Re: clothes will not wring out water

On this model, first check your pump for proper operation. Wet clothes can be the result of slow spin speed, which can be casued by a binding tub seal or bearing, brake rotor assy. not disengaging properly, or a slipping clutch spring. You also want to check to see if you have anything binding between the tub and basket that will slow it down. Sometimes a sock or lint can wad up and cause a drag.

How to repair Maytag washer.

I really need more info, but I'll pass this along. If unit does fine with small loads but larger loads like towells don't, then if unit has a belt, change belt. Belts usually are easy to change and inexpensive. Start with that and it might just save a service call. Good Luck

Makes grinding sound when agitating & when spins clothes must be wrung to get more water out

Your pump is going out. I have seen em lock slap up in one direction only and not leak but the bearing be gone. Easy fix. 3 s/8th inch screws hold the pump to the base. a couple screws hold the service panel on and you need pliers to get the hose clamps loose. The belt comes off easy by hand no tools need. The belt also might need to be changed which is simple. Let me see if i can find a video.

Hi - My Whirlpool washer appears to not use enough water. Don't get me wrong, I want the machine to use low water (that's why I bought a front loader, model: WFW97HEX). However, when I stop the...

Don't pause the cycle mid cycle. The machine uses the amount of water it needs to clean the amount of clothes that are in the tub. If you pause it after the first 7 or 8 minutes, you're already past the sensing part of the cycle and likely you won't get more water for the additional clothes.

Also, the clothes don't need to be soaking wet or wet enough to wring out. These new HE machines mix the detergent with water and then spray that detergent solution onto your clothes. Then the clothes against clothes rubbing with that solution already coating the clothes is how the machines clean better! It is a very similar process to when you pretreat your clothes with Shout of Spray and Wash. You spray the clothes and then rub the short against itself. Now the Whirlpool machines are doing this for you!

Getting the machine to spin heavy load

you have a bad belt, your drain is too high
you can change the belt but you may need to get a high velocity pump if your drain tube is much higher than 1 foot above the machine

My washer doesn't wring the clothes fully.

It's not spinning fast enough because of a loose or worn belt on the motor. Post back with your model number and I may can find a diagram of your washer to help you.
