I have a whirlpool cabriolet top load washer. Should there be any water in the basket?


In the outer tub their will always be some water to keep the seals moist and prevent them from dry rotting
After the cycle is over their should be no visible water in the inner tub

typically the reason you would see standing water in the inner tub after cycle complete is a blockage in the drain pump

Found standing water in the tub when about to


The problem is usually caused by either a water inlet valve leaking by, or a pressure switch malfunction. The following link explains:

Included are tips on how to diagnose the problem and parts sources, if required.

The odor problem is a different story. Front loaders are notorious for musty odors, mold and mildew. A little diligence can help minmize potential problems and keepthem from coming back. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608512-getting_rid_front_loader_mildew_odor

Read through the link provided. In many cases, the problem is attributed to debris lodged in the drain pump reservoir, or some things the consumer should (or should not) be doing (e.g. using improper detergent or not leaving the door open when not in use). I personally own one of these washers and have never had an odor problem in the 8 years I've owned by following this regiment. It DOES work.

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

My front loading washer has a smell????


The odor that you are experiencing may be from the growth of mold. Inside the washer, some small pools of water may be left standing and is harboring mold spores. Even though you may operate the washer regularly, the mold spores are not being washed away.I have a couple of tips that might help to eliminate odor issues in your washing machine. First, and the most effective in my research is to, leave the lid, or door to the unit open. By leaving the door open, it promotes air circulation and evaporation of standing water. The reduction in odor, will occur quickly and dramatically.

My second tip is to run the washer empty for a quick rinse cycle. Add an entire cup of bleach at the start of the cycle. The bleach is effective at destroying organisms, such as mold and bacteria. However, running it once will not be completely effective. I suggest pouring another cup of bleach into the wash tub, after the cycle has completed. This will leave bleach as the standing pool and should prevent the growth of mold or bacteria. However, if you do this, before doing a load of laundry you should run an empty rinse cycle again, to avoid damage to the clothes from the bleach left standing in the wash tub.

Standing water in bottom of dishwasher...didn't drain.


hit the cancel drain cycle. Often times the dishwasher drain hose is not installed properly. It must be routed up as high as the dishwasher as soon as it comes out of the unit. May be also that there was a little regular soap or something that made it sudds up. vegetable oil poured into the dw tub will remove the sudds. Try to wash again after cleaning out the sudds and run it again. Thanks
