How to fix a washing machine that won’t spin

Your washing machine has to rotate its drum to blend and clean the load. The drum will also spin (but faster) while water is being taken from clothes. If the drum won’t spin whatsoever, find out if among the following will resolve the issue.

Make sure that the door is sealed accurately

If your washing machine detects that its door is open, it won’t begin working. Be certain that the door is securely turned off. Get rid of things that get captured in the door and drive it sealed until you hear a locking sound.

Ensure that the load is evenly distributed

Laundry that’s unevenly distributed inside the drum may cause harm to your washing machine. To avoid this, Beko washing machines will immediately examine the load and prevent the spinning process if it’s sent out unevenly within the drum.

Absorbent items for example rugs and blankets are usually the reason. To protect yourself from unbalanced loads, wash bulky things like blankets with a minimum of one other heavy item like a big towel or an additional blanket. If the drum stops spinning mid-cycle, try halting the machine, draining the water and ordering the laundry.

Stay away from excessive detergent

You could be using too much detergent or an improper type for your appliance. In this instance, your washing machine will minimize the spinning cycle and attempt to absorb the excess foam in its drum. Browse the instructions on the detergent packaging to determine if it’s the best type for your washing machine. Ensure that you’re using a maximum of the recommended dose.

See if there’s water left in the drum

The spinning cycle won’t begin if the water hasn’t drained totally. Shut off your washing machine and look at the drain hose and the pump filter. The hose shouldn’t be curved or blocked. Unclog or straighten it if required. Substitute dripping, punctured or rusted hoses. Clean your drain pump every 3 months to prevent blocking.

Look into the drive belt for harm

Open the door and try switching the drum with your hands. If it comes with no opposition at all, your washing machine’s drive belt could possibly be broken or cracked. In cases like this, please make contact with an authorised service agent.

Consider technical failure

Your washing machine probably has quit due to an electrical spike. Unplug your appliance, wait for a minute and then plug it back in. Begin the programme again. If the problem proceeds, your washing machine probably has a technical problem. If you suspect this to be the case, contact an authorised service agent.
