It appears your timer/main controller or pressure switch has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.


Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Sounds like a bad water pump, and or bad agitator motor if the washer will not spin. Breaker probably tripped due to one of the 2 drawing too much current.

It will wash but when its time for the first draining out the water to spin it stops


Three things to inspect are:
  1. Clogged drain hose - cause water to back up to the pump and shut down
  2. Clogged drain tube - usually occurs when the drain hose is attached to a drain tube that empties out into the homes sewer system. Just like a clogged drain, water will back up all the way through the drain hose into the pump and shut down.
  3. Clogged or bad drain pump - Many times, debris left in pockets will work it's way into the drain pump. Over time, enough debris (paper, coins etc) could lodge itself into the pump. When the machine tries to empty or spin out, the pump becomes overwhelmed and shuts down. Sometimes, you may even see a puddle of water appear under the washer due to a clogged pump. This can also happen if the pump itself is worn out and no longer working up to specifications.
Best of luck with your repair.

My Fisher and Paykel Intuitive eco washer came up with a code:37 we have taken the pump off and the drain hose and blown through it and there is no blockage. When put onto deep rinse as recommended, it...


Fault Code 37 is "Pump Blocked Error" which means for some reason the machine did not drain properly. This can be due to a blockage in the pump such as a lint ball or wire from a bra that got down in the pump, perhaps a safety pin, etc. It also can be caused by objects that get past the pump but become caught inside the diverter valve, which is downstream from the pump. One other thing to be aware of, and this trips people up sometimes- a pump that is failing ELECTRICALLY can also cause the same error. If the pump is overheating and shutting down, the machine will not drain and the control will properly sense that there is still water in the tub. I've suggested in the past that this error be renamed "pump error" because the term "blocked" makes people look for an absolute condition. Since you have cleaned the pump, check the diverter valve for any obstructions.

LG Washer leaking water underneath


Some times a water valve can have a leak inside the machine coming out the bottom.

Also make sure the filter in the front lower left corner is tight in the housing.

Tub inside could be damaged from shipping.

Sears should be able to fix you up.

My kenmore 1110.20702.990 washing machine fills up, washes, and does no more as to draining the water.....timer problem and can I get a repari part?????


If it is the timer you could manually turn it to go through the cycles. Most likely it is the pump. If the pump won't drain it won't spin hence it will stop right after the wash cycle. Pumps are fairly easy. Unplug the wasker. Remove as much of the water as you can. Pull out the unit and shut off your water supply hoses. Take off the back. The pump will be clamped to the largest hoses. Put towels on the floor once you take off the clamps all of the water will drain out. Replace the pump. Call Sears to get the new pump. Hope this helps-good luck.

Water won't spin out


Only two possibilities; if belt driven, the pump belt has snapped, if shaft driven, the pump has failed. Opening the back of the washer shouldn't be difficult, 8-10 screws, probably hex-head. Checking the interior, you may find pieces of a black drive belt. If you don't, then the pump itself is probably bad; the drive shaft may have separated from the impeller. 

Check Sears website for the belt part number; they have 100s of thousands of illustrated parts diagrams with part numbers given and the chance to buy directly on line. You might also note the pump part number once you are on the right page.
If the pump has failed, check if you have a Johnstone Supply in your area; their parts prices are aimed at wholesalers but they will not turn you down and won't have a problem cross-referencing Sears/Kenmore part numbers.

Sears 110.23812100 washer leaks when spinning


There is a pause after the pump out that shift the tranmission into spin also if you open the lid the unit will go into spin before it pumps out completely . They have since fixed this issue...The newer models work offf the pressure switch to tell the unit when to go into spin only after the water level switch is open telling the machine there is no water left in the unit

Washing machine it shuts down water filling cycle


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Washer will not complete cycle


Sounds like your pump is once again not working. Best thing to do is get a wet vac and get the water out so you can clear the pump. I would also check the rubber gasket around the bottom of the tub and make sure its not worn and makes a good seal all around. If it is not sealing the tub any small item has a good chance of going down and into the pump. Good Luck
