    I have a sav515deww Maytag washer . It does not spin clothes dry and is getting worse . The clothes are being left more soaked each time i use it . I fear that the next time I open the top I will see that it hasn't even emptied at all. It is a 2005 and was rebuilt a year and a half after I got it. The repair man came today and said it would have to have a new transmission and belt and new brake pads . It is hard to believe that it has to be rebuilt again! I think but can't tell if the clothes are rinsing all the soap out because the black clothes are coming out with a film white in color. I think I'm loosing the spin on the wash cycle and the soap is in the rinse cycle then not spinning in the rinse cycle so the soap is still in the clothes. Does this make sense? Is this an easy fix for my husband who can repair alot of things.The parts are still under warranty and the repair man would rather me ditch this machine and admitts he hates working on this model.

I have a front loader washer Kenmore Elite Model #796.40311900 that spins SLOW, not FAST as it should on spin. The digital readout works normally.

sounds like maybe drain filter is plugged and unit is not draining fast enough. if you have drain access in front pull it out and clean it.

WFS1073DD front load WASHING MACHINE Everything works but will not spin fast enough to spin the water out. It spins very slow

Early automatic washers used a motor with multiple windings to provide the various speeds required by different parts of each wash programme. Modern washers use an entirely different sort of motor and the speeds are selected and controlled electronically with feedback to ensure the speed is correct.

I suspect the problem is the electronics - the part of the programmer and controller that regulates the motor speed but you should check the motor and motor brushes, the drive belt and all electrical connections as a matter of best practice before you spend money...

Will only spin slow speed will not spin at high speed. Everything else seems to be working fine.

Make certain that your selected wash cycle designates a higher spin speed. If so, then you may have an issue with the motor or motor control board. Contact an appliance service company.

Whirlpool washer slow to spin

Yes I happens to work a lot with this type of machines. Normally when the spin is too slow the problem rises form a week voltage, motor winding too week for the velocity. I means that the winding in the motor might have gotten burn and weakened the winding to the point where when the motor ask for more voltage to spins the housing the winding heat up. That is why you smell as something burning. The system in this type of machines is not complex but tedious. If everything else work in the machine then it is the motor.
