    Well we are not on the same machine apparently.
    This washer is direct drive and doesn't have a lint trap.
    I did clean from the pump to the sink,
    It seemed a touch better as I did find some lint in the hose.
    It still isn't completing the spin cycle especially if it has more than three bath towels
    in the washer. The weight of the load makes a difference.
    Also not sure if related it sometimes goes thru entire normal cycle then it continues
    to the next cycle without stopping. In other words it washes twice.

    Thank You

Check the drive block and its nut.Tighten the nut and check. If its checked ok then check the clutch. Also check the pump if its very old replace the pump and check.Also check the timer knob on the machine.worn direct drive coupler.Also check the transmission shaft.

Hello,

There two ways of solving this type of problem seen them below

please put off all for of power supply connected to the washer (SAFETY FIRST)

check the belt it may have come off or broke,if OK suspect you need new brushes in the motor. And this

If your washer is indeed a , than the not spinning is directly related to the unit not draining.

These machines by design cannot spin if the drain is inadequate.

Here is the step in resolving the problem, you need to access the drain pump/filter to clean it.

To reach the filter and clean it...

1) Open the small square plastic door at the right bottom of the washer.

2) Via the small hose drain any access water from the pump...this is where a wet/dry shop-vac comes in handy, or a shallow pan with a few towels works as well.

3) Then turn the pump insert/button trap counter clock-wise and pull out. Clean the trap out thoroughly running it under hot water and mild soap or your washer detergent and inspect inside the pump for any other foreign objects/obstructions.

4) Re-install the lint trap insuring it is good and snug/tight.
after all to test run the drain to see if hose short rinse spin cycle to see if drain ok

Let me know how you work out as comment .

Thank you and for using fixya.

SOURCE: SPIN CYCLE WON"T WORK ON WASHING MACHINE...HELP!

It appears your lid switch has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hello,

I would suspect the water inlet valve as being the problem,if it drains the water and spins the lid switch is going to be good.The thing exclusive to rinse cycles is that they only fill with cold water,and that is what i suspect the problem being is that it's not filling with cold water on the rinse cycle because of a bad water inlet valve.

Spin cycle will not work on siemens xlm 1400 and filter has been cleaned what to do


If the spin cycle is not working, it could be several things. How is it not working? If it won't do anything, i.e. doesn't turn, then I would suspect the transmission since the spin cycle is the high side of the transmission. If it spins but does not take the water out of the unit, then I would suspect, either the pump or the timer.

Good luck and have a great day!

Will not fill with water but works on spin cycle


If your washer won't fill with water, but works in the spin cycle then the washer is sensing that water is in the tub. If there isn't water in the tub, then it is probably a sensor. If there is water but the spin cycle doesn't get it out, then look at the pump or control board.

The timer is not allowing a cycle stop for the neutral pack to drop. Replace the timer and you should be in good shape. The whistling sound is likely something in the pump.

Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:


With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.
