Try the "spin only" button to take the water out of your machine. If this does not work, take the pipe from the wall socket and lay it on the floor for the water to spill out. The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; if the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub (plug off the wall first before doing all these things). Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.
The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground.

The spin dry of the above mentioned washing machine spin dry not working properly cuts off what parts are required to fix this ?.


If a machine is out of balance when spinning it will shut down---there's an unbalance switch that controls this---also on some machines if not properly set level or feet not touching the floor causing the machine to rock---it will shut down---the remedy for that is to redistribute the clothes then is should resume spinning----another issue could be the timer----out of sequence or jumping ahead during that cycle---has the timer/control ever been wet as this will cause some issues---this is my thoughts on this--good luck

My frigidaire front load washer will start a wash, complete the first cycle but then stop and flash all the lights and beep continously until I press "start" or "cancel". If I press "start" again it just...


Hello there:
If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle should advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. than check the cold water supply line and the filter

WHDSR209DWW on/off button will not engage to spin the cycle selector dial


The cycle selector is not engaged onto the timer shaft. Need to remove the on/off knob by removing the plastic "U" clip. Remove the cycle selctor knob and check that the steel spring clip on the selector is fully seated. Re-install the cycle selector onto the timer shaft aligning the selector key with the with tthe notch on the timer shaft. Re-install the on/off knob.

The cycle selector and on/off combination is a poor design. Users press the on/off knob in and turn clockwise to set the wash cycle. If you're not gentle this action wears the teeth on the timer shaft and the user has to press harder and harder to set the wash cycle. This pressing causes the cycle selector to be pushed off the timer shaft and you can no longer operate the machine.

VERY IMPORTANT:
Stop using the on/off knob to set the wash cycle. Press on the cycle selector to set the wash cycle. Use the on/off knob only for starting or stopping the machine. Don't press or pull too hard on the on/off knob or you will wind up pushing the cycle selector off the timer shaft.

Kitchenaid washing machine not spinning


WHEN YOUR WASHING THE LID MUST BE SHUT BEFORE IT WILL GO INTO THE SPIN CYCLE. UNDER THE LID YOU WILL SEE A PROBE THE PUSHES THE SWITCH DOWN WHEN THE LID IS SHUT. THESE SWITCHES WEAR OUT , ONE THING TO TRY WHEN THE WASHER TRIES TO GO ONTO SPIN TAKE A NON MATALIC ITEM AND PUSH THE SWITCH DOWN AND SEE IF THE WASHER GOES INTO THE SPIN CYCLE, IF IT DOES THE SWITCH IS NOT BEING PUSHED DOWN FAR ENOUGH TO MAKE THE SWITCH WORK
THIS IS VERY COMMON ON ALL WASHERS

Keeps filling up even when full for over 4 hours (never changed cycles)


The timer sends a signal to the water level control valve. This valve serves two primary purposes. 1. Activate the water valve to fill the machine. 2. Shut the water flow down and allow the machine to operate. Try running the machine again. If the water continues to enter the machine after it begins aggitating then shut the water off at the spigot. Now watch and see if the timer moves or not.

If the timer does not move at all then I would replace the timer. If it DOES move then another problem exists and will need to be addressed.
