Hello. I'm a new guy with a problem.

I have a Whirlpool GHW9200LW Duet front loading washer, which has been great until yesterday (well over a year). It was in the middle of a normal wash cycle when the house lost power for a few minutes (not unusual). Now, the washer won't spin the drum. It emits a hum as though it's trying to spin, but nothing happens. Eventually a "02 F" display appears and the washer beeps slowly. The drum will freely rotate by hand. There is about 2 inches of water in the bottom of the drum which won't drain out.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. ;)

Thanks SARM (EGMoA). Tried those. Looks like a pump. As far as I can tell the pump's not coming on at all I'm a software guy, so pump replacement is above my pay grade. Know any good repair guys in the north Atlanta area?

btw, this is an excellent resource. I work at a consuling engineering firm and we've been interested in this type of online consulting. If we could find a way to wring the money out of it... ;)

Ok, but you'd be throwing money away. Replacing the pump on this washer is about a mug and half on the SUDS-o-meter.

Really easy? It's not that I'm without mechanical skills (I just detail stripped my 1911), but I've never taken that 200 pound beast apart.
