Matag top load washer model # LAT9604AAE filled but no agitation

Washer was working fine for several loads last night. I filled it this morning for a large load. Washer filled OK, but then did not "click on" for the agitation cycle. Red power light is on and I tried all cycles available (no luck), and tried unplugging/re-plugging power cord (no luck). Right now I just want to figure out how to get the water to drain out in case a repair is needed. Thanks.

If just getting the water out is your main goal, this can be accomplished using a shop vacuum.
Be sure to unplug the power cord before attempting any repair! Another way to drain a machine is to use a bucket. Put the discharge end of the drain hose from the washer into the bucket, making sure the hose end is higher than the level of the water in the washer, and slowly lower the hose and bucket until the water flows into the bucket. Raise the bucket and hose end back up above the level in the machine tub to stop the flow. Repeat until the machine is empty.
Give the machine a try after removing some of the water as you may have tripped a limit switch and the unit may just be overfilled

    Do Not Disconnect The Discharge Hose End That Attaches To The Machine!
    This would result in an uncontrollable flood!

Hello dagreen,
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said,
Last night you filled the washer with a comforter and pillow cases! It was working fine and then you lifted the lid. Now it wont start back. Any ideas. It is full of water and had already started agitating.

Check the breaker
Could the power be out due to an electrical storm while you were sleeping.
If not!

Try pulling the plug out for 5 minutes or turning the breaker off if you can't reach the plug.
Then try to start. this should have reset the system.


Some Questions to check
• Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 96 in. (244 cm) above the floor? See the
Installation Instructions for proper installation of drain hose.
• Is the lid open? The lid must be closed during operation.
Washer will not agitate or spin with the lid open.
• Is there excessive sudsing? Always measure detergent.
Follow manufactures directions. If you have very soft water,
you might need to use less detergent.

let me know how you do and that it works.
Huuum
please remember to leave a rating when your finished.

Washer will not agitate


A wears out clutch might prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. Good luck!
