Re: Program stuck at 1, machine keeps running...
SOUNDS LIKE THE TIMER CONTROL MAY BE BAD. IT COULD BE THE ELECTRICS OF THE TIMER OR GEARING THAT ARE BAD.
PERSONALLY I DO NOT !!! RECOMEND TRYING TO TAKE APART AND REPAIRING ELECTRICAL TIMER COMPONENTS.
(CLEANING CONTACTS I HAVE DONE TO GET A/C EQUIPMENT TO RUN FOR THE ELDERLY OR HEART PATEINTS UNTIL A NEW PART IS AVAILABLE... SHIPPED OVER-NIGHT)
ALL CONTACTS !!! ARE DESIGNED TO AN EXACT THICKNESS AND TOLERANCE TO ACCOMIDATE THE AMPRESS LOAD/DRAW. A BAD CONTACT THAT IS CLEANED IS TEMPORARY AND IF TOO MUCH SURFACE IS REMOVED CAUSES HI-AMPREES AND EXCESIVE HEAT ... IT CAN BURNOUT THE MOTOR THAT IT IS CONTROLING DUE TO INSUFFICIENT VOLTAGE WHICH CAUSES HIGH AMPREES WHEN THE MOTOR RUNS.
IF YOU DO DECIDE TO TRY IT ON YOUR OWN? MAKE SURE YOU NUMBER OR "COLOR CODE MARK" ALL WIRES AND CONECTIONS BEFORE YOU REMOVE ANY WIRES ...
GOING TO YOUR LOCAL "APPLIANCE PARTS STORE" WITH TIMER PART IN HAND IS WHAT I RECOMEND ...
MOST COUNTER SALESMEN WILL TEST THE PART FOR YOU.
GOOD LUCK ...

check underneath but normally the pump is a stand alone unit at the bottom of the tub
it gets its power from the program board when it is progressed from wash to spin
problems that stop it from working mostly come from items stuck in the pump impeller preventing the motor from spinning
look for coins , hair pins , bra wires etc that get lodged in the pump housing
Not sure what you are saying, I assume the water is not pumping out at the end of the wash cycle. Is the water draining out at the end of each cycle? Is it spinning at all? Is the exhaust tubing clogged? Is the pump burned out or are you trying to pump it uphill too much. If it's stopping mid wash, try advancing it manually past where it's stuck and see if it continues. I have that problem, the tank fills with water and it gets stuck at the 6 minute changeover. It will run stuck at this point indefinitely if I let it. We just set a timer for the fill time, then manually advance it past this stopping point.
The first thing I would check is the drain line, not for a blockage but to see if the drain line isn't pushed down in the drain so far that its below the level of the pump. If it is you'll have a siphon effect going and the machine will never advance past rinse
The fault is in the timer, the program controller is not moving up as there is a linkage failure in the mechanism.
It will be good to clean and see if the stepper motor is not slipping off the groove. If the motor is running clean and use a WD 40 to clean the gears and contacts.
We had a similar situation with our LG washer. It was not a timer problem.
The machine was not entering the spin cycle and was just stuck in limbo. A sensor or something was not being satisfied and allowing the progression to the next cycle. Our problem had to do with the drain line; it seemed as if it was air locked?? After lowering the drain line height (to reduce the head pressure), and manually draining some water out of the drainage cap (where the strainer is located) onto the floor, the sensor became satisfied and the machine completed its cycles properly.
What told me that it was not a timer issue was the fact that on different wash settings (normal, heavy, quick cycle), the machine timer would get stuck at different countdown points (22mins, 12mins, etc.).
