Is there water over the pump housing? Is intake on the bottom clear of debris? This may sound stupid, but is hose frozen or blocked?

Will run great for about 5min at full throttle then will start to miss on one or two sounds like turn off and fish hr.or so then start up and it will run great again for 5 mins and do it again (help)

Common problem is water pump impeller is bad. Should be checked every spring. When water pump isn't providing enough water to cool motor, thermocouple in motor will stop motor to avoid damage. When motor cools, it will restart and run until it overheats again.

Holding water

Good Day,
Your washing machine is fully automatic?
the washing cycle is normal?
if yes do the same maybe it will help you.
for the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
Remove drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any small item that coz of clog up.
if your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running? the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or water stuck,
if the drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.

Pool pump not pumping

A few things to look at-

  • Did you fill the pump pot with water?
  • Check to make sure that the pot lid o-ring is in place.
  • Verify that your plumbing is sound and has no suction leak.
  • Check water level in pool.
  • Make sure the voltage is correct. Many pumps come pre-wired for 220v. If you have 110v supplying the motor it will run at half speed. There is a diagram on the side of the motor showing how to convert to 110V. Make sure that your supply is 110v before converting the motor. If you switch the motor to run on 110v and hook it up to 220v it will ruin the motor instantly.

1 HP StaRite Pump 15" inout Center Discharge 240V wHair Lint Pot: Impellers on pump wont turn. Motor not running...

what happens is the pump gets staved for water and this damages the shaft seal, water slowly over time leaks into the motor and pollutes the grease int the bearing and causes it to fail. it's fairly easy fix, just have the motor rebuilt by your local pool pump motor repair guy for about 75.00 and your back up and running. beats paying 200.00 or more for a new motor.
the sta rite is the top of the line pump, i have had them in my shop over 40 years old ! ask your motor repair guy how to get the most life out of your pump. knowledge is king .. remember to prime the pump after any pump repair !! .. jay longwood florida

I removed my pump because water would not drain. i plugged up and pump still does not move, but winding sound is present. Does the motor require a load to run? And does this mean the pump is bad?

Hi, water pump doesn't require load to run, check motor (coi)l with ohm meter (multi-tester), check for continuity, good job, removing pump and cleaning it, it's a commom problem with washing machine. it's possible your pump motor burnt out, two things you can do, to check pump, (1) two wires that you remove from pump motor, put volt meter,put power to machine, be careful, check for correct voltage, if voltage is present, and pump didn't work, then water pump motor, burnt out (2) remove water pump, make extension cord, plug directly to receptacle, if it's good, it will run, if it didn't run, replace it, good luck

Last cycle water will not emptying

Your pump is more than likely shot!

Defective Lid Switch
Check lid switch for proper operation. Check the switch for continuity. If it is found to be open, replace the switch assembly.
Defective Water Pump
If the motor is running and water is not pumping it could be a defective water pump. Ensure the tub to pump water hose is clear. If so, replace the pump.

Defective Motor
If the motor is not running, the pump will not work. Most washing machine use a reversible motor and it is possible for the machine to agitate and not spin or drain.
