SOURCE: washer won't final spin

After charging me $275 to change the water pump, the repairman said I needed a new computer board for another $160. I went & bought a new washer - this time a regular top loader mechanical washer with no computer. The repairman said computerized washers & front loaders in particular have lots of problems. He said top loader Whirlpools have the least problems.

SOURCE: washer will not spin

I have thata probelm a lot too. I have read that the controls don't sense that the door fully shut. You might try slamming it shut, jiggling the door, poking in the hole where the latch goes. When mine won;t spin, slamming and jiggling works.

SOURCE: Clothes still wet after final spin

There is a water pump in the machine which pumps the water out of the outer tub and into the drain, after the wash and rinse cycles.
It is possible that this pump isn't working properly. I think if it weren't working at all, you wouldn't be able to get beyond the wash cycle.

It has been my experience that small articles of clothing may get washed or spun out of the inner tub and into the area around the pump pick up, thus partially blocking the flow to the pump.
It's also possible that the drain hose from the pump to the drain may be partially clogged.
It is also possible that the pump doesn't run sufficiently long to get all of the water out because its' motor gets hot and shuts down or because of a problem in the control mechanism which manages the the starting and run time of the pump.

First, I would unplug the washer from the wall outlet and probe under the inner tub, or possibly remove the tub to see that there is no blockage from clothing.
It's also possible that things left in clothing pockets like paper clips, small plastic items, etc. can get into the pump and lock up the impeller.
If you're sure it isn't blocked you can then run a "short cycle", no load and water only, and watch to see how much water comes out of the discharge hose where it's hung on the drain pipe.
It should gush out, and tub should be free of standing water prior to the start of the first rinse cycle.
If it does not, then you'll have to access the pump and clear it of obstructions or replace it, if defective.

As it drains, it should start spinning slowly, then speed up as it drains; the final portion of the spin cycle is very fast.
Essentially, the spinning tub wrings out the clothes using centrifugal force.

With the water remaining in the bottom of the tub, it would appear that it is:
a) not spinning long enough, or
b) there is something preventing all the water from getting out in the time allotted by the timer to perform this task.


A fair handy man can get to pump either from the rear of the machine with back plate off, or by removing the cabinet cover from the frame, depending on the model of the the machine.

As always - before attempting any repair, UNPLUG THE UNIT!



When clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:
If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.
If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.

Spin cycle
If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.
Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning
If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve
Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Washer fills with water when not in use. Doesn't completely drain and spin cloths, and I get an E10 error code


Hello Lahoma, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Frigidaire washer fills with water, will not drain completely, and is flashing an "E10" error code. The error code stands for your washer fill time is too long. This could be an issue with your water valve, main control, or water pressure. You should check to make sure that your water flow is normal and that your water line is not restricted. This could cause an issue with the way water is distributed within your washer. The water pressure coming into your washer should be at 30 PSI. You can also clear out any false error codes by performing a reset on your washer. In order to reset your washer you need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. If this does not help resolve your issue I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for a proper diagnosis to be completed. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

My kenmore front loader wont spin fast. it will spin when the clothes are washing slowly but wont spin fast to get rid of the water so clothes stay soaking wet.


Check your drain and make sure it isn't plugged. If ok then remove the bottom panel on the front of the machine. Under it is the washer pump. The pump is either clogged or bad. The washer will not go into a full spin when the water isn't draining properly.

I purchased an LG front loader washer last year in October, Luckily I purchased the extended warrenty. I had to have a repair man come out as I was stumped too. I had washed some rugs in there and it plugged up the pump. The repair man told my husband that the inlet is very small and there are lots of things that could plug the pumps up. If you are handy could tackle this but I think it is best to call someone. My husband is handy at fixing just about anything and he told me to take my rugs to the laudry mat. :(

Will not spin, clothes are soaking wet.


Are you sure washer is level? I solved our problem that simple and I had worked on solving it for weeks until I double checked the level and found it a little off. Now it works wonderfully.

Washer won't drain or spin


top loader ??? or front loader??? if top loader you have broken your lid switch, will fill, agitate, but when it comes to drain/spin for safety reasons if the unit doent recognize the lid closed it will not advance...if yo have a front loader then i would suspect that something has gotten into the pump assy and preventing drainiing of water therefore will not spin
