SOURCE: clothes are still wet after spin cycle

possibly not a machine fault. if drain is connected to sink plumbing, remove the drain hose and see if it pumps out into a bucket.

SOURCE: mle2000ayw Stackable washer/dryer not washing, spinning

If the door lock light is on then is might be the "door lock enable spin switch" the plunger at the opposite end from the wax motor is not fully depressing the switch. In the stackable it is just behing the door lock. Remove the two middle covers (2 white phillips screws and one hex head screw on the middle of lower cover by the wires)to test place a few layers of masking tape on the end of the plunger and cycle the machine. Might also be a weak Wax motor (dark brown in color) to be safe replace both for about $12 each. Fix in 10 - 15 min.

Hi i have samsung dryer it work fine but it doesn't dry sheets and blanket verry well??


This can be because blankets and sheets tend to absorb more water and do not dry well in a spin dryer. Check that your spin cycle on the washer is putting out enough spin to centripetal dry your blankets and sheets.

Ge washing machine fills up with water on spin cycle


Sounds like the timer is screwed... Sending out the wrong signals and the dryer is doing the rinse cycle when it should just be the spin cycle. Do t know what your timer looks like in that washer but most now days look like the picture. 11_11_2013_2_52_52_am.png

Clothes are to wet after spin cycle


The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SW1: Won't drain


The washer drew half a tub of water on the "Bulky items" cycle, and stopped. All the lights on the cycle dial light up and flash, the machine beeps and the me error message in the "estimated time remaining" field is "Ld". I've tried to shut the machine down and change the cycle to "drain and spin" but it will not agitate, won't drain or spin.

Spins very slow on rinse/drain and spin


Your filter &/or pump could be blocked. Remove bottom panel three screws, unscrew filter cap (have lots of towels cause it will drain), remove filter & clean out. Refit. If you have manual refer to it. Pl rate me if helped.

Draining


Two part question, two part solution (I hope). First the Whirlpool, most of the drain problems I have encountered with the Whirlpool top loaders can be attributed to a few things: 1. Defective Lid Switch - washer will fill normally, but will stop suddenly when it begins to agitate. The tub will remain filled with water and will not drain. Cost: about $30. 2. Defective Motor Coupling - Since you mentioned washing a blanket, heavier loads can put some wear and tear on the motor coupling, and wear them out. The couplings from the manufacturer are usually comprised of all of plastic and have been known to strip. After market couplers have a steel grommet in the center to prevent this. Symptoms: Washer will fill, but will not agitate. You will hear a loud rattling noise during the wash cycle with the drum remaining still. The tub will still drain sometimes, but won't spin. Cost: about $15 3. Clogged Drain Pump - Located inside the machine under the wash tub in the front. The pump is small (white of gray plastic) with two hoses connected to it. The pump does not come apart, so you will have to remove the hoses to inspect inside. If your tub is full of water, however, a wet/dry shop-vac will come in handy to remove the water, FIRST!. Symptoms: Washer will fill and agitate, but will not drain during the rinse or spin cycle. If clogged, severely, the pump shaft connecting to the drive motor will strip and the pump will need to be replaced. Cost: about $40. Now...the Kenmore. Fill problems where the water does not shut off are usually attributed to a bad pressure switch. The pressure switch would be the load level selector on the console. Before you call the switch bad and order a new one, however, inspect the clear plastic hose from the switch all the way to the bottom of the wash tub. This is known as an "air-dome" hose and sometimes will crack or develop holes in them. If the air is allowed to escape from the hose, the air pressure will never be substantial enough to shut the pressure switch off. It may be an easy fix of just replacing a rubber hose. Good luck and I hope this helps you.
