Question about KitchenAid KAWS850L Top Load Washer
I have a Kitchenaid KAWS850JQ3 washing machine that is no longer draining or spinning. I do not feel it is the lid switch because it does click when I close the lid and it makes a humming sound like it is trying but it can't. I have checked the hoses and it fills fine and drains manually through the hose. Do you agree it is most likely the pump? It appears this is a belt-less drive unit so no belts to check. Also do you have instructions (hopefully with pictures) on how to remove the base cabinet to get to the pump?
Thanks for any and all help you can give!
Hi, It does sound like something might be in the pump. You might be able to rremove the pump by tipping the washer against the wall and removing the clips off the pump and hoses to release it from the motor. Here is the instructions to remove the cabinet to get to the pump if the first idea doesn't work.
Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two
screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in
front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise
the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch
harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside.
Make sure that the front lip of the cabinet slips under the rail of the frame. Ease the cabinet on the frame making sure the two rear sides of the cabinet set down on the tabs of the frame. Put the two clips back on that hold the cabinet and plug the lid switch back in. Fasten the control panel down and you are all set.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
