Well guys, I got the same problem yesterday night. My washing mashine didn't spin the water out. In the morning, I opened the small door on the front of the machine, in the right down corner. It was not easy, but finally opened.
After I twisted the cap and pull out a very very stinking and disgusting black thing. Bleah!
At first I thought I finished, but after I checked inside with a flashlight, and saw, there is some more of this disgusting black stuff. I pushed inside a fork and got it out. At the same time all the water came out to the floor. So I think the water couldnt leave, because the filter was totally full.
Now I am testing it and hope it was the only problem. I hope I could help you guys! Have a nice day!
Having a washer full of wet clothes because it is not spinning all of the water out is frustrating. This is a guide about washer does not spin water out of clothes.
Automatic washers spin as part of the wash cycle prior to the rinse and spin cycles. If your machine is not spinning there may be an issue with the lid switch.
A washing machine must be level and the load balanced to spin properly. Otherwise it may be time for a repair. This is a guide about whirlpool washer not spinning.
It is frustrating to be left with a wet load of laundry when your washer won't go into the spin cycle. This is a guide about Kenmore washer not spinning.

What's wrong with the spin feature? It doesn't seem to spin water out and smells like rubber/plastic burning.
By creek girl
Late to the party here, but it sounds like your drive belt is worn out and the pulley has rubbed against it causing it to overheat. When this happens the belt is compromised and needs to be replaced. When you replace the belt with a new one the tensioner may need to be adjusted depending on how tight/loose the belt is.
*Some washing machines are belt driven, some have the tub mounted directly atop the motor. It just depends on the model.
Hope this helps.
I have a Kenmore washer/dryer model# 110.88762793. It will fill with water and go through a whole wash cycle. When it's time for it to spin the water out it stops and will not do anything else. It will not pump the water out either. Can someone help me figure this out?
Check that nothing is blocking the washer door from closing all the way. There is a sensor that stops the cycle when the door is open.
I have a 2010 Frigidaire washing machine that does not spin all the water out of the clothes after the spin cycle. What could be the cause?
You could have a defective belt or a kink in the drain hose.
Why is my Roper washer not spinning as well as I used to? The clothes are still very wet.

It's possible the belt is wearing out and needs replacing. If all else works great, that's my best guess.
My Frigidaire front load washer won't spin all the water out on my clothes. They come out soaking wet. Can some one help with the part I need to change?

Check part select.com. They have great prices on the parts you need plus help you figure out what's wrong.
My washing machine still washes, but it doesn't do the hard spin it's meant to do, so the clothes still are very wet. There isn't any excess water and there are no blockages. Can anyone help?

No smart alec answer from me. The motor is weak. Most of the time it is the brushes are worn down to almost nothing. The brushes cost about $10.00 a pair and are very easy to replace. Make sure you UNPLUG the washer. If the brushes are not shorter than 1/4" or so, the motor may be worn out.
I have a Frigidaire front load washer, model gltf2940fs1. The problem started with water not pumping out, so l ordered a new drain pump. I put it on and now it pumps water out OK, but now it won't go into high spin to remove excess water from clothes. It will go thru all cycles OK except final spin cycle and will not complete final spin cycle. It shuts off with about 7 or 8 minutes left.

