Washing machines are an indispensable appliance in any home. They allow you to wash clothes quickly and efficiently, saving time and effort. However, like any other appliance, they can break down.

One of the most common problems with many washing machines is related to the malfunction of the spin cycle. In our article, we will discuss the possible causes of this issue and ways to resolve it.

  • Spin cycle not functioning: when the washing machine is operating properly Before delving into the possible reasons why the washing machine may not be wringing out the laundry, it is necessary to ensure that the machine itself is being operated correctly.
  • In some cases, the issue may lie in the incorrect loading of laundry. It is also possible that a non-spin washing program has been selected. Therefore, before further diagnosing the problem, you need to check the condition of the washing machine and ensure that the appropriate washing program is selected.
  • The washing machine does not wring out or wrings out the laundry poorly. Possible reasons Imbalanced washing machine drum One of the most common reasons why the washing machine does not wring out the laundry is due to the drum being imbalanced. If the laundry is unevenly distributed in the drum of the washing machine, it may cause vibrations and skip the spin cycle. In this case, you should rearrange the items to distribute them evenly in the drum. If this does not help, you need to check if the balancing device is damaged.
  • “No spin” program selected. Another reason for the spin problem may be the selected washing program. Check the set mode and ensure that the spin function is activated. If this does not resolve the issue, then there may be a need to replace the timer or other controls responsible for the spin operation.
  • Overloading. Overloading can also lead to spin problems. If too much laundry is loaded into the drum, the machine may not be able to execute the spin cycle properly. It is recommended to load the washing machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions to avoid this problem.
  • Blockage. A blockage in the water drainage system can also lead to spin problems. It is recommended to clean the filter regularly to prevent blockages in the system. Additionally, check the drain pipe and drainage system for any obstructions.
  • Faulty interference filter. One of the most common reasons why a washing machine does not wring out laundry is a faulty interference filter. It is an essential part of the washing machine designed to protect the pump from small objects (e.g., coins, buttons, handkerchiefs) entering its chamber.
  • If the interference filter is clogged or damaged, it may cause the washing machine to fail in wringing out the laundry. To check the condition of the interference filter, open the door of the washing machine and locate it at the bottom of the drum of the device. Usually, it is a small round hole with a transparent lid. If the interference filter cover is not transparent, then it is necessary to remove it and check for any objects or dirt inside.

The washing machine does not wring out. What to do?

Check the program settings firstly, verify if you have selected the correct washing program. You may have inadvertently chosen a non-spin program.

Ensure there is no blockage If the washing machine is not wringing out, there may be some objects left in the drum that could be obstructing the process. Inspect the drum for any blockages and remove anything that may impede proper operation.

Check if the machine is level If the washing machine is not wringing out, it may not be standing on a flat surface. Check if the machine is stable and not vibrating excessively during operation.
