Reason for taking a long time spinning is that it might have an uneven load. The wrong number of bath towels, for instance will mean it takes 3 or 4 tries at getting the spin right before it can spin them at the correct speed. An unbalanced load doesn't do the machine any good either.
After this wash has finished try it on something a lot lighter- say a duvet cover only with a couple of pillowcases. If that takes a long time too then the trouble is with the machine.

Looks like your "programmer" has stopped on the "spin cycle".
Could be a sensor has gone.
But everything points to the "little drive" in the programmer.
You could try "Manually Rotating The Selector Round a Few Times"
(This could free something off)
If a new "programmer" is needed, This could be more expensive than a new machine.

If the machine is under a year old it will still be under guarantee. If it is slightly over the year, but under 18 months old you still have a good case to go back to the manufacturer and get them to fix it.

Door wont open on washing machine zwf16581w at the end of the cycle


The door is designed to stay shut at the end of a cycle usually for about 4 minutes, even if you switch the machine off at the mains. Other than that you probably need a repair.

Washing machine wont hold water on any setting


raise the main drain hose to the top of the back control head. there may be a problem with the main hose being to low and the water is gravity siphoning out of the washer.make sure the washer is off when you lift the hose up but do not remove it from the wall,you should here water drain out once it has stopped draining restart you machine and it should fill to the proper level and quit then go into your wash cycle

The machine completes 2 cycles instead of 1


Based on your description of the problem. The only way this can happen is if the timer is faulty. It is simply skipping the intended end time and continueing the cycle. However when is the timer, it usually wont run correctly for both cycles..but it sounds like you may have sort of lucked out on how it has become faulty. Hope this helps.

Thanks

Hi, my machine starts for a few seconds then stops and pause button wont stop flashing, have tried turning off and on but same thig keeps happenig, please help x


if it is a HE kind of machine it is supposed to stop and start a bunch of times at the beginning of the cleaning cycle. Did you wait for a while to see if it ends up running the cleaning cycle?

the new machines are kind of freaky the way they work.

Asko 10505 runs through was cycle in approx. 30 seconds, then wont drain. Simply stops. It doesnt matter which cycle I start with, the dial moves quickly to stop. It fill with water and spins. ANY HELP...


hi sir' start the wash machine empty and see if it happens when nothing is in it.
2. When machine is off, open the top grab the centerpiece inside the wash machine and pull and push it slowly, does it move? (For safety unplug the machine)
3. Make sure machine is 100% level (front to back, left to right)

The most common thing is bad drum bearing, which force the wash machine out of whack when in spin / wash. Which are common and the best thing is to call Maytag. 

thank u .........................................please rate

Fisher & Paykel GW703 wont stop!


It sounds like your machine has been programmed to automatically run through the various cycles continuously. Most likely in error.
