If you rotate the tub by hand, you can hear water sloshing like it doesn't drain all the water after the last cycle. We use the washer at least once a day so it doesn't have time to mildew but shouldn't it drain all the water out?

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.
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.SiphoningIf
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 valveWater-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.
It is normal to have residual water in the drain lines and pump following a wash cycle. This is the low point of the drain cycle and gravity will ALWAYS cause some water to be there. As long as the water is not visible in the spin basket, you have nothing to worry about.
Some model washers also have a balance ring around the perimeter on top of the wash tub that is filled with fluid. This acts as a stabilizer to help keep the washer balanced during the spin cycle. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.
You have a bad water fill valve. Until you get it fixed shut water valves off at the wall so that you don't have a flood if the fill valve on the machine fails completely. Let me know if there is anything else I can Help you with. Ken
The pump cannot completely drain all the water out of washers. There will be some water left in the bottom of the tub that you can't see but here slosh around if you move the basket. If your clothes are not wet, this is probably normal.
if this issue is because you hear water in the machine when the tub spins......
thats normal, its called the balance ring
centrifical force, pushes the water in the lid, outward helping to use the sling weight, as a counter balance
its 100 percent normal to hear sloshing when turning the tub by hand
be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.
you may have blockage in the drain pipe several feet from washer. if you can run spin cycle with hose in different location ex. tub,sink or outdoors. if this works run long snake down washer drain pipe to clean gypsum residual.
If you can't see any water and just hear it, this is completely normal. This is a front load washer and has a special cover of the inner tub basket. This cover contains some water that has been sealed in at the factory to keep the load balanced while it is spinning.
