Washer quit working in middle of cycle, won't even come on

I went to wash a comforter that my dog had thrown up on, its big but I've washed it in my washer before...I go in to check because the washer didn;t sound like it was on. It wasn't. Completely off. Pulled comforter out and its soaked...it didn't finish the wash cycle, and theres water pooled in the washer. Won't come on at all, unplugged it, plugged back in...it will not not not come on at all!!!

Look under the washer. Is there a little pile of black rubber shavings? With the heavy load, you may have broken the basket coupler between the motor and the drum. Try turning off the selector, and move it one click at a time towards the end of the cycle and turning back on. Hopefully it will drain for you. If the coupler is the problem it is inexpensive to fix. Some also call this part the "clutch". It kind of looks like a hockey puck with six holes in it... three for the motor, three for the clothes drum.washer quit working in middle of cycle, won't  - s-l225.jpg I attached pictures of a couple types. This part is a common problem when you put a heavy load in, because the rubber takes more stress.

SOURCE: Washer won't drain and clothes stay soaked

Can you give me a model and brand name. Does the washer drain at any time during the wash cycle?
Will it go into a spin at all in any setting? heavy duty, normal and delicate cycle? is water not draining?

SOURCE: Won't spin after wash cycle or rinse cycle

CHECK THE FOLLOWING---


1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Hello, welcome to FixYa

It sounds like the unit is detecting an unlocked door, loose wire, bad reed switch etc. hence the control will not initiate a hi-speed spin.

I know most folks will rule out the lock initially because the unit does indeed "lock", however, the lock on these machines are a two part device, a set of contacts to lock and a secondary contact to activate hi-speed spin, i.e.

macmarkus_339.jpg
If it does indeed drain fine, then here's the next place I'd direct you to investigate.

**Unplug the unit from the wall first...safety first**


It will require you to visually inspect the control board, thus needing to remove the top panel by way of taking out the screws at the back and sliding the panel back and up.

What to look for specifically is the wires with the green connector fastened to the board securely...I've seen a few vibrate loose thus preventing the unit from spinning, i.e.

macmarkus_340.jpg
If loose, push it all the way in until it cannot be pulled out with a slight tug ( there are clasp's on the connector but I suspect sometimes they aren't secure when leaving the factory...just my suspicion )


If these things can be ruled out, then it is quite likely the door switch (95% of the time), so here's how to change/access the latch assembly...There should be a tech sheet underneath the tub assembly behind the access panel for test procedure of the switch.

**The door latch is likely the single most common fault (which prevent's any spin, and consequently drenching wet clothing at the end of the cycle) with the frigidaire/electrolux built washer's, ASIDE FROM PUMPS BEING OBSTRUCTED.**

You should be able to purchase one at most local brick & mortar stores or on-line part's depot's such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclininc.com" to name a couple. They usually sell for about $50 or so, part # 1531974 ( # at repairclinic.com ) and are relatively easy to replace.

As for replacing said switch, There are a couple ways to access it, through the top and squeezing your arm down the front or the way I prefer, remove the front bellows spring/retainer.

1) **UNPLUG THE WASHER FROM THE WALL OR TURN OFF THE BREAKER.**

2) Remove the spring, get it started where the spring is located with a small screwdriver. Once you`ve got the spring/retainer off ( it comes off and on pretty easy by hand ) pull the gasket/bellows back away from the cabinet.

3) Undo the two screws holding the switch to the cabinet, pull the switch out ( there is just enough slack in the wires so don`t pull too hard ) and swap the wires from the old assembly to the new one and you`re in business.

4) To put it back together, just reverse the removal procedure. The trickiest part is the retainer. Rap the retainer around the boot leaving the spring for the last...and make sure the spring is located at the 6 o`clock position...usually. Just wherever it was initially.

Let me know if you need further assistance going forward or if my instructions are not clear.


Thank's again for visiting FixYa today. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: I washed a load with extra rinse & stain clean

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It is possible that there is a drainage problem.

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

How big should my dog's house be?


The dog house should be big enough so your dog is able to move around comfortably in it and stretch fully while lying down. On the other hand, they shouldn't be too big because then the dog will feel lonely.

What's the cause of my washer's agitation and noise problem?


Possibly a bad basket drive. Or something is wrapped around the shaft under the tub or something is in the pump.

I have a Brother LS-1717 sewing machine and my thread keeps breaking. We've oiled it but it hasn't acted right for years, it hasn't seemed to matter what the settings are on or what...


here are somethings to try,
1. change the needle--flat side goes to the back of the machine
2. check the tension see if it's too tight,,usually 4 to 5 is good
3. rethread the machine top thread & bobbin area
4. check to see if there are any burrs on the needle plate where the feed dogs are (teeth area)
5. you said that you made a comforter for your husband using thick fabric,,some sewing machine are not good at sewing comforters & other heavy fabric,, it's possible that the machine is out of time, which means it will not sew good & mess up,, which means it needs to be serviced by a repair shop technican to see if it is out of time.

Washing clothes and machine cut off..no lights and can't open door.


First check your circuit breaker in your circuit panel box to see if it is thrown. It will not be in the ON position if thrown. It will be approximately in the middle. If thrown, turn to off and then turn it on. If it throws again, you have an electrical problem either with your washer or the circuit.

Agitator moving just a little.


If it is a Whirlpool or Kenmore make washer you probably stripped the "dog ears" in the agitator. They give you the duel agitation that makes your clothes cycle from top to bottom of the machine. Should only rin you around $8.00 or so. Hope that helps.

Washing down comforter


Hi,
It really depends on how big the drum is. It needs room to wash properly, so if there is no room - I would say it's too big.

Try your local laudarette - they have industrial machines that are designed for large items, so to save yourself a repair bill - just use them.
