Hello,

First, try the below troubleshooting tips;

Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Check for drainage problems, which can stop the machine from spinning. Make sure the drain hose isn't kinked and that the drain outlet at the wall isn't clogged. Verify that the machine actually drains at the wall drain by listening for the water.

Add one or two similar items to the load if the cycle won't spin; it's possible that the load is too small, and the additional items will help balance the load.

Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning.

Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Firstly look to check nothing is stuck in the pipes as in coins or wire from bras etc..these will always cause problems for the machines... if this isnt the problem it may be a fuse. Or worst case senario one of the boards needs replacing.

Washing Machine will not start


either your door actuator is broken or the door switch itself. look at the door and see if the latch(actuator) is broken or loose. If not order a door switch. It can be changed easy if you remove the retainer from the bellows and loosen it from the front of machine.
Hope that helps
