Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Machine won't wash or spin and won't complete the cycle.

Initailly it was an intermittent problem where the washer wouldn't spin at the end of the load, but not every load. It would make the sound to start spinning but the bowl would only move a few centimetres and then stop.
Now the machine won't wash either. It will fill with water, then send the signal to the bowl to spin (to start washing) but nothing happens, only a humming sound.

SOUNDS like the motor turning bad , if you hear humming and a strange smell ? yes, you might be needing a new main motor, if you can take a look inside while the machine is ON , check the belt to see if not broken , hope this helpful AJ

GE washer won't spin


Sounds like it needs a new motor. Electric motors can develop bad spots on their coils. What happens is they begin to work intermittently or only when hit. This is the same problem with a cars starter motor. Probably a pretty easy fix, just unplug the power to the washer for safety and pull it out and get a part number off the motor assembly then order up a new motor. If you have a multimeter and are comfortable working around live AC voltage to can see if power is being sent to the motor at the power connector.

The washer will drain but not completely ..leaves a litlle bit of water in machine


Make sure the spin is working. If its not working you wouldn't know it since it spins during the middle and end of cycle.
If not check lid switch

Kenmore model # 110.23832100 Washer would drain but wouldn't spin or aggitate. Replaced coupler. Now will spin and agitate, but will not drain.


sounds like it's in the re-assembly since the water pump is directly connected to what you just did. take it apart once again and make sure all is put back right and water pump is properly seated on motor shaft.

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II, top loading washer. Upon intial start up the machine agitates. During the spin cycle, the cold water remains ON, throughout the cycle. This is leaving the clothes wet...


The timer is at fault.
During the spin cycle the timer should send intermittent power to the water valve. This activates cold to help rinse soap residue from the laundry.
If cold is continuous it means the timer is not breaking correctly.

I have a whirlpool ultimate care 2 top load washer no spin


Sounds as if the drive hub which the tub is attached to maybe free spinning. Not an expensive part but does require a special tool called a spanner wrench to remove and replace.

Spin cycle starts, speeds up, then stops spinning


This fault often occurs when something (like a small coin or a paper tissue) has blocked the drain pump!
The only way to fix this would be to get a service engineer to remove the pump and check for a blockage, unless of course you are an experienced electrician or technician and don't mind doing it yourself.

Washer motor spins but the TUB does not (intermittent)


If the motor is running and the tub is not spinning you must remove the motor and inspect the drive coupling.
One of the 2 plastic pieces could be stripped or cracked.
If the drive coupling is intact, proceed to the clutch on top of the transmission.
Replace the clutch linings.
