Kenmore Series 70 Top Load Washer Direct Drive Model # 110.20722991 Serial# CL 1134809 Wet Clothes after Spin Cycle


many machine spin a full tub as they are pumping the water out
this helps to even out the washing load and reduce the unbalance situation
when the water is removed , the machine progresses the program to a high speed spin
call a technician as there may be a problem in the program board

Kenmore Series 70 Top Loading Washing Machine Model # 110.20722991 Serial# CL 1134809 Hello, Our washing machine is leaving our clothes soaking wet when finished. What could the problem be?


2 things are possible. Can you tell if the spin cycle is engaging? If the spin cycle is not engaging properly or very fast, then the water will not leave the clothes. less likely is that the machine is not draining the water away properly or fast enough.

Washer goes into spin cycle and will not spin out but it will agitate


Is it a front loader, top loader, what make ? Too many different types and makes to determine the fault. Have you checked to see if the cycle is on drip dry? If it is, the machine wont spin and leaves all the water in the clothes.

My Hotpoint wf000 1000 spin model won't spin. It goes through a full wash cycle, agitates fine, but just won't spin at the end of the wash. Any help appreciated.


Sorry if it may be too obvious, but have you checked the philtre? generally they stop spinning when it's stuffed... when you open it, make sure you have a mop and bucket handy, some water will come out!

Frigidaire washing machine (FTW3011KW0) runs through all cycles, agitates, pumps out water, but doesn't spin, nor does the motor attempt to spin during the spin cycle


Your main switch needs replaced. The motor that drives the switch operates because it goes through the other cycles, so the switch must be bad.

No problem just want to know if one can put clothes soaking in bucket into the machine and go straight to spin to get excess water out without going thru the whole washing process. Cheerz!


Hi - yes theres a few options start it on the final rinse and set your water level to low or auto sense then spin speed (this will add more water to stabilesde the spin cycle)

Could go direct to spin as well but you will need to adjust the clothing proper prior to starting of the cycle..

Every cycle on the washing machine works but when it goes to spin it doesn't spin and leaves clothes water logged


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Your motor drive controls the spinning, agitation, and draining. You need to check that first.

The washing machine goes through the whole cycle but the machine will not do the spin cycle and I think the agitator has a hard time moving?


Hi,
If you find this check whether the machine pump out the water from the unit listen for the humming sound from the motor if you found the humming sound means your spinning coil is defective kindly replace the motor

Does washer drain before the spin cycle starts?


Normally yes. There are around 12 to 20 gallons of water in the tub after the wash cycle, which will be anywhere from 63 to 110 pounds of weight in addition to the weight of the clothes. For the machine to start the spin cycle to remove this water would place a heavy load on the motor, gearcase, pullys, belts, gears, ect. With the water drained, the load is lighter, and much easier to start spinning the excess water out of the clothes. The normal cycles are: Fill, Agitate, Drain, Spin, Rinse Fill, Agitate for rinse, Drain, Spin Cycle and off. Imagine trying to spin a 5 gallon bucket of water over your head, full of water, and then empty. Which one do you think would be easier to do? And safer for you.
