SOURCE: Washer does not spin when filled with water. Makes loud noise

It doesn't spin If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.


  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


  • The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.


  • A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)


  • The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.


  • The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.


  • The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.


  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.


It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.

SOURCE: water in washing machine from emptying sink.

A washing machine filling with water overnight or when not in use has two possible causes. Either the water is running into the washing machine from the sink ( If the drain hose is connected directly to the u-bend under the sink ) or one of the water valves isn't shutting off properly and water is dripping slowly but surely into the washing machine. The latter problem can take several hours before the water level rises high enough inside the washing machine to be visible.
It's easy to track down the cause of water entering the washing machine when not in use. If turning off the hot and cold water taps stops it, then it's one of the water valves not shutting off properly, and needs replacing. It's just a process of elimination to find out which one it is. If not, the water is likely to be coming from the sink (use above link). Sometimes by removing the soap dispenser drawer and carefully observing inside the soap dispenser you can clearly see water dripping in at regular intervals.
Blocked water valve filters: I've come across cases where a filter in the water valve has become caked in a brown sludgy mud-like substance due to disturbances in the plumbing. This could be because of work carried out on internal plumbing or even after workmen have turned the water off in the street to work on the water mains. After the water is turned back on, muddy or gritty water can enter the household pipework and when you use the washing machine it can draw this contaminated water into it.
In this scenario very fine grit or muck can get past the filter and stop it shutting off properly, or the filter is so blocked that water pressure to the valve is reduced enough to prevent the valve shutting off properly. Remove the water valve filter with some pliers and thoroughly clean it out. If the fault persists, replace the valve.
Important things to watch out for are -

  1. Washing machine water valves need a certain amount of water pressure to actually ensure the water is shut off properly. Therefore, if your water pressure is very low, it can seep in past the closed valve. This problem is less likely to suddenly appear unless your water pressure has suddenly dropped. It's more likely to be a problem with a new installation. ( Related: Low water pressure and washing machines )
  2. A faulty tap can mean that although you turn it off, the water supply isn't actually cut, so be careful of assuming if the fault still occurs, that you have definitely discounted the water valves. If unsure, you would have to disconnect the hot and cold fill hoses to ensure the water supply is properly cut when the taps are turned off. This problem is a lot more common with water taps that turn off with a red or blue plastic lever.
  3. If the washing machine has just been filling, you may get some dripping of water into the soap dispenser for a few minutes after. Don't mistake this for a valve not shutting off properly.
  4. If the water ever gets turned off while work is carried out on the water mains in the street or for major plumbing in your home, run lots of water in the house through taps at the sinks until it runs clear after the water is turned back on.
Faulty water valves should be replaced or there is risk of flooding.

My 12 year old AEG OKO LAVAMAT is making a grinding sound when it fills. It's fine at all other times. I've tried cleaning out the filter, and running it empty.


This is usually caused by the recycling pump running empty whilst the washing is still soaking up the initial fill water. as the water begins to soak the clothes it then starts to pass through the drum into the pump and the whole thing quietens down. running empty will not work. to test this theory try opening the drawer very slightly and filling it manually with a hose before starting the machine, (ONLY TO THE NORMAL LEVEL) and see if the noise is still as bad.

this may sound silly but check the waste outlet pump electrically, some models are wired up so if the pump fails the water will not enter the machine, this works on the theory that if it fills up it can not empty also check the solenoids for open circuit electrically, double check the water supply to the machine, it may have been fine but you could have kinked the pipe placing the machine back where it should go?
