    k. thnx. but before i start tearing things down, note this...when setting to "spin only" the pump kicks in and discharges the water in the drum. machine counts down on the timer but drum sits idle. i can manually turn the drum by hand with no resistance other than belt to motor drag Does this change your solution?

Inside the hose, coming off the bottom of the tub to the pump, there is a drain catch that catches everything that you leave in your clothes, it is probable clogged, causing it not to spin, Disconnect hose from bottom of tub and pull out cylinder inside hose and check for restriction, not going to be easy, good luck

    your washer will not spin until the pressure switch allows it, so if your pump is not pumping out all the water , it will not spin, there is an easier way to check that hose at the bottom of the tub, if you don't have a pedestal on it, pull out your washer so you can tip it back and let it rest against the wall, at the bottom of your washer base there will be an oval hole that will give you access to the hose that has the drain catch,before you do this you may want to get a shop vac and drain water out through drain hose, if not alot of water will come out when you remove that hose, all you need is a phillips screw driver or a 9/32 socket or nutdriver to remove the clamp, once you have done that, pull hose off and reach inside hose and pull out plastic cylinder and check for restriction

GE GFWN1100LWW. Can the high speed spin work on the lower wash cycles?

From my experience, the lower wash cycles are set to only do certain things. For example: the Delicate won't do a high speed spin, even though a high speed spin wouldn't really be destructive to delicates, but would force more water out of them! I usually just run a "Drain/Spin" after the Delicate cycle.

When washing machine do not spin.dose timer continue work or has stop?

The timer usually continues to run but the contacts to the motor get corroded so that it won't get the power necessary to spin. The power needed for the spin cycle is far greater than needed for other cycles is why the spin cycle fails first.
Very rarely will a timer motor that works for the rest of the cycle stop for just the spin, but it could happen.
Just buy a new timer assembly. Get the model number and use Google; but look at several offerings noting the part number. If you find a cheap price but a different part number, buy the one that matches the factory number as best you can.
While you are working on the machine, you probably should replace the drive belt, if it has one.

Electrolux front load washing machine ew10001 spin cycle slow on "SPIN" setting runs fine through regular wash setting? any ideas?

Hello jamespeattie - Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and if issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

Washing machine 11 years old is jumping on the wash cycles. EG instead of taking 25 mins its taking 10 mins to complete -clothes coming out wet unless manually turn to spin again

It is possible that the program is not running to the designed settings and so the program seems to skip the cycle.
The clothes come out wet because the spin cycle is not activated in the set program. Hence the program controller needs a check.

My Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW top load washer only runs for the first few minutes of the cycle, it will not just stops..we've tried two cycles, the quick starts at 33 mins and then stops...

I'm and owner and will try to help. Are you handy and do you want to try a DIY fix?

From the wash times is sounds like the washer is agitating the wash load (tumblers are rotating the wash basket load) is that correct?

If so see if the machine will complete a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket. Set the Spin setting to Spin/Hang dry seting and start the cycle. It should take about 10 min complete. Does the Spin Only cycle complete with no clothes in the wash basket?

Some handy links if you are going to DIY.........Service Manual for reference.

Bosch Nexxt 800 washer won't drain clothes fully

There is not a Spin Only Cycle BUT there is a REFRESH cycle that will take about 10 minutes.

Sometimes when the load is unbalanced and the machine can not balance the load by itself, the clothes will remain soaked. To avoid this, make sure you always have a balance of small and large things and when loading your machine, do not shove the items in so they ball up.
