1) Be sure the load of clothes is not lop-sided. If the tub becomes unbalanced, it may spin erratically or not at all. Sometimes you can just open the lid and reposition the clothes. This automatically resets an off-balance shut-off switch. Just close the lid and retry.





2) Check the lid switch and the tab on the lid that strikes it. If the plastic tab is broken, the washer may halt during the spin cycle. If the switch doesn’t click when you press and release it, it’s probably broken. If you’re experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repairperson.
3) The belt may be loose, worn, or broken. If you’re fairly handy, tighten or replace the belt; otherwise call an appliance repairperson.

4) There may be a problem with the controls; in this case, call an appliance repairperson.

please give me a good rating if solution works for u

We have an Ultima washing machine and creases the cloths very badly any suggestions please


The amount of creasing you will get is directly related to the speed you select for the final spin dry cycle and the spin after the first wash cycle which occurs prior to the rinse cycle. The higher the speed and the longer it goes for the more the clothes will crease.

Experiment with different spin speeds on your machine for clothing that is subject to the creasing problem. Also do not put too many items in the machine for a wash as many people do as this will contribute to creasing. Always under load your machine for every wash cycle.

Spin drying is a compromise between creasing and maximum water removal. If you want less creasing you will need to select a more gentle spin dry speed but you will also have the clothes coming out of the machine with a higher water content and they will take a bit longer to dry. The spin time on the program may also be shorter.

In my own machines I use a gentle wash and spin cycle for all clothing that I don't want heavily creased. Running it on a wash cycle with a high and longer spin speed when the machine is spinning the clothes after the initial wash, and then again after the final rinse, will thoroughly crease the clothes every time.

Also bear in mind that different fabrics that are suitable for machine washing will perform differently and some are just too subject to creasing even if you use the most gentle wash, rinse and spin cycle. Hence you can take 2 different 100% cotton fabrics out of a machine and hang them to dry and one will be almost crease free and the other will be thoroughly creased. With these fabrics that are just very subject to wash creasing, it is better to hand wash and rinse them. Then after rinsing drip dry them or put them in the machine and spin them for 1 -2 minutes maximum just to get some of the water out and hang dry them.

The spin dry of the above mentioned washing machine spin dry not working properly cuts off what parts are required to fix this ?.


If a machine is out of balance when spinning it will shut down---there's an unbalance switch that controls this---also on some machines if not properly set level or feet not touching the floor causing the machine to rock---it will shut down---the remedy for that is to redistribute the clothes then is should resume spinning----another issue could be the timer----out of sequence or jumping ahead during that cycle---has the timer/control ever been wet as this will cause some issues---this is my thoughts on this--good luck

Washer sometimes will not spin dry.


Hello , this is the first sign of your clutch going out , it is not engaging on the last spin cycle soon it will almost never spin. the clutch is tough to get to and is not much money. you would have to be willing to pull the gear case to replace the clutch. a repair company would charge around 150.00-200.00 dollars total. Here is a different look at your problem follow the link I added , it is part # 5 as a kit.

Washing machine that no longer can spin dry laundry


The washer has a reversable motor. One way it washes and everything is sweet. the other direction the water pumps out and the brake gets released allows the tub to slowly start spinning and eventually spin out the water from the clothes. So what can go wrong? The thrust washer will not release the tub and let it spin. A new kit comes with everything you need to replace it.Since you never said what brand you have I am oly guessing of course by the symtoms you have given.eee0328.jpg

Transmission or solenoid that should pick and put transmission into spin. I bet it's a kenmore or similar.

Some magic happened today!

I got the thing (wd-12331ad) to dry without having to run a wash first!

Also, I seemed to get it to do a spin only run...

The way to get it to dry :
-----------------------------------
(for a set time - I've not managed to get any of the auto-dry settings to work)
from machine being off:
> press the power button.
> press the "Dry" button 'til "Time" lights up
>>> press "Dry" again to get the desired duration
> press the spin button 'til the spin speed shows blank/ the RPM light goes out.
> press "Start/Pause"

It will then dry for the number of minutes specified!

Not perfect, I know but that's serious progress from where I was before; having to re-run a wash cycle to get it to dry anything...

Something to note:
- The machine worryingly sounds like it's starting to fill with water when you start the "Just Dry" program which scared me at first. BUT it stops after a second or so (I think it's just cleaning out the detergent tray so it doesn't bake any leftover powder)


For "spin only" from machine being off:
-------------------------------------------------------
> press the power button.
> press the spin button
>>> if you press "Start/Pause" now you get a 13 minute 1200 spin cycle
>>> press the spin button again and then "Start/Pause", it seems to drain itself for 1 minute
>>> pressing spin repeatedly, cycles through the spin speeds.


Things I don't know:
----------------------------
- I don't know if you can combine spin and heat.
- I don't know whether the auto-dry programs are available
- I don't know what other programs are available from the "Dry"/"Spin" buttons

...So if anyone does any experimenting, please let us know the results, you never know, we might end up with a half way useful set of instructions! I'm starting to think the machine's not half as bad as it seems when following the manual alone.

Hope that helps.
