Make sure washer is on a level surface and all four feet adjusted properly. A slight forward lean may help with this problem as the out of balance switch is at the rear.

Why does my washing machine not complete a rinse & spin cylcle?


is it a top loader? if so, older top loaders do not have a balancing function so you must evenly distribute the load.

Always out of balance


out of balance is from the tub not level and or the air dampeners on the ends of the suspension rods are broken( top loader machines ---machine type not stated --
if it is a top loader and you laid it on its side , it is possible that the tub is now not level and the dampeners have been damaged

My Kenmore 500 top loading washing machine wont work right. sometimes it will work and other times it wont. I will put a load in it and sometimes when it hits the rinse cycle it seems like it gets stuck...


for the top loading washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, if clog your drain pump of some hair pins,cotton buds or coins or any small item,that the cause of water stuck,and it will long time draining or totally not running the drain pump.and its cause of stop of cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time,because after washing the pump must be on to remove water before start the next cycle.and the unit top load have drain pump you must be up the drain hose up to 90cm from floor lever to make the water lever is make in normal,the water automatically goes out by drain pump.
and for unbalance most of all top loader have problem in unbalance, the main reason is overload or the type of cloth you wash.

My 5 year old Hoover 500 mb has started to stop mid cycle or not progress through the cycle !


Mate, I just had the same fault with the same model machine. The local machine repair man called me (i'm a sparky) to double check things for him. The macine stopped at the pre wash rinse part of the cycle every load. He replaced the timer with two NEW ones which both had the same fault as the original. We now suspect an inherrent fault in the timer design but as yet dont have an answer.