You can contact the manufacturer for help online or by phone:
The spin cycle spins, but the clothes are still quite damp.
Does it still need a new belt?
I don't think washers have belts any more. Call a repair person, and get it fixed in a jiffy.
My washer doesn't spin fast enough and leaves my clothes wet. How do I fix it with household tools?
Sounds like your belt is too loose.
I have an Amana top loading heavy duty washing machine, probably 5-8 years old. It does not seem to spin clothes as dry as usual. Is there anything I can check or do before calling a repair person?
By KS from Mountain Home, AR
I'd check the condition of the belt. Perhaps it's stretched a bit or worn. This would mean it's not as tight as when new.
When my Samsung front load washer goes into the spin cycle, it acts like it can't balance itself out, therefore it doesn't get up to full speed. Therefore the clothes are not getting rung out all the why. Any solutions to this problem?
Reach into the washer and try to turn the basket. It should be hard to turn. If it is easy to turn, you have a problem with the drive block. If it is hard to turn, there is a problem with the clutch.
It turns fairly hard so I assume it must be the clutch. Thanks
My washing machine is spinning, but not at the speed it should. What's the problem?
I have a 20 - 30 year old Kenmore 110 washer. They do not make the washers and dryers last anymore. Both my washer and dryer are working well, except the washer does not spin all the water out on the permanent press spin cycle. It will spin all the water out properly on the sturdy cotton cycle. What might be the problem?
If you phone a repair person, most will tell you that your washer is too old to bother fixing. Mine was only 16 years old and washed clothes for only 1 or 2 people most of those years. I could not get anyone to fix it since out regular repairman closed his business. I might suspect that there is something worn out in the switch/dial/ whatever you have that controls the cycle. If I were you, I would simply wash my clothes on the cotton cycle, or wash them on the Perm/press cycle, and then switch over to the cotton cycle for the spin. If your machine is 30 years old, you are not going to get anyone to come and look at it, unless you have a saint for a repair person.
Thank you for your quick response. I have looked at new washers and dryers and am constantly told by the sales person that I should only expect 8- 10 years at the most. What a sorry statement. Several salesman have told me just to keep what I have until is completely breaks. It is not the money so much as the fact that they have built in planned obsolescence that makes me want to keep the washer just for spite.
Replace the belt. We had that problem a while back.
The timer may be off. We had that issue with one of our washers. Out of warranty, of course.
My front loader washer does not spin fast on the last spin to get the water out of the clothes.
I have a Maytag Atlantis MAVT634AWW. It spins slowly and slightly off balance and is making a little noise. It sounds like it's coming from the bottom. I put in a new thrust bearing kit today, but it was no help. Do you have any idea what's going on? The tub bearing was changed last year, as well as, the belt.
Is it level? I know my Bosch had issues once when it was not level.
My, just about two years old, washing machine has just died on me! It is running and stopping, but doesn't spin or get the water out. Only when I force by using a button it does the specific action but again, not for too long. Shall I throw it and buy a new one or is there a way to replace the computer within?
By Joseph Di T.
Have you tried cleaning the drain? Look at your manual for the location and instructions. The drain flap should be at the front, on the lower part of the machine. Sometimes a coin or something gets stuck there and prevents the spinning. It's very easy to clean.
Now sure I understand about the button thing but I do know that my washing machine won't spin if I have the lid open.
My machine quit spinning fast. It gets to six minutes left in a cycle and then shuts off. I got error code 47. The guide said for that error code to replace the door lock. I replaced the door lock right away and it worked one time and then had the same problem. The next thing the guide said was to replace the main control board. I waited nearly a month for the part then put it in. I thought that fixed the problem. The machine worked just fine and spun for 4 loads and then experienced the same problem again.
I think maybe it's the belt? I think the belt maybe is stretched and then it shrinks a little when the machine is not used for a while. I think since the machine was not used for over a month this time it shrunk enough to do several loads before stretching out again.
I just put the machine into test mode while empty and no errors came up. I loaded my machine with wet clothes put it in test mode and it spun for a bit, but shook a lot and then threw error 55 "under speed". The tests for that involve the motor, bearings, and motor control board. I'm still thinking it might just be a loose belt as there were no errors when I ran the test mode with the machine empty and the machine did spin just fine for 4 loads after I replaced the main board before it stopped working again.
Machine is a Crosely (Frigidaire) cfw47000LWO (that is the letter O on the end).
I have an Estate heavy duty washer and it will not spin with a large or even medium load. Small loads without towels will spin just fine.
What should I look for to be the problem?
My 2000 KitchenAid washer will not spin the last cycle to remove all the water!
