Scenario: When washing a regular amount of clothing, first it spins very slowly and then stops spinning.
When it stops spinning we can hear a noise like the motor is spinning.
If with a very few amount of clothing it seems to be OK.
What’s the problem?
the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can’t spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it’s defective, you need to replace it.
If the washer motor is running:
The washer probably has a Frozen Pump Pulley or a Broken Pump Belt.
To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn’t turn freely if it’s frozen or stiff replace it.
If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
