The water is draining out of the tub as it is filling up and seems to be flowing through the drain. Does the drain tube need to be elevated to prevent the water from free flowing from the washer tub, or is the drain valve defective?
Answer Hello Brian,
The Drain does have to be elevated almost to the top back of unit. If the drain is not elevated or is shoved too far down into drain pipe it will cause a siphoning effect. Water will just free flow through the unit.
My washing machine still works but it ends up with a tub full of water, but the timer cycles around to off. I can hear it pump water out, spin, and refill. Sometimes I can switch to rinse and it cycles ok to the end, sometimes when it's done it's full of water.
Answer Hello Deana,
It sounds like the drain pump may be your issue as long as you have checked to insure there is no lint and foreign object build-up in the hose before the pump. This also includes where the tub to pump drain hose leaves the tub because I have seen a wash cloth or childs' underwear in this area causing a similar complaint. As long as it's clear and the unit doesn't make a loud roar during the spin cycle, the drain pump 35-6465 should take care of this problem.
Hi, My washer first stopped spinning during all cycles except whites. About 1 month later, it now won't drain or spin in any cycles. I took the belt off and verified the motor spins when engaged in the spin cycle. With the belt still off, I turned the transmission drive pulley in the clockwise direction, which caused the agitator to move back and forth. Then I turned the transmission pulley in the opposite direction, the pulley did get harder to turn, and the tub did slowly spin, basically as I turned the pulley the tub made a rotation but kind of seemed tight (is it supposed to be?). I then rotated the pump and in either direction and it drags, makes a rubbing/grind sound. There was also a lot of belt dust around the pump pulley. Is my pump bad or my thrust bearings?
Answer Hello Mike. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the thrust bearing is releasing the brake and is working properly. I would suggest you replacing the pump 35-6465 and the belt 22003483 on the unit.
My washer makes a grinding / clicking sound. Could you please help me find out whats wrong? My washer is 11 years old.
Answer Mr. Hunt, You could have something ( needle,pin, paper clip) in the pump or a worn out thrust bearing assembly. Those are the two most common "noise " issues with that style unit. You would want to slide the unit away from the wall, remove the front panel, " Insert a flat bladed tool(putty knife) between the top panel and front panel approximately 4 inches in from the front corners, press in on the blade and lift up on the front corners, to disengage the spring clips. Once to top is up and braced, remove the two 5/16 in. screws holding the front panel to the cabinet cross brace, tilt the top of the front panel out until the alignment pins are cleared, the lift up on the front panel to remove. Raise and block up the front of the washer, and remove the belt, turn the pump drive pulley and feel for a smooth even rotation of the pulley shaft assembly. if there's a "ratchetting " or clicking feel when you turn it, theres something in the pump . If the pump is operational, remove the plastic cap off the center of the transmission pulley, remove the "C" clip and remove the cam and pulley assemblt from the shaft and check for distorted or damaged parts. Thanks and Good Luck.
