Having problems with my kenmore he2 plus front loader washing machine on spin cycle....we've removed all panels and check wire connections and drained both the front and back drain. Ran the machine on...


The two most common reasons the washer won't spin with a load is either the belt needs to be replaced (pretty cheap to fix) or the transmission is going on it (may as well buy a new machine). There are other less common problems, depending on your model. I would suggest calling a repairman who deals with all makes of washers, rather than the Sears repairman, unless it is under warranty. My front loading Kenmore had a problem and the Sears guy tried to tell me I was overloading the machine. He charged me a fortune and did nothing. Called an all makes repairman and he found a baby sock had made it's way to the drain and was clogging it.

Washer fills with water but doesn't begin to agitate to wash. It also drains but doesn't spin when we set the dial to that


Your agitator pindle. has come loose From the spline. Try to lift up on the agitator. If it lifts off the spindle easily then it has worn out the spline. That is what connects the agitator to the s

Filling with water then does not finish cycle


There should be a sensor on the door that tells it the door is shut. Check that this is being pressed when the door is shut. You should see it where the doormeets the washer and can use something to press it. Put your washing in spin cycle and press it if it starts spinning there is your problem( make sure the washer is empty ). If it still doesn't work you will most likely need a repairman.

Spin cycle doesn't work


bad drain pump or clogged drain line. some units have drain trap you can clean,if so you can clean it out yourself but will make a huge mess if you don't pinch close the drain hose between the tub and pump.

Hi our Bosch exxcel washing machine has stopped spinning and doesn't reach the end of its cycle most of the time. If it does the washing is still soaking and needs a new rinse and spin cycle after....


Hi gillsteer,

I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

After this, the Spin cycle will run, after the drainage procedure. If it does not, then you may need to replace the Drain Motor. Which is a easy task.

Kind Regards :-)

Washer won't finish the cycle because of imbalance during spin. It just shuts down, but I have time left over. I need to cancel the wash cycle in order to run the spin only cycle. ATF8000FG


I called a repairman since it had 5 more days under warranty. The problem was the drain tube from the washer into the drain was pushed too far down into the drain pipe. He did have an error message that it was taking to long to fill. Well no wonder, it was siphoning out the water as it drained.
Seems to have fixed the problem.

Waher wont spin


first, if it's under warranty, have them service it, if not then....

the maytags work mainly on belts with a forward and reverse on the motor. forward washes, reverse drains and starts spin cycle. if the motor does reverse and drains the water, then it's probably the transmission of the washer. these washers have 10 years parts on the transmission, so I would have a service repairman come out and fix it. you'd only pay for the labor and the transmission would be free.
