Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

It sounds like something is wrong with the transmission but I couldn't tell by looking underneath the machine. I was able to drain the water and the spin cycle works but it was very loud.

Hi just read your posting.Now bail some of the water out by hand with a pot or small bucket so you can lean the machine back far enough to look underneath the machine without it leaking everywhere.Now when are looking underneath the machine look to the front right and you should see a red or black fan,This is your pump.Turn the fan clockwise and anticlockwise a few times to loosen the pump if any thing is jammed.The fan should spin freely.Now put the machine back on its feet and select a spin cycle and hopefully the machine starts to drain.Please reply to tell me how you got on or if the machine is still not draining or you have the other type of pump.Good luck.

this machine will not spin until it is empty of water. it sounds like your pump is jammed. first- empty water by hand then tip machine backwards so you can look underneath. only tip it back enough to look underneath. on the front right of the machine you will see a black or red fan, that is the pump. turn the fan clockwise then anti clockwise and hopefully that will loosen up what is jamming the pump. put the machine back on its feet and turn it on. advance cycle to spin then push start. it should start draining the rest of the water out and start spinning. please reply 4 more help

Water does not drain from machine at end of cycle

it sounds like the out flow is blocked some where on the front of your machine normally down the bottom there is a door open it behind should be a tap/plug type of thing turn it but put something underneath to catch the water this takes time when done take the plug out all the way have a look at the fan behind it will probably be blocked

Whirlpool washer not draining

most top loaders use belt drives, it sounds as one of the belts has snaped. can you see a belt laying around a pully or on the floor of the washer that has come away , or a pully with out anything to turn it.

Kenmore 80 series won't spin

If it is draining then the motor is turning the pump so it is ok.
This washer has no belt so that is not the problem.
Remove the cabinet and bypass the lid switch wires and put into a spin. Watch the clutch to see if it is turning. If the clutch housing is not turning and you know for sure the coupler is not broken then you need a new transmission. If the clutch housing is turning but the basket is not spinning you have something binding the basket or you need a new basket drive and clutch.
If you have only looked at the coupler from underneath you may not be able to tell if it is broken in the center. If it is broken again your transmission is not staying in neutral drain until the water is drained. That means it is going into spin with full load of clothes and water. This puts a lot of pressure on the coupler and causes them to fail prematurely. If this is the case you will need a new transmission.
Post back if you have any questions.

Loud noise and smell

It would help to know the brand and model number of the washer. If it has a belt that also runs the pump, something may have gotten into the pump during drain and locked the pump causing the belt to slip.
