How to fix a Whirlpool Cabrio / Kenmore Oasis / Maytag Bravo washer that partially fills and pumps out in an endless loop

Samurai Appliance Repair Man


Pull the basket out and check for 2 thingss...

1) any items caught under the basket or between the basket and outer tub.

2) check the shaft abouve the tub seal for rust or build-up of soap/gunk.

If the shaft is rusted, sand it off and coat shaft with thin layer of grease. Put it back together and give it a try.
