try putting in 2 caps of a citrus or pine bleech straight in to the drum with some old rags. then select a boil wash. the rags will spray the water around the tub, the bleech will clean the tub and make it smell fresh. DON'T put any clothing in whilst doing this. if you are worried about bleech in the machine just select a rinse cycle after. i do this once every 3 months

Hi, Some of the best information that I have found has been on YouTube. Go there, and type in "smelly washer" or "moldy washer". There are a number of good tutorials there.

Best regards, --W/D--

You have already analyzed the cause of the problem. That makes the fix much easier. Trace the hose that leaked by to your machine. There you will find that the hose is connected to a plastic solenoid valve. (A solenoid valve is merely an electrically powered diaphragm valve that is either open or closed). Disconnect the power to the washing machine. You can remove and disassemble the valve, getting down to the diaphragm and clean it, but for the time and cost, it will be probably easier and more effecient to replace the solenoid, and repair the other at your leisure. Any appliance parts supply house should be able to provide the part you need, at a low price.

take the plug/power lead for the machine OUT so machine no power then.

safety first.

you need to clean the filter and also may need to take the pump to clear it

Apparently there IS something wrong with the door switch. If you can, just jumper it out. Open the lid and get to the door switch. Tie the two wires together ans see if that cures it. That's it, try it!

Hi. your problem is actually a rather complicated one.

Timer and selector switches The timer switch is usually the largest dial on the main control panel. It can be either a mechanical device much like a simple clock, or completely electronic with just a digital readout.

The timer runs the washing machine in a pre-determined pattern. It provides the electricity to all of the washing machine components at the correct time and for the correct length of time.

The Start switch is usually part of the timer knob. When you set the timer to the proper cycle, you either pull or push the timer knob to start the cycle.

The selector switches or knobs vary from machine to machine. Most washing machines have one or several switches or knobs on the control panel besides the Timer/Start switch. These let you adjust certain settings; for example, the water temperature, spin speed, timer cycle, and so on. Normally, the washing machine completes the cycle selected on the timer, regardless of how you set these switches and knobs.

Sounds like the pump is going bad. It will drain while on the floor because the hose id lower then the water level inside the machine. You can get to the pump by removing the rear access panel. It is an electric motor. You can test to see if it is getting 120V.
They have been known for the impellor coming off the shaft as wel.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

If you have already replaced the main board then Its probably bad sensor. Have the sensors checked or have it replaced. I hope this helps. Have a good one.

likely a rubber gasket slipped off the groove.... try taking it apart and slipping the gasket back on.

heavy loads have more force during the spin cycle.

Hi Pepsi,
"dc" means that the control board is trying to ramp up (that is, send a signal to the motor controller), but has encountered an unbalanced load and so shuts down. Specifically, "dc" means "distribute clothes".

I took this opportunity to upload a Tech and Troubleshooting manual for you. Here is the link for it. Read it carefully. You will be required to perform a "board output" test after placing the machine in "Service Mode".

I gotta tell ya, though. Based on my history with these, I highly suspect that the machine control board has failed. Let me know what you find, OK?

(And don't forget to rate this solution as "FixYA!", deal?

Check the drain hose. If it's not kinked or blocked then it could be the drain pump. I just pulled out two rocks from my drain pump. I found step-by-step instructions with pictures here:

Disconnect the power. Keep the old board connected. Hold the new one next to the old one. Swap the wires ONE AT A TIME from the old board to the new board.

As for the user whose machine will not drain and sounds as though a chain is clanking, the solution is probably a coin caught in the drain pump. I just had the same problem. Access the pump from the bottom of the machine. 4 screws hold the mounting bracket on undo those, the electrical connection and two hose to the pump. Undo three screws holding impeller to motor and coin can fall out. Examine for damage if it is not too tore up, put back together. Keep in mind that when you unclamp the hoses that water will come out.
