One of the main complaints on Panda washers is the lint filter.
Many owners report it does not work well and a new solution is needed. Many owners buy the floating washing machine lint filter bag or lint remover balls in packs of 12.

If lint is a problem with your Panda washer, try using vinegar in the wash and rinse cycles as it cuts down on lint.

NOTE: Cheap washing machine detergents break down clothing fabrics faster and excess lint will result. Use a high quality detergent if you are experiencing excess lint when using your Panda.

A common question Panda washing machine owners ask is lint issues, wash time, overloading, and detergent type… See below.

The best way to wash clothes in your Panda washer is to:

  • Make sure the lint filter clicks into place.
  • Separate the clothing accordingly.
  • Limit the wash time.
  • For soiled clothing = rub area & pre-soak.
  • Do not overload the washer.
  • Only use green friendly low suds high quality detergent.
  • Use one teaspoon of fabric conditioner = clothes clean and less lint.
  • Do not mix clothing types in the spinner.
  • Use a reusable lint brush.
  • Use 2 floating lint filter bags.
  • When washer drains – Use a small type of a strainer on drain hose to catch the lint.
  • Shake clothing, press out then hang dry if no dryer.

Another pointer if your Panda washer has too much lint and clothing gets tied up…
Put all of the clothing inside of a mesh laundry bag.
This will cut down on the lint issue and stop clothing from getting tied up in knots.

The Panda XPB36 washer was the number 1 seller among Amazon customers at the time this article was written, and it’s had received a whopping average rating of 4.5 stars (out of 5 stars) from customer reviews. This is due to the fact that at a cost lower than most competing portable washers, this one comes also with a spin drying compartment next to the washer tub.

    I have a pan356HB that makes a buzzing noise and doesn’t wash the clothes. I drain function still works and spins perfectly fine. I opened it up and saw that the buzzing noise was coming from the valley water inlet. There is the little motor. I’m not sure where I can find it.

  2. I have a panda pan56mgp3 washer the spin belt broke on it last night. I need a replacement belt can someone get back to me so i can order it.

  3. My Panda dryer is missing the exhaust tube meant to connect it to the vent hose. Can I order a replacement one?

  4. I have a Panda Washer xpb36-388s and I need to find a replacement motor for the washer side. Are these parts available to order?

  5. I need to order a faucet adapter for my panda pan56mgp3… I have the hose with the ball bearing quick release, only. Purchased this 2nd hand. Where can I get this part for a reasonable price?

  6. Have same washing machine. When Items are too damp, I use the Spin program. Press Program 6X’s (small red dot is steady & display shows 8 mins). However, light items get too wrinkled for me. You can use drop-in lint catcher device or add vinegar to the rinse. To cut down on lint AND reduce stress on my machine I clean the tub filter, inside the drum, between loads AND cycles. I also find lint on the silver plate behind tub filter. Don’t know of any other filter that can be removed and cleaned. Good luck! BTW love my machine!!!

  7. Kellie Rodgers

    I have the same washer and it did the same thing from the first use. It filled a little above half way. 3 months later and it’s filling about 1 inch below halfway. I’ve been trying to find where I can buy a replacement water sensor but haven’t had any luck. Anyone have any idea where i can find it?

  8. Linda J Mammana

    i just got a Pan6360W from amazon. Tried to do my first load. I set it on water level 4, but it only fills a bit over half way. Is that normal? Plus when it began washing it makes very loud continuous clicking sounds, almost a grinding sound. I dont even see how i can drain the water out, without letting it go through a cycle, to see if i can see something wrong/ something rubbing or hitting under it…..I tried calling customer support, listed in the instruction book, but only get a recording. I emailed them. I even tried to register through the site and it wont go to the page….i dont know what to do….

  9. LisaMarie Silva

    I have the Panda PAN56MGP3 washer and wanted to know where could I purchase a lid replacement. I have a crack on mine and I want a new lid.

  10. Excuse me, I’m having a problem with my panda washer pan6360w leaving my clothes a little too damp after a wash. It also doesn’t complete a spin cycle/ air dry without taking a really long time or humming without spinning the drum. I think it’s a clogged drain pump as it sputters a little when draining and I spotted some clumps of lint OUTSIDE the lint trap and in the water. Is there any instructions on how to remove and clean it? I don’t like picking around in a machine without instruction, thank you in advance

  11. We have a Panda PAN56MGP3 and it’s leaking from the motor seal on the bottom of the washer. Can we get a replacement seal kit?

