Clean your water inlet filters, and refit carefully. Clean all inlet screens, ones in hose as well as machine inlet.

Washer does not have enough water, and when it spins it doesnt spin enough to get all the water out of the clothes.


a few things to try... the water fill pipe that feeds the machine, check the tap at the end to make sure its on full, if it is then turn water off and unscrew pipe from rear of machine and see if connection on machine is blocked or clogged. then usually located at front of machine at the bottom, unscrew the filter to see if its blocked with small change ( usual suspect ) and try.

Not enough water to wet all the clothes.


Either the water level switch has bad calibration or the water level tube has lost its air seal and needs to be refitted and air locked. If you do not know how to go about these tasks, call someone with experience. Goodluck, Macgivor

When i spin wash tub wigth my hand i can hear lots of water still in the machine under neath the wash basin


That is becouse most washing machines are made up of an inside drum where your clothes are washed and an outside durm that catches the water when the washer spins the water out of the washed clothes. A pump is connected to the bottom of the outside drum. If the pump fails, the water would not get pumped to the drain and would collect in the outside drum.

My washer doesn't get enough water in it to wash properally.There isn't a water level knob on the washer.Its a frontloading whirlpool.


There is most likely nothing wrong with the washer. Front load washers will only fill about 2 inches of water in the tub. As the load starts to tumble, water is absorbed into the clothes, causing the water level to drop. The machine senses this and adds more water. The process continues until the water level stabilizes. (thus no need for a water level switch) Your clothes should get wet, but you will little if any water. If you use a gentle cycle you will get slightly more water, as the washers tumble at the same speed for all cycles, but give a more gentile wash if there is more water in the drum.
Also,..... remember because you have so little water in a front load washer (compared to most all top loader models) you want to use only 1 to 2 (max) tablespoons of HE detergent per load!

My washer (Whirlpool StyleMaster 907675) is leaking into the wash basin (inside where the clothes are placed)constantly, without any drainage. This is when the machine is off, and it simply drips water...


This usually indicates that there is a problem with the inlet water valve. This can only be corrected by replacing the valve. It is attached to the plastic hose connections on the inside of the washer.

A quick temporary fix is to shut the main valves off behind the washer when it is not in use. This may be a little inconvenient until the problem is fixed. It will still leak a little but not enough to worry about.

The valve itself is not too expensive is should cost between $10 and $35. The labour charge will be what is standard in your area. Possibly around $100. About 1 hour labour.

Suggestion: Check the wall inlet to see if water comes freely; then check if the inlet valves behind your machine to see they are not clogged. Best that u open the valve full before you begin your wash. The water coming 3 inches/door is normal. Dont try opening the door until after you hear a click or aft 2 or three minutes aft wash cycle completes.
