I am new to this website, but just went through a possible repair issue that we were able to resolve ourselves, and thought I would share!

Our washer is 5 years old. Today, it decided to stop at the point of draining and spinning, leaving the wet laundry and 5 gallons of water in the machine. We removed the water pump catch all trap near the front of the machine, drained the water and removed the laundry. (Yuck, and heavy!) There were only 4 coins in the pump trap, and very little lint, so we checked the hoses, put it back together, tried to run it empty and it did the same thing. The pump was not making it's normal noise. I called our local repair shop, and they said probably the pump was broken, and a new pump would be around 150.00, parts only. After draining the machine again, my husband removed the pump, handed it to me, and I noticed there was some lint inside the pump, right against the part that spins (forgive me for not knowing the part names!) that looks a little like a propeller. I got some hemostats and pulled out the obstruction, which was larger and much harder than expected, so much that it was stopping this propeller part to spin. We reinstalled the pump, ran an empty load, and HOORAY! That solved the problem! We discovered through all of this that if the water won't drain out of the tub, the washer will not spin, so if a pump is not working properly to drain the water, it will never spin. SOOOOO happy that we are not out about 300.00 for someone to come and repair our washer! So if you are having water pump issues, be sure to check inside your water pump after removal to make sure there is not just some obstruction stopping it from pumping!
