Model Wm2496HSM will not spin and drain


Jodie, the OE fault is a drain problem. First thing to look at is the pump coin trap on the bottom of the washer behind the little door. If the washer has water in it, pull out the little hose, remove the stopped at the end and drain into a shallow bucket. When the water stops, removed the trap by twisting the trap handle counter clock wise. If it is full of "stuff" clean it and reinstall it. If it is clean, then you either have a bad pump or something stopping the pump.

Asko 10625 washing machine wont drain or open


Take the bottom panel off and there is a large drain under the drum. There will be a lot of water that comes out, so be prepared. When you take the drain off, there should be a debis trap in there. Clean this out look to make sure there are no socks or anything in there.

GE washing machine makes clicking noise and wont agitate. It will drain and spin


Hello.


If your washer is indeed a WBSE3120B, than the not spinning is directly relatedto the unit not draining.

These machines by design cannot spin if the drain is inadequate.

Here is the first step in resolving the problem, you need to access the drainpump/filter to clean it.

To reach the filter and clean it...

**Unplug the washer from the dryer or wall, or turn off the 30amp breakerat the home service panel...safety first**

1) Open the small square plastic door at the right bottom of thewasher.

2) Via the small hose drain any access water from the pump...this is where awet/dry shop-vac comes in handy, or a shallow pan with a few towels works a swell.

3) Then turn the pump insert/button trap counter clock-wise and pull out.Clean the trap out thoroughly running it under hot water and mild soap or your washer detergent and inspect inside the pump for any other foreignobjects/obstructions.

4) Re-install the lint trap insuring it is good and snug/tight. Before closing up the small access door, run a short rinse spin cycle to check for leaks.

Let me know how you make out, or if you require further assistance.

Thank you for visiting our site please take a moment to rate the infoprovided for you here.

Thanks.

Will not drain...but is turning....i tried to reset by pushing the red button and did nothing...i took the L wrench and turned it from the bottom and still nothing...sink is full of water too..what can i...


1) If disposal will not drain: Clean the tubular drain under sink.
Remove 2 nuts on p-trap, and trap falls loose, then remove tailpiece on side of disposal, hand rag over opening to direct water downward, turn on water, turn on disposal and see if disposal empties, clean p-trap, and then reassemble tubular drain.

2) If disposal will not drain and will not run: Clean tubular drain, check for power to disposal.
If disposal is getting power and will not run, and reset button is not tripped out, and cutter disk rotates freely, then disposal is bad.

I wrote ez disposal replacement steps that include tips for tubular drain.

My washer wont agitate or spin


kind of a vague description, but likley cause is a bad or clogged drain pump, not allowin water out to spin, removing bottom cover will gain oyou acess to "button trap" portion of pump housing..

uunscrewing "button trap" willallow you to clean oout debris, but be warned that any wate in tub however little or lot there isin machine will also be coming out as well.i genreally grab a black plastic garbage bag and surround the opening prior to unscrewing the trap cover to catch the deluge of immenent water!!!!

usually determine this as well, if by turning off water supply, then select the "drain spin" cycle. Start the machineand in a bout10 secs or so youll usually hear teh pupmp activate, but instead of mvoving/drain water it simply sits ther HUMMING..

My furnace will not start the ignition process unless I disconnect the pressure switch (combustion tube not blower tube). What could be the cause? It's a new pressure switch. The vent pipe is clean.


I assume when you say you disconnect the pressure switch you mean you jump the wiring terminals? You say your vent is clean,but what about your combustion air inlet piping? Is it clear. It is not unusual for a furnace to sit over the summer and have the condensate drain trap dry out. This drain will drain the condensation from the blower and discharge to drain. If there is no water in the trap, it can allow air to flow up through the drain, which will cause a drop in the negative pressure. Try "priming" the trap by pouring enough water down drain hose until water comes out by the drain. If that doesn't work check to be sure motor is going full speed and that there are no creatures that have crawled into your inlet piping over the summer.

My washer wont drain the water gives me a E20 meassage how do I fix this


Use a wet drry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove all the water.Then you need to remove the front panel and door boot gasket to get at the drain pump remove the hoses from the drain pump and check for any obstructions.
the will also be a plastic coin trap in the black boot that comes down from the bottom of the tub this may also need to be clean out. if there are no obstructions then the door lock or the drain pump needs to be replaced. but removeing any obstructions should solve this problem

Display show f21 and it wont drain


the f21 code actually is a no drain code....the machine has an electric pump behind the cover on the bottom with a lint trap in it....just unscrew the lint filter from the pump(there will be alot of water coming out when you take this out) and clean the trap and that should take care of your problem

I have whirlpool duet ghw9100lq does not start only flashing


select pause/cancel twice if it still does not unlock. It is not unlocking because of water still in the system, run the drain spin cycle manually if that does not work you will have to clean out the lint trap and the water left inside will drain on your floor. To clean the lint trap. there is a panel at the bottom front of the washer. along the bottom of the washer there are three torx type screws to remove the panel these will be above the drawer unit if you purcased the stand. remove the panel by lifting from the bottom. then in the center you will see a plastic cap. twist the cap to remove. this is your lint filter. it pulls out and has a cup shaped piece attached to it pay attention to how it comes out im not sure if you can put it in wrong. clean the area out. there may be some water to spill out depending on how much is clogged in your system. replace the cap once you have cleaned it out this should help with your problems.
