The problem is isolated with the GENTLE/SLOW wash. The problem could be the rubber tub torque straps. But I'm not sure where it's exactly located in the washer. I would advise you to refer to the user manual of the washer.

I have a front loader washer Kenmore Elite Model #796.40311900 that spins SLOW, not FAST as it should on spin. The digital readout works normally.

sounds like maybe drain filter is plugged and unit is not draining fast enough. if you have drain access in front pull it out and clean it.

My washer skips the spin cycle sometimes i turn the dial to another spin cycle sometimes it works other times no

If you timer switch "skips" the spin cycle (passes through it faster than normal) then it is probably your timer switch.

Or it could be your transmission. The transmission is a two speed unit and the wash cycle is the slow speed and the spin cycle is the fast speed. So if the problem is only the spin cycle then it could be transmission problems. BUT since the transmission is normally a sealed unit on the newer machines you will have to replace the entire transmission instead of just the high speed gear.

I have a Hoover Zodiac12 2-speed reversible motor i want to use for a home project. Its a Nuova Ibmei with 5 terminals. The wires are L to R and top to bottom; 1. black stripe, 2. blue, 3. yellow, 4. red...

You will destroy the motor by running it with multiple speeds tied together. So be careful. Just try and get it to work with 2 wires and tape the others off away from each other and the frame so they won't short anything out. themobilian_795.jpg

My washer when it goes to spin the motor sounds like starts n stops starts n stops

Check your speed selector switch (fast/slow, fast/fast, normal/fast etc.)first and foremost! Make sure it not set in-between speeds.
If it is ok then my nest bet is that the switch itself is bad.
If your machine does not have a speed selector switch, I'm afraid you may have a bad motor.
Good luck!!

I have a GE clothes washer, model# WKRE6280D0WW, and the agitator has stopped working. It just spins freely in the drum. The wash setting has always been on normal/fast, but a few days ago, I set it to...

What you have is a bad drive block. Grab the agitator and snatch it off. The block is bolted to the tranny.
54b9ead.jpgWH43X10009 is the part number. Not very expensive nor hard to replace. the agitator snaps onto this block. The block is plastic andit has splines in it. they wear down smooth and cause the washer to do just what you describe.Read more

Kenmore Washing machine spins slow

If it has a speed selection switch than this switch is likely to be bad, other than that are you sure that It once has high spin in the cycle you are using??

Clothes wet, doesnt spin fast

Check the drain spigot, where the drain hose attaches to the drain trap under the sink/tub.There may be a blockage in the spigot which is causing the water to drain very slowly and therefor not allowing the machine to spin at normal fast speed.

Not spinning in high speed

possibly a faulty "off-balance" detector, but not sure...try to purposely make it go off balance during wash...maybe a few pairs of sneakers?
