Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.


Can you recheck the model number it doesn't seem to come up? Does the water drain from this? And then just not go to spin? Or is the water not draining?

Okay great that does come up, so this does drain but just doesn't spin once it's done draining? Stops at 7 min. from what you're saying. Is it showing any fault codes at all or has it ?

I just see err no number

Okay and you probably have these machines is the door switch, these won't spin if the door switch fails even if it's locked doesn't mean it's sending the signal to the main control board telling it that the machine is locked, you need to order and replace this, I am including a link below where you can order the part and it also has a video to show you how to replace it. Thanks and best wishes, Bryan
