The water is still soapy after many rinses. I am using very little soap


I am having the identical problem with a Maytag washer! The first 2 or 3 rinses are effective somewhat, (but not like the Whirlpool I had for 22 years) and I think, "one more for fabric softener"---but suddenly I have a full inch of bubbly white, white, very soapy suds! Picture half a washer of water with a cup of tide! It's that soapy and I cannot figure out where the soap is coming from! Tonight, I had not even used a regular soapy detergent in the previous 15 cycles, having switched to an eco detergent from Costco and used little. I even ran a few cycles with no laundry and no detergent--no soap then!

Btw, the washer has only cold water rinses--I had not noticed the tiny print on the front of the washer--or I'd never have bought it. We learned in fabric class that icy cold water (it's snow melt here in Oregon) shocks fabric as badly as hot water, and it fails to get soap out as well. And everything comes out scratchy stiff like cardboard, and hurts my face--skin even peeled before I began opening lid to check on rinse cycle. I got rashes and dry skin from all the soap and ice water...until I began doing 7 or 8 rinse cycles on the items like washclothes, towels etc. Clothing gets hardly any soap, or I hand wash it now--am exhausted and want new machine! Can't sell this junk tho.

Anyway, so the way I rinse with warm or cool (not melted snow) water is I stop the washer and start over the wash cycle to get warmer water for the rinse. Then, I move the dial to extra rinse cycle for the rest of the rinse, after the water has filled, so it cannot go on to do an ice water rinse after competing the "wash" cycle that's really a rinse cycle with no soap.

I would hurt the person who designed this washer! It seems to add soapy water back into the rinse on the 4th rinse cycle! Sounds bizarre, but I always think that everything is finally rinsed ok and one more with a little fabric softener will do it, but when I look inside to add the downey, there's an inch of suds on top! I don't have suds like that on my wash cycles! It's bizarre...I've wondered if neighbor's suds are coming in, or am I haunted?

Last week, I hand-rinsed my washcloths and kitchen towels and put them in washer for the spin cycle, at end of the rinse cycle, just to get water out of them for dryer.... To my dismay, the spray of water while spinning (have no idea why washers add icy snow melt to my warm rinsed laundry during the final spin but they all do, you can hear the spray) was soapier than my original wash cycle--which has a teensy bit of suds which is gone in a minute or 2! Honestly, my washcloths etc were fully soapy again! I'd rinsed them so well that immersing them in warm water left the water clear and clean, but after the spray, they were just as soapy as after the earlier rinse cycles that had the inch of suds... I had to take everything out and spend another hour hand rinsing and wringing befor the dryer....

I have taken to using pint-sized tupperware to get the suds off the top rather than letting it go into the laundry or washer. I skim it out and put it down the kitchen sink. It's so soapy I'd have to do dozens of rinse cycles to rinse it out, so I skim it out manually. So new soap must keep getting into the washer! It also does not seem to matter whether the wash is full or half. Tonight the previous rinse cycle had been full, and pretty clean. But when I o;pened the next one to add fabric softener, it was only half full of water, and an inch or soap suds. I had wondered if the soap was outside the basket, and came in through the holes, once water got that high, but no. Does not matter. And I had wondered if it was caused by suction from stopping the rinse cycle during spin...but I went load after load for 10 days, never stopping a cycle early and it still put all that soap in the 4th rinse cycle. Or in the 3 cycle's spin at the end of rinse, when it sprays water on the spinning laundry.... This is a horror. Maytag ignores my emails. The handyman says new washers are terrible and wants nothing to do with it. I wish I'd paid whatever it took to fix my old whirlpool. 22 years and never an issue ever, never more than 3 rinses and then only a 3d because I'd used double soap to get out dirt from gardening or road trips like Santa Fe in the winter when shih tzus got covered with red clay dirt used on snow and ice--that stuff is lethal! Normally I added fabric softener on 2d rinse cycle and things were so clean. Now things are not clean, come out ripped, or with pilling like they aged 10 years in one night. So I handwash anything I want to keep nice. Washcloths are getting frayed, towels look bleached or faded....and I am relating to my grandmothers on wash day. Sorry it's just more problems not solutions.

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

Washing machine seems to be washing ok but when it comes to the final rinse and spin the soapy water is pouring out of the soap dispenser on the front


this is happening because the machine is not draining the water away fast enough when going into the spin cycle. clean out the filter under the machine, this will solve your problem.

Leak onto floor...ran rinse and regulr cycle to locate leak...checked undersink connections. no apparent leak with testing.


if your leak occurs during the spin cycle than it is a plastic container-like component located at the bottom aft portion of your washer. Just follow your drain hose down to the bottom and you will see it. Part produces a "venturi" like affect to blast the drain water on out into the drain hose. The plastic gets old and it splits, you may not even be able to see the split until it is under pressure.

Washer wil not spin or drain out after cycle completed


sounds like drain is plugged. this is a fairly easy fix,and you actually get paid to do it. unscrew the bottom panel of your washer should be 3 screws on the very bottom then you will see a white plug that is about 2 1/2" unscrew it (make sure you have a bowl under it water will leak ) and pull it out. this is where you get paid you will find all kinds of change and junk just clean it out reinstall and your clothes will be a lot drier after the spin cycle

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.
