In Topic: Kenmore Washer 110 44832 200 Not spinning clothes completely?

28 January 2015 - 07:35 PM

OK, so clothes coming out of the cycle were definitely not completely spun dry.  I could grab a typical dish towel and wring out a couple ounces of water fairly easily.  I ran an additional drain and spin cycle to verify that it was spinning appropriately, and it got a lot of water out of the clothes.  they were significantly drier after the extra spin.  The bath towels were much lighter and drier, etc.

 

While watching the additional spin, The machine spun at a good speed.  I did not watch the main cycle to see if there were differences.

 

So...double check the drain hose?

 

What else would lead to too-damp clothes coming out of a washer?

 

Thank you,

Sorry spaced on the drain obstruction comment right above my post.  Any other thoughts?

I'll scrubb the sensor bars.  Checked for obvious issues, but not a residue buildup.  

 

I cleaned out the vent line with a shop vac from end to end and will double check airflow.

 

I will also try a timed cycle for the same 40 mins that the controlled cycle runs.

 

Thank you.

So I took apart the *entire* vent (4" rigid pipe x about 20 straight feet) and cleared it out with a shopvac. I did not get every bit of residue, but probably 95%.  The clothes are dry, except heavy items like jeans will be a little moist.

 

This is a vent configuration that has worked fine for 10 years, so it's not optimal, but it's functional.  I will double check one last elbow in the dryer tubing tonight.  I will also give the Washer a sanity check.

 

I've had drain obstruction and fill valve problems with the washer in the past, which is why I was asking.

 

Thanks for the pointers,

 

Marc

So...I went under the house and dismantled and cleaned out the exhaust vent.  Took some lint out, but not a whole lot, and the dryer still having problems.

 

How would I test the Thermastor on the Dryer.  I have a multimeter.

 

My suspicion is the Washer spin cycle  This has happened in the past.  I had a broken fill valve solenoid and the washer kept adding water to itself, leaving loads too wet.  I will open a separate item in the forum to check on that after searching for known issues

 

Thank you,

In Topic: Bosch Dishwasher SHE66C05UC/40 door leaks

Hmmm running a test rinse this morning after emptying the dishwasher, and it seems better.  Suppose my wife overloaded it, and I was too tired to do a proper sanity check.  I'll try another full load tonight before looking into Hinges, though they seem fine on inspection.

 

Thanks a million
