Same problem here for the 2nd time. if you have had a loose button or change or left anything in the pockets that can get under the spinners on the side there is something probably stuck and then that burn out the arm that attaches the drum to the washer and it cost approx 180 for the repair man to come and fix it because you have to have special tools to remove the spinners. if you find something cheeper please let me know/

You don't have to fill too much the washer, leave 1/4 of the cylinder free (if it's a front load washer) or check the maximum level for the top-load washer. Be careful not to compress the clothes. The weight that the washer can manage is the weight of the WET clothes.
More technically: the washer need to balance the drum before to spin-dry and for this it needs some free room in the drum. There is a sensor that check that there isn't too much vibrations during the spin-dry, otherwise it stops!
Hi Jim, you issue could be caused by a couple either one of a of the following,
1) Draining problem, cant empty the water from the machine within the prescribed time limit - preventing the spin programme to commence. check pump filter is clear and waste water is pumping from the end of the waste hose, the hose itself could be blocked with limescale and detergent residue.
2) Unbalanced load, most machines wont spin 1 item, its a safety thing, if a machine spins with one heavy item it puts the drum out of balance resulting in excessive drum movement possibly damaging the inside of the machine and put indue stress on the bearings. Try putting it on a spin cycle with no clothes in
Unbalanced load detection can also be caused by a faulty motor tacho, this usaually positioned at the rear of the motor, this sends an electrical signal to the programmer telling when it is 'Safe' to spin. There also the posibility that the programmer is not reading the tacho signal or misinterpriting it.
