One way I found to conserve water use, is either the washing machine has a water saver button feature or just use cold water as much as possible. That way, you are not using up the hot water and conserving the gas or electric that it takes to heat the water.

My washer can wash but cannot drain water from thye tub. how can i fix this?


The question is pretty loose so I will do the best I can without knowing the model and type of washer but they are all basically the same.

If the washing machine appears to be functioning normally but simply won't pump away the water then the possible causes (in the most likely order) are a blockage somewhere, a pump failure, or an electrical fault stopping the pump from running.
Blockages are the more likely explanation, but pumps can fail. If the washing machine will not empty the water out you may also not be able to open the door on some washing machines although these days it's much rarer to have a pneumatic lock on the door due to cost cutting [ if a washing machine has a pneumatic door safety lock a rubber hose is connected to the door interlock from a pressure chamber bottle on the tub - water in the tub forces air up this tube and locks the door, which is released when the water is pumped out and the air pressure drops].
Full and detailed advice about finding your pump filter, draining the washing machine when stuck full of water and looking for blockages can be found here - troubleshooting pump faults on a washing machine.
If this is helpful a vote with the thumbs up would be appreciated for the free advice and is you need furthur explanaition please feel free to contact me .
Thanks

Moffatt washer is washing and draining but not spinning out the clothes


All content © 2000 © 2009 Washerhelp
> Home / Repairs DIY washing machine advice (part 8) Washing machine sticks or stops mid-cycle repairs-sm.gif A very common fault on washing machines is when the program timer fails to complete the cycle and stops part way through. Many people blame the program timer for this but although it is a possible cause, there are many more likely causes for this fault. The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are too many possible causes of this fault to be able to give anything other than rudimentary advice. However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking that can easily be fixed are filling and emptying problems.
Check that the cold water supply is available to the washing machine, which is a common cause for sticking on rinses. If the washing machine appears to stop mid-cycle and isn't filling with water on rinses then see Washing machine won't fill with water (or no water goes into washing machine) before calling an engineer. If the washing machine can't drain the water out then it will stick on the rinses, or it will abort with an error code. If you can see water still inside the washing machine then check the following advice Washing machine won't empty water

I have a hotpoint ultima wt940 washing machine,, which is displaying a tap symbol,, when it fills up at the start of the cycle,, h2o flashes on the screen,, then the machine stops. Any advice? Thanks.


H20 is indicating a problem with the water supply.
Check tap/s are turned on fully, no restriction in hose/s, and make sure that there is sufficient water pressure.
Another possibility is that the inlet valve/s are faulty inside the washer.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

You cannot. There is a pressure switch that measures the weight of the water before moving on to the next cycle.

Probably something caught in pump. Remove lower panel if this one has it and you will see the pump. Loosen the round cover in middle to access clean-out.
