The magnet connects to the outside of the pump. Aftertime it will come loose from vibration and use. Just resecure it with electric tape or something. The hose that connects to the pump is held in place by a simple hose clamp. Also there's a propeller inside the pump that can get knock out of place. Which will also leave you with a tub full of water. Reposition it with a ink pen or small screwdriver. To access the water pump remove the back panel, its located at the bottom of the drum.

Washer spins but doesn't get the water out


hi Ruth.
Washing Machine Won't Drain Water Last updated on November 7th, 2017
If your washing machine won't drain water out this article gives advice on how to fix it. If the washing machine has only just been plumbed in and it won't empty then check this article first - you might not need to drain or pull the washier out - won't drain after being moved or plumbed in. Otherwise, before trying to repair it you need to manually drain out the water that's stuck inside.
If your washing machine is stuck full of water because it's gone dead, or won't drain after being connected to a different u-bend you need to read the appropriate paragraphs in the how to drain washing machine link above before doing anything else.
What are the main causes of not draining? If the washer appears to be functioning normally but simply won't pump away the water these are the most common causes -
  • A blockage somewhere
  • Something jammed in the pump
  • Pump failure
  • An electrical fault
Is the water pump running - or not? On the spin cycle, is the pump running but water isn't being pumped out? If yes read on. There are two places to check for blockages. If the pump isn't running then jump to - If the pump isn't running.

Is the pump making a loud grinding noise?

If the pump is making a loud grinding noise, either constantly or intermittently, there is likely to be something inside being tossed around by the impeller. It's possible for a pump to have bearing failure but in most cases it will be an obstruction (such as a coin) stuck inside the pump. With the water drained out and pump filter removed it should be possible to see into the pump (where the impeller is) to check for obstructions.

Checking for blockages

Is the drain hose connected to the u-bend under the sink? If so try checking the spigot for blockages. Note that if you cannot hear the pump running don't bother. A blockage here would not stop the pump running, nor would it make the pump stop making its normal noise.
This is a simple fix, and can be done without moving the washing machine. The drain hose is connected to the u-bend by a plastic spigot pushed into the end of the drain hose. Unscrew the spigot to inspect inside. Also check inside the u-bend where the spigot screws on. A small button, or accumulated bits of stringy threads and lint from laundry can get stuck here. It takes surprisingly little to stop the water being pumped away at this point.

Check for a blocked pump filter

Next you need to check for blockages in the main pump filter if your washing machine has one. Most do. You will need to have drained out as much water as possible before removing the filter. Also, put down large bath towels before removing the pump filter to soak up the water that will inevitably come out.
Taking the filter out It should be easy to pull the filter out. If unsure check your instruction manual or the pump filter link above. If the filter appears jammed and won't come out read the advice in the pump filter article. Don't make the mistake of assuming that anything found in the filter will account for the fault. The pump filter would need to be physically blocked by something like a sock, or a buildup of lint to stop the washing machine from pumping out.
If all you find is a few buttons and coins this will not be the reason your washing machine isn't pumping the water. Only an object actually jamming the pump impeller or a substantial blockage of the filter would account for not draining.
If the pump isn't running The most common reason a pump isn't running is because an obstruction is physically jammed inside it. Check that the impeller turns and it's not jammed (or broken and loose on the shaft). It may have a little magnetic resistance at one point but it should be at the same point on each revolution.
The impeller should turn fairly easily. It might be possible to hear a gentle hum in place of the normal pump sound although not necessarily. A hum would indicate the pump his electrically OK and is trying to run but is jammed. With water drained out of the washing machine remove the filter and check for obstructions. If no pump filter is fitted the pump may need removing to check.

Pump isn't jammed

If the pump is not jammed then it needs testing with a continuity test meter for open circuit resistance across the pump's terminals. An open circuit pump is clearly faulty and needs replacing.
if none of the above helps you out you might have to call an engineer out.

