Your pump is clogged. This stops the machine from spinning out or rinsing. You have to locate the thing, (comes under the tub, lower end of big black tube) take the clamps out to clear the muck. Refit as you have dismantled. First try to drain out the water completely or you will flood your room.

Clothes come out musty


I would put in some bleach and clothes that can handle it without damage and run a wash cycle. Leave the door open when you are done using the machine, or at least un-latched. There are commercial products, but bleach will do the same thing. You have stuff growing on the gizzards inside the drum, and bleach will likely kill them. They like dark & humid places.. guess what... that's your washer with the door kept latched.

Spinning cycle


Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

Have residue on most to all clothes. i thought it was a water softner problem but that is now fixed. any ideas?


Residue is almost always soap related.
1: Soap goes in the washer first, then clothes. The other way around leaves soap on clothes.
2: switch to concentrated liquid soap. This blends better with cold water.
3: Dry soap has cardboard fillers. Cheaper soap has more fillers. Try a better soap brand.
4: The washer may have build up inside and may need to be cleaned out. (not likely as this clears up real fast)

Washing machine leaves clothes wet and soapy


most lightly the draining system is not working or not working effective enough,take the drain hose out at back lower till it is below bottom of the drum ,if water freely runs out ,there's a possible restriction in the pump impellor or pump has failed,if water doesnt flow freely out at a low level there is a blockage in pipe work

Where's the soap going?


Clean the dispenser water hose ,stuck by liquid dried soup./ the hose going to washer was open during washing time so all soap loaded was gone /
During water refill if nothing water pass to soap dispenser the soap will remain intact / but in washing time all soap will directly washout dispose to drain hose without to clean clothes.

Soapy cloths after wash


first make sure the drain is at the right height(the exit should be about the same height as the main part of the washer) are the clothes spinning? could be a gearcase problem, also your pump might be clogged good luck!!
