Viking washer problem is it just stopped spinning

Posted by on

  • Anonymous May 17, 2009

    I have an Eaton Viking 8 two speed, heavy duty cloths washer. It can no longer spin fast enough to remove water from the cloths. It spins slowly and there is a smell of burnt rubber.

    I imagine this means I need to change a drive belt. Any directions on how to do this?

It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

You need to drain it, A wet and dry vac works good for this. Then unhook it and unplug it and lay it down so that you can see the bottom. There is a motor there and you need to make sure that the wires that connect ot it are ok. If the machine has been run and it was off balance it might have broken the wire that makes the motor spin.

A dc error means that the clothing is not being distributed properly in the basket. This usually happens when the machine is lightly loaded. If the load seems o.k. then the problem is probably with the sensor at the side of the basket.

After spin cycle washer stops abrubtly causing it to shift.


You have dragging brake shoes. This will cause the motor to draw excessive current. Nedd to take apart and pull down spin tube to access the brake shoes
