There are 2 versions of this washer dryer, a cold fill only one and a hot and cold fill version.
If it is the cold fill version, it could be the water level switch that is malfunctioning, cutting off before the correct level is reached, or a sticking water inlet valve.
If it is the other version, then the same thing applys, plus the coil on the valve that controls the rinse cycle could be open circuit.
You need a meter to test the valve coils for continuity..
Make sure that there is actually cold water to the valve, if it is a hot and cold fill model.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Why does it take so long to wash cloths I have done everything 1 hour and half still washing


Hi Robin,

Many washers have different wash settings and rinses in addition to temperature options and water levels (or load size). The temperatures wont affect the wash times (but hot and warm water washes will cost you more for the expense of making the hot water), so choose whichever you think you need. The water level makes a small impact each time it needs to be filled (wash, rinse, etc.). A warm wash will fill in half the time as either a cold or hot wash - as both hot and cold water are combined to make a "warm" water cycle.

A "Normal" or "Regular" wash without a pre-soak or pre-wash cycle and a single rinse is usually sufficient for *most* laundry needs - especially if you're using dryer sheets. Otherwise, you may find fabric softener is not rinsed out enough to your liking (or not - it's a personal choice).

If your machine offers a "Max Extract" or longer spin setting - it is worth running it to reduce the amount of time they're in the expensive-to-use dryer.

If you need more help - provide your washer brand and model.

SM 8525492A whirlpool washer rinse cycle no water comes out, just hums


when the washer goes into rinse cycle it only uses cold water so clothes don't rinkle,so most likey you have a problem with your cold water,do this,shut down the water to the washer,remove the water lines from the back of washer and mark them so you know how they came off,stick the hoses into the washer if they reach or a bucket,turn on the cold water to see if water is coming out of hose,if water does come out of hose good then stick the cold water hose back on the washer and run it only on cold,if it doesn't fill then you know you have a problem with the water valve on the washer and it's not the house water valve that's bad,and usually if you have a problem with the washer water valve it will just hum and no water will enter the washer so if you hear a humming sound it will be the water valve.tried looking up the model number you sent but it doesn't come up on the parts lookup

Not getting enough water during rinse cycle


In the rinse cycle it will use cold only to rinse with.
You need to see how fast the water is going into the machine on rinse
Things that can effect slow fill, low water pressure, Faulty cold valve
water hose & valve filters clogged, Kinked hose

Admiral washing machine water not hot enough during all cycles.


newer washers have a temp sensor and the washer is programed for around a 100 to 110 degrees F, depending on manufacturer, so if your washer is new it is doing what it is supposed to do, sorry.

The water is still soapy after many rinses. I am using very little soap


I am having the identical problem with a Maytag washer! The first 2 or 3 rinses are effective somewhat, (but not like the Whirlpool I had for 22 years) and I think, "one more for fabric softener"---but suddenly I have a full inch of bubbly white, white, very soapy suds! Picture half a washer of water with a cup of tide! It's that soapy and I cannot figure out where the soap is coming from! Tonight, I had not even used a regular soapy detergent in the previous 15 cycles, having switched to an eco detergent from Costco and used little. I even ran a few cycles with no laundry and no detergent--no soap then!

Btw, the washer has only cold water rinses--I had not noticed the tiny print on the front of the washer--or I'd never have bought it. We learned in fabric class that icy cold water (it's snow melt here in Oregon) shocks fabric as badly as hot water, and it fails to get soap out as well. And everything comes out scratchy stiff like cardboard, and hurts my face--skin even peeled before I began opening lid to check on rinse cycle. I got rashes and dry skin from all the soap and ice water...until I began doing 7 or 8 rinse cycles on the items like washclothes, towels etc. Clothing gets hardly any soap, or I hand wash it now--am exhausted and want new machine! Can't sell this junk tho.

Anyway, so the way I rinse with warm or cool (not melted snow) water is I stop the washer and start over the wash cycle to get warmer water for the rinse. Then, I move the dial to extra rinse cycle for the rest of the rinse, after the water has filled, so it cannot go on to do an ice water rinse after competing the "wash" cycle that's really a rinse cycle with no soap.

I would hurt the person who designed this washer! It seems to add soapy water back into the rinse on the 4th rinse cycle! Sounds bizarre, but I always think that everything is finally rinsed ok and one more with a little fabric softener will do it, but when I look inside to add the downey, there's an inch of suds on top! I don't have suds like that on my wash cycles! It's bizarre...I've wondered if neighbor's suds are coming in, or am I haunted?

Last week, I hand-rinsed my washcloths and kitchen towels and put them in washer for the spin cycle, at end of the rinse cycle, just to get water out of them for dryer.... To my dismay, the spray of water while spinning (have no idea why washers add icy snow melt to my warm rinsed laundry during the final spin but they all do, you can hear the spray) was soapier than my original wash cycle--which has a teensy bit of suds which is gone in a minute or 2! Honestly, my washcloths etc were fully soapy again! I'd rinsed them so well that immersing them in warm water left the water clear and clean, but after the spray, they were just as soapy as after the earlier rinse cycles that had the inch of suds... I had to take everything out and spend another hour hand rinsing and wringing befor the dryer....

I have taken to using pint-sized tupperware to get the suds off the top rather than letting it go into the laundry or washer. I skim it out and put it down the kitchen sink. It's so soapy I'd have to do dozens of rinse cycles to rinse it out, so I skim it out manually. So new soap must keep getting into the washer! It also does not seem to matter whether the wash is full or half. Tonight the previous rinse cycle had been full, and pretty clean. But when I o;pened the next one to add fabric softener, it was only half full of water, and an inch or soap suds. I had wondered if the soap was outside the basket, and came in through the holes, once water got that high, but no. Does not matter. And I had wondered if it was caused by suction from stopping the rinse cycle during spin...but I went load after load for 10 days, never stopping a cycle early and it still put all that soap in the 4th rinse cycle. Or in the 3 cycle's spin at the end of rinse, when it sprays water on the spinning laundry.... This is a horror. Maytag ignores my emails. The handyman says new washers are terrible and wants nothing to do with it. I wish I'd paid whatever it took to fix my old whirlpool. 22 years and never an issue ever, never more than 3 rinses and then only a 3d because I'd used double soap to get out dirt from gardening or road trips like Santa Fe in the winter when shih tzus got covered with red clay dirt used on snow and ice--that stuff is lethal! Normally I added fabric softener on 2d rinse cycle and things were so clean. Now things are not clean, come out ripped, or with pilling like they aged 10 years in one night. So I handwash anything I want to keep nice. Washcloths are getting frayed, towels look bleached or faded....and I am relating to my grandmothers on wash day. Sorry it's just more problems not solutions.

Whirlpool awg 338 washer


initially check the element for continuity then check that any part of the wiring has not come off. if the water does not heat up it may not be advancing the timer to continue with the later stages of the wash, ie waiting for the stats to say the water is warm enough. tone.
