Washer Spins But The Clothes Are Still Soaked
There are many problems that can be associated with this call to our shop, With today’s high-tech machines it can be a number of problems truth be told. Below is the most likely of the problems below. If your washing machine goes through a spin cycle and your clothes are still wet, we suggest you look at the items below. Before any service of any machine, you should always cut the power to the machine for safety.
Loading Too Many Clothes
One of the most common problems is people tend to put too many clothes in the washer in the first place. (ask my wife) Most machines today have a metered water system in them and do not have a full drum of days of old. Too many wet clothes can have a dramatic effect on the spin cycle in the machine and this could be the problem. You see all the weight can affect the spin speed of the machine and hence lead to wet clothes. Too many clothes can have an effect on the washer belt otherwise known as the drive belt in machines of today. These are the most common issue that affects most new machines today.
Drain Hose Issues
Looking at the drain hose can be a good first step, if this gets plugged the machine will have a very hard time removing excess water from the drum. Check the hose for visible damage and make sure there is no foreign object in the hose itself. Drainage issues in any machine are normally the number one problem when this happens. When you check the drain hose, you should also check the drain filter as well. These do get plugged with debris as well. Drainpipe and drain filter clogs is the number one reason for the issue with most machines. Also, make sure there are no drain hose kinks as well. This will have an effect on proper draining in the machine.
Drain Pump Failed:
If the machine’s drain pump has failed this can also be an issue for your clothes staying wet after a cycle. While this is the last on the list for your machine, it still does happen. A bad bearing can ruin your day. Before you write off a defective drain pump, make sure you check for a drain pump filter clog first. Like we said above a drain pump malfunction is normally last on the list for issues with most machines. Check the drain assembly and drain hose loop, before you determine you have a broken drain pump. Drain restriction is normally an appliance issue.
Washer Not Spinning And Clothes Are Still Wet?
More than likely, it will be one of the problems listed above. Worst case you could have a board going out in the machine as well. Another thing you could check is to make sure the lock switch otherwise known as the lid switch is not faulty. This will definitely cause spinning issues in most machines for safety reasons. If you larger items or bulky items if you will have an issue getting dry. Sometimes it is better to cycle the machine twice. But a faulty door lock switch can be an appliance issue for sure.
