Why Won't My Washer Spin?

If your washer won’t spin, start by removing your wet clothes and hanging them out to dry. You will need two trees, string, clothespins and some old-fashioned dance music. Use the moment to think back to simpler times and discover that you’re grateful you don’t actually live in simpler times. Next, go to your computer and let Repair Clinic help you figure out exactly why your washing machine wont spin. Could be a variety of reasons, from a faulty door latch to a worn drive pully or defective tub bearing. A systematic approach is required, which is why Repair Clinic developed a system that’s worked for twenty years.
