Just had the same problem. Comet engineer attended and stated it is a common problem with this machine as the original electronic programmer that was fitted was too sensitive and was sensing an unbalanced load. He fitted a new programmer as the machine was less than 1 year old and the problem seems to be resolved

There are many things that can stop it from spinning....but the
first place to check is the belt. Is it loose or broken?

Wash down


Since down comforters are very light in weight, they confuse energy efficient front loader washing machines in how much water to add. Therefore, very little water is used, which results in a semi-damp comforter at the end of a wash. Pre-soaking the comforter beforehand would help, however, now the comforter weighs a ton, and the machine will vibrate like crazy during a spin cycle. It may be better to have the comforter dry cleaned.

My front loader washer gets stuck on its last spin and wont drain properly. I am trying to wash a comforter and blanket. This is the 1st time its happened. Thank you


You may to mention the brand and model of machine. Mine is an Lg, I just shut off machine. Turn it back on and then press the no spin and start, this drains the washer. You may have too much clothes in the machine.

When its on the final spin and completed clothes are still wet


The pump is mounted on the motor so the water is removed and that means the lid switch is working. I think you might have a broken drive coupling. Almost certainly it could be the coupling. This is a common failure of these machines. It can be triggered by washing a heavy load. themobilian_1495.jpgthemobilian_1496.jpgthemobilian_1497.jpgthemobilian_1498.jpgthemobilian_22.pngthemobilian_1499.jpg
That is the simple answer and should fix the problem but what IF the coupling is ok?
Then you gotta dig deeper into this machine. Let me know.

Leak from lower door section and from powder door thing.


This could be a partially or completely seized/failed pump.
Before a machine goes in to a spin cycle, it runs the pump to empty all the water out. It used to be quite common that the machine does not check all the water has gone before spinning, it just runs the pump for a set time which if the pump is okay, is long enough to empty it.
If a spin is then started with quite a lot of water left in the drum, it gets thrown everywhere including back out of the powder/conditioner draw. Also the sheer strain of spinning a large amount of water can force water through an otherwise okay door seal.
Unless you are comfortable working on the machine yourself, call an engineer.

Cabrio won't spin and has standing water


The coupling might have broken in place and will not allow the motor to do its job. It's a $7 part that goes on the motor shaft.

Wash is still wet after spin cycle


Hi!

If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician

For further assistance need your machines model no.

Thanks

Too much soap???


One way or another - you're going to have to get that comforter into a spin cycle to get the water out of it. Otherwise it won't dry out until June. If there's excess soap when the cycle finishes, run another full wash without soap. If the washer won't drain properly with the comforter inside, you have another problem altogether.

Washer won't run....


It seems as an overload issue. The machine has an overload switch to protect the motor. Take the comforter out and operate the machine,it should work fine. Good luck!
