Hi, What make of machine is it? You will probably find that it is the main wash drum bearings that are noisey. This will slow the drum down so the water will not come out so effectively.Replace and away you go........

Spin light flashhes spin does not work


The Miele W864 model will flash a warning light and will refuse to spin when it considers its load to be unstable....What I mean is... if you put a blanket in it and the blanket is on one side of the drum, the computer decides that if the machine spins, the centre fugal force or whatever they call it, the weight of the thing inside, will make the machine move about dangerously and will therefore not spin... its a safety feature. My spelling is shocking... I will look at the manual. Which says the load is unstable... more or less... waterlogged garments, like blankets can do this.... I normally just fill it with towels, and wash twice or three times because I wont get a good wash when overloaded.xx

Machine makes awful noise during any movement, spins very slowly, not enough to spin out. Making an awful noise, like stripped gears and won't drain


There are three reasons for such awful noise during spinning. Either the drum or the bearing turning the drum. Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.

Thanks

Ariston front loading washing washing


Believe it or not.....its almost always the cloths ( heavy blankets) that one places inside.
TRY:: In the spin cycle if the load is unbalanced the TUB will rock and make that "loose drum out of alignment" noise. STOP the machine and open the door ( IF IT IS A TOP LOADER ) realign the cloths (heavy or more then one blanket) so that it is EVENLY spaced through out the tub.Start the machine again.If it does it again, stop the machine and REALIGN the cloths (blanket !!) again.
p.s. there is a simpler way of doing it but I don't want you to loose your hand in the process.

Washing machine making loud noise when agitating/spinning


The noise was indeed coming from the water pump. To clean the pump on this top-loader you have to unplug it, pop the top open, and remove the front face of the cabinet to expose the motor and pump. Slip off the two metal clips hugging the pump to the motor. Place a towel under the motor before detaching the hoses - there's a plastic drip pan between the pump and motor to guide the water away from the motor. Unclamp the two hoses from the pump by squeezing their spring-clamps with pliers and sliding them further down the hose. Pull the hoses off by lifting the pump off its axle and pulling it out while wiggling the hoses loose. I found a small sock jammed in the pump - it must have fallen to the outside of the basket but inside the drum during the last spin cycle, and went down the drain hose. Check the pump for damage and replace if necessary. For future troubleshooting, remember that a clogged pump causes squealing, diminished spin speed, and slow drainage.

Front loader not wringign out water


Details? Is the machine SPINNING? That would be the first thing to check for, make sure the spin cycle is working as that is what gets most of the water to wring out. Some times if you have heavy towels and blankets you may have to run the spin cycle twice, if your machine is getting older, I would check that out FIRST.

Spins very slow on rinse/drain and spin


Your filter &/or pump could be blocked. Remove bottom panel three screws, unscrew filter cap (have lots of towels cause it will drain), remove filter & clean out. Refit. If you have manual refer to it. Pl rate me if helped.
