Chances are extremely good that you just have a broken coupler. These parts range from $15 - $25 on average. Were there any signs of foul play before this problem? Does your washer agitate(plastic fin in the middle rotate back and forth and wash the clothes)? Basically, if the coupler is broken, the machine with neither agitate or spin. However, you do not need a coupler to pump water out :)

I would definitely have it repaired. You should spend a little on the part + labor. Those are excellent washers and they do not make them anymore!

    I also assume that this is a KitchenAid machine. If this is something other than a top loading KitchenAid washer please disregard the advice ;)

Are you saying it is draining the water properly? Because it sounds as though the pump is faulty. Every now and then you get pup motor that don't short out or stop completely they just don't drain we'll anymore. The drain period on your machine is timed so a slow drain may cause the error. So even though everything is clear and 'working' the pump needs replacing. Another cause would be a false reading from the pressure switch(level switch) but you would normally have problems with fill etc also, so unlikely.

Drum will not spin


did he run the diagnostics per the tech sheet within the machine?if it will do everything else but spin out,then the drain pump is plugged,as a plugged drain pump will shut down these front load units,you will need to remove hoses off pump and clean out pump and all hoses from tub to drain stand pipe,by running the diagnostics you can run each washer cycle and see what cycle isnt performing in a matter of 5 minutes versus 1 hour real wash time on some cycles

Stoping under process on every step from begning to ending


its very common for front load washers to have the water pump to freeze up.

ever washed something with sand or little rocks or rubber bands?

flip the washer to the side, then locate the water pump. take the filter and the hoses around the water pump. sometimes the water pump too, to make sure that the fins on the water pump are free and not stuck. put everything together and try the cycle. when the water pump is stuck it will cause the error and will not go into the spin cycle.

Everything works fine but it will not spin


Hi, you got water pump problem, some pump have a filter you can remove and clean, or some some small clothing could get into it. or you can open water pump and manually check for foreign object. you can empty machine, by lowering drain hose to floor level, you will need somthing to collect water, then check pump.

GE toploader Washing Machine pumping problems


Sounds like the water is syphoning away due to the drain outlet hose being too low..Raise the hose higher, and this should solve the poroblem.
