The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use quite hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

My wahser just stopped working it filled with water and then started agitating and then all the sudden stopped please help


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

    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.

    Washer won't advance from cycle to cycle


    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.

    Will not drain or spin


    Unless you jarred the machine it's the timer. You can check this by bypassing the lid switch and seeing if it will cycle.
