Washer fills with water but agitation does not start-a continuous groaning sound is heard ; sounds as if it is stuck/something is holding it back.What may be the cause? how can it be fixed?
Plug off the wall, etc. Remove the rear cover. There is a thin tube coming from the control panel area to the base where the water exits, this should not be blocked, remove from top and blow to check, refit. Next clean out your outlet filter, it could be clogged, refit. This tube controls the water level. Do not overload your machine, the manual will tell you the max load. Check to see if any hose has come loose from behind the machine; look inside from behind.
