Question about Washing Machines
Hi there luckypenn904 "unhappy jan", if your washer won't spin the lid switch, timer, drive belt, transmission, or agitate/spin solenoid could be the cause here, Sometimes if the load is too heavy, the washer won't spin. Take some of the clothes out and try the spin cycle again with a lighter load.
also.........with these newer models it could be as simple as reseting the programming of the microprocesser in the control panel..........try this switch off the washer at power button and at the wall for 5 minutes.......now after 5 minutes turn on at the wall but dont press power on button on the washer.....first turn the dial to drain/spin option and then press the on switch on your washer and start but make sure you have clothes in there to give it some weight, clothes you want to dry, if it now spins then fine it just needed a reset....otherwise take it to your local repair centre or claim service under your warranty through your warranty plan ok because it will be one of the above components are not right ok.......good luck

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven from the flow into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.
If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.
Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.
Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.
