Question about Washing Machines
Your machine won't spin because it can't drain.
You probably have a blocked drain hose or a faulty/blocked pump.
If you put the drain hose below the water level in the machine it may run by gravity. If it does flow this way it would show that the hose is not blocked (completely).
Make sure the machine is empty before continuing.
NOTE! Unplug machine from power supply!!
There is probably a small cover near where the drain comes out of the machine. Unscrew this cover and you will expose the pump filter, which may be (partially) blocked. Check for coins or similar which may be jamming the impeller blades..
NOTE! Any water in the machine will flow from here!!
TIP! Lean the machine forward to help contain the last of the water in the tub.
If the drain hose is clear and the pump is still not draining the machine you may have a failed pump motor.
Pump motor replacement is not a big job for an experienced tech.
