SOURCE: Washer stopped mid cycle

.I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man
who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you go to where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on both washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

What is the error code E2 for Magic Chef 2.1 cu. ft. Top Load Portable Washer?

I put this answer in the comments but re-posting here because I didn't know what I was doing : )
The Magic Chef 2.1 cu ft Portable washer manual says that its a door malfunction and the solution is to open and close the door. That did not work for me so if you're having the same issue that I am it may be that your washer is not level. I had placed mine on top of a few folded throw rugs to stifle noise (I live in an apt, on the second floor) and the rugs were uneven. As soon as i adjusted them, the washer began to work again. I hope this helps.

The drum on my washing machine is off center after spinning violently with an out-of-balance load. This machine is more than 10 years old. Is it cheaper to repair it or replace it?

would recommend repair as this is probably an easy fix. if it is a top load model then there will be some springs that stabilize the unit at the base . You will have to remove the cabinet from the washer to access and inspect the parts. look for something out of place.

Laod with bath towels won't spin out

hi, you may find that the towels when wet are to heavy for the belt to grip the drum if it spins with normal clothes in you need to reduce the load when you wash your towels, hope this helps.
