Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.

Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.

Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)
Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.
On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Washing machine won't go to spin cycle if there are towels in it

Washing machines have trouble if they are overloaded and the load gets out of balance. This occurs most often with towels. Open the machine and lift the towels out and put them back in evenly to get the load to finish. You will see how heavy they are when full of water. In future, try running with a few less towels and see if it works ok. You have found the other 'fix' by draining and running spin only which probably resettles the load.

Washer pauses then carries on during cycle - is this normal. Also cycle time is not accurate against regular house clock. Thanks.

not being advised of the make , model or if top or front loader , you ask an almost question
in top loaders when it reaches the spin cycle ,it sins and the water comes in in steps to help disperse the suds during the low speed spin cycle
as for the accuracy it is controlled by a circuit board and the timer is in the board and will not be calibrated for accuracy but if it is way out then get in a service technician to see if it can be adjusted

Sounds like a clogged pump or outlet hose. They're pretty easy to check/replace, but you will spill a lot of water if you don't have a locking hose clamp. The cabinet comes off from the front, (after loosening the control panel, unplugging the lid switch, and popping the spring clips behind the panel), so you should have a good amount of room to set the cabinet aside, but you'll then have easy access to the workings, with the pump and outlet hoses right in front.

My smartdrive is 12 years old and now is not pumping away water or spinning

Hi just read your posting.Now 1st you need to bail some of the water out by hand using a small bucket or pot ,enough so you can lean the machine back against the wall so you can look under the machine.To the front right under the machine you will see a black or red fan.Turn this fan clockwise and anticlockwise a few times to loosen the pump.The fan should turn freely.Put the machine back on its and select a sin cycle.Push start and hopefully the machine will start to drain and then spin.Please reply on how you got on and for further information.Looking forward to your reply.

Spinning cycle

When it is spinning, there is no agitation. Why? there is 1 motor with 2 directions to provide sinning and agitation by 2 different mechanisms. The sound from spinning, and rinsing could be some worn out parts from the mechanism need to be inspected and replaced accordingly such as the pulley, the clutch, the brake and 8 springs from bottom tube hung to the chassis to keep the tube balance under the load. Hope this can help.

My Hotpoint Aquarius WF210 washing machine drum is not rotating

I think the belt has come off or has been damaged.

To open the machine slide out the machine. On the back panel lower 1/3 you will see a plastic panel remove the screws and the panel will come away. Inside you will see the belt. I suspect you will need to reattach the belt of remove it and buy a replacement.
