The machine does not seem to empty of water properly; it is spinning OK so I guess this might be a draining or punping issue. HOwever I have no instruction booklet that helps me to diagnose futher. Any suggestions?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the 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. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

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!
Manual
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Good luck,
John C.

Where is washing machine filter in wdsr2120j


No filter. Thats with front loaders. Water left in the tub is two issues. #1 Kinked drain or clogged hose. If that is OK then your drain pump is bad and needs replacing.

Kenmore washer top load all cycles normal but when in the rinse/spin cycle notice it does not seem to spin fast enough to remove water from clothes and the are wetter then normal


There could be a number of reasons My best guess is that it will reduce the spin speed if it thinks it can't drain properly. Check that all the pipes/ filters etc are clear and that it can drain all the water out. Also it wont spin fast if the load is unbalanced. Does the spin speed change according to loading or is it low all the time? It may have a motor control problem, but that seems unlikely if it's working normally other than the spin.

I have a quiet series 100 and clothes are soaked after final spin cycle. drum spins but agitator is stopping and starting. Only one time in about 10 will it ever get up to full spin speed. How do I fix...


This could have something to do with water not draining properly and slowing the drum down. Check the drain hose position and see if it's emptying the water out properly. Your machine may have an internal filter that could be cleaned. Then there's all the things that could be wrong with the gearbox, motor, electronics, etc. If it's not a draining issue it'd probably be better to let a professional work on it for you.

No spin cycle or drain


Ok, check the following before you replace the timer. in most cases, the washer will not spin if there is a drainage issue. please check the following below and, if everything concerning the drain assembly checks out ok, then , replace the timer.


1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

The main cause with this model is water still in machine. Try a spin and look for water in drum. To empty manually lower drain hose into bowl untill empty. Door should then open.

We have a drain issue it seems like. I would first check the drain hose to make sure that an air gap exists to prevent drain water siphoning into the machine and then run a rinse and spin empty to see if this helps. Second is to check spin speed and pump condition as these two can work together to create a problem similar to yours.

Here are the symptoms: - Wash cycle seems ok but can not be sure. When complete the rinse commences but am unaware what happens next. This is what I have done Started washing clothes and waited for cycle to end(!) or problems start. Switched off and set program knob to rinse. At this point I select spin and after a while the water starts to empty. When a sufficient amount has emptied I stop the spin (no spinning has began), and set the knob to wash again. This now allows clean water to rinse the clothes and when I think it has rinsed enough I set the knob to off then spin again until all the water has emptied. When the drum is empty the spin cycle should continue but does not. What happens is there is a clunking sound and the activity light goes out again, when it comes back on the machine tries to start the spin again and the sequence is repeated.
