? im confused are you saying its not filling with water or its not emptying of water , if its not emptying of water , yes its true the pump in it is driven by a motor and yes they d go bad and yes if the pump wont turn then yes it wont empty out , this makes sense to the blinking light of water detection you see ? ohh and most times the pump and motor are all one assembly , if it wont fill with water then you need to ck the inlet valves they get clogged or go bad too ) there is no motor that is assoc with these valves that I know of
This is usually caused by the recycling pump running empty whilst the washing is still soaking up the initial fill water. as the water begins to soak the clothes it then starts to pass through the drum into the pump and the whole thing quietens down. running empty will not work. to test this theory try opening the drawer very slightly and filling it manually with a hose before starting the machine, (ONLY TO THE NORMAL LEVEL) and see if the noise is still as bad.
If this machine is older then 8 years, It may have died. Also, If the machine was recently over-filled with too many clothes, and if it is over-filled on a regular basis, it can destroy the machine's ability to turn the drum. We had a similar problem with an old machine...someone over filled it and the drum died.
If it fills then the next phase is to agitate.
To do that the motor must drive
Can you hear a whirring sound from the machine if you get close to it if so then the belt driving driving drum may have snapped.
If not then the motor brushes may have stuck or have worn out.
Does the machine programmer advance by itself or are you turning the dial
