Top Reasons Your Washing Machine Is Leaving Clothes Wet

Find out the top causes of a washing machine leaving laundry too wet.
Does your washing machine leave your clothes soaking wet? If you’re pulling out soggy loads of laundry that take more than one dryer cycle to actually dry, there could be something wrong with your machine.

There are some things you can check very easily that just might take care of the problem.
  • Check the cycle used. If possible, switch to a higher-speed spin cycle
  • Make sure the drain hose isn’t kinked or restricted.
  • Check the size of the load. An overloaded or underloaded washer can become unbalanced and spin at a reduced speed. Add, remove or redistribute items and start a drain and spin cycle.
  • Don’t use an extension cord. Extension cords can cause overheating and machine shutdowns.
Causes of Suds in Washer and Tips to Eliminate

When it comes to laundry, sometimes there can be too much added to the load to assure your clothing & linens get clean. You might think extra detergent means extra-clean clothes, but that’s not the case. Using too much detergent may lead to too many suds, which can leave residue on your clothes and cause serious problems for your washing machine.

Another cause of too many suds is using non-HE detergent when you’ve got a high-efficiency machine.

Remember to consult your owner’s manual first for information on how to properly care for your specific appliance. If you seem to be doing everything right and are still having problems, call in the experts to take a look.
