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! Wendy~ Water will not drain. Took the pump off, cleared the hoses, reassembled everything. The lid switch is working fine. I tried to run a cycle and the water will not drain, but if you turn the timer to spin..the washer will spin. What could be the issue please??
Yes it is the pump motor, if you say when you close the door, it clicks but can you hear the motor humming, this is a sign the motor is seized up and the power is actually going to the motor, or test with and electric tester,, it is the pump motor I started typing before reading the whole statement,, good luck
