Drum spins once and stops

On any program the machine fills, the drum spins once then it stops. Pressing start - the drum spins once again then stops. Programs end light then comes on. Any ideas?

Re: Drum spins once and stops

Hi there i recondition hundreds of these machines a year and i can tell you that your problem is the module board which has short circuited due to a wiring problem or depending on the type of motor that was fitted. you looking at a lot of money there is no easy fix to this problem.

How do I stop my washing machine from stopping and showing an error code E20 when it gets to the spin part of the cycle?

These type of machines now have a balance sensor fitted, if you have to much in the drum, or like I did once washed just a single bathroom mat, the drum sensed that the single item fell against the drum making it uneven & stop the spin to protect itself, this could be the problem, try taking some out or even putting more in to even out the wash? if this does not cure it, then you may need to get the error code reset, unfortunately only a washing machine mechanic has the ability to do this, I don't agree with these tatics, but you cant get round it, some can be got from the web.

I dont have a stop buttom

You're start/pause button should pause the cycle, cancell should completely cancell. After pressing the Start/Pause within a cycle, the door lock may require time to unlock as indicated by the lock light on the panel.

I have a maytag LSE7806AEE that stopped after filling the washing machine with water. I have tried everything to get it started but it will not respond.

since you can get water going, power is ok. Once water is filled, it should start automatically. Sine the drum is not moving to wash the load, it is down to drum mechanism. BTW if you manually move the knob to spin what happens?

WFD 2460 will not start wash cycle after it has filled with water

Isolate power and water supply and gain access to the main drum motor. Check for condition of carbon brushes by removing them and repla
ce if severely worn. Check wiring loom around motor and right back to module controller. The clicking is obviously power being supplied to motor via the loom to the motor. finally check for any dry solder joints or burnt areas on the circuit board controlling the motor.

Washer won't spin correctly after fitting new bearings

there are no others sensors in the drum, the module (a circuit board) controls the actions of the timer, it may be one or so wires were disturbed at the time of repair, check all connections, any out of balance sensors would only work with a heavy loaded drum? You did not comment as to the motor / drum action when washing from the start of the cycle?

problem may just be that drum is not turning so you think program is stopped. try cancelling and select spin program and see if you get spin
