DIY washer repair
If your front-load or top-load washing machine won't fill, drain, spin or start, let Sears PartsDirect help with the information you need to fix it yourself. Some washers display an error code when a part breaks. Look up your machine's error code on our washer error code charts to get troubleshooting tips and find out which part to replace. We'll also show you how to read the error codes on a common top-load washer in this How to Display Error Codes on Vertical Modular Washers (VMWs) video.
Our troubleshooting videos and articles can help you diagnose the cause of common problems, including a top-load washer that won't drain or spin or a top-load washer that won't fill. If you hear coins or other items rattling in the drain pump of your front-load washer, you can learn how to clean out the drain pump filter and stop the rattling that happens when the washer drains.
Once you find out what's broken, check out our step-by-step washer repair guides to see how to replace the part. To find the owner’s manual or a complete list of replacement parts for your washer, search for your model number. Before you know it, you'll be back doing the one thing we can't help you with—actually washing your laundry!
