If the machine is filling up, then cycling and draining, the
problem is usually the belt. The belt is reached disassembling the appliance . If the belt is OK the problem is usually the motor or the motor control unit, which is a sealed electronic module connected to motor and to control board and located inside the washer. If the motor
has volts and does not turn, then the motor must be replaced. In some
less common case the control module itself may be responsible. Motor assembly and belt are located at the back of the drum and get accessed disassembling top and back of the washing machine.
If the machine does not go through the cycle, but it starts draining from start, then the problem is overfill detected. In that case check the drain system, the drain hose, the inlet valve and the pressure switch.
its very common for front load washers to have the water pump to freeze up.
ever washed something with sand or little rocks or rubber bands?
flip the washer to the side, then locate the water pump. take the filter and the hoses around the water pump. sometimes the water pump too, to make sure that the fins on the water pump are free and not stuck. put everything together and try the cycle. when the water pump is stuck it will cause the error and will not go into the spin cycle.
Sounds like the main drum bearings have gone.
Turn the drum by hand and if it feels rough or noisy , the bearings have gone.
There should be little or no noise when you turn the drum by hand.
It is quite an involved repair , as it entails a complete strip down.
Plz rate my comments. Tanks, and merry xmas.
1. Set the washing machine on the highest water level, temperature on hot and the wash cycle to normal.
2. Fill a gallon jug with hot tap water. Once the cycle begins, let it
run for a minute or two, then stop the cycle, open the lid and slowly
add the gallon of hot tap water. Don't overfill — you just want to
raise the water level so that it is able to reach and clean the inside
3. Add 2 to 4 cups of household chlorine bleach and restart the cycle.
In a couple of minutes, stop it again and just let it sit for at least
30 minutes. Afterward, let the cycle finish, and open the lid to air
out the inside.
