My washing machine started giving me issues and it is 3 months out of warranty. When it comes to draining, it does not drain the water and makes a really weird clicking/gear sound. I took the back panel apart and started looking at the basic stuff for wear... everything visually looks good. I did notice the pump slightly warm after about 30 seconds of listening to the problem while visually inspecting the bottom of the washer.
I took off the drain hose in hopes of obstruction but it was clear. Removed the pump and the top housing in hopes of obstruction... clear.
I took out my MM and set it to lowest ohms and here is where I am a bit thrown off due to lack of knowledge. The pump reads 19 when touching both ends, if it gives a reading, the pump is good, right?
I also set the MM to read continuity touched the leads together to hear the sound. When I touch the pump, it gives a weak sound as if my batteries on the MM are dying. I touch anything else for continuity (drill battery, drills, L brackets, paper clip) and it gives the nice solid sound I am used to hearing.
I did order a replacement pump but just figured there are wiser men and women in this community that could give me some feedback.
