Fills up- does not drain

My washing machine will fill up with water, and once it does it does not agitiate or anything- I move the knob, then pull it up and it makes a humming noise.

Please help

Re: fills up- does not drain

Had the same problem with washer not draining at first last night, then today it wouldn't spin either. I was browsing around in here, and someone said something about a bad lid switch. My husband checked it out, and there was a loose wire in there. (Hard to get at, but if you can do it, worth it). Fixed the problem and good as new. Hope this helps!

Re: fills up- does not drain

The couplings are relatively cheap, and can be found on Ebay for under $5. Just do a search for "whirlpool coupling".

It is pretty easy to change them, only a few bolts to take the motor off. The hard part is getting the outside covers off first!

If you're adventurous, you can do it without removing the covers and tilting the machine - but do this with extreme caution.

Re: fills up- does not drain

Sounds like a bad motor coupler. If the machine acts like its wanting to run, ie.. buzzing or humming then there is a breakdown between the motor and transmission. Replace the motor coupler to solve the problem

Washer will not cycle

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

You might have a partially clogged drain past your drain hose

Washer won't act right

Most likely this is a problem with the main cycle knob, if for some reason the knob is not fully pulled
out, it just won't work, only fills with water, and the timer is the responsible one for the draining, but
the timer itself is not at fault, have your main knob selector switch checked.
