When it pumps out, does the water pump out with force? These machines had an issue with the drain pumps and a new design was made for them. Has it had the new style pump installed?
Thank you! You have gotten some good service from that machine!
Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!
Unfortunately, the new pump is showing as no longer available and none of the 5 major suppliers have any old stock. So, you may have to modify the old pump. If you lean the machine back against the wall and remove the lower access panel (screws along the edges), the pump is in the right rear corner (facing the front of the machine). The pump will come off the motor after the two metal clips are removed. In the center of the pump is a plastic coupler that has splines that mesh with splines on the motor shaft. That is where the trouble lies, the plastic splines wear and water is not pumped out as quickly as it should be. You can use an epoxy like JB Weld to essentially glue the pump to the motor shaft and should have no more issues with it. Just be sure to allow the epoxy to set for 24 hours before using.
Please let me know if you have additional questions or need clarification. There is no additional charge for any follow up help!

If none of the buttons are operable at that point, it is probably an issue with the touch pad.
Turn off the power to the appliance. Use a hair dryer to heat the panel up until very warm while rubbing firmly over each of the buttons. Often times, this will restore operation. Be sure to get the panel very warm but not hot enough to damage the plastic. Any change?
Given the age of the machine, I would seriously considering replacing it.
Sounds good, keep me posted. Unfortunately, the expected life of today's appliances is less than 10 years!
Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open. Is there anything else I can help you with?
