Washing machine repair:

Fix 90 percent of clothes washer breakdowns with these four easy fixes, including filling and draining problems, grinding noises and a failure to spin. You'll avoid the $80 - $150 service call.


Overview:

Time, tools and savings of washer repair.
Instead of searching the internet for “washer repair near me”, we’ll show you how to fix it yourself. Washing machine repair may sound complicated, but these machines are pretty simple inside. With a few basic tools and the steps we show here, you can solve most problems yourself—and save the cost of a service call ($80 to $150). We won’t cover every fix, but the repairs we show will correct about 90 percent of washer troubles, like Maytag washer repair or Kenmore washer repair.
These common washer repairs are a snap for the average do-it-yourselfer. You’ll need a socket set or nut drivers, screwdrivers and a flashlight. Repairs can take as little as an hour, but set aside a full morning to diagnose the trouble, get parts and complete the repair. To find parts, check the yellow pages under “Appliance Parts” or search online for “appliance parts” for Maytag washer troubleshooting or a washer repairman.


Figures A and B on the following pages show two common washer styles. The outer cabinet shown in Figure A (Whirlpool and some other brands) lifts off completely, giving you access to all the parts.

The washer shown in Figure B (Maytag and some other brands) has removable front and back panels.

Tip: Make sure your washer has power! Unplugged cords and tripped breakers are common causes of appliance “breakdowns.”.

Figure A: Whirlpool-Type Washer.
To remove the outer cabinet from this type of washer, first pull off the side trim pieces and remove the retaining screws. Flip the console up and release the spring clips with a screwdriver. Tilt the cabinet forward and lift the cabinet off.

Figure B: Maytag Washer Repair.
To remove the front panel on this type of washer, yank the bottom of the panel outward (you may have to first remove screws). Pull the panel down and out.

Caution.

Remove the pump.

Pop the snap retainers with a screwdriver and pull the pump off the motor shaft. Then disconnect the electrical connectors from the motor.

Replace the broken coupler.

Pop the bottom retainer off the motor and prop up the motor while you pop the top retainer (it’s heavy). Pry the broken coupler pieces off the motor and transmission. Tap the new coupler into place with a wooden block.
If you own a Whirlpool direct-drive washer (the water hoses attach to the left side when viewed from the back), you’ve probably got a broken coupler—a common failure caused by overloading the machine. It’s an easy and inexpensive fix, about $22.

Replace the pump.

Tip the machine back and support it with blocks. Remove the pump belt and the three pump retaining screws. Tilt the pump forward and lift it out of the opening.


When clothing or jewelry gets stuck in the hose to the pump or in the pump itself, the machine won’t drain and you might hear squealing or grinding or smell burning rubber. First remove the hose that goes from the tub to the pump (drain the water into a bowl) and check for stuck socks (yes, that’s where they go). Then run a coat hanger through the tube and pull out the stuck objects. Next check the pump for broken blades by shaking it.

Rotate the pump shaft to make sure it spins freely. Replace the pump if you find any damage ($55 for Maytag; $44 for Whirlpool). If you see any burned or melted sections on the belts, replace them ($35 a set). Maytag belts are specially designed, so don’t substitute an ordinary “V” belt.
Replace the water valve.
Remove the water valve bracket and mount the new valve. Transfer the electrical connectors to the Hot/Cold portions of the new valve. Then transfer the fill hose by compressing the spring clamp.
If your washing machine fills slowly or won’t fill at all, try cleaning the inlet screens on the water valve. To see how, type “inlet screen” in the search box above. If that doesn’t help, replace the entire water valve assembly ($35).
Replace the lid switch.
when your washer won’t spin, remove the lid switch on a Maytag-type washer by prying up the locking tab and sliding the switch forward as you try to figure out how to fix a washer that won’t spin. To install the new switch, just set it in the slot and pull it backward.
If the machine fills with water and then just sits there, suspect a broken lid switch. To test the switch, you’ll need a continuity tester (about $8) or a multimeter (about $15). If you don’t know how to use a multimeter, type “multimeter” in the search box above. Remove the wires connected to the switch and touch the tester’s probes to the switch’s connectors. As you open and close the lid, readings should alternate between continuity and no continuity. If not, replace the switch ($33).
To replace the switch on a Whirlpool-type washer (Figure A), just remove the two screws and screw in the new one. To get at the switch on a Maytag-type washer (Figure B), you’ll have to unscrew the access panel behind the console and replace the switch as shown here. Remember to raise the lid before you remove the old switch.
Have the necessary tools for this DIY washing machine repair project lined up before you start—you’ll save time and frustration.
You also might need a multimeter or continuity tester.

