I have a top laoder whirlpool8564990 it don´t spin well it leaves my clothes soaked and it goes to spinning cycle yet it don´t spin


From the information you have supplied, I suspect that the machine is not draining the water away,
1] Check that the drain pump is working (it would be easier to hear it running, before the machine starts the spin cycle, or if your machine has a "drain down" feature)
2] If the pump is running, stop the machine and unplug it from the mains power. Remove the machine drain tube from the point where it is plumbed into the household waste pipe, and lay it down into a bucket, or large pan and allow the water to drain down [ you should expect to get up to 2 gallons (10 Litres) of water from the machine]
Allow the water to drain down completely by holding the drain hose as low as possible into the bucket.
3] once the water has drained completely, remove the drain hose from the pump and check that the drain hose is not blocked.
4] If the hose was clear, and the pump was running (in tests [1] & [2] ), it will be necessary to check that the drain pump, and the main hose from the tub to the pump are clear of obstructions.
Remove any foreign objects, and re-assemble the hoses to the pump to the machine, and the drain hose to the domestic plumbing.

Plug the machine into the mains power, and and set the machine to run on the "last rinse" and "spin" cycles and test to see if the problem has been rectified.

I hope this helps cure your problem.

I have a Magic Chef dishwasher that's between 10 and 15 yrs old. The dishwasher doesn't always completely drain and leaves varying amounts of water behind.


The drain pump may be faulty or the drain pipe exiting the machine is in the wrong position allowing drain water back into the system.

Hope this solves your problem

Hi, Bought a Maytag front loading washer #MAH6500AWW about 5 years ago. 1. The amount of water remaining in the machine (if you turn the drum it sounds like SEVERAL gallons of water swooshing around)...


i would say the drain pump is blocked.......... you could take the drain hose and leave open end at lowest point on the floor into a container and let water drain out..........easier if you can get machine to outside door and let water drain outside i did a zanusi last night...stuck in the pump was 9 small coins 1 hair grip and a womans bra under wire............
follow the waste hose at the back of the machine it ends at the pump......... open the pump then check it out...
good luck..
cheers

Nearly new front load Maytag Neptune doesn't seem to pump out completely i.e. spinning the drum produces sloshing sound. Clothes are clean, there is no odor and no water is visible in machine but this...


Hello,

Did this always seem to happen since you got it, or is it something that just started recently?

If it has always been present, this may be normal for that particular machine. Although there is a water pump in the machine, it will not be able to pump out all the water since it would start sucking air and there would still be water in the hose.

If the machine is not level side to side, and esp. front to back, all the water would not find its way to the pump. Front loaders have the drain fitting at the rear, so a bit of forward tilt would leave water in t tub.

If it has just started, look at an obstruction in the drain hose / pipe. The water pump has to pump the water up, but if it encounters an obstruction, it may not be able to get all the water out before the cycle timer moves on.

Are you able to attach a garden hose (ran outside) to the drain hose (duct tape work well), and lay it down on the floor? How much water drains out then? Do you still have the sloshing sound afterwards? If you do, then this is likely normal for your washer. If not, then water pump may not be doing its job like it should.

Our machine does not always spin the clothes completely "damp"


Hi,  try these:
This may be a spin problem or a drain problem
Drain:
  • Make sure the drain line is clear
  • Check the drain hose for a partial blockage
  • Inspect the water pump
Spin:
  • Test the lid switch
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the centrifugal switch
  • Test the water level switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission
please rate my suggestion....

I have had the same problem. I unplug the washer for a couple of hours and then run the rinse/spin cycle and it takes care of the problem. I've had my machine for 2 1/2 years and this problem started exactly after the first year ended. The first time it happened, I called for repair but before the repair guys came I tried this and so far it has worked. It happens about every few months.iIt's a pain but so far no repair guy bill, yet.
