washing machine problem.

7 posts in this topic

Our main washer will not start spining when it gets to that cycle so we are now using our backup washer in the basement. I just noticed that when the water is filling the tub to wash I also have water coming out the drain hose. It seems to be taking a long time to fill and it is a large wast of water. the tub does stay full once it gets enough water in it tho. Anyone have any ideas what is going on or how to fix? I hope that explanation made sense.

Thanks

What kind of washer is it (brand and front loader or top loader)? Does washer just stop when it gets to the point where it should start spinning, or does it run and drain without the clothes spinning? Check the height of your drain hose for the problem of draing when filling. If the drain hose is lower than the height of the water in the tub, the water will slowly drain out from gravity. Just make sure the drain hose loops above the highest point the washer fills to in the machine.

The main washer is a kenmore. it is a one piece stackable washer dryer. the washer is on the bottom and is a top loader. It runs until it gets to that cycle. The water drains but it does not spin so the clothes are dripping wet. The knob stops at the spin cycle also. The hose is lower on our backup washer so I will move the hose.

Thanks

If knob stops at spin cycle, could be something as esy as a bad lid switch. Easiest way to tell is to bypass lidswitch with a wire and try it that way. Usually lidswitch has 2 wires that can be linked to bypass the component.

I just had the lid switch replaced about 6 months ago. I will check that. Can I run it without a switch all the time? My other washer is working fine now that I moved the drain tube.

Thanks a ton for the help.

If you bypass the lid switch and it works, you can wire nut the 2 wires together and it will never break again. Only thing, it won't stop spinning when you open the lid.

    • You scale them, no?
    •   So, why bother with locks?  Honest people won't take your stuff even if the door is unlocked.   I am in the camp that I want to make it at least a little difficult for the crooks.   Especially since three people in our family have had their houses burgled and stuff taken.
    • The result right now is not good. One way or the other the toilet needs flushing
    • Mostly I talk about this with respect to the nonsense about multiple parties or no parties some on here seem so fond of.      It is all a fantasy.   Some new party could possibly take over an existing party, like Trumpism did, or even replace it like happened back in the day but in the end there will be two parties.     Perhaps a parlimentary system with multiple parties would be better than what we have, but, in my opinion, you can't get there from here.  It's like the calls for a Constitutional Convention.   Do you guys seriously think that could happen, and that the result would be good?  
    • I haven't gone up the old Grade, but do head to Outing via Emily and NE from there, and it is really nice. Hardly any roads to go across and little to no ditch riding. I have got to try the Old Grade, as I would think it is like that. We grouse and duck hunt up there now and then, but haven't lately. Great place with lots of public land and opportunity.
    •   But yet I countered with an actual study but you think your own speculative based opinion is better. OK then.     How very hypocritical.      I would end the discussion after that last statement too.
    •     I can guess it is not for humanitarian reasons.   Mexico has about had their fill of fighting the drug war for us, and are moving towards decriminalization.  If California legalizes weed, this would be enough to tip the scales in favor of decriminalization for Mexico.       For years now, Mexico has paid an extraordinarily high price in lives and social disruption for Washington’s insistence that North America’s drug problem be tackled south of the border, where the drugs are grown and transported, rather than primarily in clinics and halfway houses at home to treat the medical and psychological issues of users. Mexican President Pena Nieto.   Successive administrations, starting with President Nixon, have demanded ever-tougher border controls, aerial-spraying programs, and DEA-backed anti-“cartel” operations in Mexico. All those efforts and sacrifices have been for naught. U.S. residents currently export up to $29 billion in cash to Mexican traffickers each year to buy marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines and heroin.   Forcing that trade underground has taken a terrible toll on Mexico in terms of violence, corruption and social upheaval. Since 2006, when President Felipe Calderón ordered his military to join the “war” on drug traffickers, Mexico has lost about 200,000 lives and 30,000 more have disappeared,dwarfing the civilian death toll in Afghanistan and Iraq over that period.   The majority of those killed and disappeared were victims of criminal organizations, but human rights organizations also report soaring rates of human rights violations, including torture and killing, committed by security forces.   The 2016 Global Peace Index, prepared by the Institute for Economics and Peace, estimates the total cost of violence in Mexico at $273 billion, or 14 percent of GDP, with no end in sight. Direct fiscal costs of fighting the war on crime were about $32 billion in 2015 alone. Yet the United States has contributed only about $2.5 billion since fiscal 2008 to Mexico’s drug war, under the so-called “Merida Initiative.” Mexico’s pain shows no signs of easing. The New York Times reported in December that Mexico suffered more than 17,000 homicides in the first 10 months of last year, the highest total since 2012. “The relapse in security has unnerved Mexico and led many to wonder whether the country is on the brink of a bloody, all-out war between criminal groups,” it said.    
    •   But In Del's defense, he only does this on things he would like to stay as is. When you are talking about legislation he is in favor of then it is the law of the land and can't be changed. When it is something that he dislikes, it can and should be changed.
    •  Yes.   Speculative based opinion.   Same type of shiat you brought to the table 12,632 times.      Yes. When he was plain ol' Trump. Now he governs. He cannot say that anymore.   No government will ever straight up legalize all drugs. You know it, I know it.   End of discussion.
