SOURCE: My washing machine does not spin dry the clothes

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve

SOURCE: Washer works fine, but clothes no longer dry.

Hi Ron,

Having at one time done warranty service on those machines in a decent size city ( Calgary Ab. Canada ), I saw these almost daily so I know exactly what is preventing the clothes from drying ( 99% sure at least )...even though as you`ve stated "feel heat around the machine". The condensor fan wheel and heater housing are clogged with lint.

**turn off the power or unplug the "combo" from the wall**

If you are capable of removing the top you'll soon notice there is not much elbow room in there to work...even less than home units which are a little easier, but not much. Fortunately for this issue you won't need much. On top, directly behind the timer on the right hand side top of the tub, is a "condensor/heater housing" ( usually made of "white metal" or "pot metal" as some refer to it ) with a blower fan motor fastened to the top. Remove the fan motor wires and then the motor itself from the housing via four hex head screws ( they may be philips heads...that`s not important ) around the perimeter of the fan motor bracket.

This is where "elbow room" may be tight, but with persistence and careful maneuvering you can do it. You may be able to move the tub to the back and left While backing out the fastener's/screws to give you a little more room. Pull the motor assembly up & out ( careful of wires and sharp edges ) and examine the blower wheel and housing. By now it should be obvious of the problem. These unit's because they are so compact are vulnerable to lint build up in the blower wheel and housing hence, the unit will not perform well in the "dry" cycle.

When you have the blower removed I find running hot water from the sink tap ( or anywhere...I don't think it matters, ha ha ! ) over the blower wheel cleans it thoroughly. Cleaning out the condensor housing is a nother matter...by hand is one way to do it. It can be cleaned via a garden house, but be careful not to overfill the tub or flood your place. ( if possible, take the washer right out of the RV/motor home ) Normally it drains when plugged in, but since your's is not plugged in it will have to drain with gravity, that`s why it`s good to remove the entire machine from indoors. Hope that helps move you forward, or better yet solves the problem entirely. Let me know if I can assist you further, I'll watch for your reply here. Thank's for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiries. Good luck, Macmarkus :)

My model is zanussi easy iron washing machine capacity 6 kg spin 1400 ,my problem is that clothes are not getting dried, water remains in the clothes, what is the problem .


Your washing machine has a problem with the water unless it is washer-dryer. Water remains in the appliance because drain pump is not functioning properly and laundry is wet.

Washing machine 11 years old is jumping on the wash cycles. EG instead of taking 25 mins its taking 10 mins to complete -clothes coming out wet unless manually turn to spin again


It is possible that the program is not running to the designed settings and so the program seems to skip the cycle.
The clothes come out wet because the spin cycle is not activated in the set program. Hence the program controller needs a check.

Maytag Neptune TL clothes still dripping wet after full cycle


Pump out time of 40 seconds sounds good.

No ND error code and you spin up to 850RPM which is max for the machine.

You have no standing water in the wash basket.... I'm scratching my head.

Could you do a Spin Only cycle with that same wet wash load and set the SPIN for Max Extract. After you start the Spin Only cycle put the machine in Service Mode and watch the RPM range. This cycle sets the display to 12 minutes. Let’s see if the wash load remains wet and what max RPM is reached.

""Maybe the pump is not turning on during the spin cycle?"" You have no standing water in the wash basket correct? I feel the pump is turning on or you would have standing water in the wash basket and the pressure switch would have never indicated an empty condition (Low Level pressure switch contacts) to the Control Board. The Control Board would have stopped the wash cycle with a ND for no drain error code.

The pump in the spin cycle will turn on a number of times see if you hear turn on in a Spin Only cycle

I just ran a Spin Only light wash load with about 5 gallons of water in the wash basket. Timer went to 12 min. I toggled into Service Mode to watch wash basket RPM. At about the 5 Min mark (toggle in and out of Service Mode) the wash basket reached 850RPM then a few minutes later it stepped down to 830RPM to end of Spin Only Cycle. You don’t have a water valve stuck open or you would flood/over flow of the machine. Did you here the drain pump turn on several times during the Spin Only cycle?

Clothes still wet aftre drying cycle over


It sounds as if the wash cycle isn't terminated by pumping the rinse water out and spinning to rid the clothing of most of the water.
Most dryers sense moisture but I think they all will have a maximum run-time to prevent possible fires if the programmer fails to shut them down at the end of the drying cycle.
I would watch the machine and when it started the drying cycle, I would shut it off and check for surplus water that hadn't been pumped out as it should have been.

Top load does not spin dry the clothes


Transmission or solenoid that should pick and put transmission into spin. I bet it's a kenmore or similar.

Broken washer/dryer


This sounds like a motor control board is faulty. Please load a couple of towels in the machine run it. Watch the machine as it goes through its' cycles.

1. Do the towels tumble when the machine is washing ?
2. When it begins to spin, does it spin one way at a fast pace or does it spin one way and then the other ?

Answering these two questions will help in troubleshooting your problem.
