  1. I live in a subdivision in north fort Myers, Florida. The water here is absolutely pugnacious, even the rain. The smell is hard to describe, and it changes every so often. Sometimes, like today and yesterday the water smelled varyingly sweet, like rotting fruit, mixed with a seawater/sulphury smell. On most days though it just smells like seawater with varying amounts of sulphur. Even though I have installed a whole house carbon filter from AquaSystems, a filter company local to my area, who claims that one filter will solve all the problems with water aesthetics and hardness, the smell didn’t go away, only the chlorine, so I bought and installed a hydroviv undersink filter for my kitchen and an ispring alkaline uv reverse osmosis filter for my bathroom sink. Neither of them removed the smells as well, so I’m now still stuck in this situation. One of my other worries though is the washing machine, which I know nothing of because I didn’t buy it. I haven’t tried washing my clothes without detergent to test its smell solely because I don’t want it to ruin my clothes. So I’m wondering, do washing machines have water filters? Do only some have, and if so, how do I see if mine has? If it doesn’t, can I run a water filter through the feed line, and which type of filter do I need to specifically remove all the smells? I’m worried about that too because my ro filter doesn’t seem to be doing the job well, even though it’s the most advanced filter on the market. I also did a mytapscore water quality report for my tapwater which only went through the carbon filter. The link is here. https://gosimplelab.com/iZXLVMjv3U
  2. I have just got a beko WTIK76121 and after the first use i noticed the liquid detergent drawer at the end of the cycle was full of water The washing machine liquid detergent draw isn't siphoning the water off and at the end its full of fresh water. So the liquid detergent is going but then full of water! I called beko and they said it sounded like the water pressure is to high so I changed that and i now know that is not the problem as it has made no difference. Could the problem be possibly the angle of the machine? Does it need to come down slightly at the front so its at the right angle to help the siphoning start?? Please help as surely this is not right fir a new washing machine and if beko come out and decide its not a manufacturer issue i will be charged for the call out
  3. Hi All, I have an lg washer dryer f1480rd and the washing drum will be filled up with water if I dont cut the water supply. The machine begins to fill up itself with water as usually, but wont stop entering that. The water level tube from the drum is not dirty and can be blown through. I hope its not the "ECU", the main electronic panel of the machine which has gone wring. Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks in advance Kind regards
  4. Hi My Hoover Nextra washer dryer has been working fine for 4 years but now after the trip switch went off, it won't fill with water (the trip switch is back on). All filters are clean as per instruction manual. Water supply and hose are fine - no kinks or blocks and the tap is on. Power supply is fine. Spin and drying cycles work fine but not wash or rinse cycles. No water enters machine at all - not the drawer or the drum. I've followed all troubleshooting tips in the manual and online. I even bought a new triple solenoid valve and replaced it but to no avail. On selecting a wash program and pressing start the "door lock light" lights up, the appropriate "time remaining light" lights up - then it just sits there for 3 or 4 minutes doing nothing then the "start" light and the "delay start" button light flash intermittently. There is nothing in the manual for this combination of lights. Also if a delay start was selected it should light up the delay time which it isn't doing. Pressing any button at this time doesn't change anything on the control panel. It's basically frozen. I'm guessing there must be an electrical fault but not at the solenoid valve - somewhere further back down the line - but how do I find out where or what is at fault? Is it worth repairing? Hoover will charge £120 for callout + extra for parts. Machine cost about £400 4 years ago. Apart from the solenoid valve is there anything else that is DIYable? Hope someone can advise... Kind Regards Andy
  5. Quite a substantial amount of water is remaining below the rubber as shown in photo. I tried to check if the three holes were blocked - they are not. Filter cleaned. All seems fine. Any suggestions?
  6. Hi there I just got a brand new Beko WMB81241LW Washing machine from Currys, a pretty good washing machine for the price seems well made (except for the soap drawer feels a little cheap and nasty when pulling out) and has lots of features. The only gripe I have noticed so far is that an awful lot of water seems to collect at the bottom of the grey door rubber gasket after every wash and the instructions tell you to wipe the door gasket after every wash. However in spinning I think i see that the water splashes up from the bootom of the door gasket and all around the door when spinning and doesnt drain away. Are there any tips/modifications anyone can think of how to get the pool of water to drain back into the drum so then can be pumped out? - I see the manufacturers have put 3 small holes in the gasket presumably to aleviate this problem but they may as well have not bothered putting them there because the water still wells up there, I have checked and the holes are clear of any obstructions so the water should be draining and I cannot see why it doesnt. On another note, I remember years ago a hotpoint engineer telling me they remove the ping-pong eco ball from the sump hose when replacing water pump or hose because the cand get stuck and cause no end of problems and i did that with our hotpoint years ago and left it without the eco ball in it and it worked fine - so I have done the same with this Beko and took the eco ball out of the sump, do you reckon that should be OK doing that on this Beko machine? shouldnt cause any problems should it? - if it does I can easily put it back n there again. Thanks for any help or advice or tips on these matters that I have raised. Andy.
