I have a GE washing machine. I've recently noticed that when the
waching machine has completed it's job and all the water has drained
from the tub that there still seems to be some water somwhere else in
the machine. For example, when I shake the agitator/tub, I hear a
sloshing water sound. I don't remember hearing that before. Is this
normal? If not, what is the problem and how do I fix it?
All top load washers leave some water in the outer tub, but you can't
see it below the basket. Same for front load washers. The pumps just
aren't efficient enough to remove every last drop. And some washers
use balance rings that contain water, so you hear sloshing if moving
the basket while empty. If your washer is performing correctly, then I
wouldn't worry about the sound.
also the pump is low in the washer and pumps the water up and out into
the drain hose...
when the pump shuts off, whatever water is left in the drain hose will
flow back down into the washer into the outer tub...
this is normal..
