wont drain or spin
« on: June 11, 2011, 08:59:58 AM »
washes fine, will not drain or spin pump is good and water drains out fine when drain hose is put into bucket, once some water is drained then it will spin but not drain on its own. there is no power to pump when its supposed to be pumping. im thinking lid switch....what do you think?

It won't Spin until the water is pumped out
On that model, Pump won't work if Lid Lock is defective.
