SOURCE: spinning fast and furious, just doesn't wring clothes dry

It sounds like you need a water pump!
See if it's pumping water next time you do load by looking at the discharge hose going to the drainage pipe and get back to me!

Check load distribution, spring and struts first.

If it is nothing in there , then it is usually a drum bearing or drum bearing spider problem.

Kenmore 110.66902690 electric dryer does not dry completely


Dear Barry,
Try 2 things.
One, be certain the clothes are very dry coming out of the washing machine.
If the washer leaves the clothes wet ( like the belt might be slipping), it can take the dryer forever to finish drying the clothes.
You can tell by hand-wringing them.
You should not be able to get any water out of them by hand-wringing after they have spun dry in the washer.
Two, try running a load with the vent hose unhooked off the back of the dryer.
If this fixes the problem, you are having a "clogged vent" issue somehow.
Be blessed.

Please help! My samsung 7kg J845 front loader keeps flashing UE on the error code (spin cycle) and I can't open the door. Sarah


Hi, I have the same washing machine and it flashes UE on the error code during spin cycle when I have one thing in there, or if the clothes are uneven. I usually have to wait until the lock light goes out, re-arrange the clothes and continue spin cycle. If it is just one item in there, I usually have to manually wring it out as it will keep saying error if I keep trying to spin.

Washer will not completely spin dry . clothes left lying in water. We have checked the water supply hose screen and it is not plugged.


Your door lock switch (not the one that turns your "door locked" light on) which allows your spin cycle to engage is probably not engaging properly. This is usually caused by the failure of the motor which locks the front washer door, and not this switch. As you know, that door is difficult to open even when it is unlocked so there is really no need for it to be locked.
Therefore, instead of spending a pile of money tryng to resolve this problem, make sure it does not happen again by tricking the machine into thinking the door is locked.
To do this first remove the front washer panel. Then remove the front screws which lock down the top cover. This gives you access to this switch. Fold up a piece of stiff paper and jam it in next to this switch so that it alwatys gives a "door is locked" signal to the machine control board.
Your machine should now operate and spin properly.
Of course the washer door will always be unlocked while the washer is operating but my door has never flopped open after making this repair. It certainly beats paying $200 for a replacement control board, and even more if something is also wrong with the locking motor. Remember that any replacement board will be just as junky and defective as the original board was.
Always remember, when you get ready to buy a new washer, not to buy any front loaders, because they are all poorly designed and therefore, because of the cheap materials used overseas in making them, they all rapidly become mechanically defective.
Good luck.

Doesn't your unit have a lock light in addition to an on light? On mine when you start the machine a red light comes on, then after a minute or two the lock light above it comes on. Once the lock light lights, the machine shouldn't stop. If only the initial light comes on, the door isn't locking. As a result, as the drum moves the clothes and they push against the unlocked door, it turns the machine off. You might need to check/tighten the door latch. Also check the door wax motor/door lock assembly.
