What you need to do is first unplug the washer now once youve pulled the washer out so it is clear from all sides now take the lid off by undoing the srcews at the back now looking at the inside top, half way down each side unscrew the first screw you come to now look on the out side of the washer there are little plugs at the bottom in the middle get a small screwdriver put it in the hole and pop them out there are 8ml bolt heads to unscrew on both sides now at the back look to the bottom of the washer i think the laqst 2 are there once all screws are unscrewed pull each side in the middle outwards back should pull off so you can get to the outlet hose which should have a clip holding it on,with some wide grips squeeze together and pull the pipe should come off but beware there will be water which will flood out m8

Lg intellowasher wd-8015c won't drain?


Most probably pump is blocked or the hose is blocked. Put drain hose lower or the blades are broken. It is not that hard to check if you know where the pump is and you can take it off without requiring special tools.

Tip

The washing machine spins but will not drain?


To trouble shoot this problem please check this possibilities:-- The first thing to check out in this problem is check the draining line in the washing machine. Check if the drain line is got clogged or its getting blocked by any metal or dust object in the pump. Also check in between the inner clothes tub and the outer tub which holds the water. If the blockage is between the tubs, then it may clog the drain hose which is connected to the pump. If you notice blockage in the pump, then remove the hoses from the pump and clear the blocking material by removing it out.
But if the pump is clean and clear and hoses are also seen clean then the other part to check is
outer tub part, for that you will need to open the washer's main access panel and remove the rubber material hose connecting the pump .the hose is exactly connected to the bottom area of the outer tub. If you notice any blockage/clogging in that area you can remove it with the help of pliers.
If you are not able to remove the clog or if you can see but its seen in very inner area then you need to take the agitator out, after removing the agitator remove the top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. You will require some special tools to do the job in this case.
But if inner tub, agitator and other parts looks clean and clear then you need to check the drain pump. it may be leaking or it may be worn out and got loose.
This is the basic checking and troubleshooting you can do it yourself to resolve this issue of not draining.

The tub wont drain


Now for the repairs -

1. Remove all the clothing that is in the washer.

2. Remove all the water you can via a siphon hose technique.

3. Remove drain line from its drain and put it in a shallow bucket on floor and drain out whatever water it may have. Turn off cold and hot water feeds and remove drain lines. Drain water from them.

Now for the hard work - a helper is probably needed. You may wish to take digital photos of things before you take them apart so you get them back together properly later (I strongly recommend you do this). Get the tool box, a flash light, and an extension light out - you will need them.

4. Tip washer over on its side - and watch for and collect any water that it may have still in it. Remove the drain hose from the water pump (the drain hose connects to the pump). Remove belt from water pump. Remove water pump and take it apart. Make sure nothing is blocking the pump itself (a laundry item may be there); reassemble pump and make sure it spins freely at the belt pulley. Check the drain line from tub to pump - and make sure it is clean. You usually have to also remove the solenoid valve that is opened to permit draining as well - just follow the line to the tub. Make sure solenoid valve feed line has nothing blocking it. Once the entire drain line, drain solenoid valve, and pump are clear and clean, reconnect everything properly. Return washer to upright position. Connect water hoses and drain line.

To replace water pump on Chevrolet s-10. You need take of the top half of the fan shroud, pop off the hoses to the water pump and the take out the bolts to the water pump.To get the fan off, you need a special tool called a half h tool, The half H tool holds the bolts in place so you have leverage to then twist the fan off.Before removing parts to replace water pump first drain the antifreeze.Place the drain pan under the radiator, open the drain on the bottom of the radiator and allow the antifreeze to drain into the pan.Remove the upper fan shroud using a 10-mm socket. Remove the four 13-mm nuts securing the radiator fan to the water pump pulley, using a wrench.Pull the water pump pulley off the water pump. Remove all hoses from the water pump, including the lower radiator hose and upper heater hoses.

Will not drain. it does'nt look like its spinning very fast.


The washing machine not draining water.This problem is related to few possibilities. 1) The drain pump is got loose to the drain hose. check the connection from drain hose to drain pump. 2) The drain is blocked by any thing.Like cloth or any thing like metallic nails or coils etc etc. 3) The drain hose is got blocked./The drain hose is not letting the water to enter the drain pump. In most of the cases the drain pump has to be removed and checked for any kind of blockages.Also if the machine not draining can effect the spin cycle.But other possibilities for no spin or slow spin are faulty or broken motor coupler or weak spin motor.The motor coupler and motor both can be possible,if the drain pump and drain hose both checked ok.This will clear the fault. ----------- Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks,.

My machine is going through a wash cycle and has stopped with a "drainage blocked" light


Look for a kinked drain hose. Make sure drain hose is not plugged. Remove drain hose from washer and inspect drain outlet on washer is not plugged. Stick your finger inside and feel for any clothing fabric ect blocking drain line. The washer may have a built-in screen that is plugged. You may need to remove the back cover of the washer and inspect drain hoses for any kinks or blockages.

Hoover nextra washing machin3e , not draining


Yes Disconnect drain hose from the rear of washer. You will need to use special pliers that have notches in them to grab the hose clamp or you might need a Screw Driver if the hose clamp is a regular hose clamp. Remove clamp and flush washer hose with a high pressure hose or garden hose. Inspect drain where you took the hose off for any blockage. You might have to do this two or three times.Yet most of the time one time is good enougg. Good Luck!

Water not draining after the wash cycle


Sounds like either you have a blockage in the drain pump or the drain hose is blocked.
The washing machine will run the drain pump for about 2 to 3 minutes to empty water from the drum then stop automatically.
If the pump is blocked or the drain hose blocked or kinked then water will be left in the drum.
Blockages are usually caused by buttons, bra wires or metal objects from pockets eg coins.
The pump can be popped open using simple tools ie screwdriver and any obstruction removed easily. The drain hose can be detached and a metal object eg knife dropped through to test for a blockage.
