Won't go through to spin and empty cycle

Fixed similar issue with the micro switch in the control board, would this be a likely fault for not progressing through the cycles. It will still sort of wash in the cycle, but the pump does not kick in

    Sorry I didn't bring it in, the washing machine is a Fisher and Paykel Smart Drive top loader 7.5kg and is roughly 7 years old. They made them pretty well all the same for several years I thought, operationg of an electronic control panel on top. Previous problems with it beeping on cycles was caused by a micro switch under the panel, however it is not beeping this time, rather not kicking into the cycle. Happened to a mate of mine and he gave his a big shake and it has worked ever since

    I fixed it myself. My wife had put in several floor mats which shed. The pump had become stuck from the fabric and on clearance the washing machine once again worked. It appears as an electrical fault but isn't

Does the unit fill? Possible it is this lid switch. The machine control board needs to know the lid is closed before going past the fill. A model number would be nice as there are quite a few of these over the years and I only work on them and do not know how old the unit is until I see a model number and then the unit. I have most manuals. But this site won't allow any links or uploads that I know of. Check that lid switch.......Eric Campion

My candy GOFS262 washing machine is filling the drum to the top with water on every cycle but doing nothing else after that, the clothes jst sit there in the water, I've left it to see if something...


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.

This is an error caused by the cycle advance which acts like a timer. The main control board can cause this issue. Diagnostic testing will need to be performed to determine the cause of this problem

This sounds like a classic clogged empty pump issue. The empty cycle is timed and then it steps on to the spin cycle. The machine won't spin if there is still water in the bottom of the drum. When you reset it to a spin cycle again, you are making it run through the empty cycle again, finally getting rid of the water that the clogged filter could not evacuate on the first attempt.

You need to clean the empty pump filter. Now... Where is the filter???? Hmmmm... not sure. It MAY be behind a little panel in the front of the machine near the bottom. I can't find a picture of the machine on the net so I'm not sure.

Clean the filter, I'll bet your problem goes away. You have to wonder why the idiot who sold the machine to you hasn't suggested this!

Wm2455hw will not spin


Make sure door mechanism is working at fine. So next is to check whether the motor tumbles both directions.
The spin bearing might be a problem, but normally you'd hear a problem here first. Have you heard any freight trains passing through the house in the spin cycle?
One thing to check for this problem is the spin speed switch. If the spin speed switch is bad then the control won't know how fast to spin, and so it will just not spin at all.
The drain pump must be draining all the water out. If the water doesn't drain out then the pressure switch won't read empty and that might prevent a spin cycle.
I hope this helps.
Please reply with additional details for further assistance.

Just a thought but you never tampered with the water level on the pressure switch did you? This would give off similar faults. It could be the pressure switch itself or the chamber is partially blocked it could be a broken or loose tacho wire on the motor. Or it could be a fault on the main control board.

Won´t spin at all in any cycle


Goto http://www.frigidaire.com/manuals and download the model wiring diagram. It will explain how to view and interpret additional error codes. I have the exact same issue with my machine (will not spin). The error code #E47 indicates that the machine thinks the door is open and will not engage spin. Fixes: new door switch ($85) or new control board ($285).

Not spinning out, all icons flash, so therefore door remains lock


This is a major control fault within the chip set on the main control board. replacing this damaged control will fix this issue you are having at this time.

90 Series Kenmore Washer Not going to spin cycle not draining water


I've had the same problem...you can purchase a replacement lid switch at your local appliance parts store for about $35. Fortunatly, the sales person at the appliance store had diagrams and provided instructions to replace the switch. I was able to finish the job and fix the switch in less than 1 hour. Good Luck.

Wash.machine won't spin


Door lock switch # 131763245 if everything else is working fine this should fix the problem. It shorts out between the motor control board and the door lock from emptying the cycle and spinning. Try running your machine on drain/spin and see if it drains and tosses clothes and then stops with no spin. If that happens then it is your door lock.switch. Easy to replace by yourself and costs $65.00
