    You will need a wet/dry vac to get as much of the water out as possible. There really is no other way. Even if you get most of the water out and remove the drain pump hoses there will be a good amount of water. You might try putting a wet/dry vav on the end of the drain line and see if you can get as much water out as you can and it may pull the blockage thru.

You will need to pull the drain pump and look for an article of clothing hung up in there.

SOURCE: My washer will fill up and drain, but it wont agitate or spin

hi friend,
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.

SOURCE: My Kenmore Washing Machine wont drain or spin. Only a slight hum.

This problem is commonly attributed to a lid switch malfunction. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the lid switch is mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. The humming sound you hear when the lid is closed may just be the timer motor running. If your washer is not configured in this manner, please post back with your COMPLETE model number (located along the tub rim under the lid) so I can confirm how your washer IS configured. I hope this helps you.

If you determine that your lid switch is broken, please let me know and I will provide you with the steps necessary to repair it yourself (simple repair job). I can also give advice on where to purchase a replacement.

NOTE: Placing heavy objects on the washer lid can cause the lid to bow and also affect the way it contacts the lid switch.

SOURCE: wont fill with water

Check the hose filters, open the valve with the hose disconnected to make sure you have good pressure. Your water control valve may be bad, but both sides don't usually go bad at once.

SOURCE: washer won't spin makes banging sound

remove the agitator. there is a cone shaped block on the agitator shaft and locked to the tub via a large lock nut. spin tube has 2 tabs that lock into slots on top of block. these can strip out and cause the spin tube to spin inside block. watch it and turn machine on spin. tub can also drop and drag on bottom of outer tub. if this is it replace block and gently straighten tabs on spin tube.

The tray drawer is opperated via a "Belt" off a drive motor. The hum is good as it would appear the drive moyor is working, but it would appear the drive belt as come off or snapped.

Washer will fill with water but will do nothing else


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
When the dishwasher fills then it means that the control and the water inlet valve are fine, try to hear a different sound like a hum/buzz/click sound. If it is like a hum sound from the bottom panel then it indicates that the motor is bad and needs replacement and if the hum/click comes from the control then it is the timer that is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Washer fills, then just hums for about two minuts and shuts down


Hello
The hum sound is coming from the motor that is probably bad and needs replacement. Hope you understand...the washer fills with water which indicates that the control and the water inlet valve are both fine however, as after this you hear a hum sound it means that the motor is bad. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Water keeps going and going and going!


the water is draining back to the ocean. The drain hose was not emptied properly from its last use. Put the machine in spin cycle (about 5 minutes) only to spin out the water from the outer tub completely and retry washer. If still problem, then visual check drain hose that it still has a "rising" section higher in altitude than the water level of inner tub (when working properly) before it makes a U-turn downward to send back to the ocean. You can also test the drain hose by putting machine in fill mode and crimping off the hose (fold hose over) to simulate a good drain hose. At this test, you should not "feel" water running through the hose if successfully crimped.
