DIY Washer Repair

If your front-load or top-load washing machine won't fill, drain, spin or start, let Sears PartsDirect help with the know-how you need to fix it yourself. Some washers display an error code when a part breaks. Look up your error code on our error code charts to get troubleshooting tips and find out which part to replace. We’ll also show you how to read the error codes on a common top-load washer in this How to Display Error Codes on Vertical Modular Washers (VMWs) video.

Our troubleshooting videos can help you diagnose the cause of common problems such as a top-load washer that won’t drain or spin or a top-load washer that won’t fill. Or maybe you hear coins or other items rattling in the drain pump of your front-load washer. Our video shows how to clean out the drain pump filter and stop the rattling noise that happens when the washer drains.

Once you find out what’s broken on your washer, check out our DIY repair guides to see how to replace the part. Before you know it, you’ll be back doing the one thing we can’t help you with—actually washing your laundry!
