Could be that the water flow in and drain is limited, so checkthe inlet filter fro clogging as well as the outlet filters .Then the action will be fast.
Secondly the program controller can be defective and taking too much time due to errrors in the program timer.

I have a Kenmore 70 series Washing machine top load model 110 serial number 82870120 . where is the lint trap located and how to take out to clean? clothes have a lot of lint after being washed.


It is likely that a tissue or paper product was included with the wash load. The series 70 does not have a lint trap. At the hose connection to the house drain lint has been known to build up restricting the emptying. This buildup would not introduce lint into the washer.

If the water temperature is very very cold and you use powder detergent it will not dissolve completely into the water and will leave a white residue on the fabrics.

Try running a short load in the washer allowing for ample water to rinse out the machine before the next wash load.

Doesnt seem to be cleaning good. should i not be putting so many clothes in it? should I use more soap? I feel like the clothes barely get wet!


These washers use very little water. (about 2 inches in the bottom of the wash tub) The actual amount used will vary based on the volume of clothes and the type. (snythetic clothes do not absorb much water, but put in a load of cotton towels, for example, and the clothes absorb the water, causing the water level to drop, and the machine will add more water to return the level to the set point, which usually takes a several short fills, over a couple minutes)
To see that the clothes are indeed wet, just pause the machine a few minutes into the cycle. The door will unlock, and you can feel how wet they are. When the cycle completes, these machines spin so much faster (about twice as fast as most top loading machines) that the clothes feel very dry. (thus reduced drying time, and additional energy savings) Because of the lower water usage (about 12 gallons vs. about 45 for a top loader) make sure you only use 1 to 2 (max) tablespoons of HE detergent per cycle, and only 1 teaspoon of fabric softner if you use it. (don't use fabric softner on towels) Using too much addatives will cause odor issues, and possible performance issues.

Fabric softener cup on Maytag Neptune washer is full of fabric softener after the cycle. Checked valves in output mode. Both the main and the bleach valve turn on and dispense water, but no water dispenses...


Hi. your problem is actually a rather complicated one.

Timer and selector switches The timer switch is usually the largest dial on the main control panel. It can be either a mechanical device much like a simple clock, or completely electronic with just a digital readout.

The timer runs the washing machine in a pre-determined pattern. It provides the electricity to all of the washing machine components at the correct time and for the correct length of time.

The Start switch is usually part of the timer knob. When you set the timer to the proper cycle, you either pull or push the timer knob to start the cycle.

The selector switches or knobs vary from machine to machine. Most washing machines have one or several switches or knobs on the control panel besides the Timer/Start switch. These let you adjust certain settings; for example, the water temperature, spin speed, timer cycle, and so on. Normally, the washing machine completes the cycle selected on the timer, regardless of how you set these switches and knobs.

Apparently the residue is fatty buildup from fabric softener. Try filling it up with the warmest water possible and add some bicarb to dissolve it, then rinse a few times to get it out of the machine completely. Then use vinegar instead of softener for most washes, or dilute fabric softener with water 1:4 and occasionally rinse with bicarb. This works for me.
