LTF530FSO starts final spin but stops clothes wet water in drum

7 posts in this topic

This is a front loading washer I bought after Katrina. CLothes remain wet and sudsy, water remains in washer. Door lock works, door lock light works and it starts a final spin but stops and hums for awhile then shuts off.

I have used a shop vac to vacuum out the water from the drain hose. Repeatedly. I have used it to vacuum out the drain line. I have removed the mixing valve and cleaned it out pretty well. I do not see a lint filter besides that inside the door boot.

I would love to be able to fix this without any huge expense.

Thanks!

Now, how skilled does a person need to be to fix this?

AND, can you tell me what capacity washer this is? I am surprised that a washer breaks down after just four years. Maybe I need to go to a bigger one? Am I overworking this one?

Is it true that you have to buy a stacking set and I cannot just replace the washer?

Thanks!

Before replacing check pump for foreign objects such as coins baby socks anything that can block the impeller from moving or slow it down. Be sure to unplug it or kill power to it before removing pump.
