Water overflow when tub is emptying during spin cycle


It sounds more like you have a drain problem that a machine problem. Try draining into the laundry tub and check that the tub drains quickly enough. If not, you have a plumbing problem...Good luck...Nomess

My washing machine keeps getting water in it after the cycle is over. This morning I came in and my empty washer was filled with water and had overflowed onto the floor. Help! There are also times when...


mine also remains wet and soggy, even after the spin cycle. However, I have not, as of yet, (and hopefully won't) begin having overflow problems.

Mine is jumping around the laundry room - as though in an unbalanced cycle. We discovered that one of the "feet" that the washer stands on needs to be adjusted, upward or down, so that the washer stands balanced and evenly. The "foot" does not make contact, and when we turn it to change its height, it just goes in circles without changing height.

Wont spin


the machine will only drain after the rinses and give it three minutes to reach a pressure setting if this pressure setting is not met within the three minutes,the machine will stop, this sounds like the drain might be slightly blocked try there first, and then the drain pump and sump of the machine.

My washer wont agitate or spin


If this machine is a drum type and NOT A TOP LOADER (There was no mention of the model) then the overload has possibly caused the drive belt to either break or jump off the drum pulley.

IMPORTANT: THERE ARE LIVE SWITCHES AND MAINS SUPPLIES WHEN THE COVER OF THESE MACHINES ARE REMOVED, DO NOT TOUCH OR TAMPER WITH ANY PART, UNLESS THE POWER IS OFF AND THE PLUG REMOVED FROM MAINS SOCKET.

If the belt has slipped off or has broken, it can be replaced by fitting the (new) belt around the motor drive pulley (small end) and refitting around the drum pulley, you can do this by feeding the belt around the drum pulley, by holding the belt in place and feeding onto the pulley (IT IS EASY TO GET YOUR FINGERS NIPPED BETWEEN THE BELT AND LARGE DRUM PULLEY WHEN ATTEMPTING TO FIT BELTS BACK - SO BE VERY CAREFUL)

Best of Luck!!

Water was overflowing over the top and flooding the laundry room


If it was left in the reset position then it could absolutely pushed the diaphragm in the air switch to a point that the contactor couldn't reach it. Set it on a large load, let it fill and watch it. If it starts to overflow, pull the plug out, if it continues filling, you need a new water valve on the washing machine and if it stops then you need a new level switch

Kenmore 80 Series Overflow


We've now had this happen three times and the exact same thing caused it all three times.

If the water level selector knob hasn't "clicked" into one of the given load levels on the control panel(i.e. the knob is in between levels) it will continue to fill until you discover water everywhere and turn the knob until it "clicks" into a level.

As far as I know, it has nothing to do with loose hoses or bad switches, it's bad design. There seems to be no safety mechanism to turn off the water if you over- or under-shoot the desired water level.

Washer does not spin


that wont cause it not to spin but it just jerks the tub around a bit stronger.you most likely have a bad clutch.you can take front panel off and see if your clutch is grabbing when you put it in spin.it is under the motor.

Burnt rubber smell


the belt is broken. the machine wont spin or agitate with a broken belt. set the timer to spin and the water should still drain. but not spin. belts are very cheap but replacing on could be tricky if you dont know what your doing
