It could be as well a clogged drain line. Don't replace the pump before checking it. Good luck!

How do I run a diagnostic test?


The SD error can mean a couple things. Suds detected, this happens when using the incorrect wash soap. It has to have the "he" logo on the packaging. I know because I used the wrong soap. My clothes would spin but not drain the water. It gave me the SD error. But it can also mean that there is clog or something in the drain hose or drain pump. I had my husband raise up the washer so I could check the hoses for baby socks or ridiculous amounts of dog hair. I found a clump of polyfil from a dog bed right at the intake of the drain pump. I removed it but still no luck. It seems the drain pump was burned up or working at a seriously compromised position. He removed the pump for me and I ordered a new one on Amazon prime. I searched for exact model and oem drain pump. It came in today and I installed it myself. Finally, after a couple weeks I was able to wash and dry towels in one whack! I figured all this out by coming here and searching for a free service manual for my make and model. The service manual really goes in depth on making repairs and it was easy to understand. It gives you the error code, possible reasons and how to fix or troubleshoot them. I had numerous problems with my cabrio and as of tonight, I have over more then to fix and it is probably polyfil related! Good luck.

My Zanussi WJD 1257 washer/dryer's drying cycle has started finishing early. No error codes. The wash cycle works fine but the drying cycle is simply stopping prematurely. You can set it to dry for 45...


Good Day,
Your washing machine is fully automatic?
the washing cycle is normal?
if yes do the same maybe it will help you.
for the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
Remove drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any small item that coz of clog up.
if your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running? the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or water stuck,
if the drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.

Water does not drain


see this causes:

It spins, but doesn't pump
drain line clogged, ome sock in the outer tub, use pliers for large hose and pull out,test the pump can be faulty.
It doesn't spin or pump
frozen pulley pump, replace, move manually see the diagram, if not replace
It pumps, but the water returns
improve the drain line, if the drain hose reach the 4 inch cut of the excess, if is lower, install air/gap siphon break assembly.
God bless you

Spin cycle isnt not working


Hi there,

The spin cycle is reliant on the drain pump removing water from the tub.

It is a common ocurrance of objects (ie hair pins, pegs, coins etc) to be mistakenly washed through the cycle. Washing machines will often flush these objects down through the drain pump, and get caught in the little propeller of the pump.

So, it is imperative that you inspect the drain pump first and remove any obstruction within the drain pump cavity.

Turn machine power OFF at the wall and remove the power plug.

i) place an empty bucket on the floor
ii) lower the drain HOSE into the bucket - gravity will cause the water to drain into the bucket. Empty the bucket. Perform this procedure until all water has been emptied from the bowl.
iii) move the washing machine out from the wall, to gain access to the drain pump (usually a large screwcap). Place a large towel on the floor, under the screwcap - this will catch any remaining water that escapes.
iv) unscrew the drain pump cap and withdraw the cap. This cap may also contain a filter, so remove any lint/objects from this filter.
v) with the pump cap/filter removed, look inside the pump cavity and remove any visible obstruction from the impellar (little propeller thing). Then, with your finger, turn the little impellar in both directions - if you feel a 'rubber band' like resistance, then the drain pump may be ok at this point.
vi) remove all wet clothes from the machine bowl.
vii) re-assemble the drain pump cap/filter and secure it in place. Install drain hose back into your laundry tub. Plug machine back into power.
viii) fill the bucket with water and pour water back into your machine's bowl. Repeat with a 2nd bucket of water.
ix) manually select and operate SPIN cycle on the machine. Observe if drain pump functions correctly and empties water from the bowl. If yes, then you have resolved the problem.

If your pump has been cleared of all obtstructions but your machine will still not empty water from the bowl, then a full diagnostic will need to be carried out by an authorised service agent to determine which component has failed.


Let me know how you get on.....

Good Luck..

DRAIN PUMP DOESN'T COME ON. WATER WILL NOT DRAIN ON ALL CYCLES.


Hi.

The drain pump does not fail very often. If you are sure that the pump does not start check first the pressure switch and the lid switch. The pressure switch is the sensor that determines when to start stop the drain pump. The switch is difficult to test. Try first cleaning the pressure hose connected to the switch. The lid switch is checked before entering in the last part of the cycle. Lid switch can be tested reading impedance at its contacts or jumping it. Check it just in case. If all that is OK check pump motor and control unit.
If you are not sure if pump is starting or not check for drain blockage at pump and at drain nose. Blockage is the most common cause for drain problems.

Regards.

The start light flashes continuously without interruption. It doesn't pause after 7 flashes. Dishwasher will not run.


Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

My Kenmore washing machine is agitating and spinnig on wash cycle. When it gets to the spin cycle, the agitator does not spin. The coupler is fine, what can be the problem?


Hi.

When machine does not advance to Spin, the problem is either related to motor and motor control faults, to drain problems, or to agitator itself.

The first step in troubleshooting is checking if the machine is draining or not.

If the machine does not complete drain cycle before advancing to spin, then it is a drain related problem.
  • If the problem is drain related, inspect the drain hose at the back of the machine as a first thing.
  • Access the drain pump, and undo hose from the drain pump. Check filter if present, and remove eventual blockage in there. This procedure is usually illustrated in the user manual. Before accessing the pump disconnect power.
  • Test the drain pump itself (try to understand if it running or not).
  • If pump and lines are good, then the pressure switch that determines water level must be tested and eventually replaced.

If there is no problem with drain system the rest must be tested.

The variable speed motor and the motor control unit (internal module connected to motor and to main control) must be tested. Main control unit must also be tested at last.
This parts are more difficult to test. Part of the testing is done reading Volts and working with live power, or jumping devices to understand if they were causing the problem. this part of the testing must be done by a technician.
If motor, MCU, and electronic control (CCU) are fine, then the problem may be mechanical.
In your case you stated that you have a motor coupler, and that motor and coupler are fine.
The first part to test is the drain system, the ultimate test will be bypassing the pressure switch to check if that was causing the problem. As said this kinds of test must be done by a technician (I have to mention this).

As you will probably know , parts and diagrams are available at Sears Parts & Accessories Website .

Best regards.

The first question you need to ask yourself is, "is the drain pump running?" If you can hear the drain pump running when it tries to drain, then more than likely you have a clogged drain pump, or drain line. Here's how you can determine which one: You can check the drain line by seeing if it collapses when the pump starts to run. If it does, then you know you have a clogged line somewhere BEFORE the pump. This usually means an article of clothing has gotten between the wash basket and outer tub and is stuck in the line. If the line is full of water and doesn't seem to be going anywhere, hook up a wet/dry shop vac to the drain hose in the rear of the machine to see if you can pull water from the tub, through lines, and through the pump. If you can't, you know you probably have a clogged pump, or drain line AFTER the pump. If the drain pump does not come on, you may have a pump failure. In either case, you need to drain the water from the tub. A wet/dry shop vac does a great job at pulling water from the tub, so you don't have to bail. Let me know if this helps.
