Washer fills with water, loud thump sound, no agitation occurs.


The thump is probably the motor trying to start followed by the burning smell of the belt slipping. See if something is jammed, but the most likely thing there is a bad transmission.

Washer won't do anything but fill.


It is very likely that the motor has burned out. What happens is that the water solenoid allows water to fill to a certain point where a fill sensor stops it. The program then moves on to activate the motor which will agitate the wash. So when power is supplied to the motor, it tries to start, overheats because of a break down of insulation in the windings, and you smell burning. Replace the motor.

Electrical Burning smell when agitating, trips breaker.


Send your complete model number, just to make sure we are working on same washer.
First check the lid latch switch by unplugging washer first and remove the font panel. Look up to where the switch is mounted. I am not positive that is your [problem but know there has been many problem with that switch. It will begin to melt ad cause the power to motor to be lost in a bad connection.

NO Agitator, draining or spin


Since the breaker did not trip i am going to assume that the washer stopped because the motor overload switch tripped or contacts burnt. Was there any smell of any burning (electrical burning)?. It could have stopped because a contact on the timer got burnt too. Have a look also at the water level swirch
