The motherfucker won't go into the spin cycle!! Damn!
Open up the bottom and right before the spin engages try turning it by hand
That happened to me once when my machine was only a year old. Turned out to be a dinky car stuck in the motor.
I now pay $21/month, to cover all of my major appliances and any servicing they might need.
And no - I am NOT referring to my vagina.
HATE when my dinky gets caught in the motor.
If it's a top load model, you probably have a broken timer. Easy as hell to remove and replace. If it's a front loader, call a repairman.
Too bad I would have only charged $15
Too drunk to open it up tonight, guess I will take a few screws out of the back tomorrow to see if the belt is broken, fuck if I know.
I'd fix them for "free" if I lived close to you.
Could be, thanks bro.
If everything else is working, it's not the belt. How could the belt be broken if it does the regular cycle?
look inside or underneath. If you see oil (even a tad bit), its a bad clutch assemply. Time to buy another one. If not, it is probably the timer. You dont need to replace it, just get a little sand paper and clean the burbnt points. If it is the timer, you will see what I am talking about right away.
I don't know, damn!! Guess I'll check the damn timer.
Will do when I sober up some. Thanks brotha.
Had a washing machine that wouldn't go into final rinse spin cycle. Ended up being the switch for the lid lock was stuck in the open position(electrically speaking), which tells the washer you have the lid open so as a safety feature it won't go into final rinse without the lid being closed. Easy check, disconnect the leads from it, test for continuity with a meter when depressing the switch. 30 bucks for a new switch.
The washing machine, while seemingly underwhelming when compared to computers, space shuttles, etc... is really one of the most important and relied-upon innovations of the last century.
I mean it's easy to overlook. But imagine hand-washing all your clothes. Fuck THAT. I barely get around to doing my wash every 2 weeks even WITH a washer and dryer. (Luckily I have a lot of clothes).
if it's a Frigidaire, shoot it with a 12 gauge
