Question about LG WM2487H Front Load Washer

2 Answers

The spin cycle won't engage, the laundry tumbles, it starts to speed up and then slows back down to tumbling. I've removed some of the laundry, set it to rinse and spin and it still does the same thing. We just go this today!!!

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what you've described, there are a few possible scenarios that will cause this.


1) It could be either the shipping bolts are still in place, shown below

2) the water hoses are backwards ( it's critical for proper operation to make sure hot goes to hot and cold to cold )

3) or even you're using too much detergent (or the wrong type of detergent), you must use "HE" only in these frontload machines

4) the leveling legs/feet aren't secured proper or are uneven...

...otherwise it doesn't spin the items out very well either due to too much vibration sensed to maximize spin.

Make sure the shipping bolts are out first, i.e.

The spin cycle won't engage, - macmarkus_405.jpg


Level properly, i.e.

And use only detergent with this label, but not much is necessary.

**especially if your laundry has been washed in a top load prior to now since the items will likely still contain soap from the old washing...maybe pre-wash all your items before placing them in a actual wash cycle with detergent for the first time**

i.e.

Let me know what you find and I'll try to help you move forward from here.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

My Kenmore Elite Quiet pak 2 # 11045872402 HE3 washer doesn't go through the complete Cycle it stops when drain and spin,or doesn't Tumble through the cycle? could I have confused it by trying to keep


Spinning is prevented when the cover is open. Possibly a broken "door closed" switch is or its wires are broken. Lift the lid platform and check the switch. May be just debris preventing it from engaging. Remember, the lid and the close switch must be engaged before the control circuit will allow the high speed spin from happening. This is an essential safety feature and should never be circumvented. A high speed drum can literally pull an arm from its socket if caught so make sure it's working properly

E15 error code on hoover tumble dryer


Controls
  • The control unit on the tumble dryer will vary among different makes and models. The main purpose of the controls is to allow the user to select the drying cycle. You can choose the time and temperature setting on most units, while others allow custom settings such as moisture sensors and end-of-cycle alert signals. The controls may include a dial or a touch panel and LED screen display. Some tumble dryers allow you to independently select the appropriate time for the load you are drying and separate programs for temperature.
Motor
  • The motor inside the tumble dryer spins the basket to allow the clothes to tumble while being dried. The tumbling action allows the air to pass through the clothing to dry them faster. Heating laundry that is stagnant will likely dry the clothing on the outside while leaving damp clothing inside the pile. The constant motion, along with the heat and steam created by heating the clothing, reduces wrinkles. The motor also powers the fan that delivers the heated air to the basket of laundry. The heater can be an electrical element or gas powered.

Zanussi 1400 Front Loader: Machine washs clothes as per normal but does not drain the water and cannot go into the spin cycle. Sits there doing nothing then starts bleeping.


This is almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. While it's trying to get the water evacuated, you will probably see the machine doing a slow tumble for up to 8 minutes and you may also hear the empty pump running too.

You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (You haven

All cycles are working except the spin cycle. I have visually inspected the wiring connections and motor and dont see any obvious issues. There are no error codes and the LED lights seem to be functioning...


Because of the high spin speeds of front load washers, the doors are equipped with a latch and lock mechanism to prevent the door from being opened during the washers operation. These locks will often be actuated by a solenoid or wax motor to ensure they remain latched during the wash cycle. This model uses a two stage lock that latches the door when the load starts, and then when it is time to spin, the second lock engages to ensure the door is properly secured prior to beginning the spin. When this second lock engages, it also closes a set of switch contacts (the auxiliary door switch) telling the control board the door is closed and locked. If for some reason this switch is not closed, the washer will tumble during what would normally be the spin cycle until the entire cycle is complete.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already cleaned the drain pump filter assembly and as the door lock assembly has also been replaced so I believe that you have already checked the belt & idler pulley as well. Considering this situation the problem is with the motor that needs replacement, motor bearings are not available easily. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

It could be either the pump or a clog in the discharge hose. Take a shop vac and attach it to the discharge hose to remove the water from the machine. Remove the pump housing and run a wire down the discharge hose to check for a clog. If there is no obstructions, reattach the pump housing and remove the pump motor. Run a spin cycle and see if the pump motor turns.

Tub not spinning with load


I would suspect a faulty motor control board. not much you can do to test it unfortunately, aside to replacing it and see if that fixes the problem, but definitely the best guess. Also known as a speed board.

Kenmore 44042 - No spin cycle


The front load washers are supported by springs on the top and shocks on the bottom.  More than likely you broke a spring on the top or cracked one of the shock mounts which causes and unbalanced load all the time.  Will it go through a spin cycle with no clothes is it?
