Question about Maytag LSE7806A Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
Our Kenmore stacking washerdryer has a problem we are trying to diagnose. The problem is at the end of the spin cycle the water is spun out of the clothes but usually within 5 minutes an inch of water comes back into the tub. We had appliance repairmen over to look at it and they replaced the pump and one of the valves. It still had the problem after this so we snaked the line with a hand snake 25 feet. The repairmen thought there might be a problem with the drain. This still didnt help so we had a plumber come and roto root the line. That didnt help either. Apparently there isnt a vent stack on the drain and the drain was originally sealed onto the drain pipe when the unit was installed in 1994. However we cannot see inside the wall to know for sure and strangely enough even without said vent stack the washer has drained properly up until 5 months ago. We dont want to do exploratory surgery without a good reason since the unit has worked well for almost 20 years.
How far down is the drain hose pushed in to the drain pipe?should only be like 3 to 4 inches,also the drain hose should be up higher than the water level in the tub.if you can pull out the drain hose try this,fill up the washer on small,after it fills,pull the hose out of the pipe and then stick the hose a few inches into the drain pipe and then turn the timer to the spin cycle and let it drain,after it stops,pull the drain hose out of the pipe,if no water enters back into washer you know that it has something to do with the way the drain hose is in the pipe or another problem.if you're saying that the drain hose is sealed to the drain pipe in the wall you will have to get in there and separate it,pull out the hose and check it,it sounds like this is where the problem is,you had the pump changed and i don't know why the guy would do this if the washer was draining so you know that's not the problem and if they changed the water valve on the washer you know water isn't leaking into the washer from the valve so i would check the drain hose.hope this helps

Had a simular problem. In my unit the water was not visible in the drum but you could hear it when you turned the drum by hand. The answer as told to me by the Maytag repair man: The machine is designed to hold the water after the cycle is complete. As he was replacing the boot seal he suggested to just leave the door open so the seal will dry out and not mold. This has been working for the past several years. No mold has appeared on the new boot seal.
From another source I read that the water is left in the machine for balance.

You have a bad water fill valve. Until you get it fixed shut water valves off at the wall so that you don't have a flood if the fill valve on the machine fails completely. Let me know if there is anything else I can Help you with.
