Clean the drain hose in bottom of washer if water wont drain

I CAME TO THE SITE WITH THE PROBLEM OF MY WASHER NOT DRAINING. I HAVE HAD PROBLEMS WITH THIS FOR MONTHS. TAKING THE HOSES OFF. CLEANING THEM ETC... TODAY I FOUND THE BEST SOLUTION.. THE WOMAN WHO POSTED THAT SHE SAVED HER HUSBAND $300.00 BY TAKING THE BOTTOM OFF WASHER WAS RIGHT.....

BOTTOM OF FRONT LOADER.. THERE ARE THREE SCREWS.. YOU NEED ONE OF THOSE NOT PHILLIPS BUT ROUND LOOKING SCREW DRIVERS(SORRY).. ANYWAY TAKE OFF THREE SCREW.. ONE ON LEFT, RIGHT AND MIDDLE.. THERE IS A WHITE DRAIN HOSE WITH A CAP.. VERY HEAVY PLASTIC FRONT. IT IS HARD TO TWIST OFF CAP BUT KEEP TRYING. ANYWAY IT IS GONNA GET REALLY WET.. SOME WATER CAME OUT AT FIRST BUT I WAS NOT CONVINCED.. SO UNDRNEATH I STARTED TO SQUEEZE THE HOSE AND OUT POPPED 3 SOCKS AND AN ERASER.. THEN ALL THE WATER THAT WAS IN THE WASHER THAT WOULDNT DRAIN.. EVERYTHING WAS SOAKED INCLUDING ME AND MY SON SO BE READY WITH LOTS OF TOWELS. BUT IT WORKED. IM HAPPY TO SAY IM DOING MY FIRST LOAD NOW AND EVERYTHING IS RUNNING BEAUTIFUL...

filliing even when door is open and not draining completely


Inside of the solenoid/valve are flaps that open and close upon command from the control center. When dirt, grime, or sand collect, it can keep the valve open or closed. You need to have a Pre-Filter system like a water conditioner to keep debris from entering the machine. In the mean time, remove the water lines Hot and Cold from the washer. If you have a vacuum hose that can blow and suck, do both at the ports on the machine. Clean all hoses out so no debris is inside the walls of the hoses. Tap the in/out ports on the washer with the back end of the screw driver to loosen up any particles that did collect inside the valves. If all looks clean and in order, use a hose screen in the hose attachment to the washer to keep debris out ( available for a few cents from Lowes) , reattach Hot to Hot, Cold to Cold.

Turn on the water valves and try to start fresh. If that fails, you need a professional service agent.

drain erro


Thanks for choosing Fixya and welcome to the site. If you have a draining error or draining issue, you will need to check the drain hoses and check the water pump. The hoses and pump can get clogged over time and cause draining issues. I am not for sure what all is wrong with your washer, so if you can give me more detail, I will be glad to help. Thanks.

My Bosch Classixx washing machine has been failing to take up the fabric softener for a few days now. The drawer is left full of water after the wash. I've tried cleaning everything with bottle brushes, initially there was a fair bit of grotty black mould in there (!)but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions would be welcome.


you have a clog somewhere in the system drainage hoses or threw water passage pump
run the washer machine with some liquid draino washer version to unclog what is clogged they make this for washer machines
and once done there running a cycle of washer draino make sure too run bleach in your washer to finish cleaning cycled out make sure there are no kinks in the hoses this will also hinder the draining
