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

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

Our hoover ultra care 1300 large load washing machine spin fault


The most common cause of machines stopping mid cycle is not draining. Your machine should have a filter behind the kick plate at the bottom.
If this is not the case please post back for further assistance.

Lg washing machine wft855a top loader


Following up my comment from yesterday, I took the machine apart and discovered that the black rubber cover on the valve that releases the cold water had perished and cracked, and wasn't opening properly.
I tested the hot and cold solenoids and everything checked out ok. Was just the cold valve sticking.
The wash cycle was working because I was using hot/warm water. As the rinse cycle needs cold water to get started, it was not working and the rinse and spin cycles wouldn't complete.
I have swapped the valves over for now (put the working hot one on the cold side and am using cold water only). It's working while I order a replacement...
