Question about Washing Machines
The washer has stopped running in mid wash cycle. I have removed some clothes and now the agitator moves very slowly when the dryer is running. It was the normal size load. The washer is 18 years old with no service problems before today. It's a Whirlpool Thin Twin LT7000T.
Remove the pump system like this off the Hotpoint wd640 . Remove any blockage inside and retry.

1) Verify a circuit breaker
2) Advance the timer
control dial slowly 360 degrees-
If the washer starts
spinning, then we know the motor and drive belt are
fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or
the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this.
If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is
attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken,
replace it. If it is loose, then tighten it by loosening up the bolt holding
the motor and moving it on its swingarm (much like a car alternator) until
there is a 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection in the belt.
Some washers use reversing motors. It's possible the motor works on the spin cycle but not on the wash cycle. If so, call a pro.
3) Visually inspect the lid
safety switch- Is it loose or cracked?
If so, the washer might work intermittently, stopping at different cycles.
4) Check motor and drive belt- Remove the main access panel (usually in the back). Is the motor spinning, but the drive belt isn't? If so, then you have a drive belt problem.
