SOURCE: DRUM HAS STOPPED SPINNING

Well, I failed to find your product but found close and I've read the manual and can see no sign of anything being able to be presed that would stop motor operating in its wash cycles, I take it that you have totally drained/removed clothing and let machine get to normal start position, and done the standard disconnect from power, and plug it back in and test again and make sure no flashing lights are present and door is locking correctly

Possibility exists that your balance switch is faulty I'd look at that if not then Either motor is dead or control board is faulty

If you know your way around electricity then you could test if power is being supplied to motor.

As for the count losing 10 mins then thats pointing to control board fault (quite possible due to operations panel being operated)

SOURCE: DRUM NOT SPINNING

Disconnect your washer's plug for 5 minutes or more from the wall socket. Plug in. Press "end of cycle" button for over 5 seconds, the child lock comes off.
Press it again and the child lock comes on................ If this does not work, try the pre-wash button likewise.

SOURCE: Bosch WFL2450 Washing Machine wont spin cycle

Hi there, this problem sounds as though the carbon brushes are needing replaced or infact just needing to be cleaned of dust or dirt. Its very common for the brushes to be covered in dust and fibres. Im not sure where the brushes will be on this model but I hope this helps you in someway.

SOURCE: zanussi washing machine won't start E10, E40 & E50 at times

It was suggested that the pump had failed and taken out the programmer with it - expensive! Wife wouldn't wait, and bought new machine. Problem almost solved - anyone want an out of order washing machine?

the water should only be filling up to approc 2in above the drum bottom...........look inside when its filling..........if its filling to nearly the bottom of the door you either have a faulty pressure switch or grit/dirt in the internal filter.......as a result the machine will not spin if there is too much weight in the drum

My hotpoint Aquarius wmf740 washer dial is just spinning is there an easy fix


yes

its in error mode

its trying to get back to where the error was last
drain the machine from the filter

power off the mains

hold in the power on button
and turn on the mains
it will reset

the machine does a simple self check when it turns on
so a faulty pump will cause this
usually its a faulty pump housing is leaking water

or blocked up
so the pump cant move
when you turn it on it spins the pump motor a few turns and detects its running

so you may need to remove the filter round cover screw
and its tray

and check the pump viens move
may be some hair clip or clothes wires stuck in it or a coin etc


it should go to then where it left off
i would at this point stop it with the button
move the selector to drain
and let it drain and end
or to short spin
if it spins aok and ends
then you can just go for it with a load
if it fails to short spin and drain something else is wrong
prob electronic

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning


This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 Washer Dryer not drying.


Hi, I think the problem you have is with the cold water inlet valve? When your machine dries it uses a small amount of water at high pressure through a restricter fitted in the water inlet valve. These break down letting in to much water which cannot evaporate quick enough for it to pump out causing the washing to become wetter than after the wash/spin cycle. The only way of solving this is to replace th tree way water inlet valve. But make sure that the pump is working ok first and that there is nothing in the sump hose trap which is located underneath the washing machine out the bottom of the tub.
Good luck.................

LTF2140E Front loader washer


My Frigidaire front loader washer model LTF2140E doesnt want to drain the water when set to wash (heavy-normal-quick selectors). It washes put thats it. I have to switch the selector to drain/spin then rinse/spin cycle to finish the load. I checked the drain hose for any clogs....everything is clear. Any suggestions? Also,iIs2.gif their any reset buttons for this type of washer?

Washer will not pass wash cycle...Will not Drain


Nightshade, in most cases, no spin, no drain is a lid switch problem. If you advance the timer to the spin position does it spin? If the machine is agitating you can rule out the coupler. If you are sure that it is not a lid switch problem, then you are probably looking at a bad timer....Catriver..post back.
