Press the stop button. Or, remove the wet laundry and let it finish the self clean cycle.

SOURCE: spinning cycle

Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

The most common cause of machines stopping mid cycle is not draining. Your machine should have a filter behind the kick plate at the bottom.
If this is not the case please post back for further assistance.

SOURCE: won't drain in last cycle

Hi just read your posting.Now can you confirm the model number please.Please ;look underneath the machine to the front right and you should see a pump with a red or black fan attached.Turn this fan clockwise and anticlockwise a few times to hopefully loosen the pump if it is jammed.If the fan turns freely then put it back on its feet and start a spin cycle to see if it drains the water.Please reply with additional information on the questions and to tell me if you have the pump with the fan or if it is not draining or if it still is not draining.

SOURCE: Kenmore washing machine spin cycle is not working

It appears your timer/controller or pressure switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

How do I fix my spin cycle the clothes are still really wet it spins but the clothes are still wet


Hi Russell, Before you check out the link below read how To perform the Master Reset, carefully unplug the washing machine from the power outlet and leave it unplugged for one minute. After one minute is up, plug the washer cord back into the wall. Next, open and close the door of the washing machine 6 times within 12 seconds to send a "reset" signal to all the components. (This is a common fix that many appliance repair mechanics use - it works on about 50% of all washing machines.) Once the reset has been completed set the washer to do a small load with no clothes in the washer. See if the washer goes through with the cycle as normal. If the washer performs correctly, then it has been reset and is fixed. If not refer to more troubleshooting techniques and causes of problems below.
If that did not solve the problem then it may be the "Lid Switch". Top loading washing machines that have a faulty lid switch will not turn the agitator and the spin cycle will not start. However on some washing machine models it will still agitate but not spin. To properly check this you must remove the lid switch.

I accidentally set cycle to Self Clean instead of Spin & Drain and pushed Start button. Trying to reset to correct cycle. Have just moved and don't have manual on hand.


Most machines will reset if you press the stop button or otherwise end the cycle. If all else fails, un-plug the machine, wait a few minutes and plug it in. Otherwise, just let the Self Clean cycle finish.

Every so often, all the water is not draining at the end of the cycle. The clothes are left clean but soaking wet.

After the spin cycle, my clothes are still sopping wet.


Yes, you are on the right track. Drain maybe clogged. Under the front door is a panel with 3 screws, remove the panel; then unscrew the white looking plug, it may be hard to turn if there is a bunch of **** in drain. be prepared to get wet. Once you have cleaned this out, turn the cycle knob to any position but spin, then unplug washer for at least 30 seconds, this will reset the control board.
Good Luck!

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Some problems that can occur with your top-loading washing machine are:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
It won't drain
It doesn't spin
It doesn't agitate
It's noisy
It leaks
It's off balance
There's no hot water
There's no cold water
It's slow to fill
There's no water at all
The clothes are wet after spinning
The cycle doesn't advance
There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
It's overfilling
It's underfilling
The water temperature is incorrect


Hope this may help;
