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.

It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a dish-washing machine, due to food waste clogging the drain. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced.If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.
Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.
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
There is a high possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.

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.

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.
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.
