I would fill the tub again, let it agitate a little and then start scooping the floaties up with a kitchen sieve.  Don't let it pump water until you think you have most of the styrofoam beads out of it again. Unless they are a different product than I'm familiar with, they shouldn't really damage the pump even if they are cheap plastic pieces of junk.

Washed a pillow and it exploded. Cleaned it out filled again did not wash does not make a sound does not spin does not empty NOTHING


If it is a front end washer some of the pillow maybe stuck behind the rubber between the door and the washer tub. Pull back the rubber and see if anything is stuck behind it. All the fibers from the pillow may have jammed the tub and made the machine overheat. Clean out anything you can reach and see if that frees up the tub. If the tub is moving look in your owner's manual and see if their is a reset button. Also check and see if the electrical fuse is kicked off, especially since most washing machine are on GFI outlets which are easily set off.

Hello. I think this is the model..it looks


Well Bridie no there is no lint filter inside your washer the only possible explanation, is either old lint and particles are coming from previous washes. or you have just washed something recently that may have come apart such as a pillow, a mat with a rubber backing, or even a blanket with any sort of fiber material in it. It is more than likely that much of the lint that goes through your machine is unseen and can cause pump issues. hope this helps.

Thanks

Clogged screen on water intake.


it should just come out with a nice firm, but gentle pull. problem is u need to be careful because if its that clogged up, its probably weak and might break. U can always just buy new ones at sears, or home depot.

Waont drain


I would check the pump.
Follow the drain hose back to the pump, disconnect the outlet hose from the pump and disconnect the inlet hose from the pump. Look inside both hoses and the pump for pillow pieces.

The pump may have to be removed for cleaning, you should be able to turn the pump by hand, if not, replace the pump.

Inner tub.
Run some water in the washer with the inlet hose disconnected from the pump. You'll need a pan or bucket for the water to run into and look for pillow pieces.
