Won't spin or drain

bought 2 new bath towels and 2 hand towels yesterday and threw them in to wash. The machine will wash but won't drain.It gets to the drain cycle and starts beeping, I tried resetting it and that didn't work. I blew thru the drain hose and air is coming into the washer. There is tons of lint in the water so I have bailed out all the water and now what? I'm a bit confused as to how to check the pump. Someone please help before I register for the looney bin!
Thanks,
Terri

Hi

This type of issues usually occur when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 2 cups of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the bleach marks should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Very noisy on spin cycle, not out of balance


Hi, check leveling of machine, machine should be proper leveled on all side, use spirit level to adjust legs, there should be no rocking motion, in any direction after leveling, put hands on top of machine and try to rock it sids to side, there should be no movements, also check for overloading, be careful when washing things like bath towels, etc, they absorb lots of water, eg. one regular bath towel are equivalent, to six pants, six tops. or possible springs or bushings broken, you need open machine and check.

Laod with bath towels won't spin out


hi, you may find that the towels when wet are to heavy for the belt to grip the drum if it spins with normal clothes in you need to reduce the load when you wash your towels, hope this helps.

Washer not fully draining, even with extra drain/spin cycle...


Hi easterbunch;
Im sorry to have to tell you but that is one of the inherant faults of the duet line of machines. It is a safety guard that the machine sences as a unevenly distributed load, and prevents the unit from spinning up to full rpm's The next time you need to do a small load throw a bath towel or two in with it and you wonrt have any problems with it spinning up to full speed.
Hope this helps :-)

Doesn't spin the clothes dry on the final spin but spins at high revolutions without a load of clothes


I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....
