Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. The water is probably being spun out of the clothes but the water is not being drained out subsequently.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the water drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

One piece agitator wraps cloths


When loading the machine, load towels, sheets or jeans with an accordion fold instead of putting the laundry in a circle around the agitator. It helps to put the clothes in at the twelve o'clock position, then six o'clock, then nine o'clock and then three o'clock. Repeat this sequence until the washer is full.
The laundry can circulate much better and get cleaner too.

Why won't my Maytag Washer extract water properly from clothing after going through the complete cycle?


Belt tension spring faulty, belt loose. Pump partly blocked, look for coin caught in hoses. Internal clutch failed in gearbox, replace gearbox. Gearbox pulley wrongly adjusted, remove pulley, re-grease, re-install with correct clearance.

Which washing machine is better front load or top load?


Front load washing machines are better than top load money wise.

One advantage of a front loading washing machine is an increased capacity. Since there is no central agitator, the horizontally-oriented drum can hold at least 20 to 30% more clothing per load. For a large family, this could mean running only three loads in a front loading washing machine compared to five in a top loader. Fewer loads often translates to savings in utility bills and water usage.

Another advantage of a front loading washing machine is less water and detergent usage. A top loading washer must use enough water to cover the highest level of the clothes. A front loading washing machine, on the other hand, only uses enough water to cover approximately the lower third of the tub at most.

Water on floor after drum is full


You have a blocked outlet hose I would suspect. OR a Blocked Pump. You need to inspect both. Drain the water out via a siphon, and have a look at all the connections and hoses, & pump, you may need to remove the pump to check, clothes sometimes "Get Through". blocking it up.

My Zanussi FJ 1254W has suddenly started leaving lots of undissolved powder in the clothes after washing. I've checked that the filter is clean, and used Calgon though a couple of washes, but it hasn't...


Try filling it up with HOT water and vinegar use about 2 cups for a full load. Also take the hot and cold water hoses off the washer and check the screens for little sand like rocks that can block the water flow. I always use liquid and not the powder. Another thing is not to put the clothes in first. After you try the other things first then try to add the water first with the powder and then put the clothes in. Don't over load the clothes. This can cause the powder not to dissolve either. Hope this helps.

Is it normal not to see a water level in the washer?


It can be. Some modern machines pride themselves on low water usage.
It's usually a bad sign if the water level is too high.
If clothes are not actually getting washed, or powder is not dissolving, check input filters by undoing hoses. The filters are just pushed into the inlet ports. Hot usually gets blocked first - so check water levels of a hot wash (90) compared to a cool wash (40) They should be the same.

Whirpool Duet - Soap not getting into wash cycle


O.K. Is the water draining out properly? If the filter is blocked then your washing will be churning in dirty water as the machine will drain for a maximum time then rinse etc. in the used water.

Cycle is leaving loads of soaking wet clothes


Power off the wall. Get user's manual, look for blocked filter. Open up the filter, usually front bottom right side, clean, refit. Be prepared for much water to come out. The filter requires periodic cleaning according to usage.
Also possible your hose under the machine tub is blocked.......
