Washing machine not spining

Hi my washing machine was working fine yesterday.
This morning themachine started to beep constantly and advised of error and service 37 required.

The machine is pumping water but will not spin!
When I progress the machine to first rinse cycle the water flows but no spin. then it progresses by itself to second rinse but will not spin and finish. what happens instead it goes back to first rinse cycle for 20 mins then second for 9 mins ( every time I open lid time resets for spin cycle.)

You may have a problem with the rotor position sensor. This sensor is situated on the motor windings and should really be replaced by a qualified tech.

Used machine 3 times this morning and it was fine, now wont work

Check the manual, what the two beeps mean. could be the door is not closed correct, or the machine can't take in water, or whatever what. It is an error, and with this it won't start.
Not knowing what machine you are referring to, I can't give more details, because I don;t know in what manual I should look. Sorry.

Glws1339csi is not washing

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire washer, model#GLWS1339CSI, will not wash your clothes. I also see that it will spin. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and start any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-

When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop,
Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly.
It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch.
Your error code will determine this.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

Constant beeping while washing

This can be due to fault within the control panel output to the indication and buzzer. If the washer works without any issue and the cycles are correct, then it is best to remove the buzzer connections as the drive output transistor or IC could be intermittent and so works erratic.
