SOURCE: washer won't spin at all

YEH WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS TAKE OFF THE MOTOR AND CHECK TO SEE IF THE CARBON BRUSHES ARE WORN OUT HAD THE SMAE PROBLEM TODAY WITH A MACHINE CAND THE IT WAS THE CARBON BRUSHES. THERE NOT VERY EXPENSIVE TO BUY AND VERY EASY TO FIT. tHE MOTOR IS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE DRUM AND IS ATTACHED BY TWO 13 MM BOLTS. UNDOO THEM CUT THE TIE CLIP WHICH IS CONNECTED TO THE MOTOR. UNSCREW THE TWO SCREWS EACH FOR BOTH BRUSHES. CHECK TO SEE HOW FAR THE STICK OUT FROM THEIR BALCK HOLDERS, IF THEY ONLY STICKING OUT A FEW MM THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO CHANGE THEM HOPEFULLY THAT WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. I RECONDTION HOPTPOINT MACHINES ALL DAY AND MOST LIKELY THIS IS YOUR PROBLEM.

SOURCE: drum??

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. If all this doesn't work check your pump(may be clogged), refer to manual.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

SOURCE: Hotpoint wma22 fills with water but won't wash or spin

Suspect motor brushes need replacing.
Simple task accessed by removing the top of the washer and releasing the clips holding the brushes into the motor - clip on back of brush - to remove the brush assembly.
Replace complete brush assembly.

Remove the motor, and check the brushes in the motor, if o/k, then could be a board prob, or something as simple as a broken or bad connection.

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.

Maytag washer fills and washes but doesnt rinse or spin.


i would check your water level switch function, it will be located at the end of a 1/4 inch flexible tubing coming from the washer drum, my past experience indicates the replacement of this assembly will restore operation to your unit.`

Washer will not spin at all no code . will drain and tumble back and forth,when it comes time to spin it turns off.


A washing machine is basically a big tub that repeatedly fills with water and then drains, spins to wring clothes dry, and has a device for stirring things up-- either an agitator in the middle of a top-load machine or a rolling drum in the case of a front-loader.
The four cycles that every washer performs are fill, wash, drain, and spin. Though these functions are pretty basic, a number of things can go wrong with them.
There are a number of problems that you can fix quite simply; some issues, however, are better left in the hands of an appliance repairperson.Problems that commonly occur with a clothes washer are discussed in depth below.If your washer doesn't run, be sure it's plugged in and that the receptacle works (the circuit hasn't overloaded). Before working on the washing machine, be sure to unplug it.
To prevent problems, follow good maintenance procedures. Use the right amount of detergent for your washer and your water hardness, make sure the machine is level, and don't overload it for the cycle chosen.

Washing Machine Does Not Fill
If the washer doesn't fill, the water inlet screens may be blocked. Clean or replace them. (Check your owner's manual for the location of the screens; they're often located at one end of the supply hoses, or you may have to remove a panel to access them.) Other reasons for not filling may be that either the timer or temperature selector is broken--both of these are repairs for an appliance repairperson.

Washer Does Not Spin
If your washer doesn't spin, check to see if the clothes have jammed or are unbalanced in the drum before calling a repairperson. Unbalanced clothes will also cause a w
asher to shudder or "walk." If straightening out the load doesn't stop the washer from shaking, look at the feet underneath and be sure they are properly adjusted to keep the washer sitting level on the floor (you just turn them to move them up or down).
Clothes Are Wet After Spin Cycle
If your clothes remain wet after your washer's spin cycle, perform the following diagnostics:
1) Lift the lid during the spin cycle. If the tub is not spinning, you may have a damaged motor coupler. Call a repairperson to replace this part.
2) If the tub is spinning, recheck the load to make sure it is balanced. If you are certain the load is balanced but your clothes are still wet, you may need to call a repairperson to replace a damaged motor pulley, tub bearing, belt, or clutch.

3) You can also follow the troubleshooting steps outlined in "Washing Machine Doesn't Drain." You may have a problem with your drain hose or pump.

I have a GE washer model wwse3160a. It does not function except it fills with water. I checked the drive belt, I tried turning the motor clockwise and it spins the drum. All the lights come on but it...


Hello
I am familiar with this problem and 99% of the time it is caused by the washer lid safety switch, if the switch doesn't function the washer control will not let the cycle run past filling the tub with water. You can buy the part and get information on how to install it from a company called www.repairclinic.com

Water continues to fill into the washer drum on the spin cycle.


Hi

You could have a stuck solenoid valve
Try this: Set the water temp on cold. Turn on only the hot water.
Does hot water try and fill the drum?
If so then there is a problem with the hot solenoid.

Next set the water on hot. Turn on only the cold water. Does cold water try and fill the drum ?
If so then there is a problem with the cold solenoid.

Washer fills with water and thats it


Possible a bad motor control board. Depending on the age of the washer, you may need to replace the motor control board and the motor as a kit. Also be sure to test that the motor control board is getting power, I've seen cases of the motor/ motor control failing and taking out the main control also. The tech sheet is in the console and should walk you through the steps.

check the drain hole when you start the machine if the water is coming back out , if yes that means your dump valve is bad.
