Laundry is one of those mundane chores we take for granted — typically we put a load in the washer and then move on to other tasks for a while. When we return we’re expecting a clean load of clothes that just needs to spend some time in the dryer before we can wear them again. It can be a big disappointment if you discover instead that your washing machine is refusing to spin and your clothes are still dirty.

Common Reasons Why A Washer Won’t Spin

There are several problems that can cause this and we’re going to take a closer look at some of the common ones. It could be something simple or it may be a more complicated mechanical failure. We’ll look at how you can identify the difference and help you decide if it’s better to attempt the repairs on your own or seek professional help.

Sometimes there’s a simple reason why your washing machine does not spin and that’s because the door is not closing. Check to see if there might be something stuck in the door preventing it from shutting all the way.

If you can’t see any obstructions from your laundry load there are other causes that may not be as easy to fix on your own. The most common is a broken door latch — it’s possible the mechanism may need to be replaced.

In terms of repairs, if a broken door latch is the reason that your washer is not spinning, it’s also one of the easiest problems to fix. It’s an issue that many homeowners feel comfortable tackling on their own. If do-it-yourself projects just aren’t your thing SMS Appliances is available for fast and reliable repairs whenever you need us.

Perhaps after taking our washing machine apart we might find that there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with the drive belt. A worn-out belt isn’t the only reason that your washing machine may stop working of course. There are several potential causes of why your washing machine is not spinning.

One other major reason that a washing machine drum will stop spinning is that the drive motor isn’t working. Without a working motor to turn the belt, the belt can’t engage with the drum causing it to spin. The concept is straightforward although the repair process is a little more involved than the average repair.

If you were to take apart your frontload or top load washing machine one of the first things you’d notice is a belt that connects your machine’s drum to a motor. If that drive belt is broken you’ll have a washer that’s not spinning dry. When this happens you won’t be able to clean your clothes and that can be a problem if you have a large load of laundry to do.

We don’t recommend replacing a drive belt yourself unless you have a high degree of technical knowledge. When your washing machine isn’t spinning properly because of an issue with your drive built, your best option is to contact Fix Appliances for professional help.
