Washer does not spin

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Jan 02, 2009

    Mine doesn't spin on it's own either but putting a screw driver or knife in the locking mechanism allows it to run with the lid open and if I manually start the tub spinning on the slow spin cycle, the machine takes over once the water drains down so far. The machine is 15+ years old so I'm guessing it's a loose belt.

SOURCE: Is there a lint filter/catcher

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Probably!
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Frigidaire Gallery washer won't produce final high spin


Hey friend, thank you for your post!
I see that your Frigidaire washer, FWT449GFS2 is not entering the final high spin cycle. It is possible that you could have a defective motor or timer. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend you having a professional come out to the home for the repair of your washer. -Matt

Hello - Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned, or you have another issue with the door lock assembly or the timer and control board not communicating correctly. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Washer won't spin in final spin out


Hello harley1964dm
Welcome

You said, you have a Frigidaire front loader and it will not spin out in the final spin would you please help me. thanks

For a Frigidaire usually ,
If the washer won't spin.
Many times it's because the load is too small. Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.
If it does not remedy the problem try unplugging the machine for 5 minutes which will reset the system!

Let me now how it goes.
Huuum
