SOURCE: water leaking from top

That's an easy one... There is something caught in your diverter valve, keeping it partly open in spin, so that when the water is supposed to be draining out the drain hose, some of it is gettng back up to the recirculator hose, spilling onto the spining tub and then out onto the floor...

IWL16 leaves black specs on clothes

there could be something stuck in the machine between the two bowls. lifting the lid, removing the ring, agitator and inner bowl will easily check this. if the machine has become loud on spin, and the leak is actually from the bottom (more likely) then it could need seals and bearings replaced. don't run it too much more while leaking, electricity and water don't mix XD

Our ultimate care II washer is leaking. I'm not

could be the tub seals,fill it up with water,put it on spin and look up where the trainy goes into the tub,if it's leaking there you have to decide if you wanna repair it or get a new washer.also it could be coming out of the pump when it drains,you need to just get in there with a light and check it out,remove the two screws in the back of the top console,the console is on hindges,lift it up and remove the two clips that hold the frame to the back,remove the lid switch wires and pull the frame up and forwards to remove it,now get a piece of wire and stick it in the harness where the lid switch goes,there are three holes plug the piece of wire in the outside holes and this will let you put the washer into spin cycle,look and see where the water is leaking from,could be leaking from the drain hose too but you gotta get in there and look,let me know if you need any more help

The washing machine doesn't come on when switched on at power point. No lights or sound at all. The fuse to the power point is all good. Machine was working fine the last wash load. Tashina

It doesn't work at all If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

No power
Lid switch
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
check out this.

Washer will wash and drain but not spin

Sounds like the lid switch is not working.It is a safety feature to prevent the washer from spinning if the lid is open.If you look a the lid,you will see a small point that sticks out,The switch is locate under the rim,right where that point would contact with lid closed.

Amana NTW5245TQ1 Topload washer....water draining out from basket...

Unfortuneately, I think you have two seperate problems. Fortuneately, this is easy to verify. As far as the not spinning, it is generally caused by loose hinge screws on the lid. There is a arm that sticks off the back of the hinge to press on your lid switch. If the screws are loose, the arm generally wont be able to press the switch. Just tightening ther screws on the right and left hand sides of the lid corrects this. You can verify this has corrected the problem by setting the washer to spin without adding any water. As far as the leaking. Well, there are multiple sources for this, but the most common is the water pump. To verify this, unplug your unit and pull it out from the wall. Tilt the top of the washer back towards the wall until it rests by itself at about a 45 degree angle. You are looking for a white peice of plastic towards the bottom front of the machine. There will be 2 black hoses going into it. run your finger across the front side of it feeling for bumps. You may have had something get lodged in there and poke a hole. If you can not find any moisture on the pump (yes it can leak from the hoses of back of the pump also)look for any signs of water having leaked. (you generally get water spots just like in your dishwasher when you don't use a rinse agent). If you still can't see anything, tilt the unit back forward and add 1 cup of water to the machine. Tilt it back again and see if it's leaking. Continue adding water until you can get your leak then trace the water back. However, if you do in fact have a bad pump, they are availible from local appliance parts suppliers (in the phone book) or on-line from the maunufacture. Any troubles or other problems? Drop me a line back. Otherwise,

Kenmore washer will do everyything but final rinse

This is a very typical symptom of a lid switch that is either broken or has come loose. If your lid switch is mounted on the right hand side of the lid, make sure the mounting screws are tight and the lid strike is in place (this is a plastic piece on the lid that activates the switch when closed). If your lid switch is on the left hand side in the rear under the washer rim (out of view), you may have to adjust the rod that activates it. For instructions on how to access the lid switch and/or replace it, click on the following link:

The lid switch is bad on your washer. Either replace it or bypass it.
