Unfortunately, that usually means that the pump needs to be replaced. Open the washer again and look inside the pump area. Check if the impeller can move freely and is mounted on its shaft. If there is anything blocking the impeller, then remove the object and try again. Also check if the pressure switch tubing is clear. Remove the top of the washer and look near the back of the unit. You should see a tube attached to the switch. Remove the tube and blow through it. Check the ball valve for the drain for any foreign objects; this is just after the pump and before the drain hose. If there was anything blocking these parts, test the washer cycle again. Check the wiring for the pressure switch and the CCU.
If there were no blockages and the drain pump impeller moved freely, replace the drain pump.
It sounds like the seal has a death grip on the motor shaft. Pick up the seal plate so the motor is hanging beneath it. (watch your toes) Holding it about waist high let it drop and then snatch it back up again. Kinda like getting a pillow in its case. The motor should drop out.
Check the shaft of the impeller, the plastic shaft might be broken, it was the problem with mine. To get to the impeller you have to remove the filter at the base of the diswasher and after you will see the screw that hold the impeller assembly in place, unscrew it and you will see right away if it is broken, Good luck
Turn the circuit breaker off to the pump. Undo the band that holds the motor and flex plate to the pump. Unscrew the 5 screws on the diffuser ( front of pump ) That will expose the impeller. Remove the rear cover of the motor, (2 -1/4" screw heads) Pull off the rear cover. The impeller might have a screw in the center of it. If it does, the screw is left handed thread. Turn the screw clockwise to remove. Use a 7/16" open end wrench to hold the shaft at the rear of the motor. Put the wrench behind the plate with the two springs on the shaft. You might have to turn the shaft a little to get the wrench on. Remove to screw and remove the impeller, (counter clockwise). Unscrew the 4 motor flange bolts and pull the flex plate from the motor.
Have the drain pump connected off line and tested, if there is the nosie then open and clean well try to back flush by using a water from the reverse direction.
If the noise has susbsided then reconnect to cirruit and test with load.
If there is play in the impeller it can makea noise , you remove and grease the shaft to set it in, if noise is absent then might need to put in worn bearings.
remove the 2 spring clips that hold the pump on the motor shaft and remove the pump,there has to be a blockage in the 2 impellers inside the unit if all else is clear,socks get pulled into there a lot of times
The coin will not drain out nor be fed back into the tub by the recirculation pump but it will block the filter or eventually block the impeller of the drain pump and break it. You'll then experience a draining problem and need to replace the drain pump.
What you have to do is remove the basket to get the coin out then take the opportunity to clean the filter vanes. The coin is most probably still in the filter.
Tape the lid to the top of the washer then disconnect power to the washer.
The top of the washer is held to the front of the cabinet by two locks located about six-and-a-half inches away from the outer edges of the washer. Use a putty knife blade or similar tool to press and unlock the top locks.
Insert the blade of a putty knife into the seam between the top of the washer and the cabinet at the given distance from the outer edges of the washer. Press the locks then lift the top of the washer.
Remove the impeller (wash plate) cap by inserting the blade of a flat-bladed screwdriver or similar tool into the slot in the impeller cap, and then pry the cap off.
Remove the 7/16" hex-head bolt from the impeller (wash plate), then lift and remove the impeller from the basket.
Pull the recirculation hose off the tub ring by compressing the spring clamp holding it in place. Remove the tub ring by prying and unsnapping its tabs from the tub.
Lift the basket out of the washer to access and clean the filter. Remove the two screws holding the filter to the tub. Take the filter off and clean it.
Reinstall the filter, the basket, and the wash plate. Secure the wash plate with the 7/16" hex-head bolt then snap the impeller cap in.
Put the tub ring in place aligning the tabs then snap the tabs back into position. Reinsert the recirculation hose into the tub ring and secure it with the spring clamp. Push and lock down the top of the washer to the cabinet.
In case the coin is no longer in the tub or in the filter, turn off the water supply to the washer. Disconnect the fill hoses from the rear the washer and remove the end of the drain hose from the laundry tub or stand pipe.
Place padding or cushion on the floor fronting the washer, and then carefully lay the washer on its front panel to access the drain pump at the bottom of the washer.
With the washer facing down and you facing its bottom, the drain pump is on the left while on the right is the recirculation pump. You can actually see the drain hose connected to the drain pump.
Using a pair of pliers, compress the spring clamps holding the drain pump inlet and outlet hoses. Move the clamps away from the pump then remove the hoses.
Remove the three 5/16" hex-head drain pump mounting screws. Open the wire cover on the pump then disconnect the wires from the terminals of the pump, and then remove the pump from the washer.
Check the pump impeller for any debris and clean it. Reinstall the pump after cleaning and secure it with the three 5/16" mounting screws. Reinsert the inlet and outlet hoses then secure it with the spring clamps. Make sure the tab on the outlet hose connector fits into the slot in the outlet hose.
Reconnect the wires to the pump terminals then close the wire cover.
remove the kick panel below the door, place a pan, etc under where the drain hose connects to the drain extension tube, and slide the clamp back some so you can slide the hose off of the extension tube (white plastic tube) and drain any excess fluid into the aforementioned pan, etc., then unscrew the extension tube and check for plugs, or restrictions. the sump may also be pluged beneath the strainer assembly, and that requires removing the lower spray arm, the water tube that runs up the inside back of the unit, and the upper parts of the assembly below them to access the drain/pump sump area. last but not least the impeller is jamed and might be able to be freed by removing whatever has lodged within there.. ya never know... best of luck, ttfn
