Look under the machine you will find either the drive belt has come off or the drive coupler is broken, you will need to remove the back panel to see these problems.

Drum barely spinning, maybe the belt is worn?


Is it just the spin cycle or all the way through?
Could be worn or loose or both. Does it spin without a load in the manchine. Do you hear the motor running at a higher pitch than normal (means it's running without any load to it) or does it sound the same? Worse senario, If the motor is an "Indution Motor" then a coil may have gone o/c. If it is a brush motor (if you hear sparking)could need new brushes

Kenmore washing machine model 20712990 wont spin


If you don't hear a click when you close lid, replace lid switch. If when in spin, you hear motor but does not spin, replace motor coupler.

Dryer will not spin, but can you hear the motor start when the button is pushed? If you hear the motor then the belt is probably broken. If you cannot hear the motor, then open the lid and check to see if there is a belt in place. A second cause for not dryers spinning are misaligned door switches. Shut the door and if it does not spin. Carefully hold the door switch closed by hand and see if does spin (for a second). This test will show that the door switch is working, but that the door is not closing the switch and that is it probably misaligned.

Will not spin hear it spinning but tub does not spin


If you are hearing the motor spin but the tub doesn't, then the motor coupling is bad. The coupling goes between the motor and transmission and enables the transmission to spin or agitate. You're going to have to open up the machine so you can access the motor. Then you will have to disconnect the motor and you will see the coupling.

My maytag atlantis washer purchased in 2002 would not spin on the colors spin cycle. I turned the control completely around to the spin cycle and tried again and it didn't work. I also set it on the spin...


Jim, I would be looking at the lid switch assembly. Try to press down on the lid in the very front edge. IF the switch is going out of tolerance, the added pressure will activate the switch and allow the machine to spin. If it were a transmission problem, you would hear the motor. (I'm assuming you are not hearing the motor).
If you are hearing the motor run, check the motor slides to make sure they are not rusted and the motor is able to pivot back and forth freely.
Let me know if you have any other questions on this!!

The machine will not spin for the spin cycle.


It could be the belt is broken or the motor is bad. check to see if you hear any noise when the machine is in cycle ,if you hear the motor is spinning that means you have a broken belt. Hop this information could help you.

Disk is not spinning in emerson portable dvd


if the disc doesn't spin, it sounds like a bad motor. can you hear the laser adjust? if you do, then it's probably a dead motor, if you can't hear that laser adjust at all, and the motor doesn't spin at all, the connection might have come undone(they both share a connection)
