My fiance's grandmother's washing machine will pump water into the tub, but not out. I do not hear the motor engage in any cycle. I think she needs a new drive motor. Does that sound right to you? I replaced the coupling about a year ago and it had been fine ever since, until yesterday. Any help?

Re: Whirlpool Washing machine top load
It sounds like ti could be the lid switch. Some whirlpool models will fill with the lid open. even before cheking the switch for continuity open and close the lid and listen for the "click". Ifyou hear the click then check the switch for continuity.

If you let the tub fill, then put the pillows in, you may have caused the water level to overflow the outer tub somewhat. If you didn't smell smoke or hear any frying sounds, the motor is probably ok. Does the washer seem to operating normally?
