My machine performed a hand wash and once cycle was complete I discovered I required to spin the garment further. On trying to do this the machine failed to operate and there seems to be a complete lack of power. I have changed the fuse, tested the socket and checked my trip switches in the garage. Nothing seems to be amis there. help! Thanks you

My washing machine top loader once reaches the spin cycle, with 21minutes time remaining, it goes back to rinse and repeats the cycle. What is the problem of my washer and how do I fix it? Thanks


If the washing is not distributed evenly by the time it reaches the rinse/spin cycle, it goes back to rinse cycle. Be present at the machine when it reaches the spin cycle. observe the drum to see if it is of balance and swaying to the sides, if so distribute washing evenly. Usually happens if there is a big garment or more with smaller items,

Regards

When I go and try to run the cleaning cycle, the machine will start to spin, then puts no water in and after about a minute en rL error is display. Some time the clean cycle will start with out a problem...


"rL" indicates a garment has been detected inside the wash tub. Garments are detected by weight. The wash tub must remain empty during a Clean Cycle. If you inspect the wash tub and it appears to be clear, inspect the area around the door bellow (rubber door seal) for loose items. It is common for small garments, such as socks and underwear to get lodged in the rubber folds. Pull back the folds around the door and inspect the perimeter of the seal. If you need further guidance please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Wt you mean by spin in washing machine



its a separate cycle all by itself.
Say U hand wash something in a sink and instead of wringing it out by hand U can put it in the washer and press this SPIN cycle.
So U can also use it to spin more water out of your garments after the regular wash and spin cycle.

Slower spin speeds mean -

  • Cheaper washing machines
  • Quieter washing machines
  • More stable washing machines
  • Longer lasting washing machines because there's less wear and tear on the bearings, motor, carbon brushes, suspension etc.*
  • Gentler on laundry
  • The drum spins for approx 4 or 5 mins. No water is added and you dont add detergent or fabric softener for the spin only option. The object of the exercise is to centrifugally remove excess water from the garments in the drum. They will still be damp but not sopping wet after the spin cycle
  • Spin takes the water out, extract is even better

My GE washing machine does not spin the water completely out of clothes. Garments come out very soggy and have to be wrung out by hand before putting them in the dryer. Any ideas?


My washer was pausing during the rinse cycle, sometimes leaving the clothes very wet as well. I pulled out the filter underneath the lower panel, it was packed with coins, etc. Has been running fine (draining) ever since. Hope this helps...

Whirlpool LSR7133KQ0 no pumpout, rinse, or spin.


NO...the problem you are describing are the typical symptoms of a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch shuts the washer off when you open the lid while the drum is spinning. This is a safety feature to prevent injury from moving parts if you decide to add a garment or stick your hands in the tub for some reason while it is in operation. On some model Whirpool's the washer WILL work initially for the wash cycle, then stop when it gets to the rinse cycle. I would recommend you check your lid switch to make it is not loose or broken. Your washer is also equipped with a lid strike (a small plastic piece on the lid that activates the switch) make sure it is not broken off or missing. This will give the same symptoms of a broken lid switch.

If you require a replacement switch, they can be ordered on line at searspartsdirect.com, or you can go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. The part number for the switch is 3949247. The lid strike (if required) is part number 358684. If you need instructions on how to replace the lid switch, you can use this link if you like:

I don't know how savvy you are, so I thought I would add the instructions just in case. I hope you find all this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

How long is the gentle cycle?. I prefer to make my own delicate cycle. I let the machine fill, agitate about 1 min. then turn off and let soak about 15 - 20 min. Make the machine pump out and start spin very briefly. stop machine. let fill up again and repeat to rinse. Don't let agitate for more than 3 or 4 min total wash and rinse don't let spin completely.
