The drum wont spinn with wate in it(very fast anyway). if you remove the agitator, the inner tub lifts right out(its a floating basket) perhaps an article of clothes has gotten below it preventing free floating of the tub. While out ive als seen where the metal spline/shaft has worn down the plastic counterpart and the tub has nothing to grabonto to allw to spin, the sppline and plastic counterpart are very apparent after removing the agitator, they sell a spline repair kit(new spline and holder (3 screws) easy repair.

Samsung WF7700N6W1 washing machine not draining


Could be a sock or something between the 2 drums that moves over the outlet hole from the drum when upright and trying to drain but moves away when machine is on its side. Get a flashlight and look through the holes in the inner drum and you may find the culprit.
A coin may also be stuck in by the pump blade, not always easy to see but worth a look.

Washing machine won't drain

When your washing machine won't drain, it could be as simple as a kinked hose or as complicated as a faulty impeller on the pump. Overloading your washing machine can cause items to be swept into the space between the inner and outer tub, leading to clogs in the drain hose or pump. These clogs may be the reason for why your washing machine won't drain. Here are some steps to help you determine the problem and solution:

1. Pinched hose: Is the drain hose at the back of the washer been flattened or twisted in any area? A pinched hose could prevent the water from draining thoroughly. Gently straighten the hose, and make sure there is sufficient room between the back of the washing machine and the wall to prevent a repeat of the problem.

2. Clogged drain hose or pump:
Does the drum spin normally, but the washing machine won't drain the water? Sometimes a piece of clothing, money, fabric or other debris gets into the water between the inner and outer tub. It may then make its way into a drain hose or even into the pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. Call a repair professional for help.

3. Faulty timer: Does your machine fill with water and begin agitating, but the cycle never advances far enough to allow the water to drain? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. Arrange for washing machine repair service.

4. Worn or loose belts: Are clothes still soaked at the end of a wash, even though the washing machine appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. This is a job for the pros.

5. Faulty or jammed internal impeller on pump: When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? The internal impeller that moves the water through the drain pump may be faulty or jammed. A grinding or grating sound is almost always an indication of a coin, button or other object colliding with the impeller. Have a washing machine repair expert determine if the impeller is jammed and can be cleared, or if the pump needs to be replaced.

6. Pump failure: Is your washing machine more than 7 years old? Your pump may simply have worn out. Even if it sounds as though it is running, the pump may not be working well enough to draw the water out of the machine. Replacement parts for pumps are generally unavailable. A new pump may be necessary.

For more troubleshooting steps, see Washing machine won't drain. I hope this helps!

Water pores out on spin


Take off the cover and check for any holes in the top of the plastic tub surrounding the drum . This can occur when the washer is or was previously severely out of balance and the drum rubs a hole in the side of the tub. Since the water is usually below this level until the spin cycle pushes the water up the sides of the tub, it only becomes apparent then. Another possibility is there may be a blockage in the pump or drain hose. If you still have a good amount of water in the tub due to the washer not draining completely before the spin cycle, the water will sling everywhere when it attempts to spin. I hope this helps! Good luck!

My washing machine dont spin or drain water can you please tell me what to do and where about are the filter in then machine/


Either your drain pump is bad or something is stuck in it. It won't spin until it drains so fix the drain pump, and it will spin. You should be able to get at the drain pump by taking off the bottom panel, or back panel.

My washer won't spin on spin cycle


Hi rapwizz,

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 :-)

After wash cycle, tube will not drain water?


Probably a blocked empty pump filter. Spin won't kick in until all the water is evacuated. If there is a little left, the machine will do the slow turn cycle that it does just before spin starts but not start the spin cycle because of the water in the drum.

You need to locate the filter and clean it. That should fix your problem. Once this is done, remember to keep the filter clean every few months.

I have a Frigidare FWX833AS1 which had been working quite well until a screw left in a pants pocket lodged in the basket/drum. after that it hasnt drained completely but running the spin cycle a second...


Take off the back of the machine. Locate the water pump, it will have the drain hose attached to it. Remove the water pump and take it apart. You should find your screw and maybe some other things. If the water pump is not damaged reinstall and everything should be working.
