SOURCE: I just bought a Frigidaire Affinity washer model

perhaps not in that hose but in the pump housing just below it, quite possible that someting is jamming the imopellar preventing proper draining of water

Remove the hose and bend it in circiles see if yo see any cracks in the hose if you do replace it or if it's long enough cut out the bad part and replace it. Alos clamps wear out ver time so try replacing the clamps too.

My LG washer stopped mid-load at spin cycle, how can I fix this?

It sounds like a serious fault if there is no power the fuse has gone or some item has burnt out . You will have to arrange for a service engineer to look at it more closely.

I have a maytag neptune washer and I keep getting code "nd". I Checked drain and I. Can hear pump coming on but no water comes out

Hi, the nd code means (no-drain) at the end of the cycle. I repair mine by opening the door of the machine when it was still full of water. I took the back panel off the washer and disconnected the drain hose from the pump. (You're going to get quite a bit of water gushing out at you so be prepared with towels or a shop vac.) At this point you should see a little rubber disc over the end of the section you just exposed on the pump. This is a little drain flap. Just lift it up and you should be able to see into the pump a little bit. At this point I poked around in there with my finger and found a hair pin stuck in the pump! I wasn't able to get it out from this end of the pump so I disconnected the big rubber boot which connects the wash drum to the pump. Then I was able to twist the pump (counter clock-wise) and release it from the washer base. I didn't have to disconnect any wires and was then able to see into the other side of the pump and pull the hairpin out. Put everything back together and it's worked fine ever since.

Water goes down into washer, but does not seem to

Well if this is a front loading GE and it has a pump similar to the Frigidaire Models (who knows who makes what for whom) there is a check valve that closes on the pump where the hose connects to the drain hose if this has fallen apart or off the pump will allow the water to drain into the hose rather than staying in the wash tub without knowing the model number it is difficult to be certain of this. If yours has the small access panel on the front with two screws at the bottom most likely the pump check flap (small piece of rubber on the pump outlet) is probably shot. Only other thing is to make sure the drain hose has not changed position and causing siphoning of the wash tub.

Water not leaving machine

It won't drain If your washer won't drain, check these: It spins, but doesn't pump It doesn't spin or pump It pumps, but the water returns It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Water won't drain from the washer

Most common problem is clogged pump. Unplug and remove back cover. Pump should be at rear left o washer. Clamp off tub-to-pump hose if you can and have plenty of towels handy. Pull off the clamp from the outlet part of pump. Make sure the Back-flow stop flap is not stuck up in pump. check up in pump and remove any obstructions. May have to do same for other opening of pump. If this does not correct the pump may be bad or may have problem in control board.

Drain and spin problem please help

In the pump of these units, have a rubber flap that allows water to go out, but not come back in. Sort of like the rubber flap in your toilet. Often, these things get (through use or age) degraded and either come off or get twisted, especially when you have hard water. Its a very small round rubber part that can easily be replaced, but you must take the face off of the washer to gain access to the pump (situated on the bottom of the washer usually in front) and remove the drain hose. its a red flap. If this is not your problem (usually if this is the problem, your clothes would be all soak and wet as water is not being pumped out) then you may just want to take the face off the washer, and feel the belt around the motor pully. if this is loose, that could be why the clothes are not spinning with as much force as a tighter belt. Or your motor could be going..if it is an older unit that is not unheard of.

My washer won't pump out water!

on some drain pumps there is a valve on the exit - just a rubber flap that can stick. remove drain hose at exit of pump and check.
also, if drain is plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap, remove drain hose at sink end and check spigot is not blocked

Water flowing back into washer after wash

There is a back flow valve attached to the outlet port of the drain pump. It is just a small rubber flap. This sometimes comes loose or remains open due to debris and allows the water in the drain hose to flow back into the machine after the drain pump shuts off. It can be checked by removing the drain hose from the pump inside of the machine. You will lose all of the water in your machine (about 1/2 gallon)when you do this so be prepared with a bunch of towels.
