Question about Whirlpool AWM5145/2 Front Load Washer
My washer (Kirkland Signature) begins a cycle fine, but stops at the point when the water should drain. I've found that if I lower the drain hose below the water level, the water will drain into a bucket. So it seems that the pump isn't forcing the water out.
I had taken apart the washer and could find no clogs. I removed the pump and its attached hoses, and the wheel inside seems to rotate - a little tight, but it turns (I don't know how loosely it should rotate). And I couldn't see anything inside the pump that might be in the way.
Any suggestions are appreciated - thanks!
HI, any resistance when turning the impeller in this case will confirm pump failure. these motor should have very slight resistance when manually rotated. the unit will not initiate a full cycle if the pump is defective. replace the pump asap.