  12. My Panda PAN50SWR1 washing machine doesn’t spin. Bought it last July. Motor to move belt is very warm. Tried it with nothing inside the machine; still doesn’t spin.

  13. We got a panda portable washing machine 6320w it not old at all it has e2 come on how do we fix it

  14. I recently purchased the Newer Panda PAN6360W Portable washing machine right before Christmas and I’m pretty bummed out because it was delivered with a few dents and scratches. It was on its side when I got home to take it inside my house so the Amazon delivery person wasn’t careful at all obviously. My machine also was missing the users manual so I don’t know how to operate it correctly and what I need to do to keep it in the best condition possible. I need to find out where to Download a copy of the manual immediately. I’ve been searching for information on one online for hours and am not finding anything, just reviews. I really needcto be able to start using it now mostly because I need to know that nothing too major was damaged when it was delivered to me. I’d really appreciate all the information you can give me. Thank you very much.

    I purchased a PAN56MGP3 1.6 cu ft washer from Amazon in March 2019. I had some problems with the washing machine spinning and draining. I had a repair man look at it and he feels it needs a new drain pump. My issue is locating a part for this. Could you help me please

  16. Mine is doing the same think it sounds like rocks when trying to drain and no water is coming out of the drain .did you ever get it figured out and do you know where I can order a new drain

  17. I have a PAN875W Dryer.
    Recently, when press start touch control, began to buzz, and sometimes motor would start, sometimes not.
    Further inspection shows motor firmly mounted, all belts/pulleys good, motor and drum turn freely.
    Started dryer, and heard buzzing from motor/mounted black box (on motor).
    A nudge on drum will get it turning.
    Motor shows very little effort to turn when start is pressed, but does buzz.
    Again, a nudge will get it turning.
    Dryer was empty during inspection and troubleshooting.
    Is there a Start/Run Capacitor, and if so, where can it be obtained?
    It has been a good dryer for 14 months till now.

    Stacy crowe,
    Panda washer E2 error code means washer door is not closed properly. It MAY also mean there is a draining issue.
    Be sure the washer is able to drain, check drain hose for blockage.
    Check the door to be sure it is closed properly.
    The door may have a wiring issue so check the door switch.
    -RR

  19. Panda washer Pan56MGP3 will not drain and says error code E2. I don’t know how to fix or who to contact about this.

  21. ALLEN VETTER - DIY Repair Assistant

    What is the model number of your Panda dryer?

  22. I bought a Panda dryer and out of the box it didn’t work.
    The Panda dryer gives me 3 error code as soon as i plugged it in.

  23. Hello,

    The inside of the drain hose for my machine (Model# PAN612SG) is covered in black mold. How do I replace the hose? The instruction manual the machine came with was not helpful with this. Thank you for your help.

  24. I have a Panda Portable Compact Top Load Washer, 1.6cu.ft, PAN56MGW2, Wash, Rinse, Spin and Drain Fully Automatic Washing Machine 120V. It is less than a year old. I bought it in April 2019. I have been continuously getting an F-1 error and can’t seem to get help from the company about getting it replaced. How can I fix this myself?

  25. I just bought panda dryer. Model pan875w. I plugged it in and it has power but when I push start/pause button it doesnt work.

  26. Panda Pan 30 spinner stopped spinning. Spin timer works but does not spin. How do I fix/repair this. I’ve only the machine for 2 yrs.

  33. I just bought a PAN56MG1 for my mom a few weeks ago. The hose has a tear in it so she is unable to use the washing machine. Will Panda send a replacment hose? How do I contact them to get one? I am ordering one for my mom who lives in another state from me.

  34. Panda 621 SG washer will not drain. Can hear motor buzzing but nothing pumps. Hoses all seem to be clear and no leaks can be seen when rear panel is removed. If drain pump must be replaced, what do I buy and where can I buy it?

  35. At this point I just got it, hooked it up and it will not spin/agitate/wash it just keeps clicking. I seen great reviews but now that I typed in troubleshoot, Complaints are everywhere. Some one is getting rich off us poor people that cant manage to own a normal washer and dryer. The owner (s) should go to jail for selling something that doesn’t work. I hate these people now.

    Thank you.

  40. Catherine MacKenzie

    I have a PANDA PAN70SW Washer and the water is going in very slowly, can anyone help solve the problem for me?

  41. I have the large Panda apartment dryer. It’s about 3 years old. It made a noise while running, stopped, then started back. No heat. The noise sounded like metal coming loose.

