It fills with water, but won't spin to wash the clothes

    It is Kenmore HE4t front loading. As the wash begins, the water shoots out, but then it doesn't spin to "stir" it up. The water drains, but no spin even for the spinning cycle.
    It did show an error code of which I have forgotten.

Without knowing what brand of washer, I would bet that it has a broken lid switch
These can fail and still look good from above but will not allow the machine to
spin out if they are broken. The model and serial number should be under the back
edge of the lid. Make sure to unplug before servicing. Hope this was helpful.

    If you are able to open the door after it drains, check the drum for resistance when trying to
    turn it manually, if it turns freely then you may have a broken belt. You will need the model
    number inside the door which begins with 110. to get a replacement.

    It turns freely, I will get the belt. Now how do I change the belt? And thanks for your help!

    The ones I service are the older frigidaire style, at the risk of sounding foolish, I am not sure
    how this version comes apart.

Ge washing machine fills up with water on spin cycle


Sounds like the timer is screwed... Sending out the wrong signals and the dryer is doing the rinse cycle when it should just be the spin cycle. Do t know what your timer looks like in that washer but most now days look like the picture. 11_11_2013_2_52_52_am.png

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

How do you find something stuck between the tubs


Does it fill and wash, but just won't spin the clothes out? If so, you will need to replace the lid switch.

417-44052400 Fills with water, washes, drains/spins then comes to a stop. If I did the diagnostics right it indicates E11? Anybody else have this problem?


e11 is a water problem filling to slow,you could have a problem with your cold water fill line,clogged sediment in the valve or something like that,when it goes into rinse the machine uses cold water so the clothes won't wrinkle and it sounds like it's filling to slow.

Does washer spin without any clothes or water, try 'spin' only. If no, then u might have a loose connection to the motor. After u disconnect from the wall socket, see behind to see if all connections are ok. Do not over-load your machine, it could trip a switch which will stall things. Suggestions...
