Have you looked to see if the belt is still on?

Testimonial: "The belt is on and the motor runs. Turns out that the splines on the agitator were stripped (where agitator fits over motor shaft) So the motor runs, but it doesnt turn the agitator>"

SOURCE: my lg top loader washing machine model T1308TEFTO is indicating error PE code and just wont start the washing program what can be the problem please help

Check the pressure switch -the system that determines correct water level in the drum. If its giving an incorrect indication to the program timer machine will either overfill, refuse to fill or refuse to spin. Its an air operated diaphragm switch triggered by rising air pressure induced by the entry of water into an airtight vessel attached to the base of the drum. It tells the program timer that the water has reached the correct level, allowing it to proceed to the water heating stage in the cycle. Power off, drag machine out onto the floor, remove back cover and top cover. The pressure switch is a round item about 3 inches across with several wires and a thin rubber pipe attached. It generally sits just under the top cover. Disconnect the thin rubber pipe from the switch and blow down through it to clear any blockage. Switch itself may be faulty but its more likely the pressure pipe or the vessel attached to the other end of the pipe is blocked. Some machines have the pressure vessel integrated as part of the filter unit, with a pressure chamber moulded into the top of the filter body. Remove the pressure vessel, put a small nut or screw in it, fill it with water and shake vigorously till any crud or residue is removed. Refit all parts, check that joints and connections are water tight.
Also check the filter itself - generally located behind a panel at the foot of the machine.Some are obvious like little square hatches and some are hidden behind the trim panel at the foot of the machine. Once panel is removed the filter should be visible. Its generally a circular plastic fitting which unscrews in an anticlockwise direction. Some hotpoint, indesit and ariston filters are located in the big black sump hose (the one that leaves the bottom of the outer drum and connects to the pump). Power off, drag machine out onto the floor, remove back cover or tip machine up at an angle. Locate sump hose, remove the tensioner clip by squeezing the tabs together with a large pair of pliers or vise grips, remove the hose, take out filter and clean. Be prepared for spillage of water. May help if the machine is tilted backwards at an angle.

Whirlpool washing machine LA5310XPWO wont agitate -- what would cause this and how can it be repaired?


Is this a top or front loader? If it is a top loader do you hear the motor run? If you do the first thing to check is the rubber driver between the motor and the transmission. One way to chek if the motor runs is to fill it with water and put it into spin. If it pumps the water out that means the motor runs. If the rubber driver is broke (happens often) it will neither wash nor spin.

Wont agitate or spin tryied putting on drain spin setting pump will run and run but wont spin


Top loader washers the main reason is either the motor coupling has failed. You will hear a grinding or growling or whirring noise or the lid switch has failed. The lid switchy will keep it from spinning but usually it will agitate. Check and make sure the drum is not froze and won't move, if it is free, check the coupling under the tub and make sure the motor and tranny are connected. If they are then the transmission may have failed. If this is a front loader the main reasons are a bad motor.

My whirl pool washing machine no longer spins. I just stopped on day. I can hear the motor trying to turn the drum but it doesnt.


Hi. This is a possible broken belt. You will need to access the drive assembly to confirm. The symptoms you have posted will often lead to a separated belt.

NOTE(IF this is a top loader, and you are hearing noise during the spin attempt, this will lead to failed motor coupler. Please disregard this note if the unit is a front-loader)
