Why does my washing machine have 2 drain outlets?

I just got this used washer and dryer set, both Maytag, the washer model is LAW9406AAE. Why does this washer have 2 drain outlets in the back? I am sure they both need connected but why 2? Is one the main drain and the other something else? The thing is the outlet hoses are different with one being longer reaching into the sink. Thanks folks.

    Thanks for the info, exactly what I needed! Now I can connect the longer more secure hose to the bottom main drain outlet. You are certainly a guru.

This is a water saver or previously known as a suds saver model. The bottom one is the drain. The top one would go to a suds tub. If you set the machine on save, the wash water is pumped out of the top hose into the holding sink next to the washer. The rinse water goes out the bottom hose to the drain. The next cycle you could set the washer to the very beginning of the main wash cycle and the washer would pump the water from the tub back into the washer to be used as wash water for the second load of laundry. Yea, used water. But the first load would be lightly soiled stuff, and the next load would be old barn clothes or play clothes. It was designed to save water (about 65 gallons used for 2 loads vs. 90 gallons) and soap. (now, front load machines with larger tubs would use as little as 25 gallons for two loads.) Just hook up the bottom hose to the drain. Leave the save / drain switch set to drain and you'll be fine. To be extra safe (in case the switch was accidentally set to save) disconnect the wires at the solenoid where the drain hose splits into two at the back bottom of the washer. (right where the hoses exit the machine.)

Why does my Maytag washer fills all the way to the top no matter what setting it's on?


Pressure switch or a restriction in the hose from the pressure switch to tub. You may just have to disconnect from pressure switch and blow through it.

My washer is not draining. I used to be able to reset it and it would work but now it wont start on any setting and is full of water. Is there anything i can try.


Hi,
If your Maytag washer is not draining, follow these procedures to find out what is the problem.Set the timer in the spin cycle and pull the knob to turn the washer on. If the washer motor doesn't run, check the following parts.



The wall outlet: Make sure that there are about 120 volts present at the wall outlet. Connect a good working hair dryer to see if it works.If the hair dryer works ok, then the problem has to be in the washer. If the hair dryer doesn't work, then look for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.


The lid or door switch : The lid switch is a safety device use to stop the motor from running if the washer door is opened during the agitation or spin cycles. A bad lid switch could be the reason for your washer not draining.

The pump : Check for obstructions inside of the pump and inside of the tub.
Check the pump impeller, the pump belt, check the drain hose for any kinks. Any problems in these parts could be the cause for the Maytag washer not draining.
Lower the drain hose to a bucket to see if the water drains out. If the water won’t drain or just trickles out, most likely there is an obstruction on the pump or inside of the tub and that could cause the washer not draining.
To check the pump, remove the front panel, lean the washer against the wall and bail the water out with a plastic container.
To check the pump, remove the pump belt and turn the pump pulley to make sure that the pulley is turning freely.
Put a couple towels near the pump to catch any water from the pump. Remove the tub to pump hose at and check inside of the pump for any obstruction. If you find an obstruction remove it.
If you don’t find anything, reinstall the hose and remove the hose at the tub, and check for obstructions.
A Maytag washer not draining could be cause simply by a kink drain hose.
You need to make sure that when you replace the pump, you adjust the belts properly.

Maytag washer will not spin


If your washer does everything but does not spin, it is your outlet filter which is blocked. Locate this and clean out, it has to work fine. Refer user's manual.
