SOURCE: Doesn't spin the clothes dry on the final spin but spins at high revolutions without a load of clothes

I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....

I want to place wet clothes in the washer and just spin them without washing them


sounds like you have a door lock problem, maybe the wax motor is not working properly of the spin switch is bad. You may have a problem with the motor controller also. Kind of hard to tell you how to trouble shoot on internet, unless you just want to replace parts till it works, call for service.

Machine only hums, will not spin, wash nor will the door open.


  • It sounds like the motor is spinning, but the drum is not spinning. This usually means the belt has broken, or come off of the pulley.
  • Not pumping out the water - if the washer cannot pump out the water, the washer will not be able to spin...check the pump for not pumping.
  • Door not locking - if the door will not lock, the washer will not enter a spin mode. See if the lock light is lite on the console.
  • Broken wires at one of the out off balance switches or a bad switch itself.
  • A fairly common trouble maker has been a burnt diode on the main control board.

Maytag's Neptune washer has a latch and lock on the door. If this lock fails to open when the cycle is finished. You can rescue your clothes by:
  1. Remove the bezel from the soap/bleach/fabric softener dispenser.
  2. Locate the red cord near the right front corner of the dispenser opening. Pull on this red cord. This will unlatch the door so you can rescue your laundry. Then call for service.

Washer not draining


Probably the pump filter needs cleaning.
It should be located at the bottom front of washer behind drop down cover, turn anti-clockwise to remove and clean.

Slow spin clothes are still wet, spins better on medium spin cycle than the fast cycle. Is this a bad speed control unit?


Actually, it could and probably is your door switch! If the door switch doesn't "tell" the control board that the door is not closed, the washer will not spin out your clothes. And when they go bad, that's exactly what defective door switches do. Order the switch first. Then take off the top lid by removing the two screws in back of the lid itself. Then, open the door, remove the two screws holding the door switch from the front of the washer. Pull it up and pay careful attention to how it is wired. Connect the wires to the new unit from the old one by one and reinstall. I bet it will spin!

My hotpoint few10 washing machine wont work,it wont come on at all and none of the lights at the front come on


On some front load clothes washers, the door has a safety interlock switch that prevents the washer from operating if the door is not fully closed (or the door / safety interlock switch is not aligned or broken.)

I would check that first. Please report back, OK?

GE Front Loader Washer - Not washing


It sound like a lid switch issue. If the lid switch is defective, your washer 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 washer to get to the switch. Look that the switch is not broken or loose. If all is fine, you should replace the switch. Good luck!
