My frigidaire LTF6700FSO will not spin


Your symptom sounds like a jammed drain pump. Was it spinning and then stopped before the spin cycle should have ended or did it not begin spinning when it should have?

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSB6300PW0 is about 6.5 years old. In the middle of a wash it started making a very loud humming noise. The machine wont agitate or spin. It still fills and drains the water...


Renee,

This might be too late for you but hope it helps!

I was able to fix a similar problem with the same model washer of a similar age so see if any of the following helps you.

Our washer died during a rinse/spin cycle and started making a horrific spinning/clicking sound when it was supposed to be agitating or spinning. It filled and drained like normal, and the horrific noise stopped when the lid was lifted.

Because of those two facts, I discovered it was likely the direct drive coupling, which connects the washer's motor to the transmission.

Turns out, that horrific sound was indeed the sound of one of the couplings spinning uselessly after it broke.

After some internet research, I discovered it was a simple matter of getting and installing the new coupling, which was very easy to do with a little professional help via YouTube:



Also, here is the website of a parts supplier with great schematics and great prices that I bought the part from.

Good luck!

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Grinding Sound


Sounds like the brakes have become noisy, just like in an automobile if they glaze over they start to squeak. This really wont hurt the machine but if you dissasemble the machine (or pay a professional at the most 1.5 hr labor since your washer is the best design and fairly simple to repair) and clean the brakes (basket drive assy) and the drum (part of the tub support)
