Washer won't spin. This is a new problem this evening. With a load in the washer the normal high speed (or any other speed) spin is not working. We've checked the load - which is OK. Suggestions?

Washer won't spin on spin cycle but spins during other cyles


Hello rylee1966 - From what you are describing, it sounds like the washer agitates, but it will not enter a high speed spin. If that is correct, more than likely there is a door switch failure. I will personally recommend contacting a professional to move forward accurately and to assist with the repair(s).

Drum is making a loud banging noise during spin, it is brand new


Some banging or knocking during the ramp up to spin speed in this washer is normal. It is difficult to determine whether your washer has a problem or not based on your description. This banging lasts for varying amounts of time until the load is balanced and the washer ramps up to the full spin speed. If the load can not be balanced on the first attempt, the washer will ramp down and then tumble and attempt again to ramp up to speed. This may be the same thing that you are hearing when your washer ramps up to spin speed. Since the washer does spin at the full speed, there is not likely a problem with the washer. The components are designed to withstand repeated vibration and reasonable banging or knocking. The washer will vibrate to some extent at high speed. If you feel that the vibration is excessive, I recommend that you check the stability of the leveling feet. Press down on the diagonally opposing corners of the washer to check for play. If the washer rocks at all when conducting this test, I recommend that you adjust the leveling feet to eliminate this play even is the washer is not perfectly level after making this adjustment. This may help reduce the banging and vibration. Other than that if it is brand new call the people who you purchased it from so you don't void any warranties by taking it apart.

Good evening, My Roper washer RAX4232PQ0 will not spin...it seems to drain OK but won't spin...can you offer any help? Thanks!


I am thinking if all works good except won't spin, it is your lid switch. Under your washer lid you will notice a peg of some sort that when lidnis closed goes into a slot/hole and that triggers the spin cycle. That is in lamens terms know as a safety idiot switch. It is designed so when the washer is spinning at those high speeds,na child or not to smart adult does not open lid and put hand in while spinning. SO, if switch goes out, of course it won't spin. Switch is cheap , under 20 bucks at any appliance parts store, and they even can tell you at store how to putnin yourself by showing on one of there washers on display. Let me know if I nailed it!! Thanks Mike

Brand new. Load gets stuck on 14 minutes or some other time & repeats over & over. Wont finish cycle. We have to use the drain & spin to get the water out but then clothes are not rinsed well....


Sounds like you are probably doing a very bulky or real off balance load on a high spin speed setting. The washer is trying to get the load up to spin speed, but the load is too off balanced. Try the lowest spin speed setting for that load. If it makes it through that, then power machine back on and just push the spin speed button until the next higher speed shows up, and then the start button if you want to spin it out better. If it still didn't make it through the original cycle on the lowest spin speed, your load must be way too off balanced, like one coat that is saturated with water. If that is the case, you may even have to squeeze some water out of it by hand before you would be able to get the washer to get it up to spin speed.

GE WHDRR418 top load washer won't spin at high speed; the washer does the complete cycle, and agitates in both directions and does physically spin, but it will not go into the 'high speed' spin that...


we can eliminate the motor and the switch since that part is working. sound like your timer might be faulty, timer make everything work in persistence cycles, if its goes bad sometime it tend to jump/skip cycles.
