SOURCE: my hec washing machine is not spinning and the water wont empty

Try turning the spin basket, something may have jammed itself inside the tub. You can remove the front kick panel and remove the tub to pump hose to clean it out.
If ok, you might have other problems like a broken belt in the back.

SOURCE: my washing machine won't spin.

Hi eddyloz2000,

I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

After this, the Spin cycle will run, after the drainage procedure. If it does not, then you may need to replace the Drain Motor. Which is a easy task.

Kind Regards :-)

Spinner safety switch


Replace the switch (with the machine unplugged). As you indicated, it's a safety device and therefore I won't tell you how to defeat it. It's a relatively inexpensive part.

Zanussi 1400 Front Loader: Machine washs clothes as per normal but does not drain the water and cannot go into the spin cycle. Sits there doing nothing then starts bleeping.


This is almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. While it's trying to get the water evacuated, you will probably see the machine doing a slow tumble for up to 8 minutes and you may also hear the empty pump running too.

You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (You haven

Fills with water, drains, will not spin. sometimes will not fill


This is almost certainly the filter to the empty pump blocked. When you power up the machine, the first thing it does is make sure there is no water left over in the tub, if it can't evacuate any water it finds there, it won't go any further. Same on a spin, if after a set time the water hasn't emptied the empty cycle will stop but the spine cycle wont start because there is still water in the drum.

Locate and clean your empty pump filter.

My LG washing machine model-fuzzy logic WF-s6607tc, is not spinning


The filter for your empty pump is probably clogged. The machine can't drain the water in the alloted time because it is draining to slowly through the clogged filter. The machine won't start the spin cycle if all the water hasn't been evacuated. You will need to find and clean out your empty pump filter (Probably behind a little door at the bottom of the machine.

Daewoo DWCLD1013 washer & dryer The cycle keeps getting stuck on spin at around 10minutes, at which time it keeps going round and round with no actual fast spinning, until it stops about 20 minutes...


The cycle that the machine is stuck in is in fact the empty cycle, just before the spin kicks in. It is staying there because it has a problem evacuating all the water. The machine won't go into spin until all the water is gone and after a set time ( 20 minutes is unusually long, most machines stop after about 10,, but I'm not familiar with Daewoo), the attempt to empty is aborted and the machine stops.

Your problem therefore is either:

The filter for the empty pump is clogged with debris (far and away the most likely) you will need to locate and clean the filter

The EXIT to the drain is blocked, check the empty pipe is not blocked

The empty pump has failed (you would usually expect to hear the pump rumming, but it may not be a noise that you are familiar with).

First and second items are easy to fix, the 3rd is a pump replacement, which isn't that hard, but depends on your level of DIY skill

Hi, I own a Whirlpool Thin Twin Model# LT5000XSN1. I bought it used from a CRAPPY dealer (worst mistake EVER), since day one, we have had an issue with the spin cycle. The cycle will agitate then when the...


This sounds like a classic clogged empty pump issue. The empty cycle is timed and then it steps on to the spin cycle. The machine won't spin if there is still water in the bottom of the drum. When you reset it to a spin cycle again, you are making it run through the empty cycle again, finally getting rid of the water that the clogged filter could not evacuate on the first attempt.

You need to clean the empty pump filter. Now... Where is the filter???? Hmmmm... not sure. It MAY be behind a little panel in the front of the machine near the bottom. I can't find a picture of the machine on the net so I'm not sure.

Clean the filter, I'll bet your problem goes away. You have to wonder why the idiot who sold the machine to you hasn't suggested this!
