Could be bad main wash pump motor, bad capacitor on said motor, or broken or jamed pump impeller. You will need to remove the lower spray arm and filter assembly to get access to the pump impeller to see if it is jammed or broken. If you can turn the motor shaft but the motor just hums then the motor of motor start capacitor is gone. You can order the motor with start capacitor and impeller for around $130. Check for 120v at the motor terminals prior to replacing motor/pump assembly to confirm, 120v at motor would but motor not turning equals bad motor and or capacitor.

While i'm washing water is getting on my floor, I don't know if it is when spinning or washing what could be the problem?


Help me help you...Dry the floor...Set the load size to small. Let it fill and start the wash cycle. Stop the unit. Look underneath it. Is there water on the floor? If so let me know. If not, start it up again and let it complete the wash cycle. As it begins to drain, look for water on the floor. Let me know.
I am trying to help you eliminate (or isolate) a bad tub seal, centrifigual force out, or a drain pump issue. When the water actually begins to leak is the key element we need to know in order to solve your problem. :) 2CR

Washer will not discharge water after wash or rinse cycle


Pump failure. Unit probably has something stuck in pump....the washer eats the socks not the dryer. suggest shope vac to get water out, and then remove hose from pump and check to see if its clear.

Does not pump water during the wash cycle.


It sounds like you are on the right track.

Open the dishwasher, remove the bottom rack, then remove the thumb nut in the middle of the unit that secures the lower wash arm and housing. Look for debris and clear any you find. Try again. If no joy, you will have to repeat the first step and also remove the wash pump upper housing that is secured with torx head screws. Same thing after you remove it - look for debris in the impeller area and remove it.

If you have to remove the wash impeller, you will need a 1" offset box wrench and as I recall a 1/4" socket. The 1" offset box wrench is needed to keep the impeller from turning while you remove the center nut. You will also need to remove the upper discharge line retainer clip to get that out of your way. Inspect the impeller for any debris and especially cracks or missing blades. If the impeller is damaged it will need to be replaced.

While you have this thing apart, check the lower wash arm and upper wash arm discharge pipe assembling for any obstructions.

I am assuming the motor runs ok and the timing cycles seem normal.

UNIT FILLS AND PUMPS OUT CONTINUALLY BUT WILL NOT WASH OR CYCLE


you may have a defective pressure switch, this is located on the back of the well, access from the rear of the unit. It black with an orange sticker, from the rear it is slightly to the right of the well, but not as far round as the drain pump.
