Good afternoon, first is the door lock light on the control panel lit ? 2nd are you sure this is draining completely ? spin the drum by hand do you hear any water sloshing below the drum ?
The light stays on and door locked. The only water is what is still soaked. I just verified. So it has a humming sound while it's draining and will spin a couple times. Then nothing, you can hear the timer. As soon as it gets to the rinse cycle it will refill and then move the clothes back and forth.
Yikes. Ok well one thing though... I got this machine from my boss. He and his wife were using it and it worked. They decided they wanted to get a matching set so they put this in the garage. So it was working, got moved to the garage for a couple years, then to my house. Is there something else this could be? Could it be an issue with the knob/dial? The knob/dial itself looked like it had been bumped while in the garage or something. It was not flat on the machine but crooked. So it rubbed when trying to turn it. I saw online somewhere else that the person had the same issue and he fixed the know which had gotten out of sync or something.
Its possible the shaft part is bent. And no we just got it home the other day. So no it hasn't worked since we moved it here.
Just cold water.
Yeah. It goes through all cycles but on the spin it never comes to a full spin. Turns a few times, pauses, turns a few times, and repeats for the spin cycle.
I found a metal pin thing inside of the washer how can I send you a picture of it? There are no identifying marks except what looks like a 33.
It was in the bottom by the motor and pump. It looks similar to the type of part to a bike pump you put on to fill up a basketball. That's the only way I can think of describing it without sending a picture.
okay , watch this video and it shows you haow to upload a picture to just answer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESFMEtpDkow click that blue link
Here you go. The inside of this machine was pretty immaculate for being as old as it is. This was the only thing beside a LITTLE dust.
I don't believe that came from the machine, I've looked at every part in this machine and didn't see anything that looked like that and in all the years I've worked on these I've never seen that. I have to stay with my original diagnoses. wish I had an easy fix for you, sorry, have a great night, Bryan
