My washer does not final spin if heavy load (fuzzy blanket that seems like a sponge). I replaced the pump thinking that was the problem, but same behavior. Sometimes final spin, sometimes not. Any ideas?
Answer Hello Karen,
You will want to check to make sure that your pressure switch hose is not clogged or kinked. Pull the hose from the lower tub to make sure that there is not debris in the hose that would cause not to drain properly. Also check drain to make sure that there is nothing clogged in drain or drain pump. The Fuzzy blankets can cause heavy lint to get into the drain system and cause clogging.
I replaced my control assembly because a tech diagnosed the washer not agitating or spinning as a problem with the control assembly. After replacing the control panel the washer still does not agitate or spin. The timer otherwise moves through the cycle fine. The door lock lights and seems to work. The pump makes a loud grinding noise but is clear with no debris and the fins are good. It also drains very well. The washer is a front load. Before I plunk any more money into it, could the washers pump cause it not to agitate or spin? Any other suggestions?
Answer Hello Carrie,
The drain pump would not cause the unit to not agitate or spin. If it was a spin only issue that could be the case. Where you will want to look it at the spin control 134149220 or the motor 134869400. Check your wiring between the main control and the speed control for broken loose or corroded wiring. Also check between speed control and motor for the same. If this checks good then you can check the resistance on the motor. Disconnect plug on the drive motor and measure betwen pins 4 & 5 in the motor. If the meter reads between 105 & 130 ohms then motor is good. Outside of these readings the motor is bad and needs to be replaced. Disconnect the plug from motor and measure between 1 & 2, 1 & 3, and 2 & 3. This is measing the windings on the motor. All windings should be between 4 and 6 ohms. If the readings are correct then you want to replace the control board.
Where exactly is the pump located?
Answer Hello Jacob. The pump is located in the bottom of the cabinet under the tub on the right side.
My washing machine goes through the cycles, rinses, (drains) but on the final spin, it wont drain.
Answer Hello Chuck,
You should check the hose 131784700 between the outer tub and the drain pump. Foreign objects and debris will accumulate in there and I have seen good drain pumps replaced and the problem be in here. If it won't drain at the end of the cycle, it isn't draining during the cycle. If you check and it actually is, the problem is in the timer 137394200.
On the other hand, I could be misunderstanding your terminology. Is it draining at the end of the cycle but not spinning the water from the load? If this is the case, you could have a bad speed control assembly 134149220.
I need the rubber check valve for the water pump.
Answer Hello James,
I'm sorry but the check valve isn't available by itself. It is only available with the pump assembly 137108000.
Pump has a impeller with broken fin. Can I replace the impeller? Where do I find a replacement impeller?
Answer Hello Tim! Unfortunately, the manufacture does not offer the impeller separate from the pump 137108000. Sorry about that!
