Question about LG WM2301HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I had a lot of sheets and a couple of towels in the washing machine and it eventually the load just stopped before the spin cycle(dial on sanitary mode) I drained the water and tried to drain and spin and all I hear now is a clanking sound and it's not spinning, sounds like a cog spinning and not catching on anything...not sure what is happening. I took out all the sheets and the same thing is happening, please help!!!

Thank you for using FixYa. Does the drum of your machine appear to move freely when turned by hand? If it does with no resistance, I would say that the drive belt has either come off the motor or it has perhaps been placed under a strain with a "heavy" wet load and and snapped. The drive belt can be accessed through the panel on the rear of the machine. If the belt has simply come off, run the belt round the small pully wheel on the motor and then work it onto the large wheel on the back of rhe drum. Turning the large wheel on the back of the drum in a clockwise direction whilst guiding the belt on will make matters easier.
I hope this as helped. If so please place a Most Helpfull vote

Regards

Duncan

    I had the same symptoms, but a totally different problem which was even easier to solve. When I opened the back, I noticed the bolt that holds the spin wheel onto the motor had fallen off! All I had to do was replace it firmly and it worked again.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Bosch Nexxt 800 washer won't drain clothes fully


There is not a Spin Only Cycle BUT there is a REFRESH cycle that will take about 10 minutes.

Sometimes when the load is unbalanced and the machine can not balance the load by itself, the clothes will remain soaked. To avoid this, make sure you always have a balance of small and large things and when loading your machine, do not shove the items in so they ball up.

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.

Can you add clothes to washer after cycle starts?


Not really. Even if it lets you it will pump out the water first. This kind of defeats the purpose. If it didn't pump out the water it would spill on the floor.

No reset. Carbon brushes are worrn out. Consider changing the bearings while you have the motor apart. Se http://www.nettoparts.co.uk/shop/frontpage.html for spares.
