Check :
1. Make sure that the water to the machine is on.
2. If there is water to the hoses, check to make sure the hose screens (inside the end of the hose) are not blocked.

Washing Machine Problems and Repairs


Washing Machine Problems & Repairs If your clothes washer needs repair, you can begin your troubleshooting here A washing machine is basically a big tub that repeatedly fills with water and then drains, spins to wring clothes dry, and has a device for stirring things up-- either an agitator in the middle of a top-load machine or a rolling drum in the case of a front-loader. The four cycles that every washer performs are fill, wash, drain, and spin.
Though there are a number of problems that you can fix quite simply, washing machines have a variety of devices and controls that, when they go wrong, are better left in the hands of an appliance repairperson.
Some problems that commonly occur with a clothes washer are that it doesn't agitate; doesn't drain; doesn't run; shakes, vibrates, or moves; doesn't spin; the water temperature is wrong; or leaks.
If your washer doesn't run, be sure it's plugged in and that the receptacle works (the circuit hasn't overloaded). Before working on the washing machine, be sure to unplug it.
If it doesn't fill, the water inlet screens may be blocked. Clean or replace them. (Check your owner's manual for the location of the screens; they're often located at one end of the supply hoses, or you may have to remove a panel to access them.) Other reasons for not filling may be that either the timer or temperature selector is broken--both of these are repairs for an appliance repairperson.

If your washer doesn't spin, check to see if the clothes have jammed or are unbalanced in the drum before calling a repairperson. Unbalanced clothes will also cause a washer to shudder or “walk.” If straightening out the load doesn't stop the washer from shaking, look at the feet underneath and be sure they are properly adjusted to keep the washer sitting level on the floor (you just turn them to move them up or down).
To prevent problems, follow good maintenance procedures. Use the right amount of detergent for your washer and your water hardness, make sure the machine is level, and don't overload it for the cycle chosen.
Because washing machine hoses are under constant pressure, check periodically for wear because they can flood your home if they burst when you're away. You can prevent this by installing lever-type shutoff valves (shown top right). With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days.

Kenmore washer model #417.42042100 is not spinning the clothes all the way.


First you need to open the cabinet and remove the boot from the tub to the pump and clear the filter. Try that then run a cycle and post back the results.

Lint collecting and sticking on some clothing


Did you sort properly? sort lint givers(towels) form lint takers(syenthetics)

did you over load the washer? the wash load must be balanced clothes should move freely in the water

did you select to correct water level?

did you suse enough detergent? use enough detergent to hol the lint in the water

Did you line dry your clothing? if so you can expect some lint on clothing?

check the following:
was paper or tissue left in the pockets

is your water colder than 70 decrees F washe water colder than 70 decrees may not completely dislolve detergent

did you use the proper cycle time for the load? reducing the wash time is another way to reduce lint

I've just moved house and my machine is not


Hello Friend, I think your machine will work properly if you add a water line splitter. You would connect to the single cold water tap and on the other end you would have two water hoses . Connect one hose to the cold water inlet of your washer and then connect the other hose to the hot water inlet. You can get these at Home Depot. Happy to help, Tim.

Old model rca washer machine...will not agitate/wash the clothes,does spin.


If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.
