SOURCE: Washer spins but not enough to extract water from clothes or tub.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

SOURCE: Roper washing machine- unbalanced spin - rocking agitator

I usually stand in front of the washer and take the plams of my hands and forcefully provide a force with the heel of my hands on the side front corners and the lip comes up

Another option is to pull the washer out and remove 2 clips (usually requires quarter inch nut driver to allow the top to come up

This should allow you to get the top off to see if a spring has broken or slipped off


GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: Loud banging noise durning washing machine spin cycles.

First plug off the wall. Open the machine from behind to examine if any shock-absorbers(known as dampers) or springs have come off or broken. Your dealer could help with spares. But you could do the job yourself.

SOURCE: washer unbalanced on final spin, cannot stop the unbalance

Hi Sparky,
The reason it's out of balance is because the skate plate shoes are worn out and need to be replaced. You'll have to access the washer in order to do this. There's a video available that shows how to do it.

After you have opened up the washer you'll see that the tub is sitting on a three legged pedestal. The shoes are in between the skate plate and the top of the pedestal. Here's a picture (and part number) to illustrate...

bc62875.jpg

Do one shoe at a time by lifting the skate plate off of the pedestal about an inch or so and wedging it there (I use a hammer handle as a wedge). The shoes simply snap into place, so the old ones will have to be snapped out of place first. Use another hammer and tap the shoes out of their sockets from underneath.

NOTE! ---> When you place the new shoe into its' place DO NOT try to snap it in!!! (if you do, you'll break it) Just let it rest in it's place for now. Remove your wedge and allow the full weight of the tub to sit on it. Then move on to the next shoe and repeat.

After all 3 shoes have been replaced it's time to snap them in completely. Do this from the top of the tub. Using your body weight, press down on the tub from above on all three corners (where the shoes are located). This will apply even pressure to the top of the shoe and keep it from breaking. You should have all 3 snapped in now. Use a flashlight and look underneath to verify (you should see the tabs of the shoes poking all the way through the pedestal).

Now all that's left is to rebuild the washer cabinet and start some laundry!

SG

p.s. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but this job can be done easily within an hour and the parts only cost ~$12.00!

I have a Hitachi PAF-1260 PX washing machine. It goes through the wash cycle and drains the water but it does not spin. As a result, the clothes are still soaking wet. Can you help please. Thank you.


Just guessing but if you can select another programme that works such as rinse and spin or spin only the fault is likely to be with the controller but if the spin doesn't work on any programme I think the motor speed control is likely to be the culprit, though unfortunately these often share the same board.

One thought though, if the system thinks the tub still has water spinning cannot proceed. I am not sure what method modern machines use to tell the brain the state of water level in the tub but they used to use an air pressure sensor/switch connected to the tub by a length of small diameter hose that used to sometimes become blocked.

Hi .have a tricity bendix 1000rpm.. seems to take ages to wash.. what is the timing on a 40 degree wash and a quick cycle


In the early days of Automatic washing machines, manufacturers endeavoured to get the machines to wash rinse and spin as quickly as washing could be done in a twin tub. However the results weren't always good. These days as they don't have to compete with the twin tubs the emphasis is on clothes care and energy saving. so the wash cycle is prolonged without a lot of bashing about and because wash temperatures are very low they need a bit longer in the tub action to achieve the results. Its the heating that costs the money not the tub action. nearly all machines will take up to an hour and a half or longer to wash properly. So you need to change your wash habits to accommodate a long wash time, don't try and do two or three loads in the same day, spread them out over a couple of days. If you are tempted to buy one of the Machines that purport to do washes in half an hour be aware this only applies to items that need freshening up and not normal everyday soiled clothes.

How to spin dry


Hi there
A short history Around fifty years ago the washing machine and the spin dryer were two separate machines. After that came the twin tub, where the two machines were put into one, then we got the washing machine-front loaded. As well as the dryer. Now we have got the dryer and the washing machine combined.
My guess is that you have to push a spin button and decide which speed you want the spin.
good luck

Spinner on twin tub washing machine not spinning


I have had a manatee twin tub washing machine with spinner for two years. When I went to spin dry the first load this evening, it would turn on, but not spin. I read the above entry about another twin tub. I did the following... I unplugged the machine for 1 minute. Plugged it back in, then slowly and carefully turned the spin tub clockwise for 1/4 turn, then counter-clockwise for 1/4 turn. I cannot explain why it worked, but it did. So, try this trick before taking it apart. Good luck!

Hitachi twin tub spin dryer won't spin and pump out water if I have more than two light items in it. The washer is perfect and I love it. Does it have a belt for the spin that needs tightening or what...


you probably have a sock or some other item in the bottom of your spin tub that is blocking the flow of water out of your spin tub an that prevents the spinner from spinning properly you need a wire long enough to reach in there and remove whatever is blocking it
