The most common cause of this problem is the washer transmission, there ar lid switch issues but the fact u say it spins ok rules that out, a new transmission is a fairly expensive fix, so if the washer is high hours of use u many consider replacing it.

There is a "drain solenoid" which is on the line that allows the water to pump out. It has likely failed. Until it indicates the tub is empty, it will prevent the machine from spinning. If you lift it up and look underneath, you will see this device attached on one side to the drain hose and on the other to the tub. Use a pair of pliers to open the wire clamp on the tub side (all the water will drain out!!!!!), and if (when it is empty) it will spin, the solenoid is bad....if it still will not spin, the controller is bad & you need a new machine!

If it is the solenoid, take it to Sears & they will sell you a new one.

The motor is already faulty. Initially you can check short circuit wiring or burned parts inside the circuit of the unit.

I started my washer and I worked just fine then it went into an extra rinse cycle and now it won't drain or spin the door switch works I can hear it click and then a low humming sound


Turn power off, then set the machine to a spin cycle, you may need to do this several times before the door will open. Hope this helps

Humming could mean a stalled motor. These machines also have a coupling between motor and gearbox which can fail. However, the pump is attached to the motor, so if it's not pumping it probably means the motor isn't spinning. Check motor and/or gearbox.....Nomess

Type 111 filled with water and stopped


with the machine off, turn the cycle dial around 3x very harshly, then try it again. If it works normally now, you'll need a new cycle switch soon!

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Washer stops at rinse cycle-hums and has a smell.


Problem is with your lid switch which has to be replaced. This is if your filter is all clean.

Asko w6221 front load washer stops after wash cycle


Do all of your cycles work when you turn them manually? If one cycle does not work when you turn the dial on it then it will be your timer (The dial assembly $100-up) If all your cycles work manually, then it could be your timer motor which is attached to your timer assembly. If you turn the dial pass the wash, on to the rinse, does the dial automaticly move (when finishng the rinse cycle)to the spin cycle? If so then your timer motor is ok. The only wires close to the bottom are the motor, but these should be high enough out of the way.
