Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Everything works with the washer except the spin cycle. Its like the brake is locked. All the belts are good. What is causing the spin cycle not to spin? I have tried running the spin cycle and turning the tub with my hand but the brake is still locked down so it doesnt move freely. Just looking for anykind of assistance.

Try tipping unit over, theres a large pulley under there connected to transmission, grab hold and spin that both ways. one way free spins, the other way pushes up on the center shaft to release brake and start spin.you can replace the thrust bearing yourself( kit includes new pulley ,and cam w/ new spacers) a brake issue would need to be done by pro. you need special brake tools.

I have a maytag frontload washer 2000 series that will not start spin cycle won't even try unless the washer is empty. no error codes showing, even after I do diagnostics. help...wife is miffed..


After determining that the washer is plugged in, the drain hose is free from kinks, the "No spin" option is not selected and the washer door is securely closed, the cycle should be reselected to see if the washer will spin. If this does not solve the problem, it is advised to contact a trusted repair service. Problems with the lid switch assembly, drive belt, drive pulley, drive motor, tub bearing or transmission can also cause a Maytag washer not to spin. These repairs should be carried out by a professional.
If the washer is spinning but clothes are still wet at the end of the cycle, one should ensure that the washer is not overloaded or unbalanced and that the correct wash cycle is selected. Delicate or handwash cycles spin at a lower speed, resulting in wetter clothes

Take the belt off the transmission pulley and see if you can turn it by hand. It will agitate on direction and spin when you turn it the other direction.
Put the timer to spin with the belt off and see if the motor will run. There may be a problem in the start switch on the motor letting it start in one direction but not in the reverse direction.
Special tools are required to remove the transmission and brake assembelies. You also want to make sure there is nothing sticking through the holes in the basket causing it to lock up such as a nail or screw that may have been left in a pocket.
Post back with what you find.
Thanks/Mike

My front load washer won't spin. It goes thru all the rest of the cycles except spin. It doesn't spin between wash and rinse either. It drains great, I've already checked that and no restrictions.


the next thing you will need to do is replace the door lock mechanism this will fail and cause the issue you are having the only other thing would be the main control board,but replace the door lock mechanism first.

Washer is acting erratic. spin cycle works sometimes. stops half way through cycle sometimes. got a new belt. what's next? pump or timer. both are spendy $ thanks. frigidaire FTR630ASO


The control monitors the door lock prior to and during the spin cycle as a safety feature. The washer will not advance to the spin cycle when the door lock is not activated and stops when the lock is deactivated during the spin cycle.

In your case, the door lock is working intermittently causing the washer to spin intermittently. This is probably due to a faulty door lock and switch assembly or poor connection at the control board or at the assembly itself. Replace the door lock and switch assembly if necessary.

Washer won't spin. Belt is slipping. Tub is stuck.


The belt sounds worn out since its slipping. Change it out. Its cheap fix.

The drum brake does just what is sounds like. brakes the drum. For instance when u open the lid during a cycle and everything stops thats the drum engaging and stops the movement of teh drum. If the brake is malfunctioning two things will happen, you open the lid (assuming the safety switch is still good) or the drum will not spin at all.

Maytag top loading washer quiet plus, locks up during spin makes


Either the drum brake is going bad or is bad,

or, if the unit is belt driven, the belt is slipping, and the friction on the belt is causing the rubber to melt, making that nasty stench you smell.

Sounds like a sticky brake assy. This type of brake is very tricky and should be checked be a service technician

It's possible to do it yourself but not recommended because of the 200 lb. pressure spring. Hope the diagram will help.

Everything is working except the spin cycle


Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
