If the unit will pump, but not spin, check out the following:

* Door latch switch- inside the washer main housing near the door frame. Check switch with an ohm meter to determine if it is good or bad.

* Belts

* The drive motor.

*The spin bearing or basket drive may be seized.

The most likely problem is the door switch. Hope this helped. Good luck.

Did you just wash or a few loads ago wash an area rug or something with a lot of debris? If so, there is a filter just before the pump. You will see a rubber hose/housing for the filter. Take off the hose clamps and clean out the filter and put all back together. The hose clamps are a bit of a pain to get off and on but should work perfect after that.

LG Washing Machine Model : WD658 When using the function "Rinse & Spin", the timer decreases when rinsing. However, the timer decreases and stops at 9 minutes. This results the machine...

Try setting a lower spin speed. You may have a bulky load which the washer is having a difficult time getting up to the high speed spin you have selected. Also, did you know that on most LG washers, you can do just a spin without a rinse? Just turn the washer power on, then, without selecting a cycle, just push the spin speed selector to select the spin speed desired. This should set the cycle for about a 12 to 14 minutes pump and spin only. Then push start. You can spin that bulky load at the lowest spin, then try it again at the next faster spin if needed, without adding rinse water.

You will need to type into your search engine 'maytag centennial washer manual' and you should be presented by a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay.

I hope you will be able to obtain one with the instructions you require without having to pay someone to do the repairs!

Washer will not spin out in rinse cycle. belt needs replacing. where can I get an owners manual for free.

go to google and type in "free owners manual for...." and put the make and model of your washer in there.
Are you sure it is the belt that is the problem? It could also be the lid switch. If the lid switch is bad the washer will act as if the lid is open and wont spin.

After a wash cycle, the letters UE appeared in the timer window..

UE = Unbalance error.
try to use a low spin speed with loads like rugs, and try to get as even a load as possible. (ie: not just one rug) Don't wash rubber backed rugs, as the backing can break up and clog your machine.

Now, if you are successful washing with the lowest spin speed, you can hold the " Spin Speed " button in while pressing on the power button. Release power button. Now release the spin speed button. Now, press the spin speed button until the next higher spin speed from your last successful spin. Press start. Your washer should now pump out and attempt to reach the new spin speed, without adding any water. (usually about a 14 minute pump and spin cycle) Don't expect to be able to spin out rugs at a high spin speed.

Frigidaire (gallery series) err problem

ck to see that a control lock light is not illuminated, as far as fisher and paykel pressure swithc is part of motor controller under main console. removing screws behind console allows you access and from ther i would remove clear plastic tubing from right side of control and blow down the line (sometimes detergent will block other end not allowing proper readings)
