Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Won't finish cycle, keeps working, no spinning/draining

I started a load (2 sheets) and went to bed. In the morning, it was still working. I drained it, cleaned the trap. IS THERE A SPIN ONLY option? I need these sheets spun out ... am afraid to start another load.

    how do I know for sure if it's the timer?

  • monicorn May 25, 2009

    well, I guess what I want to know, even for the future, is there a number on the DIAL on the W620 that is JUST for SPIN?

    I appreciate that this is typical of a timer problem ... and I do think the feedback was helpful, but I really don't know the answer to the above question. The washer manual is so badly organized and unhelpful. I even had to make my own chart up about how to use the machine when I got the thing, after reading thru their confused manul and finding nothing succinct.

    So it isn't just me! I'm glad to know there isn't a "spin only" number on the dial ... but I wish there was one. Thanks for taking time for this issue. This has been the most problematic washing machine I've ever had. Wish I'd never gotten it.

If the timer went bad then there is going to be no way to just select spin cycle. The timer will need to be replaced first before this can be done. Sorry for the bad news

    You can check the voltage running to the timer. But this is a common thing to go bad and your situation matches the timer going bad.

    I know I understand what you are saying, when i was going to school for appliance repair, I had the same problem. No there is not a number for just the spin cycle.

    You are welcome and good luck. Next dryer try to make sure that you find one with the word spin actually on the machine. I have found that the ones with turn dials have less problems then the ones with electrical push board

Samsung washer keeps rinsing and draining and back through same cycle

This sounds like the load is out of balance, and the machine is refilling to re-distribute the load. It senses the load during the beginning of the spin cycle.
It could be that the load is too small or that the garments have different density and water (weight) retention.
It could also be that the springs on the rods which support the bowl have sagged and have allowed the bowl to hit the out of balance switch. It could even be that the machine is rocking because the feet are not adjusted evenly..
I hope this helps you work out the problem.
Good luck.

I have a Bosch WFMC330SUC that does not end the cycle, it just keeps starting over. I assume it is a bad control board, but they are $300+ and I'd probably replace the machine instead. Any suggestions?

Hi wwwylie,

First check the Drain Pump filter, as the last 2 cycles of a machine is Drain & Spin, and if the Drain pump cannot drain the water, the filter may be clogged and the cycle won't progress to spin.

Please follow my below Tip on how to do this:


Kind Regards

Washer not finishing it's rinse/spin cycle

Run any load - large or the least bit bulky (like sheets) on the "BULKY" cycle. It takes longer, but the machine completes the wash. This shouldn't be the way it works. I love the Neptune TL for its retro look and lack of Maytag's classic big cranky knob. Too bad it runs like ****.
