Re: washing machine not spinning

You may very well have a frozen brake located at the bottom of the transmission. Take the belt off and turn the large wheel in both directions. The wheel should turn easy in one direction and tight in the other. We are concerned with the tight rotation. Turn the wheel by hand. Directly above the wheel is the brake. Watch to see if the brake lifts up and turns. If not then the brake will need serviced.

Washing machine will not spin

Hi, If this model has a belt, you might need to replace it. Once the belt gets wet, they are ruined. If the motor runs during the spin cycle and the tub does not turn, it is most likely the belt. If the motor is not running in the spin cycle, we need to look at other causes. If I can assist you further, please get me a model # so I can see exactly what washer you have.

Tub doesnt spin after wash or rinse cycle

if it goes thru the wash cycle , is NOT a belt problem , what could be is a sensor switch located underneath where the door closes , its like a latch switch for security when it goes to spin, hope its helpful AJ

Make noise during wash cycle, has no agitator action and no spin during spin cycle/drain cycle

Looks like the bearings may have failed. TURN OFF the POWER and try and rotate the agitator/tub by hand. If it is jammed you should investigate why. Possibly caused by bearing failure or something wound around spindle.

Take care and do not attempt to investigate the problem without first disconnecting from the mains!
