It could be multiple problems, if so it's more than one of the below, it would be cheaper to buy a new unit.

Start by removing the front panel and check the belt and idler pulley/tensioner. Look for wear in both and make sure there isn't too much play (it should only move about a 1/2 inch when pushed on it's longest stretch. While you have the front open, inspect the pulley for damage or excessive play.

Another cause could be the transmission (it's just above the pulley). Look for fluid/oil leaks and/or rust. A bad oil leak can cause the transmission to seize up. If you notice rust accumulated on the transmission assembly, you probably have a bad seal. Water could have gotten in there causing it to fail. A damaged transmission needs to be replaced, repair parts are not available.

The cycling problem sounds like a faulty timer. Test it by advancing the dial and make sure the correct cycles are starting/stopping. This part can be replaced with a few simple tools.

As always, make sure you disconnect the power before doing any service.

My Front Loader washer will not fill with water, It makes the sound but water does not go into the machine. I was having a problem with the washer pausing itself continously and then making draining...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

28+ year old- Speed Queen Heavy Duty top loader


It sound like you drain hose is siphoning off the rinse water, It needs a standpipe make sure the drain hose is at about the height of the top of the washer, Make sure the drain hose isnt stuck in the drain it also needs an air cap. the drain hose should not lay on the floor to run to the drain

Please let me know if this doesnt solve your problems
