Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
First of all check if the motor is running or not when you turn on
the motor. If the motor is not turning on then this problem is due to fault in
the motor. But if the motor is getting on and running properly then most
probably this problem relates to stuck up or cracked drain pump pulley. It needs to be checked but if the pump pulley is functioning
properly then check the drain pump belt. If the drain pump belt is worn out or
loose or cracked/broken then it needs to replace. But if the motor is not running
then before replacing the motor check the lid switch. There is a lid switch in
the washer. The washing machine will not start spinning till the lid is closed.
In some cases it has been seen that lid is closed still the washer does
not spin. in this cases the lid switch has to be checked. if the lid
switch is faulty then the closed lid will not be detected by the washing machine,
and it will not start spin cycle. And this faulty lid switch can stop the motor
The switch is located near the door frame in the washing machine.
This will help.thanks.
