Washimg machine agitates and drains but does not spin

Mine had same issue. My problem was with the switch. Try gently wiggling the knob, then move it to the end of a rinse cycle, just before the spin cycle. Pull the knob out, and the timer should start clicking, after a few seconds you will hear a clunk sound as the transmission engages then starts spinning. I disassembled the unit and removed the motor, only to discover the coupler was not damaged.

Roper rab4132hq0 washer does not spin consistently. Most of the time, the spin will not engage, this isn't just for the spin cycle, but for the spinning during the wash and rinse cycles as well....

Sounds like a bad gearcase.You have a machine that is direct drive. The motor is hooked directly to the gearcase by a little coupler. Look under and make sure the coupler is in place if it is then you need gearcase.Again the coupler is located between the motor and gearcase. Hope this helped.

Will not drain water sipn cycle does not work

This sounds as if you have a whirlpool/kenmore washing machine. If the machine is going through the cycles and then completlyl shutting off at the spin/drain cycle the first thing to check will be the lid switch. This is located either under the lid on the opposite side of the hinges, or under the control heading. Most of the time you can see if its physically broke if its under the lid, but if it looks intact get a small screwdriver and press down on it to see if you get a clicking noise. If the switch isnot there than it will be under the control heading. Slowly lower and close the lid to see if you hear a clicking noise to see if the switch is actuating. If you can't hear this noise, that means the switch isn't making contact telling the machine to go to the next cycle. Now, if the machine is getting to that cycle and is trying to drain/spin, and you can hear the motor runnin, something may e jammed in the pump. This is not a common occurance. If you specify which brand you have I could help a little more. Good luck.

I got a Kenmore washer, 70 series model# 110.20702990 It just started a problem when in the spin mode. I hear a clicking sound down by the motor when it is spining and pumping the water out. The tub speeds...

The motor is not getting to speed. There is a loose wire, bad selector switch, or bad start windings in the motor. Check all the wires carefully and push firmly into the motor connection. This is not an easy one to find unless you get lucky.

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start

Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......
