If you tilt back the washer you can look under it and see if your belt is ok.Also spin the pulleys by hand 1 at a time and see if you can isolate the sound. Please Rate this solution !

Sounds like your timer is going out. Turn it to the spin cycle and see if it'll spin. If not jiggle the timer handle and see if that does it. If it works after jiggling the handle then you need a new timer which can be expensive. Or on the cheaper side it could also be a lid switch but sound more like a timer. Check the lid switch also.

Kenmore washer not draining,spin drying


if you can hear the motor running with a loud ticking noise you probably need a drive coupler. if it stops dead and nothing happens you probably need a lid switch.

Waher will not go into spin cycle. It makes a buzzing noise and will not spin.


it's most likely your timer....u can get the machine to spin out your clothes by pushing the timer in and pulling it back out. this resets the motor and makes it turn backwards. it's a pain to do this because you have to keep an eye on the time. this will get you through until you change the timer.

WHDRR418G1WW WASHER WON'T AGITATE OR SPIN, NOT MAKING NOISES. FILLS AND DRAINS FINE.


sounds like you have a broken lid switch on the washer, maybe someone slammed the door or placed or stood on top of the washer, a broken lid switch won't allow washer to go into spin mode is a safety device so if is on spin cycle an someone sticks their hand it the machine stops an not breaks your hand.

broken lid swtich

good luck leave some feedback thanks!

Roper RAX4232KQ0 maker loud noise at spin cycle and then stops


There are a few things that can go wrong, If the washer doesn't adgitate or spin then probably the coupler is broken, lean the washer back and look under the machine between the motor and transmission you will find the coupler. (very common)

Coupler Part# 285753A $22.95

If its agitating but not spinning, check the lid switch, (easy check just listen for the click when you shut the lid, Or you can bypass it with a jumper wire under the console there are only 2 screw that hold the console down they are philips and either located in the front lower corners or the back lower corners)

Lid switch Part# 3949247 $42.95

If lid switch is good and the motor still doesnt run you might have a bad timer (RARE)
Timer Part# 3954563 $95.95

If you can hear the motor running but its not spinning and you have rulled out the coupler then your probably looking at a clutch (common problem) either the clutch isnt grabbing or the brake isnt releasing both problems solved with the clutch kit

Clutch kit Part# 285785 $44.95

Worst case your looking at a transmission, (uncommon) to rule out, make sure its agitating, then put washer in spin cycle. look under the washer to see if the clutch bell is spinning. if its not then you will need a transmission.

Trans Part# 3360629 $172.95

if its making loud noises when it stops spinnig then the block is bad.

Block Part# 389140 $14.95

Dear Langley,

please do the following checks.

This may be a spin problem or a drain problem
Drain:
  • Make sure the drain line is clear
  • Check the drain hose for a partial blockage
  • Inspect the water pump
Spin:
  • Test the lid switch
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the centrifugal switch
  • Test the water level switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission

please rate this solution.Thank You Langley
