Question about Washing Machines

Washing machine won't spin or agitate

When I go to spin or agitate the drum moves round a tiny bit and I can hear the motor trying to turn, but not managing. I've checked the filter, drained the machine fully, checked the belt and carbon brushes and all are fine.

I ran the motor with the back off the machine and can see that it does try to turn, but stops.

Please help! Thanks, M

    Thanks for replying, no it doesn't work without the belt either. I think I have guarantee for the parts still so probably best to call someone in I think.

Hi.

Sounds to me that you have a faulty motor from the symptons.

Does it work without the belt on?

Hello, I have a Maytag Bravos MVWX550XW washer that will not rinse or spin, only wash. The drum moves. I replaced the washer inlet valve, did not fix the problem. Removed the lid switch assembly...


hi Melanie.
this is all i could find out.
If the water won't drain out of your washing machine, either something is stuck in the drain hose or pump, or the pump is broken. Both fixes are simple if you're even just a little bit handy with tools. We're showing the repair on a Maytag washing machine.

What is wrong with a washer that does not spin? If your washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drive washing machines do not have belts.) To diagnose the problem, do the following: 1Check the washing machine's spin cycle

Frigidaire Gallery front loader washing machine won't spin, any ideas?


No spin, try these:

Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.

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.

Beko WMI71641 won't agitate or spin - drum doesn't move!


your pump is blocked,at bottom of machine there should be a flap with a round plug in middle .unscrew,it will have water come out so use a bowl or big towel.the impeller should turn freely,once plug is unscrewed at front put washer into a drain program see if the pump turns.if this is free youll need to get the pump off(unplug machine first)and then feel inside the big pipe from the drum to pump.it may have a sock or something like inside.this means it will work but wont get out all the water.also note when trying to spin a pillow,or big towel the load will be uneven so it will reduce its spin speed so it doesnt destroy its self

My Candy automatic washing machine will not spin


Try the drive belt from motor to the drum it could have stretched a little? The noise you can hear could be the heating element catching the inner drum or something like a wire from a bra came loose in a wash and is trapped between the drums ?

There is a clutch which is mechanically engaged to stop the drum during agitation.

If the location pin is worn or bent it fails to engage and the machine tries to wash and spin at the same time.

Only solution is to call for a man who can fit a new clutch assy

Kenmore Series 80 top loading washer that doesn't spin or agitate


Unplug machine, remove water pump and motor, behind the motor is a coupler, take broken parts to your local appliance parts store. Costs 16 bucks, replace the broken parts with new ones, reassemble machine. Never ever do a blanket/comforter in your machine again!!
