Had the same problem. The water pump is not working and since it cant drain water it wont spin. A easy fix. There's a magnet located on the water pump thats comes lose. Simply tie it back into place.

SOURCE: My avanti w797, suddenly stoped

Hi,

There could be a couple of possibilities which are explained below :-

1. Lid switch is not being engaged .Remove rear top cover , Phillips screws - snap clips use flat blade screw driver to pop cover .Look at rear of lid (door) right side plastic arm part of lid snapped off replace lid, then check safety switch manually over ride switch as a test .If machine spins change lid if switch broken as well change both.

2. This could be a problem with pump.
There is a clog some where between the connector that hooks up to the sink and the other end of the water hose that connects to the washer. Remove the water hose end that connects to the washer and there should be a screen in the end. Either the washer side or the hose side of that connection. This screen protects the water valve from debris that comes through all water pipes and faucets. So as not to allow it to reach the water valve.
This valve is activated by a Solenoid. So either you will find a clogged hose or it has a defective water valve or solenoid.

Let me know,once you check all the above details.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Avanti W797 wont spin.


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Check this link to replace the inlet valve:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1408/how-to-replace-the-inlet-valve-on-a-washer-dr.html

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

Washer will not spin clothes


You should probably diet then, there may be too much booty in the pants for the unit to handle.
