Washing machine fills and agitates but won't spin or drain, just hums.


When the machine beeps it is giving you a code with the 8 wash progress lights along the top. Some will be on some will be off. With OFF = Zero and On = 1 Can you give me the 8 digit code. An example is (01001001) It is normal for the pump motor to get very very warm. Make sure you can spin the pump impeller easily.

My whirlpool thin twin filled with water and stopped!:(


Well if it fills then it needs the lid shut to work. So if the lid is shut it hits a lidswitch and if that lid switch is broken then nothing will work washer wise right? As far as the dryer that may be a blown fuse but nothing on the washer could stop it from running cept maybe a bad cord or breaker.

LTE6234 Whirlpool Twin Thin Timer Broken?


Check for voltage at the water inlet valve with the timer dial pushed in or in an off position. If no voltage replace the water valve. If you do have voltage you'll have to trace the circuits back from the water valve to the line. One point of demarcation is the water level switch. Pull the violet colored wire and see if it still fills while off. If it does it's likely the timer's bad.

Why wont my washer dryer empty the water...???


If the machine fills and agitates but does not drain, something is probably wrong with the drain hose or the pump. The fact that the washer fills and agitates tells you that the motor works and the belt is okay (though some units have a separate belt for the pump and direct-drive washing machines don't have belts). 1) Be sure the drain hose isn't kinked. 2) Check the tab on the lid that strikes the lid switch; if it is broken, the washer may stop during the drain cycle. Press and release the lid switch: if it doesn't click each time you do this, it's probably broken. If you're experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repair service person. 3) The water pump may be broken or clogged with a small article of clothing or the controls may be broken; call an appliance repairperson. courtesy "nagev"

Washing machine doesn't agitate


If washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. Note: direct-drive washing machines do not have belts. 1) Check the spin cycle. If this works, the motor is operating and the belt is not broken. If it doesn't, the belt may be loose or broken. If you're fairly handy, tighten or replace the belt, otherwise call an appliance repairperson. 2) Check the lid switch and the tab on the lid that strikes it. If the plastic tab is broken, the washer may halt during certain cycles. Press and release the switch: if it doesn't click each time you do this, it's probably broken. If you're experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repair service person. 3) Call a repairperson; there may be a problem with the controls or the agitator solenoid may be broken.
