Question about Washing Machines

The drum has stopped spinning, i have tried it without any clothes in the machine and it seems to work. As soon as you add any clothes to it even just 2 or 3 small light items the drum wont spin. I just need to know which part needs replacing to be able to order one. Any help appreciated. Thanks

Why does the Drum spin erratic even without clothes in it?


might be a warped spin basket or the dampers could need to be replaced. could even be a bad spin bearing. if it was bearing, normally would be associated with a loud noise during the spin cycle though.

Banging drum when spinning


if the drum in the washer klunks/bangs in ANY brand of washer when it is spinning, your load is off balance. stop the machine, re-distribute the wet clothes so that the weight is evenly distributed, then restar the spin. u may have to do this more than once if u did not evely distribute the weight. this is an easy one. just be sure to stop the spin soon as it starts banging. letting it bang thru an entire spin cycle could result in actual damage to the machine. some of the new machines auto shut off at an imbalance so u can correct the problem. think of spinning a top. u unevenly add weights to it then spin it again, it WILL wobble.

Washer won't shift into spin


with a lot of the machines now they wont go into spin mode if the drum is not balanced properly, like say you had a load of towels in their, well it wont spin as its to unstable to spin without wobbling around so it simply stops at the spin cycle and does nothing, you can try this by turning it on with no clothes in and see if it will go into the spin cycle with no clothes in, if it does then chances are its not weighing the clothes properly and would end up costing a fortune to put right as it sounds like you spent a lot of money on parts all ready, so give i a try with no clothes in and see if it will spin, have you tried turning the drum by hand when its switched off to check for any grinding noises or jerking when you try to turn it by hand, im not sure how the balance sensor works or even where it is as its a new feature in the last few years but people are now starting to have problems with this feature and it stops the machine from spinning leaving the clothes soaking yet, so give it a try empty and see what happens

Fills with water then does not rotate, also does not spin


Check for large items of clothes being tangled if the Bosch washing machine doesn't spin. The weight could not be evenly distributed in the drum and the spin cycle will have been disabled to prevent damage to the clothes..

Load the drum with large and small clothes together and run the entire washing cycle and spin cycle again.

Add more powder and run the entire washing and spin cycle again if you haven't found tangled large items, but the spin cycle still failed. This indicates the amount of cloths was too small.

Add 1 tablespoon of fabric softener to 1 pint of water and pour it into the main detergent dispenser if there's no tangling and the load was a normal size. The cause would have been excessive suds because of too much, or the wrong kind, of detergent. Use HE (High Efficiency) detergent in Bosch washing machines.

Not spinning..although drum turning and draining as normal.. Thanks


Could be a imbalance with the load inside the machine if there is too much or too little clothes in. Had this the other week on a machine when owner had only put a couple of items in, when the items were wet the were heavy on one side of the drum and the load sensors stopped the machine from spinning up. Remove clothes from machine and try empty, if it works properly either throw some more stuff in to help even the weight or remove some stuff if overloaded.

Sounds like a jet engine at full spin cycle


These things are notorious for sucking clothing under the the drum , it could cause it to be noisy spin slow and have drain problems . This is such a poor design . Try removing the drum and see if there is an article of clothing under it , mine sucked up a mans large shirt . Even if the drum seems to spin freely it still could be the problem .

I have a WhiteKnight CL43 tumble dryer. The drum will not turn without first being turned by hand before quickly closing the door. It will then continue until its time for the drum to reverse and it stops...


Not all that familiar with the Whiteknight dryer series but a dryer is a dryer and your problem sounds like it could be narrowed down to a few things. Based on your description of the problem and without knowing how much use that dryer has been subjected to, it sounds like you have a belt slipping ..or if it is configured like many other dryers..there may be a belt tensioner that came loose. In either case, the drive motor pulley spins andthe belt doesn't have enough tension or friction on the drum to rotate it. You might try cycling it without clothes to see if it spins up... if it does spin ( without assisting it) then once you add the weight of the clothes it doesn't have enough friction to spin the drum. Hope that helps !

PE235 gets stuck on draining and won't go to spin


what you have is whats called a magnetic pump it should feel jerky to rotate but should be free without locking up, this pump is designed this way to avoid little things getting blocked in it. if the pump is free from blockages and works electrically, then the pump is not a problem, the problem sounds like the motor or the motor control board pcb which is located at the side of the timer (i think on that model) first check the motor carbons for wear, the armature for signs of burning or sparking, then the module for any signs of scorching etc, difficult thing to diagnose without test equipment but you now have somewhere to start from when looking hope i have helped a little
