I think that during all the rocking the lid switch has come off or broken. If you lift the lid look in the recess where the lid goes on top. There will be a small slot, if you press down on this slot with a screwdriver or something, it should make a clicking noise. Also check the lid and there should be a short prong that presses down this switch when the lid is shut. If the prong is missing or there is no clicking noise when pressed. The little clip that holds the switch has come off. This is a safety switch that protects people from the spin cycle when the lid is opened. If you are capable, remove the top panel on the washer, locate the bracket and switch. This is a small rectangular part with a button on the middle, with 1 wire attached to each end. Unplug the power, remove these 2 wires from the switch and connect them together. make sure everything is safe and plug the cord back in, turn the timer control to spin. If it spins, that it. Also, if it has an anti out of balance switch that is not working, you need to locate that too, while you have this apart. Check the literature that came with the washer to be sure it has this feature. Locate it on the machine and just replace it. Testing it may be hard to confirm. You will need a meter and may be some type of mercury switch inside. Did leveling the feet help the shaking?

First check to make sure there is nothing sticking through the holes in the basket keeping the tub from turning. (screws, nails, etc)
Next, tilt the machine back and turn the large pulley by hand. If you turn it one direction it will agitate, turn it the other direction and it should release the brake and spin the basket.
As you turn it the direction that releases the brake, you should see the brake just above the pulley raise up. If it is not pushing the brake up, you probably need a new pulley assembly.
If the brake release on the pulley is ok, the brake liner may have come apart and the brake will have to be replaced.
Post back with any questions. You can go to sears.com, click on parts, enter your model number and look at parts diagrams to get a better idea of how it is put together.
Thanks/Mike

    If the pump is draining the water, the lid switch is ok.

    As for the balance problem, raise the top of the machine and remove the three styrofoam pads glued to the sides of the cabinet. If you still have a problem, there is a base kit Maytag made available in Sept '05 to fix this problem. PRT# 12002701

    This includes a new machine base, new snubber, and new springs.

    Let me know what you find out about the spinning problem. The most common part to cause this is the pulley/thrust bearing assy.

    Thanks/mike

My zanussi washer dryer has some problem When i set a program and lets say the program is 125 min it finishes after 40 min and it is not spining.Also when I try different programs I have the same problem


check the drain filter is not blocked if it does not empty all the water it saves time on the next fill. also the spin will not happen if it has not emptied completley. a faulty pump would give the same effect.

Not spining- water standing can't get water to


If your washer is not spinning ! You first need to drain it. Then underneath your washer you will find your drive system. It will consist of drive belt, drive pulley or pullies and motor. Belt could have come off , if so check the condition before reinstalling, also some times from overloading the belt will spin on the pulley which will make it hot and thanks to the manufacturer the pulley is likely plastic. Parts supply shops best source for belts and possibly pulley though sometimes they want to sale you the whole motor with pulley which you don't need. If so uae internet to find your pulley probably under 10.00 dollars. Hope this helps.

GE washer not spine


First thing you can due is to manually move the time to drain and spin mode. This will check your timer to see if your timer is working. If it start working then it is your timer. It will be your timer gone bad.

drain pump is jammed (you can manually try and turn it backwards first then forwards to unjam junk that may be stuck in it) it should turn freely ...less likely is the timer depending on how old it is.

Maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW will not drain all the water out.


If you are saying that after the washer has finished you are left with wet cloths and water left standing in the tub ,then your pump is broken or as was my case I opened the back and removed the pump only to find a small piece of wicker that had come off my laundry basket . It was keeping the pump from turning .I removed it put everything back in place and saved over $380.00 . I hope this helps good luck .

Hotpoint Dishwasher


have you tried adjusting the feet on the front of the washer so it is tilted back slightly .This will stop the water from coming over the little lip on the front of the machine. Some dishwashers also use a little amount of water in the bottom when drying asthis helps to curculate the heat ; leave the washer to complete it's cycle and it should beep to let you know when it is finished
