My washer wont agitate or spin
If this machine is a drum type and NOT A TOP LOADER (There was no mention of the model) then the overload has possibly caused the drive belt to either break or jump off the drum pulley.
IMPORTANT: THERE ARE LIVE SWITCHES AND MAINS SUPPLIES WHEN THE COVER OF THESE MACHINES ARE REMOVED, DO NOT TOUCH OR TAMPER WITH ANY PART, UNLESS THE POWER IS OFF AND THE PLUG REMOVED FROM MAINS SOCKET.
If the belt has slipped off or has broken, it can be replaced by fitting the (new) belt around the motor drive pulley (small end) and refitting around the drum pulley, you can do this by feeding the belt around the drum pulley, by holding the belt in place and feeding onto the pulley (IT IS EASY TO GET YOUR FINGERS NIPPED BETWEEN THE BELT AND LARGE DRUM PULLEY WHEN ATTEMPTING TO FIT BELTS BACK - SO BE VERY CAREFUL)
Best of Luck!!
