SOURCE: My Cabrio washer stops at

Some error code there? This may sound strange but give it a try. Unplug the electric. Leave unplugged 2 or 3 minutes, then plug it back in. This allows the controls to reset. It worked alot cases.

Inicially I could think in some drain problem, check hose for any clogged or obstruction there, try to jump voltage to the pumo to confirm if this device is working. If this dont solve it, you will need to check timer; in this link could finr some tip test: applianceaid.com/direct.html#burnt_timer

Visit this site to identify some parts replacement that you could need: partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5152465&diagram

If you are not sure about how do it this job, or your machine is even under warranty, call the technician service.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: whirlpool gold top load washer (7 months old) won't agitate or spin

It sounds like the motor drive coupler has broken. This means the motor is no longer turning the gearcase, but it is turning the pump. It will be repaired under warranty if it is only 7 months old. You should have a full one year warranty on the washer. If not, he can probably fix it, but it will need a new coupler. He can tilt the machine back and see the coupler between the motor and transmission from underneath. I can walk you through replacing it if you want, but I wouldn't recommend it if it is still under warranty. There could possibly be something more major wrong that has caused it to break and some of the factory servicers are real picky about customers working on a machine under warranty. If you need it running tonight, he may be in trouble.

Post back if you need further help or have more questions.

Thanks/mike

Front load washer, try to spin, but stops altogether and want wash it fills up but want wash


Make sure that you don't over load the washer. As it starts to spin back and forth it is sensing the load balance as the clothes fall back and forth. If it doesn't sense a balanced load because the clothes can't fall back and forth it will not start the wash process. Refuse your load and try again.

    be sure water is draining out before spin starts if necessary remove bottom panel and clean pump out and ck hoses to pump be sure there are no excess suds ..wash only full loads small loads or loads with 1 heavy item will cause washer to sense off balance and try to balance load this will extend cycle time

    The washer has the sound both times but not all the time. I THINK we found all the pieces but now that you mentioned it, perhaps not. Are you thinking there may be a piece lodged somewhere and making that noise?

    Spin/Drain cycle...Kenmore 417.40042990 Front load belt drive washer.


    If the water is draining quickly (less than 30 secs) every time, than it sounds like its sensing an out of balance load, the CCU looks for this.... Before every spin cycle it goes through an out of balance routine it will do this even when empty.....It speeds up, slows down and will tumble again at least once....then speeds up ....looks at motor amps......decelerates.....looks at rate of deceleration.......Then decides if its ok to spin at the high speed...or if it should tumble again to distribute the clothes....If it cant balance itself to what it like than it will spin at a lower speed like yours is doing if its bad enough than it wont spin at all really (very slow). Im sure you checked the shocks while you were looking at the pump, but double check that there not broken at the mounts, or lots of grease at the base mount. If thats all good than you should try this......Sort a large size load of just regular tshirts and casual wear (no towels, jeans). Let me know how it spins then. Also make sure that its draining quickly every time. Sometimes the drain pump can appear fine and not be starting every time.
