SOURCE: front loader wont spin

Hello there:
It doesn't spin If your washer won't spin, check these: If the motor is running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it. A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it. The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle.

SOURCE: My samsung front loader washing machine gets stuck

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It could be that it will not fill because it has not drained completely.
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If your washer doesn't drain or spin, you may read and learn what parts may cause this. First, you will want to check your water pump. You need to make sure it is working. Make sure you check the belt on the pump. Make sure it is not broken or loose. Also, make sure your pulley is not stuck in place. Sometimes, they will stick or barely turn at all. If this is the case, you will need to replace it. If the pump, pulley, and belt are working, make sure your motor is working. You should be able to hear it if it is. If it isn't, check your lid switch. The lid switch can cause the motor to not work. It may need adjusted. If not, go ahead and change it. A bad lid switch may cause the washer to not work at all. Now, if your pump is pumping and the washer still won't spin, you will want to check your belt and clutch. Once again, the belt may be broke or loose. Check to make sure your clutch is not worn also. This may be a case of a bad lid switch again as well. You could have a bad drive motor. This is what controls spinning, draining, and agitation. You could have a broken motor coupler. Over time, they will go bad and need replaced. It is possible that your transmission is slipping or damaged. And lastly, you could have a bad basket drive ir spin bearing. This is what allows the inner tub to move. If this is the case, you will probably hear loud sounds or loud banging. This noise is heard in the spin cycle.

SOURCE: I have a Samsung washer front loader it vibrates really bad when it is on spin cycle model #wf409anw/xaa

To test whether the problem is caused by a fault in the machine, or the way it's being used, run it through a complete empty cycle. No clothes, no detergent.

If it still vibrates under those conditions, call a repairman. If not, then the cause is an unbalanced load. This often happens when dis-similar weight articles are placed in the washer at the same time - such as bath towels along with tee shirts, etc.

My front loader works fine and will spin BUT it will not do the fast final spin cycle in the end to draw water out of the clothes. It shows that it has 11 min. left, does a slow spin right, a slow sp


Hey friend, thanks for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire washer will not spin on the final cycle. You could be having an issue with your motor or control panel. It is possible that the control panel is not sending the required information to your motor in order to process the spin cycle. Or it could be that the motor is not receiving the signal from your control panel to spin.

I would recommend performing a reset on your appliance which you can do by unplugging the power cord or flipping the circuit breaker for ten minutes. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

THE MACHINE RUNS VERY WELL QUIET UNTIL THE FINAL SPIN CYCLE THEN FROM THE BACK OF THE MACHINE THERE IS A SQUEAL THAT GETS LOADER AS THE SPEED PICKS UP


This may well be the drum drive belt in the back of the washing machine. This belt transfers drive from the motor to the drum for both wash cycles and spinning. If the belt is slipping slightly on the pulley then a squeal may well be heard on the spin cycle and will change in pitch as the speed of the drum increases. At lower speeds (wash cycles) the belt probably won't slip. I don't personally know of this model but there is usually a tension adjustment nut/bolt near the motor to tighten the belt and stop it slipping.

lefever352, I am currently trying to solve this same issue on the identical model. I removed , cleaned, and re-assembled all the water tubes and the entire pump assembly. The pump works but for some reason it is not priming into the drain tube. The pump assembly appears to have a diaphram over the outlet opening and it it looks like this might be the problem. I am still hunting the solution, BUT so far the above actions have to resolve our issue. I hope perhaps Fixya can help.

Since it can spin by selector then there is no problem with the spinning mechanism. Need to call warranty service to address the electronic sensor control.

WF218ANB noise like a bag of rocks being shaken.


This is a direct result of Samsung's Vibration Reduction Technology(VRT). There is a hoop at the front and the back of the drum holding 18 ball berrings in each hoop (36 in total). These balls use centrifugal force and automatically move to the opposite side of where the load is unbalanced and balances it out. It is only in the washing machines, not dryers.
