If the unit will agitate but freezes once it gets to the spin cycle try testing/replacing the lid switch. If this is not your issue please elaborate on your problem and maybe supply a model number. Good luck.

WFS1073DD front load WASHING MACHINE Everything works but will not spin fast enough to spin the water out. It spins very slow


Early automatic washers used a motor with multiple windings to provide the various speeds required by different parts of each wash programme. Modern washers use an entirely different sort of motor and the speeds are selected and controlled electronically with feedback to ensure the speed is correct.

I suspect the problem is the electronics - the part of the programmer and controller that regulates the motor speed but you should check the motor and motor brushes, the drive belt and all electrical connections as a matter of best practice before you spend money...

All the program working normal except agitator cycle


No agitation or spin? try these:

Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.

Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Transmission or clutch assembly not engaging due to going out or slipping.


Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

GE washer won't spin


Sounds like it needs a new motor. Electric motors can develop bad spots on their coils. What happens is they begin to work intermittently or only when hit. This is the same problem with a cars starter motor. Probably a pretty easy fix, just unplug the power to the washer for safety and pull it out and get a part number off the motor assembly then order up a new motor. If you have a multimeter and are comfortable working around live AC voltage to can see if power is being sent to the motor at the power connector.

I have front loader 7kg has worked perfectly for 5 years. Just today has decided not to spin - hums away trying to.Have tried rinse & spin but to no avail. Would appeciate any suggestions


It sounds like either the belt has worn out or snapped, or maybe the motor is not spinning. Remove the access panel to the motor and check that the belt is still attached and that the motor still spins. Either replace the belt, or replace the motor and/or motor control. Of course, you may need to test the motor control board as well as the motor if it is not spinning.

My maytag atlantis washer purchased in 2002 would not spin on the colors spin cycle. I turned the control completely around to the spin cycle and tried again and it didn't work. I also set it on the spin...


Jim, I would be looking at the lid switch assembly. Try to press down on the lid in the very front edge. IF the switch is going out of tolerance, the added pressure will activate the switch and allow the machine to spin. If it were a transmission problem, you would hear the motor. (I'm assuming you are not hearing the motor).
If you are hearing the motor run, check the motor slides to make sure they are not rusted and the motor is able to pivot back and forth freely.
Let me know if you have any other questions on this!!

The rinse and spin cycle not working


have you tried to help to rotate the washer to spin?

if the motor run after doing it. your problem is on the starting capacitor.

for the spin try to see if the break of the motor is not intact. this might cause of the spin motor
to not to rotate.

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.
