Okay...I'm a little confused on your symptoms. You initially said it fills, but doesn't agitate or spin, but drains.

Then, you finished with the washer filling, no agitate or spin, but now doesn't drain.

Which one is it?

The symptoms you describe are usually associated with the following:

1. Fills, may or may not agitate, won't spin or drain - lid switch.
2. Fills, may or may not agitate, won't spin, but still drains - motor coupling.
3. Fills, may or may not agitate, won't spin or spins slow - gear case.
4. Fills, agitates, spins, but does not drain – water pump.

NOTE: These are the more common failure items with these symptoms.

Double check the lid switch by opening and closing the lid. You should hear a clicking noise to indicate the switch is working. The switch is located under the top panel along the wash tub rim on the right-hand side. If not, check to make sure the lid strike (small plastic piece on the lid itself) is in place. This activates the lid switch when the lid is closed. Also, check the mounting screws along the rim (there are two of them) to see if they are tight.

If the motor coupling were bad, the washer would still drain, but there would be a rattling sound as the washer tries to spin or agitate.

If you need replacement parts, go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number in the "Search by Model Number" window. The lid switch can be found under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as item number 11 (part #3949238). Instructions on how to replace are located at the following link:

If you wish to replace the motor coupling, the part can be found under the “Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor/Pump” heading as item number 13 (part #285753A). If you need instructions on how to replace, just follow this link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385250-replacing_motor_coupling_kenmore_top

Now, there’s a couple of ways to drain the washer. If it’s a simple lid switch problem, you don’t need to drain the washer to replace the switch. With a broken switch repaired, the washer will run and drain by itself. However, if you wish to drain the tub you can use a shop vac to pull a vacuum on the drain hose. This may take a few times depending on the size of the shop vac. These wash tubs typically have about a 35 gallon capacity. If you do not own a shop vac, you can by-pass the lid switch by jumpering the two BLACK wires at the lid switch connector that is connected to the console. CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the washer before jumpering, then plug back in.

I hope this information is helpful to you. If I’m wrong about the symptoms, please post back and update me on what the washer is or is not doing, so I can assist you further.

DISCONNECT POWER-- PUMP IS ALWAYS LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!, oh yea and youl need a bag to collect the water when you disconnect the hose, YOURE GONNA GET WET!!

It sound like the carbon brushes in the motor may need changing. It sohuld still be okay to get repaired, as most machines have generic brushes for all of thier models. It's worth calling an engineer and suggesting that the brushes have gone in the motor to get a quote on the repair job. Some engineers will come out and give you a free quote anyway.

My washing machine motor not rotating in washing cycle. Motor works well in Spinning cycles, but not working agitatewashing movement in any cycle. It's water filling, stopping and draining all works


Would help to have the model and type...but typically if the tub is not agitating the coupling between the motor and the tub is worn out or broken. However, if it is spinning properly, it probably indicates a problem with the transmission. Really need to know what type of washer it is to help pin down the problem. Any "burnt" smells coming from the washer? Give a little more information and maybe we can figure it out. Top load...side load, make and model preferred. You can locate that information on a plate usually attached inside the door on most models.

Machine starts to spin out of control


Both problems could be related to a blocked drain, from what I can see in the manual. 3 Things to check -

1. Clean the filter - instructions can be found on age 24 of the manual.
2. Check the drain hose has no kinks/securely fitted.
3. Check the drain trap under the sink for blockages. Make sure waste water can drain away freely.

Keep a couple of old towels handy when checking the drain filter, if water is trapped in the machine, it will flow out of the filter housing when you remove it. Try a drain cycle for a minute or two before you remove the filter, then turn the machine off, and check it. That way you'll have drained as much water as it will allow.

The manual can be found here- http://service.candy-domestic.co.uk/manuals/pdfs/CNW156.pdf

  • Is the belt broken? Loose?

  • Does the lid switch click when closing?

  • Does the spin solenoid engage?

  • drive copuling worn out? (on some newer Whirlpool & Kenmore top loaders)
  • clutch worn out?
  • Current to motor? (Use voltmeter to check)

Filling with water then does not finish cycle


There should be a sensor on the door that tells it the door is shut. Check that this is being pressed when the door is shut. You should see it where the doormeets the washer and can use something to press it. Put your washing in spin cycle and press it if it starts spinning there is your problem( make sure the washer is empty ). If it still doesn't work you will most likely need a repairman.

Washing machine candy grand'o 1400 has stuck, vanish stain light


Ok, turn the washing machine off and unplud. Open the flap at the bottom left of the machine. Put a bucket underneath it. Unscrew the cap. Water will pour out - lots of it and very quickly - so make sure you have a bucket underneath it and lots of towels round that.
Once the water has drained out, check there are no blockages in there. You may find that some coins or buttons flush out with the water. That will be your problem.
Once clear, screw the plug back in and turn on machine.
