Washer spin cycle slams while ending

My washer works perfectly, except that it comes to a "slamming" stop when the spin cycle ends. The intensity of the slamming seems to be getting worse. Help?

    So, while looking in the washing machine, I finally looked up rather than down and realized that at least one of the damper straps was broken. Upon further inspection, I see that at least 2 of the straps are broken. I'm going to replace those and hope for the best for now.

    This was a used washer that I purchased.

    I now know never to buy a GE washer/dryer, especially not used. The mechanical parts inside are also a bit rusty. Is there anything I can/should do about that?

    Thank you for all of your help!

Gayle, sounds like your trans-brake assy. is binding up. I would remove the front panel, push in on the two clips just below the top on each side and pull the panel forward. Take a look under the tub and see if it has been leaking onto the trans-brake assy. You will see water marks or rust if so. If this is the case, trans should be under warranty for 5 years. If it's out of warranty, I would not invest in fixing it. Part number for the assy. is WH38x55. Look it up on the net and check it back.

My washing machine fills up with water but does not continue the wash cycle. Sometimes when you slam the lid the washer will continue the wash cycle to the end. Other times the washer stays filled up...

Sounds like the lid safety switch is either out of adjustment, or needs replacement.

Most washers will fill with the lid open, but no continue a cycle where the drum or agitator spin, unless it senses the lid is closed.

:) ok do this,,unplug the machine .. pop the lid up, not the door , the whole lid,, you will see where the safety switch is,, this is just a pass through switch and can either be jumpered or by passed to check them, locate the plug connection for the switch ,, use a wire to make a U shape and push one end of each end into the connector ( one in each side,, make sure that the 2 wires don't touch,, ) and remember to do this to the side of the machine, Not the part that goes back to the switch,, then plug the machine back in, and set it to the spin cycle,, if this works, just replace the switch

Washer will not spin The washer is a frigidaire front loader model LTF2140E53. will cycle through all settings, but will not spin. Cycle ends with clothes soaked.

I have thata probelm a lot too. I have read that the controls don't sense that the door fully shut. You might try slamming it shut, jiggling the door, poking in the hole where the latch goes. When mine won;t spin, slamming and jiggling works.

The washer quits at rinse and spin dry cycle

I've had the same experience with my Speed Queen washer. Approached the accredited Speed Queen agents for assistance, when tech support was deployed to diagnose the problem.
In the end, I was told that the "timer" went bust. So the wash cycle seems to work 100%, but when it comes to rinse and spin the contacts on the timer don't make contact, and the motor waits in anticipation for it's next command, and that the high pitch noise heard.

When my maytag washer gets to the end of the spin cycle instead of spinning slowly to a stop it will slam hard to a stop.

I believe that is what it is supposed to do to prevent peeps from getting hurt.

A humming sound in the cycle knob

Make sure that the room is quiet then check that there is a clicking noise from the lid when it is nearly closed

If not then the microswitch is out of whack and needs adjusting

When you slam the door down it is probably enough to make the switch but then the machines movement will undo that action

Kenmore washer will not go to rinse cycle. 70 series

I had the same problem and it was a broken switch that prevents the washing machine from going into spin with the the top door open. The switch is located in the upper left corner, you can see 2 screws that hold it in. Reach under and check that the middle point when pressed pulls the ends where the actual switch is, you should hear a click.

I was able to temporarly repair by focing the swtich to always be depressed with 2 strips of duct tape. - Warning the washer will go into spin cycle with the top open.

Will not go pass the wash cycle to spin or drain

There is at least one safety switch activated by the lid.
Depending on machine construction, these are somewhat exposed to water incursion that eventually causes them to fail.
The slamming of the lid is causing the failing switch to make enough contact to allow it to spin.

If you are lucky (I don't know your machine), these may be located toward the rear of the housing where they can be fairly easily replaced.
