    removed back cover, belt and motor look good and all in place. i can spin drum by hand,
    water fills but when it comes time for the the drum to spin nothing happens. If i put the control knob to spin or to drain the pump comes on and pumps the water from the washer but the drum does not spin.

Remove the back panel of the machine and operate it to check that the drive belts are being engaged to drive the drum. Observe the operation from a safe distance when you have the back off as there are live terminals within reach and you could be severely shocked if you come into contact with any one of them. Unplug the machine again before checking anything withing the workings.

    Try operating the machine while the back is off and see if you can determine why there is no drive to the drum. Look for things like pulley shafts sheared, pulleys not driving their shafts, belts slipping, a clutch that is not driving or even a belt missing/broken. Strictly speaking, you should not be able to move the drum freely, it should drive back to the motor and offer considerable resistance. Remember to maintain a safe distance when the power is on! Come back to me with your findings if you need further advice.

I have a Frigidaire affinity front load washer (fafs4474lwo) it doesn't do the final spin to get the water out of the clothes. I was getting an E52 and E58 codes. I replaced the drive motor and the motor...


Just a thought. If the drum spins when washer is empty that tells me your belt could be shot and just slips when there is a load in it. Check and see if the belt wiggles or appears loose when you squeeze it by hand with the plug pulled of course. If the belt is tight it could be a pulley is spinning on the shaft.

Are you saying it is draining the water properly? Because it sounds as though the pump is faulty. Every now and then you get pup motor that don't short out or stop completely they just don't drain we'll anymore. The drain period on your machine is timed so a slow drain may cause the error. So even though everything is clear and 'working' the pump needs replacing. Another cause would be a false reading from the pressure switch(level switch) but you would normally have problems with fill etc also, so unlikely.

My samsung front loader washing machine is not pumping or spinning says "error ND" checked pump all clear still nothing


on my kenmore machine nd means the drain filter is clogged. open the cover, drain water completely, remove and clean the filter, replace filter, tighten and close cover. hope this works for you. if not , at least your drain filter will be cleaned and you can eliminate it as the problem.

Water not filling in electrolux front loader, have cleaned out pump and detergent area, require sequence tpo override error


Hello,

You have checked the pump area,does the pump actually spin when you put control to drain or spin,because if the pump does not function correctly the machine will not bring any more water into the machine.There may still be a problem at the inlet valves etc.

Hope this helps.

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin


If the machine pumps water inside but does not start :

Start checking the lid switch, if this is stuck the machine wont start.

If the drum does not move at all, the motor, the motor control unit, the motor coupler, the control board may be faulty.

For more details , see: It doesn't spin
