2 Answers

My washing machine agaitates to wash the clothes but it does not spin to wring out the clothes at the end of the cycle it just stops. I dont know why it does this the washer is only 2 years old. As a result of this my clothes are clean but they are still soaking wet and I have to wring them out myself. Is there any one that can tell me what the problem is or what part I need to have repaired.

Dear Customer,
I recommend you to follow the below stated routines

  • Test the lid switch
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the centrifugal switch
  • Test the water level switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission

  • And as for the clothes being wet after the spin..This may be a spin problem or a drain problem

    • Make sure the drain line is clear
    • Check the drain hose for a partial blockage
    • Inspect the water pump
    • Test the lid switch
    • Test the timer control
    • Test the centrifugal switch
    • Test the water level switch
    • Inspect the motor coupler
    • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
    • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
    • Test the motor
    • Inspect the pulley
    • Test the transmission

    Ge toploadwasher that does not get water out of clothes after final spin

    Could be that the spin cycle is not rotating at the required speed to wring out your clothes. Check that the cycle completes at a significant speed to generate centripetal acceleration forcing out the water. Perhaps the load is unbalanced which can trigger the spinning cycle to repeatedly stop during the spin cycle.

    The spin cycle on my washing machine is not working, the clothes are still wet when the cycle is finished

    Make sure that the clothes are not too heavy ( jeans and sweats ), and put in the machine evenly. If the machine is off balance, it won't spin fast enough to wring out the clothes.

    Spinning fast and furious, just doesn't wring clothes dry

    It sounds like you need a water pump!
    See if it's pumping water next time you do load by looking at the discharge hose going to the drainage pipe and get back to me!
