Question about Danby Washing Machines

1 Answer

Rinse cycle of our Danby Portable washing machine

Occasionally, not all the time, the water, which is being pumped in continues to pump out. The water just keeps going through the machine. This is a problem. It is a real problem. We pump water out of the lake into a holding tank. The washer pumps all the water out of the tank; and the hot water tank. This could burn out our pumps and our hot water tank. We got the machine because it would be using less water. What do you think is wrong with it? We would really like to fix it ourselves since we live out of town in the Yukon and taking it into town to get it fixed (if anyone can even fix it) will be costly.

My husband is very good at fixing things and could probably fix it with the proper advice, pictures and parts.

Waiting for your reply.

Find the drain solenoid valve and see if it is stuck open. It should be near the drain outlet. Measure the power at the drain solenoid. It should be 0 volts when the washer is filling. If there is power there (AC voltage), then there is something wrong with the control board, this is unlikely. I suspect the solenoid valve has seized in the open position. Manually advance the wash cycle to drain or spin. The solenoid should click when it opens. If it buzzes, then it is seized. The best thing is to watch and listen as you advance the cycle and see if you can verify what the valve on the solenoid is actually doing. I suspect you may want to replace this solenoid.

Hi our Bosch exxcel washing machine has stopped spinning and doesn't reach the end of its cycle most of the time. If it does the washing is still soaking and needs a new rinse and spin cycle after....


Hi gillsteer,

I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

After this, the Spin cycle will run, after the drainage procedure. If it does not, then you may need to replace the Drain Motor. Which is a easy task.

Kind Regards :-)

During short spin cycles between rinses it doesn't pump water out


Try looking to see if the little motor is spinning the drain pump. It is in the bottom right. Occasionally I get a small metal shard which locks the pump and therefore-no draining. You can undo everything and check the pump for blockage. Then if need be, replace the mechanisim. The parts are all on line, as is the manual. or call 800 776-3538
