On this model, first check your pump for proper operation. Wet clothes can be the result of slow spin speed, which can be casued by a binding tub seal or bearing, brake rotor assy. not disengaging properly, or a slipping clutch spring. You also want to check to see if you have anything binding between the tub and basket that will slow it down. Sometimes a sock or lint can wad up and cause a drag.

Makes grinding sound when agitating & when spins clothes must be wrung to get more water out

Your pump is going out. I have seen em lock slap up in one direction only and not leak but the bearing be gone. Easy fix. 3 s/8th inch screws hold the pump to the base. a couple screws hold the service panel on and you need pliers to get the hose clamps loose. The belt comes off easy by hand no tools need. The belt also might need to be changed which is simple. Let me see if i can find a video.

Hi - My Whirlpool washer appears to not use enough water. Don't get me wrong, I want the machine to use low water (that's why I bought a front loader, model: WFW97HEX). However, when I stop the...

Don't pause the cycle mid cycle. The machine uses the amount of water it needs to clean the amount of clothes that are in the tub. If you pause it after the first 7 or 8 minutes, you're already past the sensing part of the cycle and likely you won't get more water for the additional clothes.

Also, the clothes don't need to be soaking wet or wet enough to wring out. These new HE machines mix the detergent with water and then spray that detergent solution onto your clothes. Then the clothes against clothes rubbing with that solution already coating the clothes is how the machines clean better! It is a very similar process to when you pretreat your clothes with Shout of Spray and Wash. You spray the clothes and then rub the short against itself. Now the Whirlpool machines are doing this for you!

What do i clean the screen with?

Cleaning is simple. Vacuum the rear vents to remove any dust that has built up.

For screen and the fascia, -

1. Unplug the monitor from the power supply.
2. Fill a bowl with warm water with some washing up liquid - just as you would to clean dirty dishes. Soak a soft clean cloth in the water (Kitchen cloth - NONE ABRASIVE!! and not a sponge!), and wring the cloth out so that it is damp (not wet!) and gently wash the screen. When finished use kitchen roll to dry off the monitor.
3. Stubborn marks on the LCD, using the same damp cloth, apply a spot of neat washing up liquid to the cloth. Clean as before - DO NOT PRESS on screen. When finished, use kitchen roll as before.

Voila!

Getting the machine to spin heavy load

you have a bad belt, your drain is too high
you can change the belt but you may need to get a high velocity pump if your drain tube is much higher than 1 foot above the machine

My washer doesn't wring the clothes fully.

It's not spinning fast enough because of a loose or worn belt on the motor. Post back with your model number and I may can find a diagram of your washer to help you.

Bad smell

washers and dryers dont make smells themselves its a problem with something u might be putting in it. if u tend to add alot more detergent then usual to your towels then they never completely rinse the water out and will have a mildew smell
