Washer filled with water then stopped working

I have a Whirlpool washer/dryer combo in which the washer has stopped working. This happened earlier today. I checked and the dryer still runs. I have unplugged the unit from the wall for a minute and also opened/closed the lid multiple times within a few seconds and that hasn't reset it or anything. I am not sure where in the cycle the washer stopped because I didn't pay attention to the knob before trying to figure out what was wrong with it, but the washer is full of water. I bailed out about 1/3 of the water and tried to 'reset' the cycle to see if it would start to fill up with water again but it still did nothing.

I should probably note that I recently bought some new towels that seem to have shed quite a bit in the dryer (the lint screen was plum full) but I figured if the washer was trying to drain it would at least make some sort of noise.

Any help would be appreciated. I would really like to get this fixed rather than go through the process of buying a new setup.

@eatsleepindie does it drain when you move the timer? what exact model is it? If it does not drain but everything else functions i.e. agitator moves program timer advances but washer does not drain, I would suspect an issue with the pump.

The water does not drain regardless of where I put the timer. In fact now nothing happens in any of the timer positions. It's an old model so I'm not sure if simply turning the timer to a specific position should start the agitator or start it draining, but neither works. So far I've figured it was the timer itself or the lid switch, but if you think it is the pump then I'll likely order a new one. Is there a way I can test to make certain the pump is the issue?

It's a Whirlpool 'Thin Twin'. Definitely an older appliance, came with the house but I'd much rather fix it than but a new one if possible.

Same thing happened to me today! What was the problem? What was your solution?

@eatsleepindie check your lid switch first.

Cause 1

Drain Pump

Sometimes, small objects or articles of clothing can get caught in the drain pump. To determine if anything is blocking the drain pump, remove the drain pump and check the pump for obstructions. If the drain pump is clear of obstructions, but is still noisy during the drain cycle, replace the drain pump.

Cause 2

Clogged Pump or Hose

Sometimes, socks and other small articles of clothing can get into the drain system and clog the pump hose or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump and check for any obstructions.

Cause 3

Lid Switch Assembly

The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. If the lid switch assembly fails, the washer will not drain. To determine if the lid switch assembly is defective, use a multimeter to test each of the lid switches for continuity. If a lid switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Teresa, mine did the same thing. What did you determine was the issue with yours?

Wow, I wouldn't have believed it, but my sister was having the same problem and I had her slam the lid and it started working!!

Hey Al.

Have you checked to make sure the outlet the washer plugs into has power? Is it possible that the circuit breaker was tripped?

Also Al, really would be helpful if you'd include the washer model number, as several members have previously suggested.

I have had this exact same problem with my Whirlpool. Not sure if yours is a top loader like mine, but I found that slamming the lid would get it going. Then my husband discovered that there was a screw on the side of the lid that was loose. Not sure how a loose screw on the side of the lid prevents it from starting to agitate, but once he tightened it, the washer worked fine. No more lid slamming. Lol

I can’t believe it but I read this because my whirlpool was not working and I also slammed the lid and it started working. Once it finishes, I will see if there are any screws to tighten it.
