We know when our washing machines give us problems. We go to change our laundry and pull out a pile of sopping wet clothes. Don’t get hampered by misbehaving washing machines, let our experts explain why your washing machine does not spin.

Common Reasons Why Your Washing Machine Does Not Spin  

The most likely causes for why your washing machine does not spin range from something as simple as a door that’s not closing properly to problems with software, a timer, or the motor drive. 

It’s also important to perform certain maintenance tasks annually, to help keep your washer and dryer running smoothly. We offer annual appliance maintenance plans, under which we take care of important tasks like internal cleaning and inspection of washing machines and dryers, to make sure all parts are clean and in working order. Ask us about manufacturer guidelines for optimal washer maintenance and how we can ensure that your washing machine receives the annual care it needs.

Door/Lid Not Tightly Closed

For safety reasons, most washers will not spin without a fully closed door. Our washing machine experts will identify the cause of washer spin problems, replace any worn parts, and fix the problem. If your washer needs a new part, that won’t slow us down — we stock a wide range of commonly-used parts right on our trucks, so we can fix most problems on the spot.

We can also help keep your washer running smoothly with our maintenance plans, covering manufacturer-recommended annual maintenance tasks, such as internal cleaning and inspections.

Computer or Software Issues

Sometimes, turning a computer on and off (or “power cycling”) resets it and clears software problems. Modern washing machines contain internal computers, and turning off power to the machine will reset the software. Our expert washing machine technicians can identify the reasons for why your washing machine does not spin, replace broken or worn components, fix software issues, and make sure your washer runs as it should. We stock common electronic components for washers (such as capacitors, switches, and computer boards) on our trucks, enabling us to fix most washer problems at the time of diagnosis.

Software is not the only washer component that may need attention. Ask us about our annual washer maintenance plans, through which we can take care of important manufacturer-recommended tasks such as cleanings and mechanical tests — to keep your washer in excellent condition.

Timer Not Advancing

The timer is the knob that you use for selecting the appropriate washing machine cycle for cleaning your clothes. Like a clock, the timer has many gears and moving parts, all of which work together to keep the washing machine moving from cycle to cycle. If one of these parts gets stuck, the timer may stop working, and the cycling mechanism may fail. Consequently, the washer may get stuck mid-cycle. Our trained washing machine service professionals can fix timer issues or any other problems and make sure your washing machine spins as it should. We stock a wide variety of washer parts, including timers and knobs, on our repair trucks, so we can fix most washing machine timer problems right away.

To help preserve the life of your washing machine and all of its parts, we also offer annual maintenance plans, covering important tasks such as internal cleaning and inspections.

Motor Drive Issue (Belt, Transmission, Motor)

Many moving parts comprise the inner workings of the washing machine to regulate spinning and cycling activity. Problems in any of these moving parts can cause mechanical breakdown. For instance, the washing machine motor turns the tub via a belt; if the belt breaks, the tub and your washing machine does not spin. Similarly, the transmission shifts between spinning and agitation functions; if the transmission breaks, the washing machine will get stuck. Our expert washer repair team can diagnose the cause of washing machine spin problems, repair or replace broken or worn parts, and make sure the spin and wash cycles work properly. Our trucks are well-stocked with motor drive components, capacitors, belts, and other washer parts, so we can repair most washing machine problems on the spot.

Appliance manufacturers recommend annual inspection and cleaning, to keep washing machines and dryers functioning smoothly. Under our annual maintenance plans, we will take care of internal cleaning, test equipment, inspect hoses, and check mechanical parts, to help keep your washer running.
