There are a couple of things that I would like you to try. First, I would like you to check your water pressure, especially on the cold water side, since cold water is what's used in the rinse. Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure the screens are clear of rust or debris. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference.

The next check is for a slow drain condition. Fill the washer to the maximum level and advance the timer to spin. Start timing how long it takes the water to be drained out. It should not exceed 90 seconds. If it does, check drain line for obstruction and the pump can also be checked. Hope this helped and sorry for your trouble. Best wishes.

Fluff on clothes


Some washing machines have a filter usually bottom right hand corner, you can clean this out.

They do say every once in a while to run the machine empty on a boil wash and add a little bleach or try some of these commercialised cleaners that remove limescale etc it cant do any harm.

Do this once or twice if its still bad the only thing i would suggest is to get a new one.

During the spin cycle it spins correctly until the last 2-3 minutes and then it just fluffs clothes


Some machines used a variable speed slow down process to avoid clothing damage, this removes the items from the outside of the drum where if the clothing was left for a length of time after the cycle has finished it could damage the fibres, this way the clothing is also easier to remove from the machine and promotes airflow over the items

Not heating


If you can hear the dryer start and operate but at end of cycle your clothes are wet then it is likely (assuming the heater is turning on) that the fluff collection on the condensor unit is blocking its operation.
Refer manual at this site and follow instructions on page 20.

How do I stop fluff cycles on kenmore elite dryer


There are two ways this can happen:

1. You set the timer to a cycle that activates this option
2. (If equipped) Turn the selector knob off on the control panel that you can activate this feature with. Every manufacturer calls it something different.

When the dryer is running it smells like charcol ligher fluid


Sometime recently there has been a petroleum product used in the house. Possibly an oil based paint, stain, varnish, adhesive or some form of cleaning product.

Anyone of these products or many others like them, contain a distillate of liquid. Check around the house.

Until that oil based product dries or cures, the odor and vapors will remain and so will the dryer smell.

At the end of the drying cycle, use the air fluff cycle to purge out the smell. Besure to return the selector on the dryer back to it's prior postition.

Clothes still wet aftre drying cycle over


It sounds as if the wash cycle isn't terminated by pumping the rinse water out and spinning to rid the clothing of most of the water.
Most dryers sense moisture but I think they all will have a maximum run-time to prevent possible fires if the programmer fails to shut them down at the end of the drying cycle.
I would watch the machine and when it started the drying cycle, I would shut it off and check for surplus water that hadn't been pumped out as it should have been.

Gray marks, streaks or smudges on clothing after a wash
cycle.
CONDITION:
CAUSE:
At the end of the cycle, the wash plate nutates for
approximately 30 seconds to fluff the clothing after the
final spin. The action of fluffing causes the outer wash
plate seal to rub against the stainless steel basket while
they are both relatively dry. This condition causes the gray
discoloration.
RESOLUTION:
An updated machine control, part number 8542693, is
now available. The updated control reduces the fluff time
from 30 seconds to 8 seconds, allowing the clothing to be
fluffed, without causing discoloration.
Gray marks or smudges can be washed out of clothing
after wiping down the basket. The consumer should use
the recommended amount of HE detergent and the hottest
water safe for the fabric or hand wash the garment under
running water. In either case, the fabric must be cleaned
prior to running through the dryer.
