Hi from retired Englishman in SW France- Frid morning 11:52.

It does literally sound as if the belt is slipping! This can happen with time. I would advise purchasing a replacement belt to be fitted by a confident/competent person- as you might well be!

REMOVE POWER.
REMOVE THE BACK.

The motor and belt should be easily visible- on most front loaders they 'stare you in the face'.
The motor's support bolts will require slackening, the old belt will probably come off very easily. The new belt is likely to be quite awkward/difficult to put on as it is a tight fit. Once on the belt requires to be re-tensioned by pulling the motor FIRMLY so that the belt is quite tight- if it is not already, that is.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD A LEVER OF ANY SORT BE USED. THE ACTION COULD DAMAGE THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS.

I believe this should cure your problem.

Good luck,

John C

How much water does a 7kg front loader use?


Depends what cycle it's used on. For example "Spin" uses no water at all.
If you want to measure it, run a cycle without laundry, and mark on a piece of paper tape stuck to the porthole how far up the water level reaches. Count how many times the machine empties and refills during your chosen wash cycle. After the final spin, close the door, and slowly refill the machine via the detergent drawer from a graduated jug or watering can, until the water level reaches the mark on the porthole. Multiply the volume poured in by the number of cycles, and there's your answer - approximately.

Simpson washing machine


More info would be helpful (model? top loader/ front loader?)
If it fills then stops filling (ie. knows that it is full) yet does not turn, and no sounds etc, it is likely a motor control module or motor start capacitor or maybe PCB (If fully electronic). Does it spin if you manually turn the cycle to the spin point?

Samsung wf8750lsw front loader door wont open


Not sure if you mean when it is fully off or operating, but if you mean that once it is operating the door won't open, then the following applies...

Once a front loader wash cycle starts, the door on a front loader is physically (electronically) locked until the full cycle ends after spin dry. This is to prevent anyone opening the door and letting all the water out in the middle of the wash cycle, which a lot of people try to do to put in more clothing etc.

Hi! My 7kg Samsung J843 Front Loader Washing Machine is not spinning at all. Makes a whirring sound but no movement. Any tips?


Hi, I've had this problem before. It was a while ago but it was either a broken belt or the belt had slipped from the correct position and needed to be put back on. It was under warranty and a service tech fixed it.

Washer will not spin The washer is a frigidaire front loader model LTF2140E53. will cycle through all settings, but will not spin. Cycle ends with clothes soaked.


I have thata probelm a lot too. I have read that the controls don't sense that the door fully shut. You might try slamming it shut, jiggling the door, poking in the hole where the latch goes. When mine won;t spin, slamming and jiggling works.

Please help! My samsung 7kg J845 front loader keeps flashing UE on the error code (spin cycle) and I can't open the door. Sarah


Hi, I have the same washing machine and it flashes UE on the error code during spin cycle when I have one thing in there, or if the clothes are uneven. I usually have to wait until the lock light goes out, re-arrange the clothes and continue spin cycle. If it is just one item in there, I usually have to manually wring it out as it will keep saying error if I keep trying to spin.

UE = Unbalance Error


Laundry load is unbalanced, manually loosen any tangled laundry.
If only one item of clothing needs washing, such as a bathrobe or jeans, the final spin result might be unsatisfactory and an UE error message will be shown in the display. Unbalance error is cleared by POWER switch OFF and back ON.
