Your gearcase (transmission) is starting to fail, Gracie Dawn. This is one of the usual symptoms that will eventually lead to a complete failure where the washer will not agitate or spin. Another tell tale sign is to look under the machine. If you see any amber colored oil, the gearcase is definitely trashed and needs to be replaced. The latter is an ADDITIONAL symptom. You can still have a gearcase failure without it leaking oil. A new gearcase runs around $200 for the part. Rebuilt may be less. If you decide to pursue this on your own, I can give step by step guidance on how to change one out. I hope this helps you.

OK- my Kenmore He2 won't spin fast enough to drain when there is a heavy load involved. This is what I've done- emptied the filter- lots of change and other gunk, cleaned out attached hoses and the p

Check the shocks on the drum to make sure they are ok. if they wear out the drum spins out of balance and the computer wont allow it spine because it would WALK and damage itself.

My washer is making a clicking sound when it is about to begin the high spin cycle to spin the water out of the clothes and is unable to begin the spin cycle on it's own. I have to manually move the knob...

If this is a belt drive unit it could be the belt or whats called a actuator also call a shifter. This componet switches the gearbox from agitate during wash to Spin to extract the water from the garments.

Washer won't spin fast water doesn't drain

Remove your bottom front kick panel, usually two to three screws on the very bottom front of the washer. Unplug washer, have a lot of towels ready to mop up the water that comes out of the washer. In the very center front of the washer is the round plastic drain pump filter for the washer. Unscrew this a little,(turn the plastic screw counterclockwise) and let the water drain completely as you soak it up with your towels. When it is completely drained, unscrew the filter the rest of the way and clean out all the debris in the filter and inside its receptacle. Reinstall everything and test. I recommend you do this at least every 6 months. If this doesn't work then you may have a bad water pump. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Washer calypso

Unplug your machine for 5 min then turn on spin to remove water. If water won't go you have a bad water pump. Code FL refers to a low water flow problem ( won't fill fast enough ) or old water still in tub.
Next you need to turn off the water ot the unit and remove the water lines. Look into the water inlets on the washer to see if the dirt screens are clogged and not letting water into you unit at a fast enough pace.
Your unit has a water level sensor and should agitate when full, but I believe your machine might be "timing out" i.e. not filling as fast as your unit expects so even though it doesn't fill all the way it begins agitating because it has taken too long to fill. Good Luck!

Final spin cycle

Lots of possibilities to check out before considering a problem with the machine: Is the load unsorted, too big or off balance? Drain restricted or too high? Oversudsed? Water draining completely out before going into spin?