  42. The timer switch stopped working. Can I get this piece separate or do I need to file warranty for the whole unit? It appears that moisture corroded the lower contact and over heated it and melted off the notch.

  43. My Panda Compact Portable Washing Machine (15 lbs Capacity) with Spinner PAN615SG is not draining at all, and all the water from the washing machine side is going to my spin dry side and will not drain.
    I ordered it from eBay and bought a 3 yr warranty how can I get it fixed or changed?

  44. I have a PANDA xpb36 washer and the spin control has come loose under the control panel.
    Trying to remove control panel but doesn’t come loose… all screws have been removed but still won’t come free.

  45. Robin Michelini

    Hi I have the xpb70 and the drain pump has stopped working. There are no clogs, just the motor stopped as I can drain by gravity but I am in the kitchen and it makes a huge water mess because it will not pump out the water into the sink. I have to use a bucket on the ground and dump it out several times just for one drain. Is there a replacement part for this pump?

  46. Panda Small Compact Portable Washing Machine 7.9lbs Capacity with Spin Dryer.
    Purchased September 2016.
    The drain / pump will not work any more.
    Like it quit.
    It makes a slight noise when you turn it on otherwise it is like it is not coming on at all.
    I just saw the manufacturer’s warranty is to send it in plus I bought extended.
    I didn’t realize this when I bought it.
    Paying for shipping there and back would make this purchase a complete loss rather than saving money at a laundromat.
    Can the part be replaced?
    Can I do it? What can I do?
    I feel like I threw money away on this purchase now.
    It’s bad enough it ties clothes up in the washer.
    It didn’t save me money to buy this, It cost me.

  47. I have a xpb70 panda washing machine and the spinner sometimes works, sometimes doesnt i try to open the back panel and can’t figure out what wrong with it, what can i do??

  48. My panda xpb-45 has a clogged drainage tube. We’ve tried dissolving whatever is it in, most likely tissue, to no avail. How do I get the tube to loosen? There’s glue around and inside the opening. Also, should I then replace the hole tube or re-glue?

  49. DIY Project Help Tips

    Leona,
    Are you sure the motor is faulty?
    Test it if you know how.
    Make sure nothing is obstructing or in the way that is making it so the tub cannot spin.
    If you hear the motor running, it is getting power, but does the motor seem to be “trying” to spin the tub but is unable?
    As something is not positioned or sitting correctly inside the Panda washer and that is the issue?
    -RR

  50. My Panda washer xpb70 is 10 months old and the spinner stopped working.
    I opened up the back panel and tried to turn the spinner on and I can hear the motor running but I don’t see the part of the motor that is connected to the spinner move.
    Would I be able to replace the spinner motor myself?
    If so where can I purchase the XTD-60 spin motor?

  51. Tina Fay Burks

    Just received my Panda Model XPB45, what I did not receive was the inlet hose. Where can I purchase, find this hose or should I just use a bucket?

  52. DIY Project Help Tips

    Brenda Soto,
    The parts are not easy to find.
    You can take out the ripped tubing and try and find a universal tubing that you can cut to size.
    Remove the tube and take it to your nearest home improvement store or an appliance store.
    Or try eBay for Panda washing machine parts.

  53. My mini washer is leaking I was inspecting the inside and saw that the drain compartment inner tubing has a rip.
    Can I order the inner gasket rubbing?
    If so how much will it be?

  54. I need the plastic / rubber circle that fits into the spin tub.
    Panda model PAN 30.
    I live in Alberta Canada, any chance you may know where I can find one?
    My new panda came without this piece and no instructions so no phone number to call.

  55. I received my PAN40SF yesterday, I put it together and when I turned it on, the drum wasn’t spinning and there was no hot air. Do I need to return this and get a new one?

  56. Hello,
    I’m having a similar problem with the 10lb XPB45 Panda not draining. The drain pump seems to be working, and trickles of water coming out, so I was thinking the drain just might be clogged. I can’t figure out where to unclog it though. I opened the back of the machine, but am not sure where the filter might be. IS there a diagram anywhere that I might consult? Thanks!

  57. Hello, I have the xpb25-28a and the blue basin is cracked. Any ideas where i can get a replacement?

  58. DIY Project Help Tips

    jyoti,
    Yes, to fix your Panda washing machine power cord, buy a new one.
    Buy a 3 prong 110v or a 3 prong 220v cord (Whichever the one you need).
    The cords are universal, it does not have to be a Panda washer brand cord.
    -RR

  59. I have a panda washing machine model: XPB70, unfortunately its power plug is broken i.e.one (used for grounding) of the 3 pins in plug is broken, Does anyone have any idea how to fix it or where should I go to get it fixed?

