Disconnect power
Check that the filter is not clogged,
open the bottom panel ( 3 screws on bottom front lip)
next open the large screw-on filter in center.
it will dump water. so have pans, towels,newspaper
Remove any debris and see that the pump impellers move freely.
Reassemble and try again. panel must be replaced as it has a safety switch.

Why does my whirlpool model WTW57ESVW1 starts to rinse toward the end of the spin cycle?

The rinse is supposed to start during the's what removes most of the soap from your clothing! The spin forces the water through the clothes, flushing all but a small amount of the detergent away. The rinse cycle itself is more to remove solid debris that may have become trapped in the folds of cloth. It does so by floating and agitating the clothes.

The quick wash cycle is only for things that aren't soiled much, that you need to be done fast. It's not for everyday washing, just for things that maybe need no more than a freshening up. It makes it faster by cutting corners.

I have a Whirlpool LHA 5700 old school washer. It works great. It wash clothes with no problems. It just stop spinning the water out tub and clothes. The water drains as far as it can but that's it. W

Don't know the model but with the old basics with electric motor drive as a 1st step always check for broken wires to the motor as they flop around a fair bit and eventually break them or corrode them from water and washing detergents.

Ge washing machine fills up with water on spin cycle

Sounds like the timer is screwed... Sending out the wrong signals and the dryer is doing the rinse cycle when it should just be the spin cycle. Do t know what your timer looks like in that washer but most now days look like the picture. 11_11_2013_2_52_52_am.png

No problem just want to know if one can put clothes soaking in bucket into the machine and go straight to spin to get excess water out without going thru the whole washing process. Cheerz!

Hi - yes theres a few options start it on the final rinse and set your water level to low or auto sense then spin speed (this will add more water to stabilesde the spin cycle)

Could go direct to spin as well but you will need to adjust the clothing proper prior to starting of the cycle..

Whirlpool washer won't rinse or spin w/o manually turning knob

It is most likely that you have a faulty water inlet valve. Some machines have a seperate valve for rinse to flush in a fabric softener I suspect that your detergent flushing valve is faulty.....Good luck Nomess

Clothes are not completely rinsed (they're soaking wet) at very end of spin cycle.

Try to fill minimum water level in your machine with out adding detergent or clothes and complete cycle and see if it is any watter inside. Could be a water pump.

After the spin cycle runs the clothes are still soaking wet

I had that problem at one time with my old washer and what it ended up being was the Washer Dog Agitators were broken and causing the it to slip and not spin correctly. I would try checking the Dog Agitators.
Here's A picture of a typical top-load washer breakdown to show you where they are located --->Here<---
I hope this helps. If that is the problem I bought mine at Sears for about $8, normally in stock item.

LG front load washer/ clothes still wet after final spin

The heavy jacket prevented the washer from spinning at a rapid pace, so I added a heavy bathrobe to absorb some of the water and to balance the load. The washer then spun very quickly and drained out all the water.

While the washer drains and spins, new water comes in

Drain hose must be at least 30 inchs above the floor.

Clothes come out soaked

You water is not being pumped out when the spin is on; this is due to the outlet filter being blocked. Find out where this is from your users'manual and clean it out. This is to be done periodically according to your usage.
