Question about Washing Machines

Won't spin heavy loads

My washer is only six months old...the problem is there are no service companies in my area (suburb of seattle!!) who will come fix it. samsung refunded my money after much hassle, but i still have a non-spinning washer. it gets to 10 or 11 minutes and sits there swishing back and forth. there is no error message, just the timer showing. help! Samsung Silvercare Wf306LAW waiting on repairman.

It appears your main control board has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

H2low whirlpool top load washer turns on, fills with water for a second and stops...keeps making a sound on the sensing mode but does not get to wash mode to continue washing.


if the washer is only one month old contact whirlpool and they will give you a service company in your area to contact and it the repair will be free of charge as long as the problem is with the washer and not something that you are doing wrong or something wrong with the way that it is installed, the unit is under mfg. warrnty for one year from date of purchase.
things to check before calling would be, water connections correct? hot to hot cold to cold. are both the hot and cold water turned on?
kinked lines?
i would call a whirlpool certified repair company, they will send a guy out and if its broken they will fix it for free.

The spinning thing won't spin all of a sudden. The washer is making a lot of noise and will drain but won't spin. How do you take the back off?


The motor has a double pole on it. The pump is driven on one side of the motor. The basket is driven on the other end of the motor. So if the water is pumped out then the lid switch is fine. What you have is a broken drive coupler. Usually breaks on a heavy load like rugs or quilts. Low water on a heavy load can break it too. Or simply old age.

Have a 6 mounth old top loader washer GE and the spin will not work


A six month old washer should be under warranty. Did you register the product and do you have your receipt? I would call the place where you purchased it first and see what they have to say.

The washing machine model # RTW4340SQ0 makes a humming noise


Roper is a division of Whirlpool and your machine is still under warranty if only a few months old. You should be able to find a factory authorized service company in your area.
