May Tag stackable washer model: MHWC7500YW.

A. Put unit into "clean washer". Press "Cancel" 4 times. Unit should ramp up to a medium spin, about 500 rpm and then coast to a stop.
B. Once the unit is done, turn it off.
C. Put the unit back to "clean washer." Press the "Start" button 4 times quickly. Unit will now go into a self test and error codes should pop up if there are any to display.
Now that the unit knows what zero and 500 rpm is, it should be able to ramp up to the right spin speeds at appropriate times

Washer Spin Cycle doesn't work - sometimes

Hello T Wright - Based on the symptoms you are describing, it sounds like more than likely the unit is sensing an out of balance load, which could be too light or to heavy of a load, and the unit will not advance to high speed spin. However, often when a unit does not spin, it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Washer won't go into spin cycle, stops after final rinse. When I try drain &rinse it still will not spin.

If the unit does not spin correctly, this is usually an indication that the unit can also not drain. The unit will not spin if it senses a blockage or issue with the drain lines and/or pump. Try to check the drain lines in the back of the unit for any issue, and then see if you have an access panel to get to the coin trap or drain pump itself. Often socks and debris will clog up in this area and cause your problems.

If you have tried cleaning the laser lens and the unit does spin,You have a defective laser assy,this is common with these players.If unit does not spin,try spinning it when you insert a disc by hand as this may start the unit spinning,if starts spinning then unit has a bad spin motor.

Doesnt spin sometmes starts then stops then the spin and rinse light flashes if i start shaken machine it starts spinning

Without being there to look at the unit this is what I would do. Check to see if the unit is level with a level. Adjust the post under the washer. This is a two man job as you will have to lift the unit to adjust the post. I have put a short piece of 2X4 to hold up the unit. How old is the unit. If you have rust on your post this will not work. The way these post work are with the vibration of the unit. The two back post on most units are self adjusting so you might be able to just tap on them with a hammer and they will fall to accomplish the self leveling. Also listen for a humming noise when your washer goes into the spin cycle this might mean your spin motor is going bad. It is cheaper now a days just to buy another unit than trying to fix this. You can get a cheap one off of craigslist. Thanks.

Haier XQG50-11 spin and dryer do not work

Same thing happened to my unit. It turned out to be the no spin switch which I never used anyway.

The switch had gone bad even though it was never used it. It was broken in the no spin state. The connectors on mine were a bit chared looking.

Take the top cover off the unit and remove the two wires from the no spin switch. Place a jumper between these two wires bypassing the switch or replace the switch.

In the no spin cycle the unit will not spin or dry.

I bypassed my switch and the unit runs perfect again.
