      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

washing machine problem.

Recommended Posts

Our main washer will not start spining when it gets to that cycle so we are now using our backup washer in the basement. I just noticed that when the water is filling the tub to wash I also have water coming out the drain hose. It seems to be taking a long time to fill and it is a large wast of water. the tub does stay full once it gets enough water in it tho. Anyone have any ideas what is going on or how to fix? I hope that explanation made sense.

Thanks

What kind of washer is it (brand and front loader or top loader)? Does washer just stop when it gets to the point where it should start spinning, or does it run and drain without the clothes spinning? Check the height of your drain hose for the problem of draing when filling. If the drain hose is lower than the height of the water in the tub, the water will slowly drain out from gravity. Just make sure the drain hose loops above the highest point the washer fills to in the machine.

The main washer is a kenmore. it is a one piece stackable washer dryer. the washer is on the bottom and is a top loader. It runs until it gets to that cycle. The water drains but it does not spin so the clothes are dripping wet. The knob stops at the spin cycle also. The hose is lower on our backup washer so I will move the hose.

Thanks

If knob stops at spin cycle, could be something as esy as a bad lid switch. Easiest way to tell is to bypass lidswitch with a wire and try it that way. Usually lidswitch has 2 wires that can be linked to bypass the component.

I just had the lid switch replaced about 6 months ago. I will check that. Can I run it without a switch all the time? My other washer is working fine now that I moved the drain tube.

Thanks a ton for the help.

If you bypass the lid switch and it works, you can wire nut the 2 wires together and it will never break again. Only thing, it won't stop spinning when you open the lid.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