One day your washing machine was faithfully cleaning your clothes, and you barely even gave its operation a second thought. Then, any number of scenarios occurred. Perhaps the machine's basin fills with water but it will not drain. Or it drains but does not spin. Or the clothes are washed but are not very clean. In short, your washing machine does not work at its peak performance or has entirely stopped working.
For a machine that works so hard, it is hardly surprising that your clothes washer will occasionally break down or its performance will degrade to the point where the clothes are not getting sufficiently clean. Instead of calling in an expensive appliance technician, you can repair your washing machine by yourself. Most of these repairs require only simple tools and can be performed by homeowners who have only limited appliance repair skills.
Washing Machine Will Not Start.
It is the most basic of all washing machine breakdowns: the machine will not start. You have put the clothes in the washing machine basin, pressed the "ON" button or turned the dial, and then nothing happens.
Check the power cord behind the washer to make sure that it is plugged in. Due to washers' vigorous movements, especially when the load is imbalanced, machines may move. When a machine moves, it may inadvertently unplug the power cord. Cords that have been shortened with ties have no give. In this case, untie the cord to allow for more flexibility.
Is the circuit breaker to the washer flipped off? To reset a circuit breaker , find the electrical service panel . Locate the correct circuit breaker, flip it in the "OFF" direction, and then back to the "ON" position.
Your front loader washer's lid switch strike may be faulty. This is the area of the door frame that communicates to the machine that the door is properly closed and it is okay to begin filling with water. Close the lid and watch as the part on the door connects with the part on the machine. The top part should seat into the bottom part.
Your top loader washer's lid switch may be faulty. You can test this by setting the machine to "ON" and then pushing into the hole with the blunt end of a pen. If working correctly, the water should begin filling even though the lid is open.
02 of 07.
This may be one of the more frustrating clothes washer problems because you notice it only after running the clothes through a full cycle. After washing your clothing, you remove it and find your supposedly clean clothes covered in lint , hair, and other light debris.
Avoid overloading your washer . An overly full washer does not have enough space for the clean rinse water to pull out the detergent and debris. Consult your owner's manual for specific load maximums.
Use less detergent. Too much detergent can redeposit lint and other debris back on the clothing, rather than pulling it out.
Wash pet-related items such as blankets, cat and dog beds , and chew toys separately from the rest of the clothing. If the pet load is especially dirty, clean the washing machine tub by hand after the wash.
Washing Machine Will Not Spin.
With this all-too-common washing machine problem, the basin has drained of water but it refuses to spin. Spinning at a high rate of speed is the action that squeezes water out of the clothing so that it can be dried in the dryer.
Try to redistribute the clothing within the washing machine tub. When the washer is out of balance, it will automatically stop until you can get the clothing back in balance. After redistributing the clothing, close the lid again. The machine should start spinning automatically if the load distribution is correct. Loads that include high-absorption materials such as towels, sheets, and thick clothing like jeans and sweaters often become imbalanced.
Check the machine's level on the floor. An out-of-level machine will stop spinning; this action is programmed into your clothes washer for safety. Check the machine's level with a bubble level and bring the machine back to level by adjusting the legs.
Check the drainage and the drain hose. Small items may clog up the machine's drainage system. You may be able to check the washer's drain pump without removing it. Finally, the drainage hose that leads from the back of the machine to a drainage point may be clogged.
Washing Machine Makes Loud Noises.
One of the more annoying washing machine problems is when the washer makes thumping, grinding, or thunking noises during the agitation or spin cycles. Repair this problem as soon as possible, since the errant movement can damage the washer and create new problems.
The tub bearings, located directly below the tub, may be worn out and in need of replacement.
If the washing machine is making a squeaking sound, the tub bearings may need lubrication.
The washing machine motor drive belt or pulley may be worn out. This is a rather involved repair, where you need to take apart a significant section of the machine to get to the motor.
The pump pulley belt may be cracked, frayed, or otherwise out of shape. Often the belt will smell like burning rubber, too.
Washing Machine Will Not Agitate.
One common problem associated with washing machines: The machine's basin or tub fills with water but the central agitator does not move.
Agitation is the back and forth motion that cleans the clothing. This action is performed by the central plastic cone-shaped device called the agitator. Small plastic directional cogs (also known as "dogs") connect the upper portion of the agitator with the bottom portion. Open the lid while the machine is in agitation mode. Depress the lid switch with the blunt end of a pen so that the machine does not stop while the lid is open. If the machine is making normal sounds of agitation or even a grinding noise, yet the agitator is not moving, the cogs may be worn down or broken and in need of replacement.
Your machine's washer motor may have been affected by a power spike and needs to be reset. All brands have different reset procedures; check your owner's manual for possible information about motor resetting. For example, many General Electric washing machines require you to unplug the machine, plug it back in, then lift and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds, raising the lid a minimum of 2 inches to break the lid switch magnetic connection.

