When your washing machine doesn’t spin, it may be causing your clothes to remain soaking wet or for your items to not be cleaned properly. However, this might not necessarily mean you have to get an expensive repair service to fix it.
Here are some troubleshooting tips that you can try before calling an appliance repair technician:
- Jammed clothes: Check to make sure that there are no clothes jammed in the drum and that the load is balanced correctly.
- Lid switch: There should be a tab on the lid that slots into a lid switch when the lid is lowered or shut. If the tab is broken, or the switch doesn’t click when you test it, it will prevent your washer from spinning. This piece may need to be replaced.
- Drive belt: The machine’s drive belt may be loose, broken, or worn down. You can replace this belt or tighten it down yourself without contacting a repairman.
- Control panel issues: If the washing machine isn’t spinning and also doesn’t seem to respond to any buttons being pressed, there might be a problem with the controls themselves. This would require repair service.
