Why is the drum not spinning on my Hoover VisionTech VTS712D21 Washing Machine?


It could be the drum bearings are seizing or something is causing it to jam.

If this is the case the motor would work too hard and draw too much current and consequently would cut out for a time and then reset.

Removing the drivebelt and turning the drum by hand would show if this is probable.

Washing machine shakes badly when spinning.


If not an unbalanced load, then it is an unbalanced drum. Turn the drum by hand when it is empty and it should spin smoothly (not freely because it is attached to the motor so there will be resistance). Can you hear a knocking or grinding? Push and pull the drum in and out, again any knocking? With your hands at 3 and 9 o'clock push with one hand while pulling with the other and rock the drum back and forth. Try it with hands at 12 and 6. Does it feel loose or makes a knocking?
Grinding is usually a sign if the bearings going or gone and knocking may indicate a broken drum holder (sometimes called a spider)
If everything sounds and feels okay then it may just be the machine is not level or secure. Rock the machine and if it wobbles check the feet and adjust until no more rocking. The feet do bend or adjust themselves over time, even making some kind of impression on the floor that makes it settle to a different level.

Hotpoint BWD129 Spinning Difficulties


IF it sits and you can turn it later, the only thing that would cause that is something heating up and becoming seized. When it cools off it frees itself. I would check the bearings on the drum.

Spin - loud noise - switched off - drum wont turn


I'm just hazarding a guess here, but it sounds like the bearings have gone (if you try to turn the drum by hand and it sounds noisy and grinding/crunchy then I think it would be the bearings). I'm certainly no expert though.

When it gets to spin cycle it move all over the placy bang into wall ????


Check to see if the machine is level and all the 4 legs are making good contact with the floor. If the machine is level, check to see if the machine spins freely. Open the door and check the drum. It should be hang straight in the opening. Spin the drum by hand and listen for any strange noises. It should spins quietly without any banging noises. If that check out, remove the lower access cover and look at the wash drum. There are two shock absorbers. If they look damaged, they will need to be replaced.

In spin cycle, there is a loud metal on metal sound. could it be a bearing going out? the machine still spins but much slower, and the banging sound occurs in one place every revolution during the spin...


Hi
Remove the drum belt, and spin drum by hand.
If it feels rough, or it is noisy, then drum bearigs have failed.
Please rate my solution.
thanks.

Washing machine wont spin


Maybe something is physically preventing the drum from spinning, causing the motor protection to kick in and stopping the machine.

I'd check this out as a first step before calling a repair man:
1) unplug the machine from mains
2) make room between the rubber gasket and the drum for your hand/arm to reach down into the bowels of the machine, in the compartment between the drum and the bowl (or whatever you call it). If you find something strange there, remove it.

I've done this on occasion and have found lots of obstructing objects that don't belong there. Most notably hardware from underwire bras I might add... :)

It is worth a try.

Good luck!
