Re: Washer won't go into fast spin cycle

There are three possibilities, ONE: From the motor to the tub is a - Coupler. This works like a shim, like when it has too much force against the tub or some where. Sometimes these become worn, and that can slow down your machine, TWO: The clutch kit could be worn and dirty, OR, THREE: There is a resistance from the transmission or tub.

HI: My washer will not drain all the water out at the end of the wash can you help me out

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya

Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Washing machine seems to be washing ok but when it comes to the final rinse and spin the soapy water is pouring out of the soap dispenser on the front

this is happening because the machine is not draining the water away fast enough when going into the spin cycle. clean out the filter under the machine, this will solve your problem.

My hotpoint wma56 wont do its fast spin cycle

Have you checked and cleaned the filter on the machine, usually located and the front near the bottom. If so then there is 2 other possibilities, either your water pump at the back of the machine is blocked or faulty, or it's the timer on the machine. A washer won't go into spin mode until it has drained all the water from the machine first. hence the pump has to run. Just remember to drain all the water from the machine before checking your filter otherwise it will end up on your floor.

Wet clothing

Does water run all the time or part of the time. Some water is injected during the spin cycle to remove excess soap and softener.
