I am having the same problem. I just figured out it has to do with the latch switch that "locks" the lid in both the drain and spin cycles. Place a pen/pencil into the hole on the top of the frame where the lid would fall and see if it triggers your drain cycle to start. I was able to remove all of the water by holding the trigger down, but I haven't yet figured out how to remove the top of the washing machine in order to fix the part.

Washer leaks every time it drains, it agitates with no problem

Most likely the pump is leaking but you can't pinpoint the source without removing the cabinet. Pumps are a common failure item especially after you have some appliance years on the machine

After doing a load of items used on the beach there was sand in the washer. We did a second load from house hold items...Still sand in the washer. After runnibg an empty load the sand dissapeared. Is...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

There is always a chance, albeit I would suggest, a slim one that fine sand could do a little damage to the impeller blades of the drain pump. You should be able to see the blades if you remove the drain filter and look inside the drain pipe. It does sound though as if you have got rid of any sand which was left anyway ;-0)
Good luck,

Maytag mavz757aww will fill but not spin

take a wet dry shop vac and attach it tothe end off the drain hose and remove all the water.once the water is removed move the washer away from the wall. tilt it back and look under the front you should see the drain pump and motor remove the two black hoses and look for anything stuck in the drain pump.
then look for a black rubber piece with two white plastic pieces on both side if this is broken then replace it this is your transmsiion coupler.
if there is nothing wrong with either one of these items then you may need to rpelace the lid switch.

Washer won't drain or spin, get F2 error

Hello hernandez160,

The "F2" error is referring to excessive drain time. Unplug machine before working on it. Remove screws on bottom of lower panel and remove panel. The drain pump is behind the panel, It has a large round door on it, turn counter clock wise by hand to access pump clean out. Have lots of towels ready. Remove anything from pump (usually kids socks or small clothing articles). If nothing in pump clean out remove suction boot from drain pump and check there. If nothing there blow through the drain hose from the pump side to check if anything is stuck in the hose. If that's clear check the electrical connection on the pump, make sure nothing is loose or broken at the connection. If all this checks out good and it still wont work you probably have a bad pump and it will need to be replaced. If you do find something was blocked or clogged due to small clothing articles I would recommend a garment/lingerie bag to keep all the small stuff together during the wash cycle. Hope this helps to fix your problem. Please remember to rate this and every solution you get.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Washer won't drain or spin at 6mintues put if i go to drain only and spin only it works

What type and brand of machine? top loading/ front loading? Do you typically load it heavily? or more average sized loads?
Sounds like you may have sucked a sock or other small clothing item into the pump.
If you can remove the front cover of the machine, you can access the innards and expose the pump. Some units have clear plastic pumps and you can see if there's something in it..
If nothing's in the pump, it could be something is between the inner perforated drum and the outer drum... this would allow things to spin and not drain when the culprit sock or whatever covers the drain hole (located at the top of the hose that connects to the pump.
Removal is tricky not to make a huge mess.. if it's in the pump, you can clamp the hose shut and keep the water in the drum while you remove the obstruction. still will backwash out of the pump..
If it's in the drum, If you can remove the top of the machine, and if there's a top on the drum, you'll need to remove that as well. Then take a piece of a coat hanger with a small hook bent on the end and go fishing between the tanks... you sometimes can pull out the obstruction...
Hope this helps... let me know Good luck

Try this first.

Washer won't drain or spin
Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 96" (2.4
m) above the floor?
Is your voltage low?
Check electrical source or call electrician. Do not use an
extension cord.
Is the "SUD" routine active?
Cycle will complete once extra suds are removed.
Is the load balanced?
A single or bulky item may cause imbalance. Add more items
or redistribute the load.

Whirlpool washing machine

Welcome hendrik,
You said, jumping around during spin cycle

How old is your GHW9150 washer?

Usually it is overload or load unbalanced due to uneven load.You must stop the machine and re-distribute the load and or weight!

Here are some Whirlpool reasons for you.
But if nothing helps you may have a mechanical problem to be serviced!

Try these ideas first!

Is the load balanced?

A single or bulky item may cause imbalance. Add more items
or redistribute the load.
Washer makes noise or vibrates
Is the washer level?
The washer must be level. The four feet should be properly
installed, and the nuts should be tightened against the
washer cabinet.
As water is drained from the washer, you may hear air being
pulled through the pump. This happens during the end of
draining. It is normal.
Are you washing items with metal snaps, buckles or zippers?
You may hear metal items touching the washer drum. This is
Is washer installed on a sturdy and solid floor?
Refer to the “Installation Instructions” for flooring
requirements. Noise and vibration may be reduced by placing
a piece of ¾" (19.1 mm) plywood underneath your washer.
The plywood may extend underneath both washer and dryer
to keep them at equal heights.
Let me know If you have any questions and what happens!!!
Please remember to leave a rating!
