My washer will fill up but it isnt stopping. It'll fill until it overflows. Also, it won't agitate or spin or drain the water out. It just hums. When I set the cycle to spin and give the coupler a little push, it takes right off and acts normal. What could this be from?
Answer Hello Tyler,
If you unplug the unit while it is filling and the water keeps filling, the water valve has failed. If the water stops when the unit is unplugged, the pressure switch and hose should be checked. If the unit will not spin the body should be removed, the lid switch bypassed, the clips removed that secure the pump to the front of the motor and slip the pump off of the motor. Now try the spin again. If it works, there is debris in the pump or it has failed. If this locates no problems, the inner tub should be pulled and check the drive block for damage and make sure there are no items of clothing between the tubs. If nothing shows up there, the gearcase will need to be pulled and the problem will either be in the brakes, clutch, or internal to the gearcase.
