Question about Frigidaire GLWS1233A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

After cycles complete, some soap still left in machine.

It's been a gradual problem, but our washing machine will fill with water, rinse, empty the water; but after pulling clothes out, we'll notice soapy residue (or some small patches of bubbles... never more than 1 or 2 patches) still on the side of the tub. We do not over fill the machine; in fact, I've tested it with only a t-shirt on a low load setting and it still happened. Any ideas? (We purchased our home a few months ago and before that it sat vacant for a year. I am guessing the washer/dryer are from about 2001, since that's when the house was built.)

    We'll change soaps... a handful of the pros on Yahoo answers suggested that we pour in white vinegar on an empty cycle and that should clean it out.

    We have harder than average water for our area, so that very well may be it.

    thanks!

Spinning cycle


Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

Why doesn't my washing machine fill with enough water to wash my clothes properly any more


Unplug the washer for 10 minutes and let the board reset. If it still is not filling correctly, then the pressure switch or load size switch is faulty. Appliance Parts Suppliers sells Samsung Parts in Bolingbrook, IL sells samsung parts.

How To Clean Silk


Hand Wash the item. Gently move the silk fabric around in the soapy water. Rub stains with your fingers or a sponge to clean them. Pour the water out when finished washing your garment.
Rinse the silk garment in a vinegar solution. White vinegar removes soap, restores shine and softens silk. Fill the basin with cold rinse water. Add 1/4 c. (50 ml) white vinegar. Gently move the garment around in the water to thoroughly rinse it. Empty the basin again.
Rinse the item in cold water. Add cold water to the basin. Rinse the silk item a second time in a basin of fresh, cold water. Turn the garment over and around to ensure it is completely rinsed and free of soap.

Moffatt washer is washing and draining but not spinning out the clothes


All content © 2000 © 2009 Washerhelp
> Home / Repairs DIY washing machine advice (part 8) Washing machine sticks or stops mid-cycle repairs-sm.gif A very common fault on washing machines is when the program timer fails to complete the cycle and stops part way through. Many people blame the program timer for this but although it is a possible cause, there are many more likely causes for this fault. The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are too many possible causes of this fault to be able to give anything other than rudimentary advice. However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking that can easily be fixed are filling and emptying problems.
Check that the cold water supply is available to the washing machine, which is a common cause for sticking on rinses. If the washing machine appears to stop mid-cycle and isn't filling with water on rinses then see Washing machine won't fill with water (or no water goes into washing machine) before calling an engineer. If the washing machine can't drain the water out then it will stick on the rinses, or it will abort with an error code. If you can see water still inside the washing machine then check the following advice Washing machine won't empty water

After washing clothes are still soapy


The washer may be using hot for wash, cold for rinse. If the cold water side of the water control valve has failed, you won't get rinse water. For a quick test, reverse the hoses.

Kenmore washer series 80, Clothes still soapy


If you are getting no water spray during the rinse cycle that would cause the soapy clothes issue.

Are you getting cold water during the wash/rinse cycles? If you have the machine set to warm/warm you may only be getting hot water while the final spin is calling for cold.

If you have cold water available then the timer is not calling for the water spray. The problem is either in the mixing valve or the timer.

Maytag Washer Not Completely Rinsing


If your washer has an extra rinse button try pushing it. My Maytag refuses to wash unless that button is pushed, so in your case it may not be completing the rinse cycle correctly.

Just a suggestion.
