After washing cylce complete; 3-4 inches of water is left
After washing cycle is completed there are 3-4 inches of water left in bowl. We have the washer for 2 years and this just started. We dont notice the water when we remove the clothes, its when we start to wash the next load (many days later) that we notice the excess water. Little concerned.

Re: After washing cylce complete; 3-4 inches of water is...
It sounds as tho water is getting intyo machine after use. there are 2 possible causes.
inlet valve leaking. turn water off and see if this stops water accumulating. if it does, then you need to replace valve to cure.
if drain is plumbed into spigot on sink trap then every time you drain sink, some of the water goes down the drain hose.
to cure, take the drain hose up as high as possible in a swan neck

Most washing machines do not dry the clothes completely. Make sure that your clothes are evenly spaced & the weight is balanced to get the best spin speed. When the cycle is complete, you will need to put the clothes into a dryer or hang them up to get them completely dry.
Sounds like the wash/drain selector valve might be stuck. my Kenmore operating solenoid rusted and hung up. I cleaned and oiled it up. You can also have something that got into the valve and it won't close, or an obstruction in the drain hose or the drain pipe connector. Something is restricting the flow or the pump itself may have a bad impeller. Does it wash with vigor or has it lost a little oomph and sound different? Does it leave any debris on the dishes?
the fill valve is an electric magnet valve and sounds like it is stuck unplug machine disconnect water lines plug in and when u turn on does it click, if yes then unplug try to slide a long qtip in and if it goes in replace valve
Hi, When the cycle goes into drain, do you hear the motor humming at all? If the motor does not hum, check the lid switch.
If the washer agitates, there must be a problem with lid switch ot timer. The lid switch is most common.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.
First of all, is your drain hose connected to a kitchen sink or into a standpipe? If its a sink make sure you form a loop or curve in the hose as high as possible above the sinks own waste(plug hole) ,to ensure water cannot travel from sink back into machine. If this is not the case then your water pump, or the rubber pipe coming to the pump has definately got some kind of obstruction inside. Your washing machine has not emptied properly since it filled up at the beginning of the cycle,and has not got rid of the soapy water enough to enable a true rinse.Hence the detergent smell on clothes... Turn off power at plug socket.Take drain hose out of stand-pipe (or connection to sink waste)and drop this hose into a washing up bowl or similar at floor level,to drain off as much water as possible before disconnecting hose to pump or checking the pumps impellar to discover the blockage..Lets know how u get on,good luck.
