HE3 washer not drying the cloths

My HE3 washer runs its entire cycle but the cloths come out dripping wet. No error messages come up. Does seem to make some noise when the tub initially moves.

I had this problem a few months ago and it turned out to be a bad water pump; I replaced it myself and it was incredibly easy. The hardest part was removing the front panel, below the door because the screws are under a lip, about half an inch off the ground. When you get it off, the pump mechanism will be right in front of you. The pump is on the right side of the mechanism and is screwed into the plastic part. When I removed it, the impeller (a small, ribbed plastic part that spins and moves the water) was broken off from the motor. You can buy the whole pump mechanism from Sears for about $100 and install it yourself. Just follow the directions that come with it!!! Hope this helps.

It's possible that the tub didn't drain properly in the allotted time and the remaining water is slowing your drum from coming to maximum extraction speed.

I have a Kenmore frontloading washer, model no. 417.42042100. At the end of the wash cycle, the clothes are still very wet; that is, still SOAKED with water, even though all the water has been drained...


HI. your unit is equipped with a spin control board. this board, if damaged, will not initiate an adequate spin. This will not allow for proper drainage and drying of the clothes. The spin motor regulates the rotation speed during the spin cycle. It seems to be the culprit at this time. Have the spin board replaced asap.

This part will usually cost around $150.00 at the most.

My clothe come out very wet at the end of the wash cycle


If the pump is clogged and can't release all the water it won't go into final high spin. Remove lower cover and locate coin catch and unscrew it. Water will come out, so be ready. If it's full of stuff, this is probably the problem.

If the motor has a transmission, it could be stuck in 1st gear. I think the agitator running is normal.

Clean all of the lint from the inside cabinet and duct work of your dryer. Then, try to clear the odor, by running a couple of loads of old rags or towels. Good luck!
