Pump is not starting to pump water out of whirlpool ultimate 2
Washer not draining water. Will wash, but pump will not empty water. The washer has set for 8 months without being used, as it is in a winter home. The first load I washed, it just stopped after the wash cycle. Also the lid switch is bad, and needs to be replace. Please advise

1. Clogged drain line or water pump Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).
2. Water Pump If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.
**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line
NOTE-If the hoses and pump check out ok, this will confirm that there is a serious within the actual control sector(Timer module or control board). It should be replaced in this case.
Hi, could be faulty timer, faulty water level switch, faulty start capacitor for motor, or faulty motor. always put clothes in machine before starting. you can empty machine by lowering drain hose to flow level.
If possible, can you cycle a very small load of wash ( perhaps a towel or two) on the lowest setting to validate that : the washer is spiining up to normal speeds while draining water and that the water being drained is complete? Chancves are you have a either a blocked filter that limits water from completely draining, something in the drain pump or a restriction in your drain system. You could also have a worn belt that drives the pump. The test I suggested will at least determine if your washer is capable of draining all of the water from even a small wash load. Try that and let me know the results.
If it is not the drain pump, at least this gives you the necessary instruction on how to access the cabinet interior to inspect it properly. A whining noise could be something caught in the pump, or something stuck between the wash tub and outer basket. In order to run the washer with the case removed, you will need to by-pass the lid switch. this accomplished by jumpering the two BLACK wires on the lid switch connector at the timer. CAUTION: Unplug the washer before connecting the jumper wires. Then, plug back in and start the washer. Fill on the lowest setting and look for leaks.
NOTE: The drain pump is not serviceable and must be replaced if leaking.
I hope this helps you. Let me know if you have further questions.
