Sounds like you may have some "sand" stuck under the water inlet valve seat which will then allow water to constantly trickle in and after a long time period you are noticing the water. Easy fix is replace water inlet valve...if more techie some valve you can take apart to get to seat area and get "sand or what ever else could be hung up in seat area out and fix your self. depends on expertise and or valve

Put it into a zip lock bag full of rice. Let it sit over night. The rice will absorb the moisture from your device. Try it the next day. Good luck!

You can try a few differnt things, staining is usually caused by not hot enough water to disolve or hard water issues. A Washer cleaning use one gallon white vingar fill up washer with hot HOT water let sit over night than run washer next day on HOT hot. Second try washing in warm to hot water dluting softner more breaks down better. Also dluting the softner more in the cup will help washing in cold causes alot of these issues, Make sure water heater turned up hot enough, make sure washer has hot water fill?

After sitting for several hours water pools inside the washer. No water when a load finishes but water standing inside the next day...


Turn the watersupply off to the washer for a day, if there is no water there after a day, replace the water inlet valve/s.
If there is still water there, then it must be coming from the sink waste if the washer outlet hose is connected to it, kift the hose higher, this will prevent it from syphoning back into the washer.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Water comes back in and stands after cycle is run


I'm not sure what washer you have but a lot of washers have an additional spin cycle. If you left the lid open, then it would only fill with water then sit until the lid is closed. Try making sure the lid is closed next time you empty it and see if the water is in there the next morning. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Cycle never finishes.


we have an issue with one of three things
on the sides of the lid the hinges are bolted to the lid with 2 screws on each side
ferify that the secres are tight
if so then you have a lid switch that needs to be replaced or the water pressure switch in the console is bad

Mildew/Stagnant water smell in washer


you know, this does happen.

run it on a full cycle, warm, with either of these in solution.

baking soda, at 1/10 concentration

non chlorine bleach, at 1/6 concentration

you most likely need to do this more than once, until your nose is happy.

Also, consider doing this at least once every 200 wash cycles.

essential oils have same effect, and do a nice anti microbial as well.

we did this in commercial laundries all the time, as part of standard health code compliance issues.