Washing Machine Fills With Water But Will Not Drain.
Many homeowners have had the unpleasant experience of lifting the washing machine lid, only to discover clothes floating in a tub filled with murky gray water. If you catch the machine early enough, the water is still hot or lukewarm.
Your machine's pump may be clogged with a piece of fabric or some other item related to washing. Bail the water out with a kitchen measuring cup and then unplug the machine. Take off the screws on the front panel. Tilt the machine up and prop the front of the machine on two-by-fours or bricks for easier access. Your machine's pump housing may be easily visible, making it simple to assess whether you have a clog in the pump. If so, use pliers to gently untwist the clog from the pump.
Alternatively, the clog may be located in the corrugated tube that leads to the pump. Unclamp the tube. Have a bucket or bin nearby, because this tube will be filled with water. Drain the water. If there is a clog in the hose, it will usually be at the end of the hose. Pull it out by hand or with pliers.
07 of 07.
When your washing machine is running, particularly during the spin cycle, it may violently shake or vibrate , often so much that the machine "walks." This may be pronounced if you have a high-efficiency machine , which has a faster spin cycle than top-loading machines.
Your machine may need to be rebalanced. Use a bubble level to assess the level of the machine from side-to-side and front-to-back. Readjust the machine's level by turning the machine's legs up or down. Unlike the dryer, which has just two front adjustable legs, most washing machines have four adjustable legs.
With stacking washer-dryer combinations, the connection straps may have loosened, causing the unit to shake violently. This can be a dangerous situation, since the dryer may fall off of the washer. Tighten the connection straps or replace them if necessary.
The classic and most easily fixable cause of a shaking clothes washer is an unbalanced load. Drape long, heavy items around the central agitator so that they are not grouped on one side. Move large items to the other side of equally large items.
Consider purchasing an anti-vibration pad. Independently testing has shown that pads that are 3 inches thick do an excellent job of deadening the shaking and vibration. While not inexpensive, these pads can be a valuable tool for reducing the transmission of washer vibration to your home.

