Question about GE WJRR4170E Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Incomplete water emptying following spin cycle

All visible water drains from inside washer. However, at end of spin cycle, if I move the bucked of the washer around I can hear water sloshing around. Also, if the washer is not used frequently, that remaining water will cause a musty odor.

Clothes washer will fill with water but will go into wash cycle

The heater or the pressure switch are faulty. Cannot tell you more without knowing the make or model number. You can empty the washer by pulling the drain tube out from behind the drain filter flap located at front bottom. Get a bucket and empty the drain tube into the bucket by removing the hole plug at the end of the drain tube.

Kenmore 2600 TOP LOADER smells like Mildew. I can hear water sloshing around under drum. Is that Normal?

The drain on all washers have this issue. Unless the drain hose runs down hill, when the pump stops, water runs back into the machine that was in the hose but was not drained.

I need to know how a maytag performa pavt-1 washer drains. does it drain beneath the agitator or through the holes in the basket?

It drains through the holes in the plastic tub. You may hear a sloshing sound when you move the tub and this is normal. There is a solution sealed inside the tub on this unit to balance out the spin cycle.

Hoover H160E - stops with lights flashing 4 times (cyclic)... suaully before aspin cycle... appears to be incomplete drain (drains until no water viisble in drum - but still significant water at drain.....

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would definitely change the pump motor judging from your clear symptoms and observations!
It's probable that the motor isn't running efficiently, just enough when helped by the 'gravity' of the full drum but struggles once that is minimum.

Go for it ;-0)

My washing machine will not empty of water and this is preventing it from do i empty the water via pump filter as i have no manual and it will not let me download one.please help!

This is could be caused from several issues. First I would try changing cycles on the timer to another spin cycle to see if that let the washer drain. Some times the timer malfunctions and doesn't allow the washer to spin. If this doesn't work and you can hear the motor running then you could have a broken belt or bad clutch or a wig wag (electric solenoids that operate the transmission.). The easiest way to empty the washer if it's located near a floor drain is to remove the drain hose from the drain and lay it on the floor near the drain. The water will run right out of the machine. If you not near a drain then you can use a Wet / Dry Shop Vac, remove the paper filter from inside the Shop Vac and then your ready to vacuum out the water. You will need to empty the vac several times.
Or you can use a garden hose and siphon the water out by place in one end in the washer and the other end outside or near a drain, You will need to **** on the end of the hose that's near the drain or outside. This will almost guarantee you a mouth full of laundry water so be careful if you try this.

There is water left under the tub after the wash is over. When I move the tub I can hear the water sloshing. How can I get rid of the water. It makes my towels smell like mildew.

If it is draining down and spinning the clothes dry then all of the water is draining out. There is only about a 1/2 in space under the tub. There is a balance ring around the top of the tube that holds water. That may be the sound you are hearing? Try washing a load without anything in it on hot and use a box of baking soda. See if that will help with the smell. My washer leaves a mildew smell sometimes. I started running an extra rinse cycle on it. And that helped. I think it was my water.

You can hear water behind the drum when you spin

I don't believe you have a problem with your washer. It is NORMAL to have residual water in the drain lines and drain pump following a wash cycle. You will be able to hear the water sloshing around if you move the drum or drain lines. This is the lowest point of the drain cycle and gravity will ALWAYS cause some water to be there. As long as the water is not visible in the spin basket inside the drum, and the washer is properly draining during the wash and rinse cycles, you have nothing to worry about.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Is some water in the tub of a top loading washer normal?

It is normal to have residual water in the drain lines and pump following a wash cycle. This is the low point of the drain cycle and gravity will ALWAYS cause some water to be there. As long as the water is not visible in the spin basket, you have nothing to worry about.

Some model washers also have a balance ring around the perimeter on top of the wash tub that is filled with fluid. This acts as a stabilizer to help keep the washer balanced during the spin cycle. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.
