    Default cabrio

    Model - WTW5640XW0

    Complaint was not spinning all the water out and having to run spin cycle two times.

    I removed and disassembled the pump to look for obstruction, found none. Belt seems okay, might have 3/8 to 1/2" play slack or down. I did notice the tub ring has been scrubbed somehow and has like a ridge partly around it. You can break this rough area off by hand. Is the an indication of overloading or running the machine off balanced?


    Does the water go straight from the tub to the pump, or does it have a filter of some sort? I don't recall seeing one on the diagram for this machine.

    I did notice, while looking for something between the tub and the pump, the wash plate (?0 did not want to come off, and the screw was very tight coming off. I never did get the wash plate off. Not sure the screw is screwed all the way down as the plate still has play in it.

    Comments?

    Yes and yes. Sometimes if wrong soap is used a wall of water is created causing balance issues.

    #14 is a filter...

    Thanks, Jeff. What do you suggest I do to get the wash plate off, spray with penetrating oil and let soak? If I put a strap under it and pull upward, will it break the plate?

    I had attempted to remove it looking for a filter, so I was on the right track.

    That sounds like a good plan.

    Possible yes....but worth a shot!

    I make sure things are warmed up a little before trying to force the plate off. Plastic can get pretty brittle when cold.

    Is the screw normally this tough to get get out? This one seemed tight almost all the way out. Guess it had started rusting.

    Well sprayed the plate with penetrating oil and got it off. Can't get the inner tub out. Like to never have gotten the top raised. 'bout ready to toss this d...ang thing!

    With the tub nut off...ah, nevermind...for now.

    Should just lift out.

    ...and with everything being plastic you can't add any heat to help loosen things up.

    Yeah, I thought it would just lift out. Maybe sparaying it and letting it set a while will help.
