If it is leaking from the waste pump area it may be blocked by a small piece of clothing like a sock or something similar! This will also cause it to take too long to complete a cycle. Remove the rubber hose onto the waste pump and check inside the hose and the pump, make sure the pump spins freely and that nothing is stuck in the hose pipes leading to the pump

SOURCE: Intuitive eco Iw811 Rinse 1 no water coming thru!

the 1st rinse light is normally set to "spray rinse", this means the machine will pump out the water, spin at medium speed then pulse cold water into the machine, this occurs for about 2 mins, then the machine will spin out, and advance for the final rinse which is a deep rinse.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 Series - machine won't rinse or spin

Manually move the timer to the SPIN mode and turn it on.
If nothing happens, replace the lid switch.
With a model number I could be more specific.

SOURCE: old model rca washer machine...will not agitate/wash the clothes,does spin.

If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.

What can cause my LG Front Loader not to complete a cycle?


No spin, try these:



Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.


Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)

Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.

On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Cant get my keurig b31 mini plus to use water it just sits there


It may be time to descale. Most models will give you a message when it's time to have the mineral deposits cleaned.
HERES HOW TO DO THAT...
Empty water resevoir. Disable auto off. Pour approx 48 oz of undiluted white vinegar into resevoir. PLace large mug on drip plate, run brew cycle, dump contents of mug in sink. DO NOT USE A K-CUP.
Repeat this process until the add water light is indicated.
Let brewer stand for at least 4 hours while still on.
Discard any residual vinegar in the resevoir and rinse thorughly.
AFTER approx 4 hours...fill resevoir with water.
RINSE:
PLace a large mug on the drip plate and water brew cycle. Pour the contents of the mug into the sink.
REPEAT this brew process until the add water light is indicated.
YOU MAY NEED TO REPEAT THIS "RINSE" PROCESS if you notice any residual taste.

Dishwasher does not clean tea stains from teacups- we have tried a variety of soaps and have used sani-clean. Machine is only one month old- new fully integrated model.


Method #1

  • Wet a cloth then rub the inside of the mug with baking soda. If the stains are stubborn, soak overnight in hot water and baking soda.

Method #2

  • Soak the mug in bleach OR vinegar for several hours or overnight.

Method #3

  • Fill mug with boiling water, add two spoonfuls of dishwasher detergent then soak overnight.

Method #4

  • Try a paste of corn starch and vinegar, apply and let sit for a few minutes then scrub away.

Method #5

  • Drop two denture tablets in the mug, pour hot water over top then soak overnight.

After soaking mugs and removing the stains, rinse and wash very well before using-especially when using the bleach method.

The water is still soapy after many rinses. I am using very little soap


I am having the identical problem with a Maytag washer! The first 2 or 3 rinses are effective somewhat, (but not like the Whirlpool I had for 22 years) and I think, "one more for fabric softener"---but suddenly I have a full inch of bubbly white, white, very soapy suds! Picture half a washer of water with a cup of tide! It's that soapy and I cannot figure out where the soap is coming from! Tonight, I had not even used a regular soapy detergent in the previous 15 cycles, having switched to an eco detergent from Costco and used little. I even ran a few cycles with no laundry and no detergent--no soap then!

Btw, the washer has only cold water rinses--I had not noticed the tiny print on the front of the washer--or I'd never have bought it. We learned in fabric class that icy cold water (it's snow melt here in Oregon) shocks fabric as badly as hot water, and it fails to get soap out as well. And everything comes out scratchy stiff like cardboard, and hurts my face--skin even peeled before I began opening lid to check on rinse cycle. I got rashes and dry skin from all the soap and ice water...until I began doing 7 or 8 rinse cycles on the items like washclothes, towels etc. Clothing gets hardly any soap, or I hand wash it now--am exhausted and want new machine! Can't sell this junk tho.

Anyway, so the way I rinse with warm or cool (not melted snow) water is I stop the washer and start over the wash cycle to get warmer water for the rinse. Then, I move the dial to extra rinse cycle for the rest of the rinse, after the water has filled, so it cannot go on to do an ice water rinse after competing the "wash" cycle that's really a rinse cycle with no soap.

I would hurt the person who designed this washer! It seems to add soapy water back into the rinse on the 4th rinse cycle! Sounds bizarre, but I always think that everything is finally rinsed ok and one more with a little fabric softener will do it, but when I look inside to add the downey, there's an inch of suds on top! I don't have suds like that on my wash cycles! It's bizarre...I've wondered if neighbor's suds are coming in, or am I haunted?

Last week, I hand-rinsed my washcloths and kitchen towels and put them in washer for the spin cycle, at end of the rinse cycle, just to get water out of them for dryer.... To my dismay, the spray of water while spinning (have no idea why washers add icy snow melt to my warm rinsed laundry during the final spin but they all do, you can hear the spray) was soapier than my original wash cycle--which has a teensy bit of suds which is gone in a minute or 2! Honestly, my washcloths etc were fully soapy again! I'd rinsed them so well that immersing them in warm water left the water clear and clean, but after the spray, they were just as soapy as after the earlier rinse cycles that had the inch of suds... I had to take everything out and spend another hour hand rinsing and wringing befor the dryer....

I have taken to using pint-sized tupperware to get the suds off the top rather than letting it go into the laundry or washer. I skim it out and put it down the kitchen sink. It's so soapy I'd have to do dozens of rinse cycles to rinse it out, so I skim it out manually. So new soap must keep getting into the washer! It also does not seem to matter whether the wash is full or half. Tonight the previous rinse cycle had been full, and pretty clean. But when I o;pened the next one to add fabric softener, it was only half full of water, and an inch or soap suds. I had wondered if the soap was outside the basket, and came in through the holes, once water got that high, but no. Does not matter. And I had wondered if it was caused by suction from stopping the rinse cycle during spin...but I went load after load for 10 days, never stopping a cycle early and it still put all that soap in the 4th rinse cycle. Or in the 3 cycle's spin at the end of rinse, when it sprays water on the spinning laundry.... This is a horror. Maytag ignores my emails. The handyman says new washers are terrible and wants nothing to do with it. I wish I'd paid whatever it took to fix my old whirlpool. 22 years and never an issue ever, never more than 3 rinses and then only a 3d because I'd used double soap to get out dirt from gardening or road trips like Santa Fe in the winter when shih tzus got covered with red clay dirt used on snow and ice--that stuff is lethal! Normally I added fabric softener on 2d rinse cycle and things were so clean. Now things are not clean, come out ripped, or with pilling like they aged 10 years in one night. So I handwash anything I want to keep nice. Washcloths are getting frayed, towels look bleached or faded....and I am relating to my grandmothers on wash day. Sorry it's just more problems not solutions.

LG washer uses so little water, clothes aren't even damp and not clean


You will need to have a qualified LG technician come out and see what the problem is.  You may have a water level switch issue.

Damaging clothes


How long is the gentle cycle?. I prefer to make my own delicate cycle. I let the machine fill, agitate about 1 min. then turn off and let soak about 15 - 20 min. Make the machine pump out and start spin very briefly. stop machine. let fill up again and repeat to rinse. Don't let agitate for more than 3 or 4 min total wash and rinse don't let spin completely.
