    Tech17, Many thanks for the help. I took the pump out and found a nickel in it. Just put it back together and it pumps and spins fine now! Thanks a lot for trying to help me.

Well it turns out that the machine will stiil not spin with water in it. After putting the pump back in (after finding the nickel in it), the machine went into the spin (with all water drained from the basket from my taking out the pump). To confirm that it would spin I put it into a full wash cycle. At the end it would not spin and all water remained in the basket with the clothes. I'm wondering now if it will not spin because the water is not being pumped out and it is not being pumped out because the pump impeller was damaged by the nickel and therefore the pump needs to be replaced?

Does it move at all in the spin cycle? If it does, try to open the door during the spin cycle and tell me if the door opens or stays locked.

Door Lock Clicks/Makes noises Washer does not agitate/spin


Sounds like very worn motor brushes to me, as its trying to turn the drum but has'nt the power needed to maintain any momentum,and the blinking door light is because of the bad cotact from brushes to motor.About £20 for a set of brushes or get an engineer to fit new brushes,but get a price first.
