SOURCE: Kenmore Series 70 won't spin

Sounds like you have got a basket drive and sub-pack issue. These are very hard to change out because it requires you to remove the inner basket, motor, transmission, agitator, pump, etc. The part number for these are:

Clutch Kit (Sub-Pack): 285785
Basket Drive/Spin Tube: 285792

If you think your up to the task, let me know and will send you some general info on getting the stuff in and out. Good Luck!!!!

SOURCE: washer stops and start button blinks

The solution is pretty simple. there is a filter located right before the water pump.
* Remove the lower panel (lower as if you were looking at the front of the machine)
* Remove the 3 screws (it is easy if you have the lower drawer unit .. you will have to 'get low' if you don;t have it)
* You will see a 3" cap right facing you (in the center)
* GET A POT. and place it below the cap (foul water will come out when you remove the cap)
* remove the cap (finger tight)
* I found coins, hair, lint, dollar bills .. etc (about the size of a roll of cookie dough)
* Take CLEAN water and dump it into the washing machine (this will clean out the tube/hose)
* replace cap
* run machine BEFORE you put the cover back on (make sure it doesn;t leak)
* replace cover/screws

Good luck!

SOURCE: washer not draining all the way

OK, so I had no luck finding any information on the WSXH208A. I knew this problem was possibly related to a clogged filter because of the responses related to other machines, but where the heck is the filter on this model...not easily found. Finally, after some persistence, I found it. The filter is inside the black rubber piece that attaches the drum to the pump. It is a small clear plastice piece with holes in it located inside the black rubber piece. Detach the black rubber piece from it's 3 connections...1 to the bottom of the drum (unscrew the tightening screw at the top metal wire to loosen the connection), 1 connection to the pump and one other connection coming from the top somewher (both of these are connected with press-grip clasp type things). Take the entire black rubber piece out (make sure to have plenty of towels layed out and a pan to catch the water if you can. My pan didn't catch much, but the towels soaked it up anyway. Pull the filter out from inside the black rubber piece once disconnected. I actually had a dollar bill wrapped around the inside of my filter, completely blocking it. Once the filter is cleared, put everything back together. Make sure all connections are on tight to prevent any leaks. Hope this works for you...I was happy to fix it myself and avoid the costly repair-man!

SOURCE: Is it OK to run a washer without water

All you can test without water, is the spin and pump functions..
The heater and the wash action will not work without the correct amount of water in the washer.
Hope this helps.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

SOURCE: ge front load washer won't go into rinse cycle.

Check the cold water hose. My brand new machine had this behavior until I discovered a kink in the cold water hose - works great now.

Samsung dishwasher makes a loud buzzing sound when the water is filling. It pulses a couple times to start then is constant. It pulses again right before the wash cycle. Comes from the bottom left.


This is common. The noise is coming from the water pump. If it bothers you, you can try UNPLUGGING the washer or turn off the Circuit breaker first. Then you can remove the bottom kickplate on the front of the washer and clean around the pump. If there is a water filter scree, clean it out. Make sure there is nothing rubbing against the pump which could cause a buzz. Tighten all fittings and screws to eliminate vibration noise.

2-yr old troy-bilt pressure washer with honda gcv160 engine. seems to run well, but when trigger is pulled get full pressure for less than 5 seconds before reducing to house water pressure. when left...


It sounds like an air lock. Try this: With the machine off, connect the hose to the washer and let it run for several minutes to get all of the air out of the hose, and to purge any air out of the pump. Shut off the water, and connect the high pressure hose, but not the gun. Let the water run for several minutes. stretch out the HP hose and make sure that the air is displaced. Shut off the water, connect the gun, and purge as before. Now crank it washer up. As quickly as safe to do so, open the trigger to keep water moving through the washer. It should come up on pressure very quickly. It is better during normal operation to keep water moving through the system. When I am through for a while, I shut down my washer, but leave the trigger depressed to allow the pump to stay full of water, and cool. This prevents further problems when I restart it.
Hope this was useful.

Regards --W/D--

Won't pump out water at the end of wash or rinse cycle.


I don't know this model at all, but hada similar set of syptoms on an electrolux .....

Just a thought, but have you checked the pump chanber is not impeded by a stray hairgrip, or bit of wire?

The fact it doesn't pump when it should, but allows water to pass when the centrifugal force of a spin cycle builds up, would indicate that maybe its the pump that either has a jammed impeller, or a blown motor (or fuse).

When washer is filling it makes a load screeching noise


Hi, welcome...
Your water pump is going bad most likely. This is easy to diagnose and also easy to repair. Under the control panel on top is a "tech sheet" that explains how to put the washer in "test mode". Set the machine in test mode and run the water pump independently and you will probably hear this same "schreeching" sound. The water pump runs at the begining of the wash cycle to recirculate the water and mix the detergent with the incoming fresh water. You also can "check" this by using the "PERMA PRESS" cycle. The perma-press does not use the recirculation feature, so the schreeching noise will be delayed to the first rinse cycle if the pump is bad.
The part number is 420325P and you can get them from http://www.fisherpaykelparts.net
