Question about Washing Machines
I have a 7 year old Whirlpool washer that has had a lot of use. It has just stopped working, in the middle of the cycle. It won't drain, although it will spin. It makes a loud buzzing noise as well. The hoses and filters are all clear. I've tried turning it off, unplugging it, resetting it. Nothing seems to work. I have a washer full of dirty water and a pile of dirty laundry that is growing by the day!!
sounds like you've got coins or other pocket debris jamming the pump.if you turn the machine on its side to view underneath you will see a 2" DIa hose coming from the drum this leads to the pump.Using a pair of mole grips you can remove this hose from the pump and clear whats jamming it. hope this helps

It is probably a bushing (or coupler). I always forget the name. About $20. I have a Whirlpool washer from 1989. I called a Sears repairman out when it was 7 years old. The guy was nice and replaced it for $94. I watched what he did and he explained it to me. I guess he didn't know I could figure it out (just not the part name!). I have replaced that part going on 3 times. The part it about 1 - 1 1/2 inches round (or maybe oval a little with a thin rectangular cut-out in the middle. Perhaps two holes on each side. I last replaced it in 2004. About to replace it again. Good luck.
