My washer quit last night. When I open it there is still water in it (not visible but under the clothes compartment) and it won't spin. When I turn it on I can here the motor but it sounds as if it isn't engaging. I've owned it since 2001 and have had no problems until now. Any suggestions? Is it something I can fix or do I need to call a repair person?

Re: won't drain all the way and won't spin
Inkl ,can you here the water sloshing around?this is normal,it is in the tub itself used for balast.this machine uses a seperate electric pump.if you can look at the control board in the top console and see if r-111 is burnt. (you will tell if it is don't worry about the # you will see a burnt resistor) then you will need a new control and door switch..you must replace them both or a new board will burn out.

Remove the lower rear cover of washer.
Locate and remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean the filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should solve your problem.

This JUST happened to me last night. Opened washer after a load and still full of water. Fifteen spins later, still about an inch of water in tub... RepairClinic.com suggests checking the hoses from the washer tub to the drain pump for anything clogged in it. (WARNING!!! As soon as you remove one end of the hose ANY water remaining in the tub will come RUSHING out if not clogged. I was prepared for water, but not a rush of water.) If there is no clog in that hose, remove the drain pump and check for something in it. (My pump was burning up because some how a plastic stick got into it. I am waiting on the new pump now.) If there is nothing in the first hose or the pump, see if anything is in the hose leading to the drain.
If not, they suggested something either purchasing a new pump as it may have quit working or something may have gotten stuck in between the tubs. This requires tearing apart and sometimes special tools.
Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the
second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold
water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to
rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the
washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the
suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.
Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting
does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full
and agitating is there suds in the washer?
Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of
the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap
water before the next load
you may have blockage in the drain pipe several feet from washer. if you can run spin cycle with hose in different location ex. tub,sink or outdoors. if this works run long snake down washer drain pipe to clean gypsum residual.
sounds like two seperate problems. firsst water running from under your machine might be a bad seal, or water could be backing up the drain line. i would guess that it is a plumbing problem because of theissue with water in the sink. have a plumber snake out the drain lines and the problem with the washer should disappear.
