Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

3 lights and loud beeping


When you start your machine is the water just go stop go stop,
Just wait for the machine to display an error code on the wash progress lights and beeps constantly.
It could be the Rotor Position Sensor, out of balance switch or lid magnetic reed switch.
Your error code will determine this.
Is your machine beeping & showing a weird pattern of lights on the wash cycle, It is displaying an error code,
To read this error code you start at the red spin light & work to the left only add up the lights that are on. Red spin light = 1 2nd rinse light =2 1st rinse light =4 last wash light=8 4th wash light=16 3rd wash light=32 2nd wash light=64 1st wash light=128

Hi, I have SW1ASP Samsung 6 kg washing machine. Its washing but not spinning. its try to spin and motor try to pushing to spin but it spin slight and stop. When i jiggle the machine while it try to spin...


1) may be your spinning cloth load over.
2) Check inside the container (space of wall & spin tube) cloth may be inside.
3) Door stopper (Brake) position not correct.

Actually the spin motor starting slowly first.

Washer starts to fill then stops /now warsher wont wash


I too was having the same problem and I almost paid to have it repaired, which would have cost a few hundred dollars, thanfully I called the recall line after reading some of the other post on here and my machine was elgible for a upgraded on the control panel so didn' t cost anything for us. Sears told us that the F1 code is a miscommunication in the control panel, basically the machine is confused and don't know what to do so it stops and gives that code. Hope it helps!

Maytag atlantis wont spin cycle


this could be one of three things, 1. Rinse hold (an option to save the washing sitting crumpled when you are out) release the rinse hold button and it will spin.
2. You have a blocked drain or uneven load (if a washing machine spins with a full load of water in it it would dance around your kitchen and eventually break apart the weight is too much, it has to remove the water to a level within a set time or it will stop, or if its a uneven load it will attempet 3-4 times start a spin.
3. your motor brushes are worn (brushes last around 2-3 years depending on use) or board failure, first signs of this can be it will not spin, then it will not rotate at all try to spin it with no load (no washing) then add a couple of wet towels. if no spin it could be either of the two best way to check the brushes is to remove them and check the length they start around an inch long.
Always isolate the electrical supply when removing things from the machine.
