Hi.

Most spin problems are consequence of drain system faults.

The first part to check is drain system. Check the drain hose at the back and the drain filter attached to the pump. See article at the end for more detail.

Most machines' timer boards do an additional check on the lid switch before starting the spin part of the cycle. If the lid lock light is flashing and the machine does not spin the lid switch is probably defective.

The lid switch is tested jumping its contacts or reading Ohms at switch terminal. A two-terminals switch must read continuity (low impedance) when door is closed and must read open (infinity of Ohms) when door is open. If the switch is a three contacts, the third contact is called "heater". In that case there must be continuity between the three contacts with lid closed. If the model instead of a simple switch uses a wax motor, then the lock cannot be tested by jumping contacts. The lock motor must be tested reading Ohms and checking that impedance is the same as indicated in service manual.

If lid switch and drain system are OK, then the pressure switch must be tested.The pressure switch detects the water level and among other things determines when to advance the cycle to spin.

If all the above is OK, then the motor and motor control unit (if present) must be tested.

Washer will not spin or completely drain


you could have problem with door lock. or lid switch. this part senses if the door is close.
if it is not functioning, it would interpret it as an open door and will not spin.will not drain either.

Sears 110.23812100 washer leaks when spinning


There is a pause after the pump out that shift the tranmission into spin also if you open the lid the unit will go into spin before it pumps out completely . They have since fixed this issue...The newer models work offf the pressure switch to tell the unit when to go into spin only after the water level switch is open telling the machine there is no water left in the unit

Door Lock Clicks/Makes noises Washer does not agitate/spin


Sounds like very worn motor brushes to me, as its trying to turn the drum but has'nt the power needed to maintain any momentum,and the blinking door light is because of the bad cotact from brushes to motor.About £20 for a set of brushes or get an engineer to fit new brushes,but get a price first.
