    It will agitate but will not spin. It does not vibrate, but that may be because it won't spin.

    Do you hear a click when you close the lid? Most top load washers will not spin unless they "think" the lid is closed. If you don't hear the click you may have a bad/ loose lid switch. Also do you know what brand/ model it is?

    Is it spinning? Some defects will cause it only to drain and not spin. Is it vibrating considerably?

We have not heard back on this in about a week. I'm presuming It's been repaired?

My washing machine won't go to high speed spin to remove water from clothes.


Possible there is no switching for the cycle from the controller or there is speed limited due to sensor action for vibration. Check the leveling of the machine, if not use rubber footing to hold the machine steady.
Also check the drives for friction , if so reset and lubricate.

Fisher and paykel model no GW611 washes but won't spin nor lid locks


Sounds like the lid lock has gone bad. Check the wire connections to it and if you should need to order the lock, here is their website.

Washing machine won't drain

When your washing machine won't drain, it could be as simple as a kinked hose or as complicated as a faulty impeller on the pump. Overloading your washing machine can cause items to be swept into the space between the inner and outer tub, leading to clogs in the drain hose or pump. These clogs may be the reason for why your washing machine won't drain. Here are some steps to help you determine the problem and solution:

1. Pinched hose: Is the drain hose at the back of the washer been flattened or twisted in any area? A pinched hose could prevent the water from draining thoroughly. Gently straighten the hose, and make sure there is sufficient room between the back of the washing machine and the wall to prevent a repeat of the problem.

2. Clogged drain hose or pump:
Does the drum spin normally, but the washing machine won't drain the water? Sometimes a piece of clothing, money, fabric or other debris gets into the water between the inner and outer tub. It may then make its way into a drain hose or even into the pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. Call a repair professional for help.

3. Faulty timer: Does your machine fill with water and begin agitating, but the cycle never advances far enough to allow the water to drain? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. Arrange for washing machine repair service.

4. Worn or loose belts: Are clothes still soaked at the end of a wash, even though the washing machine appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. This is a job for the pros.

5. Faulty or jammed internal impeller on pump: When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? The internal impeller that moves the water through the drain pump may be faulty or jammed. A grinding or grating sound is almost always an indication of a coin, button or other object colliding with the impeller. Have a washing machine repair expert determine if the impeller is jammed and can be cleared, or if the pump needs to be replaced.

6. Pump failure: Is your washing machine more than 7 years old? Your pump may simply have worn out. Even if it sounds as though it is running, the pump may not be working well enough to draw the water out of the machine. Replacement parts for pumps are generally unavailable. A new pump may be necessary.

417-44052400 Fills with water, washes, drains/spins then comes to a stop. If I did the diagnostics right it indicates E11? Anybody else have this problem?


e11 is a water problem filling to slow,you could have a problem with your cold water fill line,clogged sediment in the valve or something like that,when it goes into rinse the machine uses cold water so the clothes won't wrinkle and it sounds like it's filling to slow.
