If the m/c is washing but not spinning, then u need to check the filter.
It is located behind the lower rear panel of m/c.
Remove panel and remove large black hose on the bottom of drum, there u will see the filter, remove and clean.
Refit and make sure the hose is on properly.Test.
If u have no drum action on wash or spin then u need to check the motor carbons, this can be done whilst u have the rear panel off.
If carbs o/k but still no motor action, then u prob have control board prob.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Washing machine is taking in water then clicking as if going to start wash but wash programme not coming on. Same with spin


check your lid switch. if lid switch is faulty, it would allow the unit to fill with water, but won't allow it to agitate or spin.

Oko 72630. Why is it stuck on rinse cycle?


Could be several reasons:
- Selected the "Night cycle" program (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: too much noise in the spin cycle)
- Set to the "Rinse hold" (means standing with the drum full of water, reason: wrinkles on the clothes)

According to your description I think that this is not a failure otherwise error E20 will be appears on display.

Once the washing programme has come to an end, END illuminates on the programme progress display.
If RINSE HOLD was selected, the display beside the START/ PAUSE button flashes.
1. After a rinse hold, the water must first be pumped out:
- Either press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun according to the completed programme;
After the START/PAUSE button is pressed again, the spin speed can still also be changed during spinning), or
- Turn the programme selector to PUMP OUT and press the START/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out without spinning),or
- Turn the programme selector to SPIN or SHORT SPIN and press theSTART/PAUSE button (the water is pumped out and the washing is spun or gently spun).
At the end of this programme step, the END indicator will illuminate.
2. Open the door.
As soon as the DOOR indicator lights up green, the door can be opened.

Hotpoint ultima washing machine wma74 drum not turning


If the machine wasn't excessively noisy before and when you select spin only you can't hear the motor running its likely to be the carbon brushes in the motor worn down till they no longer contact stick a new set in if the carbon length sticking out the brass holder is less than around half an inch long

Noise from machine


1.check if the bra wire is poking out of one of the drums.Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.

2.clear the water pump from obstractions like coins or small objects there might be some coins stuck in it that are causing discomfort.

if all the above fails try to run the motor alone without the belt if you still hear the noise its the motor that has a problem

Haier HWc1460tve wont enter spin mode, water pump etc ok, drum turns but wont go faster than distribute speed for whole of spin programme


check the sensor that normally is attached to the motor. If it has come loose, speed becomes erattic .If good, suggest brush check as well.

Machine makes awful noise during any movement, spins very slowly, not enough to spin out. Making an awful noise, like stripped gears and won't drain


There are three reasons for such awful noise during spinning. Either the drum or the bearing turning the drum. Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.

DRUM NOT SPINNING


Disconnect your washer's plug for 5 minutes or more from the wall socket. Plug in. Press "end of cycle" button for over 5 seconds, the child lock comes off.
Press it again and the child lock comes on................ If this does not work, try the pre-wash button likewise.
