You need to access the drain pump, if the drain lines are all clean then it is likely a defective drain pump.

The drain pump must be tested before replacing it, by energizing it directly, this must be done by a technician, as there is high voltage in there.

Washer will not spin or pump


Have you tried to drain the drum manualy by opening the drain plug, normaly located on botom either in the front or the back.

when drained unplug the machine from the wall socket. then open the backcover, the drainpump are usually located next to drainplug. if not follow the hose connected to drain plug to get to the pump.when you found the pump remove it from the washing machine and strip it to clean the inside of the pump ,the impellor and so on. their you will find some black stuff that will stink a lot ,thats all old soap water.after cleaning put it back together and reinstall it. it should solve the problem, if not check for propper supply voltage to pump and spin motor.

My washing machine won't spin. i've cleaned the water hose filter and the pump filtre.


Hi eddyloz2000,

I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

After this, the Spin cycle will run, after the drainage procedure. If it does not, then you may need to replace the Drain Motor. Which is a easy task.

Kind Regards :-)

Machine will wash but not drain or spin.


machine wont spin while it has water in my advice is to lay the drain pipe level with the floor (outside of your house) so it can drain if it doesnt drain then you have a blockage anywhere from the drum outlet into the pump to the watse pipe if it does drian then take the pump apart and check it turns freely

My kenmour washer stopped spinning


Make sure door mechanism is working at fine. So next is to check whether the motor tumbles both directions.
The spin bearing might be a problem, but normally you'd hear a problem here first. Have you heard any freight trains passing through the house in the spin cycle?
One thing to check for this problem is the spin speed switch. If the spin speed switch is bad then the control won't know how fast to spin, and so it will just not spin at all.
The drain pump must be draining all the water out. If the water doesn't drain out then the pressure switch won't read empty and that might prevent a spin cycle.

I hope this helps.

GE Washer wont drain. Wont agitate, does nothing. Washer is part of a stackable unit about 4-5 yrs old. Checked circuit breakers and electrical and water supply. What should I check? Are there fuses inside...


If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Here is a link to the part you need.
