If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.


  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


  • The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.


  • A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)


  • The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.


  • The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.


  • The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.


  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.


It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.

Machine worked fine to start with . Then stopped. Will fill water but drum wont turn on a wash cycle. And wont spin on spin cycle.But Belt seems fine. Can you help.


The pump needs to be replaced. The pump controls the agitation for the wash cycle, also controls the tub for draining & spinning after the wash & rinse cycle. The belt has nothing to do with it. Pump is very simple to remove & replace, and not too expensive, it's plastic.

Hi i have a hoover washing machine hnf 6127 it functions perfectly but wont spin the drum goes round on the wash cycles but will not pick up speed on the spin i have checked the filter is not blocked


If it is not picking up speed on the spin cycle then it is the motor or the belt. check the belt first for proper tension and make sure the motor has the proper output. I think something is slipping and not transferring torque to the tub.

My Hoover 750 washing machine does not spin any more. What would cause that and can I fix it with a new part?


Hello.

The answer to your question is YES.

And below is the instruction on how to solve the problem.

The Hoover750 is a washing machine that offers many standard features and a few additional options, including energy saving cycles, variable spin and water pressure options and pre-wash, extra rinse and timer features. Available online and in select appliance, department or home retail stores, the Hoover washing machine should function well with basic maintenance and care. However, if individuals experience problems with the machine, some troubleshooting steps may be beneficial in locating the source of the issue and a potential resolution.

1. Ensure the Hoover washing machine is firmly connected to a grounded power supply if the machine is not working. Reset the circuit breaker if necessary.

2 Turn the main power switch to "On" and open and close the washer door firmly if the electrical outlet has power but the washer is not functioning. The washer will not operate if not turned on or if the door is open.

3 Verify the water inlet hoses are connected firmly and are turned on if there is no water flowing to the washing machine. Straighten out any kinks in the hoses and remove possible obstructions from the inlet screen.

4 Straighten the drain hose if the water is not draining from the unit. Remove any possible blockages from the drain hose. Tighten the hose if necessary.

5 Avoid selecting a "No Spin" option if the washer is not spinning water out of the drum. Choose a new spin cycle and press "Start" to remove water from the drum.

6 Verify that all four feet are touching the ground evenly if the washing machine is rocking or vibrating during use. Adjust as needed.

Thanks.

I have a Hoover washing machine, its a front loader, I don't have the exact model in front me at the moment. I recently moved house, and yesterday after re-plumbing my washing machine, I put the washing...


If water remains in the drum after the drain cycle, the unit will not go into the spin cycle. There may be a couple of reasons for your problem.
Make sure the drain hose is raised above the machine hose outlet to create a siphon effect. The drain hose needs to have a loop in it to work correctly. You can tie a string around the hose and hook it on the water valve creating a loop in the hose. Raise the loop of the drain hose so the top of the loop height is at the center of the washer drum.

My hoover washing machine wont spin. I have tested the motor and this is fine. What else could it be?


If you have checked condition of carbon brushes in motor and they are ok.Check the valve at the back of drum(turn of and disconnect power supply) this valve is situ at the bottom of rear of drum. it may look like a small plastic bottle with a rubber pipe that goes up to the top of machine. undo clip and pull it out carefully, use a pipe cleaner to clean out inside of drum and wash and rinse out valve. Replace in order of dismantling. only a small job. One tip if you can is to tip machine backwards draining out any water and gunge from back of drum after cleaning out. Good luck, and let me know how you get on.

Kenmore HE2plus wont spin...F-21 error


Apparantly the F21 error means there is a drain problem...I removed the drain hose from the output in the wall and held it down at ground level and let it drain into a pot...I ran the rinse, drain and spin cycle while I did this but before I hit the start button I hit the 2nd rinse button to turn off the rinse portion of the cycle. It seems to be draining fine now.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
