Question about Washing Machines
The tub fills with water but won't spin. I then have to manually turn the knob to rinse afterwhich it will drain but still not spin.
I see water around the bottom outside of my whirl pool heavy duty spuer capacity washing machine...in the spinning cycle it appears to be going out the drain hose and drainning ok???

I just took the pump off the bottom of the motor. The pump is at the bottom of the machine. If you're handy, lay the machine on its back and remove the pump as follows: it is held by two clips that come right off, the pump is then connected to two hoses the one from the tub and the one to the drain, squeeze the hose clips with pliers move the clips up the hose off the pump, grab the hose ends and work them off the pump one at a time, they can be a bit stiff, don;t break the hoses or you'll have to replace that too. We are on our way to find a new pump and see if that solves the problem. The pump appears to have a crack in a worn out place. I believe this will solve the problem, it probably has no pressure with the worn place to pump the water out fast enough. I would like to know iof there is a filter to clean out that could be a problem too..
