Hi,

I just had a similar problem. The washer would just shut down prior to the high spin cycle. I had a service guy in and he had a diagnostics sheet. Did you get an error code? If you have the electronic. Turn the knob to the Drain/Spin mode and press both the "Options" and "Cancel" buttons simultaneously until all control panel lights are lit and flashing. Then turn the knob clockwise in click and the washer will then go into its diagnostics mode. With every click it should do something (i.e. fill, pump, drain, spin, etc..) continue turning 1-8 clicks. On the 9th click you should then get an error code. My code was E47, which I have already posted another possible solution. I could be either the door switch or the control panel. Remove the door switch by removing the wire around the rubber seal, then remove the 2 screws for the door switch and unplug the 3 plugs. Check the readings on the PTC (white plug on doorswitch). If the switch reads around 1500 ohms, then the problem is most likely the control panel.

To exit the diagnostics mode, the easiest way is to unplug the washer, wait 10 seconds, and then plug it back in.

The reading on my switch was 1398 ohms, which is close to 1500, so I ordered a new control panel. Hopefully, this will work.

The problem could be ,most likely is, the control knob timer,as it works ,depending on the age of the machine with a working timer like in a clock with moving wheels ,this has several notches that operate the the total control of the cycles and if one of those wheels is damaged it could not go onto the fast spin,very rarely is it the motor which has twin speeds,but could also be ,more likely timer

GE GFWN1100LWW. Can the high speed spin work on the lower wash cycles?


From my experience, the lower wash cycles are set to only do certain things. For example: the Delicate won't do a high speed spin, even though a high speed spin wouldn't really be destructive to delicates, but would force more water out of them! I usually just run a "Drain/Spin" after the Delicate cycle.

What will cause my Whirlpool washing machine to set on low speed spin cycle?


The machine uses automatic load sensors to balance the load and when you put something in the machine that is big, like a comforter, it knows that it cannot balance that item. So with a front loader it wont spin at high speed because it would be off balance and either damage the machine or the machine would "walk" because of the off balance motion.

Wfc7500vw spins but not at high speed on final spin


This is a common problem with the Whirlpool front load machine. The motor control board goes out but the new ones have been redesigned. You will need to replace the control board. Here is a link to the control board you need.

Frigidaire Tumble Action washer won't complete the final spin. leaves clothes soaking wet.


Had the same problem and fixed with ease. The problem is with the door lock. There is a secondary locking mechanism that kicks in for the final spin due to the high speed. When the secondary lock goes bad the washer will not do the final spin. The replacement part is under $40 @ AppliancePartsPros.com .

yes it could be normal if the balance control senses that the load is uneven however the same problem could be caused by a blocked filter or blocked sump hose.

Washing still wet - door won't open.


not a fault with washer. i guess you are plumbed into trap under sink. the spigot you fastened drain hose to is blanked off - there are various methods of doing this including have to saw off the end of the spigot with the bread knife. possible also a fault with pump or filter

Won't spin clothes dry... possibly bad wiring??


Casa, make sure your model number starts with 417.43042 otherwise this post is trash. First have your husband drop the bottom panel and check the drain pump for debris, coins, etc. This model will not go into high spin if the pressure switch detects there is water in the tub. There was also a service flash out on this model regarding the timer not advancing. This had to do with electrical noise generated by the opening and closing of the timer contacts. This sent corrupt signals to the motor controller and the washer would stall in cycle. They corrected this problem by adding 3 jumpers to the motor controller. Part 134306000. My feeling is that you have a pump drain issue, but it's hard to tell without being there....Catriver...post back.
