Washer will not drain:

Thedrain water pumpis the main part in your washing machine that pumps out the water. If this is defective or has failed in any way, this will be the reason why your washer will not drain the water. Before you order a new drain pump, make sure tocheck the pump to be sure a small object like clothing or similar has not lodged itself insideof it causing the NO DRAIN issue. If the drain pump is not clogged, you can test it with a multimeter and remove and replace if needed. Go to Google or YouTube and search for "Replace Washing Machine Drain Pump" then type your brand and model number of washer to show you details on replacement.

The washing machinedrain hoseis where the water flows through to get the water out.If this drain hose is blocked, kinked, bent, or clogged, the washer will NOT be able to remove the waterfrom the tub. Check the drain hose to be sure it allows the water to flow freely. You can take the drain hose off and run water through it in your sink to be sure it is not blocked. If there is water STILL in the washer when you remove the drain hose, grab a bucket as the water will exit from where you disconnected it
Thewater pump belt(to drain out the water) may have broke or become frayed or loose.If this belt breaks then it is unable to drain and remove the water from your washer. Inspect the belt to see if this is causing theNO DRAINissue and remove and replace if needed.

If thelid switchis not working as required it will cause your washer to not drain (and many other problems).This may be unlikely as a bad lid switch will usually cause your washer to alsonot agitate or spin.However on some models this can vary. The best thing to do if you have a suspected bad lid switch is to test it. It can fail electrically and or mechanically. If mechanical failure is the issue, you should be able to see if it is cracked, broken, or not in place to make contact with the lid. To test it electrically, use a multimeter set on Ohms and test it for continuityMy advice is free cuz God is good!

Washer is not draining and F21 is flashing on washer

the pump is blocked or the pump could be bad and need to be replaced.remove the bottom panel.if water is still in the tub,get a shop vac and vac out the water,then you'll see in the middle of the pump a piece that unscrews.turn it slowly counter clockwise,when the water starts to leak vac it up until it stops leaking and remove the middle piece out of the pump,clean out the catch,put the piece back in,add a little water to the machine and put it on drain,if it drains then you are done,if it doesn't you'll need a new your parts store,give them the model number and they will sell you the correct pump.good luck,if you need any more help let me know and send the model number

My washing machine will not rinse , spin,or drain

there maybe something plugging the drain pump.if you have a shopvac attach it to the end of the drain hose,and you should be able to drian the water.if you do not have a shop vac and this unit is a top load machine try and move it out from the wall.and lower the drain hose into a mop bucket or large pan and the water should start to gravity flow out of the tub. if this does not work then there is some thing blocking it.once you have removed the water pop the lid on the machine remove the front panel and take the hoses from the pump you should find your blockage.remeber to check the hose that comes down from the bottom of the tub.

if the front panel is not removeable tilt the washer back and see if you can located the drian pump attache to the front of the may be a gray plastic piec with two black hose attached to it remove them and take a look.i hope this is helpful. i would like to hear how things went or you.

Too much water after was is finished

How to get rid of the water after rinsing?

First you need to check the drian hose to be sure it has a loop that is above the sink basin and that drian is clear. Next, remove the plastic screen or grid under the spray arm and check for anything that may obstuct the wire arm mounted to pump motor.
If this has been done and the problem persist you will need to replace the pump and motor since they come as one piece and are easily replaced.
