I fixed my washing machine!!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The internet advice worked.

I took off the panel below the door, unscrewed the "thingy" (looked like a gas cap) and a small felt marker, at least that are what the parts looked like. came along when removing the empty filter. I then took one of my handy dental picks that has a bit of a hook on it and pulled out a wad of fibers.
Looked oddly like remains of all those sweaters I washed for a felting project (which will now be washed at a laundremat).

Put it back together and ran a test load and it drained great!!

So I did a load of towels and no problem!!

So hopefully thats the end of that problem.

This fix was for a Kenmore front loader (same as Whirlpool Duet).

Think I saved myself a repairman visit.

Way to go, not only did you save a visit from the repairman but also saved yourself that charge they make for just taking off their hats and saying, "hmm let's see now".

My biggest problem was keeping Bakker away as he wanted to check out what was going on!!

If you know how to use socket wrenches to remove the panels well thats half the battle.

Isn't that always the way, Linus is the worse for sticking his head in the way when I am trying to do something. Then he gives you this big googly eye-stare when you tell him to get away as if to say " Well I am just trying to help"

That's great you didn't have to pay a repairman too!