Rince compartment won't fully drain


It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

Slow or no drain of water. cleaned out sump covers and ran drain cleaner thru cycle. looking for possible secondary filter.


Hi, if the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check the drain line and pump..

A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.

Your dishwasher pump ejects the water. The pump is usually mounted directly to the motor, then attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher, but first you need to remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support.
Look for an impeller--a round plastic fan blade-type of device that spins around. This is the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath the wash impeller is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. The drain impeller pushes the water toward the drain port. These components make up the pump. If any of the pump components are defective, you need to replace them.

Hope it helps...

My built in Nett Dishwasher - model no. S54M45X5GB - The water doesn't drain. We have tried solution to clear pipes but the water still isn't draining


You may have a bad pump but..... you should remove the hoses from the drain pump and see if you can turn the impeller by hand. Since this is an induction current magnetic rotation pump (lousy design in my book) any small bit of debris can lock the pump up. Remove the debris from the pump reconnect the hoses and see if it will drain.

You can see your pump here:

Hi,

Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Call a plumber if you cannot remove the clogs.

Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning or draining.

Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

Close the door completely. The washer will not operate if the door is not securely closed.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

Wahser stopped after wash cycle, burning smell


Hi, it is possible that something got into the pump and stopped it from turning. Let the drain hose down so that it drains into a bucket or a floor drain if possible.
If water does not drain then it is deffinetly plugged. Once you get the water out of the washer, tip it against the wall and try to remove the pump off the motor. There are two clips that hold the pump on. You will also need to remove the hoses.
With the pump off, you can set the washer back down and try to run the spin cycle. If the motor runs, it must be the pump.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Thanks

Water does not drain out from my washer


I have determined one of the reasons ( I feel this is the primary reason) why many BOSCH washing machines will not drain the water, Bosch uses the same drain pump in many of their 500-800 series washing machines, part number 436440. The drain pump is a electrical controlled magnetic driven pump. Simply a electrical current produces an electrical field which a magnet rotates, spinning the pump blades. I have determined that the internal seal on the pump part is allowing water to leak into the magnet area of the pump. This is causing corrosion, and water build up around the magnet, interfering with the magnetic field. How I came to this conclusion. After removing the end of the pump, and allowing the water to drain out, drying out the pump, the pump will work as advertised. But of course the pump cannot be used in this condition. A new pump is required. To determine this yourself, if the machine is not under warranty (good luck getting service). Unplug machine, remove back panel, unplug the drain pump, remove drain pump (separating the drain pump from the large plastic holder, there are three screws holding it to the housing). You can shake the pump, and if water comes out of it this is most likely the problem. Now hook the pump back up to its electrical feed, and place it on a rubber sheet. Set the machine to drain, if the pump attempts to spin then stops, or hums this is the problem.

Machine will not drain and spin


http://www.partstore.com/Part/LG+Electronics+Incorporated/LG+Electronics%2fZenith/4681EA2001D/New.aspx?ModelMfgName=LG+Electronics+Incorporated&ModelBrandName=LG+Electronics%2fZenith&ModelNumber=WM3431HW

you need a new one of these. i took mine COMPLETELY apart and found the impeller jammed. the impeller is a magnet in a sealed plastic carrier with an electro magnet around it. the electro magnet energizes , the two opposing fields spin the inner magnet ( just like a fish tank filter good idea actually!) the inner magnet on mine had a slight crack from factory causing vibration and allowing debris past the seal then jamming the impeller. to check yours drain it with the small drain tube, then get a towel or two and place around the unit at the floor.pull the large black drain cover off and after the gushing tidal wave look inside. you will see the white impeller. try turning it with w screw driver , pen or whatever. you may be able to remove and then clean / reassemble and be good as new. i only needed two tools to tear the machine apart. a Phillips screwdriver and pliers to get the clamps on the pump (2) and the clamp back on the door to drum gasket.
