SOURCE: Washing machine will not complete spin cycle

OK, what you are experiencing is a timer mechanism fault. the timer motor is malfunctioning. anytime you have to manually advance the timer knob, this will signal a fault within the control mech. this is easily fixed by, replacing the timer control module. i will place a link to the actual part needed to fix this issue. you can also purchase this timer on line at this site if you wish.

Ok, turn the washing machine off and unplud. Open the flap at the bottom left of the machine. Put a bucket underneath it. Unscrew the cap. Water will pour out - lots of it and very quickly - so make sure you have a bucket underneath it and lots of towels round that.
Once the water has drained out, check there are no blockages in there. You may find that some coins or buttons flush out with the water. That will be your problem.
Once clear, screw the plug back in and turn on machine.

I have a new (had it two weeks) GHW9150HP and now the clothes are soaked like they did not go through the spin cycle. The washer also seems do not be level since is vibrates so mch that is 'wonders'...


As far as the vibration goes, check to make sure that the machine is leveled. Also check to make sure that the shipping bolts have been removed. On every spin cycle, the machine goes the a process to check if it is balanced or not. If the machine senses that it is unbalanced, it will stop the cycle. So that could be why your clothes are coming out soaked. try this solution first, if the problem continues, let me know and we can try a different solution, perhaps putting your machine in diagnostic mode.

My clothes are still very wet even after cycle is finished. It is like they are not fully spinning out, even when I select to do an additional spin cycle. Does anyone know why?


I'm an owner as you and do all my repair on multiple FAV6800A machines.

I don't feel from the info supplied that you have a drain pump/drain line issue because you do not take a "ND" error code for "no drain" during the wash cycle.....the wash cycle completes. I don't believe you have a stuck slightly open water inlet valve in the machine because I feel the machine would eventually over fill and flood the laundry area in time.

Is there any standing water in the wash basket when you remove the wet clothes after the final Spin Cycle?

I would place the machine in Service Mode and run it thru a Quick Spin Test (with a wet load) and record the fastest RPM speed the wash basket will spin up to.

You need the Service Manual to help you get into Service Mode to do the test. Are you going to DIY or call in repair service?

If you want to run the Quick Spin test I will look for a previous post on this forum where I called out the process steps.

Dark greasy stains after washing


When the seal starts to fail, this oil floats up into the wash water
in the form of small black drops. The stains are almost impossible
to remove from clothing. Also, as the oil is leaking up, hot soapy
water is leaking down into the transmission, which will eventually
cause it to fail.

The seal wont be difficult to replace,but to get access to it you have to
basically disassemble the whole machine. The hardest part was pulling the agitator off the shaft - I
use a slide hammer puller. I'd start by pulling the agitator off and
see if you can access the transmission seal that way - perhaps yours
will be easier than mine was.

Grease-like stains on clothing


hi. i can help. the grease is coming from one of two places. Either some item with grease on it got placed in the machine and the grease transferred to the tub where it will cause the problem until it is spotted and removed with a degreaser, or wears off.

OR the grease is coming from the washer itself. Perhaps some grease oozed out of the mechanicals related to the aggitator.

Either way I would get a strong flash light or trouble light and look carefully in the tub and around the aggitator for grease. Then remove it with a cloth and some degreaser, available at any auto parts store.

I suggest that you check the brushes in the motor for wear.
Remove rear panel, remove drive belt, undo bolts securing motor, unplug motor lead and earth wire.
Lever motor back, keeping hold of it, and remove.
Check the brushes, they are at the opp end to the motor pulley, if there is less than 8mm left, then replace brushes.
I would also check the pump filter, and clean if req'd.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

Whirlpool calypso GVW9959Q - Black stains on whites


At the end of the cycle, the wash plate nutates for
approximately 30 seconds to fluff the clothing after the
final spin. The action of fluffing causes the outer wash
plate seal to rub against the stainless steel basket while
they are both relatively dry. This condition causes the gray
discoloration.
RESOLUTION:
An updated machine control, part number 8542693, is
now available. The updated control reduces the fluff time
from 30 seconds to 8 seconds, allowing the clothing to be
fluffed, without causing discoloration.
Gray marks or smudges can be washed out of clothing
after wiping down the basket. The consumer should use
the recommended amount of HE detergent and the hottest
water safe for the fabric or hand wash the garment under
running water. In either case, the fabric must be cleaned
prior to running through the dryer
