Washer will not go into final spin

The washing will spin through all cycles but once it clicks into final spin it will not do more than just slowly spin the clothes back and forth and makes a buzzing sound while doing this. This sound just started when the washer quit going into final spin

Hello there.

The buzzing sound it probably a coin or something stuck in the pump causing it to rattle. Also, it's probably preventing all the water from draining out causing the machine to not enter the final spin cycle, since all the water needs to drain for that to happen.

It's kind of simple to clean the pump.
All you have to do is take the 2 or 3 screws off the bottom of the kick-plate and then take the pump screen off, also known as a coin trap. Clean everything and then try to run it again. I'm almost certain this is your problem.

I get a lot of calls regarding this type of situation. Please try that and see what it does before calling a certified service technician. It can save you $120.
Oh and thanks for using fixya.com. We appreciate your query.

FRIGIDAIRE LTF2140FS1 SPIN SLOWLY


Hello friend, thanks for your post!
I understand that the spin feature on your Frigidaire washer is spinning slowly. It sounds like a potential problem with your motor control board or control board. I would recommend performing a reset and you can do that by disconnecting the power from your washer for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help correct the issue I would recommend having a professional come out. They will be able to pinpoint the cause of the issue and replace any electrical components to avoid any personal injury or future issues with your washer. -Matt

I removed the hoses and pump and found the filter in the hose leading from the washer was clogged with a shoelace, $2.35 in loose change and a few GI Joe issued M4's. :-) Once I pulled that filter out and cleaned the **** the washer runs like a champ.

Washer will not spin


Your neutral drain is not locking in.
Let the timer advance to the final spin cycle. Once there it should have about a 5 second pause and the transmission spin gears will lock in. If no pause replace the timer. If you have the pause and still no spin replace the transmission.
My bet is on the timer.

LG front load washer/ clothes still wet after final spin


The heavy jacket prevented the washer from spinning at a rapid pace, so I added a heavy bathrobe to absorb some of the water and to balance the load. The washer then spun very quickly and drained out all the water.
