Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

The washer won't spin. I have one light blanket in the machine and it won't spin. I turned the machine to a regular wash cycle to see if the drum would spin and it did. When I turn in back to the spin cycle - I can hear the machine sound, but the drum does not move. Any suggestions? My machine is a Bosch Nexxt 500 and about 2 1/2 years old. Thank you.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. What I'm going to tell you can be validated with the Bosch owners manual so I suggest you check into it. The reason the Bosch will not spin with just a single item (regardless of weight) is it isn't designed not to. If you add a similar garment of equal or similar mass it will spin. These units rely on weight differential to determine balance...if one side of the basket has too great a difference from the other, the dyno on the motor will not allow it to spin. Thank you for choosing FixYa today and good luck. Please let me know how it goes or if I can assist you in any manner going forward. Regards, Macmarkus :)

Spin light flashhes spin does not work


The Miele W864 model will flash a warning light and will refuse to spin when it considers its load to be unstable....What I mean is... if you put a blanket in it and the blanket is on one side of the drum, the computer decides that if the machine spins, the centre fugal force or whatever they call it, the weight of the thing inside, will make the machine move about dangerously and will therefore not spin... its a safety feature. My spelling is shocking... I will look at the manual. Which says the load is unstable... more or less... waterlogged garments, like blankets can do this.... I normally just fill it with towels, and wash twice or three times because I wont get a good wash when overloaded.xx

Wt you mean by spin in washing machine



its a separate cycle all by itself.
Say U hand wash something in a sink and instead of wringing it out by hand U can put it in the washer and press this SPIN cycle.
So U can also use it to spin more water out of your garments after the regular wash and spin cycle.

Slower spin speeds mean -

  • Cheaper washing machines
  • Quieter washing machines
  • More stable washing machines
  • Longer lasting washing machines because there's less wear and tear on the bearings, motor, carbon brushes, suspension etc.*
  • Gentler on laundry
  • The drum spins for approx 4 or 5 mins. No water is added and you dont add detergent or fabric softener for the spin only option. The object of the exercise is to centrifugally remove excess water from the garments in the drum. They will still be damp but not sopping wet after the spin cycle
  • Spin takes the water out, extract is even better

Wfmc3200uc101 bosch washer doesnot spin out when a single sweater is in. the drum turns but not at full speed


i have the same problem, what i find helps put a bed sheet in with the sweater to even the load, ( I keep a sheet by the washer for this specifically) and take it off max. spin cycle for the small load (I know this sounds stupid) I have a bosch also and I have problems with small blankets too. This usually helps, but I found that if i do this under the 25 minute quick wash instead of the regular wash it doesn't spin out either, kind of stupid to run a machine with only one sweater for 58 minutes, I would never buy a front loader again, betty

In the Spin cycle, after 9 minuts, it will stop with a "UL".


"UL" means "Unbalanced Load" - make sure the washer isn't overloaded first or if you are doing rugs, blankets, or lots of jeans, split the load. You can also try running an empty or light load and see how the machine behaves.

If you still have the problem, you may have some issues with the drum bumpers, etc., but try the easy things first.

Ariston front loading washing washing


Believe it or not.....its almost always the cloths ( heavy blankets) that one places inside.
TRY:: In the spin cycle if the load is unbalanced the TUB will rock and make that "loose drum out of alignment" noise. STOP the machine and open the door ( IF IT IS A TOP LOADER ) realign the cloths (heavy or more then one blanket) so that it is EVENLY spaced through out the tub.Start the machine again.If it does it again, stop the machine and REALIGN the cloths (blanket !!) again.
p.s. there is a simpler way of doing it but I don't want you to loose your hand in the process.

My LG TROM wash googd but dosn't want to spin


Check and see what type detergent you are using. I bought regular liquid detergent and the machine began making noise during the spin cycle and the drum would not spin. I was informed that you have to use detergent that is labeled HE (High Efficiency). The regular liquid detergent will suds up during the wash cycle which then causes the drum to slip and not spin during the spin cycle. What you are hearing during the spin cycle is the drum slipping. Unplug your washer for 30 minutes and let it reset. This lets the suds dry out. Run a cycle with no spin to rinse out the drum. This should eliminate your problem. If you have clothes in the machine, run a cycle with no spin, just don’t add any more detergent. Then run the normal cycle with spin a second time with no detergent. I hope this cures your problem.
