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.

    • Have any of you guys tried the Stanley ribbit frogs?  I picked up a couple of packs at my local wally world for a $1 a pack.   On a side note I saw a video of Jacob Wheeler talking about using a buzzbait and putting a biffle bug on it instead of a skirt, he mentioned that they hit it better and hold on to it a little longer since there is some mass there.  I wonder if a zoom horny toad would work for that as well since the biffle bugs are expensive.
    • HAs anyone here used this software to map your lakes?  Has anyone downloaded the lakes that are on the shared cloud?  I have a hook 7 and some of the lakes around have been mapped, it would be nice to download them and use that instead of the other map.
    •   Is that the work around garmin uses to avoid licensing the Lowrance patent?    Or was the patent on something different?
    • I was on private land that I have shot 8 birds in 10 seasons.Over 300 acres of prime land by Caledonia but none in our group of 4 scored this year. Just makes me more excited for next year. Might try the last season but will probably be into fishing by that time. Good Luck to All.....
    • Love the zoom horny toads. Man they can have some vicious blowups. Im a huge fan of buzzbaits so to be able to use this frog like a buzzbait in some thick weeds is awesome.
    • Lilacs are really leafing out here in central MN.  On my few walks through the woods, the mushrooms have been few and far between: No more scarlet cups, no pheasant backs, no oysters. I haven't went to my morel spots because there's no hurry and I don't want to trample them, but I doubt they're up very far around here if the pheasant backs haven't even fruited. I'll be back out today before the rain checking on things, though. 
    •   Just stating the facts as they stand Bear.  You listen or read at all what the national NHL analysts are saying/writing about the Wild's present/recent past/future?  I've said before I love your postivity and I'm glad too that MN has an NHL team. Spin is required to hide the facts, spin is needed to turn what is not good and make it sound good, spin is needed to make it sound like you are doing your job well when in fact we are no closer than we were 3-4 years ago.  Seriously....any chump could have improved the team from what it was when Fletch took over...you and I could have done that. If you just look inside the box, wow we are much improved; but if you look outside the box and compare yourself to the rest of the league you realize we really have not climbed the ladder very much...16th, 15th, 14th, 13th, 12th, 11th, 10th in the NHL does not cut it for me...for you it does and thus our differences and our ability to argue/discuss this back and forth.
    • Your best angle of attack should come like this: Do you need to control your trolling motor with your sonar? if so you have 2 choices. Lowrance uses motor guide and H-bird goes with Minnkota. If that is not a requirement than the field is wide open. IMO don't go with a screen smaller than 9" with side imaging there is so much detail that its hard to see on a 7" screen. I'd stay away from garmin or any unit that doesn't have a true down scan ducer that uses software to produce a down scan image there is just too much stuff lost without it.   
    • It's a pop or in my case an ice tea bottle with several 1/8" holes near the bottom of the bottle.  I then roll up paper towels and get as many as I can stacked inside the bottle.  When I need to cough I unscrew the top and cough into it.  It definitely softens then noise to more of a rush of air sound.
    • I use the standard frogs (non-Popping) as i feel i can always pop a non-popping.  I do like to throw into cover and hit those pockets and open area's ... there is times when walking it really makes a big difference on strikes.  Can't wait for the season!!  i was just experimenting with the frogs and not bass fishing yet.   We will keep in touch and see how ya all are doing with the frogs this summer.  I am intrigued also with the Zoom Horny toad, ready to try those also.   Cret
