Remove the 2 front panel screws..then pull the bottom of the front panel to you and then grasp the sides of the panel tilting it our to about 35 degrees and the front panel comes off.
Reach down and push the motor toward the center of the washer from the left corner and then let go. It should slide / glide back to the original position. There are 4 neopreme gliders in the motor mount base. Usually one or more of them cracks / break over time and the end result is a slow spin.

This is the reair kit for the motor glides:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=4023752&pn_=2-5000

You have to remove the motor pulley and then the motor to change these glides. (No Power to washer of course) You can leave the motor wires connected and just lay the motor on the inside washer base. The motor glide assy has to be separated from the motor to change the glides. Use the lubricant in the kits.on the motor mount and glides.

Note the break down of your washer base parts here:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=26850

There is more that we could check but... until you check the motor glides I will not elaborate. On older units this less than $10.00 parts kit most often corrects the problem. I would much rather go step by step because we can inflict outer problems by not following tedious repairs procedures for the spin drive components..

You should check / replace the belts on your washer. They are items 18 and 19 of this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=26850&diagram_id=28437654#d28437654

You can save on belts by ordering this set:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=4011179

Not that to install the front panel you must tilt the bottom toward you about 30 degrees and latch the clips in the top panel then close and secure the front panel with the 2 screws.

I will watch for any responses.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Have you changed the Belts on the Washer.....

Pump Belt Part Number: PS2018556
Drive Belt Part Number: PS2018557
And you are right if the washer doesn't spin out off of the water it will take a long time for the Dryer to do its Job.....

Hi We have a miele condensor dryer. It is working fine except that you have to put clothes through twice to dry. It seems to cut short the drying process and then you need to put the machine back on...


The first thing you need to check is your vent system. If your dryer vent is clogged with lint, the dryer has a hard time expelling the moisture.
Then, if the vent is clean, try using a timed drying cycle instead of a sensor cycle. If your clothes get dry using the timed cycle, then you might have a sensor problem.
Also, make sure your wash machine is properly spinning out the clothes. I saw that once before where the customer thought the problem was with the dryer, but it ended up being their wash machine's ATC switch adding water at the end of the spin cycle.

Good luck!

Takes to long to dry clothes


after checking and replacing the vent going outside still the air was not venting and inside my drier everything was wet although the air was hot. After removing the rear panel i saw the blower belt disconnected. it took me some time to get the belt on but everything is ok and the air is venting and clothes getting dried. Also note that the little pulley came off its positio too.

My dryer is warm inside and there ia good airflow out the vent and the dryer has been taken apart and "de-linted' how come it is still dripping water from the door and it takes a long time to dry?


I hate to say this but I would look at your washer to see if the "spin cycle" is working, the clothes are way to wet to be in a dryer (electric or gas.) If your washer is working correctly the clothes should be barely damp when the spin cycle is complete. Please check that first! Good Luck!

It really sounds like your washing machine is not spinning the clothes out enough. Have they been wetter than usual lately? The dryer could just be struggling to keep up with the heavier / wetter load as there is no reason for it to create moisture on it's own.

Whirlpool dryer is not drying properly. Have to go through a couple of cycles to dry clothes.


2 things are needed to dry clothes. 1 is good air flow. Check to make sure that the dryer vent is not clogged or partially clogged with lint. Also make sure there are no kinks in the vent hose. With the dryer running you should feel good air flow blowing out of the outside house vent. The 2nd thing a dryer needs heat. Check to see that the dryer feels warm to hot when you reach in to tough the clothes. It is possible that the heat element has partially failed. Another thing to investigate is how well the laundry machine is spinning out the water in the spin cycle. This spin cycle is used to get as much water out as possible prior to placing the clothes in the dryer. The wetter the clothes when they come out of the laundry, the longer it takes to dry them.

Spinning fast and furious, just doesn't wring clothes dry


It sounds like you need a water pump!
See if it's pumping water next time you do load by looking at the discharge hose going to the drainage pipe and get back to me!

Clothes still wet aftre drying cycle over


It sounds as if the wash cycle isn't terminated by pumping the rinse water out and spinning to rid the clothing of most of the water.
Most dryers sense moisture but I think they all will have a maximum run-time to prevent possible fires if the programmer fails to shut them down at the end of the drying cycle.
I would watch the machine and when it started the drying cycle, I would shut it off and check for surplus water that hadn't been pumped out as it should have been.

Washer won't spin dry clothes

Broken washer/dryer


This sounds like a motor control board is faulty. Please load a couple of towels in the machine run it. Watch the machine as it goes through its' cycles.

1. Do the towels tumble when the machine is washing ?
2. When it begins to spin, does it spin one way at a fast pace or does it spin one way and then the other ?

Answering these two questions will help in troubleshooting your problem.

Tumble dryer not working


I managed to solve the problem the following way: I noticed that if you unplug the Sensor-NTC(part nimber 154431 https://www.bosch-eshop.com/eshop(bD1lbiZjPTAwOQ==)/bosch/gb/prodp.htm?prod=WET2820GB%2f13 ) that controls temperature of air in the air channel, the drying cycle runs as you describe above. So this circute was checked up to the power module. Contacts of the Sensors plug were tightened; I think this solved the problem; resistance of the sensor checked. It must be 4.8K at 25 degree C. and decrease when temperature increases. I dipped the sensor in a glass with hot water.
