Washing Machine Won’t Spin: Can it be Repaired?

Home Alliance Tech Expert

Absolutely yes! Depending on the problem, your washing machine may be able to be repaired. Common problems that cause a washer not to spin include worn belts, broken drive motor coupler, or faulty lid switch. The lid switch may need replacing if you have a top-loading washer. If you have a front-loading machine, then the drive motor coupler may need to be replaced. Lastly, if the washer isn't spinning at all, then it's likely that you need to replace the washing machine belt. The good news is that these repairs are relatively straightforward and can usually be done in an hour or two. Of course, calling in a professional is best if you are not comfortable attempting the repair yourself. But with the right tools and a little bit of elbow grease, most people can fix their washing machine on their own. Just remember to unplug the machine before attempting any repairs!
