Question about Dryers

Hi! Our LG wft653a washing machine is not completing its spin cycle. ie the clothes are still fairly wet and all seem to be piling up on one side of the machine. It then stops. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There is a good chance that the empty cycle isn't completing (Because of a blocked filter) This will leave the clothes wet, and because they are heavier than they should be, this will cause a tendancy to clump together in the way you have described. I don't know the model specifically, but there is probably a filter door on the front of the machine, low down and about the size of the fuel cap on your car. Open this (with the machine empty!.. and expect a little water leakage, so have a towel ready to mop up). Check & clean the filter. If it was clogged, there is a good chance a clean out will solve all your problems. You need to remember to do this every couple of months or so if it's not something that you do regularly already. Hope this helps.

Soaking wet clothes after spin cycle


Check and choose a longer spin cycle and see if the fault changes. If so the SPIN cycle is too less or there is less action or speed in the cycle, check the motor speed, check the capacitor to the motor, the spindle friction - if so reset the spindle and drive.

Washing machine 11 years old is jumping on the wash cycles. EG instead of taking 25 mins its taking 10 mins to complete -clothes coming out wet unless manually turn to spin again


It is possible that the program is not running to the designed settings and so the program seems to skip the cycle.
The clothes come out wet because the spin cycle is not activated in the set program. Hence the program controller needs a check.

Kenmore warsher, Model num 110.14202300, not drain or spin


The clothes too wet after spin cycle tells me that the water ump is functioning. If it wasn't, there would still be lots of water in the machine when the cycle ended. These Kenmores have the water pump mounted on one side of the electric drive motor and the transmission, drive shaft, and agitator on the other side. The transmission is fastened to the motor by a "coupler", a three piece assy that often breaks. This common failure allows the machine to complete a cycle, however, because of the broken coupler, there is no drive to the tub and no spin or agitate. The clothes seem wet because the spin motion is supposed to provide the force to extract the excess moisture. Leave the lid open and verify that there is no agitate or spin.(During spin cycle use a pen to press down on the safety interlock, a small opening on the the of the machine, toollow the unit to spin with the lid open). If you verify this, flip the machine over and locate the coulper on one side of the motor. One side will be cracked along the shaft. Sears parts stores carry the coupler in stock. ($18.50) Hope this helps.

Washer wil not spin or drain out after cycle completed


sounds like drain is plugged. this is a fairly easy fix,and you actually get paid to do it. unscrew the bottom panel of your washer should be 3 screws on the very bottom then you will see a white plug that is about 2 1/2" unscrew it (make sure you have a bowl under it water will leak ) and pull it out. this is where you get paid you will find all kinds of change and junk just clean it out reinstall and your clothes will be a lot drier after the spin cycle

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.

Machine not spinning due to uneven load balance although clothes are loaded evenly initially


I suggest you stick to the maximum load capacity (or less) of the machine; and not over-load the machine with clothes.

Clothes too wet


Watch the washing machine go through its complete spin cycle.(It could have a filter in the pump,check for water flow coming out of the drain. Make sure the washing machine is fully leveled with a square. make sure you put fairly big loads to keep it balanced. If the washing comes out wet on the final spin ,add some more garments and then put it on spin again as the w/m might be going out of balance. Under the work bench on top some times there is a spring to adjust the tension. about every five or six years the motor brushes need changing.
