Spin cycle isnt not working

Hi there,

The spin cycle is reliant on the drain pump removing water from the tub.

It is a common ocurrance of objects (ie hair pins, pegs, coins etc) to be mistakenly washed through the cycle. Washing machines will often flush these objects down through the drain pump, and get caught in the little propeller of the pump.

So, it is imperative that you inspect the drain pump first and remove any obstruction within the drain pump cavity.

Turn machine power OFF at the wall and remove the power plug.

i) place an empty bucket on the floor
ii) lower the drain HOSE into the bucket - gravity will cause the water to drain into the bucket. Empty the bucket. Perform this procedure until all water has been emptied from the bowl.
iii) move the washing machine out from the wall, to gain access to the drain pump (usually a large screwcap). Place a large towel on the floor, under the screwcap - this will catch any remaining water that escapes.
iv) unscrew the drain pump cap and withdraw the cap. This cap may also contain a filter, so remove any lint/objects from this filter.
v) with the pump cap/filter removed, look inside the pump cavity and remove any visible obstruction from the impellar (little propeller thing). Then, with your finger, turn the little impellar in both directions - if you feel a 'rubber band' like resistance, then the drain pump may be ok at this point.
vi) remove all wet clothes from the machine bowl.
vii) re-assemble the drain pump cap/filter and secure it in place. Install drain hose back into your laundry tub. Plug machine back into power.
viii) fill the bucket with water and pour water back into your machine's bowl. Repeat with a 2nd bucket of water.
ix) manually select and operate SPIN cycle on the machine. Observe if drain pump functions correctly and empties water from the bowl. If yes, then you have resolved the problem.

If your pump has been cleared of all obtstructions but your machine will still not empty water from the bowl, then a full diagnostic will need to be carried out by an authorised service agent to determine which component has failed.

Let me know how you get on.....

Good Luck..

I want to add a drainage tube to the unit so I don't have to keep emptying the collection container. How do you de-activiate the "full bucket " switch? I have the Kenmore Model #...

Roren, once the hose is properly installed, it's not necessary to deactivate the bucket switch. Unless, the tubing inside the hose connection is clogged, the water should drain through the hose. However, the hose should not be longer than 5 feet and should drain down and away from the unit. As the drainage relies entirely on gravity.

If you have already tried this and was unsuccessful, the hose connection drain is clogged. You can use an 18" plastic Zip Tie, inserted carefully into the drain hole connection to loosen the clog and remove it. But, you'll have to gingerly work it past a bend in the tunbe, until it either bottoms out or you run out of usable Zip Tie. Then while pulling it back out twist the Zip Tie to dislodge the clog. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow. Also, check the hose for clogs before connecting to the unit.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

What would make the washer not drain or spin?

Any of these two may work please try Instructions: Draining the machine 1) Locate the drainage hose, pump and filter. Check your owner's manual for the description. If you cannot access these items easily from the outside of your machine you may have to call a repair person.
2)Disconnect the drain hose. Make sure the end has been open (and cut) and that there is nothing plugging it. If the end is closed, cut the end off. Remove any blockage and let the water drain into the bucket. If the hose is not blocked, or your model washing machine does not feature a drainage hose, proceed to Step Three.
3)Check the pump and filter. In some models this resides behind a flap in the back of a washing machine. Locate a small drain hose and disconnect to drain the water. Hoses located in this manner may cause the water to drain slowly. If it drains only in small drops or not at all you may have to take apart the pump to find the blockage.
4)Bail out the water using a small bucket.
other alternate would be
Most likely it is the lid switch. And you can't always tell just by looking at it.

Next guess would be the timer having bad contacts.

If it wants to spin but don't or barely moves, then it's the coupling that needs to be replaced.

What causes the lid switch to go bad is slamming/dropping the lid down or setting something heavy on top of the washer.

The washer is supposed to pump out the water first, then start spinning. It won't do that if the lid switch is bad.

Hotpoint WMA76 - been on a normal wash cycle but wont spin to drain water - cycle finished, drum full of water and cant empty. How do we empty it to open machine?

Remove drain outlet hose from point where it discharges into waste pipe, and lay the hose down into a bucket or bowl, this should let the water syphon out, enabling you to open the door.

It isnt cleaning ot rinsing properly

Make sure the drain hose has a clear path. Also where the hose connects to your sink drain,if you pull off the hose to check the connection for a blockage have a empty bucket handy to catch the water. If the drainage path is totally clear and it still does not work right then the water pump is weak. I hope this helps you.

The washer will not drain or spin

more than likely the pump needs replacing, first of all remove the outlet drain hose from the the place it discharges and lower it into a bucket,this should allow it to syphon away,you may need to empyt the bucket a few times once the machine is empty you should be able to put it on its spin cycle once it has spun locate and remove the filter to remove any objects or lint, fill machine with warm water and try to drain and spin via the programme,if this do not work fit a new pump

Drain problem in GE WBSE2090A washer

hello, if you washer is not or isn't fully draining that sounds like something might be in the pump.Icheck for any hose blockage as well.If there is a bad smell that might be dirt or a peice of clothing or anything. so my suggestion is to check your drainage hose, the pump or maybe try even to syphan out the pump which means put the drainage hose in a bucket lower than the washer or your drainage is higher than the washer. good luck...
