Will not spin

Our AWG329 front loader will not spin, I have managed to get it to do it once I have the back off it and the lid there are no loose wires. Sometimes the switch automatically moves to the spaaner symbol. Any ideas

Spin cycle not working

If it's a top loader, it can be the lid switch. If it's a front loader, that's usually more trouble, like a loose connection or some device is bad, a service call.

I have a samsung front loader washer model number we357a7w/xaa only 3 and a half years old that stopped draining water and making a funny noise. It wont even go on spin cycle. please advise?

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If your washer doesn't drain or spin, you may read and learn what parts may cause this. First, you will want to check your water pump. You need to make sure it is working. Make sure you check the belt on the pump. Make sure it is not broken or loose. Also, make sure your pulley is not stuck in place. Sometimes, they will stick or barely turn at all. If this is the case, you will need to replace it. If the pump, pulley, and belt are working, make sure your motor is working. You should be able to hear it if it is. If it isn't, check your lid switch. The lid switch can cause the motor to not work. It may need adjusted. If not, go ahead and change it. A bad lid switch may cause the washer to not work at all. Now, if your pump is pumping and the washer still won't spin, you will want to check your belt and clutch. Once again, the belt may be broke or loose. Check to make sure your clutch is not worn also. This may be a case of a bad lid switch again as well. You could have a bad drive motor. This is what controls spinning, draining, and agitation. You could have a broken motor coupler. Over time, they will go bad and need replaced. It is possible that your transmission is slipping or damaged. And lastly, you could have a bad basket drive ir spin bearing. This is what allows the inner tub to move. If this is the case, you will probably hear loud sounds or loud banging. This noise is heard in the spin cycle.

My top loader whirlpool washing machine (model SM8280869, I think) will not drain or spin. I have checked the inlet and drain hoses, they are not clogged or kinked, and the drain hose is about 12? above...

The switch needs to be secure and make sure that the wiring did not come off the back of the switch. On the back of the washer there should be two or three screws holding on metal brackets that keep the top and the rest of the washer together at the seam. Once removed you should be able to lift the top up and out enough to inspect, keep in mind that the rest of the wiring for the dials will be still connected. Hope this helps and dont forget to unplug first

My washer works but it will not work in the spin cycle

Every washing machine, top or front loader, has a safety feature that disables the spin functions and that is the lid switch/lock for top loaders and door switch/lock assembly for front loaders. This is to prevent injury when the lid/door is opened during a high speed spin. Check lid/door switch harness and connections. Replace lid/door switch assembly if no issue found with the harness and connections.

Water will fill into my Crosley front loader CW5000 but will not start washing, rinse, or spin

Sounds like you have a motor issue, listen when you press the start button, if you hear any squealing noises or any of the noises the system usually makes doesn't occur, then you probably have a motor issue, you may need to have your motor replaced

Kenmore top loader

Hi I see your having the washing machine won't spin problem. The first thing I would sugest is to disconect the AC power from the machine. The next step is to remove the front panel from the machine. Look at the top lid for a plastic tip that fits into a keyhole in frame. Underneath there there's a safty switch. This switch is designed to stop the machine from spinning if the lid is open. Sometimes the switch gets corroded over the years. It may have to be replaced or adjusted to align with the plastic tip whin the lid is closed. The black thing hanging down from the motor you described could just be some electrical tape the manufacture uses the bundle the wires from the motor. Some manufactures use a spring to keep the wires from the motor from interfering with any moving parts. Hope this helps.

Drain/Spin won't work unless lid is lifted up

Curdy, it almost sounds like your lid switch is loose or fractured and the lid actuator is not making the switch. Check this out first and post back...Catriver.

Spins when it feels like it

Popcorn, sounds like you are having trouble with the lid switch. The plastic housing in which the screws hold the switch to the cabinet may have cracked, or came loose. If the lid switch is not making correct contact the result is no spin, no drain. The switch actuator on the lid itself may need adjustment. The lid switch is mounted to the cabinet on the back right side under the consol. The lid switch part number is 8054980. But check the actuator first. back.
