Run the washer empty on the lowest water level. Cold will save energy. Watch it fill, close the lid, stay there. Don't advance the timer no matter how tempting as this could skip a program interval. When you hear the water draining listen for a sound change and open the top and see if it drained completely -- pumped out empty. Close the lid so the cycle can continue. During the spin cycle open the lid. See if the drum was really turning fast -- it will be slowing down as soon as you open the lid because that stops the motor. If everything seems normal, then the problem may be transmission or belt slipping under load. Do you have the problem only on large loads? If the spin speed is slow during the test then the transmission is not shifting in to high, controlled by a solenoid. Check the solenoid for power during the spin cycle. Operate the washer on blocks or outside on saw horses to see full function of underneath parts and have access to electrical wires for testing. Use precautions testing and plug into a GFCI. Take your car battery jumper cables and clamp to a water pipe ground and to the underneath frame where the motor mounts. This should keep you from getting electricuted standing in water and holding a test meter.

We have an Ultima washing machine and creases the cloths very badly any suggestions please


The amount of creasing you will get is directly related to the speed you select for the final spin dry cycle and the spin after the first wash cycle which occurs prior to the rinse cycle. The higher the speed and the longer it goes for the more the clothes will crease.

Experiment with different spin speeds on your machine for clothing that is subject to the creasing problem. Also do not put too many items in the machine for a wash as many people do as this will contribute to creasing. Always under load your machine for every wash cycle.

Spin drying is a compromise between creasing and maximum water removal. If you want less creasing you will need to select a more gentle spin dry speed but you will also have the clothes coming out of the machine with a higher water content and they will take a bit longer to dry. The spin time on the program may also be shorter.

In my own machines I use a gentle wash and spin cycle for all clothing that I don't want heavily creased. Running it on a wash cycle with a high and longer spin speed when the machine is spinning the clothes after the initial wash, and then again after the final rinse, will thoroughly crease the clothes every time.

Also bear in mind that different fabrics that are suitable for machine washing will perform differently and some are just too subject to creasing even if you use the most gentle wash, rinse and spin cycle. Hence you can take 2 different 100% cotton fabrics out of a machine and hang them to dry and one will be almost crease free and the other will be thoroughly creased. With these fabrics that are just very subject to wash creasing, it is better to hand wash and rinse them. Then after rinsing drip dry them or put them in the machine and spin them for 1 -2 minutes maximum just to get some of the water out and hang dry them.

How to more dry after completed washing


A washing machine does not really dry clothes. All it does is that it helps remove most but not all water from the clothes by spinning the clothes at a very high speed and the water comes out because of centrifugal force.
To further dry the clothes, you need to buy a clothes dryer. This machine has a heater inside that actually dries the clothes while keep it spinning at a slow speed.
Usually the company that made your washing machine will also have a dryer in the product portfolio.
Hope that helps

Washer-dryer # wm3677HW will not dry,heats up, run, on and on


You're a moron. This unit washes and dries. That's the whole point of it. Perhaps you should do some research before answering the question. the most likely cause is the water lever sensor.

Top load does not spin dry the clothes


Transmission or solenoid that should pick and put transmission into spin. I bet it's a kenmore or similar.
