    lg holding water and not spinning

  • tfdrury Apr 21, 2009

    I have an older Hotpoint washing machine model # WLW3400SBLWH. It stopped spinning last week. I tipped it over and checked the pulley is free, the belt is still intacked and everything moves freely. The door switch works fine also. When the machine is asked to spin or swish you can hear the motor turn on, but it doesn't engage. Can anyone help me figure this out?

Open and close lid, listen for 'clicking' sound. If no 'clicking' sound, replace lid switch.
If you have a hidden lid switch (no visible hole around the top where the lid closes) try tightening the screws on the lid hinges.

Standing water in base of washing machine


Is it a front load machine? If so, remove the kick plate under the door and there should be a plastic filter that screws in on your right (approx 2"-3" in diameter). You'll need a catch pan that's lower than the bottom edge of the filter cap, as water will flow out of it when removed. I had one that would occasionally eat a sock or other small article of clothing, stopping up the drain filter and causing the tub to hold water. The added weight of the water causes the tub to not turn at the RPMs needed, and sometimes not at all. Let me know if this helps.

The water is not draining out and the washing machine is not spinning the water out.


Hi,
If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

Is leaking water at the back and running in the floor the hoses are tight drain pipe is in right


Here's what I've seen. Water will be full, machine goes to spin/drain and expects the water to be pumped out as predicted. If pump is clogged, the pump cannnot pump out water quickly enough and the spinning causes the water to spill over the back of the tub, between the tub and balance ring. The balance ring is never sealed tightly to the tub so water will get through. Fill the basket with water, extra high, hold lid switch down, and see if it drains out fast enough so water doesn't spin out. If this is the case, pull pump, dislodge debris.

My machine seems to skip the spin cycle.we have replaced the dial and its still not working.


What you have is a worn thrust bearing, a common failure on these machines. When the motor reverses for spin, the cam actuator on the main drive pulley release the brake which is holding the tub still for agitation. If the tub was allowed to move freely during the wash cycle the clothes would end up knotted, tangled, and not too nice. Whilst the motor is turning in the direction of agitate the water remains in the washer. For spin, the motor comes to a screeching halt, and starts in the opposite direction, this makes the pump discharge the water and the tub begin to spin,that is IF the brake gets released. I found the most marvelous repair pictorial on replacing one of these HERE

The washer's springs configuration


They are hooked from the bottom frame to the carriage that holds the tub. Not sure of the model you have but most Whirlpool (They make kenmore, roper, magic chef and others) There is a ring around the top of the outer tub that is filled with water from the factory. Make sure it still has water inside. It acts as a damper helping to balanced the tub also.

Kenmore Elite Top Load does not spin on spin cycle


Hi, If the inner tub has dropped down, you will need to change the block that holds the tub to the shaft. Remove the agitator cap and then use a 7/16" socket to remove the bolt holding the agitator in.
Lift the agitator out and look at the block holding the inner tub. There should be two slots with two tabs sticking up inside them. You will probably see metal shaving as well.
If this is what you see, please let me know and I can direct you on further repair.

Thanks

Eco smart won't drain, smells hot


hi
you commented on hearing water in the machine after the wash , i know that f&p spin bowls have a liquid inside the actual spin bowl system i think it aids in the spin operation of the machine, but if you had something in the drain network then that will stop the machine from emptingout as it all works on a time basis check and see that you are not getting any leaks from the bottom of the machime as your new pump won't last long if it gets wet also if there is water leaking that can be the main seal on the motor shaft failing
cheers grant
