    I have an Asko washer that also will not spin or agitate. I thought it was because of a dime stuck in it but after reading what someone said about a broken coupler, I am not so sure. Please tell me how to best get inside it to take a look, front or back? Thanks, Anne

    I just did this myself.  My Coupling was broken.

    Here's a video I found from this site.

Rick, for the posted model. This is a direct drive washer, no belt. As long as you are draining, I believe you have a broken motor coupler, about a 19.00 part. Check out the attachment, look at # 13. One end to the motor, the other to the trans. You will have to remove the cabinet, pump and motor to get at it. Easy job. Catriver.

    Motor coupler




The back panel is very simple to remove (10 screws) and provides wide open access to the belt. New belt costs $18 a service rep will charge you $50 plus plus $150 home service charge. Having both the Asko washer and drier for about six years, I have experienced multiple service repair bills that probably equal the value of buying new machines, so I now do the repairs myself, in fact I just removed the back panel on my washer about an hour ago to replace the washer motor (to the tune of $278). I'll stick with American made in the future or maybe that means Chinese made?

Whirlpool cabrio model 6300sw1 won't aggitate and gives ol code

It is overload error.
"oL" (Over Load)
Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to fill •
and begin the wash cycle. If the washer is overloaded, it will
drain any water and detergent that was added during the fill.
To correct the overload, remove several items and add
detergent. Close lid and press START.

My whirlpool Estate washer is not draining or spinning but aggitates, what can be the problem?

Sounds like a cycle switch problem. The switch is not turning and making contact with the next cycle. It needs to be changed!

I have a GE toploader washer. The model # is WBSR1060T (VVSRV1040V, & YVSR1040V were also on the washer too) the washer keeps filling to the max setting no mater what the water level is set on, also...

Remove the front panel of the washer by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips, located in the seam between the front panel and the washer's top, about 2 inches in from each side. With an empty wash tub, remove the small hose on the left side of the outer tub and clean out the inside of the hose. Replace the hose. Test.

I have a GE topload washer, I think the model # is WBSP1060T( there were three model # on the washer-VVSRV1040V & YVSR1040V were on there too) any way the water will not stop filling no matter what...

as to the filling issue this would either be the pressure switch or the hose that goes to the pressure switch to the tub has come off if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank this opinion it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick
p.s the starts agititating is normal when the lid closes it is engaging the lid switch

Series 70 washer will not aggitate, spin or drain

Even "empty" - there is still water in the tub to keep the seals moist.

Let it thaw completely - or put some hot water in the tub to thaw.

You may already have damaged the coupling/drive belt if it was frozen.
