Re: drum will not spin

If your water keeps flowing out, it could be that the pipe behind is not at the correct level, about three feet from ground level; your pump pumps the water out OVER this height. It should not be at ground level.

Is it normal for the washing machine to start and stop the spinning while the machine is in each cycle? Should it take over an hour to run one wash cycle?

Yes...they use less they start, tumble, then cycle again adding more water. I use the fastest setting on all my clothes which is 1/2 hour. It also does start and stop during spinning to tumble the clothes. It speeds up as it goes thru each stop till it spins real fast. All my clothes wash perfectly on fastest cycle.

I have a Whrilpool washer model LHW0050PQ 2. It will work perfectly then will not spin. At the end of the cycle the done light just flashes. If I choose to just choose spin cycle you will hear it go...

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.
Locate and clean the filter. There is a round unscrewable filter cover on the front of the machine at the bottom right, behind a small door. Many models of this design also have a small hose to the right of the filter cap that you can pull out, remove a plug from and drain off any water in the filter before you remove the filter its self and get your floor wet, so take a look for this before you remove the filter and get soaked.

If this IS the case, you need to call the repair guy out again and when he gets there, kick him all round the house until he gives you a refund foe his last 2 visits!

Washer fills and empties but won't wash or spin

If the motor is spinning very rapidly when it should just be tumbling then it sounds like the tacho has gone or come loose on the motor.It may well need a new motor or there could even be a fault with the main programmer

High speed drum rinse ..drum not spinning during rinse cycle

Clean out coin collector thoroughly. Replace drain pump if necessary. Water will drain if you can place drain hose on floor and let water siphon out.

Short water flow time

If it's new you should call for service. Ask the technician to turn the water level switch set screw so it will stop filling at a higher setpoint rather than stopping at the edge of the gray cylinder baffels.You are aware the factory water level switch is pre set for low level because of water restriction regulations for manufacturers.But that means nothing for me if my laundry is comming out still dirty.. Much later and after much research i turned the water level switch set screw under the lid clockwise a half turn to have my WM0642HW fill up to the lower door seal to tumble in some water.How it was set before resulted in terrible wash performance especially with full loads! Forget it! It was WICK washing instead of tumbling in some water.Since i made the adjustment on the water level sensor the washer is 100% better than before.Trust Me!

Hotpoint Aquarius wd440 washer/dryer wont pump out water HELP!

hold the start button for 5 seconds this should clear previous program. then select drain on your dial. press start as normal and machine will drain. if this does not work the only other remedy is with help, making sure the end of the drain hose is higher than drum at all times take machine outside, lean it back at 45 degrees agaist a wall with a towel or similar covering lid to stop scratching . working from underneath loosen the large jubillee clip that connects the drum to pump drain hose to the drum. As the drum is overfull there is no recepticle large enough to fit under so just let water just flow away. Dry every thing off. make sure you don't loose ping pong ball in filter and make sure filter is clear. refitting is reverse of removal

Won't spin clothes dry... possibly bad wiring??

Casa, make sure your model number starts with 417.43042 otherwise this post is trash. First have your husband drop the bottom panel and check the drain pump for debris, coins, etc. This model will not go into high spin if the pressure switch detects there is water in the tub. There was also a service flash out on this model regarding the timer not advancing. This had to do with electrical noise generated by the opening and closing of the timer contacts. This sent corrupt signals to the motor controller and the washer would stall in cycle. They corrected this problem by adding 3 jumpers to the motor controller. Part 134306000. My feeling is that you have a pump drain issue, but it's hard to tell without being back.
