Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer
When the washer is not in use I hear water slushing around when I wiggle the drum. Is that normal. I don't think water should be in the machine after it is finished with a load of laundry.
If you take off the bottom panel on the front of the washer, there is a little pump with a twist lid on it. Open that and see if there is anything plugging up the drain. We had a problem where a sock got sucked into it and it did the same thing.

This is normal for almost all washers. A small amount of residual water remains between the wash basket and tub. This also includes the drain line and drain pump. Altogether, about a gallon. That's the reason why it is important to leave the door open slightly when not in use in order for the tub to air out. This will not evaporate the water, but will help in preventing the build up of mold, mildew and that sour smell. If you click on the link below, it explains some of this:
I hope you find this information helpful. If you have any further questions, let me know.

The same thing happened to me. simply unscrew the botom covering and check the drain catch thats hooked up to your drain hose. theres prob a sock or something in there.
