The f18 code that pops up in these models is related to the "contra-rotating" mode unique to this line. This mode is very tough on the gears and drum and they end up binding. The only "real" fix is a new drum assembly, which dyson has run out of for service parts. You can run the washer without using the contra-rotate mode and the unit will not act up. Other than replacing a no longer available part, some owners have found that by washing some oil-soaked articles (such as shop rags or towels drenched in motor oil), the offending parts binding issue can be lubricated away for quite some time. When the f18 error returns, they just wash some more oil into the problem area to make it disappear again.

My Kenmore compact washer with dryer on top, will not go from the first wash-rinse-drain-spin cycle to the second rinse-drain-spin-off cycle.


Check and make sure the door is pushed all the way down until you hear a click. If it starts with the next cycle, then your door switch may be bad. It's a pretty easy fix, but I would watch a video at least before doing it yourself.

A kenmore elite washer won't spin on rinse cycles. Does fine on first wash cycle, fills up for first rinse and then won't spin after that either on first or second rinse.


There are two plastic gears on each end of the motor inside the washer. One of them broke. These gears make the tub spin. They are inexpensive. it is rare that both gears broke but have both of them replaced. Then you don't have to worry about the second gear breaking in a few months.

My whirlpool top loader agitator machine will not spin when the cycle starts


check underneath the washer for a relay called wigwag. It changes the gear in transmition which allows the spin cycle and rinse to spin. Very easy fix if this is the problem, About $15.00 part and 10 minute change

My machine will fill & go thru a wash cycle but wont rinse or spin.


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Does not spin in most cycles


It sounds like your timer is defective.  If this is the case you will have to replace it.
