SOURCE: drain hose not working

You simply have to check your drain hose and exit filter; the problem is there. When yr machine does not drain it is surely the exit filter. Refer to your user manual.

THANK YOU. for those of you with a screw driver, here are the photos on how to.

It takes a philips screw driver and 20 minutes. The white screws may not align perfectly but don't worry, just get them to go back in the hole(no harm done).

I'm going to admit it was my wife that found this fix, so now I give the step by step photos.

SOURCE: GE Washer won't drain or spin

this is something that you can fix even if your not a technical person . first you have to open the washing machine front panel or back panel , second , follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its connected to a little motor, disconnect the DRAIN HOSE , take the LITTLE MOTOR out and clean it out , it could be clogged.
it happen once and find out the person put the BATH RUG SET
to wash , the rug was so old that pieces of a rubber underneath the rugs clogged the drain , so there was no rinse and no spin.
try it , I hope it helps.

All,
There are three screws under the plate beneath the door. Remove these three screws and remove panel. Immediately you will see a removeable plug about 2 1/2" in diameter made of white plastic. This is where your problem lies (or at least one of them). CAUTION - before you remove this plug, put a bucket under it because water will come out. After you unscrew the plug completely, pull it out toward you. You will no doubt find many items that washed out of your cloths. I found legos and coins tangles up with strigs and lint. The entire area was completely plugged. The coins were probably the source af the stains we had on our cloths as they were all black from the water and soap.

The pump on mine burned out and I am trying to replace it. Then I will sell this junker.

I hope this helps some of you. Please advise.

Kenmore 90 series washer won't drain and go to spin cycle


Take the power plug off the wall. Be prepared for a lot of water before attempting the following. It doesn't spin because the unit is not draining water. It will not spin with water in it - must drain first. Check drain hose for kink,check exit pipe for blockage. Remove the front access panel, bottom front, screws beneath; if you find a pipe there with a cap -this is for draining water. Could be your "coin trap assembly" is blocked, therefore not allowing all the water to pump out. Remove the clamp (or unscrew) that connects the trap assembly to the pump and clean it out.
If helped pl say so.

How can I use jumpers to test 131763202 Frigidaire door lock switch on washer? Won't agitate or spin.


Hi slogjlog - Often when a unit does not spin or agitate, it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

My HE2 front load wouldn't drain & spin and was making noises below. i called Affordable Repair and they said the control panel had to be replaced for $200 + labor. i said the noise is coming from u


Hi.

The noise coming from underneath is symptom of a problem with drain pump or drain line.

The standard procedure consists in accessing the drain filter to check if it is blocked, then testing drain pump. Most of the time the noise is caused by blockage at drain filter. In some case the pump is gone.

The control panel gets replaced only after checking drain filter, testing drain pump and also after testing the water pressure switch that determines when to start or stop the pump.

Bye.

My washer did fill, but won't spin or drain now and the door won't open


Hi tragz,

If it can't drain, it won't spin. There may be something preventing the pump from draining in the Pump filter. You will need to clean it.

Please follow my below Tip on how to do it:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

Kind Regards d")

My washer will not spin, it sounds like it's trying to spin but it won't spin and if i turn the barrell by hand it spins so it's not frozen or anything. Any suggestions?


Hi mwilczewsk,

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 :-)

Won't spin


Hi.

There are several things to check. First of all check if it drains before spinning. If machine drains OK, skip to check the pressure switch, the motor control unit and control.

Most common problems resulting in no spin are caused by drain system.

Check the position of the drain hose. Ensure that the height is as specified by the manual or you get siphoning and drain does not end.

Access the drain filter. With most front loaders this located in front at the base, there should be a trim or an access panel.

The machine has a pressure switch. It is a sensor connected to a long thin rubber hose. The pressure switch is often in control assembly. Clean the hose and the switch. One way to test it is by blowing into the switch, but manufacturers say this must not be done.
The pressure switch is difficult to test in full.

Most machines have a tech sheet tucked inside the control panel assembly. You take off panel that is held by a couple of screws and see if there is the envelope with the sheet.

The rest of testing is more complex because concerns motor and motor control unit. The motor control unit is a module located inside the machine. Testing of this parts is done reading voltages and Ohms at the motor and at control units contacts. This must be done by a technician.

Here a page on no spin problem.

Start checking drain hose and drain filter.
