Not spinning and making loud noise

Usually when the washer goes into spin cycle, it takes a little time to do so because it is trying to start a heavy load of wet clothes from standstill. As it speeds up, if the load is out of balance, it will start to wobble and then the off-balance switch is activated, shutting down the power to the motor and turning on an alarm momentarily. If this is close to what you are experiencing, try to realign the load so that the clothes are not bunched on one side of the drum - that is, distribute the load around the drum. You should be able to close the lid and press start to get it to try again. If this doesn't work, try removing most of the clothes, especially the heavy items, like jeans or sheets. You might be overloading the washer. Try it again.

Series 90 with loud buzzing/grinding noise, won't spin

It could have gone out of balance. See if the drum looks off center and center it if necessary. Turn it off and back on to reset the switch. If that doesn't work, try pressing on the lid either 2/3 of the way back on the right or all the way back on the left (depends on the model -- try both) and see if it starts. If it does, I would suspect the lid switch.

Guess you need to change the ,it links motor to the transmission.
There aren't enough clothes in the machine to keep the tub balanced. Wash bigger loads or lift the lid when the banging starts and re-space the clothes evenly around the tub .
Thanks for contacting

I need to know what the diognostic code F1 means on our new washers

Because it is a heavy duty machine, if you put too much clothes with a heavy rug in it, it will not be balance, as soon as your hear the loud noise, you have to stop it and reorganize your loading.
