Question about Washing Machines

Water starts between spin cycles and will not stop, just keeps pumping out the drain. water will not turn off even when machine is turned off, I have to turn off water at the wall.

I tried: 1) cleaning out washing machine with vinegar 2) upplugging machine to reset 3) checked the ***-PUMP DRAIN (all good) 4) blowing down the hose of the ***-SENSOR PRESSURE (all good)

Most washers have a water level sensor this may be causing it not to shut off the flow

You may have some articles that made their way into the pump housing. Alot of times I see dimes get stuck in the ports of the pump, remove and check out thoroly and also check hoses coming to pump for little son of a gun articles that like to hide.

SOURCE: Washer still wont drain, even after cleaning drain pump line

"F02" is a Long Drain error. If you have managed to verify that the drain lines are clear from the tub - to the pump - the the wall, then this usually indicates that the pump has failed. It can be common for this pump to make noise and still not work.

Just to be sure: Is water running freely form the tub to the drain line when you drain the water? If not, make sure you double check the line from the tub to the pump. Is can be common for small articles of clothing (i.e., wash cloth or underwear) to get caught in this area and restrict water flow. Don't ask me how these items get between the wash tub and basket, but I have seen it happen.

The pump is usually sold as a complete unit and can be found at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the part will be listed under the "Pump & Motor" heading. It is listed as item #10 (part #8181684) and sells for about $71.00.

This is a fairly simple job that you can accomplish yourself if you feel inclined to do so. If you click on my profile and look under "Tips and Tricks", I have step-by-step instructions posted on how to replace a drain pump like yours. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, please post back and I will assist you further. I hope this answers all your questions.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool front load washing machine model WFW8300SW00

Hay Crab.
what I have found is that the washer thinks it is not pumping out .. if your drain pump is clearly removing the all the water in a good time... then the problem is your pressure switch...it is telling the computer that it still has water in the machine...

replace the pressure switch and it will solve your f21 error.

It is a round unit on the right hand side on top...with a tube and wires going to it...let me know if it helps

SOURCE: indesit washing machine fills up and starts cycle

Could be heater. Try machine on rince cycle.Not pressure switch. If mahine works on rince then chances are heater. But this should not affect spin

SOURCE: Whirlpool washing machine "clean pump" error light.

take top off machine. look down right side and you will see a disc about 50 mm in diameter, attached to this is a small flexible rubber pipe, take this off at the disc and blow through it,( you will need some type of pipe to connect to the rubber pipe).this worked for me with the very same problem.

Fisher and Paykel 7.5 washing machine keeps powering off during rinse and spin cycles


The pump has a thermal safety cut out on it.
If the pump gets too hot it cut out.
Just put a new pump in and your all going again.

Hi, our washing machine started leaking water underneath just the weekend gone. I didnot see where the water was coming from but my wife tells me that she started the washing machine as per normal as...


It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. 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 or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occurs. Removing and Cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there is gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end. You have indicated that the spin was activated to drain off and so the drain exit seems good . Hence I would advice that you check the drain hose fittings and drain pump. Check once again to confirm if this was a program controller malfunction of the cycle. finally keep your machine in slight slant /tilt so that the water drains off fully to the exit valve.

Keeps filling up with water even on spin


Close the water supply valve and allow the machine to completely drain the water from the tub. Turn off the machine and disconnect it from the power outlet. Open the water supply valve. Replace the water inlet valve if water drips into the tub when the machine is off.

Start a new cycle if the machine stops filling when it is off. The control board or the water level switch is malfunctioning if it keeps filling even during the spin cycle. Indicate the model number for proper troubleshooting and repair assistance.

Avanti W797: Tub won't spin or water does not empty.


Had the same problem. The water pump is not working and since it cant drain water it wont spin. A easy fix. There's a magnet located on the water pump thats comes lose. Simply tie it back into place.

Washer keeps stopping during any cycle


the humming noise could be from two sources and it is worth while doing a few simple checks first the drain pump is jammed with a foreign object. check nothing caught in the impellor second water not available - check taps turned on. also turn water off, undo fill hoses, put in a bucket and turn water back on try on drain or spin programs to check water drainage as well

Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts


Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.
