HI, this is a simple fix here, you will need to replace the timer/control module. this will fix this issue. this specific device is ruined and, unable to initiate the wash cycle correctly due to circuit damage.

Whirlpool commercial washer stopped running mid


Most likely the pump is plugged with lint, pillow stuffing, a small object, or some other obstruction which is not allowing the motor to turn.

It fills and agitates. Fills up then stops, makes a buzzing noise and will not drain or spin. What could be wrong?


in order to accurately diagnose this i will need the model number, but it could be that your lid switch is faulty, therefore not allowing your washer to go into a spin cycle. for safety reasons. another cause of this could be from a bad timer, if your timer stops after the agitation cycle and does not continue to count down then you have a bad timer.

HELP!! Washer machine wont work. Doesnt drain or spin. Clicks to drain and spin but nothing happens, the timer still counts down as if everything is fine.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

If the machine starts, fills and goes through its' agitate cycle fine, the problem is likely not in the motor or transmission.

This type of washer uses a reversible motor. When turning one way, the machine agitates the clothes.

When the timer gets to the spin cycle, the motor reverses, drives the pump (directly from the motor) for a period of time and then goes into spin cycle.

This appears then that is is either the connection to the motor itself or the timer.

The timer is driven by a separate motor on the control panel so if the contacts for the spin cycle are worn, the timer will move but the motor won't turn on.

I have a very old (16 yrs +/-) whirlpool washer that tries to fill with water, but seems to drain straight out. Unfortunately, the first time I noticed the problem, I started a load of wash and left...when...


You probably have a floor drain rather than a drain pipe which is higher than the pump. hold the drain hose up while its filling or make it go up (about as high as half the machine height) before it goes back down to the drain. (At least to check it out) The pumps shouldn't siphon out but some do.

Washer will not fill


Your drain pump is obstructed. You need to remove the bottom panel to access the drain pump. The drain pump will be in the front center of the unit. Once accessed you will see a large knob/screw this will need to be turned clockwise (be ready with some towels and bucket) once you have it open, you should be able to clean out the trap. Reverse to reassemble.. Good luck.. Hope this helps... Bill

Frigidaire (LTF2940E) Washer starts, stops, starts, stops...


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Agitates but won't do anything in spin mode, won't drain


If it has a mechanical timer, that's most likely your problem. Not a hard fix. Most any "Do It Yourself" book can be used to show you how to swap timer. Getting one may be your biggest problem.
If it agitates, it's not the motor. You said the time seems to stop.
