Question about Washing Machines
After the washing machine got done the cloths were still in need of rinsing. Set the dial back to rinse and pulled it out to start it. There is a loud clicking noise coming from underneath and the machine will not start. I hear the motor, and also it starts to drain water for a split second once you turn it on. But otherwise it is just making a loud clicking noise and doing nothing.
The problem most likely is something stuck in the water port of the drain pump. My machiine would not empty once and I found a 12 penny nail that had made its way from the drum though the drain line to the the pump, where it was wedged against the impellers that spins to draw out the water through the pump. The pump is located in the front right bottom of the machine and accessible by reoving the lower front panel, It is held in place by 4 small screws and is connected to the drain lines. Disconnect the plug for the outlet, then disconnect the power connection from the pump. Disconnect the drainlines after removing as much water possible from the drum as the water will come out of these liines when you remove them. Remove the pump, open the cover to see the impeller and hopefully the bobby pin, nail, screw, or whatever else is stuck there will be visible and easily removed. Put the pump cover back on, replace the drain lines and screws, and reconnect the power connection to the pump. Then do a better job checking your pockets.

My washing machine works fine until it gets to the spin cycle. The it makes this clicking sound and makes the power in house dim and come back on several times. I think it might be in the dial... But have no clue about this... It is a Kenmore top loader. I can puch knob in and pull it back out then it works fine spining. But once it stops and starts rinsing again and goes to spin out again it does it again.

The problem is that the sump is full of penneys and nails and screws etc. left in posckets. Pull down the flap on the front lower section of the machine, put down a towel and unscrew the filter. Water will run out but only a small amount, approx a cup or two. You will more than likely find it full of debris like nails and change. Stick you fingers in and claar around the inside and put the filter back in place. This should sort the problem

This might not solve the problem, but I had a banging, clanging, clicking sound when the machine tried to agitate or spin, and discovered that the nuts attaching the tumbler to spinner support were loose. It was a simple fix. I just unscrewed the back blades inside the tumbler, took them off, tightened the nuts, and replaced the blades. All the work was done from inside the tumbler. There was no need to take the machine apart to get to the insides. Prem

Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Good luck. Plug off the wall first.
