Re: Miele w 1203 not drying towels

Could be an unbalanced load ie too many or too few clothes, if so, the sensor within the machine will not permit 'maximum speed' Try load adjustment to see what works & what doesnt

My miele wt945s takes in some water after final spin so clothes at bottom of the drum end up wet. Can I stop this happening

There is a problem with the programming of the control board if this is occurring.

All you can do is turn off the water to the machine at the end of the full cycle and then run the spin cycle again to dry out the clothes. Then no water can enter the wash drum.

Otherwise you would need to turn off the water each time before the spin cycle concluded and thus before the machine began adding water again.

Why are clothes/towels still quite wet after going through complete cycle?

Without knowing the brand, we can only give you an idea of what might be the problem, but it obviously did not get up to the proper speed when spinning the water out since you have very wet close. If you can reply back with the brand and model of your washer, we can help you better.

Spins but laundry is still dripping wet

This happens to me sometimes. My washing machine doesn't drain right into the drain, I have a pipe coming out of the back of the machine that I have to hook into the kitchen sink myself to let the water drain out. My washing machine was still full and I realized that it was because my sink was a little blocked and so it was draining too slowly and leaving water in the machine. If there was too much water, it would sometimes help to put the machine on again or put it on a drain cycle. My machine doesn't have a spin cycle so it will just give your clothes an extra spin so I couldn't do that and my clothes would still come out dripping wet. I advise that you give them another spin before you take them out if possible! xxThe fact that the washing machine is spinning but not drying clothes shows that there is some problem with the outlet of water. The water outlet is blocked. You can check for the blockage yourself. Normally threads or other waste accumulate in the water outlet, and if possible you can remove it yourself. Otherwise call your washing machine's customer services center and ask them to send a repair man

I just had the LG WM3987HW washer/dryer combo installed on Saturday, and it will not dry our clothes. This machine is ventless and dries by dehumidification. The clothes are more dry at the end of the spin...

I also have this unit with the same problems. After lamenting on making a poor purchase decision, I found somewhat of a solution. Basically, water is not being expelled during the dry cycle. When I addressed this issue, clothes were MUCH more dry than before. Made a quick video demonstrating the fix:

Cloths Soaked after Spin Cycle

If the motor has a transmission, it could be stuck in 1st gear. I think the agitator running is normal.

Before going further it is important to determine if the machine is reaching full spin. Make sure the unit is set to MAX extract and watch the inner tub. The tub should be spin really fast (1000 rpm's or better) during the final spin. If not you have lost one of the phases on the motor.

Broken washer/dryer

This sounds like a motor control board is faulty. Please load a couple of towels in the machine run it. Watch the machine as it goes through its' cycles.

1. Do the towels tumble when the machine is washing ?
2. When it begins to spin, does it spin one way at a fast pace or does it spin one way and then the other ?

Answering these two questions will help in troubleshooting your problem.
