Whirlpool washer won't agitate, spin, or drain
« on: May 25, 2014, 07:00:24 PM »
Top loading Whirlpool Model# GSQ9344EQ0

Will fill, but it won't agitate, spin, or drain. Lid switch is fine, motor coupling is intact, and the whole drive system moves when manually turned. The timer seems to turn on, and a humming sound comes from the motor area, but nothing is actually moving. The timer will run for a short time (while the lower humming occurs) but then there is a click and both the timer and the humming stops.

I was hoping someone could give me some alternative ideas. Thanks for any help!

UPDATE: I disconnected the water pump, and the washer started to agitate. I'm going to assume a bad water pump and replace it. If there are any other thoughts, I would appreciate any advice. Thanks.

Something in the pump more likely.

UPDATE - Took the drain pump off to put on a new one, and there was a sock stuck in it. I pulled out the sock, put the old pump back on, working fine now.
