SOURCE: washer not spinning and draining water

I just had a similar problem. I broke down and had a repair man come out to take a look. He pulled off the front lower cover, took off the inlet hose on the water pump, and found my two year old daughters sock stuck in the turbine of the water pump. The motor runs both the drum and the pump, therfore it would not spin, and would not let the water drain.

Everything was fine until tonight. I'm having the same problem again. I pulled everything off just like my repair man did, but no sock. I think I might wind up pulling off the whole pump to check the otlet side.

Anyone else have any suggestions?

MNM,

I suspect that your "lid lock" mechanism has gone to appliance perts heaven. If the timer "thinks" the lid isn't completely closed and locked, it'll shut everything down when it's time to spin and drain. It's a safety feature... I mean, you wouldn't want this thing spinning at full speed and have a 5 year old lift the lid and stick her paw in there only to have it torn out of the socket, would you? Yuck! (was that too graphic?)

Anyway, here's what I'll need you to do. You gotta get access to the lid lock and run a TEMPORARY bypass on it to verify my theory, OK? You'll also need to UNPLUG THE MACHINE BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ELSE!!!! If you don't, you run a high risk of a funky new do and some time in the Hospital.

Click this link, you'll see a main picture and 4 "thumbnails"... I want you to look at the last one. It'll show you a micro-switch in detail. This is what I believe to be at issue and this is what we'll bypass for testing purposes. All you need to do to access it is remove the front panel.

Look at the lower right and left of the front panel, you'll see 2 Phillips screws there, remove them. Now grasp the front panel and pull straight down to unlatch it from its' clips. Then pull the panel toward you and set it aside. Now that you can see inside the cabinet, look to the top right and you'll see the lid lock. Since you've UNPLUGGED THE WASHER, you are not afraid to remove the 2 wires attached to the switch (shown in the link above).

Now that you have the wires off, you'll need to build a "bypass tool". My favorite (and the one I carry in my tool bag) is made from a paper clip. Take a paper clip and straighten it all the way out. Then bend it into a "U" shape. Starting at the bend, wrap it with vinyl electricians tape most of the way up to the exposed 2 prongs (leave about 1/2" exposed). Now take these prongs and insert one into one terminal and the other into the other terminal. Make sure they are firmly and completely seated.

Now plug the machine in and set it to spin. I suspect that it fired right up. If it did, we just verified the failed component... the lid lock assy. You can buy it online by plugging this number (134101800) into a search engine, or pick one up at a local appliance parts retailer.

IF, and only if, this didn't fix your problem, write back to me and I'll take the diagnostic a little deeper for you. Otherwise, please don't forget to rate this as "FixYa", OK? (It took me longer to write this than it would have to fix it, so show some love, K?)

SOURCE: LG makes a high pitched sound during water add cycle

Hello.
The high pitched sound is a definite sign that the water valve in use is failing. The squeal is from a restricted water flow through the valve because it is not opening all the way. You will need to choose cold or hot to narrow down which valve is bad and replace that one.

Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. Use a multimeter or ohmmeter and check the solenoids for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Another possible cause would be a water level switch, but not with it running on only the cold water side. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Put some water in the washer tub, a few gallon should do it. Then turn machine back on, it will recognize when the water has drained out and stop that cycle.

Hot water will not stop flowing. Hot water


Sounds like a bad shutoff solenoid. It operates the valve to let water in and then shut it off. There should be a valve behind the machine where the hose connects to the wall so you don't have to isolate hot water to the entire house.

Washer quit working in middle of cycle, won't even come on


Look under the washer. Is there a little pile of black rubber shavings? With the heavy load, you may have broken the basket coupler between the motor and the drum. Try turning off the selector, and move it one click at a time towards the end of the cycle and turning back on. Hopefully it will drain for you. If the coupler is the problem it is inexpensive to fix. Some also call this part the "clutch". It kind of looks like a hockey puck with six holes in it... three for the motor, three for the clothes drum.s-l225.jpgs-l225.jpg I attached pictures of a couple types. This part is a common problem when you put a heavy load in, because the rubber takes more stress.

Maytag washer MAH2400AWW problem. It stopped in the middle of washing and/or rinse cycle without finishing the work. It won't spin and the water is not draining. It only makes buzz sound and can't start...


Hi and welcome to Fixya. Usually when a unit stops in mud-cycle and the motor buzzes there is something lodged between the wash tub and the outer tub.

Draining must be done manually before you can open the door. You can try dropping the drain hose down and gravity drain the washer. If that does not work then the only other option is to unplug the unit and disconnect the tub to pump hose. Be prepaired for an immediate water mess if you manage to get the hose completely free of the fitting all at once. You only need to drain it until the water level is below the door seal.

Once you get the water out open the door then sue a flashlight to search for what it is that is preventing the tub from turning.

Don't forget to reconnect and clamp the drain hose if you disconnected it and plug the washer back in.

Thanks for using Fixya. Kelly

Washer tub won't fill up with water


Sounds like you may have a siphoning problem. Have you checked the drain line by pulling it up out of the standpipe while the washer was filling? You may have a vacuum causing the water to constantly siphon. The following link explains this:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

Having the drain hose high enough may not be the problem. You could very well have the hose stuffed in the standpipe too tight, or placed in the pipe too far. Please doublecheck and let me know if you need further assistance.

In addtion, please post the make and model number of your washer for better advice.
