Water in Drum...No Longer Working

A pipe burst in my basement and filled the drum with about 4 inches of water.  The machine makes a noise when I attempt to start it, but it won't turn on.  How expensive is this going to be?  Is there anything short of a new dryer or big bucks to fix it that I can do?

I suspect that the motor has seized with the ingress of water, and will probably require new one fitting
Likely to be expensive. You should not really be trying to use it if it has had water in it until you have it checked for electrical safety.
Does not your household insurance cover you for burst water pipes and the resulting damage caused by this event?
Plz rate my solution.

Wasing machine fills with water during washing and wont pump out filling the drum...

1. Empty the drum via the filter / trap at the front (there is sometimes a drain pipe near the filter - otherwise be prepared to use lots of towels to soak up the water).
2. Check / clean the filter.
3. Ensure that the drainage pipe is not blocked.
4. Check that the pipe from the pump to the waste water pipe is not kinked / blocked.
5. Check that the pipe from the drum to the pump is not blocked.
6. Does the pump sound like it's trying to work? If not, it could be that the pump is dead. Pumps can often become blocked with fluff / slime from the machine.

Good luck!

Water will not shut off

Usually there is a thin pipe from the bottom of the drum to a pressure switch at the top of the machine. As the machine fills the water goes up the pipe from the drum and increases the air pressure in the pipe to a point where it's enough to switch the switch inside. If the pipe gets blocked with washing powder it will not switch off and the machine will keep filling. The pipe is connected to a sort of flat round box with a few wires on it. If you can take the top or back off the machine you should see it and be able to clean the pipe out yourself.
