This is normal.
Did you select
a Warm/Warm
temperature
setting?
On
models
without
AUTO TEMPERATURE
CONTROL
(ATC) that
do have a Warm/Warm
temperature
selection,
the warm wash
will
be followed
by an energy saving cold
rinse followed
by
warm spray rinses. This saves energy whUe providing
the
same rinse performance.
Load too wet
Did you use the right cycle
for
the load being washed?
Select a cycle
with a higher spin speed (if available).
Did you use a cold
rinse?
Cold rinses leave loads wetter
than warm rinses. This is normal.
Residue
or lint on load
Did you sort properly?
Sort lint givers (towels,
chenille) from
lint takers (corduroy,
synthetics).
Also sort by color.

the washer?
The wash load must be
balanced
and not overloaded.
Clothes
should
move freely.
Lint can be trapped
