The filter was very full so i have cleaned that but similar results. I'm now thinking something has overflowed from the filter and got blocked further down the line possibly? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Nathan.

SOURCE: spinning cycle

Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

SOURCE: the spin cycle will not work. I think the drain is clogged and would like to figure out how to unclog the drain

If you unscrew the bottom front kick plate there is a black rubber piece to the right in front. In order to get to the filter make sure the washer has no water in it or it will spill all over the floor. The black rubber piece houses the filter. You need a phillips screwdriver to unscrew the clamp at the top of the black rubber piece. Once that is unscrewed you can pull it down and you'll see a white plastic filter inside. It is most likely clogged so it won't drain. When it is cleared it will work again. It is pretty easy but can be messy if there is water still in the drum. Just make sure that you put the rubber gasket back on with the clamp tightened.

My washer wont spin,


If you had to empty the water manually, i.e the outlet pump did not drain the water out then I would suggest the pump is either blocked or has failed. This will normally prevent the spin cycle from occurring. Try checking and cleaning the pump filter out.

My mastermind 708 dosen't spin after wash cycle.It spins fine in the wash cycle but dosen't drain water or spin in the spin cycle.Pease help


Your empty pump filter is blocked with debris. If it can't evacuate all the water then it wont allow the spin cycle to start. Locate the filter (probably behind a little door at the botton of the front of the machine). Remove, clean and remove the debris, re-fit and all will be well

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hi,
Following will be the causes for water not draining properly

1.There is a motor/Pump which operates to to drain the water check whether that motor is working.

2.Check filter and clean it

3.Check the drain pipeline whether it clear

4.Check the inlet valve of the machine Sometimes the drain works properly but the inlet solenoid valve will not hold and the water keeps coming in and fills the drum

Thank You

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.
