This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Assuming that the washer spins, It sounds as if your pump is blocked or broken.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet and gain access to the pump.

Check the hoses to and from the pump for obstructions and check that the pump itself will turn.

Hi can you tell me which programme is the short wash and spin please


I think I have the same type of washing machine as you do. Wash is when all the clothes get agitated or mixed with soap and water (ever look in there when its washing? the water can get pretty gross looking!) So in my washer, the rinse cycle is when all that gross water is drained, and the washer spins while spraying clean water over the clothes to get rid of the dirty water and soap. I think mine does this 5 or 6 times in the cycle. Next is the spin cycle, which is when the washer spins REALLY fast to **** as much water out of the clothes as possible, so that the clothes aren't sopping wet when you put them in the dryer.

It sounds like your mom has a newer washing machine, probably a front load one, and they do seem to keep using clean water, instead of just agitating the clothes in dirty water.

My (gallery) front load is making my load dirty after the wash. I noticed that if I wash in cold water is not as bad as when I wash with warm/hot water.


Sounds like deposits or dirt coming from hot water tank or line running to washer.Turn off water supplies to washer and remove the hoses from the back to see if the filters/strainers in each port are dirty.If not add a little CLR to the washer and let it run a cycle.Hope this helps.Wouldnt hurt to check the drain strainer either on the bottom of the wassher if you remove the little access panel, might be something in there making water dirty

Miele Dishwasher G841 - Water not draining after wash cycle


If you suspect the dish washer, try discharging the drain in a bucket. After the drain cycle check the wash tub. If water is still left, you have to clean the drain filter attached to the bottom. Refer user guide.

The final drain end of the dish washer where you discharge, the fixing junction has to be cleaned, incase it is clogged.

Whirpool Duet - Soap not getting into wash cycle


O.K. Is the water draining out properly? If the filter is blocked then your washing will be churning in dirty water as the machine will drain for a maximum time then rinse etc. in the used water.

Washer will not start washing cycle. Machine hums like the dryer


Check the drain for clog. If the drain is dirty, the washer won't fill, rinse, or drain.

Sweaty gym-sock smell from washer


Hello barbaracrowl,
From your description, it sounds like the drain system is running back into your washer and you are getting dirty water back into it which in turn causes a build up of mold etc.. I would evaluate the drain system first to make sure you have a water trap and no restrictions that would cause backflow. I would also cycle it on the hottest setting and use a cup or two of white vinegar in lieu of detergent. You may also consider wiping down all surfaces that have that gunk buildup with white vinegar too. When complete.. try cycling an empty washer and open it to periodically examine the water itself for any residue or scum.. To eliminate any backflow after all these cycles are run, you could drain it into a nearby sink or shower stall or rubber barrel just to make sure you aren't getting any backstreaming dirty water. Let me know how it works out or what you find and if my suggestions don't help.. I have a few other ideas that may help you.. BTW: use the lowest wash load setting for all tests and the hottest..
Regards and Good Luck,
Rick

Admiral Washer smells like mildew


yes it could . If you are trying to pump the water 7 feet or more above the floor then it will at the end of the cycle get air into the drain hose causing cavatation, the result when the machines stops is the water running back down the drain hose back into the tub and that is what causes the musty smell.
Lower the drain if possible
