains some of the water, it stops draining and starts filling over the used water already in it. In order to drain all the water, have to repeat cycle a few times.

    Hi,

    Maytag top loaders are quite a specific machine. However I feel this could be 2 possible faults.
    1) Erratic Behaviour can often be put down to the circuit board
    2) The pressure system is faulty – causing the machine to think it’s full or empty.

    Being such a specialist machine I wouldn’t call a local engineer I would give Maytag direct a call.

    Hope that helps,
    WMM

    I have about a seven year old washing machine ( KENMORE ) HE2 front loading washing machine with a storage tub down below and a matching washer and dryer combo set that came with the house purchase and the huge rubber gasket that compresses against the front door has a hole in it so it subsequently leaks out of the bottom of the door at six o’clock through all cycles. How much and how hard is it for me to buy the part and self install the huge gasket and is there anything I should be cautious about ? It seems to me that it is pretty strong rubber so after even trial and error it might be able to be done adequately without any failure. Someone who knows please respond to this note of request – thanks so much.

    I have a 9 year old Kenmore front load washer, the drum is off balance. Can this be repaired or do I need to buy a new washing machine?

    Thank you.

    If I were in your position I would really consider buying a new machine.
    Have a read of our buying guide but as a rule of thumb… buy German.

    I have a 12 year old Whirlpool washer that is not filling up with water, it just starts agitating when it is set to fill with water, what could be the problem, and it is worth getting fixed?

    This is almost certainly a heating element in the machine and so worth repairing.

    Washer INDESIT WIXE127
    I have an Indesit wixe127 1200 6kg drum washer which is just over 2 years old we have noticed that the washes are taking longer than before and longer than the timer states before the wash starts, a 1 hour wash for instance took two hours! The clothes are clean and there seems to be no other side effects except the timer changing quite dramatically e.g. we set up the washer for a quick wash the timer said 1hr 15 minutes to complete and after a while my girlfriend checked how long was left the timer said 26 minutes and then after a few minutes we checked again and it said 58 minutes the whole wash took over two hours we have since timed a wash and again it took over two hours when originally it said 1hr 15 minutes to complete. We have cleaned out the filter and also checked for any blockages or build ups in the pipes. Do you have any ideas please?

    I have an 18 month old Indesit IWB5123 washing machine. It keeps filling then draining. I’ve checked the outlet hose, and all other obvious aspects, but still the same. Do you think it could be the pressure switch that could be the fault? Greatly appreciate all comments. Helen Murphy

    My fiance washed a bathroom rug by it’s self and now it makes a grinding noise and turns very slowly. it will still fill and drain ok. Is this something I can fix?

    Washing Machine Man Reply:

    perhaps some of the rug has got caught in between inner and outer drum. probably best an engineer looked at this one
