My washer is not spinning clothes dry and the end of the cycle. Everything is soaking wet, what can I do?


is the pump free to spin? when the pump operates(when it spins) is the water getting out? something like a sock may have got past the drum into pipe that joins to pump allowing only some water to escape

Its spinning but the water is not draining away and the clothes are still wringing wet


This usually indicated a problem with the pump. There is a belt which turns the agitator, spins the drum, and turns the pump, which is what removes the water. Since the agitator works and the drum spins, the pump is probably faulty.

Zanussi fs1455w not spinning fast under load. Without anything in the drum it spins fine??? Tried all speeds with the same result. Any ideas???


May be not pumping efficently. when the spin starts the initial rush of water floods into the drum from the clothes a build up of water under the drum causes a braking action on the drum and slow spin speed.. look for partial blockage in pump chamber hoses or under sink if a spigot connection. probably not the belt as it would throw off a loose belt. Check it anyway. if non of these check carbon brushes they may on the verge of failure.

When i spin wash tub wigth my hand i can hear lots of water still in the machine under neath the wash basin


That is becouse most washing machines are made up of an inside drum where your clothes are washed and an outside durm that catches the water when the washer spins the water out of the washed clothes. A pump is connected to the bottom of the outside drum. If the pump fails, the water would not get pumped to the drain and would collect in the outside drum.

High speed drum rinse ..drum not spinning during rinse cycle


Clean out coin collector thoroughly. Replace drain pump if necessary. Water will drain if you can place drain hose on floor and let water siphon out.

Washer Does Not Spin!


You either need a new pump or the pump is blocked, the washer will not spin whilst there is water in the drum.
