Water leaks and spin cycle not working properly

    No, there is no water in the tub. The clothes feel sudsy and not completely spun out. I ran the spin cycle over and it resulted the same. Honestly, this is the second time it has happened. Last night, my husband moved the washer forward to verify the connections - All okay, however, the floor was charcoal, black. We will take a good look on the inside this week-end. Will keep you posted. Take care.

Not knowing what brand or model makes it difficult to diagnose. In general the charcoal black might be a belt disintergrating. as fthe leak it could be coming from anywhere, bad seal, bad pump, hole in a hose, etc. with more info i can probably be a little more specific

Water leaking from the bottom usually indicates either a bad hose , bad hose connection to the pump or a leaking pump. Also sounds like the machine is not spinning out. Is there water left in the tub at the end of the cycle?

Items not dry enough after spin cycle, some water remains in machine


This is normal. It depends on a number of factors, including the type and volume of clothing you are trying to wash. Usually, it is not a machine issue.

Machine won't spin out the water in the clothes,has to be wrung by hand..What would you think the part is that's holding this up?


Check the washer lid safety switch . Sounds like it is a simple switch for when you close the lid it allows to spin only when lid is closed. It is a safety switch for spinning to not operated if lid is open durring spinning cycle. It's maybe a 20 dollar part and easy install.

Hi,
Following will be the causes for water not draining properly

1.There is a motor/Pump which operates to to drain the water check whether that motor is working.

2.Check filter and clean it

3.Check the drain pipeline whether it clear

4.Check the inlet valve of the machine Sometimes the drain works properly but the inlet solenoid valve will not hold and the water keeps coming in and fills the drum

Thank You

Neptune MLG2000A doesn't drain completely and has moldy smell


You need to clean the stationary "brush" that collects lint and debris from the water during the cycle. The brush can be seen around the tub directly touching it along the bottom/front of the device. Right were I pour my detergent in, after the cloths are in there. To remove the debris I use a bottle brush. You can expect to use trial and error for your attempts. As far as the water being left.... My device has always left water in the bowl. I periodically just run a cycle with no cloths and bleach...HOT.....Mine is not spinning at the moment...again....I think its another call to the local dealer....AGAIN....

My clothes are always soaking and the machine always has water in the bottom i take the filter out and drain it at the bottom but it always fills up again


When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: 

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. 

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Clothes are still soaking wet after spin cycle


But is the washer empty, if there is still some water in it, there could be something in the drain line,
if all the water is gone, then it sounds like the washer is not reaching the full speed of the spin cycle.

Unless someone can remove the drain line and check the pump, and check the clutch of the machine,
I am sorry to say you should call an appliance person and have them make a service call.

If you where to post the model # of the washer, someone could look at the manual of it and see
how the washer works and what the pump is. I hope it is a simple fix for you.
