Won't drain all the way and won't spin

My washer quit last night. When I open it there is still water in it (not visible but under the clothes compartment) and it won't spin. When I turn it on I can here the motor but it sounds as if it isn't engaging. I've owned it since 2001 and have had no problems until now. Any suggestions? Is it something I can fix or do I need to call a repair person?

    My washer starts the wash cycle, washes for about 5 minutes, then stops in mid cycle. If I hit start again, it will do the same thing but never finish a cycle. You can open the door but clothes are wet and water still standing in the tub.

Inkl ,can you here the water sloshing around?this is normal,it is in the tub itself used for balast.this machine uses a seperate electric pump.if you can look at the control board in the top console and see if r-111 is burnt. (you will tell if it is don't worry about the # you will see a burnt resistor) then you will need a new control and door switch..you must replace them both or a new board will burn out.

If drain hose is connected to a standpipe check that it's inserted no more than 4". You may be getting a syphoning situation that is allowing gray water to contaminate clean clothes.

Not spinning or draining


Remove the lower rear cover of washer.
Locate and remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean the filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should solve your problem.
Please leave feedback.
Thankyou.

WASHER WILL NOT DRAIN WATER KENMORE WASHER APPROX 9 YRS OLD


Does the tub spin without draining?

This JUST happened to me last night. Opened washer after a load and still full of water. Fifteen spins later, still about an inch of water in tub...
RepairClinic.com suggests checking the hoses from the washer tub to the drain pump for anything clogged in it. (WARNING!!! As soon as you remove one end of the hose ANY water remaining in the tub will come RUSHING out if not clogged. I was prepared for water, but not a rush of water.)
If there is no clog in that hose, remove the drain pump and check for something in it.
(My pump was burning up because some how a plastic stick got into it. I am waiting on the new pump now.)
If there is nothing in the first hose or the pump, see if anything is in the hose leading to the drain.

If not, they suggested something either purchasing a new pump as it may have quit working or something may have gotten stuck in between the tubs. This requires tearing apart and sometimes special tools.

Spinning cycle


Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

Water running out from under the washer


sounds like two seperate problems. firsst water running from under your machine might be a bad seal, or water could be backing up the drain line. i would guess that it is a plumbing problem because of theissue with water in the sink. have a plumber snake out the drain lines and the problem with the washer should disappear.

Washer won't spin


Maybe when you were behind the machine, you did not refit the outlet pipe at the correct height; this is a height approx. 3 feet from the ground or more. Your pump pumps the water OVER this height.

You said it does not spin; you shd check out your outlet filter and clean it. If this is clogged the machine will not spin. All the best!
