kitchenaid washer wont spin, drain, or agitate
« on: March 22, 2012, 12:40:04 PM »
I have the same problem as Elfdelight posted on July 30 2010 at 11:52:01 PM and answered by schaffersapplain July 30, 2010, 05:14:17 PM with an exception, if I switch to spin, drain or agitate there is rapid clicking. Kitchenaid washer mod # kaws850gq1 , ser # ck 1026979. After hours searching for an answer this is the best one I found except I have the clicking mentioned above. I drained the water and propped up to check it out, only I don't see how anything ie a sock could get to the pump. I removed the inside plastic pieces, a few months ago I replaced the cams so I knew how to take apart that far lol.   Please help me, thank you.

The rapid clicking on these motors is caused by binding. You may have something in the pump. I fixed one last week. It had a dish rag in the pump.

May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
