Water collecting in wash drum when not operating

Noticed water collecting in wash drum when washer has not been run in several days q month or so ago. Today after when I got home, I notied more water than usual, but washer had not been used for about 8 days. If I were guessing it is as leaky water mixing solinoid, but I am not sure. What I did is to place the machine in spin cycle and it pumped out the water and then I used it as normal. The machine seems to work fine, but worried the water problem may get worse and if it over fills the drum, then it will leak out on the floor and cause damage to the house. My wife and and I are gone quite a bit, so if it gets worse, this could happen. What are your thoughts?

You are correct. One of the solenoids on the water valve is not shutting completely and will need to be replaced before it sticks wide open and cause a flood. Here is the part to order. To replace the valve, remove the screws on the top panel, slide it back and lift it off. There you will have access to the valve replacement.

SOURCE: drum stuck fast

hiya
sounds like the drum bearings may have seized, or they are worn and the belt has come off and wrapped around the drum pulley. a few things you can check are:-

does the inner drum have any up and down movement to it?

does the belt appear to be on ok? (you will need to remove the lid to see)

have you noticed any black marks on the clothes recently?


hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfuness of this reply, thanks kj

SOURCE: New Electrolux FL washer - will not fill with water

There are three main possibilities here. Firstly there may be a blockage that is stopping the water from flowing. Secondly there may be an item stuck in the pump chamber. Lastly the pump itself may be seized up. On machines that have their waste pipe connected under the kitchen sink it is always worth checking that the plumbing is not blocked with fat or lint at this junction. Check for kinking of the waste hose, this may of course release itself if you pull the machine forward. As for blockages and obstructions inside the machine itself it would be difficult to give any real guidance as there are so many models. If the pump is seized or defective the solution is nearly always the replacement of the whole pump.

SOURCE: Hi, I have an Electrolux

Im taking it that you have a squirrel cage motor.(motor without bruhes) Locate the capacitor and replace it. Most of the time its the capacitor that has malfunctioned and that will stop the spin cycle. If you have a soft start.(an electronic control), then check the brushes. Possibly need someone to help as the motor will need to be removed to gain access to the brushes. Check length. must be at least 25 mm.(otherwise not enough tension). Make sure power is pulled out when doing this repair.

Severe vibration/noise during spin cycle. What could the problem be and how do I fix it?


if the machine was run severely out of balance (rugs) you'll need to get a look in the back up near the top with a good flashlight , this involves unhooking power and hoses and turning it around , you may have broken a drum suspension link , this device (three) keeps the drum from contacting the shell , if its true and its allowed to run this way you will brake off water hoses on bottom of drum and water will runout on floor

Take the drain hose out of the drain pipe and put it into a sink to test the machine
