Re: Washer leaks and tub won't empty in the beginning of...
Check your hoses all the connections. you'll have to pull the part with the knobs off to do this inside. If it isn't turning, but the motor runs, it might be the coupler in the bottom of the washer connecting the motor and transmission.

With the lid open, try to turn tub by hand. If you can you may have a bad clutch. If you hear the washer agitating at the begining of the cycle without any water and filling at the end of the cycle, replace the ATC switch. Try spin cycle and open the lid, if you don't see the tub turning, but hear the motor, check motor coupler, or if it never spins after you close lid, check lid switch. These are the most common solutions to this complaint.
Hi, When the washer is in spin or wash cyles, do you here any motor noises? It sounds like the lid switch might be bad. Sometimes you can actually see if the lid switch is broke or not. Please let me know if The lid switch appears to be the problem or if I can assist you further.
Does the washer leak water into the tub even when it is not on. If so, your fill valve is leaking or sticking.
I would also check the following components for problems: -Air pressure switch. This is usually located inside the control area and likely is attached to the water level control. Try attaching a small piece of tubing to the pressure switch and gently blow into it. If it turns off, the problem likely lies elsewhere.
-Air tube. This clear tube can get crimped or worn from the vibration of the washer's normal operation. Any holes, cracks or crimps will prevent the air pressure created by the water in the tub from getting to the pressure switch.
-Soap residue in the air dome. The airdome is the piece attached to the side of the washtub that allows water in the tub to exert air pressure into the tube and the pressure switch. Soap residue can create an obstruction that prevents the pressure from being transmitted up the tube. Try cleaning with vinegar or ammonia. (Remember: Clean the tub and tubing thoroughly with water after cleaning. Ammonia and Vinegar are both corrosive to electrical parts.)
Check your pump and drain for a blockage. You also could have a timer connection issue. Remove the timer wire connectors and reattach them.The timer simply has a quick connection block, sometimes they get a little loose and all you gotta do is push it all the way back in. Check for a loose lid hinge and safety switch also.
