It sounds like you have a bad clutch in the washer. To diagnose this failure, you would need to pull off the washer cabinet and pull the transmission. It is likely that you would find the clutch band glazed over. It is probably not exerting enough torque to release the brake and spin the washer.

If you find this problem, you can try sanding the band to rough it up. Reassemble the washer and check for proper spin. If this fixes the problem, you will need to order and replace the clutch band.

This type of procedure is usually performed by a service technician. I don't recommend attempting this repair unless you are completely confident that you can safely perform the work.


Also check the motor drive coupler.

I have a Hoover top load 610 and it wont start wash cycle


These are a great little machine,I dont know why they have to go changing things.Anyway this sounds to me like the timer.It fills & the water cuts off so the inlet valve is ok.It drains so the pump is ok.It spins so the motor should be ok.Try it on other cycles like gentle or delicate & see if it agitates.I'm sure it will be the Timer.

Washer wont spin....it agitates and drains but wont spin when it gets to the spin cycle. timer still moves.


Tough to say without doing some testing. First thing to check is the coupling. It may sound like its agitating and may not at all. IF it really does agitate and won't spin, I would start diagnostically testing the timer. That isn't something your average homeowner can do though.

Hello, it sounds like 1 of 2 things. 1 you have a bad motor or 2. you might have something caught in the pump. So if you want to and if you can remove the pump and see if the motor spins. If it spins then there is something in the pump. Thank you

Wont spin


Terri, if it was the lid switch, you wouln't be able to drain. If it were the coupler, it wouldn't agitate. Sounds almost like you have something in between the basket and tub, or a nail or something in one of the basket holes stopping the spin. You will need to remove the cabinet and remove the top tub ring to check these things out. I will attach a couple of photos for you to see if this will help you out. If you have nothing holding the basket up then more than likley it's your basket drive which is a pretty hard job...Catriver..post back
