Admiral Washing Machine (Model LNC6760B71)- clothes remain damp

My washing machine operates all wash/rinse cycles without problems. However, during final spin cycle, drum rotation speed appears slower than normal. When spin time is completed, clothes feel more wet than normal. It appears the spin cycle is not properly removing heavy moisture and/or clothes are not fully spun out of moisture content.

    Understand all water is pumped out during the spin cycle and no water remains in the bottom of the drum when done. However the clothes remain extra damp. In observing the drum speed during spin cycle, it appears slower than usual? Could the slower spin velocity cause moisture to retain in clothing?

  • duffmurphy Jul 24, 2008

    Yes.........No water remains in bottom of drum.......clothes are slightly wet but not soaked. The added moisture in clothes requires longer time in dryer. This condition is same for big or small loads.

  • duffmurphy Jul 25, 2008

    After replacing worn belt with new one, the spin speed is still slow or hesitates to start spinning. Clothes remain extremely damp at end of cycle.

  • duffmurphy Jul 25, 2008

    Replaced worn belt with new one but clothes are still damp at end of spin cycle. Water is pumped out of drum during spin process but speed of spin cycle is questionable.

  • duffmurphy Jul 25, 2008

    After replacing the belt, I checked the spin cycle again while machine was operating and it appears the agitation blade is also running (back & forth) like it would during a wash setting simultaneous to the drum attempting to spin. Why would this happen in spin mode? The unusual agitation process simultaneous to the spin activity may be the reason the spin speed is slower and clothes are very damp at end of cycle?

  • duffmurphy Jul 25, 2008

    Understand there is no problem with the pump since as all water is removed during the spin cycle. Why would the agitator operate during a spin cycle?

  • duffmurphy Jul 26, 2008

    I have evaluated all advice shared and it appears the machine is working properly in every cycle. The loads are always clean and each programmed setting runs to completion of a wash/rinse/spin full cycle without mechanical problems. One basic observation is the laundry is generally more damp than normal at the end of the spin cycle. After visually watching, I think the drum spin speed may be normal during final spin cycle. I installed new belt (since older belt was a bit stretched out) but clothes dampness is still excessive and this added moisture requires longer time in the dryer. I am reluctant to replace the entire motor unless this is definitely the problem.

  • duffmurphy Aug 02, 2008

    After one more week of normal aundry, machine continues to run properly but the spin cycle still leaves clothes extra damp at conclusion of each load. It is difficult to determine if the spin speed is too slow since it does rotate with good velocity. Belt was replaced with no difference noted in dampness. I speculate the motor may be operating with possible speed defect. Should I replace motor or try something else before purchasing and installing new motor?

    The drum of the front loader Hoover Electron800 Dual Spin washing machine does not move freely if rotated by hand. The washing machine is making high pitch, grinding noises through-out all the cycles. During the final rinse cycle, the clothes are still very wet. Drying during spinning is not effective. What could be the causes of these probllems?

Hi,

It is likely that the motor itself have some issues. Often these motors run one way and reverse themselves later depending on what cycle the machine is set to. Having said this, the motor then would have two set of windings, one for clockwise, another for counter clockwise. it is very possible that either is partially burned out hence slow in rotation. it would be normal one way but would be slow the other way. Please check if the direction of rotation of the drum during the wash cycle is towards the same direction as that of the spin cycle.

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Sir,

The motor on this washer turn one way to wash and the other way to spin and drain.

So if the washer is spinning and not draining you have a pump problem.Take the front panel off and watch to see what is happening.

You will have to check for power to the motor in spin. Either the motor is bad or the timer or both. Refer to the schematic for this.


Thanks
Good luck

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

    In your particular case:
    "




    It doesn't spin or pump

    If
    your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running,
    your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to
    replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer
    and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if
    it's frozen or stiff--replace it.




    It pumps, but the water returns

    If
    the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine
    after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a
    laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual
    remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is
    something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:



    • If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.



    • If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

    Yes slower speed will drain slower, but in this case you will have clothes that are just slightly wet and not soaked.
    Cause for slower speed can be a too heavy or bad distributed load or a drum belt in need for replacement.
    Check if there is water inside drum after cycle finishes.

    Well if you changed the belt, and it happens regularly even with small loads, it seems to be a structural poblem with your appliance. If the motor coupler is broken it just won't work, Replacing motor could work, but I cannot guarantee anything, and is an expensive part.

Horrible damp smell in my easi logic 1500 washing machine, what's the best cause of action?


Check the drainage of the machine.nothing like stagnant water sitting in the hoses and bottom of machine to cause smells.first check the penny / button trap for coins or debris as this will cause unsatisfactory emptying .do a rinse cycle with no cloths in machine.Get some calgon or anything that removes washing machine or dishwasher lime scale.then do a full wash without clothes on 60 degrees or above with small amount of bleach and lime scale remover.make sure the room is well ventilated.never overfill machine with dirty laundry when washing as this prevents the rinse cycles from removing bad water completely.try leaving the door slightly open between washes but only if you have no pets or children to prevent build up of damp spores.

You will need to have a qualified LG technician come out and see what the problem is.  You may have a water level switch issue.

Loud noise on spin cycle


How did that answer get an 83% rating? It is absolutely useless. My washer has the exact same problem as described above.During the spin cycle it sounds like a jet engine. It kinda sounds like the belt hitting the drive wheel but may be bearings in the motor.

Kenmore Washing Machine doesn't rinse


The drain line is probably clogged. Maybe that a small sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. Check as well that pump spins and clean from any clogged. Good luck!
