Washing Machine won't go through spin cycle

Hi
I also think that it's not rinsing as the clothes have been in there for 2 days as I keep replaying the washing cycle in the (now) vain hope that it'll work. There are too many suds that would imply it's not rinsing either. I've found a drain outlet at the bottom left hand side of the machine - but the only way that I'd be able to soak up the water is putting every towel I possess on the floor....is this my only option??
Thanks

    I have frequent SUDS problems with the MAH2400. I have cleaned all the outlet pipes from the drum to the wall drain but the machine still has problems. I am using HE wash powder and there are no suds visible in the machine. Is there a suds sensor or is this a pump problem/control problem? The user manual and tech manual offer no real assistance with this problem!

    Thanks - David Powell

To get the water out, lay the emptying hose down at floor level into a bowl, tip the water down the sink a bit at a time, then check for a blockage in the outlet filter, or the pump

I had the same problem before, but removing the kink in drain hose does the trick. Maybe yours is more complicated but try it.

Hi can you tell me which programme is the short wash and spin please


I think I have the same type of washing machine as you do. Wash is when all the clothes get agitated or mixed with soap and water (ever look in there when its washing? the water can get pretty gross looking!) So in my washer, the rinse cycle is when all that gross water is drained, and the washer spins while spraying clean water over the clothes to get rid of the dirty water and soap. I think mine does this 5 or 6 times in the cycle. Next is the spin cycle, which is when the washer spins REALLY fast to **** as much water out of the clothes as possible, so that the clothes aren't sopping wet when you put them in the dryer.

It sounds like your mom has a newer washing machine, probably a front load one, and they do seem to keep using clean water, instead of just agitating the clothes in dirty water.

We have an Aquasmart top loader and our clothes, mainly dark items, are being covered by a scum after washing. We have put the machine through the clean cycle, but this has not made any difference.


I have found with my aquasmart that if you use the 'high efficiency' the water does not cover the clothes sufficiently which is why the soap residue (noticeable more on dark clothes) is visible. I don't use high efficiency. even on conventional sometimes I still have to check that the water level is high enough. Also **use only liquid, low sudsing detergent and do not put it on the clothes-use the dispenser only. As for my machine... Time for the repair man to check the sensing I think

My clothes stink so bad from my front end LG washer! My co-worker on my first week of work started buying bath and body sprays and body wash leaving it on my desk. I'm so pissed off because my washer was...


My LG stunk too. I did the tub washing with 1 cup bleach and wiping the rim, leaving everything open, nothing worked. I added 2 cups of a 6% bleach and used the tub cleaning cycle, rinsed with an empty hot water cycle then added bleach-able clothes to the 2nd hot water rinse (the third cycle/step). It gets a very strong bleach smell so don't take a whiff if you open the door in the first 2 cycles! After I did the strong bleach cycle, I am able to treat with just the 1 cup bleach about every 3 or 4 weeks and I make sure to wash with a hot water wash every week and a half at the least. This seems to keep my clothes smelling fresh like they should. Before I bought the LG, I read where people turned up the amount of water the washer takes in but I can't find the link that said how to do that. I think it was 1/4 turn on a screw on the top of the machine (when you take the cover off) but I can't guarantee how to do that.

Washer smokes during rinse cycle. With clothes out of it, only the rinse cycle works. Breaker pops when trying to run a cycle with clothes in it. Water also does not drain


1. This could be due to a belt that is loose or if this is a "direct drive" motor then the bearings are gone and the motor need replacement.
2. There could be leakage ( water) from the pump hose spaying the motor and causing vapor.
3. There may be a exposed wire from vibration rub during the "spin" cycle and is grounding against the enclosure.
These are just a few scenarios that could be.
The unit will have to be open by a trained technician to give full disclosure of this issue.
I hope this helps. Have great day!

Washer won't spin


Try a different spin cycle on another setting if it still doest work try removeing the clothes and changing it to a normal wash cycle. If no try unplugging it for a minute or 2 and then back in hopefully it resets and if still no movement on the unit at all you may have overloaded it causing the motor to wear prematuraly and burn up. This is very common with overloading.
