Hey folks! I've got a washer that will fill, agitate, and drain, but will not spin. What it does during the spin cycle is make a loud humming sound. It's not a nice, soothing musical humming sound, either.

I've looked at the drive while the spin was engaged, I don't see the clutch move at all. Also, I've had the coupler out, and it looks perfect. Besides, there would be no agitation if the coupler was broken, right? Is this a busted transmission? I hope I gave enough info...

Thanks in advance!

... during the spin cycle is make a loud humming sound.

is the Motor turning at all ?
Is there something caught in the Pump ?
Try it with the Pump removed.
With the Motor removed, can you turn the Coupler both ways ?

Well, the pump works pretty well during the spin cycle, so I have to assume the motor is turning.

I don't know if the coupler will turn both ways, though. Can I just turn the motor axle with the pump off to see that it works?


Thanks for the help!

If the Motor is turning during Spin, then the Coupler is turning..
Also, that Transmission has a Neutral Drain Mode.
Drain Pump runs with Transmission in Neutral for a few minutes,
then the Timer pauses for a few seconds,
when the Motor / Transmission starts again, it then enters the Spin Cycle.

Try this, after the water gets pumped out for a few minutes,
open the Washer Lid for a few seconds, then close the Lid.
Dies it Spin now ?

By the way, the motor moves easily in both directions. And no, I can't get it to work in the spin cycle, even following your directions.

Thank you!

Oh, I also just tried to spin the drum while it was trying to engage the spin cycle, and all the noise did was change pitch. I wonder if the spur gear on the spin cycle part of the transmission is the broken part...

Very good/high probability of that if the clutch bell isn't spinning and you know without a doubt the coupler is good. Make sure you don't have one half of the coupler slipping on the motor or transmission shaft under the load of spin, much easier for agitate then spin.

I had the motor off earlier, and the coupler was perfect. :)


Thank you for the reply!
