Magic Chef W20HN3S spin cycle problem

On every spin cycle on my washer, it spins for a few minutes, but then there is a loud screeching noise and it stops spinning. It does not start back up, and a couple inches of water are left in the tub. I can manually move it to the next spin cycle, but the same thing happens. Any ideas?

    I started with the same problem, and know the spin cycle rarely works.

    on any of the wash cycles. I keep playing with it, It took me 4 hours to wash 2 medium loads of laundry yeaterday.

SOURCE: Tub does not spin but agitates

Sounds like the door switch is either loose or faulty. The door switch keeps the tub from spinning with door/lid open.

Based off the information you have provided you are hearing a loud screeching noise during the spin cycle on your Electrolux washer. You will hear a certain amount of motor whine during the spin cycle this is a normal operation of your appliance. -Matt

Kenmore 90 plus series washer won't spin, barely agitates, will drain - but makes loud noise


It sounds like the transmission is done. Can't pinpoint what it is exactly, but I would start there.

My washing machine drains but does not spin


Look for a motor belt that is worn out and make sure that the drum turns freely (machine off).

Magic Chef Clothes washer model CAV2004AWW


Something locked up on the transmission then the drive belt broke. Put on a new belt and try a spin cycle, if it works but it won't agitate then the trans will need replaced.
