This washer just passed its one year mark and we now have a problem when trying to start a cycle. The machine will lock the door, spin once or twice, wait a few seconds and then attempts fill the machine with water. The sound it makes while trying is a medium to fast thumping sound, similar to a water pump that isn't passing water. This seems to go on indefinately, with no water filling the machine. I have checked the water at the hoses (is ok), and have checked the inlet valve screens (not clogged). Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello John, The most probable reason the washer is not filling is because of a blown fuse that is part of the lid switch asm. By UNPLUGGING THE WASHER and removing the 2 INNER screws on the the control panel and the control panel can be rotated down to see the fuse in the lid switch asm. Here is where the fuse is on the switch asm. its circled in red
1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the houseplumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug it,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking
2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement
Make sure your cold water tape is turned on and the screen in the water valve is not plugged up, it may be trying to fill with cold water and cant get any, try filling the washer with cold water on a "wash" cycle to confirm it it fills with "cold" then just the rince cycle ion the timer may be faulty and would need to be replaced
Hello, try to see if there's a good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine.If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to). If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve.
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
washer fills up but wont start washing i can turn the knob just passed the numbers and the little marks and it starts washing and when it gets to the rinse cycle it wont rinse but when it gets to spin cycle it spins good
When the unit completes its filling cycle, a relay will be activated to start the wash cycle. A 10 year old unit probably has dirty/corroded or otherwise malfunctioning relay contacts. This should be repaired by a qualified repairman as high voltages pass through these relays.
