I unclogged the pump, it was really easy, and it fixed my problem (I have no mechanical know how)! let me explain how I did it!  I have the Frigidaire Front loader for two years, it was acting funny, wouldn't spin, wouldn't drain. My solution was quick and simple, per a solution already mentioned on this site.  In short, The rubber drain was clogged.  There were two cotton breast pads, that must have been in there for months.  Recently my washing machine would not drain, and therefore wouldn't even think about spinning fast.  To unclog, first take off the front bottom panel.  (There are two tight screws on the front bottom, next to the floor, I had to use a powerdrill to remove them, and tilt the machine against the wall to get to them).  Next, there was a black rubber accordian on the front right, where the water drains.  (remeber to unplug your washing machine, to avoid any shock or such!)  I simply unscrewed the big metal ring, (I think it's called a gasket). After unscrewing the metal ring, I could easily pull the rubber accordian down 2 inches, stick my hand in it, and pull out debris.  I pulled out debris for about 5 minutes, and was so excited because I knew my washer would work great again.  I simply put the rubber accordian part back on the lip, screwed the ring piece pretty tight. I used a towel to absorb a small amount of water, that got inside the washing machine.  Now, it is spinning a million miles per hour again.  I will put the rectangular bottom front panel back on in a few days, I just want to double check, there is no leak, which there is no reason to suspect, as removing and putting the metal ring back on was easy!.

Will not spin


The final cycle of any washing machine, including Whirlpool units, is the spin cycle. During this cycle, water is sucked out of the load, preparing the clothes for the dryer. If your spin cycle isn't working properly, your clothes will be extremely wet, which increases the length of the drying process. Troubleshoot, and repair this problem yourself to save money

My frigidaire washer FTF2140ES0 won't spin on the spin cycle


Hi there, the same thing is happening with our washer. Did you find a solution to the problem? We found a coin the the black tube, but it still doesn't do the final spin. I can hear the motor trying to do something, but it just won't do the final spin. If anyone has any idea or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, I have a load of slopping wet laundry to deal with. :(

Cold water pours in during final spin


No - the timer is the likely suspect.

Cold water pours in during final spin


There is something clogging your pump, dismantle it to clear it. Plug off the wall socket mains first.

Whirlpool top Loading washing machine won't spin on spin cycle


If the washer won't finish a spin cycle, it probably means that your timer went bad or stalled. You can take the control panel off and look at the contacts for scorching or corrosion.

Maytag washer bangs during spin cycle


chances are you had a blockage in the pump and it tried to spin with the water still in the drum. check the bottom hose and filter for blockages so it does not occur again.

Washer will not Spin during SPIN CYCLES


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. (consult your manual to know where/how filter is cleaned). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
