Yeah it spins but it just wont kick up to the fast spin to dry

How fast is it spinning roughly?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
It kinda tumbles then speed up to a little faster speed but not fast enough for the clothes to "stick" if that makes sense
Customer reply replied 7 months ago

Im just wondering how long it will be will it be like tomorrow i need to go to bed soon got to wake up at 4 am

Not too long, remove the top of the unit set it to drain/spin cycle and remove the pressure tube from the pressure switch and see if it spins fast.

Its spinng max speed

OK then the unit is not sensing the balancing right. Does it seem to stop and then start to spin again with clothes in it?

I'm about to readjust the legs on bottom and try to run som clothes and see what happens
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
But yes it just seemed to tumble then drain over and over
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
My wife had a really heavy sweater in there maybe it just wouldnt balance it self but i figured i would get some sort of unbalanced load error

Yes try that and if that does not correct it you would have something wrong with the tachometer on the motor, which would happen on that unit. Normally you would receive an error code though. See if that legs make any difference and make sure it is solid corner to corner on the floor no movement at all. If the load is really unbalanced it will just keep trying to balance it then time out so it could just be a load issue.

All I ask is...Please remember to use the RATING LINK ON YOUR PAGE by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today. Even though you paid the site they will not disburse any part of it to me until you supply a good rating. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
