Question about Washing Machines
Hope you can help, my washer seems to go fine until the rinse cycle and beyond. It makes horrible sound (loud humming) and the inner tub does not move. The tube in the middle of the tub spins, (the plastic thing with the fabric softener hole) but the tub cannot even be moved by hand.
Any thoughts? The washer was purchased in 2000..
Stara, sounds like you have a couple of issues going on here. On the model you posted there was a service flash on the dispensor. They redesigned it to provide an additional air gap for release. There was also a flash on the bleach hose splitting and leaking. The service flash numbers are 26-747 for the despensor and 26-746 for the hose leak. It almost sounds like your transmission is not going into it's nuetral drain. After completeing the agitation, it should drain for about 90 seconds before spinning. This would be a gearcase problem. The gearcase is covered for a period of 5 years, part only. You might want to check where you bought this unit and see if the parts are covered under warranty. Including the dispensor and hose. You would have to pay the labor..Hope this info helps

It doesn't look like a motor problem !!! It seems like an unbalanced tub issue. The machin has suspension dampers and suspension rods, and it's look like one of them was damaged or "run away" from its location during machin's movement. Goog luck !!

Need a litle more inflormation from you if you could. What is the make and model number of the unit? Does water flow through the dispensers for rinsing action? If it is a front loader or higher dollar machine, the dispensers are sometimes controlled by the timer or control boards. They control water valves that control the rinsing water entering the chambers. This raises the level, and causes a siphon or flushing action at certian points of the wash cycles. There could be a nuber of issues, a bad timer or control board, bad water solinoid(s), wiring issues, or clogged hoses or ports. If this is a new washer, do you still have a service policy or warranty left with it? Let me know what kind the unit is and a model number and will try to help you out a little more. Thanks Jim

SOURCE: Problems with fabric softener
you either have low cold water pressure being caused by the screens on both ends of the cold waterline being clogged by sediment or one of the solinoids for the water inlet is bad. try removing cold water hose and cleaning both screens if that doesnt help youll need a solinoid

your soap drawer is most likely to be blocked , the only true way of clearing the blockage is to take the soap dispenser completely out . you will see that all the jets will be blocked ,you can do this before taking it all apart by taking the drawer out band looking up, if it looks clean ie; no black gunge then it may be a water valve problem, as the cold fill side has 2 internal valves both have come on together to clear the conditioner compartment.
