SOURCE: make noise during wash cycle, has no agitator action and no spin during spin cycle/drain cycle

Looks like the bearings may have failed. TURN OFF the POWER and try and rotate the agitator/tub by hand. If it is jammed you should investigate why. Possibly caused by bearing failure or something wound around spindle.

Take care and do not attempt to investigate the problem without first disconnecting from the mains!

SOURCE: Loud banging noise durning washing machine spin cycles.

First plug off the wall. Open the machine from behind to examine if any shock-absorbers(known as dampers) or springs have come off or broken. Your dealer could help with spares. But you could do the job yourself.

SOURCE: The spin cycle spins very slowly and the clothes

Our front loading GE washer did the exact same thing. It took forever for a cycle to finish and the clothes would be sopping wet. The problem was a clogged up drain filter. There were coins and a couple bills and some odds and ends caught up in there that was preventing the water from draining out. The spin cycle can't get going full speed until some of the water has drained.

I'm not an "appliance expert", but I have checked and cleared the drain filter a few times on my machine. I'm not familiar with your exact washer. Here's how I did mine:
Take off the bottom panel by removing the small screws at the top of the panel. Look for the white, round, plastic piece toward the bottom, facing you. Put a basin underneath it to catch any water, then slowly unscrew the filter. (if your basin fills up too fast just screw the filter back in and dump the basin, then repeat). Once you have it off you'll be able to immediately see any debris in there. Put the filter back in and the panel back on.

My kenmore top load washing machine washes but wont drain or spin


The spinning cycle may be detecting that your tub is unbalanced and will not proceed. Check that it starts and fails when the tub is spinning slowly. Otherwise you may have a faulty drain relay or debris is plugging the drain out hose.

Washer does not spin cycle, why?


In top load washers, if the machine goes through the cycles and then just stops at the spin cycle and leaves you with no noise and a tub full of water more than likely the lid switch is bad and not completing the circuit for cycle to continue. This is a safety precaution to prevent injury by reaching in the machine while at high speed spin. If the machine is getting to the spin cycle and still turning slowly but not draining the water, the pump is probably the culprit, either being locked up or in most cases something like a sock, etc. is stuck in it preventing it from turning. This is usually indicated by a humming sound during the spin/drain section with no water draining.

My maytag atlantis cycles but wont spin out. It spins slowly then shuts off but leaves wet clothes and water in tub.


First determine whether all the water is pumping out before it goes into spin. If not, check the pump and drain. If its not spinning fast enough with an empty tub check that there isnt any article of clothing caught between the inner and outer tubs or tub top ring. If thats ok check the clutch by turning the main drive pulley CCW. Substantial drag should be felt before the basket overcomes momentum and begins to turn. There is no repair for the clutch on this machine. The transmission must be replaced.

My washer will spin but very slowly. Motor and shaft spins out of washer.


Your problem sounds like the drum/tub drive clutch is worn. Especially if the motor operates fine and attempts to spin the tub. This model is a direct drive unit, no belts, so if the motor operates during the spin and drain cycles but the tub is barely moving, only two problems can cause this, bad clutch (which is engaged only during the spin cycles) or worn drive coupling on the motor. If the coupling were a problem, though, you would also notice sluggish or erratic agitation during the wash cycle.

Hope this helps
