It is making unusual noises
You have to have a sharp eye or ear on this one. There might be objects trapped in between the outer tub and drum that’s causing all the fuss. Common retrieved items are coins and debris that are from around the heater between the drum and it can cause damage to the machine and your clothing. Make sure to clear out all pockets before giving them a spin.
With constant dirt, soon enough the bearings of the washing machine will also start to degrade and become faulty causing a loud noise while spinning. Operating a washing machine with a faulty bearing can cause fatal damage. If your washing machine might have this problem then it should be time to call a washing machine repair service.

There might be a variety of causes, either the switch is faulty, there is a hole in the pressure pipe or it has come off, or there is a blockage in the pressure chamber. Do a quick switch check, blow into it, and listen for one or two clicks, if you hear them then it’s fine. A close inspection of the hose should indicate if it’s working well or not, just make sure to remove and wash the chamber to clear it. If you attach a filter to the water intake pipe, make sure you clean the filter.
It’s not spinning
Connect both the spinning mechanism and drainage system. if the drainage doesn’t work then the machine will definitely not spin. There is a blockage in the pump filter or the hose from the drum connected to the pump. It is also possible that the motor’s carbon brushes may be worn-out, if the motor does not have brushes then there is a chance that the motor capacitor failed. In some cases the motor belt from the drum may have snapped. Need further assistance? Call for washing machine repair services.
