Check that your drain hose is fully inserted into the wall/floor drain. then run an empty load with just water and watch it during the drain cycle to see if either the drain is backing up or if it's not fully connected at the back of the washer. if the drain is backing up you can try a drain sn ake available at most hardware stores and that will most likely clear it. If it's leaking at the connection at the back of the washer try to push it in fully or replace the hose altogether. It's not the water inlets because they always have pressure on them and would leak constantly. or you could have a cracked basket in which case you will be better to buy a new machine. cracked baskets don't happen very often though. And once in a blue moon it could be an off balance issue where its actually splashing out. Either way you need to spend some quality time with your washer and see why it's crying =]
Good luck!

My clothes are coming out dirty with lint build up from the washing machine- kelvinator smart drive 053, have undone and cleaned centre- is there a trap underneath anywhere that may be full or blocked?


9 WASH PERFORMANCE INFORMATION
9.1 Creasing
Creasing can be caused by over loading the washer or the dryer. Permanent Press or Delicate
cycles have been designed to minimise creasing as they use a lower spin speed. Do not leave wet clothes to sit in the washer or laundry basket.
9.2 Soiling
Soiling is the result of insufficient detergent for the load. White clothes are better washed
separately. Separate lightly and heavily soiled items, as clothes can pick up soil from dirty wash water. Cold water below 68oF / 20 oC does not wash effectively. Select the wash temperature according to soil type. For example, blood and mud are better washed in cold water, while sweat and oil based soil wash better in warmer water. Loads made up of articles of varying sizes will wash better (e.g. full loads of sheets may not wash that well). Hard water requires more detergent than soft water.
9.3 Linting
Wash lint givers (eg. towels, flannelette sheets) separately from lint collectors (eg. synthetic
fabrics). Over loading the washer can increase the likelihood of linting. Insufficient detergent for the load can increase linting as there will not be enough detergent to hold the lint in suspension. Over drying synthetic fabrics in a dryer can cause a build-up of static electricity and result in the fabrics attracting lint.
9.4 Detergent Residue
Over loading the washer can result in detergent residue being caught in the creases of the fabrics.
If this occurs, decrease the load size. Some detergents need to be pre-dissolved. Check the instructions for the detergent. Cold ambient temperatures, cold washes or short agitation times may not let the detergent dissolve properly. In these cases pre-dissolve the detergent. Overdosing of detergent can also cause residue when foam breaks down and will show as white specs on the clothing. Poor quality detergents can result in residue.
9.5 Black Marks on Clothes
A build up caused by the interaction of fabric softener and detergent (scrud) can flake off and mark
clothes. Do not use too much fabric softener, maximum 75cc. If this is a problem, it is recommended that the machine is periodically filled with hot water, plus 1-2 cups of dishwasher powder and left to soak.
9.6 Grey Marks on Clothes
Not enough detergent for the amount of soil on the clothes can result in grey marks on clothes. If
this is a problem it is recommended that the machine be periodically filled with hot water, plus detergent and left to soak.
9.7 Dye Transfer
Wash and dry non-colorfast clothes separately. Non colorfast clothes left sitting in a washer or
laundry basket can transfer dye to other clothes.
9.8 Tangling
Washing with too much water (i.e. under loading) can cause the clothes to tangle around each
other. Do not load the machine by wrapping clothes around the agitator.

My clothe come out very wet at the end of the wash cycle


If the pump is clogged and can't release all the water it won't go into final high spin. Remove lower cover and locate coin catch and unscrew it. Water will come out, so be ready. If it's full of stuff, this is probably the problem.

Shampooer leaves spots


If the spots are NOT at the center of the unit - you may have washed the brush roll. Older style shampooer brush rolls could retain a lot of water and it is all dirty in there. NEVER wash the brush. Just after you are done - raise the nozzle and let it spin freely for 10-15 seconds. It will be clean most of the time.

If you already did or if you will absolutely have to do it in the future - do not soak it. Set it vertically somewhere so water could drain and leave it to dry.

Do not make sudden moves while shampooing so the water does not spill from the tray.

If you oiled Kirby some time or sprayed WD40 somewhere - maybe it is coming out now (do not oil Kirby - it does not need that type of maintenance)

Hope this helps

GE Front Loading Washing Machine seems to be holding water....


The high speed spin of a front load washer should normally do a good job of getting squeezing out the water but if there is an oversudsing condition that makes it hard for the drain pump to operate then the suds and water will just stay there. First make sure there is no actual clog in the drain line then run a load with no soap or detergent and see what happens. It's always better to use a low suds detergent with this type of machine

Water leaking from wash machine


It is probably a seal that is on or near the bottom of the tub. Dirt and grim wears at this seal over time. The leak is slow so it is hard to visually see.
