clothes soaking after wash

Page 2 of 2  


Agree, that would seem to be the problem. Have you checked to see if it spins fast between wash and rinse? That would help narrow it down between control coming from the timer or brains as opposed to something else.

That seems possible.

If the door locked light turns on during the regular cycle, I doubt very much that is the problem. It seems unlikely it would indicate locked during the rest of the cycles and only go open during the spin cycle.

Given that it doesn't spin, I doubt that is the problem. But I would have checked that first, as it's easy to do. IF it has a a drain filter, make sure it's clean. I'd reroute the drain somehow temporarily, even if it;s to a couple of 5 gal buckets, so you can keep an eye on it. IF this is one of the newer front loaders, they don't use much water. Also, seems unlikely it could be a drain issue because I would think if it couldn't drain, you'd have other symptoms, like soapy clothes.

I suspect the pump. Run a load without clothes and watch the drain pipe flow. That should provide another clue. If the replacement did not work, all you are out is the $40, not bad! But if your repair worked, you're back in business and saved some money on a replacement.

Oil coming out. And if it does, get a bucket, it's worth $40 a barrel.

Mine started this today different model So may not apply to yours First thing to check is the coin sump A rubber boot just before the pump It will not go into spin if any water is left easy fix if thats it I did find some coins but no go BUT I discovered technicians packet inside the machine by the pump run a diagnostic check that came up with door lock Switch even tho the door lock light is lit In diagnostic mode you can run a spin with out the door lock And it worked but if lock isn't working, machine will not spin in regular mode even with the lite lit and locked not enough voltage to the control board during spin cycle So I have a door lock on the way and use diagnostic test spin till it gets here Spud
