I have a Samsung top loader and even after leveling correctly as the spin cycle begins to spin faster, after the speed number nine the drum begins to bang all over the place then stop spinning. What c


You have an unbalanced load. This can be due to the amount of items in the drum or the type of items in the drum. Redistribute the items in the drum and restart. If this happens continually, you may have a problem with the drum dampening mechanism.

Whirlpool washer wet after spin cycle


Hello.

1 Measure your drainpipe to make sure it is no taller than 96 inches in height and no shorter than 30 inches; otherwise, it won't pump enough water from the washer, or the water may flow back to the washer.

2 Look at the dial selection to make sure you have selected the proper spin speed for the material you are washing. Choose the highest spin speed for that particular material. If you choose the "no spin" or "low spin" option, your whirlpool washer might not remove all of the water from your clothes.

3 Check if you have chosen the appropriate wash cycle for the type of material you are washing. The whirlpool washing machine drains quite a bit more slowly on the "Delicate" and "Hand Wash" cycles.

4 Check for excessive soap suds accumulating in the washing machine. whirlpool recommends you use only high-efficiency detergent in whirlpool washers. Other detergents can cause excessive soap suds, which could cause the washing machine to operate at a slower spin speed than selected, resulting in sopping wet clothes.

5 Add more clothing items to the washing load. If you wash only one large item, like a coat or blanket, the washer might become unbalanced and react by lowering the spin speed, causing the machine to not drain as it should during the spin cycle.

6 Examine your drain hose for clogs or kinks. Straighten the hose out to allow water to flow through. Eliminate blockage in the drainpipe or utility sink.

Thanks.

I have a LG WM1814CW front load washer. I get UE when it trys to go on spin cycle. I re-arranged the load and still comes up UE. I also tried a cycle without anything in the washer and still the same...


The UE error code is nothing to worry about. It indicates an "unbalanced error"¬-your washer's way of saying that the drum is not spinning is a smooth rotation. It could be as simple as rearranging the load in the drum (click image for zoom). Here's why:

1) Small loads. Your washer operates better when the weight of the load is evenly distributed across the drum, but that is not always possible with small loads.
2) Mixed fabric loads. For example, if you're washing jeans and t-shirts, the jeans could be on one side and the t-shirts on the other, causing the unbalance. Try rearranging the items and spin again.
3) Large single items. Items like sheets, blankets and comforters tend not to spread out evenly, causing unbalance when the drum spins. Rearrange the item and start the spin cycle over.
4) Spin Sense Option. If your washer has the Spin Sense Option, it may try to adjust the load on its own. If that happens, the washer would slow down and tumble a few times slowly during the spin cycle and then speed up until the problem is resolved.

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.

What does UE mean in the window of my washer


UE = Unbalance Error. If you are doing a large item and cannot add, reduce, or adjust the load, try adjusting the spin speed to a low spin speed setting. If the load is still too wet, you can run just a pump and spin by turning on power and then selecting the spin speed, one setting higher than the last one which ran the full cycle through without resulting in the UE code,(without selecting a cycle) and push start.

uE is unbalanced error. When you have bulky items, wash them with a slow spin speed. Larger loads actually balance out better, so adding items might help instead of subtracting them. After the cycle completes, if you want to you can turn the power on again and (without selecting a cycle) just push the spin speed selector button and select the next highest spin speed. The load will most likely make it through the next higher speed now that it is partially spun out. You should get a 14 minute spin and pump only when you start it now.

Won't Spin Without Assistance


It sounds to me like either there is an excessively heavy load in the washer and the unit simply isn't strong enough to get it going, or more likely the clutch mechanism/gearbox is malfunctioning. They use a clutch mechanism to allow the motor to run at a constant speed while the basket can start rotating slowly and pick up speed with time. If this clutch mechanism or gearbox isn't performing properly, the basket won't spin. It's not your motor or safety circuit since the basket will turn if given a little push.

Spin cycle


Without any other info. this sounds like the basket drive is worn out. Depending on the brand, it has different names, but it all does the same thing. Its kind of like the clutch in your car. It has to slowly get to speed. Yours, without any clothes in it has no load. But when you add weight, it doesn't have enough power to turn it. Its slipping or just worn out. Just wondering, why did you change the water pump? Did the wheel on it break?