Many of the problems for any brand of washer can be solved without a service call; even by the mechanically challenged.
Here are seven tips to help you problem solve when your washer isn't working properly . These may save you the expense of a service call or eliminate some issues so the problem is easier for the technician to solve.
Check to be sure the washer is plugged in. This seems so simple, but repairmen get paid when that's all it takes to make an appliance work. Plugs can get bumped loose by animals or fallen objects.
Washer Is Plugged in but Still Won't Work.
Once you've made sure the washer is properly plugged into the electrical outlet and it still won't run, it's time to check your central home electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or a circuit breaker has tripped.
You may be able to replace the fuse or turn the breaker back on. If this happens frequently, call an electrician immediately!
Washer Is Plugged In, Breakers Are Fine but It Still Won't Work.
Today's washers, both front and top load models, require a lid switch to engage for the washer to work. These switches can break and have to be replaced. They can also just get "gunked up" with lint and detergent residue. Use a cotton swab and a bit of rubbing alcohol to clean the contact areas. You'll be amazed.
MML.
If you've established electrical power, the next thing you need is water. Here's what to do if there is no water coming into the washer.
Be sure the water valves are open. You should have two valves: a hot and a cold. They may be marked or signified by a red/blue knob or switch. Even if you always wash in cold water , some washers won't operate unless both valves are open. If your machine is getting water but it fills very slowly, you may just need to open the valve more.
If the washer won't fill and the water valves are open, you may have a clog in the filter screen. Unplug the machine. Turn off the water valves. Get a bucket to catch the remaining water in the hoses. Unscrew the hoses from your machine, and check to see if there is a clog in the filter. A simple cleaning may do the trick to get your washer working again.
This often happens because the washer has been loaded improperly or the laundry has shifted during the cycle. For standard top load washers, never load clothing on just one side of the central agitator, distribute it evenly around the washer's tub. For high efficiency top load washers with no central agitator, the problem can be overloading. In front load models , the noises can come if the machine is underloaded, and one heavy item is being flung around during the final spin.
If the thumping occurs during a cycle (usually the spin cycle), simply stop the machine and redistribute the wet clothing.
Weird Noises.
Humming, clicking or gurgling can be caused by objects caught in the washer's drum or internal mechanisms, clogged drains or internal sensors. Clicking or gurgling often signals an object caught in the water pump or drain line. These are easily accessed for cleaning (most front load washers have a little door near the bottom to check). You'll probably find a button, coin or tiny toy inside. Another reminder to check pockets before loading clothes.
If your washer is making squealing or screeching noises, this indicates an internal mechanical problem that will require a service call.
If after rebalancing the load of wet clothes the washer is still noisy and vibrates, the washer is now off-balance. You must take steps to level the washer , or it will never be quiet and further damage can occur.
The first thing to check is the washer's hose connections to the hot and cold water valves. Use a dry hand or a paper towel to run down the length of each hose. If you find any dampness, tighten immediately. If the hose appears to have small splits, replace immediately. A burst water hose is a huge mess and damages walls and floors. Washer hoses should be checked and replaced regularly to prevent this problem.
Pay attention to where the puddle is located , whether in the front of the washer or back of the washer. The location will give you a hint as to what to do next.
If you have a front-loading machine, be certain that you are using an HE - high efficiency - detergent . These are formulated to be low-sudsing and to be used in the lower levels of water in a front-loading washer .
Front-loading machines have a small overflow system usually on the back of the machine. If you have too many suds , they are probably escaping from there.

Clothes Are Still Too Wet After Spin Cycle.
If your clothing is still quite wet after the spin cycle, first check to see if the drain hose is kinked or crushed. If your washer "dances" during cycles, it may have moved and kinked the hose.
The water pump may be clogged with lint or a small object. If the pump isn't allowed to work freely and properly, the water drains out too slowly and leaves your clothes wet. Clean it out (this does not require removing the pump). Even a little lint can slow the draining.
If that is not the problem, the drain hose could be clogged with lint or hair. It can easily be cleaned with a thin, long-handled brush . Pet shops carry the brushes to clean aquarium tubes if you can't find one at the hardware store.

Hopefully you've kept the operating manual. Get it out and read it! You may just find the answer to your question. If you don't have the manual, visit the manufacturer's website or one of these sites to download a manual . It may take a little time but it's much less expensive than a repair call.
One last thing to do before calling a repairman is to visit online appliance repair sites. A helpful site is Repair Clinic.com .
