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.

Ge toploadwasher that does not get water out of clothes after final spin


Could be that the spin cycle is not rotating at the required speed to wring out your clothes. Check that the cycle completes at a significant speed to generate centripetal acceleration forcing out the water. Perhaps the load is unbalanced which can trigger the spinning cycle to repeatedly stop during the spin cycle.

Why is the timer is longer than it used to be. each load is about 20 minutes longer


Old washers used a large amount of water and detergent with a agitator scrubbing your clothes. Newer washers use a third of the water and soap as your clothes "flop" over and thru the detergent solution. So you need more time to wash. Also the spinning and rinsing are different. The speed of spin is twice as fast as the older standard washers were, to extract most of the water.

My washing machine isn't spinning clothes out all the way anymore... I have to run spin cycle twice to get water all out.


Hiya,
often when the machine needs to be put on spin twice to remove the water you will find the is an issue with the drainige, if the waist pip is pushed to far down the drainage or if you have lint build up it will greatly reduce the amount of water that can be released when spinning leaving it in your machine so i would surgest checking you drainage & pipes first to make sure they are clear enough for the water to escape

Hope this helps

I have had my Kenmore 600 dryer serviced twice. Today, a thermostat was replaced. The timer doesn't advance, the clothes won't dry and water is leaking from the duct. Is there a problem with this model?


I don't see a lot of complaints from this model. There can be some moister
from the dryer, but not water coming out of the duct, clean the rear duct of the dryer to the outside vent to make sure you have full air flow and so you don't cause a fire if it is full of lint. Then check your washer, are the clothes real wet after the cycle is done, they should not be that wet after they spin,
if it was me I would spin them twice or see if there is a option to spin longer if they seem wet.

Kenmore 90 Series washer needs two spins to remove water


We have exact same washer. It is 11 years old. We are at a point where we have to spin it 7 times and then still isn't too dry. It dies yesterday a very loud death. Mentioning this here because it could be a foreshadowing of your Kenmore 90's future.

Kenmore 90 series


you can look at the water pump inlet and outlet hoses. sometimes socks and other small items would be sucked in and blocked the water from going out.

another theory would be the clutch on the spin cycle is slipping that is why the drum is not spinning as fast as it should.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Washer continues to spin slow in the last spin cycle.


Red Ryder, the motor is 1 speed on this model. A couple of things to check; one would be the belt. Look for shavings, cracks or if it's shiney, could be worn. If your p number is p1118410ww, looks like you have 2 belts, agitate and spin and pump. Pump-R0606507, spin-R0606539. Check the pulley, make sure it is not binding, lube it up, and check the pump, something might be binding there. As long as you don't have a grinding, howling noise during spin the bearing should be good. Catriver..post back.
