Possible your outlet filter is blocked, find it and clean out. Look into yr users' manual

    The outlet filter on most machines is at the bottom right front corner. A small door which you can push; inside you will find a plastic knob which you turn anti-clock to open; be prepared for some water to flow out. Could be a flood, depending what you hv in the machine. This could be drained out by lowering the drain pipe (in the wall) into bucket......but the dr pipe should be fitted back in the exact position..........

Wont spin or turn

It may be a bad belt. Check the spin bearing and the basket drive also. Both of these control the spinning of the machine. If you have a question, let me know. I am here to help you the best I can.

Have a Avanti 798SS Washer. Does not wash nor does it spin. I heard something with the motor as if it attempting to perform said task (wash) but in the end it beeps and E2 flashes. What does this mean?

Avanti spinning problem

One of the largest problems with this washer has been the lid switch, you must check it out with a ohm meter, if the switch quits you will lose power to the motor. Things can get caught between the tanks as well, this machine is bad for the center bearing tightening up and the spin will quit. This is a new close up pictureof a typical lid switch. You can temporarily join the wires together to test the motor and washer operations.

Washer avanti #797

This is only a forum to discuss how you can fix the issue.
if the washer will not spin the the top lid switch may be damaged or not being pushed in far enough.
put it in spin and push on the switch manually
