Hi. I recently changed the gasket on my Miele W5741 and now I have noted my clothes are still wet (only sometimes) after the wash finishes. I have noted it does a spin (goes very fast), then stops, with about 2 minutes left on the timer, injects more water and then does nothing, the timer runs out and then the beep lets me know it is finished. I open the door and clothes are wet. I can sometimes run a spin cycle after this, and it works as expected, but sometimes it does the same as above, and the clothes are still wet. Sometimes, the washer behaves perfectly and clothes are spun as expected, the machine spins the clothes very fast, and then finishes and clothes come out partially dry as expected. I was wondering if I have inadvertently done something when changing the gasket. I have checked and there is nothing stuck in the front drain, or the hose connected to it. I haven't taken the back or sides off yet, but doesn't seem like a drainage issue and was wondering if it could be something else? Thanks in advance
I have an Electrolux EWF 1087 Front loader washing machine and have recently had a problem with a leak. It happened during the fill stage (water going in) before the spin cycle. At first water leaked out of the bottom of the machine (couldn't see where) and then it squirted out the front of the machine around the rubber seal (near the bottom of the seal where the door seals). After reading around it seems that this can be due to the three holes bridging the outer drum to the inner drum (at the bottom of the rubber ring seal) being blocked. I'm not sure what the purpose of these are. If the outer drum fills with water then water should seep through the holes in the washer drum and partially fill the inner drum. The way water squirted up it was like there was a build up of pressure. Those holes were a little clogged up (but not badly), so I am wondering if this could cause the leak out the bottom of the machine and out the front. The bottom leak started first. Any clues? Thanks
