Hello - Is the washer drain pump now experiencing a humming noise? If so, you possibly have a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. Supposing that it does not, then it could have possibly caused an issue with either the pump or timer. From this point, honestly I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately since it is such a complex unit.

SOURCE: Will fill with water but during rinse and spins it won't drain.

I fixed it on my own. By taking off the suction hose and spinning the fan inside it apparently dislodged something and is working now. Hopefully the problem won't come back, I was unable to find the foreign object.

SOURCE: Won't spin after wash cycle or rinse cycle

CHECK THE FOLLOWING---


1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Take off the back of the machine. Locate the water pump, it will have the drain hose attached to it. Remove the water pump and take it apart. You should find your screw and maybe some other things. If the water pump is not damaged reinstall and everything should be working.

Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer: I find water in the drum after i have washed cloth...


Check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

How abt a nice rating for the free help? Thnks

Water begins to drain into the detergent drawer but does not drain into drum fast enough so the drawer area begins to fill and then begins to spill out of the drawer area all over the floor. If I press...


remove the drain pump and check out.
This is inevitably caused by a blockage. The small fabric conditioner compartment in the soap dispenser drawer has a removable plastic cap. This cap fits on the top of a tube which has a hole running through it where the water should siphon through.

When the time comes for the fabric conditioner to be released, cold water enters the small compartment and just washes the conditioner over the top and down the dispenser to the tub. When the water stops flowing, all that is left is the clear water. This water should siphon up the inside of the cap and down the tube.

This tube often gets blocked with the conditioner and if you remove the dispenser drawer and take off the cap you can give the whole thing a good clean out. If the cap is missing, the siphoning will not occur.

To test the function, hold the soap drawer under the tap and allow the water to fill the fabric compartment to overflowing. When you turn off the tap, the remaining water should slowly siphon out of the hole under the cap.

its the problem in the pump and something is getting blocked in the pump so water is not getting out.

  1. Unplug the washer. Remove the three screws along the bottom of the toe panel and pull the panel forward to remove it.
  2. Put your bucket or towels under the drain pump. Open the pump slowly so the water doesn't all spill out at once. If you have a wet/dry vacuum, you can connect it to the drain hose to remove the water from the washer before opening the pump.
  3. Open the door covering the pump wiring and disconnect the wiring.
  4. Remove the two drain lines from the pump.
  5. Remove the screw that attaches the pump to the washer frame and pull out the pump.
  6. if the pump is leaky or cracked it needs replacement.

Electrolux dishwasher won't drain. Not a clog in the outlet hose or drain pipe.


The drain hose on a washing machinemag-glass_10x10.gif connects the drain pump to a stand pipe, a U-pipe under the sink, or another place for draining dirty water into the sewer. If your washer won't drain properly, the problem is sometimes an object blocking the drain hose, like a pair of underpants, a child's sock, or pieces of something that broke up in the washer.
  1. Unplug the washer and put the plug on top of the machine to keep it out of any spilled water.
  2. Step 2 Take any wet clothes out of the washer and bail the water out of the drum with the bucket. The washer may be too heavy to move if it's full of water and wet clothing.
  3. Step 3 Pull the washer out from the wall enough for you to get behind it.
  4. Step 4 Remove the plate from the back of the washer by taking out all the screws. Different brands and models of washers vary in how many screws hold on the back plate, and not all models require removing the plate to get to the pump where the hose is attached.
  5. Step 5 Locate the drain hose. Of the three hoses coming out of the back of the washer, the drain hose is the largest in diameter and is attached to a drain pipe instead of a faucet.
  6. Step 6 Check the drain hose for kinks and bends. These are often the cause of a blocked or slow-running drain hose.
  7. Step 7 Remove the drain hose from the washer by detaching it from the drain pump. You will need a screwdriver or a slide-lock wrench to open the clasp that holds the hose to the pump, depending on what type of clasp it is.
  8. Step 8 Keep the bucket nearby to catch any water that comes out of the drain pump when you remove the hose.
  9. Step 9 Remove the other end of the house from the pipe it drains into.
  10. Step 10 Bend the clothes hanger open so you can use it to poke inside the hose. Push or pull out the material that's causing the blockage.
  11. Step 11 Replace the hose and run the washer to check if it's clear.

Slow spin, water under the front of my washer


Hi,

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.

Good Luck!!

Water is always left in the machine when the cycle finishes


Because the water pump operates as a timed cycle, a partially blocked water passage either from the outer drum to the pump, inside the pump, or from the pump to the house drain is restricting the amount of water being pumped. Remove the drain hose from the house drain just enough that you can watch the water flow during a normal pump cycle. The water should be coming out quite forcefully--if just a trickle, then something is blocking the flow. Look for kinked hoses or even a slow running pump.

Fridgidaire Gallery Series Front Load washer won't drain or spin


It sounds like there may be 2 things wrong. If the drier is not draining then the pump is clogged. Remove the drain hoses and check the pump(IMPORTANT!!!!Before you remove the hoses get a pan to put under the hoses. Alot of water will go on the if you do not do this...)The pump most likely has a coin in it.
The klunk you heard... If the drum spins and seems to be out of balance. If could be your rear bearing or your spider bracket.
