Washing Machine wont drain

I have an older washing machine that drains water for the most part.

It still leaves about 4-5 inches of water in the bottom of the machine, which when we get ready to empty the clothes and put them in the dryer we have to ring everything out by hand which takes even longer.

I have already checked the drain hose and it is clear. I have noticed though that if you put it on spin cycle, and then open the lid, it DOES NOT stop like it does on most machines. I know when you open it it is supposed to stop doing whatever it is doing, but this machine is NOT doing this.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!

Tip

The washing machine is draining but the water is coming back inside?


Check out this possibilities for water not draining in the washing machine: This problem relates to the hose connected to drain pump. The drain hose should not be in laundry tub more then 4 to 5 inches. Measure it and if it’s more then 4 to 5 inch then cut the excess hose in the tub. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly. But if the drain pump hoses are ok checked then this problem relates to slow drain of water from laundry tub. You can solve this issue by cleaning the drain pump blockages and dirt build up this will make the flow of water proper in the draining of the laundry tub.
This will help.thanks.

The washer leaves water remaining in drum after the entire wash cycle, it becomes stale and makes my clothes that I was smell. My father's front loader, GE, does not leave any water in the drum


Hello

Check the drain tube,it needs to be 30 inches above the floor.

Also if the drain tube from the washer is too far into the drain the washer will not drain completly.The drain tube should be 1 inch into the wall drain.

Also check for kinks or obstructions in the washer drain tube.

No spin


If anyhow the drain pump is blocked the spinning will be blocked. Check for a forrign object in the drain pump. If you can feel/hear it buzz (very quietly) while it should be pumping out it might be jammed up with something. That however is kind of rare with the angled tub the Neptune uses.
Are you sure the machine is actually not pumping out, or is it possible its just turning off in the rinses?
Reason I'm asking is the control will shut the machine down if its taking too long to fill up. Many times it will fill fine for the wash fill, but because the rinse takes twice the ammount of water it activates the system and shuts down while its half way filled. Look for a slow cold water fill for that problem.

Is the door locking in the spin? One very common problem on the older 3000 and 4000 series machines is the R11 resistor on the machine control board bruning out leaving the door lock inoperative. If the door won't lock, it won't spin. I do believe, however, the machine will still pump out. But many times what happens is the pump removes all the standing water, but without spinning everything in the tub stays soaked. The saturated clothing drains the water out and then leaves a few inches in the bottom of the tub.

If you have the newer style Neptune (with the control panel on the front of the machine) only the top paragraph applies.

Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

HE3T Kenmore Frontload Washer Random Draining Problems


The water pumped goes right back into the machine. It may be because the washer is siphoning the water from the laundry tub with a slow drain and back. Your solutions are advised but try this also:
  1. Check the pump impeller for obstruction.
  2. Cut the drain hose into the laundry tub in excess of 4 inches.

Water will not drain out


It sounds like the drain tube is partly clogged.
If you have a shop-vac you could try that. Try to set dishwasher back on discharge,see if water gose out the second time. if it still dont go out it is clogged. goodluck

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II does not completely drain.


Mine will do this if clothes are left in it for a long period of time. The pump will not drain all water out because the will dry out the seals if they do. Your wet clothes dripped in the tub raising the water level to the bottom of the drum and that is why you have wet clothes. Remove clothes as soon as they are done, use cycle signal to avoid this.

I, Just got a new washing machine about 2 weeks ago it is a indesit WIB101. The Problem Is That When The washing is finished, the next day it still has 3-4 inches of water left in the bottom of the drum


i bassume the water is coming in after cycle finished. source can be two things.
water valve leaking - not probable on a new machine but to check, turn water off and see if water comes in.
if drain is plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap, when you empty the sink, some of the water will go down the drain hose. to cvure, take the drain hose up in a swan neck as high as possible

Draining prob


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (4 to 6 inches maximum). Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
