My drain pump was clogged with coins. The unit will not drain or go into the spin cycle. After I manually drain the unit, it will not go into the spin cycle. Question is, when drum has water and not draining, will the remaining cycles freeze and not perform when directed by control knob?
I do not want to replace pump and then find out control module is bad.
Answer Hello Robert,
If the pressure switch sees water is still in the tub the unit will not perform any actions except agitate or drain. For this reason, you should open the main top and find the pressure switch. Remove the rubber hose from it and blow back into the tub through the hose. This basically clears the hose if it is clogged with lint and debris. Since you found debris in the drain pump 00436440, it has most likely failed and will require replacement. If you want to verify the pump has failed, open the unit and remove the wires to the pump and put your test meter on these two wires. If 120Vac is there when the unit is plugged in and put into spin, the pump has indeed failed. If no voltage is present in the spin cycle, the harness 00610156 or the control 00670509 is at fault.
