As you mention not hearing a humming noise usually means there is no power to the motor assembly. A very common cause of this is a defective lid switch.

Open the machines lid or door press the striker pad and listen for a clicking sound. Or open and close the lid/door gently listening for the same sound, the switch to engage.

You'll probably find thats your problem.

Take care

Washes then does not empty and spin


It has to drain first before it can spin. Put it on final spin & press start. If you can hear a humming noise that will be the drain pump trying to go. It will have a blockage.

It fills up..washes..but wont drain or spin out..


I had the same problem. Checked the pump and it ran fine. Took off the door locking mechanism and put 120 ohms into the wax motor part and it tested fine too. I read about problems with that wax motor so I replaced the complete door switch today for $71.00 and the washer runs perfectly now. If it won't spin or even fully drain I suggest replacing the door switch.

Washes but dosen't drain


you having an issue withthe lid switch not activating, either a bad lid switch, or the "arm that hits it simply not making connection and needs adjusting.. chances are you cant hear a "clicking" noise when the lid is lifted and lowered... if this is the case its a lid switch issue... for safety reasons, the machine is not recognising the door closed so wont enter a spin cycle. will hawever wash and fill

Check the lid switch. Some units use a safety lock out. If it is not working then the unit will not drain or spin.

Fills washes rinses but wont spin properly or empty out washer, ends cycle half done, wont pump water out or spin out. i can hear the machine hum while trying to do so. Please any ideas. THanks


its likely the pump is blocked (hence the humming) with a coin or some foreign object. To check, lower the outlet hose to ground level to allow the water to empty. Tip machine back & lean against a wall, remove the pump & remove object if there is one! Reassemble & try machine again
