Washer will not pump water

When turned on my washer does not have any water coming in. None, not even a trickle or the sound of water. The spin cycle works when I skip to it though. I checked the hoses and they are fine and so is the water pressure.

Re: Washer will not pump water

There are screens in the inlets for the hot and the cold water. Depending on your water source and the age of your plumbing, you could have sediment collecting and blocking these screens. Check and flush before you do anything.

Washer does not completely spin out the water on the spin cycle.

Output hose might be plugged, water can't get pumped out if end of hose or internal in hose has crud in it. Does water pour out during spin or just trickle, if trickle it has a plugged section.

Sounds like your drain line is clogged. You may also have stuff clogging a water filter just before the pump, or the water outlet coming from the drum.
It could also be a problem with the pump, but until the drain line is opened up, you still won't be able to empty the water from the washer.

Washer has water remaining in the tub after it finishes, happens intermitantly. Some times, after washer is off, you can hear water trickling & when you open the door, water is trickling down from the...

Sounds like you may have a bad water valve. Go to and the water valve will be #14. You can check to see if this is the problem by running a load. After the machine is finnished adding water in the rince cycle, turn the water off to the machine. Let it finnish spinning. Then look to see if the water is still coming in. When a water valve goes bad it can act funny in many differant ways. Your sonds like it may have trash in it that allows it to leak water some of the time. Good luck

Slow spin, water under the front of my washer


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.

Good Luck!!

Water pumping out at a trickle. stops in mid cycle

The timer seems to have gone out on you. Try to manually set it on spin and if that works then the timer is out.

Washing machine fills, agitation fails

Problem solved. The short version; there was a toddler's sock stuck in the water pump. Once removed, the machine works great.
FYI - After I removed the outer casing, to drain the water, I removed the BOTTOM hose from the pump first (TOP hose was unrestricted flow and my spill pan under the washer wouldn't have been able to keep up with the volume). The water trickled out steady and slow, which made me think 'obstruction.' Once the water drained, I pulled off hose #2 and there was the sock. The motor turns both the transmission (agitation/spin cycles) and the pump. The blocked pump was preventing the motor from turning, and the safety mechanism was kicking out so as to prevent the motor from burning up. I checked the motor and transmission while I had it apart, just to verify these other parts could move on their own and had no issues. They were fine. There's something to be said for these older washers ... even a 'no experienced idiot' like me can figure out how it works. Hope this is helpful to someone else out there.

PS - The hardest part was getting the washer casing back into place.

My washer drains but then continues to fill with water.

There is a small piece that is inside where the water runs into the machine it is called a water inlet valve. I had the same problem a few months ago. I know the part is not that expensive but the labor was. When the repair man left I looked at the part and thought I should have tried to fix it myself. It was only a couple of screws.
Hope this helps.

Bosch Axxis WFL2060UC/01 FD8205 won't spin

by elecrical sound i take it you mean a buzzing sound, if so it sounds like your pump is jammed. on the front of your machine their will be a plastic kick plate, if you remove this (carefully) you will find the pump filter, this catches all the debris from the water during the wash (coins,bra wires etc). you can remove this by turning it anti clockwise then pulling it out. remove any obstructions whiich may be lurking in there and also check inside the pump housing as things can get stuck behind the pumps fan then refit the filter.

you may need some old rags whilst you carry out this job as there may be water left i the pipes when you remove the filter.

hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply, thanks kj
