You will need to remove the back of the unit and pull the boot off that goes from the tub to the pump and clear the filter.

SOURCE: Clothes wet, doesnt spin fast

Check the drain spigot, where the drain hose attaches to the drain trap under the sink/tub.There may be a blockage in the spigot which is causing the water to drain very slowly and therefor not allowing the machine to spin at normal fast speed.

Remove the front lower panel (3 screws on lower lip - lay on floor to see). Panel come right off. there is a round "dial" to the front housing. Put down a bath towel on the floor and unscrew dial - then pull it out.

SOURCE: The spin cycle spins very slowly and the clothes

Our front loading GE washer did the exact same thing. It took forever for a cycle to finish and the clothes would be sopping wet. The problem was a clogged up drain filter. There were coins and a couple bills and some odds and ends caught up in there that was preventing the water from draining out. The spin cycle can't get going full speed until some of the water has drained.

I'm not an "appliance expert", but I have checked and cleared the drain filter a few times on my machine. I'm not familiar with your exact washer. Here's how I did mine:
Take off the bottom panel by removing the small screws at the top of the panel. Look for the white, round, plastic piece toward the bottom, facing you. Put a basin underneath it to catch any water, then slowly unscrew the filter. (if your basin fills up too fast just screw the filter back in and dump the basin, then repeat). Once you have it off you'll be able to immediately see any debris in there. Put the filter back in and the panel back on.

Loud clanking noise during spin cycle. Will not


If it is a front loader, then remove the rear panel, remove the belt, and soin drum by hand, if it feels rough, or is noisy and rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed.
This is a major repair.

My kenmore front loader wont spin fast. it will spin when the clothes are washing slowly but wont spin fast to get rid of the water so clothes stay soaking wet.


Check your drain and make sure it isn't plugged. If ok then remove the bottom panel on the front of the machine. Under it is the washer pump. The pump is either clogged or bad. The washer will not go into a full spin when the water isn't draining properly.

Whirlpool Duet Front Loader won't get up to spin speed


Careful of overloading the front-loading washers. Too much of this will result in the bearings in the drum to go bad. When this happens, the rpms on the drum slow down due to belt slack. You can only see this with the back off of the unit and in the middle of the cycle. They do not sell replacement bearings...you'll have to buy the whole drum (bearings pressed inside) and for 1/2 the cost of a new washer. I hate front-loaders. I'll never buy one again.

What does the max extract feature do


If the washer is removing all of the water from the washer during the spin cycle it is likely working properly. Not an expert but I believe max extract causes the washer to spin for a slightly longer period of time in order to remove more water from the clothes. We use it regularly because our clothes come out to wet otherwise.

Strange growling sounds on rinse and spin cycle


I would check the motor control board located near the floor on the right side for burnt components. The motor is a 3 phase unit and if one of the phases are working the motor will growl and won't be able to supply the proper torque.

See www.neptunehelp.com for disassembly photos and for more info on the faulty door latch wax motor.

My old Hoover top loader Washer is noisy & doesn't spin out properly - how can I fix it?


Sounds like the switch which cuts the machine off when the load is unbalanced. My guess is that: This switch is being triggered too easily The springs holding the bowl up are either stretched or one is broken; The machine may not be level.
