I am replacing the drain pump on my Servis M9813 Washer Dryer.
The new pump is a plaset SER518002800.
On the old pump, the two terminals are seperate and clearly marked as Live and Neutral. On the new one, the two terminals are together and not marked at all.
How do I tell which is which?
What happens if I get them the wrong way round?
Will it just run the wrong way and not empty?
Will it short and burn out?
Or will it not matter?
Any help would be appreciated

Re: Drain Pump wiring
Welcome to Fixya.This is an easy one to solve. It does not matter which wire you put on the terminals, as they are both common, that is to say the feed goes in and out again, so you can quite happily put which wire on either terminal.It will work and run the correct way regardless.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks,and a MERRY XMAS.

You will need to gain access to the drain pump through the bottom of the Washing machine. Remove the Drain hoses from the pump, clear any debris, change, etc. If it is clear, or the error continues after clearing, replace the drain pump.
If you replace the drain pump and it still won't drain, you will need a new Control Board.
Hi If the washer is not draining then it is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. If it still doesn't work then you would need to replace the drain pump. Hope this helps... Daniel
You replace the whole drain pump. Pretty easy to do from the opening in the bottom by resting the unit on its back. (Make sure you drain the unit completely) You should be able to get the drain pump (pt #4681EA2001D) from http://www.encompassparts.com/lgconsumer/ for less than $50 + s&h.
If your washer spins but does not 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 is attached to the pump or even into
the pump itself. It it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from
the pump and pull the item out.
To remove the item 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. Using a
needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the stuck item through the
Check your washer for a frozen pulley. Remove the pump
from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't
turn freely, it's frozen, replace it.
If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back
after the spin cycle, your washer is 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.
Also check for these problems:
If the drain hose reaches more than 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut the excess.
If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
“F02” is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:
1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged. 2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running. 3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.
The easiest way woud be to go to K/Mart & buy a Crimp&connector set Around $8.00 In the auto section They have instructions on how to do what you want to put a new end on the wires.(in the auto section).Hope this helps Kind Regards Stefan.
Sounds like the pump is possibly faulty, or there is a blockage
There should be a removable plastic cover at the bottom front of the m/c, behind this you will see a round plastic cover.
This is the pump filter, unscreit and unblock it if it is full of ****!!!
Hopefully this should solve your problem.
Please leave feedback.
The drain pump is jammed or clogged up. Remove the filter cover and check for bobby pins, coins or bra wires. If clean, remove drum to pump hose from the pump and check for any foreign matter. Try to turn the pump impeller by hand. It should turn freely. If pump is not free, replace it.
If the machine fills and agitates but does not drain, something is probably wrong with the drain hose or the pump. The fact that the washer fills and agitates tells you that the motor works and the belt is okay (though some units have a separate belt for the pump and direct-drive washing machines don't have belts).
1) Be sure the drain hose isn't kinked.
2) Check the tab on the lid that strikes the lid switch; if it is broken, the washer may stop during the drain cycle. Press and release the lid switch: if it doesn't click each time you do this, it's probably broken. If you're experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repair service person.
3) The water pump may be broken or clogged with a small article of clothing or the controls may be broken; call an appliance repairperson.
