Washers empties water but wont ring out clothes


Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design. Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.
Transmission or clutch assembly not engaging due to going out or slipping.

Machine only puts out water.wont spin.


This is a typical problem. If the machine fills up and stops and makes absolutely no noise whatsoever, what you have here is a broken lid switch. The machine simply thinks the lid is open, and therefore does nothing. For your washer, you need a lid switch with a part number of 3949247. Naturally after cracking a machine open you may find uncommon things such as broken and/or burnt wires, but these are unpredictable and highly unlikely.

Washer will fill with water, but will not spin or empty water


What you have there is a broken lid switch I would be willing to bet. I have 2 videos here one shows how to access the lid switch and the other shows how to replace it.

I OVERLOADED THE WASHER AND NOW IT WILL NOT DRAIN OR SPIN


your washer doesnt have a belt, it is a direct drive with a coupling on the motor, so that is not likely your problem.
i would look to see if the lid switch is broken, when the switch wont work it wont spin or drain. if the coupling is broken it wont agitate or spin, but will drain the water.
just look under the top and see if the switch is just hanging loose. it has 2 screws holding it to the cabinet and a wiring harness that goes to the control panel.

There could be 2 possible issues, one, the simplest is the switch activated by the lid, look for a plastic "prong" sticking out from the lid, see where it goes and find a switch, use sometime of similar size and see if you can activate it. If that is eliminated then it is a plastic coupling broken, quite involve, need to remove the back lower section and inspect for this, Had both these issues myself.
