Washing Machine fills and emptys but does nothing else.....
A few weeks ago my machine was smelly and not spinning, it was recommended to me to do a hot cycle with some bleach in. This has made it work ok for a little while and at least took the smell away. Now the machine fills and emptys but doesn't do anything else. The drum doesn't turn at all. Help is really needed I have 3 kids under 5 all getting dirty.

9 years a good life for Washing Machine, I can't see why you have this problen , since you cleared it by taking sock out of filter, but expensive to get repairer to look at it , as 9 years old , get a new one . Better than spending money on a repair,
You have one of the best washers ever made... It is called a "Direct Drive" by us technicians. You probably need this part, but NEVER get rid of this machine as NOTHING out there is this good- not for anyprice. https://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Whirlpool-Washing-Machine-Motor-Coupling/285753A/1195967?modelNumber=LSQ9110PW3&ss=a11b5d654521&mr=1
I have this problem with my Siemens machine, it is due to mainly running low temp washes and bateria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe). I run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) I buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time I did mine I ran the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out. My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months. Hope this helps. Roni. (ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)
more than likely the pump needs replacing, first of all remove the outlet drain hose from the the place it discharges and lower it into a bucket,this should allow it to syphon away,you may need to empyt the bucket a few times once the machine is empty you should be able to put it on its spin cycle once it has spun locate and remove the filter to remove any objects or lint, fill machine with warm water and try to drain and spin via the programme,if this do not work fit a new pump
Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
