Kenmore He2t Frontloading Washer (110.47571603) Doesn't Spin
« on: August 06, 2012, 07:30:46 AM »

The problem only occurs when we are trying to wash a small amount of laundry like a bath rug or a couple of towels.  Everything works fine except the final spin.  After the final spin the door unlocks but the laundry is still soaking wet, not damp like it is when we run a full load.  Also, no fault codes are displayed.

Solution: only wash a large load!!!
Check pump cleanout, make sure no lint build up or coins.

     The problem is more than likely the small load.   When the washer tries to ramp up and spin,  it first goes through distribution.   This spins tub a little faster than wash speed,   and tries to evenly distribute load.   If load is off balance,   Machine will stop spinning as it ramps up speed and try to redistribute load.   If you only have a few things in there,  load can never be properly distributed and it will result in off balance condition.   End result - wet clothes.    So always try to put in a good sized load when running washer instead of 1 or 2 items.
