There are 2 possible problems. First one is the timer may be bad. The second one is there is a belt that makes the drum turn. This is not an easy replacement for a beginner. You may need to call in a repairman.

Frigidaire front loading washing machine will not do final spin


If you cannot manually turn the tub when it is off, and not in use, then the motor and transmission is possibly seized. If you can turn it with no issue or noise, then the control is not communicating correctly to the unit.

It starts but then seems to just make a whurring noise and nothing else happens no rotars going round or anything? At first it seemed like it got stuck after the cycle but I have pressed re-set and now it...


The reason for the whurring sound is that the water pump is trying to empty the drum first before letting in the new water cycle, I would check your outlet water pipe for any obstruction first by blowing down the pipe to check to see if there's a blockage, with the machine off of course this is of course only a suggestion but I hope it helps eric

I have a maytag over capacity plus heavy duty 2 speed 10 cycle washer it fills with water fine you hear the motor kick in to girate but doesent spin or you put it on spin cycle it sounds like it is...


The motor is working, but the mechanism not engaged by the helix so the shaft can not move therefore no agitation or spinning. Motor is designed to turn 2 directions: clockwise and counterclockwise for agitation and spinning. Therefore there are 2 mechanisms to assist these tasks. The drain is control by a separate pump and it is still good also.
The tube has to be out to replace the helix for agitation and a part to engage with the spinning rotation to release the brake so the spinning function can work. These parts are cheap, but the the labor is not. Hope this can help

Doesn't spin freely, works for about half a cycle and stops spinning. won't turn back on or spin good until it cools for a few hours. then you might get another half cycle or so out of it.


open the dryer door and maunually spin the drum around. if it spins relatively easily, then it sounds like the drive motor is going bad. the windings open up and it stops. sounds like you need a new motor. it may be cheaper in the long run to get a new dryer

Washer won't spin


Check the washer motor. Make sure that the motor is getting correct voltage and is working and spinning when you turn it on. It sounds like the motor is bad. You can remove the back cover to get to the motor to check it out

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin


Start checking the lid switch, if this is stuck the machine wont start.

If the drum does not move at all, the motor, the motor control unit, the motor coupler, the control board may be faulty.

For more details you need to observe if machine is draining and pumping water inside during cycle, see: It doesn't spin

Won't spin or agitate


Sounds like a burning out motor to me...

Everything is working except the spin cycle


Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.

Spin cycle trouble


possibly a segment has raised on the motor armature or a faulty motor brush. pop off the belt and put it into a spin cycle to see if you still hear the noise- if so the fault is with the motor as the drum will be still. any scraping sounds in the drum may be a lost bra wire.
