Re: Washer does not spin

May want to check out the belt on the bottom. If it got wet, it may have stretched it out to wear it wont work. The tension is caused by the motor sliding in and out on a sliding system, which may have gotten a little rust in there. Make sure the motor will move somewhat freely and that the belt isnt stretched to much. Might be an easy fix. Good Luck!!! Jim

What is the probable cause of an LE code?

Most washers give it a certain amount of time to fill up with water and if it doesn't sense it has filled up with enough water after that time it will stop the washer. This is done as a safety so your washer won't flood your house. First thing to check is that the washer is filling up with hot and cold washer correctly, and that the water is coming into the washer at a good rate. The hot water valve has one solenoid, but the cold water has three solenoids (more to go bad). A clogged or failed water valve is the most common thing that we see cause this type of a problem.

Water level drops below the reset level during the wash or rinse portion of the cycle. Check for leaks in the washer tub and connected components. Check the installation of the drain system. Water can siphon out of the washer if it's not installed properly.

Why wont the motor on a top load roper washer work after a flood

If the motor was submerged in water it's probably shot. They aren't made to function during and after exposure to water.

Washer sat in about 4 inches of rainwater water

Do you have friend who would take the time to open the machine.
4 inches might cause a motor short, it is iffy
also when the storm drain backed.. did it trip the circuit breakers that protects your washer

Hello, On Neptune washer serial # 34098916EF, Washer tub fills with about 2 inches of water within hours after doing a wash. When I spin the tub by hand, I hear water sloshing inside. Machine drains fine....

You have a bad water fill valve. Until you get it fixed shut water valves off at the wall so that you don't have a flood if the fill valve on the machine fails completely. Let me know if there is anything else I can Help you with.

Water Overflow

hi there,

i would recommend checking the water level switch or lid switch and also the cable leading to it. that is what sends a signal to the machine control to stop filling with water.

Another flood. GE washer

The water sound is normal. There is a solution in the top of inner tub for balance. Is it in not stopping the fill cycle? If so check to make sure small hose is still attached to outer tu at bottom left front. This dome that it connects to can become filled with scum and causes the unit to not know that it's full. This causes flooding. You can try removing hose and cleaning out with thin wire. Sometime only fix is to replace outer tub. Again, this is only if overflowing!!
Another possibility is a bad break allowing outer tub to spin in agitation. This throws water up over sides of tub. Monitor unit when agitating to see if outer tub picks up speed and starts to spin. It is normal for it to index.
