When we use spin only on the washing machine it just adds water and spin slowly. It is not draining. If we pause and restart the process it drains all the water and starts the process all over again. Any idea what this might be?

    Blacsmith, what is the model number to the unit? Does it display any error code when it spins slowly?

    My washer is doing the same thing. Put on for spin only. Fills drum with water then slowly spins and drains. No error code on the display.

    How do you do spin only? I have a top load washer True Balance.  It says to press the “special use” button..I don’t have one??? I need to just drain the water from the clothes and it’s not doing it..water keeps going in when I click the “spin only” button but this add water in again. What the heck?!

    I'm right there with you, "Harmony"! 

    We have an LG WT7200CW top loader that has become "unbalanced" at least five times this afternoon.  The load contains five bath towels and two or three hand towels.  I've manually re-balanced the load three times, even though it looks perfectly dispersed already.  Each time, the machine's solution is to refill with water -- all the way to the top -- agitate for a bit, then choke during the drain-and-spin portion.  I can only imagine how much water this so-called water-and-energy conserving machine is wasting today... and it's STILL not done! 

    I would just wring them out and throw them in the dryer (an LG DLE7200WE), but it takes forever to dry even barely damp loads as it is.  Really not impressed with LG today!

    Darcydm...yes very frustrating indeed...My temporary solution was to put in fewer sheets or towels when doing that type of load...alittle inconvenient but working fine when putting in less.

    My new washer also is doing something similar. I pushed the special care spin only button and it adds water all the way to the top and does a bit of agitation and does not drain. Why is it adding water and why is it adding sooo much water on a spin only cycle? Model is Wt7600ha

    This just happened to me. Occurred after a Ue error where load was not balanced. I tried a “spin only” and it just kept spinning and adding water, repeatedly. To reset, I read somewhere to run an empty load of “Rinse+Spin,” which I just finished and had no issues.
