FIRST IS ALL THE WATER BEING PUMPED OUT? SOMETIMES IF IT IS NOT THE SPIN WILL BE SLOW. ALSO CHECK BY LOOKING IN THE BACK OF WASHER THAT NOTHING IS CAUSING A DRAG ON THE TUB. CHECK THAT THE BELT IS NOT LOOSE AND SLIPPING.

SOURCE: GE WASHER SPIN OUT PROBLEMS

Sounds like the suspension for the drum is having problems - there are usually springs holding the drum up and acting as shocks - one of the springs may have come off during an unbalanced load.

SOURCE: GE top loading washer does not spin out water

The belt could be broken, if not. Unplug washer for 2 minutes, plug back in, open and close lid 7 times, this should reset electronic motor.

SOURCE: GE WSSH300G0WW front load washer

Had same problem with GE wssh300 front load washer. Removed two screws from front bottom panel (under washer front). Pulled off panel, loosened screw from a seal ring on the rubber flex hose going to a 4" square plastic housing. Reached down inside and found a ton of lint (probaby a 2" balls worth) jamming outlet. Removed lint an works geat. Very easy to do by tilting front of washer up and putting supports under front to keep elevated. Be careful to make sure supports are sturdy washer can't dop when servicing.

Washer will not spin r drain model whirlpool la7680xmwo


Sounds most likely a broken/defective lid switch. The lid switch on a top-load washer is a safety switch that detects whether the top-load washer lid is closed. The lid must be closed when the basket spins; some top-load models require that the washer lid be closed before the washer drive motor runs (thus no draining). If the lid switch isn't properly detecting whether the lid is closed replace the switch.

It will fill up with water but nothing else


check the lid switch,set the timer on spin,push it in so it will run,get a screw driver or anything that will fit into the hole on the right side,that's the lid switch,the strike on the lid hits it when you close the lid,if the switch is broke it kills the power to the machine,it's a safety so the machine won't run with the lid open,when you push down on the switch you should hear a click and it should spin and drain,if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is broke,or you can close the lid,lift it up a few inches and close it down,do this a few times,when it closes and opens if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is bad.part number 3949247 and it's around 45 dollars.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFsvLiuTniU copy and paste,it will show you how to get at the switch.let me know what you find so if someone else has the same problem they will read what you found,thanks

Hi, my old fisher paykel top loader without lcd display is unable to drain or spin. it occurred after I advance the wash cycle from wash to spin. the washer stopped abruptly and failed to drain or spin...


Hi just read your posting.Now you said in your posting that the motor is hot to touch.Is this the main drive motor underneath the machine or the pump which has a fan attached to it?If it is the motor with the fan attached then your pump is jamming.Bail most of the water out by hand with a small pot or bucket because then I can guide you step by step to remove the pump to remove the object which is jamming it.Please reply when most of the water is out and I will give you step by step instructions to remove the pump.

It's heavy duty thin twin model. The cycle stops at spin and water stays in the mashine.


When it gets to the SPIN cycle,wait 45 seconds. If it does not spin,open then close the lid.
If it spins then,replace the timer.
If it does not spin,replace the lid switch.

make sure the lid is making contact with the switch when the lid is closed, listen closly for a "click" noise upon closing the lid, if you dont hear anythig the lid is no tbeing recognized as closed therefore will not enter a spin mode for safety reasons.somtetimes by pressing down harder on left side of the lid you can get it to startup. if this is the case a simple solution may be in order, after lifting the lid make sure the scrrws attaching the lid to the hinges are tight, then if you place your hand under the left rear side of the lid you feel the lid actuator( its the opposing side to the door hinge) with a nutdiver( or similliar hollow pointed metal object) slide it over the metal hinge and apply force to slighty bend to toward the reare of the machine( as you apply pressure the lid will want to push against you , thast s normal its the hinge your bending) after slighty bending now see if tyou can here the click?

Spinning problem


Following your description the problem is with the lid switch. Get an access to it and find out whether something prevents his smooth movment,its has a loose wire connection or the switch is malfunction and should be replaced. Good luck!
