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

Oreck won't pick up dirt.


Check the roller brush, dust channel and then the back spine tubes - two parts which also holds the cloth bag - which holds it at the bottom via a spring. Unhook this, and prise up the rubber rings that hide the push in locks. Push the locks in and the spines should separate.You may need to undo the power cord since it comes out the top near the handle at the bottom. Check both spines and remove clogs with a thin round stick. Put everything back together slowly and switch on.

HOW DO i CLEAN MAIN TUBE IN HANDLE CLOGED


You'll have to unpick or slide up the rubber rings on the back of the handle at the bottom where the rear of the bag is. Unclip the bag so that it moves freely, slide up the rubber rings and you'll find a series of pop locks. Push these in to take out the main dust spine pipe - also remove the power cord at the top of the handle to release the handle. In the middle of the spine there is one screw that bonds the top handle part to the spine, unscrew this so that you can split the two parts up and check for clogs. Also check the main dust channel that leads to the bag - it is notorious for clogging because of its relatively small dust channel.

I NEED TO CLEAN UPRIGHT HANDLE TUBE IT IS CLOGGED


Its a simple operation but it will take some time.  On the back of the Oreck just up from the motor you'll come to the first rubber ring which hides the push/pin locks of the main spine. There are two or three on the Oreck depending on the XL model - slide them down to reveal the pin locks and push them in wards to unlock the main spindle pipe. At the same time ensure that the bag clip at the bottom has been unclipped and the cord is also free, taken off the hooks at the back. The main pipe/spine at the back is the main dust channel so this is the first place to check for a clog and then upwards towards the handle/dust channel feeder - there is usually a small screw on the square part at the bottom which loosens the main handle from the body of the spine.

Vacuum billows dust


Its clogged. It needs to have a thorough clean out and this can be done by removing the sole plate / floor head where the beater bar is and checking to see that all the air ways or the dust channel that flows through t he main spine neck at the back is clear, checking the main spine at the back is clear and finally to check that there is no clogging at the top of the back spine as well. Oreck XL can become clogged quite quickly due to its relatively small suction tube openings and small motor.
