hi there,

sounds like you may have something caught between the tumbler and the cabinet. since the drum has holes in it, can you have a look if you can see anything that's come of clothing, like a bra wire. it's usually something bigger.

SOURCE: 2320l hoover washing machine wont spin fast to dain all water ...on any program ...all other things ok ...can hear grinding noise when washing ..dont use machine at moment ..like metal rubbing:)

If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.

  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. 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.

It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

  • 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.

It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.

SOURCE: my Hoover washing machine 800RL spin cycle is slow

Check and see if the bowl spins as fast as the agitator (hold a screwdriver in the lid limit switch to bypass) You may also notice clothes are severely knotted. If the bowl is slow and agitator fast then ther is a problem with the gearbox. If you know how to fix this, or remove the gearbox, please let me know.

Hi just read your posting.Now the only way to drain your machine if it is not draining is to do it by hand with a small pot or bucket. Do you hear a small click when you close the lid slowly?If you do then that is the lid switch.It will not drain if your lid switch is not activating.Did you wash a big load before the problem started?Also could be a faulty or jammed drain pump.I can guide you throe the removal of the pump to see if it is the problem if you have some tools available.Please reply after you have tested the lid switch and I can guide you throe the rest of the repair if needed.

SOURCE: Washer will not spin. It makes a noise but will

The motor coupling has gone bad, this is very common.
Can you handle this yourself? it is not a very expensive repair but you have to be mechanically inclined and a repair comes with a warranty. The part is around $25.00 and a service call to repair!

My 4 year old roper washer leaves grease on clothes. On spin cycle the machine makes a screaching noise, and the clothes don't spin dry.


Possible that the belt is slipping and also there is some issue with the agitator as the gaps within seems to bring up the dirt or grease mix to the clothes.
So it is important to remove the panel and check the play on the belt, replace if the play is high and check if the agitator bearings are worn out. If so the agitator assembly must be taken out and checked.

While in spin cycle it makes clickety clack noise


Most likely something stuck in the drain pump. Remove the drain pump and inspect the inside of the pump for a foreign object.

My front load lg model #wm2277hw will not spin, it tries to but just makes noise. At first it started washing and I went back a few minutes later and it had stopped with the code le. I did not have many...


I am having the same problem, and am getting it fixed today. It has to do with the hub, which is on the back of the motor. You can try to tighten the bolt on the hub. Take off the back of the machine and tighten the bolt. If that doesn't work, you need to call a repair man because it can ruin the groves inside the hub making it necessary to replace it.
