Why does my washing machine pour water during the spin cycle?

Overview

My washing machine has an issue where it pours water during the spin cycle, while it is draining. Basically, it pours water from the top while draining it out from the bottom. It drains the water faster than it can pour it, so it does not actually fill with water, but it does re-wet the clothes, so the clothes are dripping wet when the cycle is complete.

It also agitates while filling with water. This is not much of a problem, but it started happening the same time that the other issue above started happening.

Specs

Model: Kenmore Elite 26964503

Desired Outcome

This is what the washing machine is supposed to do:

  1. Wash Cycle
    1. Fill with water.
    2. When full, begin agitating.
    3. After a while, drain water.
  2. Rinse Cycle
    1. Fill with water.
    2. When full, begin agitating.
    3. After a while, drain water.
  3. Spin Cycle
    1. Spin while draining water.
    2. When empty, continue spinning and draining.
    3. After a while, stop.

Actual Outcome

This is what the washing machine actually does (the bold text marks the differences):

  1. Wash Cycle
    1. Fill with water while agitating.
    2. When full, continue agitating.
    3. After a while, drain water.
  2. Rinse Cycle
    1. Fill with water while agitating.
    2. When full, continue agitating.
    3. After a while, drain water.
  3. Spin Cycle
    1. Spin while draining water.
    2. When empty, continue spinning and draining but also begin pouring water from top.
    3. After a while, stop.

Summary

The main problem is 3-2: in the spin cycle, the machine begins to pour water after it has drained all of the water. It is not supposed to be pouring water at this point; it defeats the purpose of the spin cycle.

What could this be? What would cause it to pour water during the spin cycle?

If the spin light is flashing it means the load is unbalanced and it’s trying to fix itself. It will be “ the cycle that never ends.” Push pause, move stuff around or take something out and restart

Same problem with my washer and I was directed to buy contact cleaner because the switch that controlled this function was thought to be sticking, which it probably was because after I bought the cleaner and learned what contact needed to be sprayed, it stopped sticking (on it’s own) and now after the initial water squirt at the beginning of the spin cycle, it shuts off and just spins out the clothes like it’s supposed to . At some point it will probably start sticking again and I will have to pop the top of the control panel off and spray the sticking part and hope that it works. If not the switch will have to be replace or the whole machine. I had this machine apart a year ago to fix the clutch because it wasn’t spinning at all. Not sure how long that repair will last but as my father used to say “that machine doesn’t owe me anything”.

My washing machine just don't keep water as soon as the water comes in it also goes out without washing or doing anything at all

I have the same issue here

@Michael Olutade Your problem is do to the drain hose not being high enough from the floor. When drain hose is not high enough, gravity will siphon water out of the washer.

Every washer that I know will spray water over the clothes while it spins but only for a short time. It’s all part of rinsing detergent from clothes. No matter what, the clothes should only be damp after cycle is complete and not dripping wet. Spraying water while spinning is a good way to help remove soap from clothes. Most of the soap is removed on the second fill up. (rinse cycle) During the last 5 minutes of spin time, no water should be spraying on clothes. Never add water to the washer while it spins. Only the washer knows how much water is safe to use before motor over loads and burns out. Also, a Kenmore washer will fill and agitate at the same time on a permanent press cycle. Water line is usually half way up before both happens.

this is NOt a malfunction, many washers today either dont have a regular rinse and instead drain the. while spinning spray water to rinse the clothes , it saves water and is more effective then the old way of filling with water and agitation to rinse and some have both they will have a regular rinse and a spray rinse . now if the water pours the entire final spin then something is wrong a spray rinse doesn't last the entire spin cycle

Ok, so looking up your model number tells me that your washer is a direct drive Whirlpool on the inside. I would suspect the timer is getting to the end of its life. Part number WP8541110, over 100 bucks new from a supply house, maybe 50 bucks used on eBay. Could be the pressure switch, but I doubt it.

I have an LG top loader model th2519ssak and having the same issue, spinning and spraying water occasionally and it doesn't end or taking too long to complete the spin. Any idea why this happens?

About a month ago I removed the top panel cover to access the the timer mechanism. I unplugged the power cord and put a paper towel under the timer. I sprayed contact cleaner in every opening I could find and spun the timer several times. After letting it dry for an hour I put everything back together and ran the washer through a cycle - same problem - argh. But ever since then (dozens of loads) it's been running fine. I think it was just a buildup of carbon dirt on some of the timer contacts that was causing my problem.

I’m not sure why but mine does same thing and my clothes are soaking wet when it’s done. Tried using the drain & spin cycle but still adds more water and they’re still sopping wet. It’s ridiculous!! I’ve stood here and watched water go into my clothes that were already soaked and too wet for the dryer and yet it’s still putting more water in there. Can’t it just wring out the darn clothes?!?!
