Water remains in tub after spin cycle

Water remains in tub after cycle is finished. It can not be seen as it is below the tub but you can hear it sloshing around as it stops. The tub has a bad odor and I have poured bleach in it and let it sit for awhile, fill tub and then spin it out. Tub smells better after that. Problem is that I know that if I don't do this after every wash that the old dirty/smelly water is mixed in with each new load. Is this normal?

    how old is the washer? there is a pump that should take all the water away after it spins; sometimes it sits there a makes a noise; that is the pump taking the water out. Does it sit there a make a noise and you think it may be stuck or does it just shut off and is finished?

Hi, a small amount of water in the tub is normal, between the inner and outer drum. As long as it's below the inner drum you're ok. If it's a front load this is a common smell. Just make sure you dry the rubber seal and leave the door open a little to allow air to circulate through the washer.

Have you tried to clean the drain hose on the back of the washer? It may have build up inside that you are loosening up by using bleach.

Kenmore 80 series washer model 110 doesn't fully drain when cycle complete


With the lid open, try to turn tub by hand. If you can you may have a bad clutch. If you hear the washer agitating at the begining of the cycle without any water and filling at the end of the cycle, replace the ATC switch. Try spin cycle and open the lid, if you don't see the tub turning, but hear the motor, check motor coupler, or if it never spins after you close lid, check lid switch. These are the most common solutions to this complaint.

Is it normal to have substantial amount water remaining in the washer after final spin?


Hey friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

It is normal to have water in the tub after your Frigidaire washer has completed the final spin cycle. The water that is in the tub is there to help prime the pump. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt

That is normal. The balance ring has liquid in it. # 327
On these machines the tub is suspended with 4 metal rods. The lateral movement is controls by 4 straps. When these stretch the tub gets loose and water slings out the washer. Seen it.

Will not spin regularly


The water should be pumped out in a short time just before the spin cycle begins. Do you hear the pump motor running? Check the drain hoses to and from the water pump for kinking. If ok, check for a stray sock or something that blocks the drain port in the bottom of the outer tub. If also ok, check the plastic pump impeller itself for sheared splines which couple it to the motor shaft. If the motor turns, but impeller doesn't, replace the pump mechanism. If still under warranty, take advantage. Hope this helps!

Washer has water remaining in the tub after it finishes, happens intermitantly. Some times, after washer is off, you can hear water trickling & when you open the door, water is trickling down from the...


Sounds like you may have a bad water valve. Go to http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=mah6500&searchTerm=img_54050&RefineSearch=0&imgMfg=Maytag&Page=2 and the water valve will be #14. You can check to see if this is the problem by running a load. After the machine is finnished adding water in the rince cycle, turn the water off to the machine. Let it finnish spinning. Then look to see if the water is still coming in. When a water valve goes bad it can act funny in many differant ways. Your sonds like it may have trash in it that allows it to leak water some of the time. Good luck

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
