F & P washing Machine- top loader failing to spin

My F&P machine decides to fail every now and again as it moves into the final spin stage. It basically freezes and beeps. It sounds as though it is trying to spin (makes a whirring sound) but is simply not moving. It can sometimes have water in the tub when this occurs. It can normally be fixed by restarting (although this can take 3 restarts at times) but not this time;(

Tip the machine back and follow the hose from the pump to the diverter valve, it will have 3 hoses and 2 wires going to it. remove the diverter valve and remove any foreign objects from it, also remove the pump and check the hose between the pump and diverter, sometimes a button or etc can get in there and cause an intermittent problem. hope this helps, p.s. no tools required.

My Samsung SWT5V9W top loader spins when you turn the power button on. It still spins during the cycle and 'fights' itself to agitate. Would this be a computer issue?


This can be related to a mechanical issue, Check for free movement of the drum and shaft. check the mountings of the motor,check the suspension and finally the level of the machine, use a rubber mat if the machine moves around.

Washing machine shake &makes noise on spin,water doesn't drain completely out.Cothing are still wet


Don't know what type of washing machine you have since you did not provide a model number. But if it is a front loader, and it makes a loud noise when spinning, the problem could be that the support arms have failed. It would cause the machine not to be able to spin properly. To confirm the problem, unload the washer. Spin the wash drum by hand, and notice if the drum sags or wobbles when it spins. If it does not turn smoothly, then chances are the spider arms are broken. It is big job and expensive to fix. Get a few estimates before deciding whether it worth fixing.

My machine is not spinning when spin is selected


HI. if this is a belt driven top-loader, or front-loader, more than likely, the belt has slipped off the drive pulley, or the belt has failed. Now, if this is a top loader, with a direct drive assembly. the motor coupler will be the culprit in this case.

Will not drain and spin


A failed lid switch is likely your problem. It's a repair you could make yourself. It would be an inexpensive repair should you decide to call in a professional.

OLDE WASHING MACHINE LEAKING AFTER FINAL SPIN BUT NOT ALL THE TIME


Not too familiar with top loaders. With front loaders good pressure is required to keep the inlet valve closed, when not in operation. If the pressure is not there water leaks even when the machine is off. The problem cld be with the pressure from your faucet or your inlet valve; mysterious why it happens after the final spin, & your second machine.... I can't be of much help here. You hv to surf......
