Question about Washing Machines
My Little Giant TP--15ULST won't pump. It runs constantly and if I tap on the top of it I can see (through the drain hose) that it essentially "primes" the pump. Then it works fine for a few pumping cycles and then it goes back to running but no pumping. I opened up the pump. The impeller is not connected to the shaft. Is this just supposed to connect by friction when water pushes up against the impeller or do I need to secure it somehow? Thanks! Scott

Jayron, is the motor jogging? start to spin, stop, start to spin stop. If so, your motor is jogging between the high and low start windings. The motor during spin should start on the high speed windings and stay there until most of the water is drained. GE came out with a new motor, harness and run cap because of this. If you have a meter, there should be a white and white/red wire going to the motor. If you have a steady 120V and it's doing this jogging, replace the motor with the kit...Let me know if this the issue, Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: W640 - Water Outlet Fault
I solved this problem this morning, after several months with intermittent "water outlet fault" error messages.
Our pin trap was cleared many times over the months. The propellor turned freely. However, the problem persisted.
So I unplugged the machine, removed the back panel (8 or so hex screws) and located the point where the drainage hose meets the water draining pump. I then separated the hose from the pump and found 2 United States 10-cent pieces lodged together with gunk that effectively blocked the drainage hose. 10-cent pieces ("dimes") are the perfect diameter to get stuck there and not appear in the pin trap where you could easily see and remove them.
Three loads later, the machine is working according to spec. Hope this helps.
