Hiya... unless your machine is a direct drive it sounds like your drive belt has snapped! Could possibly have stretched.. either way you need to replace!

My Whirpool Duet front loader will begin a wash cycle, but stops when cycle switches to rinse with water in the drum. Door remains locked & light by the 'wash' flashes 9 times...


when the machine is stopped can you empty the residue water that remains by the programme selector? if not check for blockage in the pump(coin), the hose internal blockage ,or at the outlet under sink. I hope this help

Spin no squeeze


Drain it, unhook it and lay it down, check underneath for broken springs on the drum to the frame

Duet whirpool washing machine stop and DLF sign appear


Hi,
Initially unplug the washing machine.While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for five seconds.
Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the DL code is cleared.

If you still face the problem then follow the procedure:

Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause].
This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum.

Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.


Hope this helps.

Hi there i have an indesit washing machine and the drum has just stopped turning even by hand thanks craig


If you cannot turn the drum by hand, then there are a couple of possibilities that come to mind.
1- it is possible the drum bearings have siezed up,, remove lower rear panel of washer, and remove the belt the drum should be free to turn.
If it does not, then it is either the main bearings, or there is something fast between the inner and outer drum..
2- if the drum is free to turn, then it could be the moior bearings seized up.

Washin Machine Spinning Problem


The main tub bearing is stuffed, thus the noise. The spindle becomes loose and the belt rides off. Bearings can be replaced.
Hope that helps.

Whirpool top loader unbalanced spin cycle


First change the springs - both the leveling and suspension. You may also need to change a few other parts on the brake and drive tube including the thrust ring. But replace the springs and let see what happens.

Kenmore Washer Spin Issue - Need help troubleshooting


Check the coils on the wig-gag. Its a couple of bars that engage the spin drive or the wash drive. If you look at the machine when its running you will see it moving back and forth, hence the name. If the coil engages the spin cam, but it still will not spin then the tranny is your next culprit.
