SOURCE: very noisy on spin

hello there.....the noise you hear is most likley due to failed drum bearings or something trapped in the drum....test as follows....isolate machine....open the door...test the drum for up and down lift...there should be no movement at all....if all is well here...remove the lid and remove drive belt....spin the drum by hand and listen for any bearing noise (rumble). or metallic sound of something trapped in drum..if all is well here refit the lid temp...Then select spin and start machine...if motor is noisy then the problem is with the motor bearings

You need to open the top. Unplug the machine and find a stiff putty knife or something flat and thin. Where the top meets the front of the machine, about 2" in from both sides, you will find a spot where you can push inward and release the spring catches. Lift the top and everything will be accessable.

SOURCE: Suspect broken spring in lid,

If you have an old top loader, you can release the top lid by pushing a flat steel ...like a puttey knife into the space between the top and the front panels. On the far left front then the far right front while continuing an upward pressur on the top panel.
. The top will then come up.

Washer not draining or spinning


more than likely a blocked hose or water pump. No spin, try these:

Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.

Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.


Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)

Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.

On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

I have a magtag atlantis washing machine and I have a problem with the spin cycle, I have had to help it get into the spin cycle by pulling on the spin tub and closing the lid.The pump and agitator work.


Hello Bill,

Their are several possible things causing it to not spin;

1) a worn and streched belt

2) the spring that tensions the motor is hanging up or broken

3) the motor plate that the above mentions spring moves is hanging up

4) the thrust bearing on the motor pulley is worn and the pulley kit needs to be replaced

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ7533JQ1 washing machine. It agitates and drains but does not spin. I checked the motor coupling is not worn out nor broken. This is a two speed washing machine. ...


This is a neutral drain direct drive machine which drains the water first prior to spinning. After draining out the water completely, the motor pauses then restarts to spin the tub. It is possible that the problem is in the lid switch. If the motor is running during the spin cycle then the lid switch is good, otherwise it is indeed the problem.

The problem can be either in the brake particularly the cam driver or the clutch assembly. The clutch hub is attached to the spin pinion gear and as the spin pinion gear turns, the clutch hub also turns. The clutch lining is forced against the clutch hub by the clutch spring. As the clutch hub turns, friction between it and the clutch lining causes the clutch lining to turn. As the clutch turns, the tab that holds the clutch spring on the lining, contacts the brake cam driver, releasing the brake. The tab on the clutch lining remains in contact with the brake cam driver, holding the brake released and then providing power to the spin tube through the brake release.

The basket will not spin if the brake cam driver is broken because the brakes cannot be released. If the clutch spring is weak, the friction between the clutch hub and the clutch lining is not sufficient for the clutch tab to push the cam driver and release the brakes.

Check and replace, if necessary, the brake cam driver and the clutch assembly particularly the clutch spring and the clutch lining.

Gw708u spin cycle wont work


There are 3 common causes of this, 1: OOB (out of balance)switch is faulty - to get to this you must remove the display console cover and the main control module and it is underneath in (common microswitch, test with a multimeter) 2. Lid Reed Switch has failed (Bridge out red and black wires in 4 wire plug on right side of motor controller module to test- machine will spin when you select spin cycle when this is bridged if this is the issue) 3. Broken Balance spring (simple but common - left front corner of machine attached to neck ring on top of drum and to the suspension strut: you can bend the end of a broken spring to re-attach)

I hope you can make sense of these instructions. i am better at doing than telling

Wash cycle works fine, found a humming nose during the rinse cycle, tub will not drain or spin


Yep had this problem.. It's either the timer on the knob that is faulted or the switch on the lid. My problem was the swtich on the lid. But watch out unplug it first!

Open the lid while unplugged from any power and see if the lid switch is broken in any way. Usually there is just a spring inside that closes off the circuit. Sometimes on used ones .. people will by pass the lid switch so that it still runs with the lid open.

Washing machine won't spin or agitate


It doesn't spin If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.


  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


  • The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.


  • A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)


  • The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.


  • The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.


  • The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.


  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.


It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.
