Washer will not spin

HELP!!!! My washer will not spin. the problem started when the water inlet valve went out & I did not replace it right away. I have been turning the water off manualy. Well a few times I didn't get it off in time and dumped water every where. Every time that I did this the washer would not spin for a few days. I dumped water for the last time on Wednesday of last week. I replace the water inlet valve today, but the washer will not spin and it has been a week since I last dumped water. Where do I go from here?

    Yes it washes fine. the agitater moves fine, I've checked the belt, When the spin cycle is on it sounds like it is spinning, it even vibrates, but the tube does not move.

    I have a performa (I was told when purchaed maytag) PAVT910AWW washer that sounds like it is going through the spin cyle, but the tub does not spin. I checked belts and they appear to be okay. It goes through the wash and pump out water cycles. The machine is about 13 months since I purchased.

    washer fills, and drains but will not agitate. any suggestions?

  • Anonymous Jan 05, 2008

    Same problem, the washer agitates but does not spin fast with a load in. The belt is fine and the pulley turns at a good speed but looking inside the machine with the lid switch pushed down with a pen it does not spin very fast. I can hold it and it stops spinning all to gather. Even when i hold the barrel the pulley under the machine (under the barrel) is spinning fast. ?????

    The upper sprayer arm does not spin. There is water running through it, but probably not enough. The sprayer nozzle that makes it spin, is open, so that is not the problem. Last time this problem occurred, a field technician replaced some part(s) of the water pipe to that sprayer arm. The problem (loss of water pressure) seemed to be located in the base of that water pipe. Also, I think he installed some sort of engineering change on the base where this water pipe starts. It is a stainless steel spring clip; I took it away, but don't know where it sat and how to put it back.
    Is this a common problem for this dishwasher model?

The spin pulley is made by plastic. It worn overtime becoming shorter then original shape. When the thickness of pulley is short, it won't be able to engage the clutch inside the transmission to make the drum spin. The spin pulley is not expensive. I read an article about a gentlement replacing a transmission, the brake assembly plus the new belt could not make it spin. I carefully examined the whole thing by turning the belt in the direction of spinning and saw the transmission slipped. That was why I figured out. Transmission has 2 ways of turning: one is for agitation, and the other is for spinning. The pulley has to turn inorder to compress the brake assembly to free from friction and at the same time to engage the clutch so the drum will spin.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. 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.

When the load is finished my washer turns off the light stays on and I can't start it up again or turn the light off until I unplug it and turn it back on. If i don't use it right away it sto


You can do this provided you understand the operation.Possible fault in the control panel or a error due to non overhauling. Now it is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Check this link to replace the inlet valve:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1408/how-to-replace-the-inlet-valve-on-a-washer-dr.html

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Water flows constantly during the spin cycle


Servicing Water Inlet ValvesIf the washer won't fill or fills very slowly, if it overfills, or if the water is the wrong temperature, the water inlet valves could be faulty. These components are easy to locate and very easy to replace, at little cost. When you suspect an inlet valve is faulty, first check to make sure the water faucets are fully turned on and properly connected to the hot and cold inlets of the valves. Then check the screens in the valves; if they're clogged, clean or replace them. If water doesn't enter the tub, set the temperature control to the HOT setting. If there is no water, set the control to the WARM setting. If all that comes out is cold water, the hot-water inlet valve is faulty. Reverse the procedure to test the cold-water valve, setting the control first on COLD and then on WARM. If the tub overfills, unplug the washer. If water still flows into the tub, the valve is stuck open. In any of these cases, the valves should probably be replaced.

I bought a new washer and just hooked it up to the old water hoses that had been working fine. When i went to turn on the washer it sounded like it would fill but no water every came in.


First you should always replace both flexible hoses .. and replace them every five years.

A few things to check right away.

DId you try all temps? There is a 50/50 chance you have mated the cold hose to the hot inlet and the hot hose to the cold inlet on the washing machine mixing valve. Most machines have a blue and red ring denoting which is which.

Some machines have plugs set inside the inlet valve to prevent debris from getting in until installation.. obviously if these were not removed first no water would make it into the tub.

Turn the water off..dissconnect the hoses.. (have a towel or bucket nearby).. inspect the water inlets for those shipping plugs.

Run some water into the bucket to determine which hose is hot.. and reconnect to the proper inlet (Red for hot and Blue for cold) and try again

Again..If you have not replaced those hoses in the past five years.. get some new ones!

Best of luck!

Tub completed cycle and wouldn't shut off the water


Is your machine a FAV6800A or FAV9800A? Can you confirm the Model Number and the first two digits Serial Number?

Does water flow into the machine with the 120VAC power plug pulled from the machine?

If it does you have a stuck water valve. If it doesn’t you could have a stuck pressure switch and I can walk you thru how to check in diag mode for that condition.

I know you are frustrated but with some basic troubleshooting we can determine if the issue is a stuck open Water Inlet Valve or a defective Pressure Switch. Because this board doesn’t ask for the Model Number or Serial Number we need to start there.

Here is where the Model and Serial number info is located on the back of your machine.

I just did a load of wash and when I went to start another load the washer machine didn't work, ie. the water would not come into the tub, but when I stopped it and turned it to spin it would spin, just no...


You need to check the water inlet valve. Remove the supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clean and clear. If that is alright, then check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid. I am attaching a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

No water going in


Hello mariel_black,

If you have good water pressure at the washer source valves I would shut both the Hot and Cold water source supply valves off then remove the water inlet hoses at the back of the washer and inspect the water inlet screens for sediment blockage.
The washer inlet screens look like this;

cdb49e0.jpg

If the above items check OK reconnect washer supply hoses and turn on water supply valves. If we are talking about a FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW washer then I would go into Service Mode Board Output Test page 16 of the Service Manual and turn on the Hot and Cold water valves and see if the machine water inlet solenoids operate and release water into the wash tub. I will summarize how to get into Service Mode and perform the check of the Hot/Cold washer inlet solenoids.

Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Press the Delicates key the display will read something like “ot” the lid will lock. Now press Spin Only key this will turn on the cold water valve, do you here water flow into the washer? Press the Spin Only key to shut the cold water valve off.

Now press Normal key, do you here water flow into the washer? Press the Normal key to shut the valve off or the off key to get out of Service Mode. If you don’t hear either Hot/Cold water inlet valve operate then you have a bad solenoid or loss of 120VAC applied to that solenoid valve and more troubleshooting may need to take place and possible replacement of the washer water inlet valve assembly. Post back if you have questions.

Won't spin out clothes after replacing belt


The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component 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. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.
