Washing machine won't go to spin cycle if there are towels in it


Washing machines have trouble if they are overloaded and the load gets out of balance. This occurs most often with towels. Open the machine and lift the towels out and put them back in evenly to get the load to finish. You will see how heavy they are when full of water. In future, try running with a few less towels and see if it works ok. You have found the other 'fix' by draining and running spin only which probably resettles the load.

Is your Whirlpool or Kenmore front load washer not draining


<span>Hello.<br /><br />The most likely problem is that the drain pump screen is clogged so its not draining and if it isn't draining it wont spin.<br />To check the pump remove the lower panel and the lower right side will be the pump, unscrew the big white cap a little and use towel(s) to catch the water that comes out ,when all water out remove completly and check for blockage,<br /><br />Good luck,i hope this helps<br /><br />Gene</span>

Remove any every heavy items such as floor towels or rugs. Is the machine draining completely or leaving lots of water behind? If not draining check the drain divirertor valve.

W4840 water proof system activated how to reset


1. Unplug the washer
2. Tilt the machine forward about 45 degrees
3. Water will start pouring out from the base pan. Have some towels handy to clean up.
4. Put the machine back in its position
5. Plug it
7. You should be ready to go

Causes

- You may be using too much detergent. Try lesser amount next time.
- There is a leak. If using less detergent does not solve it and this message keeps coming back, then the leak needs to be investigated.

Sewer smelling towels!!! Towels are the worst, other clothes are not great, but not as bad. For the past year I have endured this horrible smell. I've just had it!!! I have done the clorox washings many...


Put a cup of powdered dishwashing detergent in the barrel ie. Sunlight or Palmolive. Place 1 cup of bleach in the soap dispenser. Run on a quick cycle with HOT/HOT and run complete cycle. This does help and don't forget to clean the filter on the lower part of the unit.

Laundry comes out very wet


Hello tcburns07,
If possible, can you cycle a very small load of wash ( perhaps a towel or two) on the lowest setting to validate that : the washer is spiining up to normal speeds while draining water and that the water being drained is complete? Chancves are you have a either a blocked filter that limits water from completely draining, something in the drain pump or a restriction in your drain system. You could also have a worn belt that drives the pump. The test I suggested will at least determine if your washer is capable of draining all of the water from even a small wash load. Try that and let me know the results.
Regards,
Rick

Kenmore Elite Front Load Washer...F02 and SUD not draining!!!!


Probably something caught in pump. Remove lower panel if this one has it and you will see the pump. Loosen the round cover in middle to access clean-out.
