Just make out the following checks before calling a repairman.
1)A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses
for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a
hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be
straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked,
check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to
remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through
the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean
up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected.
Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The
washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the
2)If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not
closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place.
Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the
lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound,
then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's
directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the
way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to
bend it back into place.
3)Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the
pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the
voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is
getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is
running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to
remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one.
Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will
now drain and spin.
If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains
or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman.
