How do I fix water not staying in the wash tub of Twin tub, LG WP 750R?


If your drain is not high enough the water will siphon out while filling. Check your owner's manual for correct height, usually about 39 inches from ground

GOOD DAY I would like to know if this machine can run without the drain pump motor? Its a LG WP9916PT twin tub washing machine. Or where can i find a new pump?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I doubt that any washer will continue unless the drain motor is able to drain water. Many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.

Spares Suppliers
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer spares' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can order. Alternately you could try telephone directories for spares suppliers but I would think the former would be more successful.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My kenmore 70 series will not drain after it went througth the wash sicale. Does whis mean the timer is bad? Is there a way to check it to be shure before a person orders a part? Thank You!!!


Hello. I can help you.

If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can 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--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock 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. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

  • If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


  • If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

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

Hitachi twin tub spin dryer won't spin and pump out water if I have more than two light items in it. The washer is perfect and I love it. Does it have a belt for the spin that needs tightening or what...


you probably have a sock or some other item in the bottom of your spin tub that is blocking the flow of water out of your spin tub an that prevents the spinner from spinning properly you need a wire long enough to reach in there and remove whatever is blocking it

There's no reset switch that I know of. This particular model has a belt driven pump with no electrical connection. Changing the timer is not going to do anything. It cost about $50 to $60 if you find it to be bad and need to replace it. You can find parts for your washer at repairclinic.com. Just type in your model number and you will be provided a pictorial parts listing. This is a bit premature, you may just have a broken drive belt. But...you have that full tub of water. If you just need to drain the tub in order to make repairs, here's a couple of suggestions that I have used:

1. If you own a small submersible pump, you can drain the tub quickly by placing the pump in the bottom of the tub and run a garden hose outside or into a deep sink (if available). Ensure you have removed all wet clothing to make sure you don't clog the pump.

2. Another method is to remove the drain line from the standpipe and use a wet/dry shop vac to pull a vacuum. This will work if the pump isn't lodged with anything. This method is going to be slower if you don't have a vacuum of large capacity. These wash tubs generally hold about 35 gallons of water. So...if you have a 10 gallon capacity shop vac, you may have to empty it 3 or 4 times before you get all the water out. If the pump is clogged, you can still drain directly from the tub.

If you don't own either, I would recommend that you obtain one or the other somehow. Unless, you wish to try to bail all that water by hand. You will need to empty the washer of all this weight in order to check the drive belt as most Maytags have their drive belts system UNDER the washer. I wouldn't try tipping the washer back with a full tub of water. I hope this helps you. Post back with comments if you need further assistance.
