Change in drum/tub

The plastic tub has craked near the bottom drain opening. I have already had to replace the pump due to loose change making its way out of the metal drum and into the pump. I am assuming that this is has caused the crack in the tub. I know that I will need to repalce the tub but is there soemthing that should be preventing the loose change from leaving the metal drum? (besides my wife checking pockets more regularly)

6200 whirlpool cabrio, Ld error code. Usually, cancel, start corrects problems. Now seems like it won't spin. Tried unplugging and restarting, that also didn't work.


most likely a clogged pump drain find it below the drum usually under a plastic lid bottom left if not under the lower panel below the door

find the 3 screws and remove the cover panel and clean the pump by twisting the pump valve cover counter clockwise

WHIRLPOOL CABRIO WASHER ERROR LD The Cabrio Washer LD error code stands for Long Drain which means the control has recognized the water in the tub is not draining fast enough during the cycle.
  1. Make sure the pump and drain hose are clear of debris that would cause a blockage.
  2. Check the impeller on the drain pump and make sure its not wobbly or busted.
  3. Remove the tub hose from the pump to the tub and check it for blockage.
  4. Make sure the pump is running when and getting the proper voltage when it should be.
  5. If all the above checks out then replace the drain pump motor.

Washer will not drain


A maytag toploader that won't drain usually has one of only a few problems..
Open the machine by removing the 2 screws on the bottom of the front cover.
This will allow you to tip the front face forward from the bottom until it releases from the retainer clips on the top edge. This allows access to motor, pump, hoses, and belts.
Take the drive belts off the pulleys on the underside of the machine and inspect for damage, burn marks etc. replace if needed.
Inspect the pump (front right of base plate). The pump is transluscent so you can see if it's sucked a sock or something inside. Clear blockage if needed. Blockages usually cause the belts to burn. ... then you get a tub of water that won't drain.
If the belts are ok , and the pump is clear, squeeze the hose between the tub and pump and see if you can feel any blockage in the hose. Remove if necessary.
Lastly, if you take the 2 bolts from the top front corners out, you can tip the top of the machine back and expose the top of the drum. You can remove the cover and with a long piece of coat hanger wire with a small hook bent on one end, "fish between the inner and outer tub in the area near the drain hose. You may snag an article of clothing that went over the edge of the inner drum and is blocking the outer drum's drain.
Those are the main issues that will keep a Maytag from draining. Watch out for water leaking when you take those hoses loose!

Hi my washer does not drain properly. I think it used to pump the water out then spin the tub, but now the tube spins slowly when it is trying to pump the water out. Could something inside the transmission...


I would start with the simple possiblities first.
Remove the front cover (look for 2 phillips screws at the bottom of the front cover) Once you pull the screws, pull the bottom of the front cover forward until it disengages the two top retainer clips. This will expose the interior of the machine.
The pump is at the bottom right and has the hose from the drum attached and the other hose goes out the back of the machine.
The pump is opaque plastic and you can see if there's something jammed in the pump ( like a small sock). If it's "sucked a sock" it will jam the pump and will cause the drive belts (under the machine) to burn, stretch and not pump the water out. You can replace the belts by simply reaching under the machine and moving the electric motor a little.
If you've cleared the pump and changed the belts, try running the machine through a cycle with the front cover off and see if you've solved the problem..
with Maytag, this is usually the solution... If you're still not draining, you may have a small clothing article in between the inner tub and the outer tub... this will eventually block the drain on the outer tub and prevent water from getting pumped out..
You can use a straightened out coat hanger with a small hook bent on one end, take the top onf the machine loose (2 machine bolts hold the front corners down and tip it back away from the machine case. This will allow you to take the top cover off the outer drum exposing the space between the inner and outer drums. Take your "fishing rod" coat hanger and fish between the two drums on the right side near the drain hole... Most times you can snag and remove the blockage and pull it out.
Hope this solves your issue.. please let us know if we can help you further ...

I have a twenty year old Maytag washing machine that is leaking water out of the bottom of the machine. I have checked the hoses and it is not coming from there. Any ideas


hello. i can help you. unfortunately, your problem has numerous possible causes.
Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

  • Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.

  • The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.

  • Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.

During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

  • Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.

  • Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.

  • Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

Water leaking from under washer


Hi

You'll need to open the machine and check for the leaks in the hose connected to the drain pump. Also check if the clamp connecting the drain filter and hose is tight. Also check these things for leaks---

Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace.

Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you'll need to replace it.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa if found useful and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Maytag washer


sounds like you're suffering from the pump belt either stretched due to overload and overheating the belt, or the belt is off the pulley.
You can remove the front cover by removing two screws near the bottom of the front panel. Tip the bottom of the front panel outward and then disengage the upper clips as you pull forward. This exposes the pump, motor and you can reach underneath to the pulley and the belt. The motor spring holds the tension on the belt. If the belt is damaged, replace. Check the pump to make sure nothing got sucked inside... Maytag's pump are opaque plastic so you can see inside without removing the hoses... This is usually the reason for a tub that won't spin or drain... Good luck let me know.

Washer won't fast spin or drain


The drain line is probably clogged. Maybe that a small sock or other piece of clothing 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. To remove it 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 and try to remove the clothing through the port. Good luck
