Washer make sounds, like brake sliding during mid cycle


Could be that your washer is unbalanced internally causing the tub to be rubbing against something else internally. Also check that your fan belt has automatic tensioning when it spins the tub.

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission.

Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.
Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. 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.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

Lg wm2455h is not draining: i have taken out and cleaned pump filter and that did not correct the problem. I place the machine on the drain and spin cycle and i can hear the pump hum, but doesnt drain. ...


most likely you have a bad pump and it needs to be changed out or something is still stuck in the impellar,stick your finger into the pump and feel around the impellar,i've found under bra metal pieces stuck in there,elastics and string rapped around it and coins lodged in between the impellar and wall of the pump,if the pump is bad or something is stopping the impellar from spinning it will hum,power is going to the pump but the motor isn't spinning.

Wont spin


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

There are several reasons why a washing machine won't drain or spin. The cause could be something as easy as a clog or something difficult that will need a licensed repairman. Start with the simplest possible cause and work down to the more difficult causes.

Find some possible cause and how to solve the problem:

A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.

If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.

Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.

Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.

If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman. Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall.

Regards.

Frigidaire FEX831FS2 stack washer/dryer; it washes, but when it goes into spin cycle it does not spin and you can smell something "funny" burning up like a motor or something. This is what the...


well, The transmission hears turns 2 ways. One way to wash (which causing the agitator turn) and the other to spin. The motor also turns 2 way. If you say it washes fine and in spin cycle is where you get burning smell, maybe of many things: Bad transmission locking up motor causing the burning smell. Possible bad motor trying to start (bad start winding or capacitor). Maybe something simple as something getting stuck in between outer tub and inner basket. Something you can do to check the motor mechanically is disconnect the belt from the transmission pulley and put the time on spin cycle. If the motor shaft/pulley spins on start up then the next thing to look into is the transmission or something catching it from spinning. Check the inside of the washer, if the basket is the type with small holes, make sure there is nothing stuck in any of the whole. Iv seen small screws getting lodged in there and preventing the basket from spinning. You can start by doing simple checks like this to start narrowing down things. Open the front panel form the washer and see if you have access to the belt, if not then you have to tilt the unit to get under it. if you have money and dont want to bother dealing with the unit then replace it. But i like investigating things first. go with whirl pool if you replace it. let me know if what you find if you do make these checks.

Hello,
Well their are several possible things that can cause that;
The transmission pulley did not properly disengage the brakes so in the spin cycle the tub didnt turn to cause the belt to slip and smoke and burn
thier is something obstructing the tub from turning on the spin cycle so again the belt slipped and smoked
the tub bearing is locked up so once again the belt......

so it may worth a service call to determine what the cause is,surely a belt will be needed but need to know why the belt is burning

Washing machine GLWS1649ASO wont spin on spin cycle. motor and pulley turn, but belt doesn't move. Is it the belt?


no it will not be the belt more so it will be a bad transmission.or something stuck under the agitator i have seen drill bits and keys get stuck under the agitator and cause the transmission to stop
remover the agitator first and check it is there is nothing there the transmission needs to be replaced

Make noise during wash cycle, has no agitator action and no spin during spin cycle/drain cycle


Looks like the bearings may have failed. TURN OFF the POWER and try and rotate the agitator/tub by hand. If it is jammed you should investigate why. Possibly caused by bearing failure or something wound around spindle.

Take care and do not attempt to investigate the problem without first disconnecting from the mains!

Washing machine does not spin out all water


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
