Washing Machine Stops Mid-Cycle Or Won’t Spin? Here’s What’s Wrong

Have you noticed that your washing machine stops mid-cycle? Is your washing machine not spinning at all? If you’re experiencing either of these issues, then your laundry loads aren’t getting clean—can’t have that! Let’s get to the bottom of the issue.

Why Your Washing Machine Stops Mid-Cycle

Your washing machine may be acting up for a couple of reasons, such as an unbalanced laundry load or a faulty laundry spin cycle drain process. Learn more about each of these causes to find out what’s behind your washing machine conundrum and what to do next!

Potential issues

  • washer drum not spinning properly
  • washer shutting down during the spin cycle

A washing machine spins at high speeds to make sure that clothes get completely clean. If the weight of what you're washing isn't distributed evenly over the bottom of the drum, it can affect how the drum spins and cause several issues. Problems can range from the usual banging against the cabinet to the washer shutting down during the spin cycle and displaying a UL error. This can happen during the normal agitation cycle or if the clothes are loaded to one side with a vertical agitator. To avoid this issue, always make sure that the contents of your washer are placed evenly around the drum.
