    Whirlpool Washer Model #lsq9010lw1
    Washer is about 3 years old. I had to change the drain hose. When I put the washer back against the wall the hose got kinked. I went out and checked my load of laundry and I could smell plastic burning. When I opened the washer it still had a little bit of water in it. I tried to put the cycle on wash again and it wouldn't fill with water I could here a low hum sound though. I tried the spin cycle also nothing. Now it won't fill, spin, agitate or drain. I'm trying to figure out what part was damaged. Thank You :confused:

    Check the coupling between the motor and transmission. Not hard to do once you remove the cabinet. This wasn't an electrical smell was it?

    Yes The first thing I checked was the cord on the machine to the wall

    You checked the cord but what about the wall outlet? Have you checked it as well?

    Wall outlet is fine I even checked to see if it was working by plugging in a light. Checked top and bottom plug in.

    Sorry,asking about wall switch I was thinking about another post. This smell, it was plastic and not electrical smelling like a motor burning smell?

    I think at this point I would remove cabinet and check everything. It will find problem quickly and you will be back to washing again.
