Question about Washing Machines
FILLS WITH WATER AND DOES THE WASH CYCLE BUT WILL NOT DRAIN AND SPIN IS THERE A FILTER TO CLEAN
Posted by Anonymous on
Usually won't spin until water is drained to a low level.
Wont drain possibly because of blockage or pump blocked or stuck. (A Common Problem in Washing Machines)
So... As for further Troubleshooting
Process of elimination.
Where is Time Wheel set and what does it require to advanced to next stage.
Think of it as a Rotating Timer Switch stopping at each stage to check conditions.
The stages are controlled by sensors like "High Water Level"
The Sensor could be a simple Float Switch... eg. "High Water"
If water is High... Dont allow door to open and don't allow spin.
But do allow Pump to run.
It's all Plain Logic like used in computers (If, Then, Else)

SOURCE: Washer won't spin or drain water
you checke dthe drain??? how??? i would assume that you have something stuck within your drain pump assy( bra underwire-- money--- toothpick--nail/screw) VERY common issue, youll need to remove the front cover and remove the hose leading to the pump to look inside. DISCONNECT POWER-- PUMP IS ALWAYS LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!, oh yea and youl need a bag to collect the water when you disconnect the hose, YOURE GONNA GET WET!!

SOURCE: water wont drain
OE-pump blocked. Disconnect the power before attempting any work. Use of an RCD (plug in power breaker) is recommended.
Disconnect pump from sump hose and check for obstruction in either item. Pump removal: power off, remove cover, locate pump, (attached to other end of drain pipe).undo 2 wiring connections, 2 hose connections, and pump mounting screws. Remove pump chamber - some are held in with screws, others clip into place. Check for foreign objects round the impeller. If pump chamber is clear, may be a fault with the pump motor - in which case, replace.
Also check the filter - generally located behind a panel at the foot of the machine.Some are obvious like little square hatches and some are hidden behind the trim panel at the foot of the machine. Once panel is removed the filter should be visible. Its generally a circular plastic fitting which unscrews in an anticlockwise direction. Some hotpoint, indesit and ariston filters are located in the big black sump hose (the one that leaves the bottom of the outer drum and connects to the pump). Remove the back cover, locate hose, remove the tensioner clip by squeezing the tabs together, remove the hose, take out filter and clean.

SOURCE: spin/drain cycle won't start
If the timer gets to the rinse cycle and stops,
Check the lid switch for continuity. If no continuity replace the lid switch.
If the timer continues through rinse and spin without doing either, replace the timer.

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.
