If clothes are still wet this mean there is still water in the drum and the pressure switch is not switch in empty position. The fault should be sought in the draining phase. Could be: drain pump ....

SOURCE: drum stuck fast

hiya
sounds like the drum bearings may have seized, or they are worn and the belt has come off and wrapped around the drum pulley. a few things you can check are:-

does the inner drum have any up and down movement to it?

does the belt appear to be on ok? (you will need to remove the lid to see)

have you noticed any black marks on the clothes recently?


hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfuness of this reply, thanks kj

I had a similar problem with a different make recently. After cleaning the filter which didn't seem to have anything in it and rinsing the filters on the in and out pipes I took all the clothes out and ran it empty on two different full programmes and somehow the gremlins disappeared and it works fine now.

Zwp1121p Spinning but clothes still we5 through


Is the spin cycle reaching full spin speed or is it not spinning as fast as it should? If it isn't reaching full speed it could be caused by an uneven load (as this will stop some machines from spinning properly). Towels and items which get very heavy when wet can cause this.

LG Tromm washer wont spin through the spin cycle and reads error ue. I have tried to balance the load several times and still get the same error.


This error generally happens when people try to run a bulky load, like a coat, rug, pillow, etc., using a high speed spin. For these loads, choose the low speed spin. After the cycle completes, if you think the clothes are too wet, power up the machine again but instead of choosing a cycle, just push the spin speed button until it shows the next higher spin speed (usually about 14 minutes will show on the display) and push start. The machine will usually be able to get to a faster speed now, as the clothes have some of the water spun out of them from the earlier low speed spin, allowing the machine to reach a higher spin speed without the Unbalance Error code showing up. Of course, you want to make sure the machine is on a solid floor with all the legs adjusted properly also.

The washer is not spinning well...Clothes are partly wet when cycle is completely off...it used also to leak at one time where we can see some water when the cycle is complete...


Hello, when the clothes are partly wet when cycle is complete then check these.
1. Motor coupler
2. Spin cycle

MOTOR COUPLER; To test the motor coupler, restart the washer in it's spin cycle,let the machine runs for a minutes and then open the lid and notice if the tub is spinning: if it's spinning when you lift the lid that means the coupler is fine and if it doesn't spin that means you have to replace it.
SPIN CYCLE: If the washer doesn't reach it's proper spin speed,the cloth may be wet at the end of the cycle,check to be if the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again,if the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt which you have to replace.
Thanks

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Maytag neptune frot load will not reach full spin speed.


It will not spin while washing, it's more of a rocking back and forth. As far as the spin cycle. If it's not reaching full speed I bet you'll notice that it's not doing the full cycle because the load is bouncing around and cause the washer to shut off. take some of the clothes out and watch it spin the water out.

My smart drive is not reaching full spin speed on spin cycle


You are right with your last comment. Laying the machine on its back is a no no. It allows the residue water in the bowl to possibly travel up the small plastic tube and enter into the water level sensor on the main (computer) control unit. It only takes a very small amount of water and it upsets the sensor so that the machine may not go through its cycle correctly. The water (depending on model) is extremely difficult or impossible to get out.
This may cause the machine to think that the bowl is not completely drained and so it will not go into full speed spin. Other problems may occur as well.
Bear in mind also that that a number of machine models do not go to full speed spin on a water temperature setting of warm or higher. When checking for high speed spin put your water temperature control down to cold / warm or cold.
Check also that your machine is sitting level ( the bowl is sitting centre in relation to the top shroud. If the bowl is leaning toward the rear of the machine when you look down into it, the ability to spin may be affected. There is a lever behind the bowl which activates a switch if the bowl comes in contact with it (when the wash load is out of balance) to stop the spin. The switch can also be activated when the machine is not level.
If your problem persists you may have to get a replacement main contol unit. If you are a little savey at technical things you may be able to get a discarded control unit from your local tip or recycler and recover the water level sensor for a change over. This may involve soldering though as well as precautions concerning stored electricity in the control unit capacitors and precautions about static electricity from your body or solder iron destroying other electronic components on the main control unit.
Hope this helps.

Wash is still wet after spin cycle


Hi!

If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician

For further assistance need your machines model no.

Beach towels sopping wet after machine done spinning


The washer will not proceed into high speed spin with just two large beach towels in the basket. The washer is detecting a out of balance condition, and remains in low speed spin. Solution? Try adding more items into the basket. With only two towels, there is not enough mass to balance the washer. With more clothing or towels, there is more items for the machine to balance, and reach full speed spin.

The only other thing that could cause this, would be if the water in the tub is not completely draining in the time allowed. This washe does not have a cleanout, and checking for an obtruction in the pump is difficult. I would go with the more clothes first, then see.
