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.

SOURCE: Heavy water leak during when washing clothes

disconnect the hose on the bottom and see if the seal is good.If it is good, then remove the back panel, start the washer and watch and see what seal is broke and you can visually see the exact spot the water is leaking from.

After washing i still hear water in the basket when removing in clothes from the washer


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.

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.

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.

When I hand turn the drum I still hear water behind the drum please help


You most likely are not hearing water remaining in the tub. You are hearing the water slosh around in the balance ring that is attached to the spin basket. There is a balance ring attached to the spin basket that is half filled with water. When the basket is turned by hand you will hear the water in the balance ring. This is normal.

MY WASHER DOESNT SPIN OUT YOU HAVE TO KEEP GOING IN THERE TO ADJUST THE CLOTHES TO MAKE IT SPIN


i am assuming this is a top load. if so place a screw driver in the lid switch button, turn dail to spin and while holding the spin basket in place turn on. is it very easy to hold basket from spinnihg? if so you may have a slipping clutch. to replace, remove washer body by removing 2 screws from timer console. they may be in front or behind. remove body clips located under timer console and lift off body. next remove agitator. next remove 3 , 1/2 inch bolts at bottom of transmission. slide out. clucth is right there on top side of transmisson. part # 285785

Washer is in rinse cycle but stopped working. full of wet clothes and water in tub. don't know what to do


Sounds like the lint catch basket, located with the drain pump is clogged with lint, debris or even socks. (I found 4 pairs in one once) Its located at the bottom right side. Look for a twist cap lid. Before unscrewing it, I suggest you pull the unit away from the wall and tip it back at almost 45 degrees, this will keep most of the water from shooting out at you and your floor when the cap is removed. The basket is attached to the cap.

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.
