SOURCE: Ecosmart loud during spin cycle

My majestic sounds exactly the same on the spin cycle and I wondered what the problem was. Is your unit still under warranty? If so, call the customer service line and get a repair started. I am a firm believer in warranty work on products I have purchased. WE pay hard earned cold cash on our consumer products and WE should be taken care of properly.

Good luck and please let us know what the solution was to your problem.

SOURCE: F 11

"F11" is a serial communications error associated with the Central Control Unit (CCU) of the washer. This is the "brain" of the washer and often referred to as the Main Control Board or Motherboard. The error code can indicate a problem with the circuit card itself, a relay sticking on the circuit card, interconnecting wiring loose, or the door latch not latching correctly. If the problem is consistent, you may want to UNPLUG the washer & remove the top by removing the three screws in the back of the washer where the top meets the back panel. Once the screws are removed, the top should slide back then lift off. The CCU is located in the center of the washer behind the wash tub. There are a series of interconnecting cables connected to the board. Try removing these connectors (ONE AT A TIME) and re-seating them to make sure they are connected properly. Check all the connectors running to the door latch assembly as well. The latch should be behind the front panel casing on the right-hand side of the door. Make sure all the connectors are snug. Then, plug the washer back in and perform a diagnostics test by selecting DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then pushing any button under OPTIONS, 4 times (it must be the SAME button, however). "C00" will display on the washer operator console as the washer will run through a series of tests. An audible "click" will be heard when the door latch locks. This indicates that the CCU is communicating with the latch and that it is locking. The washer will then COLD FILL, HOT FILL, TEST ALL THE FEATURES OF THE DISPENSER, TUMBLE, DRAIN AND SPIN. The diagnostics tests nearly ALL the major functions of the washer. If there is a problem associated with any failed component, a fault code should appear. The test, however, is not all inclusive. Especially, if the problem is intermittent. These are the hardest type of problem to troubleshoot, because the symptoms don't always show up. If the problem continues to show up and the washer fails to complete a cycle, or is inoperative, I would replace the CCU. There are several websites that you can order parts from. The board costs about $170. If you're someone that likes to do your own repairs and wants to avoid the added labor costs of a repairman, this is MODERATE in difficulty. These machines generally cost around $1600 new. A $170 circuit board is a small price to pay in comparison and still cheaper than buying a new one. Post back with comments and let me know if you wish to pursue this repair and I can give you some info on how to order the CCU and how to replace it.

SOURCE: LG WD-8013F wont spin

Hi deppgirl,
I checked the lint filter at the front bottom left hand side and it was full of junk.  Once emptied it worked a treat.  Pull the flap down and turn the large knob anti-clockwise and pull to remove.  Good luck.

SOURCE: Machine wont go into spin cycle

The pump fiter is probably blocked.
Remove lower rear panel of washer.
Locate, and remove large black hose on bottom of tub.
Remove plastic filter inside, and clean.
Refit filter and hose.
Should now be o/k.
Before you do anything, lay the drain hose down into a bucket or bowl, and drain all the water out, so you do not have a flood when you remove the hose.
please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: after the spin cycle runs the clothes are still soaking wet

I had that problem at one time with my old washer and what it ended up being was the Washer Dog Agitators were broken and causing the it to slip and not spin correctly. I would try checking the Dog Agitators.
Here's A picture of a typical top-load washer breakdown to show you where they are located --->Here<---
I hope this helps. If that is the problem I bought mine at Sears for about $8, normally in stock item.

We have an Ultima washing machine and creases the cloths very badly any suggestions please


The amount of creasing you will get is directly related to the speed you select for the final spin dry cycle and the spin after the first wash cycle which occurs prior to the rinse cycle. The higher the speed and the longer it goes for the more the clothes will crease.

Experiment with different spin speeds on your machine for clothing that is subject to the creasing problem. Also do not put too many items in the machine for a wash as many people do as this will contribute to creasing. Always under load your machine for every wash cycle.

Spin drying is a compromise between creasing and maximum water removal. If you want less creasing you will need to select a more gentle spin dry speed but you will also have the clothes coming out of the machine with a higher water content and they will take a bit longer to dry. The spin time on the program may also be shorter.

In my own machines I use a gentle wash and spin cycle for all clothing that I don't want heavily creased. Running it on a wash cycle with a high and longer spin speed when the machine is spinning the clothes after the initial wash, and then again after the final rinse, will thoroughly crease the clothes every time.

Also bear in mind that different fabrics that are suitable for machine washing will perform differently and some are just too subject to creasing even if you use the most gentle wash, rinse and spin cycle. Hence you can take 2 different 100% cotton fabrics out of a machine and hang them to dry and one will be almost crease free and the other will be thoroughly creased. With these fabrics that are just very subject to wash creasing, it is better to hand wash and rinse them. Then after rinsing drip dry them or put them in the machine and spin them for 1 -2 minutes maximum just to get some of the water out and hang dry them.

Washer wont rinse,spin or drain


you might have a problem with the lid switch..there is a plunger on the bottom side of the lid, close to the front edge which operates the lid switch..if the switch is broken, it probably has become torn apart so, if you can identify the two wires that would've been on the switch, you can just twist them together, tape them and the machine will operate normally, until you can get the switch from Sears... because I have a service contract with Sears, I don't pay for the repair (twice) they normally charge dearly both for the part and labor..

Washer squeals in rinse or spin


When the washer is in the final spin cycle and starts to sqeal, just pour a little water through the drawer about half of a glass full usually does the trick. What apparantly happens is that the connection/seal between the big grey rubber seal and the stainless steel drum has dried out due to the centrifugal effect of the spin cycle and it needs to be wetted to keep the sealed area lubricated and cool. The squealing is a result of the dry rubbing of these parts during the spin cycle.

Wont spin after second rinse cycle regardless of what wash cycle


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!!!

Sears 110.23812100 washer leaks when spinning


There is a pause after the pump out that shift the tranmission into spin also if you open the lid the unit will go into spin before it pumps out completely . They have since fixed this issue...The newer models work offf the pressure switch to tell the unit when to go into spin only after the water level switch is open telling the machine there is no water left in the unit
