We have an 8-year old heavily-used ASKO washer that's been repaired a few times already (replaced electronics, drain pump and motor, IIRC). We keep thinking about replacing it, but it's such a great washer when it works, that we've always decided not to.

The latest problem is that the wash cycle runs fine and drains, but the next cycle never starts. After about 5 minutes of doing nothing, the machine stops without opening the door. At that point it's possible to run a manual rinse cycle with no problems, although the machine doesn't fill as fast as it used to, and the drain water sometimes has a swampy odor, even though the clothes come out fine.

Because it's still possible to get the clothes clean, I've been procrastinating about dealing with this issue. But tonight we disconnected the intake hose to have a look. There were a couple small lumps of stuff that smelled like hand lotion which I removed, and I discovered that a screw had fallen out (or been forgotten from last time) right next to the intake valve. I put the screw back in. The washer is behaving pretty much the same way now, so it looks like we had no impact on the problem.

What's the next step?

Thanks,

Mike and Janine
