Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)

Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.

Good luck,

John C

Washer wont agitate or spin

Sounds like your transmission is going bad. usually they will pop the belt when going out. Probably with a service call and the cost of the transmission, you'd do better heading to sears. Sorry to bear the bad news. Good luck.

My pavt910aww is full of water and has no power it seems???

You most likely have a bad lid switch.
Check the switch with a volt/ohm meter set for continuity.
No reading on the meter is a bad switch.

Hi jamac74

The leak could be comming from one of 2 places, either the pump or the main seal. the best way to find wherer the leak is comming from is to take the front panel off. you can do this by poping the top up there is 2 clips that hold the top down. use a putty knife to pop the top up then there is 2 screws holding the front on.
