The motor is not reversing. It rotates one direction to agitate and reverses to spin. Probable causes are:

1. Motor or motor switch
2. Loose or broken wire on the motor switch.
3. Timer assy / terminals or wiring between the timer and the motor switch.
If your not hearing even a buzz when spin is selected It will be one of the 3 things above.

Just for grins give the wash / spin speed selector buttons a few cycles between fast and slow. I doubt this is the problem but it is worth a try.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My Magtag Centennial washer won't spin


This washer shouldn't do anything unless the lid is locked. When you start a cycle, does it lock? After drain, does it unlock the lid right away? There is a manual inside the cabinet that will tell you how to get into diagnostic mode to check for error codes and run the machine through it's functions

My magtag 5000 series washer is flashing error code F21, It was in the middle of a wash cycle and now the door is locked and it won't open. How do I at least get the door open. I have unplugged the


Unplug the washer. Then plug it back in and press the button that turns it off. This should unlock the door. Same thing happened on mine and there was a kink in the drain hose. Once I unkinked the hose, unplugged it, plugged it back in, turned it off, then I was able to run a drain & spin cycle to get the water out of the load that was in the washer. I then ran a full wash cycle (they'd gotten stuck in the first drain & spin cycle of a wash) and everything seems to be fine now.

The washer drum wont spin.


If your washer does not drain you need to check this parts.
  1. Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  2. Test the timer control
  3. Test the lid switch(some models)
  4. Inspect the water pump
  5. Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
  6. Inspect the motor coupler

LOAD WONT FINISH KEEPS SAYING DC


If the clutch fails the first thing noticed is a UC or DC error displayed and there is no drain or spin.
If you are seeing the above error and having a problem with spin and drain then the most likely cause of this is the clutch.

The clutch fails to lock down the spinners and the basket is unable to go into spin and without a 90 RPM there is no drain.

Replace the clutch.
