Spin cycle does not work.
For safety reasons, the machine will not enter the spin cycle with the
lid up. Occasionally, the lid detection switch will break, causing the
machine to act as if the lid is up when the lid is actually down.
Often, these switches can be easily repaired.
Leaks. Leaks do not go away
by themselves. Instead, leaks usually get worse over time and, if
ignored, can harm other parts of the machine and your floor.
No button depressed. If
your machine has a series of cycle control buttons, only one button
should be depressed at a time. When multiple buttons are depressed at
once, the machine does not run. Before calling for service, try
changing the cycle setting by fully depressing a different button.
Overloaded machine. Overloading a washing machine causes excess wear on bearings, belts, and other components.
Oversoaping. Too much soap
will not clean the clothes any better than the recommended amount. Lift
the lid near the end of the agitating (wash) cycle. If you have a
couple of inches of soapsuds on top of the water, use less soap.
Vibrating noise. Check to
see if the machine is level by adjusting the machine’s leveling feet.
Be sure the locking nut is tightened against the washer base; this
maintains the adjustment. Leveling feet are devices located underneath
the machine that rotate clockwise and counterclockwise to shorten or
lengthen the legs of the washer.
Thumping. A thumping noise
when your washer is running is commonly caused by clothing that has
shifted during the cycle. Open the lid and readjust the clothing,
evenly distributing it within the tub.
Spin cycle noise. Rumbling, noisy spin cycles may be indicative of drum bearing or transmission failure.
