Roper washing machine makes grinding noise on spin cycle but the tub doesn't turn


It sounds like you have a motor coupling that is broken. There are videos on YouTube to show you how to repair this. Search for "motor coupling repair on direct drive".

Frigidaire washing machine (FTW3011KW0) runs through all cycles, agitates, pumps out water, but doesn't spin, nor does the motor attempt to spin during the spin cycle


Your main switch needs replaced. The motor that drives the switch operates because it goes through the other cycles, so the switch must be bad.

My washer has recently started thumping and banging during the spin cycle. I thought it was uneven weight distribution, but it does it every spin now. And when the spinning slows down it has started...


Hi, . according to your washer problem i m writing solution ,please read and follow it:-
  1. Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
  2. check out this following options one by one to locate the fault in your machine.
  3. 1)Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.2)Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.)3)Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.4)Clear thewater pumpfrom obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water.5)Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.6)Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.

Gw 612 washes ,drains wont spin fault comes up as on off off off on


Hi just read your posting.Now the problem you might have, and I have had before, is the motor is not turning the bowl far enough when it is starting to spin and therefore the machine thinks the bowl is not turning.To get your machine spinning 1st undo the 2 screws under the lid so you can lift the hob up to see the bowl.Select a spin cycle and hit start while you are holding the hob up enough to see the bowl.The reason for lifting the hob instead of the lid to see the bowl is if you lifted the lid the machine would not work because of the lid switch.Now when you are holding the hob up to see the bowl make sure the lid is closed so the machine will work.Now once you have started the spin cycle you will see the bowl turning one way then reverse and turn the other way.While you are holding the hob up when the bowl turns in 1 direction help turn the bowl in that same direction with your hand.Once the bowl reverses help turning it in that direction also.This will make the machine register that the bowl is loose enough and will kick to spin.Once it is spinning let it spin for the cycle and you should be fine.Please reply for further help if needed,Good luck

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

Inglis washing machine won't spin


Turn the timer indicator to the asterisk * start it up. It should agitate without no water in it. If it don't agitate you have a bad coupling part number 285753 whirlpool. Google it.

LWH0050P Stackable Compact Washer not spinning


sounds like it could be the transmission. Does the tub turn when you turn the pulley in either direction with your hand? And take the belt off see if the motor turns when you close the lid and turn it on without the belt??
