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

Wont spin


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

There are several reasons why a washing machine won't drain or spin. The cause could be something as easy as a clog or something difficult that will need a licensed repairman. Start with the simplest possible cause and work down to the more difficult causes.

Find some possible cause and how to solve the problem:

A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.

If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.

Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.

Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.

If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman. Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall.

Regards.

Yes you need a new control board. The fact that the motor and impeller was damaged and loosened. You should try taking your Washer in for maintenance check or call the repair man.

I just moved and my washer through the error code "sud" when it started to spin it wont drain either.


You have either overloaded the machine, or you have used too much soap. unplug washer for about 10 minutes. set to rinse and spin, should work fine. If you cant get it to work tried putting some veggetable oil to kill the suds.
