Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry, I do not know your particular washer model but try this- no promises!

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

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 most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

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!

Kenmore Washer Doesn't Agitate


Don't be too sure the drive coupler hasn't failed or is failing

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSB6300PW0 is about 6.5 years old. In the middle of a wash it started making a very loud humming noise. The machine wont agitate or spin. It still fills and drains the water...


Renee,

This might be too late for you but hope it helps!

I was able to fix a similar problem with the same model washer of a similar age so see if any of the following helps you.

Our washer died during a rinse/spin cycle and started making a horrific spinning/clicking sound when it was supposed to be agitating or spinning. It filled and drained like normal, and the horrific noise stopped when the lid was lifted.

Because of those two facts, I discovered it was likely the direct drive coupling, which connects the washer's motor to the transmission.

Turns out, that horrific sound was indeed the sound of one of the couplings spinning uselessly after it broke.

After some internet research, I discovered it was a simple matter of getting and installing the new coupling, which was very easy to do with a little professional help via YouTube:



Also, here is the website of a parts supplier with great schematics and great prices that I bought the part from.

Good luck!

My machine starts to cycle and then it stops waits awhile then I get an error code F35. The machine will start and run without a load in it and cycles ok I can change to heavy duty cylce and it will run....


Hi, F35 has to do with the pressure switch which is located under the top panel on the back right. It will have a little black hose hooked to it. This happens when SUDS or detergent somehow gets up into it and usually locks unit out. Only solution is to replace pressure switch. You can find the tech sheet behind the bottom front panel usually tape to the back side of that panel or taped to the bottom right side inside unit.

Take care

Rinse problem


Sounds like a timer issue. Try this, Yes it sometimes works. Spin the timer knob vigorously six to ten complete turns. It may be that the contacts are stuck together and this frequently frees them. Timers are expensive, so this is worth a try. Good luck.

Washer stops during rinse cycle and isn't easily restartable....


Sounds like the contacts in the timer has a problem. Unplug washer. Remove the back of the washer and spray WD40 in the timer. Put towels around and under to to collect excess runoff.
Rrotate washer dial 25 times and spray some more wd40. Rotate 25 times again. Do a wash load. If it works put everting back together.

EZ3612 - spins for couple of times then stops with burning smell and mode light blinking 13 times


Per the service manual, if the mode light blinks 13 times, there's a bad dryer sensor or thermostat. I'm not sure if that related to your problem but it's a start.
