When I cleaned out the trap, about a half gallon of water ran out. seams to be draining. won't spin just hums
yes air passes freely
there is no spin cycle, only a rinse/spin. it spins great empty.
ok, the wife put 4 small towels into the washer, now it will not spin again
Wife said it was quiet when empty. Wife moved the towels around and now it is working. It gets out of balance very often and u got stop it and move the clothes around.
update, as it's spinning and the timer clock is counting down, in stead of going from 6 to 5 minutes, it jumps to 9 minutes. it's been doing the timer jump game for a long time, normally 2 or 3 times. now it's doing it 5-7 times. the towels came out damp, not soaked?
It ended up spinning with the towels in it. I tried to do a load and it will fill up and spin a little but won't spin while the water is draining like it usually does. I didn't see any soap in it either
It does seem to move to the sides more than it used to
Sorry I can only tell where one tub is. I don't hear any knocking when I move it
Ok I will have my husband check that
Ok we will. Thanks!
the shocks all look good, attacking points look good. Do you still feel that it could be the motor? I pulled the lid off of the washer, don't see anything broke. I spun the drum by hand, turns smooth, can hear a little noisewhen turning by hand. All appears to be normal.
Kelly, I replaced the motor, the belt is tight. it apears that the tub is taking on a lot more water than normal and it still will not spin. It makes a humming noise. I don't think it's the motor humming. Start from scratch, walk up to the washer, open door and fill with clothes, make the selection, close the door hit start. The basket will move right to left 3 or 4 times as normal. It fills with water, a lot of water. Basket no move, water drains and there is a lot of noise, load humming. Ideas?
The new pressure switch came today, I installed it. Blew through the hose. Same issue, the washer still doesn't work.
Kelly, Im not home every day do to my job. I have bought 2 new motors and 2 new pressure switches. This thing still does not work. It makes a humming noise, fills way up and drians. it only spins when I first turn it on and select. It spins one way then the other. The hose is no plugged up. It makes a clicking noise like solinoids activating.
yes I can. why does it still not spin?
the new switch is differant from the old one. paper claims it is a updated version. the wiring plugs in differant, I followed the instruction sheet. even had a picture to go by, lol. I cant believe I'd get 2 bad new switches.
It will be a couple hours before I can do that.
ok with it on or off the blue wire has 51.6 volts. start the rinse cycle and it drops .5 and bonces between 3v to -.005
The rubber vacuum hose from the pressure switch had a wear spot on it up under the drum. I replaced the hose, problem solved. Washer works again. 35 cents worth of vacuum tubing, lol.
