Hi,
This because the belt have become loose.As when spinning the speed goes up and the belt starts to slip off,so it seems to be the washing machine shuts off.Change the belt with correct size and this problem will be ok.
Thank you

We have an Ultima washing machine and creases the cloths very badly any suggestions please


The amount of creasing you will get is directly related to the speed you select for the final spin dry cycle and the spin after the first wash cycle which occurs prior to the rinse cycle. The higher the speed and the longer it goes for the more the clothes will crease.

Experiment with different spin speeds on your machine for clothing that is subject to the creasing problem. Also do not put too many items in the machine for a wash as many people do as this will contribute to creasing. Always under load your machine for every wash cycle.

Spin drying is a compromise between creasing and maximum water removal. If you want less creasing you will need to select a more gentle spin dry speed but you will also have the clothes coming out of the machine with a higher water content and they will take a bit longer to dry. The spin time on the program may also be shorter.

In my own machines I use a gentle wash and spin cycle for all clothing that I don't want heavily creased. Running it on a wash cycle with a high and longer spin speed when the machine is spinning the clothes after the initial wash, and then again after the final rinse, will thoroughly crease the clothes every time.

Also bear in mind that different fabrics that are suitable for machine washing will perform differently and some are just too subject to creasing even if you use the most gentle wash, rinse and spin cycle. Hence you can take 2 different 100% cotton fabrics out of a machine and hang them to dry and one will be almost crease free and the other will be thoroughly creased. With these fabrics that are just very subject to wash creasing, it is better to hand wash and rinse them. Then after rinsing drip dry them or put them in the machine and spin them for 1 -2 minutes maximum just to get some of the water out and hang dry them.

The fill switch may have failed or the tube to it broke. Anyway, the machine probably is too full of water for it to start to spin out, so it slips on the belt and that makes noise.
The machine is going to be very heavy if it is overfull, but try to let some water out. Maybe you can just lower the drain hose way down into a bucket and get some water out of it. Once it's low enough, it may be able to pump out the rest. Then you can find out about the fill switch.
If it's not overfull, then some hose came loose or broke.

Hi.I have a Gentle Annie that starts and stops filling with water


It is most likely the lid switch. The switch sits in a plastic bracket which has a lever coming down behind the tank.

If the tank sways and hits that lever, it cuts off the cycle as a safety measure. When the switch is faulty or more often when the plastic bracket breaks, you get this symptom.

Let me know if you need more assistance.
