Why won't my washer drain and then spin.

hi

Washer is full of water and top panel controls will turn on and off to add more water but washer won't drain or spin.

So there is power. And I checked to see if the exit tube was blocked but I was able to drain the washer tub simply by using gravity...thus draining the water into a bucket. So the tube is not blocked.

Is it a control dial problem, a water level sensor issue, a pump problem or who knows what?

Chosen Solution

Cause 1

Drain Pump

Sometimes, small objects or articles of clothing can get caught in the drain pump. To determine if anything is blocking the drain pump, remove the drain pump and check the pump for obstructions. If the drain pump is clear of obstructions, but is still noisy during the drain cycle, replace the drain pump.

Cause 2

Clogged Pump or Hose

Sometimes, socks and other small articles of clothing can get into the drain system and clog the pump hose or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump and check for any obstructions.

Cause 3

Lid Switch Assembly

The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. If the lid switch assembly fails, the washer will not drain. To determine if the lid switch assembly is defective, use a multimeter to test each of the lid switches for continuity. If a lid switch does not have continuity, replace it.
