Question about Washing Machines
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 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.
