Hi just read your posting.Now can you confirm the model number please.Please ;look underneath the machine to the front right and you should see a pump with a red or black fan attached.Turn this fan clockwise and anticlockwise a few times to hopefully loosen the pump if it is jammed.If the fan turns freely then put it back on its feet and start a spin cycle to see if it drains the water.Please reply with additional information on the questions and to tell me if you have the pump with the fan or if it is not draining or if it still is not draining.

I have a Bosch WFMC330SUC that does not end the cycle, it just keeps starting over. I assume it is a bad control board, but they are $300+ and I'd probably replace the machine instead. Any suggestions?


Hi wwwylie,

First check the Drain Pump filter, as the last 2 cycles of a machine is Drain & Spin, and if the Drain pump cannot drain the water, the filter may be clogged and the cycle won't progress to spin.

Please follow my below Tip on how to do this:

ACCESSING, DRAINING & CLEANING THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER...

Kind Regards

Washer won't spin


Hi hometownrock,

The washing machine may have a problem draining the water, if it cannot drain the water, then the cycle will not progress to Spin. You may have a foreign object in the Drain Pump Filter, this must be checked.

Please follow my below Tip on how to do this:

My samsung washing machine J1453S is having a problem with spinning, no problem with loading water, drive belt is fine.


Hi donna sarmie,

It could be your machine is stuck on the drain cycle, and won't continue to spin, because the drain filter is clogged.

You may need to clean the Drain Filter, please find my Tip below on the procedure:

Kind Regards :-)

My fisher & paykel smart drive 051 will wash then drain, but when it gets to the spin cycle it wont spin at all it fills then drains only.


Possible that the program controller is faulty and is not executing the output when the wash cycle and the drain is done. So the program must advance further to the next stage to drive the motor to spin after the water is pumped off and the water level sensor is reset.
Have the conttroller checked to confirm the fault, look for loose joints in the connections.
If not the controller can be a suspect.

Machine will not spin or drain water.


I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.

Final spin cycle issues


Clothes are too wet after spin cycle This may be a spin problem or a drain problem
Drain:
  • Make sure the drain line is clear
  • Check the drain hose for a partial blockage
  • Inspect the water pump
Spin:
  • Test the lid switch
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the centrifugal switch
  • Test the water level switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission

HOPE THIS MAY HELP YOU;

Wont spin


you have to check all the harness connections on this machine and when you realize that this is going to happen often you may want to consider tossing this in a dumpster.
