Hi, Most washers have a balance ring on the tub. It will sound like water is still in machine but it is ok. If you drain hose comes out of the top of the back wall on your washer, it could hold water also.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I canassist you further.

Our washing machine is being placed in storage, but we can still hear water in the bottom of the machine (not in the tub). Is this normal? It seems like we should get all the water out before storin


If its a front loader there is liquid inside the drum put there by the manufacturer for balance and stability when the machine is running, that's probably the water sound you hear when you move it around.

How do I fix a washing machine that doesn't fill with water, but spins and drains? Water enters the detergent holder, but doesn't seem to make it to the tub. Draining can be heard as well, even though


Hum for one a front load H.E washer should not be having very much suds as u claim it had. Are u aware the front loads are made to use very little soap and if u use to much soap hence alot of suds, ur SUDS SENSOR will act up and can shut down any wash cycle. a trick is to run just water and some vinagar trough a couple loads if u can get to wash at all. Another issue u may have is a plugged line somewhere. or loose unconnected water hose line hence the water on the ground effect. u may want to check ur flow line from the entry into the tub where the water at the moment I cant recall the name of the gadget but it can get clogged or damaged and hinder the water from entering the tub

Describe your Kenmore 24032 \ 24036 Top Load


MAke sure that the cothes are not unbalancing the tub. Iv seen this happen where the clothes are unbalancing the tub and it moving around and the when the water for the rinse is coming out its not getting in the tub its splashing on the top of the tub ring due the the unbalanced spin. does this happen when you wash a heavy load? do you notice it not doing that when you washer a light load?

Two speed auto washer - found water all over floor - no leaks on any hoses or drain. Wife said last load was unbalanced and machine was rocking around bad. Tub seems very wobbly to me when I move it...


having a very unbalanced load can cause the water to go over . yes the tubs are supposed to be able to move around some.run a load with no clothes in it if it leaks then you may have a more serious problem

Made a loud noise and drum stopped moving


the tub seal lets go water will weep into the tub bearing. This will rust the basket shaft and normally wreck the tub bearing. Once the bearings starts to get worn enough it usually gets very noisy. The tub bearing is pressed onto the outer back half of the tub shell assembly. Normally need to replace the inner basket/shaft assembly and the outer shell with the tub bearing.
Sometimes the inner basket support will crack, this can give an clicking or banging noise as well.

Pictures of this job...
A sure indication was the brown junk/gookus leaking out if the rear bearing area and the belt has spewed it around in the drum that the rear bearing and seal was bad...
Picture1 - Picture2
The whole outer shell and basket come out to do this repair....what bad bearing and rusted shaft looked like...
Picture1 - Picture2 - Picture3
I had to remove the back panel. Undo the pump hose & water level hose, remove the 2 shocks, remove the motor, undo the front boot from the outer panel and remove the 2 springs to lift the whole assembly out from the back to work on it.

When the wash cycle is over, there seems to be a large amount of water still in the washer. Is this normal? When you turn the tub by hand, you can hear the tub moving through water.

Washer and Dryer


there will always be water inside he machine(between the tubs, and in the hoses, but no so much to add that much weight so you cant move it, i would look to see of perhaps a levevling leg has hit the floor not allowing you to slide easily.

Leak


It sounds like you have a leak somewhere around the door bellow. This is the rubber boot that seals the wash tub to the door frame. Pull the folds back and inspect around the entire perimeter of the rubber. You could have a small rip or tear somewhere. There are a series of small holes in the bottom of the bellow that are supposed to be there. This is the allow any standing water to drain back into the wash tub. If you cannot find any obvious signs of leaks, remove the lower panel under the door. This is accomplished by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Start the washer on a normal wash and watch for any leaks. If the door bellow leaks, the front counterweight (usually a concrete block) will begin to get wet and drip. This could also be an indication of the bellow clamp around the wash tub being loose. If the leak starts to pool under the washer and run out the front, this is usually an indication of a drain pump leak or drain line leak. Please inspect the washer with the panel removed and the washer on a load and post back and let me know. Go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature for a quicker response. I hope this helps you.

PS One other item. On the left hand side of the door bellow is the a dispenser tube that penetrates through the bellow and allows water to enter the wash tub. Sometimes the dispenser tube is not seated all the way into the rubber (should be seated past the flange) and it will dispense water behind the rubber instead of into the wash tub. Just something else to consider...