  60. DIY Project Help Tips

    Julian Washington,
    If the Panda washing machine stopped, open it up and check to see if the components inside are visibly in working order.
    You may have a bad belt or other part that has caused the Panda washer to not spin.
    Once you find the bad part, order the part online from the websites above.
    -RR

  61. Julian Washington

    I have Panda XPB36 and the spinner stopped, the washer is fine.
    I do not know what to do.

  62. My Panda PAN615SG spin dryer stopped spinning. The timer works, and I can hear the pump working. I run very small drying loads so that it dries faster, so I know I haven’t been over loading it, and it’s very new. What’s wrong?

  63. Jonathan Aronson

    I have a panda dryer PAN725sf. It will not get hot. The air coming out is room temperture. The unit is only 2 years old and has not worked for about a year. I just read that a thermal fuse can cause the problem Where is the thermal fuse on the dryer and how do I remove and replace it. Thanks,

    Jon

  64. Roberta Hargreaves

    Top loading washer the spinner needs to be fixed I can do it but no one can help me get the part. Even the factory doesn’t help. I’ve been trying since August. Stopped spinning it makes that noise though.

  65. You don’t mention which type of Panda Machine you have – I’ve had both the twin-tub machine & the larger “compact” machine…For the twin-tub machine, there’s a couple of screws down in the bottom of the tub that access the top part of the drain area and you can go through the back to get to the rest of the drain line. It’s simple to take apart & simple to put back together, other than being annoyed that you have to do it at all. :) If you have the bigger machine, have you checked the filter on the back of the machine?

  66. I’ve had my panda for about 4 months now and it just started draining very slow I’m guessing I have a clog somewhere along the line.
    Does anyone have any advice on how to go about clearing the clog?
    I know now how to avoid it in the future but I just need assistance as to remove said clog at the moment.
    If anyone has experienced this and fixed the problem I’d love to hear their solution.

  67. I have the Panda Dryer PAN40SF. Drum spins. But no blower or heat. What could be the problem or what part should I just replace? Thanks.

  68. Denise Tucciarone

    I would like to purchase the panda washing machine drain hose and faucet attachment for the panda xpb36

  69. PANDA XPB27B – just bought and leaking from the bottom! The leak comes right from the bottom center of the bucket/washer and all over the floor!

  70. Marsha Meilleur

    I love my Panda washing machine (model XPB27).
    It has always worked great until last night.
    It will not agitate to wash as it has.
    Clothes will not even rotate.
    Feels like the timer knob is loose.
    But why would that be the cause of the agitation?
    I live in a apt building and to use the washers and dryers is very expensive.
    My panda washer has saved me so much money! I need it

  71. DIY Project Help Tips

    Deaire,
    If there is something stuck in the bottom of the PANDA washer, you will need to unplug it and take the side panel off.
    Check inside the Panda washer to see if there is anything obstructing the drain pump or drain lines.
    -RR

  72. My Panda washing machine makes a sound like it has rocks in the bottom when it’s draining.
    Is there a way I can take it apart and see if there’s rocks in there or is there a repair service that you recommend?
    It does not drain correctly because of this.

  73. My Panda dryer no longer has heat.
    Unfortunately, one time it was used, the apartment was cold so I’m guessing the heating coil fuse blew.
    Can it be replaced?

  74. I have a new Panda pan 30sw, the top (not the lid) is pushed behind a post at the front of the machine.
    Can I remove the top of the machine without disfiguring it?
    I can see 2 screws at the back but I think there are 2 screws on either side, near the front under little domes?
    Can i pry these domes off without wrecking the look of the machine?
    I think if the top was lifted the top would fit over this post (looks like 2 jagged teeth) and the front top would be a smooth fit.

  75. I am on my second Panda washing machine XPB36 with spinner both purchased from Amazon. The one I have now is 9 months old. The spinner has stopped spinning. The pump is still working and the knob/gears are not stripped. Any ideas on why the spinner quit? Am I able ship the machine for repair if I am unable to resolve the problem? What information is needed to use the warranty? The second machine was a christmas gift from my mother. I received it in February 2016. The first one I had also lasted less than one year with the gear stems falling down into the machine when the mounts broke and the gears were stripped. I followed all instructions with the second machine and it is holding up much better except for the issues with the spinner.

  76. Carmen L'Ecuyer

    I need a spinner timer knob for the PANDA WASHER PAN30 twin tub washer. Have had no luck finding one. Can you help?

