I would check the pump.
Follow the drain hose back to the pump, disconnect the outlet hose from the pump and disconnect the inlet hose from the pump. Look inside both hoses and the pump for pillow pieces.

The pump may have to be removed for cleaning, you should be able to turn the pump by hand, if not, replace the pump.

Inner tub.
Run some water in the washer with the inlet hose disconnected from the pump. You'll need a pan or bucket for the water to run into and look for pillow pieces.

Duck Feather Pillow In Washer. Feathers everywhere. door will not unlock or drain water. help


Pull off the lower front panel and reach up on the right of the washer to the door lock assembly you will feel a tab hanging down pull it and the door will release. Clean out the drain filter and pump hoses etc. Rise it out and you may have to clean the filter a few times.

My wife washed a pillow full of Styrofoam balls and it broke inside the washer. Now we have the little balls in every load, How do we clean it once and for all ?


The only thing you can do is to keep putting it through a rinse cycle.

If there is a filter you can check, do so after each rinse cycle, and eventually it will clear itself..

A feather pillow busted during the cycle - What do I need to do to prevent damage?


either you have overloaded the machine or else your spin speed was set on high, lower it down and it should not happen next time.Make sure there is nothing broken inside the tumble or the spinning area...

Water Won't Drain from Washing Machine


Hello phylislw61,
If you had an incident where a pillow broke and feathers where dispersed throughout the washer..then there is a good chance that teh drain fiilter screen, pump or hose feeding the pump is clogged. I would verify that the filter is free from anything that would limit water flow from getting to the pump.. then if the problem is still there.. examine the pump itself to make sure it isn't clogged...
If you or someone in your family is reasonably handy, here is a link to your washing machines exploded view and parts and this should provide sufficient information for how to access the pump and associated hoses etc that feed into and out of it for cleaning..
If you are having problems after you verify the lines are free of restriction, feel free to contact me and I will try to assist you in solving your problem.. Here is the link..

I washed a feather pillow and it busted, now it wont pump water out.


There is a filter down in the bottom front of the washer (below the drum) that is probably clogged with feathers. It is a pain to get to, but once you get it cleaned out, the washer should spin and drain without problems.
