Question about Washing Machines
When it's in pump-out (spin), the washer DOES make sounds, there is probably something clogging the hose going to the pump. Pair of panties, children's sock, anything relatively small. This will be BEFORE the pump. You'll have to remove the cabinet from the front (easy job), remove the hose going to the pump, and check it out. There should be a little square door compartment at the bottom front or side of machine. Open it and unscrew the cap of the button trap. Water should come out, inspect for blockage of hair pins, coins or other obsructions.If it is still not pumping clear then there may be more debris further up inside the pump where you can't reach it.Further dismantling may be require of the pump component to get to the blockage.
Or Remove the screws from the bottom front panel.Remove the panel.Unscrew the filter located in the center.Clean the coins/hairpins/screws/lint/etc. etc.
Replace the filter.Replace the lower panel.Resume your wash.
If, when it's in pump-out (spin), the washer just has a faint hum, the pump is probably locked down (pair of panties, children's sock, anything relatively small). Replace the pump.
If, when it's in pump-out (spin), the washer is quiet, the lid switch is broken. Very common problem. Replace the lid switch.
