It only spins!

My washer spins only. The circuit board has been replaced. Previously, I've succeeded in getting it to function correctly by wiggling the dial.

Your pressure switch my be bad. Does the washer fill with water and what does it do after that?

  • Anonymous Oct 30, 2007

    Washer is not filling and stuck in final spin.

    CAUSE

    Washer cycle was stopped before

    completion and left in pause for longer

    than 24 hours. After 24 hours, an Automatic

    Feature pumps out all water to help protect

    against bacterial growth.

    SOLUTION

    Select a different cycle and disconnect

    power to washer for 30 seconds (reset

    controls). Instruct the consumer on cause

    and solution.

My washer starts to fill after 20 seconds the spin light and lid light comes on and stops filling. Model awn63rsn115tw01

The issue you are experiencing with your washing machine may be related to a faulty lid switch or spin cycle sensor. The lid switch is responsible for ensuring that the washer lid is closed before the machine starts filling or spinning. The spin cycle sensor controls the speed of the spin cycle and may cause the machine to stop if it is not functioning correctly.
I recommend checking the lid switch and spin cycle sensor for proper function and ensuring that they are not dirty or damaged. If the problem persists, you may need to replace these components.

My kenmore elite calypso will not do final spin.flashes LD. I replace the pump as was suggested,still did not fix froblem

Hello Alex;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.


After review of your washer components, there is a strong possibility that you have a bad electronic control board. You have two control boards, one is for the motor and one for the other functions.

25306051-b3edjqs4ufvbcqfi2v1m52kl-2-0.jpg

Washer electronic control board for Kenmore Elite Washer model #11021062001 Electronic control board 8571359 is the circuit board that manages the washer's functions, such as filling, washing, draining and spinning. It sends voltage to the drive motor and other electro-mechanical component.

Cost: $218.00

If you elect to replace the board make sure you ground yourself by rubbing your hands on something that is bare steel. Static electricity will knock a board out.

All appliances with electric control boards should have a surge protector. You can purchase a wall socket surge protector for $20-25.00. It is a good investment considering how expensive control boards are.

Rule of thumb; "If the unit is either 7 years old or the cost of repair is 1/3 or more of the original price, purchase a new unit.

Consider it purchasing a new unit, stripping your existing unit for parts to sell on e-bay. You will make a little money and save others expensive parts cost.

Washer will work in Rinse or Spin settings, but not any wash settings

If you are doing the normal procedures and the water elimination function is working, you have power to the circuit board and controls. The circuit board wash cycle section is independent and aligned with the timer circuit, thus the Wash Cycle Controller has failed. All of the functions or options are one the one board and a replacement board needs to be purchased and installed.

My candy GOFS262 washing machine is filling the drum to the top with water on every cycle but doing nothing else after that, the clothes jst sit there in the water, I've left it to see if something...

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
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 transmission.

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.

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.

Clothes come out wet

HI, this is a common issue that is easily fixed by, replacing the control unit. this control manages the motor functions during operations. if this unit is not spinning correctly, replace the Control unit. aka(motor control unit). In you washer, they call the motor control board a (Control Unit). replace this asap if possible. this will fix your washer. ADDITIONAL CHECKS--(Make sure that this unit is also draining water properly as well. this will cuase wet spin outs as well).

HELP!!

We've had this problem for about a yr when i finally firgured out how to correct it.
the problem is that the circuit board is attached to the washer, when it starts to shake it causes the connections to loosen and theats the fault code you get.
How I fixed this was to suspend the circuit from a bungie strap this will allow the washer to shake all it wants and the circuit board is stable, connections stay tight andwasher works fine, after 6 months not one error code at all
