Wahing Machine wont drain--Centrex CTW 60518

Its a top loading Wshing mAchine, That i inherited with my new house, being a student id like to fix it myself, or find the cheapest way to.

It is full of smelly water, that wont drain. I tried putting it through different cycles, but to no avail. Also figured out that it makes a funny noise during the rinse cycle but doesnt move, and when it gets to the spin cycle, it beeps and some lights flash. And it stops.
Any ideas as to what it could be..and how i could fix it?

It appears your pump/coupling has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or 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

My washing machine will not spin or drain,only fill up with water

Couple things could be happening;

Scenario 1: Your motor is dead, or the electrical connections leading to it are chewed up and no longer send electricity to the motor. If you have a voltage tester, you should see if you are getting power to it.

Scenario 2: The safety switch that stops the motor from spinning when the lid is open is compromised.. This is possible, but less likely, as the motor would still spin in agitate mode..

Good luck!

Hi! my GE wshing machine keeps filling with water but the wash cycle wont work. the tub isn't roating. it will advance to drain and spin if i manually do it.

sounds like the pressure switch line is plugged. remove the front panel by inserting a putty knife between the front panel and the main top an inch or so from either side to release the locking tabs. the clear tube to the left side needs to be removed and cleaned thoroughly, while the tube is removed begin filling the unit with hot water untill water comes out of the spout the tube came off of. reinstall the tube and test to make sure the water level shuts off at all levels. the largest level should stop right around the top level of tub holes.

Wahing machine wont spin out with full load .will with small load

I would check to see if you have a kink in your drain hose. The timer allows the same amount of time to drain if it is a full load or a 1/2 load. If the drain hose is kinked it restricts the volume of water being drained leaving water in the tub when doing a full load.
