Re: Clothes wet and soapy after cycle compleded ,mostly...

Eiterh your machine is not spining properley or you simply need to clear out your drain filter.... or it could be the pump im thinking your filters is slightly blocked..

fill the machine with water and lower the waste pipe to ground level and if the water trickles out slowly then its a blockage if not then its the pump...

if its not the pump then its the carbon brushes on the motor....

follow this procedure.. hope it helps any problems let us know

Clothes come out musty

I would put in some bleach and clothes that can handle it without damage and run a wash cycle. Leave the door open when you are done using the machine, or at least un-latched. There are commercial products, but bleach will do the same thing. You have stuff growing on the gizzards inside the drum, and bleach will likely kill them. They like dark & humid places.. guess what... that's your washer with the door kept latched.

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 door won't open after a cycle...and all the clothes are soaking wet..even after 2 spin cycles it still has a lot of (soapy) water at the bottom..Help!!

the most common problem is a blocked or restricted drain pump.You can use a wet/dry Shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove all the water.
Once the water is removed then your door should unlck and you can remove all the clothes.
after that you need to look at your drain pump remove the hoses be sure to check the hose that comes down from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump and look for any obstruction also check your drain pump inside there could be something stuck in it.

Doesnt seem to be cleaning good. should i not be putting so many clothes in it? should I use more soap? I feel like the clothes barely get wet!

These washers use very little water. (about 2 inches in the bottom of the wash tub) The actual amount used will vary based on the volume of clothes and the type. (snythetic clothes do not absorb much water, but put in a load of cotton towels, for example, and the clothes absorb the water, causing the water level to drop, and the machine will add more water to return the level to the set point, which usually takes a several short fills, over a couple minutes)
To see that the clothes are indeed wet, just pause the machine a few minutes into the cycle. The door will unlock, and you can feel how wet they are. When the cycle completes, these machines spin so much faster (about twice as fast as most top loading machines) that the clothes feel very dry. (thus reduced drying time, and additional energy savings) Because of the lower water usage (about 12 gallons vs. about 45 for a top loader) make sure you only use 1 to 2 (max) tablespoons of HE detergent per cycle, and only 1 teaspoon of fabric softner if you use it. (don't use fabric softner on towels) Using too much addatives will cause odor issues, and possible performance issues.

After final rinse and spin cycle clothes are still wet

I can't solve this but am having a similar problem. There is no water in the tub but the spin cycle does not get enough water out of the clothes and they're very wet. This causes the towels especially... to smell really bad. The tub is very loose. How can this be fixed.

Washing machine leaves clothes wet and soapy

most lightly the draining system is not working or not working effective enough,take the drain hose out at back lower till it is below bottom of the drum ,if water freely runs out ,there's a possible restriction in the pump impellor or pump has failed,if water doesnt flow freely out at a low level there is a blockage in pipe work

Beach towels sopping wet after machine done spinning

The washer will not proceed into high speed spin with just two large beach towels in the basket. The washer is detecting a out of balance condition, and remains in low speed spin. Solution? Try adding more items into the basket. With only two towels, there is not enough mass to balance the washer. With more clothing or towels, there is more items for the machine to balance, and reach full speed spin.

The only other thing that could cause this, would be if the water in the tub is not completely draining in the time allowed. This washe does not have a cleanout, and checking for an obtruction in the pump is difficult. I would go with the more clothes first, then see.
