Remove lower rear panel of m/c, remove the 2 hoses on the pump, disconnect the electric feed to the pump, and depending on how the pump is secured to the base, remove pump.
Connect a 240V supply directly to the pump, it does not matter which way you connect live and neutral as they are both common.to the pump.
Switch on and the pump should run, if you want to test it with water in, remember it is gravity fed, and you are dealing with 240 Volts .BE CAREFUL.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

The OE code keeps coming up and the machine wont drain I checked and cleared all of the drainage tubes and it still is doing the same thing


If what you have done did not solve your problem, you will have to replace the drain pump motor. It can be done without taking the front off the washer with a little work. Unplug power from machine. Drain water from filter area. Remove screw from filter recess area, then use a putty knife on the side of the recess to pop the rectangular recess out. Remove two phillips head screws passing through metal to pump housing. Pull washer forward about 2 feet and lean it back against the back wall. reach under washer and depress tab holding pump assembly to washer base. It's easiest to remove hoses and disconnect electric plug to pump and completly remove pump assembly to replace pump motor, which is held onto housing by 3 phillips head screws. Reassemble and test.

The machine isn't draining properly on the Normal cycle


those washers are common to get objects in the pumps : coins, trash and other objects etc.:pull the machine away from the wall then lean it back so you can access the pump through a hole in the bottom of the washer : a fillips head screw clamp holds the hose on to the bottom of the outer tube loosen the clamp pull the hose down slightly and reach in and pull out the plastic strainer empty it and then replace it and then return the hose and tighten the clamp then test for leaks

My washer will not pump out water or spin . it will fill, and aggitate. drain hose is not kinked


If your washer does not drain you need to check this parts.
  1. Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  2. Test the timer control
  3. Test the lid switch(some models)
  4. Inspect the water pump
  5. Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
  6. Inspect the motor coupler
If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Wont spin


Hi,

Do you See any Error Code? If yes, let me know. Unless i could provide you with a Generic Guide that would help you :-



It doesn't spin or pump

If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns

If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.

If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Washer not agitating,it doesdrain but does not agitate


Hello

You need to check and test the lid switch, The lid switch ensures that the lid is closed before enabling the machine to spin or agitate. This feature was added after serious injuries resulted from people reaching into an operating washing machine. For this reason, the lid switch should never be bypassed.
Test the switch for continuity using a multitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester should display a reading of infinity. Depress the button on the lid switch and the reading should change from a reading of infinity to roughly zero. If it does not pass both of these tests, the switch should be replaced.

Inspect the motor coupler,
Inspect the driver belt (belt drive only)
Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
Test the motor
Inspect the pulley
Test the transmission
Inspect the agitator
Inspect the pump coupling
Test the water level switch

As a serviceman for 18 years I have seen this numerous times.
The fault sounds like the motor control module.. Assuming your test on the pump windings was ok..?

Unplug the washer from AC
Open the bottom access panel (3 screws on bottom lip)

open the large filter in center,
be ready for a lot of water, mops and rags ready. water vac is really handy .
Clean all the debris you find in the filter, reach in an spin the little propeller and make sure it spins freely.
pour in a cup of water inside the tub does it drain down freely.
reassemble and test.
front access panel has a switch so it has to be closed back.
