Washer wont spin. It went thru the whole wash cycle, but now it won't spin, and there is no error code. It comes on and the time counts down, but it doesn't spin.

We checked all these things, spent $330 on new parts (as the diasnostics suggested) and in the end it was a clogged rubber filter (looks like a black boot) in the bottom of the drum. The machine won't spin as the water has no where to go. I suggest you check this before spending any money. My machine was only 4 years old. There was money, hair clips, etc. in the filter.

Hello,Hi, If it doesnt spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Thanks

Washer stays in wash cycle will not spin out i changed control board no help


Isyour washing machine displaying an error code? If so, try using the owner's manual to decipher the code and you may beable to easily diagnose the problem. The problem could be as simple as the doorbeing slightly ajar, the machine is in pause mode, or the spin selector isstuck. Checkthe handy chart in the article Washingmachine won't advance to washer spin cycle for more possible reasons why your washingmachine won't advance to washer spin cycle-and some tricks for getting itworking again.

WE have a Maytag Neptune TL and it is stuck in the wash mode... as though the timer does not register to move on to rinse.


Katie,

I'm and owner that knows the machine very well. If you are someone has some basic skills you can repair the machine.

It will come down to how much down time you can tolerate.

What I think is the issue is that the Upper One-Way bearing is seized and when the machine enters into spin cycle of the selected wash cycle the washer can't spin the wash basket. The Control Board tries to enter the spin cycle over and over again. There is no software routine in the Control Board to sense this and the machine keeps trying execute the spin cycle of that wash cycle......Timer never counts down.....

Place that wash load in a Spin Only cycle. If my diagnosis is correct then the machine will do the same thing never count down on the LED display in the Spin Only cycle.

All these machine are ready for a Tub Seal replacement and I can direct most owners thru the process. The cost is in the area of $60 for Tub Seal, ****** O-Ring and Outer Tub bearings. If you need to replace the Clutch Pulley around $80 additional. If you are the original owner I'm sure you have been thru that.

Here is a link to replacing the Tub Seal and Outer Tub bearings. See if this is a direction you want to go. FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement

Here is a link to what I believe is your issue.........it just took me a long time to extract info from the owner on the failure. [FIXED] Maytag Neptune, Timer Problem

Maybe a FIXYA tech can jump in and add what they think might be the issue and a troubleshooting/repair path to follow.

You can make the machine last for a long time............way beyond the 3.5 yr. to 6 yr. point of most failures.........but each owner has to decide their course of action.

I go by dh1200s on most washer DIY forums including this forum.

Washer appears to be going throught the wash cycle but the counter is not counting down and it goes no further than the wash cycle. Just continues to do this the whole time. Model # FAV6800AWW


Here are some handy links if you are going to DIY the fix.


FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Are there any unbalance error codes to the LED display such as dC or uC?
When the washer stops can you place that wash load to a Spin Only Cycle and let me know if the Spin Only cycle completes. Are there any large tub swings in Spin Only cycle with that wash load that cause the Spin Cycle to stop with error codes dC or uC?

Let me know if you can to do some troubleshooting. It would require front panel removal so we can watch the Motor and verify it will rotate the Clutch Pulley CCW in the Spin Only Cycle. If you want to troubleshoot I will give you additional info to begin the process…….Rich

No error codes-washes but does not spin- water stuck in bottom


If your machine is a FAV6800A to FAV9800A here is the Service Manual.
If you lift the washer lid and rotate the wash basket CCW which is the Spin Cycle direction will it turn with very little resistance? It should not rotate CW.
With no error codes I would go to Service Mode page 14 of the Service Manual and read the current recorded Daig codes and write them down then clear the list.
Now start a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket let it in that mode for about 5 minutes. Hit the off button to end the Spin Onlly cycle then check the Diag code block and see if an error event was logged if so please let us know.
If there is no error code generation by the Control Board in the Diag code blocks I would suspect a Control Board issue with your no Spin issue..
Without a known good Control Board and Motor Controller to swap out and no error code generation by the Control Board this would be a hard problem to troubleshoot.
The Control Board is under warranty for 5 yrs you could try Maytag Customer Service the number is in the SM and see if they will send you one even if the warranty is up…..Rich

Washer doesn't spin


Hello skull1829 ,

Was the Clutch/One-way roller bearing changed out for dc/UC errors in your FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW?

If you start a Spin Only Cycle with an empty wash basket will the wash basket spin up CCW and complete the cycle? Lift the washer top from the base a few inches to observe the wash basket CCW rotation in spin cycle. If the clutch spring is broken or end pins of spring aren't seated the tumblers will rotate and the wash basket will rotate slowly CCW.


IF the wash basket won't spin up can you pull the front cover off and insure the motor will rotate the clutch pulley CCW in a Spin Only Cycle? Let’s try these few basic tests and get some feedback for troubleshooting.

The washing cycle takes much longer than the time listed on the panel.


Sounds like the pump may be clogged. If it doesn't get rid of all the water, it wont' spin. Remove bottom panel. Locate what looks like a big white screw. Remove counterclockwise. (It's tight). Have a bucket ready under neath, or a shop vac. Remove slowly to catch water as it comes out. When you pull the white part of the pump all the way out, there's probably things clogging the holes.
