Probably nothing as there is a brake application to the drum to stop the spinning action --same as it it is spinning and you open the lid.
it is solenoid applied
check the tub support arms for good insulators because if they are worn that may make the sound worse

The load might be unbalanced, and will not spin at full speed as it could damage the machine. Try reloading the machine

These machines have a common fault. If yours has no visible filter, the filter is in the rubber waste tube, just below the drum.
Most faults on these machines are due to a blockage or build up of sludge and lime scale in this area.
This also affects the pressure switch, which is linked by a plastic tube to the same place! This will cause the machine to stick, and not spin, otr to spin with water in the drum causing vibration.
Firstly check the outlet hose and the plumbing where the outlet goes to for signs of sludge and lime. Unless you have very soft water or a water softener, there will be some! Usually lots!
Clean this out.
Disconnect the machine from the mains and the water supply and pull it into a clear area.
Put a thick cloth on the floor and gently lay the machine on its left hand side, looking from the rear,
Undo the small panel on the back and you will see the black rubber concertina hose, pressure chamber and pump, which are now all easily accessible from the rear and the botom of the machine.
Undo the circlips with a screwdriver and the special plastic clips with a pair of pliers by twisting each part in the opposite direction.
Take the whole hose off. You find a filter and a "ping pong ball" inside this.
Clean it all out as thoroughly as you can. At the same time clean out the plastic pressure chamber and the pump. you might need to use a proprietary limescale remover or vinegar to do this.
You will usually find a few buttons, plastic items, paper, couins and a load of sludge!
Put the whole lot back, The plastic clips slide together with a toothed grip.
The whole job should take about half an hour and the machine will be like new.

After disconnecting the mains open up behind, it could be a shock absorber (damper) which is broken. (which is good)

My washing machine spins but does not drain, what could cause this?

If the machine is spinning as hard and fast as it should.... then I can only think that you have a problem with a plugged drain pipe.. (The one that the big hose in the back of the washer slips into.) If so, you'd need a plumber to help. Now, I'm assuming that you already know that if you end up having a severely unbalanced load, that it will kick out of the spin cycle prematurely, so that it won't shake itself to death... That would leave water in the machine.

My washing machine hitachi make model no SF-70EJ having problem with spin please give assistance what to do


Most spin problems are consequence of drain system faults.

The first part to check is drain system. Check the drain hose at the back and the drain filter attached to the pump. See article at the end for more detail.

Most machines' timer boards do an additional check on the lid switch before starting the spin part of the cycle. If the lid lock light is flashing and the machine does not spin the lid switch is probably defective.

The lid switch is tested jumping its contacts or reading Ohms at switch terminal. A two-terminals switch must read continuity (low impedance) when door is closed and must read open (infinity of Ohms) when door is open. If the switch is a three contacts, the third contact is called "heater". In that case there must be continuity between the three contacts with lid closed. If the model instead of a simple switch uses a wax motor, then the lock cannot be tested by jumping contacts. The lock motor must be tested reading Ohms and checking that impedance is the same as indicated in service manual.

If lid switch and drain system are OK, then the pressure switch must be tested.The pressure switch detects the water level and among other things determines when to advance the cycle to spin.

If all the above is OK, then the motor and motor control unit (if present) must be tested.

Please read the solution in the article below for more:

If you have no spin ...

Washing machine agitator not working, and will not fully drain.

There are many reasons that this may happen. depending on the machine. It could be the motor, belt, clutch, or gear. Does it spin? If it does, the motor is probably good. Hope this helps.

Good ratings are important to us, please be fair..

My wnse4200 makes a clunking sound when in the spin cycle and I can stop the drum by hand

you may gave a broken pump. or a bad centrifugal switch. turn the washer on its side(unplug it first of cours) underneath the washer you will see a pump attached to the motor. remove the pump by realeasing the two long clips in there and see if a foriegn object is lodge in there. a problem with the centrifugal switch will require replacing the whole motor.This could also be a problem with the drive gears.
