2. Remove the front lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about quarter inch or until a click is heard.

Yes the transmission can seize. Check to see if the water inlet is blocked. Shut water off and discount hot and cold water inlets to see if they are blocked. If so then further invesigation is needed to see if something jammed inside the machine like a penny, diamond ring, earring, loose change or something small stopping the spin cycle. If this is the case you might have blown the circuit within the machine. Hope this is helpful

SOURCE: why does my westinghouse 708

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT it could stand for 'filter error'.

I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

My mastermind 708 dosen't spin after wash cycle.It spins fine in the wash cycle but dosen't drain water or spin in the spin cycle.Pease help


Your empty pump filter is blocked with debris. If it can't evacuate all the water then it wont allow the spin cycle to start. Locate the filter (probably behind a little door at the botton of the front of the machine). Remove, clean and remove the debris, re-fit and all will be well

I have a Westinghouse mastermind 708 washing machine and it does not spin after wash cycl. i think it might be the pump to pump water out, it still makes a humming noise


I would check the internal coin trap/drain to make sure it is not blocked with socks or 3-in1 dryer sheets. If the water does not drain it backs up and causes error messages and spin problems. These are normally not listed in the manual so you have to take off a panel to find it. Could be at the bottom or in the back. Unscrew and check the trap and remove any blockage. Prepare for a mess if you can't fit a bucket under the trap!
