You are probably hearing the balance ring. It's supposed to sound like that. If your clothes are still spinning out nicely, all is as it should be. No worries.

SOURCE: water doesn't seem to completely drain out at the

I would look at the water inlet valve. Sometimes if one of the solenoids is defective it can let some water leak back into the tub if it isn't closing completely. It's not that the water isn't draining completely, it's that additional water is being allowed in. This is a common reason for water being found in the tub after spinning. The solenoids can be checked for continuity using a multimeter. No continuity would indicate a faulty solenoid. See the photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

SOURCE: excess water in clothes after spin cycle

Unblock the outflow pipe from the machine that goes into the sump under the sink. (have a pot ready for water overflow) This will help drain the water. If the spin cycle is making a screetching sort of noise then it is possible that the carbon brushes will need changing. This affects the spinning if the brushes are worn.

SOURCE: Water colects in lid sometime during the

I had the exact same problem. The problem is that your fabric softener dispenser is clogged up with a lot of dried, sticky fabric softener. The flooding comes from the part of the cycle when water that is to be flushed through the fabric softener dispenser can't drain properly so it spills into the bleach dispenser and onto the top and into the lid gasket as well.

To remove the dispenser for cleaning, you need to open the top of the washer. (First pull it away from the wall.) Carefully pry off the little emblem in the front center of the washer lid. Then remove the screw. Then slide the top forward to you about a 1/2 inch and prop it up carefully.

You then need to remove both hoses that are attached to the bleach and fabric softener dispenser (part of the same unit). Then unsnap the combined unit from the washer top. Then clean all the gunk out by running it under scalding hot water in the laundry tub and swirling the gunk out. Don't attampt to remove the blue round fabric dispenser part from the unit.

Put it all back together and you're good until you clog it up again with too much fabric softener; maybe several years again.

Good luck.

WHEN REMOVING MY CLOTHES FROM THE WASHER A KEEP HEARING WATER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BASKET


There is always water left in the washer after a cycle. But you're probably hearing the water in the basket ring. That is normal and is for balancing the load.

Basket spins terribly uneven.


If you find no problems with the suspension rods and springs, you can remove that spin basket and check for an item that could be stuck between the spin basket and the plastic outer tub. Also, check the "balance ring" on the top of the basket. The should be fluid in it. You can check this my shaking the basket and you should hear water.

My whirlpool cabrio has water trapped in the wash basket. Is this normal? Keep getting UL code and checked everything else.


I have the same issue. when I remove the wash basket from the tub the plastic parts all seem to have a lot of water trapped inside them. I am looking for a solution and may start my own question. not getting any fault code at all the washer runs as designed. but the dirty water trapped in the plastic top of and bottom of the wash basket is making the clean clothes smell like a dirty dish rag.

Clothes have a white colored residue after wash and parts of the clothes are bone dry.


Allison, We are sorry to hear about your concerns in regards to your Washer. We would recommend balling up the clothing similar to the size of a soccer ball, and place around the agitator one at a time. We would also recommend stacking it up so it's around the sides and the agitator plate is visible with all of the clothing around it. Do not fill up past the 2nd to last row of holes in the basket to help overloading. The bulky cycle will allow more water to enter the tub, but will not spin on the highest spin setting. Since the washer uses less water than a traditional washer it makes it harder for it to remove excess detergent, and it can redeposit on the clothing. Use no more than 2 tablespoons per load, filling all the way to the top row or holes. Make sure the water heater is at 120°F, the best temperature to mix with cold water in. A lower temperature may not make the water hot enough, and the detergent will not dissolve properly. If you need any further assistance after trying these troubleshooting tips, please email us your address, phone number, the model and serial number, the website you were contacted on, Fixya, your review ID, and date of purchase to Whirlpool_Digital@whirlpool.com.

Our Crosley washing machine (Model # CW5000W) will not spin all the water out of the clothes and is making a bad noise while it spins.


Three possibilities here,

One, you've overloaded the washer with clothes, throwing the washer basket on tilt because of the extra weight and force against the agitator. Remove the wet clothes from the washer and try continuing the cycle.

Two, One of the elastic/spring arms that centers the basket inside the washer housing has broken and is allowing the basket to simply flop around. Disassemble the washer and inspect the basket supports.

Three, The center post that the washer basket sits on is going bad - The most common reason is that the bearings have gone bad. Disassemble the washer and replace the bearings at the base of the basket where it connects to the motor.

I'm getting small orange spots/stains on my clothing after washing them in my Maytag washing machine. it is a 2010 machine too. Any thoughts as to what could be causing the stains?


Unless there is a child's crayon or something similar causing it, then suspect that the agitator shaft seal, or the drum seal is leaking oil into the drum. Hopefully, there is still warranty on the machine. Good luck!

Water still in tub


The splash ring on top of the basket has water in it for balance. As long as you don't see water in the bottom and the clothes are spinning correctly, then there shouldn't be a problem.

Smeared clothes


Hi!

You can look at this as to how lint/whitening from your clothes can be removed---

This is due to un-dissolved soap and is worst in a colder climate where the cold water entering the washer is much colder than normal.

Cutting usage to 1/2 of what it says will still wash good and also cut your chances of getting "whiting" on your clothes.

Over loading the washer is another cause: Even if the agitator is suppose to go back and forth, the clothes are not. If you can hold the lid button on your washer so you can watch the clothes wash, they should 'roll" in the basket and not go back and forth like the agitator. The clothes will go down the side of the agitator, across the bottom of the basket, up the side of the basket and across the top of the water in a rolling motion. Overloading is not just too many clothes but also too little water for the size of the load is another way of having a overloaded wash load.

Water temp is also important: Use a thermometer to test the temp of the incoming water in your washer. Hot water should be close to 140 degrees F.

Water Building up Inside Front Load Washer when not in use


Okay, it is normal to hear water sloshing around inside the wash tub when the washer is not in use. A small amount of residual water remains in the wash tub under the wash basket (stainless steel tub), and resides in the drain line and drain pump. That's why it is important to keep the door slightly open when not in use to allow the drum to air out. The water will not evaporate, but it will help reduce the build up of odors, mold and mildew.

Now...if your washer is slowly accumulating water in the wash basket area over time, your water inlet valve is probably starting to fail. The leak can be very subtle and you may not notice it. The water only comes from one source - the fill valve via the dispenser. If you wish to replace it, the part is available at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part you need can be found under the "Dispenser" heading as item number 1. The replacement is very simple if you follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer and turn off water supply.
2. Remove both fill hoses.
3. Remove the top panel of the washer by removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the washer.
4. Slide the top panel back, then it lifts off.
5. The water inlet valve is located in the left rear of the washer as facing from the front.
6. Remove the rubber hose leading from the valve and the electrical connections.
7. Remove the mounting screws holding the inlet valve in place.
8. Re-install new valve using these steps inthe reverse order given.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you have further questions, please post back and let me know.

Water left in barrel (not the tumbler)


If you can't see any water and just hear it, this is completely normal. This is a front load washer and has a special cover of the inner tub basket. This cover contains some water that has been sealed in at the factory to keep the load balanced while it is spinning.
