It appears your inlet strainer or pump impeller is clogged with lint in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

I have a LG Fuzzy logic for a year and a half now, model WF-8071TTP top loader. it seems that after washing all my clothes are full of fluff. I have cleaned out the filter bag, and all little filters at...


certain materials give off fluff and some others seem to attract it. you can try putting in similar materials together and avoid mixing turkish bath towels, blankets and jackets and such clothes having fluffy lining with normal clothes. Also try selecting higher water level (overriding the automatic selection) manually. Once when i had fluff on clothes, it turned out to be tissue paper from my child's jeans pockets. After cleaning the filter bag, run the machine empty at maximum water level every week. Hope one of these will help solve your problem.

Odors on the clothes after washing in Maytag front loader


The brand of your front loader is not that material on this issue. What is happening is that your old top load washer may have used as much as 45 gallons of water per cycle, while some front loaders use as little as 12. Because of the low water use, you must cut back on the additives you are using. Use only 1 tablespoon of HE detergent (even less if 2x or 3x detergent) per load. If you use fabric softener, use only 1 teaspoon per load. Odor on clothes after wash is indicating that the detergent and or softener has not been fully rinsed out. If you throw a load of washed towels into your machine and start a cycle without any soap, then stop the cycle, you should not see any suds. If you do, there is obviously soap left in the clothes. With bath towels, the towels are used to absorb clean water off a clean body. They do not need soap when you wash them, and never use fabric softener on towels.

My old Hoover top loader Washer is noisy & doesn't spin out properly - how can I fix it?


Sounds like the switch which cuts the machine off when the load is unbalanced. My guess is that: This switch is being triggered too easily The springs holding the bowl up are either stretched or one is broken; The machine may not be level.
