West Los Angeles Washer & Dryer Repair Service reports that sometimes top-loading washing machines fail to spin owing to a defective washing machine lid switch. This switch which is located near the door frame inside the machine's primary housing, is easily replaced. If the problem is a belt, it is important to replace it with a belt from the appropriate manufacturer.
Front-loading washing machines fail to spin for other reasons, including problems with the door lock, according to West Los Angeles Washing & Dryer Repair Service. A clogged water pipe can also prevent a front-loading washer from spinning. If this is the case, the solution is to clean out the pump trap.
RealEstate recommends that when diagnosing problems with a machine spin cycle, check the simplest possibilities first, such as an unbalanced load or worn or broken belt. It also notes that it is important to unplug the machine from the electrical outlet when working on moving parts.Learn more about Washers & Dryers
