Hello, this is Dave. Can you supply the model number so I can better assist you.
If this is a top load it is under the lid. A front load is inside the door. Without this I won;'t know what style you have.
If this is an older mode it may be on the back. Without the mode number I won't be able to help you.
Are the clothes pushed out to the sides at all? Maybe it didn't spin at all and only drained?
Could be something clogged and draining sloly etc. I won't be much help without knowing your model. I will opt out.
Hi. I'm Smitty. Dave has opted out of your question so I will see if I can get you going again.
The model number is ***** of hidden. look way towards the back of the open lid. It may have soap residue covering it.
That will be fine. I will be off and on as I am doing some plumbing work here at home. I will be up for at least 3 more hours.
sorry but that is not a good model number. the model number will be located on the manufacturers label.
It will be something like, or similar to LLLNNLNN where N= number and L= letter
Okay. LOL! one moment please.
Okay. It looks like you may have lost a drive belt. Pull the unit out and tip it back far enough so you can look under it. There are two belts. make sure that both are on the pulleys. Let me know what you find.
Okay. if belts are ok then the next thing we need to do is confirm that the unit is spinning. If it is then we will have to locate the restriction.
Start a cycle and let the unit fill. Once the fill cycle stops advance it to a spin cycle. It should pump out the water and start to spin.
Let me know what you find.
Sure. I will be in and out all day tomorrow but will check in when I can.
Sorry for not replying sooner. Been a crazy day. Expecting snow tonight and many of my regular customers are elderly and freak out when they hear the word snow.
It seems that your break is not releasing completely to allow the tub to spin up to full rpm. This is a common issue with these type of units. If you are mechanically inclined I can provide you with the service information. It is not a job for a novice DIYer, but with a decent box of hand tools, and me here to help, it can be done.
Let me know if you want to tackle this and I will upload the information.
Not tired yet, but I will be when I get off from my part time job tonight (doorman at the local nightclub). I'll upload the manual for you be just a few minuets.
Please click here to download the manual. If you have any questions just post them here. I'm off to a hot shower and then its back to work.
It starts on page 3-41. Before you tear it apart tilt the unit so you can access the drive pulley. Turn it clockwise and see if the brake is disengaging. If it doesn't it will be hard to turn. Also check that the drive belt is not shiny. If it is that indicates that the belt is worn out and needs to be replaced.
