    My washer washes but will not go into spin cycle or drain the water. You can hear that it is trying to drain but then just stops. How do I fix this?

  • krhbryant Oct 28, 2008

    The water does not drain out leaves clothes wet, When wash cycle is over it sounds like it want s to drain but isnt draining, then will start to spin but not a fast spin. It will sit there and make a sound like it is trying to drain the ater out.

    Washer will complete wash cycle, drains, spins slowly, but then shuts off.

  • philzee May 11, 2010

    it sounds like a problem with either the motor or the drivebelt.....Do you hear the motor speeding up as if it's spinning but the drum doesnt spin?, or is there no noise from the motor at all?

Looks like chat support session must have timed out. The answer to your last question was, yes, pres. analog switch with a red, a white, and a blue wire to it.

    During our chat session, you never indicated the wash tub moved at all when it was time to spin, only that the machine did pump out and did not spin. Can not give out good help when full info is not disclosed. You'll have to find another helper, I stop helping when you lock in a thanks for trying. Good luck. Next time don't be so fast to lock in your rating.

    Oh, and now you think all my efforts to date are inappropriate? I'll let you know that we experts are not employees of FixYa. We offer free advise to many many people, and low cost help to many others and do have other full time jobs we must attend to, so responses are often not as fast as you might expect. I did leave our original chat line open, waited for a half hour, then finally had to leave to repair a washer. When I got back, I saw you had posted and then closed the chat. Then you post a rating and change it twice? I certainly could give further advise, but why should I? It's not worth my time to attempt to help you any more. Call a local repair service if you can't deal with the constraints of FixYa or similar online help.

    I see the chat session was rated helpful, which I agree is fair, but what I didn't like was the change from Thanks for Trying to FixYa and then to Inappropriate all within 24 hours on this thread http://www.fixya.com/support/t1177657-wa....



    By the way, from what you have said and now checked, it sounds like you have a problem with the motor control board. Contact a Frigidair dealer to see if they can locate one for that model. (my parts supplier shows it as no longer available)

    Thanks for changing your rating to a FixYa. Hope you are able to find a part for your machine. If not, look into the front loaders by LG, which are the highest rated by consumer reports and use a direct drive motor (with a 7 year warranty on the motor). Even their lower end machines are very good.

It can be the motor coupler, the coupler should be checked and eventually replaced.

Check also the lid switch.

See It pumps, but doesn't spin.

Two possibles here, if the drain pump is clogged and therefore the unit will not go into a spin. After pumping, it will error out and just shut off. If the pump is ok, then the motor control unit has failed.

Kenmore Series 70 Top Loading Washing Machine Model # 110.20722991 Serial# CL 1134809 Hello, Our washing machine is leaving our clothes soaking wet when finished. What could the problem be?


2 things are possible. Can you tell if the spin cycle is engaging? If the spin cycle is not engaging properly or very fast, then the water will not leave the clothes. less likely is that the machine is not draining the water away properly or fast enough.

Kenmore elite model 11027052602 clothes wet after spinning cycle why


You might have a restriction in the outlet hose. Worse, you might have a bad pump.
It is easy to check for the constriction. Pour water into the tub, set the timer for the spin cycle and watch how strong/fast the water leaves the hose. Check for water beneath the tub.

Why are clothes soaking wet?


Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.


Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)

Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.

On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Kenmore warsher, Model num 110.14202300, not drain or spin


The clothes too wet after spin cycle tells me that the water ump is functioning. If it wasn't, there would still be lots of water in the machine when the cycle ended. These Kenmores have the water pump mounted on one side of the electric drive motor and the transmission, drive shaft, and agitator on the other side. The transmission is fastened to the motor by a "coupler", a three piece assy that often breaks. This common failure allows the machine to complete a cycle, however, because of the broken coupler, there is no drive to the tub and no spin or agitate. The clothes seem wet because the spin motion is supposed to provide the force to extract the excess moisture. Leave the lid open and verify that there is no agitate or spin.(During spin cycle use a pen to press down on the safety interlock, a small opening on the the of the machine, toollow the unit to spin with the lid open). If you verify this, flip the machine over and locate the coulper on one side of the motor. One side will be cracked along the shaft. Sears parts stores carry the coupler in stock. ($18.50) Hope this helps.

After the spin cycle runs the clothes are still soaking wet


I had that problem at one time with my old washer and what it ended up being was the Washer Dog Agitators were broken and causing the it to slip and not spin correctly. I would try checking the Dog Agitators.
Here's A picture of a typical top-load washer breakdown to show you where they are located --->Here<---
I hope this helps. If that is the problem I bought mine at Sears for about $8, normally in stock item.
moz-screenshot-2.jpgLet me know if there is anything else I can do.

Whirlpool Duet Washer won't spin


Sounds like the whirling noise is the pump, pumping. Does it drain at all? Check the drive belt and make sure that it is not broken. This system uses a drive belt with a clutch system to agitate back and forth. The clutch system could be bad as well.

This might not be a cheap fix, these are the main components of the system

Old model rca washer machine...will not agitate/wash the clothes,does spin.


If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.
