It doesn't pump or spinIf it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.


  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

      It pumps, but doesn't spinIf your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:


    • The
      lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't
      spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the
      door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the
      washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to
      replace it.



    • The motor coupler may be broken. Many
      Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive
      motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of
      the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time,
      the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.



    • A
      belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a
      belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine
      belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed
      with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)



    • The
      clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come
      up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent
      the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need
      to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified
      appliance repair technician.



    • The drive motor may be
      defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the
      motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's
      possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to
      operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire
      motor.



    • The transmission may not be shifting properly.
      Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an
      electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially
      defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex
      system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a
      qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.



    • The
      spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components
      allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is
      the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call
      a qualified appliance repair technician.

    Can you tell me what e6 on the display means as the machine wont work when this shows


    Not sure of the make/model, but with Samsung washing machines that usually means 2 things. If you get it when entering the spin mode and the system stops and displays the code, the water heater is heating too quickly. Press the power button once to clear the code and finish the cycle before repair.

    If you get the E6 during the spin cycle that can mean a problem with the main controller board.

    You can keep resetting to get past that code but if you continue to get it during a spin cycle or part of the laundry where hot water isn't used, then usually that controller board is bad.

    Good luck.

    My f&p gw611 Fills up but then wont wash.the 2nd


    Most possibly be Error code 56,
    Is common in 11 series machines & early series 12.
    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

    Samsung q1433 drum wont turn


    8E shows as an Over Current Error.

    This can be a problem with the main control board and/or the motor.

    Samsung state that unplugging the appliance for a short while then plugging it back in can cure this.


    Give it a try. If still getting the 8E you're looking at an expensive repair on the pcb and/or motor.

    E8 front loader washing machines


    OVER CURRENT ERROR - Display shows 8E.IPM fault signal (this is caused by the overload of the MICOM INTO during motor action).
    IPM: Integrated power module. The IPM controls the motor.
    If the fault (low signal) happens to be sensed even once during the washing/rinsing stage, the motor stops immediately. However, during the dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed, when the number of signals reads more than 6 per 500ms during the Washing or Rinsing cycle action.
    If the motor stops working, in one direction ten times, "8E" Error is displayed.
    During dehydrating, when the overload is sensed, the motor stops working at once and then feeds back to the initial stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing. When the feed back has occcurred twice, Error "8E" is displayed during the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing. When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily. Power Switch OFF can clear the overload error.

    HOWEVER, the UK White goods website says:

    E8
    Temp too high on low temp washesNormally this will be the wash temperature thermistor or NTC that's faulty, please contact us if you need the thermistor with the model and serial number.

    I have a samsung washing machine wf7600naw washing machine that won't spin and is displaying the error code SE. How can I fix the problem?


    WATER DRAIN ERROR - Display shows 5E.

    5E is displayed if the water level frequency detected is 25 KHz or less in the initial phase of the UNB -detecting cycle. The Water Drain error can be cleared by turning POWER SW OFF and back ON.

    Message on screen 8E, Motor won't start on spin cycle. Model no Q1435(C/S/V)


    This is what I found:
    11. OVER CURRENT ERROR - Display shows 8E .
    - IPM fault signal (that is caused by the overload of MICOM INT0 during motor action) is sensed.
    IPM : Integrated power module. , IPM controls motor.
    - If the fault signal (low signal) happens to be sensed even one time during cleansing/rinsing stage,
    the motor stops immediately. However, during dehydrating stage the signal is to be sensed
    when the number of signal is more than 6 for 500ms.
    - During Cleansing or Rinsing
    When the overload is sensed, the motor stops immediately and then proceeds to the next water-flow action.
    If the stopping of the motor working is happens in one direction ten times,
    "8E" Error is displayed.
    - During dehydrating
    When the overload is sensed, the motor stops to work at once and then feeds back to the initial
    stage of the dehydration unbalance sensing.
    When the feed back is continuously happened 2 times, "8E" Error is displayed
    During the dehydrating unbalance sensing, No error happens by overload sensing.
    When it happens at more than 800rpm, the process is stopped compulsorily.
    -Power S/W Off can clear the overload error.
    in short: imbalance problem
    In a german forum one guy solved the problem by replacing the motor electronics. I am currently experiencing the same problem. I keep you posted.
