Is the machine a FAV6800A or FAV9800A? Do you take the “Sd” error code for high level of suds? If we are talking about a FAV6800A or FAV99800A and the series is 12 or more you have a 2 level sensing pressure switch. This will give you about 3.5” for mid fill and 7” for high fill. I have only seen the Bulky wash cycle fill to High level fill.

Are you using HE detergent and the amounts called for in Use & Care section of the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual ?

If you have a series 10 thru 12 FAV6800A you will have 3 Level pressures switch sensing. Disregard the Low Fill setting IMOP it doesn’t put enough water in the machine for adequate wash. I believe that is why Maytag did away with it and went to 2 level sensing pressure switch in later series…………Rich

    PS



    I would first have a handyman look at it.... like a relative, friend or neighbor and maybe save the $60+ service call. Make the call only when you have done basic troubleshooting.....use the Service Manual for the machine its not difficult to work on with some coaching......Rich

My washing machine does a load but there is clumps of washing powder left on the clothes


Most likley a combination of cheaply made soap, and wadded clothing. Not to mention the fact you should put the soap in first, let it desolve, then add the clothing in in a circular mannor. Not balls. Try this. If all else fails, use gain. its cheap, liquid, and smells great.

Dark clothes have lint left on them. what could help this problem?


Are you sure it is lint and not soap? My washer does this, and it looks like lint, but it is soap.
If it is lint, always keep the lint collector inside the agitator clean.

If it is soap, and this might work for lint:
1. Turn clothes, particularly black clothes, inside out.
2. Use a concentrated soap with little or no filler.
3. Use less soap than normal.
4. Fully dissolve soap before adding clothes.
5. Run rinse cycle again after completing full wash cycle.

When washing dark colors there is a soap residue left on clothes,i have tried using very small amounts of soap as well as different brands of soap


Try using white vinegar in place of liquid fabric softener. Half a cup at the rinse cycle in a full load will do it. Trust me, the smell of the vinegar will fade quickly as it works to break down the soap.

There are two other possibilities here:

You're overloading the washer with clothes - An overfull washer has the problem of not providing proper drainage before the spin cycle starts - Soap ends up getting embedded in clothes instead of being sucked out of the drain.

Or, You're using non-HE soap in an HE washer.

Hope that helps.

Whirlpool Calypso stops at 26 minutes and throws ob code


first you need to clean your washer
run the washer with no clothes; add 1 cup vinegar, that will cut the soap residue from the hoses do this on hot wash hot rinse

then when you wash your next load of clothes; fill the tub about 1/4 full, add the soap, turn the agitator to disolve the soap, then add the clothes

this problem happens also if you are using too much soap or a heavy duty soap such as Tide.

Dark dirty spots on some clothing items appears on every load.


what you are seeing is suds getting back onto the clothes. make sure you are using HE type soap and not using too much of it.
if you are seeing suds inside the unit, when it is running, then it will "re-deposite" dirty soap residues back onto the clothes.
you need to run a rinse and spin cycle or even a heavy duty cycle with hot water to rinse out any soap that is left in the unit.
not a major problem, just use it differently and it will be ok.

Cloths are wet and suds left in tub


You are using too much soap probably run the machine with no clothes and no soap check and see how much soap you still have in the water if it is alot do it again and again if you have to.

Suds residue left on clothes just washed


ck drain hose end of drain hose should be at least 36 ins from floor also be sure drain hose fits loosely in drain water may be siphoning out resulting low water level to wash/rinse ..also recommend using liquid detergent dry doesn't dissolve good in cold water and even though it may be recommended for front load the lower water levels used may not be enough to dissolve it properly

Soap left in clothes


hope you are using he detergents (high effeciency low suds) also if you have soft water oversudsing can occur even with he ..try reducing amount ..also have been told tide he detergent tends to suds more so may try switching detergent brands try runing washer with no soap no clothes begore next load to flush out any detergent that may remain ..be sure to run washer with bleach no clothes on short cycle peroidically to avoid mold/mildew odors that front loads tend to acquire after a few months use and leave door open if possible between uses..let me know about detergent thanks
