Siemens washing machine will not spin.

Here is a step by step guide of the process:

There are a number of reasons why your Siemens washing machine will not spin,

1                 Siemens washing machine carbon brushes do wear down and this can cause a spinning problem with your washing machine but, the machine has to be a few years old for this to be the problem and it is easily checked see our video on this or search our site for Siemens brushes, you can read more about how to check and replace washing machine carbon brushes here.

2                 If the washing machine carbon brushes are ok you need to get the motor checked then if it is neither of these it might be the  PCB, (printed circuit board) but check all simple faults before going to any expense.

3                 If your Siemens washing machine or washer dryer doesn’t spin the first thing to check is the filter, if the machine has one. Blocked filters are the most common cause of not spinning, often accompanied by the other fault, not draining. Pull the filter out and clear out anything that you find in the washing machine drain pump, for more on how to do this please see this the tutorial about washing machine drain pumps. You really should do this on at least a semi-regular basis anyway; most manufacturers say clear the filter every week depending on the amount of use. Once a month in our opinion.

If your washing machine does not have a filter then you can check the sump hose as there is normally a trap there to catch unwanted items like coins etc.

4                 PCB, (printed circuit boards) electronic modules or however you choose to refer to them do cause issues with spinning, or not spinning, but on most occasions  these are caused by other faults,

See other videos on Siemens repairs to try and find out why your Siemens washing machine will not spin.

Hi welcome to how to repair fault finding guides
This is on a Siemens washing machine that will not spin
There are three causes to this problem the first
Is you could have a blockage in the
Machine and therefore the machine it’s still full of water
And unable to go into the spin cycle the
Second fault is you may have a motor fault
Now this could be something simple like a set of
Brushes needing to be replaced or you may need to replace the motor
The third fault is it possibly could be a wiring harness fault
Or one of the printed circuit boards have stopped working correctly

    Thank you so much for saving me the time and cost of a service call out
    Your website helped me diagnose the cause of my Siemens washing machine failing to drain and spin (simple case of the filter being blocked ) and it is now working perfectly.
    Thank you again.

    Brand Siemens washing machine is vibrating a shaking all over the place. Only set for 800 rpm. It has a 1400 max rpm. Is flat and level and brand new. Any ideas?
