My washing machine is not spinning properly

Sometimes you might find that your washing machine is not spinning properly at the end of the cycle. This is either because the load is unbalanced, or it can’t drain water properly. Whatever your problem, we’ve got easy-to-follow solutions for your machine. So, you’ll have no trouble getting your gym kit ready or the kids’ school uniforms sorted in plenty of time.

It's not spinning at the end of the cycle

Your washing machine will have Out of Balance protection. This is a safety feature that senses if the distribution of your clothes is off. It automatically moves them about to balance them out in the drum before the spin cycle starts. Your machine can often get unbalanced if you’re trying to wash a single heavy item, like a quilt or a bath mat. If it’s stopped spinning altogether, try moving the clothes around yourself to balance everything out and try again.

It's not spinning because it can't drain water

Another problem might be because your washing machine can’t drain the water properly. There may be something stuck in a pipe, or there may be some excess water somewhere. You’ll need to check if the pump filter is in the right position on your machine. For more information on solving this issue, check out our troubleshooting article on the link below.
