Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(no promises but try this first!)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain 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. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

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!

Soaking wet clothes after spin cycle


Check and choose a longer spin cycle and see if the fault changes. If so the SPIN cycle is too less or there is less action or speed in the cycle, check the motor speed, check the capacitor to the motor, the spindle friction - if so reset the spindle and drive.

My washing fills and drains properly, but will not agitate or run the spin cycle. I sounds like it is going through the cycle properly, but will not turn the drum (spin cycle) or agitator.


Try picking a different wash cycle, instead of your annual quick wash cycle opt for the longer wash cycle and then you may find that the spin cycle may kick-in, hope this works for you, good luck!

Will no longer spin


Hi, I have to ask a couple of questions to pin point this for you. Does the washer agitate?
When the washer is in the spin cycle, Does the motor run at all? The most common problem with the spin cycle is either the lid switch or the coupler. This is why I am asking the questions.
Please let me know so I can assist you.

Washer won't advance from cycle to cycle


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.

It's possible that the high speed windings on the motor no longer work, or it could be the clutch.

If the motor is spinning very fast, but the tub is not spinning, then the clutch is broken. If the motor is not spinning fast, then it probably needs a new motor.

Spin cycle not working


Maybe the spring device that keeps the belt tight is not working properly. You need to make sure what ever it is that keeps that belt tight is working properly or not damaged. The belt is very important for the spin to work good. Match it up with your old belt. The old belt will be slightly longer because of being stretched over a period of time. Get your unit number and model number (or take the belt) and go to your nearest dealer and get the correct belt.
