I would say it would defantly be worth looking at if it just something stuk in the pump or motor and no parts are needed it would be worth the repair if it needs a part the repair man should let you know how much the part is and you can compair that to the price of a new machine they start around 300 -350 a service call have the machine checked could run between 50 - 100 don't know what people charch where you are

Kitchenaid KAWS700G will fill and wash but won't drain and spin


My washer also did not drain. I disconnected the power supply and water hoses and the drain hose and lay the machine on its side.. The motor is at the bottom. Once I disconnected the hose and put my finger to look inside. There is a rubber stopper and once I moved that aside and looked inside I found my baby sock stuck in the the pump. Once I gently pulled the sock out It came out easily. Lucky me the motor is in working condition.
My washing machine was manufactured I believe in 1997.

This is the first time ever took look under any washing machine.
Best of luck!

Hello, Thats sounds like a broken motor coulpler,when its broke it will sound as if its agaitating/spinning yet it doesn't. The coupler is fairly easy to replace and this video will show you to replace it. The part number fot the coupler is 285753A it could be picked up from your local appliance parts store for no more that $20.00 or you could order it online from; assuredparts.com apdepot.com appliancepartspros.com searspartsdirect.com repairclinic.com Gene

I have a necklace chain stuck between the washplate and the basket, how do i remove the washplate?


Remove the fabric softener on top of agitator and plastic insert. Use socket wrench to remove hex bolt and lift top half and then bottom half of agitator which should then expose chain.

Everything works-no spin-motor sounds like it won't engage


this is a whirpool style direct drive. most likely coupler is broken. it's a small part, between motor and gearcase about as big around as a silver dollar but thicker. lean the washer back so you can look under it and look right behind the motor. not a major repair. worth fixing. You will want to remove the cabinet so if you decide to do it mssg back for more info.

Washer won't spin!


I doubt if that would affect it unless you got the chain between the inner and outer tub. The pump might have a coin in it. Tip the washer back,remove the belt and turn the pump by hand to see if it is locked up.

Necklace stuck in washer


Hold the bottom part of the Agitator,(The part that you are talking about),Undo the very top part in an anti-clockwise direction and it will come right off.Use a wrench to remove the nut on the top of the agitator and then lift it right out,you may need to move it from right to left.You will now be able to remove the necklace.Replace the Agitator the reverse of removal.
