LG Tromm Steam Washer Cycle is complete and the stuff is so wet that they have to wrung by hand to even put they on a clothes line. Can washer be put on spin only? How?

call a technician as it indicates that the cycle from rinse, spin is not progressing to spin only
rinse,spin is a low speed spin to facilitate the rinse and to balance out the clothes ready for the fast speed spin cycle

My wf310 1100 spin will not do a high speed spin

hi, there may be not enough water draining out on the last cycle before it spins so i'd give the pump a good luck over also check the filter if it has 1, and check the drain hose. the other fault could be the module control board this controls the motor speed hope it helps

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.

Wont finish a small load. Gets to 4 minutes and

With a small load, the machine will have a difficult, if not impossible job of balancing the load. A bigger load will help. Another thing you can do is to use a low spin speed. If you wish to spin it out faster, just turn the machine back on after it has finished a cycle on the low spin speed and just push the spin speed button without selecting a cycle. You can touch the spin speed button until it shows the next higher spin speed, then push the start button and the machine will not fill with any water, it will just pump and spin. (about 14 minutes) This generally works, because you have spun most of the water out at a lower spin speed, and now the washer is able to reach the next higher spin speed as the load is not as unbalanced as it was before the low speed spin.

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.

After a wash cycle, the letters UE appeared in the timer window..

UE = Unbalance error.
try to use a low spin speed with loads like rugs, and try to get as even a load as possible. (ie: not just one rug) Don't wash rubber backed rugs, as the backing can break up and clog your machine.

Now, if you are successful washing with the lowest spin speed, you can hold the " Spin Speed " button in while pressing on the power button. Release power button. Now release the spin speed button. Now, press the spin speed button until the next higher spin speed from your last successful spin. Press start. Your washer should now pump out and attempt to reach the new spin speed, without adding any water. (usually about a 14 minute pump and spin cycle) Don't expect to be able to spin out rugs at a high spin speed.
