Washer will not spin...I noticed that in spin cycle the lid no longer locks. We messed with it and then the lid locked and it did spin, but then it stopped working. The washer is only 5 years old if that.

Hello,

Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Call a plumber if you cannot remove the clogs.

Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning or draining.

Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

Close the door completely. The washer will not operate if the door is not securely closed.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

Aquasmart lid


Is the lid lock tang on lid broken.
2.9 Lid Lock
The Phase 7 Washer uses the same lid lock that is used on
the Phase 6 series 11 & 12 machines. The difference being is that the lid is now locked for the entire cycle. When the lid is locked the Lid Locked LED will illuminate. Once the spin
has completed, the lock will release and the lid can be
opened. To open the lid during the cycle the
START/PAUSE button must be pressed, the machine will
come to a halt, and the lid locked LED will extinguish.
If the lid is left open, the machine will be unable to lock the lid
and the cycle will be halted. The machine will play a tune
and the lid lock will flash until the lid is closed and START/PAUSE is pressed.
• If the lid-lock fails in the closed position, the locked lid can be forced upwards and out of the
lock. Note: This is the only time in which we would recommend doing this.
• If the harness is damaged, the complete lid lock assembly will need to be replaced.
If the power supply is cut during the spin cycle, the machine will keep the lid locked until the rotor has ceased to turn (3 to 10 secs). Only then will it release the lock. The motor is acting like a generator and allows the lock to stay energized under the bowls inertia.

Washes but locks on spin cycle does not spin or dran


Does the lid lock when it gets to the drain cycle? If not then you need a new locking mechanism. The tab in the mechanism breaks off and it tries to lock the lid but cant. If it hums when it gets to the drain cycle, you have something caught in the pump or a bad pump

Door not locking nor spin cycle not working


Hi.

Before proceeding to spin the timer does a check on the lid switch.

You should be able to fix the problem replacing the lid switch.

My Roper Washer RTW43405Q0 won't spin.


For the washer to operate the lid must be fully closed, the timer must be pulled out, and the water must be drained.
The main causes for not spinning are:
  • Lid partially or completely open
  • Lid or other object has hit the timer knob and turned the washer off
  • Lid not locked (by the way, not on all washers) and may be not draining.

    Make sure the lid is completely closed. Make sure that no clothing is in the lid area.

    Make sure the Timer knob is pulled out.
    The lid must be closed and locked for the washer to operate. Once the lid is closed, make sure the desired cycle is still selected and then press the Start button and listen for the lid to lock.
    Make sure there are no loose metal objects such as coins and paper clips in the lid opening area. Metal objects can prevent magnetic switches from reacting correctly when the lid is closed.



    If the washer has not drained, it will not go into spin.
    Hope this works.....

    Loses power in spin cycle


    First lid must be down before washer start spinning. Remove any obstructions in drain hose and or straighten drain hose to remove kinks. Lid or other object hit timer knob and turned the washer off - Make sure the Timer knob is pulled out.
    If the lid was opened with too much force when adding clothes, it may have hit the timer knob, pushing the knob in.
    If a laundry basket or other object hit the Timer knob, the Timer knob may have been pushed in shutting the washer off.
    Washer lid is not locked (Not on All Washers) - The lid must be closed and locked for the washer to operate. Once the lid is closed, make sure the desired cycle is still selected and then press the Start button and listen for the lid to lock.
    Make sure there are no loose metal objects such as coins and paper clips in the lid opening area. Metal objects can prevent magnetic switches from reacting correctly when the lid is closed.
    If the washer has not drained, it will not go into spin.
    Use a flashlight to inspect the holes in tub for foreign objects like screws, nails, bra wires, etc. and remove if present.

    My washing machine does not have a spin cycle


    I just solved this problem myself. It's the lid lock mechanism which is located under the top cover. When I manually moved the aluminum locking tab over my washer prompty drained and spun. There are four wires total going to the switch. Well, the solid white and the white/red wires control the lid lock mechanism. You can either replace the entire switch or bypass the lid lock by wire nutting the two wires I previously mentioned together. Now, if you bypass, be forewarned the lid will open while the washer spins very fast which presents a potential danger. For immediate use, bypass until you get the replacement switch. Hope this helps your problem.
