Hi, we have Simpson top loading washing machine model number Esprit 550, the drum is not rotating and the spinning plastic rod in the centre of the drum is not spinning/rotating either

that is a direct drive

is the agitator (plastic rod )loose or sloppy
if you look down the inside of the agitator
do you see a nut at the base holding the agitator tight

if the timer is working
and water can pump in and out
that is good

if you cant hear the motor click in
it will need to have the inspection cover taken off
for service or part replacement

Simpson enviro 080 doesnt spin

water backing up in the machine indicates a blockage. Two places to look are the filter and the hoses. If it is a well used machine there is a possibility of clothing in the pump. Usually something small like a sock. Hope this helps.

Jet Plane noise in spin cycle

The bearing in the outer tub assembly is going out and you will need to replace it. Here is the part if you want to order it but you might want to look into buying another machine.

Spinning with loud noise

If it sounds like a jet taking off then you have a bad bearing. If you hear a clunk/clank your basket is cracked. Both require same fixed tub and basket replacement. Min $500 fix and takes two technicians to do the job.

Brigette can you be more specific. Does the motor sound like it is still running? Or do you hear any uncommon noises ? Does it spin without clothes in the washer?

My neighbour takes his Toyota Tazz out of the garage every morning and leaves it idling in his drive way. The automatic choke gets stuck, so the car sounds like a jet getting ready to take off. He leaves...

shoot your neighbour??? no seriously,the auto choke will go off if you touch the gas peddle,ask him to rev it slightly just before he gets out.another way is to turn up your stereo to drown out the noise,he may get the hint....but thats like joining him in noise pollution.(ask one of the kids to stick a potato up the tailpipe sometime when he aint damage,just peace.
