Question about Washing Machines
Our machine stopped and I found some bobby pins in the pump, after cleaning it out, it nows spins for a few seconds and then stops. I did drain all the water, and sprayed WD40 on the shock absorbers (access under the machine) and the springs seems attached in the right place. The machine works well through a normal cycle - without clothes - however it vibrates itself all around the room before switching itself off and then unusable when loaded with normal amount of washing in the drum.
There are 2 large springs supporting the top of the drum, I would say there is a good chance 1 of those has pulled loose, or perhaps cracked or broken the securing hole.

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.

Chck to see that all (6) suspension springs are still attached. Check the plastic snubber ring below the mechanism and above the base plate for cracks or contamination.
