Lessons Learned

  • Try to have back up at all time.*

Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry & Laundry Rooms, says:

The problems you describe could be caused by one of many things. Since it will agitate, I'd start with the drain lines and water pump. Check for blockages at the pump or in the drain lines first. You can then move to the next level of parts replacement. If you need a user or repair manual, you can find it here and replacement parts here.

Good luck!
