The wrong washing mode is selected in the washing machine
You could have chosen a washing mode with a minimum number of spin rotations or even chosen a washing mode without spinning. Such modes are typical when using delicate washing. Check the settings of the selected washing mode or try to run the washing machine only in spin mode;
Clogged drain filter in the washing machine
With prolonged use, the drain filter becomes clogged and can most likely be the cause of wet laundry after washing and the strong vibration of the washing machine. We advise you to refer to the operating instructions of your washing machine, where you will find the answer to the question of how to clean the drain filter. Be careful, in any case, water will usually flow from the filter. This is a normal phenomenon.
Regular cleaning of the filter is one of the necessary conditions for the normal operation of the washing machine. It serves as a “protective wall” between the pump and unwanted objects that fall into the tank with the laundry, so it is recommended to inspect the items before loading them into the washer. If the filter is clogged, then pumping water from the tank may become impossible and lead to pump failure.
In such brands of washing machines as LG, Candy, and Whirlpool (with vertical loading) the filter is usually located at the bottom left, in others – usually on the right side. There are models in which it is located inside the drum.
Incorrect operation of the speed control sensor
This sensor in the washing machine is responsible for determining the speed of the engine. A possible reason for its incorrect operation may be the loosening of the fastening of the speed control sensor itself. The speed control sensor is located on the engine shaft at the bottom of the washing machine. To get access to it, you will need to disassemble the back wall of the washing machine. It is easy to check the performance of the speed control sensor, it is enough to measure the voltage with a multimeter at its terminals. Scroll the engine by hand – the values should increase and be about 0.2 V. It is also necessary to check the reliability of the tacho sensor mounting. If it is not reliable (there is backlash), tighten it.
Incorrect operation of the stabilizer in the control module
This is the “brains” of the washing machine. It may be necessary to replace this board or reflash it. A malfunction of this module may be one of the reasons why the washing machine does not draw water, and also affect the ability of the unit to heat water.
How to check the sensor:
– using a small length of the tube, attaching it to a special connector (fitting), and blowing into the free end. If characteristic clicks are heard, then the water level sensor is working;
– use the tester, setting the resistance measurement mode on it. If the sensor is normal, the readings will change with increasing pressure.
Check the water pressure sensor itself for damage and assess the degree of wear of the tube (and patency), inspect the contact group – clean it if necessary. If these manipulations did not lead to the desired result, the part will need to be replaced with a similar one.
– if the spin does not work in the washing machine, it may be due to a breakdown of the washing machine drum motor
Possible causes of engine failure (or incorrect operation) are worn brushes, loose contacts, damaged drive belts, etc.
We have considered some reasons why the washing machine may not spin the laundry. The washing machine is not a simple mechanism, so the reasons for wet laundry after washing may be different.
