Reach inside the drum and grab ahold of one of the fins. Turn the drum. If there it spins easily, you have a broken belt, or the belt fell off.

I have an LG-WD-1433RD . My dryer wont spin dry what would be the problem

Most basically it can be 2 things assuming it powers on and the touch controls act normally.

1. The belt that drives the tumbler around is broken and therefore it isn't spinning.

2. The motor that spins the tumbler is blown out and needs to be replaced. Again, no spinning.

In either case they are an easy fix and most any good dryer repair tech can fix it quickly. I've done this type of repair myself, but you have to be handy AND careful because if the exposed sheet metal edges. I always wore gloves and a long sleeve shirt.

Good luck. Having your dryer out stinks!

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate or ask a follow-up question.

Maytag bravo washer model number MTW6700tQ0 wont finish spinning please help!!

Hello c bellone,
If you rotate the clutch pulley by hand CW the tumblers should rotate in the wash basket.If you rotate the clutch pulley CCW the tumblers will rotate until the clutch spring comes under tension then the wash basket will begin to turn CCW and the tumblers will stop rotating because the transmission rotates with the wash basket. Do you have this action?
The clutch has been an issue for many are you taking dc or UC errors to the display?This clutch incorporates a Drawn Cup Roller clutch bearing (one way clutch bearing) designed to rotate freely CW and lock up CCW to rotate the spinner shaft in spin cycle rotating the wash basket/transmission CCW.You are halfway thru the clutch removal process, I would drop the clutch out and inspect the roller clutches, clean them up with WD-40 and some light bearing grease.If they are rusted up beyond clean up and or the clutch spring is broken as in this post you will have to replace the clutch.You will know what you are up against once the clutch is out and opened up for inspection.
Here is the process I use for clutch removal;
Access and remove the Clutch for maintenance
Disconnect 120VAC power cord.

Do the disks inside the washer come off for cleaning???

The Service manual has the procedure starting on page 37 for the tumbler removal.
It’s not difficult to remove the manual doesn’t call out the Torx driver size required for tumbler removal. You will need a number 20 Torx driver to remove the screw for tumbler removal.

During the spin cycle, the agitator makes a knocking/clicking sounds. Works good other then that.

If your machine type is a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW the tumblers or agitator should no rotate in spin cycle maybe a 1/8 turn and no more at the start of spin cycle . If your machine is one of the above machine types maybe you have coins or something under the tumblers. You can remove the tumblers by removing the plastic tumbler caps and with a #20 torx driver. See page 37 for tumbler removal. If your machine type is not the above please disregard my post.

I have another thought but if you could confirm the machine model number that would be helpful. So many folks post non FAV6800AW machine types in this forum.
Thank you… Rich

Helllo bigkas,
No the disk should not turn per my working FAV6800AWW. I think you have a problem. If you put the machine in quick wash with no clothes in the wash basket and after the water fill cycle pause the washer. Then lift the top of the washer with the process below to observe the tumblers. I would think the tumbler that turns freely is not turning during the wash cycle.
To raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. Raise the top of the machine to observe the wash basket and tumbler action. (See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point) I have a pic attached for reference. I would think the tumbler that turns freely is not turning during the wash cycle if you have a transmission problem. Take a look at the Service Manual page 37 on starts with tumbler removal and proceeds down to the transmission removal.
Let me know what you find with the above test I’m an owner/DIY’er and have not heard of anyone with this problem to date.
Sears Parts Direct link for exploded view of the machine and part numbers. There site is down so I used another parts site for the P/N.
Transmission for the FAV6800A if it comes down to that as the fail part.
Whoa…. quick search on Ebay and I found this tranny …… clock is ticking.
Good luck, Rich.

Banging tumbler during spin cycle

Be certain that nothing got under the rubber skirt, pull it back and look /feel under it .
inside the tub are the large wiper arms solid and not come loose.
open the top access panel (3 screws in top rear )
and open the bottom access Panel (3 screws in bottom front)
Dissconnect power .
Look at the springs and arms that attach to the tub are they secure.
is the large stone concreate slabs secure.
move all these items and push at them all secure?
you can run it while open but the bottom has a switch on front right that has to be closed.
look watch listen.
