Could be just a faulty capacitor that helps the motor to start. You will find this next to the motor if you remove the top cover.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
To test the pump see near the end ------->

Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)
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!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.


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. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

We just put a drain pump on a samsung top loader and since then it drains and spins but the clothes are stuck to the sides but are still wet.

When a washer is doing it's final spin, there is a short period when water is sprayed into the tub.
It sounds like your washer is spraying water into the tub, during its final spin, for a much longer time than usual

Hello I have a Bosch dishwasher model no:

Hello Zub,

It's most likely a fault with the control module or the drain pump. Please follow these instructions to detemine the likely cause of the fault and, therefore, what to do next:

1. Turn the programme selector to any wash cycle but don't press start.
2. Open the door and pull out the lower rack
3. If the washer is dry, pour roughly a pint of water into the sump in the bottom of the washer
4. Locate the float (the mushroom) and lift it . . .

When the float is fully lifted (about 3/4 of an inch) the drain pump should start and drain any water from the washer. This activates the anti-flood safety feature and the pump should continue to run as long as the float is lifted. The power supply to the drain pump bypasses the controller so this is the best way to determine if the drain pump is faulty.

If the water drains when you lift the float . . .

The drain pump is working but it's not receiving the signal to start from the controller during a wash cycle. It may be a wiring problem, but more likely that your control module will likely need to be repaired or replaced. These cost about £100 - if you replace it yourself.

If you can hear the pump humming but water does not drain when you lift the float . . .

There may be a blockage somewhere or the pump impeller may have jammed or broken away from the driveshaft. Try lifting and dropping the float rapidly about 10-20 times. Repeated stop/start signals to the pump motor can free a stuck impeller.

If nothing happens when you lift the float . . .

There is either no power to the pump motor or, more likely, the pump motor has failed. You will need to test the motor to determine whether or not it needs to be replaced. You will need a Torx T20 screwdriver or screwdriver bit to remove the kickplate under the door and an ohm / multi-meter to test the motor.

The drain pump motor should give a resistance reading of between 110 and 260 ohms across the live/hot and neutral/common terminals if the motor is good. In most cases, the reading is about 160-170 ohms.

I'd suggest testing the drain pump using the float as detailed above, then let me know the results. I'm happy to provide further assistance once the likely cause of the fault has been determined.

Hope this helps.

I have a kenmore 80 series topload washer. It washes the clothes just fine fills and drains just fine, but it has a leak. I looked under the machine and found nothing wet. Checked all the lines still...

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Check the areas for the motor and pump and the Agitator Basket and Tub.

If you've checked the hoses to and from the pump the problem points to either the pump itself or to the Centerpost gasket.

Neither of these is too difficult to replace, the Gasket requires removing most parts of the washer although the pump is an easy replacement.

How can we troubleshhot a Maytag toploader that

You probably have something stuck in the drain pump. You will have to remove the hoses from the pump to extract it.
I can not be more help without a model number. Maytag builds several styles of top load washers. They all access differently.

Ultimate Care II toploading washer doesn't empty or spin after ag

Hello, I can help.

If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.
