Re: washing machine won't spin

The lid switch is likely defective. Test with a VOM meter and replace as needed.

SOURCE: washing machine not working

This normally indicates one of two problems.

1), the overflow pipe that goes into the sump is blocked and needs unblocking. (make sure that you have a bucket and towels at hand)
2) the carbon brushes in the motor have worn down. If the motor is on top of the machine which I believe it is on this model they are fairly cheap and easy to replace. Most washine machine repair shops sell these as spare parts.

I hope this helps

Washing machine makes this awful sound and does nothing. Won't spin, won't drain and won't fill. Just this noise. Any hints would be much appreciate. I need clean clothes!! Thanks :)

Hi, It sounds like something is jammed, most likely a drive belt has come loose or snapped. Have you tried cleaning out the filter on your machine it is possible that something got caught in there especially if there are children about. I found a mobile phone in the workings of my tumble drier once. It may also be a large build up of lime-scale but if the machine won't spin no solution springs to mind apart from physically opening the back of the machine to have a look .

Beko WMP652W washing machine will start cycle but get stuck at end of wash, doesnt go onto rinse or spin any help please?

see the next steps and use the common sense: God bless you
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 WM63. fills with water...I dont think it is heating water...rarely rotates and spins (saw it once in early stage of J prog only) seems to fill and empty but no rotate or spin....

if it fill with water then stops it is the ellement the machine first fills turns the drum then heats up the thermostat cuts in and the it emptys rinses and spins so if it does not get to temp it will stop or continue to wash forever

Washing machine making crackling noise when spinning

check for some loose items underneath the unit. washing machines normally reverses its rotation when spinning. check if mechanical solenoids pulls the right levers as it starts to spin....
