Check to make sure the water is turned on. It is often something simple in this situation.

Why does my new Frigidaire washer do 6 wash-cycles (washes for approximately 4 minutes out of a 50 minute planned wash) then spins and drains?


Who installed the machine? If it is a front loader did you remove the shipping bolts? If it is installed correctly I'd say it has a bad control board.
Unplug the machine, let it set for one hour and then try it again.

Banging drum when spinning


if the drum in the washer klunks/bangs in ANY brand of washer when it is spinning, your load is off balance. stop the machine, re-distribute the wet clothes so that the weight is evenly distributed, then restar the spin. u may have to do this more than once if u did not evely distribute the weight. this is an easy one. just be sure to stop the spin soon as it starts banging. letting it bang thru an entire spin cycle could result in actual damage to the machine. some of the new machines auto shut off at an imbalance so u can correct the problem. think of spinning a top. u unevenly add weights to it then spin it again, it WILL wobble.

My Defy 600 does not drain all the water out and wont s apin. When I try to start a new cycle it wont let any water in, i suspect thats cause there is still water in the drum. Help!!!!!


hello there and welcome to fixya
It doesn't pump or spin
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
It pumps, but doesn't spin
If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:
The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and 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. You may need to replace it.
A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)
The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.
The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.
The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.
The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Try redistributing the clothes, it sounds like it thinks it is out of balance so won't spin. Also make sure it is installed level and not rocking.

My Servis M6725 washing machine gradually fills with water even when it is switched off. We have tried changing the inlet valve but it still happens.


this is very comon review
decided to buy a Service M6725 machine. I bought one from Argos 'express delivery'. Installed it in a matter of minutes and did a cleaning wash. From then on the machine refused to work. Argos kindly replaced the machine (with the same model) and all seemed fine for a couple of weeks and then for no apparent reason the spin cycle would not perform. Yesterday a Service engineer arrived to 'sort' out the problem. He told me that the no spin was because of an unbalanced load and the machine was working correctly and left me to try more washing. Same result. House full of dripping washing and an angry wife. I am replacing the machine with another brand. ...
