Clothes retaining water after final spin

Hi,
I have had my front loader for approximately eight years and on a few occasions have experienced this problem but it does not seem to be correcting itself. It washes but does not extract all the water from washing load. After the cycle is complete, clothes are 'very heavy' as water has not been extracted. I have tried putting clothes through the final spin cycle again to hopefully remove the water but this is not working. I am not aware of any filters etc. that I should be checking, other than where the washing power is placed - which I regularly clean. I no longer have the instruction booklet so if you can offer any advice, it would be greatly appreciated.

It seems that your washer might be on its final leg, my friend. because its laying on its side you do not hear the belts slipping as you would a traditional washer. now the belt (or belts depending on your model) but if it has been slipping for a while the pulley could be grooved and that will only speed up your next belt wearing out. the pulley can be replaced. its just up to you on what you want to do. another thing the motor could be getting weak as well. best thing is to have a tech take a look and give you his synopsis of what is wrong.


good luck
Jason

My washing machine fills with pieces of black matter. I have done machine clean washes and it still happens every time, covering my clothes in black pieces that look like cardboard. Please help my - the...


Hi mine does exactly the same! I have to call in my washing machine technician more often (he told me this would happen with a top loader as opposed to a front loader, boy was he right!!) and he cleans out the drum. Mostly it is the fabric softener which is too thick. I water mine down to 50/50 and I do another spin after my final wash. I also empty the filter of water at the side/bottom of the machine. This annoying problem is caused by the way the drum turns on a top loader as opposed to the front loader. My top loader cannot heat water automatically either like a front loader, and I think this also adds to the problem as hot/boiling water would dissolve all that soap/fabric softener. Hope this helps.

Washer won't final spin


After charging me $275 to change the water pump, the repairman said I needed a new computer board for another $160. I went & bought a new washer - this time a regular top loader mechanical washer with no computer. The repairman said computerized washers & front loaders in particular have lots of problems. He said top loader Whirlpools have the least problems.

OLDE WASHING MACHINE LEAKING AFTER FINAL SPIN BUT NOT ALL THE TIME


Not too familiar with top loaders. With front loaders good pressure is required to keep the inlet valve closed, when not in operation. If the pressure is not there water leaks even when the machine is off. The problem cld be with the pressure from your faucet or your inlet valve; mysterious why it happens after the final spin, & your second machine.... I can't be of much help here. You hv to surf......
