    Thanks I unblocked the pump but now it wont spin everything else works except for the rinse cycle and every time it spins it knocks something and ends back on rinse i think i need a new washing machine.

    Its a top loader its hitting a leaver which i think is some sort of safety leaver because if you push the leaver back it stops the washing machine.

You drain pump may be full of the rug stuff you will need to open the washer and the remove drain hose to remove what is stuck in the pump.... I have used a shop wet/dry vaccum put on the drain hose to remove stuff... but it will not always work...

good luck

Severe vibration/noise during spin cycle. What could the problem be and how do I fix it?


if the machine was run severely out of balance (rugs) you'll need to get a look in the back up near the top with a good flashlight , this involves unhooking power and hoses and turning it around , you may have broken a drum suspension link , this device (three) keeps the drum from contacting the shell , if its true and its allowed to run this way you will brake off water hoses on bottom of drum and water will runout on floor

Washer won't spin. Washed bath mats (small) and


Read a post from someone else on this - turned out it works fine, just wouldn't work with the small wet load. I added towels to the bath mat load, washed them, it spins fine. Washed clothes & that worked fine too. Yay!! Not broken. Just not found of small loads of bath mats!

When I put towels or rugs in the washer the cycle show complete, but when I open it the items are soaking wet.


Its probably because the items are too heavy for the washer to safely spin.

If you squeeze some of the water out of them into a sink then put it on spin cycle, it should work. Otherwise spin them in two loads. Its a bit of a pain but its to protect the washing machine mechanical parts.

Hope that helps!

How do you wash one rug? I can't get the machine


You dont say how big this rug is, but I am guessing its not big enough to spreadevenly around the machine. The machine senses an imbalance and willo not spin or failos to spin at a rate that would rekove the water. Try adding some balance to the drum with another object that will evenly spread the load to see if that helops to get rid of the sopping water.
BTW any pictures of you whipping the rug around in the backyard? That should make for Utube fame!

Put too heavy a load in the washer...now wont work


I had this happen a lot at my laundromats... People got a little over zealous. . First, we need to get your rugs out of the machine. This will be a little wet... do you have any 5 gallon buckets? I would take one out at at time, and put them into the 5 gallon pail. This will be a wet job... but not much way around it.. Take them outside and wring them out and we'll get your machine going...maybe you can do one at a time afterward.. Once all the rugs are out, try to start your machine... maybe just close the lid and see if it will operate,,, but watch it when it starts and when it begins to spin... Make sure there is no water emptying on the floor If the water drains out of the machine during the spin cycle, then you may be ok. Try a small load after that. If you can't get any action at the machine at all, check the circuit breaker in the electrical panel or subpanel in your home... make sure if the breaker is tripped, to turn it firmly to the off position and then back on. If you get a machine that will operate, but won't empty properly, it's time to change the belts. I can help you with that if you need. Feel free to send me a note if you need further help, okay. Good luck on this.

Washing Machine Moves in Spin Cycle


There are 2 things you can do.
All washing machines have an off balance shut off, some are touchy, some let it run around the house. With wht machine empty, lean it towards you, on the 2 front feet, about 2 or 3 inches and let it drop. The self leveling feet in the rear must BOTH make good floor gontact and sometimes, just the weight of the machine will not adjust them. The other thing is, make sure the load is evenly distributed. Coats, blankets, small rugs etc. are very heavy when wet and they tend to throw all of the weight to one side.
There is no screw holding the yub in place. It hangs on the center post, where the agitator goes. There is however, what's called a snubber. It is a rubber device that looks like a flattened suction cup, that comes in contact with the tub. It helps keep the tub from jumping around too much.

Not going into high spin with any weight in it


I have had the same problem with my front loader. The rug is too heavy and the drum isn't balanced. Try adding more items to the wash and it will spin.
