How to reset the unbalance switches on mah3000aww

My washer went out of balance and now won't reach high spin speed on spin cycle, it will spins slow.

There appear to be three balance related buttons, a strut, a tub and an inertial switch, I have reached in to feel around and found only one button on the left side when facing the back of the machine.

Door locked and all other things appear to be working fine. Can you help this mom get the machine back to speed? I have lots of laundry building up in piles.

This sounds more like a motor control problem. You need to open the control panel and find the service sheet. This sheet will tell you how to run diagnostics and other tests on the machine.

My maytag neptune mah3000aww spins slowly then reverses, then spins slowly. will not reach regular spinning speed. What is the problem?

it could be a balance problem. Most machines are programmed to abort fast spin if the drum is unbalanced. This can be caused by too much in there, or possible the contents have clumped together somehow. Try a spin cycle only with an empty machine and see if it reaches full spin

Kenmore washer won't fast spin

On most modern Washing Machines there will be an engineers program. To get into it there will be a key or button press combination.
You should be able to reset and control functions from there.

Google your Model with Engineer Program etc.

We have a list of many Service Manuals at: (More added everyday)

The machine begins just fine half way through a cycle it stops. Sometimes it runs with no problem. One time we got a code of (UE) I think not sure.

UE = Unbalance Error. For bulky loads, use a lower spin speed. For regular cycles, use a larger amount of clothing per load, and / or a lower spin speed. You can load the drum with dry clothing up to the point where you are just able to reach your arm in to touch the back of the drum. Very small loads can cause more frequent off balance situations.

LG Tromm washer wont spin through the spin cycle and reads error ue. I have tried to balance the load several times and still get the same error.

This error generally happens when people try to run a bulky load, like a coat, rug, pillow, etc., using a high speed spin. For these loads, choose the low speed spin. After the cycle completes, if you think the clothes are too wet, power up the machine again but instead of choosing a cycle, just push the spin speed button until it shows the next higher spin speed (usually about 14 minutes will show on the display) and push start. The machine will usually be able to get to a faster speed now, as the clothes have some of the water spun out of them from the earlier low speed spin, allowing the machine to reach a higher spin speed without the Unbalance Error code showing up. Of course, you want to make sure the machine is on a solid floor with all the legs adjusted properly also.

Screen reads UE? what is UE?

UE stands for Unbalance Error. If the washer has tried to spin numerous times, tried to redistribute the load itself between each attempt, and still not been able to get the load up to full speed without experiencing an off balance condition, it will finally stop and display the UE code. This is most often the case when a heavy / bulky item(s) are being washed and the spin speed is set very high. When washing these items, set the spin speed to low. The machine will most likely be able to handle that. If you want them spun out faster, then AFTER the washer has made it through the cycle on low speed spin do this: Turn the power back on. Without selecting any cycle, just press the spin speed button, selecting the next higher spin speed. Now press start, and your washer will just do a 14 minute or so pump and spin.
For super wet heavy loads, if you cannot even get the washer to go through a cycle on the lowest spin speed, you may have to wring a bunch of the water out of the clothes by hand before doing the 14 minute cycle thing.

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.

Kenmore 22622 will not shift into high speed during spin cycle leaving clothes very wet every now and then it will go to high speed. i tried turning the dial around a couple of times and it went into high...

Possible overloading or a situation many people do not consider is underloading ,if your machine has an out of balance sensor this will operate in either event and hold the spin to protect your machine .

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.
