Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

We have a new washer. It is flashing F29 and won't drain.

The washer is 2/3 full of water. We tried the rinse and spin/drain but it just puts a bit more water in. Sears says they'll send somebody Tuesday. Anything we can do be fore that - washer has clothes in it too.

Please help me with my washer

Hello browneyez070

You said, your Hotpoint top loader washing machine won't spin water out. Model VBXR1O6OVOWW?

Common causes before considering repairs.

Water won’t drain
Drain hose is kinked or
Improperly connected on it.

• Top of drain outlet should be less than 8 ft. above floor.
• Straighten drain hose and make sure washer is not sitting

Let me know if these measures help.

Not spinning

I found my Classixx 1200 express with a flashing spin light, the water wasn't up in the drum, so I moved the selector to rinse, and pressed start, pump was noisy but worked, I could hear water going into the drain, thinking I'd got a blockage in thye pump, I drained machine using small hose and inspected the pump orifice at the front of the machine (towel handy to catch spillage.
No obvious blockage and the pump could be turned by hand, tried rinse again with water feed turned off, (otherwise it pumps for a while and then lets water in to rinse - which comes out the open pump housing!) I could see the pump impeller spinning but also sticking, its was also noisy.
Solution - new pump, according to my local spares shop, the pump is available as either motor & impeller (back half), or complete with black housing that the pipes fit to, to get the front cover off, and to remove the pump, you need a "star" screwdriver or key, and a pair of pliers to undo the hose clips - have a bowl ready to catch the water, and make sure the machine's unplugged before you start!

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
