Wont spin or drain


Does the machine agitate if so this eliminates the motor coupling could be a bad timer place unit in spin if motor hums then power going to motor eliminates this check the drain pump it is white and attaches to the motor with 2 spring clips if there is something stuck in it or a bad bearing won't drain if a washer cannot drain it will not spin hope this helps.

My washer will not spin, it sounds like it's trying to spin but it won't spin and if i turn the barrell by hand it spins so it's not frozen or anything. Any suggestions?


Hi mwilczewsk,

I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

After this, the Spin cycle will run, after the drainage procedure. If it does not, then you may need to replace the Drain Motor. Which is a easy task.

Kind Regards :-)

WASHER WILL WASH ON ALL CYCLES, BUT WILL NOT DRAIN OR SPIN ON EITHER CYCLE


If the timer advances normally thru the spin and drain steps of the cycle you selected, than the problem that would cause neither spinning or draining, is the wash motor is not reversing. The motors is a two direction motor. It spins clockwise for normal agitation, but counterclockwise to engage the wash drum clutch and operate the drain pump. I would ask you to check for motor sounds at all during the spin and drain cycles. The pump reversing in the spin or drain cycles can be a function of the machine's lid safety switch, or if not the motor switch or timer contacts. The lid switch is first thing to check here, for sure! If the machine seems to stop running when it comes time to drain or spin, the lid switch is your best bet!

Hope this helps.

I have a Roper ( RAS7133RQ4 ) washer It will not spin. It does everything else. Can you help??


You say it doesn't spin. Does this mean it also doesn't drain? If it doesn't spin or drain, then you probably have a bad lid switch, if it doesn't spin but does drain, then your problem is in your tub drive clutch.

Hope this helps

Ill try,
first off its normal for water to spray in during the final spin( its a spray rinse), as far as the water coming back into your machine after the final spin stops, you have an issue with oyour drain, i would assume that the drain hose is NOT going into a stand pipe"open drain", but instead clamped to another hose leading outside or to a drywell, in which case youll need to install a "one way check valve". whats happening is after the final spin is done al;l the waterin the drain line is reurning back formn the drain hose.Proper insstallation will cure this.
lastly its hard to describe"slower than usual spin" it will progressivly spin faster as moire water is removed form the machine, i wqould rectify the drain issue before i concern my self with this( and make sure you not selecting a :gentle spin" option of coarse... hope this is helpful to you!

My Kenmore 98702 washer Fills and agitates as expected but stops at the end of cycle failing to drain or spin

Spin Cycle


HP, sounds like your washer is not going through the neutral drain. After agitation the tub should drain for about 90 seconds before going into spin. You can verify this by doing a load with the lid up and holding the lid switch down with a small screwdriver. If it fails to go into the neutral drain, it's a gearcase problem and should be covered under warranty for 5 years. If it does go into the neutral drain, then it's another issue such as the pump or drain hose....Catriver..post back
