Will not fill with water

  • Customer: Kenneth from Oxford IN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins

The unit would not fill with water. My wife had been complaining that the tub had not been filling completely before the filling completely failed. If I switched the water level to another setting and then back, it would run fine for just one cycle. That's why I suspected the water level pressure switch. It was a very simply switch out, requiring just a philips screwdriver and popping the control panel on the top open (thankfully not messing with the main cabinet). It was replaced and reassembled within just minutes!

followed repair instruction,( bought on line and down loaded ) some instructions were unclear but when you have the machine apart its obvious. your parts breakdown helped more than the instructions once the cabinet was opened.

Looked on line at Parts Select, and noted there was 66% chance that problem was in lid switch. Stuck screw driver in slot under lid, pushed on switch and made washer work, verifying that problem was likely in switch. Ordered part. Disconnected washer from electric/water. Removed screws on back and sides of panel; lifted lid and cover; replaced switch; reinstalled cover. Reconnected to elec/water. Worked. No problema.

Hanger on motor broke and destroyed the coupling

Turned machine on it’s back after removing the hose that goes to the drain, removed the bottom dust guard, I removed the hoses (take a picture before removing things so you know how to orient them when putting it back together) and drained the water first but this is not necessary (there are YouTube videos where they suggest removing the outer case, unclipping the pump and then removing the motor. This would be optimal as you don't need to deal with the water running out of the washer when you remove the hoses). Removed the 4 electrical connectors (multi-plug, 1 x two prong plug and 2 capacitor connector plugs) One of the motor hangers were broken on my machine, I removed the other one and then slipped the motor out. Removed the broken hanger and securing screws and the old rubber grommets, slipped the coupling out (had to leverage out with a large flat screwdriver). Installed new coupling and rubber on the gearbox side, 4 grommets on the motor and the other coupling on the motor. Inserted the hangers on the gearbox side and then mounted the motor. (it is easier if you turn the washer on its back so the drum moves down and gives you more room to drop the motor in from the top), clipped the motor hangers on and fastened the two metal screws, mounted the pump and hoses and reinstalled the dust guard. Turned it right side up and tested before dragging it back into the laundry. Washing again like it did when first bought it in 1998. I would recommend that when a coupling brakes, replace it as well as the hangers and grommets to make sure it has no room for play. Mine broke way too quick as I did the last coupling about a year ago, problem I think was that I had the wrong grommets causing excessive vibration and wear.

Basin fills with water, tub doesn't spin, nor does pump engage

  • Customer: Kent from Tallahassee FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy

The symptoms gave every indication that power wasn't getting to the washer, other than to the control panel. By reaching over the tub I could feel the switch and push it down. It didn't feel right. No "click" and the lever seemed to have too much travel. The unit was in a rental property and was full of water and tenant clothing. Taking the washer apart to further diagnose the problem had drawbacks so I ordered the switch with high confidence that that was the failed part. The repair was simple. Remove the screws that hold down the control panel and that hold the case to the frame. Rock the case forward and the switch is easily accessible.

The washer filled with water and then stopped

We began by tracing the original lid switch wires to the front dial in the top cabinet. Once the screws to the top cabinet were removed, we were able to trace the wires and find out how the other end fit in. Through trial and error, we found out that the front of the washer could be pulled forward and lowered. We were then able to access, remove and replace the entire assembly.