  77. DIY Project Help Tips

    Roberta,
    If the motor is working, check all wiring to and from the motor and control panel.
    There is most likely a loose wire or possibly a bad control assembly.
    -RR

  78. I want my Panda spinner to work again.
    What is necessary to get it to spin?
    The motor is fine.
    I’ve had it a very short time.

  79. Roberta Hargreaves

    My spinner only worked the first time.
    How can we get it to spin again.
    The motor is fine there also but it’s as if something fell off of what makes it spin.
    Handy man and engineer here and could not figure it out nor can I find any help online.

  80. DIY Project Help Tips

    Mary Jo Matey,
    Yes you may need a new timer assembly or it may be just a simple wiring issue.
    Check the washer and be sure all wires and wire harnesses are secure.

  81. I am absolutely LOVING my little panda washing machine … the timer tho. … on the wash cycle stopped working, so its not being timed and it’s now only washing in one direction … is it possible to fix this issue?

  82. I’ve had the panda PAN40SF for almost 2 years now.
    I left some clothes in it overnight only to realize that they were still wet but slightly warm the next day.
    The knob seemed to have stopped spinning part of the way as well.
    I turned it all the off and back on but nothing happened.
    I unplugged it and tried again.
    I came on this time for a few seconds and then stopped spinning again.

  83. I bought a Panda PAN725SF mini dryer.
    Right out of the box it didn’t work.
    After 5-8 minutes it turns off and the vent on the bottom is very hot.
    After about half an hour it will turn back on, but no heat.
    I contacted the place I bought it from and they wanted me to ship it back to them.
    It would have cost about $200 to do so.
    I bought the thing for about that.
    So I am trying to understand what’s wrong with it.

  84. The model number is: PAN40SF

    Regarding the thermal overload – does this mean if the motor gets to hot the unit will shut down even mid cycle? For example if the dryer still had 40 mins left of drying time would it shut down at that point or would it cycle down to 0 immediately to shut off? I ask because my dryer never stops mid cycle it stops only when it gets to 0 the issue is just that it arrives at 0 way too quickly and not at the actual time indicated on the dryer. As I mentioned if I set it to 180 mins of dry time the timer dial arrives at 0 about 20 mins later.

    Lela,
    Your Panda Dryer may need a new control timer if it cycles in strange fluctuations.

    The motor has a thermal overload built into it, which means if the motor gets too hot, it will shut down, this will not have anything to do with heating, but the dryer will stop spinning.

    We can assist further with the model number of the Panda Dryer and if you need replacement parts, we can direct you where to obtain them.

  86. I will try this but I highly doubt it’s overheating. It literally just cycles through the timer way too fast. If I set it to 180 mins it’s at 0 min in 20 mins or so so I just keep turning it up before it stops so that it remains on. Also there is only a high and low setting so I will try the low and see if that works. As for the heating, it stays warm/hot as long as it’s not in the cool section of the dial (0-20 mins section).
    I will reply soon with the model number and results of putting the dryer on low. How feasible is it to fix the thermal overload motor issue should this be the problem?

    Lela,
    If your Panda dryer will only stay on for 20 minutes, it is most likely OVERHEATING and turning off from a safety switch or overload switch.
    Try running the Panda dryer on a MEDIUM or LOW setting and see if the Panda dryer turns off after 20 minutes.
    You may have a thermal overload issue with the motor.

    Does the Panda dryer stop heating and spinning? Or keeps spinning but not heating?
    Let us know what you find, and please give us the model number of your Panda dryer.

  88. Have a Panda 2.65 dryer and the dryer only stays on for about 20 minutes or so maximum, even though I put it on the longest dry time setting.
    Any ideas? I have to keep cycling the dial at least 3 times to get my clothes dry since it won’t just stay on for a full cycle.

    Boris,
    Try unplugging the PANDA dryer and looking behind the control board.
    Something may have come loose or you may have a bad component.
    Have a look and let us know what you find.

  90. I have an issue with the PANDA dryer on the xpb36. It’s a brand new panda, but after 3 loads the dryer no longer works. The timer clicks away, but nothing else happens.
    The lids were firmly shut, machine unplugged replugged, nothing helped.

    Donna,
    That particular Panda Washer Drain Hose is difficult to locate. We suggest looking here and finding a generic washer drain hose and making it work with your Panda XPB36.
    You can also check eBay as there are even more washer drain hoses to choose from. Check the full page and you may find the exact Panda washer drain hose you need.
