Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If your washer doesn't drain or spin, you may read and learn what parts may cause this. First, you will want to check your water pump. You need to make sure it is working. Make sure you check the belt on the pump. Make sure it is not broken or loose. Also, make sure your pulley is not stuck in place. Sometimes, they will stick or barely turn at all. If this is the case, you will need to replace it. If the pump, pulley, and belt are working, make sure your motor is working. You should be able to hear it if it is. If it isn't, check your lid switch. The lid switch can cause the motor to not work. It may need adjusted. If not, go ahead and change it. A bad lid switch may cause the washer to not work at all. Now, if your pump is pumping and the washer still won't spin, you will want to check your belt and clutch. Once again, the belt may be broke or loose. Check to make sure your clutch is not worn also. This may be a case of a bad lid switch again as well. You could have a bad drive motor. This is what controls spinning, draining, and agitation. You could have a broken motor coupler. Over time, they will go bad and need replaced. It is possible that your transmission is slipping or damaged. And lastly, you could have a bad basket drive ir spin bearing. This is what allows the inner tub to move. If this is the case, you will probably hear loud sounds or loud banging. I want to thank you for reading and I hope this helps you. Best regards and thanks for reading

Washer wont drain lg tromm frontloading washer


You need to isolate the drain pump and check the voltage at the time of the drain cycle. If no voltage is present then you need to check on the control board as it can be a failure of the drive.
If voltage is present but there is no drain action then the valve pump is stuck, choked or faulty.
remove and check: click on : Drain.

Washer won't spin during rinse cycle. agitates fine during was cycle.


The lid switch is probably your culprit. the washer won't spin or drain if the lid switch is defective. Try pushing down on it with a pen or small screwdriver and see if it will spin then. There should be a slight clicking nois when it is activated, although it will sometimes click even though it is not working.

It wont spin


Your washer has a lid switch.97a908d.jpg If the switch is broken the washer will not spin. The pump is mounted on the motor.c5ccc2f.jpg
In the wash cycle the pumps turns counterclockwise. In the spin cycle the pump turns clockwise, forcing the water out of the machine. So if that lidswitch is dead then she won't pump OR spin. This video shows how to get into your machine and the next one shows how to replace the lid switch

My Bosch classic 1200 express washing machine wont drain or spin


Possibly a blocked filter or pump.
Ths filter should be at the bottom right front of washer, sometimes behind a removeable cover at the bottom of washer.
To clean it, unscrew anti-clockwise, remove and clean.

Washing wont spin or drain it stops after rinse


slowly open and close the lid and listen for a clicking sound. most washers have a lid switch that clicks when closing the lid. if this switch is bad then the washer will not spin or drain. depending on what brand of washer you have.
