Check the water pump. It could be clogged with clothes or the pump is just not working which would require replacing.

My model is zanussi easy iron washing machine capacity 6 kg spin 1400 ,my problem is that clothes are not getting dried, water remains in the clothes, what is the problem .


Your washing machine has a problem with the water unless it is washer-dryer. Water remains in the appliance because drain pump is not functioning properly and laundry is wet.

Tip

Winterizing a Washing Machine


If you keep your washer in area where you need to winterize for the winter (unheated garage or unoccupied vacation home), the following steps may provide you with some helpful guidance in preparing before extreme temperatures occur and possibly leave you with damaged plumbing and/or a ruined appliance.<br /> <br /> <b><u>TOP LOADERS</u></b>:<br /> <br /> 1. Turn off the main water supply to both water taps.<br /> <br /> 2. Remove the fill hoses, drain them of all water and reinstall them - leave water supply turned OFF.<br /> <br /> 3. Add 1 gallon of Recreational Vehicle (RV) antifreeze (non-toxic) to an empty wash tub.<br /> <br /> 4. Select the DRAIN/SPIN function on the timer and allow the washer to run for one minute to drain the antifreeze from the wash tub, and any water remaining in the drain pump or drain lines. <br /> <br /> NOTE: Not all the antifreeze will drain. A small amount will remain in the drain pump and line (this is normal).<br /> <br /> 5. STOP or CANCEL the timer on the washer and UNPLUG.<br /> <br /> 6. Wipe down and dry the wash tub.<br /> <br /> 7. Clean the detergent dispenser and fabric softener dispenser and ensure they are dry.<br /> <br /> 8. Store washer, unplugged in an upright position.<br /> <br /> <br /> <b><u>FRONT LOADER</u></b>:<br /> <br /> 1. Turn off the main water supply to both water taps.<br /> <br /> 2. Remove the fill hoses, drain them of all water and reinstall them - leave water supply turned OFF.<br /> <br /> 3. Add 1 gallon of Recreational Vehicle (RV) antifreeze (non-toxic) to an empty wash tub.<br /> <br /> 4. Select the DRAIN/SPIN function on the timer and allow the washer to run for one minute to drain the antifreeze from the wash tub and any water remaining in the drain pump or drain lines. <br /> <br /> NOTE: Not all the antifreeze will drain. A small amount will remain in the drain pump and line (this is normal).<br /> <br /> 5. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to halt the cycle and UNPLUG the appliance.<br /> <br /> 6. Wipe down and dry the wash tub.<br /> <br /> 7. IMPORTANT: Check the perimeter of the door bellow (gray rubber seal) and make sure no small articles of clothing are left in the rubber folds. Clean this area thoroughly and dry. NOTE: Anything left behind will mildew over a period of time causing foul odors.<br /> <br /> 8. Clean the detergent dispenser drawer of any remaining water or fabric softener residue.<br /> <br /> 9. Store washer, unplugged in an upright position.<br /> <br /> <b><i><u>Secondary Method</u></i></b>: <br /> <br /> If you cannot find RV antifreeze (or prefer not to use it), another method of draining the washer is to remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line with a wet/dry shop vac. This will pull any remaining water from the drain pump and lines. <br /> <br /> If a shop vac is not available, lowering the drain hose from the standpipe to the floor will allow it to drain using simple gravity. <u>IMPORTANT</u>: On a front loader, you may have to remove the drain line from the drain pump to drain the pump. Or, use the access cover (if equipped). Most front loader pumps are accessed by removing the lower panel directly below the door.<br /> <br /> <b><i><u>Taking the Washer out of Winter Storage</u></i></b>:<br /> <br /> To remove antifreeze from the washer following storage, run the appliance on a complete cycle with detergent and NO garments added.<br /> <br /> I hope you find this information helpful. If you have any questions, please let me know.<br /> <br /> <br />

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..

Won't drain or spin


Hi jm irons - most washer will not spin as long as the water remains inside, first thing is to check why the drain pump has not operated, water levels are controlled by the pressure switch or laymans term water level control, when water drains it closes a built in switch and enables the spin cycle circuit and machine advances to next stage of program.

Frigidaire (LTF2940E) Washer starts, stops, starts, stops...


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Whirlpool washing machine (model LLR 9245 B) does not work


If it's a top loader, the coupler is broken. It's located between the motor and the gearcase. If you put it in spin and hear the motor run, this is your problem. It drains because the pump is mounted on the opposite side of the coupler and will be un-affected

The tub never starts to spin when it hits spin cycle.


If your washer functions when the door is shut it cannot be a door problem. The likely thing here is you may have a drain problem....your drain oulet filter (or out pump) could be blocked. This requires cleaning; when the washer goes thru all the functions except spin it is most likely your drain is clogged. Aft u have cleaned the filter & pump check by a small spin. Before you attempt, wall socket off & keep bucket handy to collect water.
