Indesit draining problem

In the draining cycle there is a grinding noise and the machine does not drain. when you remove the filter the small white impeller from the back falls out also. I think this is the cause of the problem. Should the impeller be "fixed" somehow to the drive of the motor? i.e. has a small fiing grommet or similar been washed away....? Do I need to get a new impeller and if so from where?

Yes, it ought to be fixed on. Best plan is to take the motor off the back of the pump body, then do a web search on "Askoll Pump". Compare the one with the pictures on the other. Askoll pump motors are fitted to most UK machines these days, are easy to buy and fit, and a good deal cheaper than replacing the entire pump. If the motor doesn't look like an Askoll, a complete Indesit replacement Pump is a little under £30 on the net, so all is still not lost. A.

My washer just came to the end of the wash cycle and started making a loud grinding noise when it is time to drain. It won't drain.


from your description , there is something interfering with the impeller in the water pump
could be button, coin , hair clip, bra wire that has damaged the impeller blades
Rather than mess around trying to repair I would just get a new unit as the same time and difficulty is for both operations

Washer is making a grinding noise during the draining cycle and is not draining fully.


Hi Connie, The problem your describing is most likely the water pump. They have an impeller(encased propeller) that creates the force to drain the water out of the machine and if it breaks it would be very noisy and the washer would not drain. I hope this helps you out and good luck !

What is causing my Kenmore top washer to make a grinding noise before the rinse cycle?


Have you replaced the clutch or spin tube? There is a brake actuator that comes with the clutch kit and if this is broken it can make a very loud grinding or clacking sound.

Samsung SW60ASP washing machine won't spin or drain


5E is a Drain Error Code.

This can be caused by a clogged filter in the washing machine or a blocked drain line in your house. There can be a few other reasons, but these are the most likely.

If you would like to try to repair it yourself, then follow these instructions:

UNPLUG the washing machine. Repeat, UNPLUG the washing machine!!!

Check the filter in the back of the washing machine on the bottom right-hand corner. Place a shallow dish under the filter. Loosen the filter to drain out the water. Remove the filter and clean it out. Look at where you removed the filter and you will see the water pump impeller. Make sure it can move and isn't locked up. Remove any debris from the impeller.

Replace the filter, and plug in the machine. Try a short wash cycle.
Check for leaks around the filter.

Washing machine will not drain


Since you've already checked the pump, hoses and motor, here are some additional issues to look at:

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

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

Indesit iwc6145 washing machine all lights flashed now not spinning or draining??


see the causes and fix it. God bless you

Drain Pump Filter
This is the most common problem. Some have a small cover in the lower front put a screwdriver in the hole and turn counterclockwise to remove. There will be a cover to remove, water will come out so be prepared with a towel or wet vac. Clean this out. Other Machines will need to access the drain pump to get to the filter. This can be done by removing the back panel on some washers. On others you will need to remove the lower panel or complete front panel depending on model. The filter is located inside the large hose from the tub to the pump. Remove the hose and clean filter.

Drain Pump
The drain pump may have failed. If you hear it making noises you will need to remove the drain pump and check for obstructions, broken impeller, or not spinning freely. Remove obstructions if it does not spin freely replace the drain pump. If you hear it hum replace the pump if nothing is found inside. If no noise is heard check the pump for power. To do this remove the wire connectors and connect a voltmeter turn to a drain cycle, refer to tech sheet or service manual for proper voltage reading, usually any voltage would probally indicate a faulty pump. If no voltage to the pump replace the main control board.

Hoses
Check the hoses from the pump by disconnecting them and make sure there are no obstructions. Check your hoes drain, if it is a slow drain this can cause your washer to not properly drain.

When the washing machine is draining it starts to make a grinding noise


Hi.

Access the drain filter and check for foreign objects in there. In this model the access for the drain filter should be located at the front bottom of the machine, behind a trim. Other models have the access at the back. Disconnect power, locate access, remove cap, collect water using a container and check for blockage or foreign objects in there.

Regards.

Got an OE error, now it will not finish rinse and spin, sounds like it is grinding in the spin cycle and the timer is stopped at 27 minutes remaining. What is wrong?


The problem is in the drain system as what error code OE stands for.The grinding noise is coming from the drain pump. Loose change, hair pins and the likes can get into the pump filter and sometimes into the pump impeller causing a grinding noise during the spin cycle because the pump works while the machine is spinning. The pump impeller may also be broken causing the grinding noise.

Disconnect power then open the filter door on the bottom left of the cabinet.

Remove the drain plug and drain the water out completely into a shallow basin or the likes. Once drained, lay a piece of towel under the filter then turn the filter knob counterclockwise and remove it. Clean the filter and reach in the pump impeller to check it if blocked or broken. If cleaning the filter does not solve the problem, you need to access the drain pump assembly and check the pump particularly the impeller thoroughly.
