Question and Answers

Q:

How do you check the water pump for something lodged in it?

A:

First disconnect electrical power to the washer. Remove the 2 screws that go down at a 45 degree angle into the top panel located along the bottom of each console end cap. Pull forward while lifting & flip the console back & up. Unplug the 3 wire connector going down through the top panel to the lid switch. Use a flat blade screwdriver to release the large spring clamps that hold the cabinet to the rear panel. Place the tip of the blade in the slot & pry up towards you. You will now be able to slide the complete cabinet off the frame of the washer. You will see the water pump secured to the front of the motor. Release the clamps & pull the pump off the motor shaft, remove the hoses & now you can inspect the pump. Be sure the base tabs are positioned in the cabinet cut out slots when you slide the cabinet back to secure it in position.

A:

to go a bit more.. keep in mind that even if the tub is empty there is still water in the pump and hoses. have a small bucket or pot ready. I'd also remove the clips from the motor and check the coupling for wear or cracks they fail often and your already that far into it. to clear up what is needed to remove the springs your going to take the screw drive(flat) place it in the front of the clip where theres a small bend in the clip and push screwdriver towards back of unit the clip will pop out to put back in just push down with handuntill clicks back in. the motor maybe a pain to re align if removed because the gromets always fall out put them i first and only put the rubber from coupling 1/2 way on this will help you to align the coupling better.

Q:

Why is my washer filling with water all by itself and not doing anything else?

A:

It sounds like you may still have something stuck in the pump. This could explain the buzzing for 10 seconds and then silence. The motor may be bound up on something that is stuck in the pump.

As for the washer filling on its own, this would indicate a separate failure. A failed water valve could be causing this type of problem except that it would continue filling until the washer overflowed. If the motor and pump are not working, you will probably have to bail out the water or gravity drain it. Empty the washer and unplug it. Turn off the water supply and see if the washer fills with water. If it does, this would indicate a siphoning problem through the drain hose. If it doesn't, leave it unplugged and turn the water supply back on.

If it fills with water, then your fill valves will need to be replaced. If you need more help with these washer problems, resubmit your question with additional details
