  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


  • The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.


  • A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)


  • The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.


  • The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.


  • The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.


  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

    Why won't Affinity fill or spin?


    Probably there is water in the drum or the pressure switch is jam in a state of "full of water" or washing machine didn't drain water .. So, the fault should be sought in the elements responsible for control the level (pressure switch, pcb...etc.) or control draining water (drain pump, pcb, filter....etc.).
    The precondition that the machine goes into a spin cycle is that pressure switch folded down to position "empty of water".

    Hi my Zanussi ZWG 1120M washing machine has stopped spinning, no error code is displayed, what could this be?


    First check if the water remaining in the drum?
    If it is, then the fault is in the drain phase (drain pump,filter...etc.) before the spining cycle.
    Otherwise, faulty is motor, belt, electronic....etc.
    By the way, model is unknown to me.

    My LG Washing machine is not spinning. It also comes up with OE. Can you help


    Check to see if the drain pump or drain pump filter are clogged. Sometimes objects that are put into the washing machine, for example combs, money, hair pins, etc. end up in the filter. Finally, if the drain line is clear and the pump seems to be clear and functioning properly, you may need to replace the drain pump assembly.
    The most common problem with spinning on this model machine is the tub bearing. Normally it would be very noisy when it did spin.
    Massive job to replace it.

    Will not drain. it does'nt look like its spinning very fast.


    The washing machine not draining water.This problem is related to few possibilities. 1) The drain pump is got loose to the drain hose. check the connection from drain hose to drain pump. 2) The drain is blocked by any thing.Like cloth or any thing like metallic nails or coils etc etc. 3) The drain hose is got blocked./The drain hose is not letting the water to enter the drain pump. In most of the cases the drain pump has to be removed and checked for any kind of blockages.Also if the machine not draining can effect the spin cycle.But other possibilities for no spin or slow spin are faulty or broken motor coupler or weak spin motor.The motor coupler and motor both can be possible,if the drain pump and drain hose both checked ok.This will clear the fault. ----------- Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks,.

    My aeg lavamat L14710 VIT only spins at a very low speed ! does this mean that the motor needs replacing ? how can I verify ?


    Does the machine seem to be draining (pump running) fairly quickly as the spin cycle begins? If not, the machine will sense the high water level and prevent the motor from turning rapidly. Check the drain hoses and pump for clogs, pinched hoses, plugged filter, etc.. Hope this helps!

    Washer will not finish its rinse or spin cycle


    Check that water can drain out of the machine
    1/ Check that the filter is not blocked
    2/ Check drain motor is working (ie. not blocked with coins or hairpins etc)
    3/ Check that pipe from tub to filter is not blocked (I had a sock blocking mine)
    4/ If there is water in the filter and the drain motor runs then check that waste water hose is not blocked.

    Shaking and Spinning Unevenly


    Beneath the front panel you may find screws. To have access to your filter. Check the drain to make sure it isn't clogged, also the drain hose.

    Re the shaking, etc you have to check for any dampers (shocks) that have come off or broken, also springs.
