maytag front load washer
« on: May 29, 2014, 08:20:31 PM »

Spins and dies everything normal except the clothes are still wet after its done. Sounds like water is still in the machine.  I checked the water Pump and it was clear.  The inside rotates. But when I took off the hoses to the pump, the water did not drain out, so there's water still in the machine without the pump being connected. Please help,

Thanks so much for the info. I have to check on the model #. I also had a typo in my first post. It does everything correctly except the clothes come out still wet. With a mildew smell.

The water you hear in the machine is a water ballast contained in the inner tub. You will hear water when you turn the tub but that is normal. Inside the timer panel area is where the tech sheet is and a diagnostic sheet.

Remove one of the tub baffles and see if there is something blocking the the outlet in the sump area.
