Machine not spinning dry


Top-loading washing machine has an outer tub that fills with water and sits stationary as well as an inner tub with holes in it. The inner tub has an agitator that attaches to the drive shaft. A drive belt turns the drive shaft, causing the agitator to move back and forth. Broken seals at the bottom of the agitator, or a broken belt, may cause the agitator to perform inefficiently and leave your clothes dirty

In order to properly wash clothes and prepare them for drying, a washer must agitate or spin the load. This helps wring excess water out of the clothing. If your washer has suddenly stopped spinning properly, you will notice that your clothes will be sopping wet when the washer is done. Typically, there is a simple reason for this problem that you can fix without calling in a professiona

1 Check the lid switch. You will notice on the lip of the lid there is a small stem that hangs down. This fits into a hole on the top of the washer housing and tells the washer the lid is closed and it is safe to spin the load. If the switch is faulty or has been blocked, the washer will not agitate or spin.

2 Clean out the switch receptacle. Use a multipurpose cleaner and a sponge (not a paper towel, it can shred and get caught in the switch receptacle.) Thoroughly clean the area around the switch and the receptacle.

3 Test the washer. Close the lid, allow the washer to fill with an inch of water, and move the selector to the spin cycle. Pull out on the selector. If it does not spin, stop the cycle (push the selector in) and turn the washing machine off. This means there could be three problems with the washer: the switch might be broken, something might be caught in the agitator, or the motor for the agitator may be burned out.

4 Check underneath the agitator. Small items such as underwear, panty hose or bra straps can become caught underneath the agitator and keep it from moving. Run your hand underneath this area and see if you feel anything. If you do, unwrap the item and test the washer again. If it still does not work, move to Step 5.

5 Contact a repair person. If the washer still will not agitate or spin, it will need to either have the switch replaced or the motor replaced. Contact a certified appliance repair person to have the machine inspected. If it is still under warranty, the repair person's visit should be covered.

However if its only the agitator arm, then

Instructions to Remove/replace the Agitator

1 Unplug the washer.

2 Slide a putty knife under each side of the washing machine top to release the springs holding the top in place. Lift up the top on its hinges.

3 Pull the tub clips from the inner tub using a pair of pliers.

4 Pull up on the agitator top to expose the nut holding it in place. Remove the nut using a socket wrench. Lift up on the agitator to remove it from the machine.

5 Turn the agitator upside down and remove the seals from the bottom. Replace them with a new set of seals. If the agitator is cracked, replace it.

6 Reassemble the washer.

Removing the Belt

7 Unplug the washer from the wall outlet.

8 Pull out on the bottom panel on the front of the machine. Look underneath to locate the drive belt.

9 Pull on the drive belt at the washer tub to remove it. Push down on the idler pulley near the motor to remove the belt from the machine. Route the new belt around the pulleys in the same way as before.

10 Reassemble the machine, plug it in and test.

Dear Sir: Hello i hope everything is o.k
I will give some tips follow :
There are 2 possible problem: a) Mechanical + b) Electrical.
You must clean with water and soap and then dry very well . When you lubricate some part must be use oil 3 in 1, is very light.Not use any abrasive chemical or alcohol for clean.And try again if this resolve the problem
2).If Not. Some oil or lubricant fall in the belt of the main motor, and he is sliping.
Try to clean very well the pulley and the belt of the motor+ front and rear roller from Belt is sliping too clean very well and dry .
3) If after you check this is doesn´t resolve the problem, electrical problem with the main motor.Check this is function o.k, Reset the circuit breaker. And try again.

It sounds like the spring in my washer has broken. It made a loud sound during a cycle and now the basket is completely off balance and barely moves. I was wondering if the spring is worth fixing or if...


This could be an easy fix if the counter weight came loose from the top of the tub shell which is a common problem. Pull the unit out from the wall and removed the back panel to inspect the counter weight, spider pulley and belt. If the counter weight is not broke you can reattach it to tub shell and retighten the bolts. If it is broke it is about $30.00 plus shipping. Inspect the spider pulley which is attached to the tub with the belt around it. If it is not broken, you can turn the pulley by hand to check the tub bearings for free movement. Make sure the belt is in good shape and attached to the motor spindle and spider pulley. If the spider pulley is broken you may have to order a new pulley. If you have to remove the spider pulley you may want to use a gear puller from an auto parts store to remove the pulley. The belt is easily replaced once you know the below procedure:

1. Place the belt around the center of the motor pulley stretching the belt to the spider pulley leaving no slack in the belt.

2. Keeping the slack out of the belt, place the belt on the outside rim of the spider pulley as much as the belt tension will allow you to do so.

3. Keep the tension on the belt and slowly rotate the spider pulley counter clockwise until the belt is completely on the spider pulley.

Rotate the spider pulley several times to make sure the belt stays in the center of the spider pulley. If the belt is not centered after several revolutions you need to remove the belt and reinstall it after moving the ribs of the belt on the motor pulley in the direction which centers the belt. If it was my unit I would fix it unless you have to replace the outer tub shell (approximately $300.00 for parts only).

The belt is sliping as I walk or run


* take nail polish or paint and place a mark starting on the front roller pulley and going onto the front roller metal shaft
* then try to walk on it and see if the white mark separates
* if it does then the roller is bad and would need replaced or tap screws placed through the pulley into the metal shaft to hold it in place
* if it doesn't separate then the drive belt is slipping and most likely will need replaced, although you could try spraying belt dressing on it to see if that would be a temporary fix.
* if neither of these is your problem and the walk belt is slipping then you will need to try to adjust the screws in the back of the treadmill through the end caps. these are allen wrench screws.
Tighten each one the same amount such as 1 full turn to start with.
see if you can now walk without it slipping.
If not then tighten 1-2 more turn on both sides.
If after 2-3 full turns it is not tight enough
I would recommend replacing the walk belt.

Hopefully this helps with your problem!
