Washer Won’t Drain/Washer Won’t Spin
A washer that won’t drain can a different problem from a washer that won’t spin. Your washer may not be draining because it won’t spin. Or, it may not be able to spin because it won’t drain.
The reason your washer won’t drain may be due to a clogged drainage hose. This happens more often when a household has pets. Washing machine drain hoses are not very wide, so they can get clogged with hair, pet hair, lint and other debris.
The drainage hose may also have somehow become kinked or bent.
Modern washers are built so that they only spin when the lid is shut. This is to protect users from accidental injury. Your washing machine lid is equipped with a plastic projection that goes into a hole when you close the lid. Inside this hole is the spin switch. If the switch is broken, your washer won’t be able to go through the spin cycle.
The problem also may be with a belt or pump.
Clothes Are Still Wet & Soggy
Other times, your washer spins and the tub is empty at the end of the cycle, but the clothes are still wet and heavy. They will take forever to dry if you put them in the dryer this way.
Often, the reason for this problem is an unbalanced load of large or heavy items like sheets and towels. Did you notice your washer making a lot of noise during the spin cycle? Has it moved from its regular spot on the floor? If so, try redistributing the washer’s contents more evenly and running the spin cycle again. If the washer slows down and starts to make a banging noise as it begins to spin, try again.
Another reason for soggy clothes after a spin cycle is tht your washer may be unbalanced. Check to make sure all four corners of your machine are on solid ground at all times.
