My washer will go through the wash cycle and the drum will spin, but when the rinse cycle starts the drum will not spin - the motor is still on- the drum just won't spin and drain the water out of the clothes. I tried taking the clothes out, adding more to the load with no change.
It turns out that there was a sock stuck within the pump in the washing machine. I removed the back cover and removed all the excess water, because once the sock was removed, the water was free to escape. I just removed the hose that connects to the pump and felt the sock, and was able to remove it. Once I hooked everything back up, the washing machine ran great.

I have to know a little more detail before I can give you a reasonable solution. Does the washer drum fail to spin period? In other words, if you select rinse cycle manually, after the rinse cycle completes, does it fail to spin? Also, please give me the model number so I can look it up on my tech site. Thx Rick
Your drum is in a sense sitting on a barring , it sounds like your barring is going out. Works with no weight, and if helping as you said. Normally means barring is worn out and can not handle any weight.
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.
When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it. Good luck!
POWERUP, YOUR WASHER COULD BE THE LID SWITCH OR THE COLD WATER VALVE. AT THE END OF THE WASH CYCLE, THE MOTOR WILL SPIN OUT THE WATER, BUT ONLY IF THE LID SWITCH IS ACTUATED. IF THE SWITCH IS BAD, IT WILL NOT SPIN OUT THE WATER AND THE TIMER WILL NOT ADVANCE FROM THAT POINT.
IF THE WASHER SPINS, THE NEXT STEP IS TO FILL WITH WATER FOR THE RINSE CYCLE. MOST WASHERS USE COLD WATER FOR RINSES. IF THE COLD WATER VALVE IS RESTRICTED OR FAULTY, THE WASHER WON'T FILL. IF THE WASHER WON'T FILL, THE WATER LEVEL SWITCH WON'T ACTIVATE AND THE TIMER WON'T ADVANCE TO THE NEXT STEP.
Remove top of machine and check the centralising springs are still attatched. If springs ok tilt machine against the wall after unplugging from the wall socket and check the shock absorbers. One of them could have jumped out of the guides. If shockies are ok, check the spider for cracks/breaks. The spider is the cast part that holds the outside drum in place. To check this you will have to remove the back plate.
