What would cause my maytag front load washer not to spin? It is a Maytag front load washer and it will not spin. The water drains out no problem just doesn't spin. Also the drum looks lower than it no


The drum bearings may have failed , Or the spin motor winding in the motor burnt out ,
Or the selector switch contacts are not engaging in spin cycle

I own a Samsung dryer model DV218AEB/XAA. In both the sensor and timed cycles it shuts off early and goes dead for about 30 minutes before it comes back to life and the load can be restarted, only to


Hello,
I have a good idea that it may be the following;

Drum Roller Axle

This dryer has drum support rollers. There will always be two supporting the rear of the drum, and on some models there may be two supporting the front of the drum. The rollers must spin freely to work properly. If the roller axles are worn out the rollers may not spin freely which can overload the motor and the dryer stops. If the dryer stops mid-cycle, remove the belt and spin the drum, it should spin freely. If not, check the rollers and roller shafts.
You can check out other possibilities and order parts here using the following link;

MOTOR SMELLS OF BURNT MOTOR WINDINGS. iS IT NORMAL


No, the pump works while spinning. The burnt smell is probably the belt, especially if your wife saw smoke. Did she put a big load in it at the time?

The belt will slip until the tub catches up with the motor. If there is a heavy load, it can burn the belt up. I would replace it. Make sure the idler pulley on the motor moves freely also.

Doesn't spin freely, works for about half a cycle and stops spinning. won't turn back on or spin good until it cools for a few hours. then you might get another half cycle or so out of it.


open the dryer door and maunually spin the drum around. if it spins relatively easily, then it sounds like the drive motor is going bad. the windings open up and it stops. sounds like you need a new motor. it may be cheaper in the long run to get a new dryer

Washer fills with water and thats it


Possible a bad motor control board. Depending on the age of the washer, you may need to replace the motor control board and the motor as a kit. Also be sure to test that the motor control board is getting power, I've seen cases of the motor/ motor control failing and taking out the main control also. The tech sheet is in the console and should walk you through the steps.

Whirlpool washer slow to spin


Yes I happens to work a lot with this type of machines. Normally when the spin is too slow the problem rises form a week voltage, motor winding too week for the velocity. I means that the winding in the motor might have gotten burn and weakened the winding to the point where when the motor ask for more voltage to spins the housing the winding heat up. That is why you smell as something burning. The system in this type of machines is not complex but tedious. If everything else work in the machine then it is the motor.

Zanussi Aquacycle 1000 f1045 spin dry fault


test the machine empty without clothes in it, if all is well then i think your problem may be the motor carbons, take them off and check for damage, make sure one of them has not spit down the middle, also look at the armature for signs of sparking,a worn armature or carbons will work fine at slow speeds

you haven't mentioned the carbons, its trying to spin so may not be the pcb
