Changing or Upgrading your Old Washing Machine


If you are thinking of changing or upgrading your old washing machine, there is a one thing that you need to consider. The plumbing that takes the water away may have been okay for your old washer, but it may not work well for a new washing machine. Many houses have been built with 1-1/4” or 1-1/2” drain standpipes for washing machines. While these pipes were entirely okay for the washing machines that they were to serve, they are no longer okay for many of the new washing machines of today.

The new front load and many of the new top load washers are now using a separate pump for removing the water from the washing machine. This is great for getting the water out faster, but the water goes out so fast that the piping is no big enough to handle the volume of water that is being pumped.

For many of the new washers you need to have a 2" standpipe and trap... the older 1-1/2" standpipes and traps will not handle the higher volume of the new pumps. Because of this, you will have to also upgrade your plumbing to make sure that your new washer will not flood you out when it discharges the water from the machine.

The plumbing is often easily accessible, but in some cases it is not that easy. When possible change the plumbing from the main trunk line to the washer with a new 2” trap and pipe. If a total change is not possible, then get the pipe as big as possible as close as possible to the trunk line. This will give you at least less resistance to water flow and give a reserve space for the water to go to. The most important part is the trap as this creates the most restriction to the flow of the water. Also getting the pipe as high as possible where it dumps in at, will help, but check on the maximum height limitations of your washing machine. If you get the pipe too high the washer will not be able to pump the water high enough to get it over the top and into the pipe, creating yet another problem for you.

By checking all this out before you purchase that new washing machine, you can save yourself a lot of headaches later.

Leaves in water


Check pipes are not blocked, to do this while you have water in machine,remove outlet pipe from drain, and place into a bowl so it is below the tub.If water does not come out then pipe is blocked. Whichever you need to do the following.
1 unplug machine, and remove the rear panel at the bottom, using a screwdriver.
2 If no water came out from pipe then directly below tub is a black pipe, this will need to be removed using fitting either grips or a screwdriver, depending on what fitting retains pipe to the tub.As you remove the pipe be carefull not to loose the ball inside pipe. This is like a ping pong ball.You can now check pipe.
If you did get waterr out from pipe at stage 1 then remove other end of this pipe, from the pump only. Then tilt machine and view under pump to see what holds it in place. Normally 2 scews. Remove these and lift pump away, be carefull of the 2 wires that go to pump.You can now check pump is clear. If it is then chances are you need a new pump. This will cost around £10.00 but you will need to use the front part from old pump.When refitting ensure pipes are fitted correct and you have no leaks. This is fairly easy to do yourself, just take time and look where screws are fitted to pump casing. I am sure you will do this no problem, so good luck. PS. most shops will charge around £45. if pump is blocked and anything from £45-£60 to fit a pump.so it is worth doing it yourself.Also you dont need a genuine hotpoint pump, just ask for an Askol pump.

Thank you for your help. Water is not draining.


Hi, dont know what machine you have but normally easy to get to pump,Remove back panel from machine, if there are 2 panels then remove the bottom one. You may need grips or screw driver to remove the retaining clip for the hose on the pump. Best bet remove pipe where it meets the pump then you will normally be able to feel inside the pump. If this is claer then remove other end of pipe where it joins the bottom of the tub. This should then help resolve the problem. Good luck and it is quite easy, just remember to unplug machine.

Our samsung j845 front load washing machine won't


You have a blockage in the drain pump or sump on the machine, it could be anything from a coin, bra wire or an elastic band, best thing to do is switch off the electricity and incoming water, remove as much water from the machine as possible, pull machine out place a suitable container below the drain filter and then open up the filter (if fitted) once cleaned check hoses and drain pump internally for blockages.

Machine Pump has stopped working on Hotpoint WMA64


I believe that the hotpoint part number is 1603290, the price in the UK is about £25 (About $35?). the pump is fairly easy to replace as far as I can see (I don't know the exact machine, but I have looked at the part. The pump is held to the chassis by 2 philips screws. pipes in and out of the pump will be held on by either a screw up clamp or a spring clamp, both of which are easy to remove. Power is via a 2 wire plug in connector. If you are a ressonably practical person, you should have no problems.

A few things before you start:
  • TURN THE POWER OFF (And this means pull the plug out of the wall!)
  • Drain the machine as best as you can.
  • Have towels to mop up when you discover your best wasn't good enough.
  • Once you have removed the pump, dry up properly before you start work with the replacement
  • Always tip the machine BACKWARDS and away from the control panel so leaks don't wreck your electrics and change a $35 repair into a $200 repair.
  • Have a look before you buy the part. Decide if you are happy to go ahead and understand what you are doing.
Finally, just consider the question is it actually the pump? If you can hear the pump running, its probably not the pump. If you can see water coming out of the waste pipe when you put it in the sink, its certainly not the pump. Take a look at the information I wrote for someone else about clearing a blocked pump before you go to replace the pump (I have reprinted the whole article below). I would strongly advise you to carry out the checks below anyway, because they may have contributed to the pump's failure if you have got a dead pump. Doing the following will help preserve the new one.

The empty pump cycle is a timed operation, the fact that there is still water in the drum after the time allowed for the pump to drain it has run out means that the water isn't clearing out fast enough.

In order of probability, the problem is usually caused by:
1. A blocked filter
2. An obstruction in the empty pipe or drain
3. A Faulty pump

1 Blocked Filter: Many machines have a small door in the bottom of the chassis. Behind this door (Usually about 5 inches square) is a filter, which will usually unscrew. In this filter you will find fluff, string, coins, the odd small sock and all sorts of nasty stuff if you haven't had the filter out before. If the filter is blocked then the pump is having to draw water through all that gunk and it will run out of time and leave water in the drum. Clean the filter in the sink, pocket the coins you find and make a note to clean it regularly in the future Most manufactures will suggest you check it every 2 months or so, depends how often you are using the machine of course.
Unfortunately, other machines do not have filters so easily accessible. If there is no door or obvious access to the filter, some manufacturers put a trap in the rubber hose that feeds the pump. The pain here is that the access to these traps is gained by dragging the bachine out of its place under the work surface and tipping it on to its back. Track the waste pipe back to locate the pump. On the other side of the pump will be a thicker (usually black rubber) pipe and built into this pipe is usually a little bucket that stuff can fall into before it gets to the pump. You can usually squeeze the pipe and feel if there is stuff in it. If there is, then depending on the machine again, some of these traps will have a plug in the bottom that is held in place by a spring clip (Pliers to compress the spring to get it off) or a screw clip (Unscrew with a screwdriver). Enev if there is no trap as such, squeeze the rubber delivery pipe and feel for obstructions (Often a sock!), if necessary, disconnect the pipe from the pump to gain access to the blockage. WARNING!: Never tip the machine all the way onto its back, you may cause a water leak inside the machine. ALWAYS tip BACKWARDS, to the control panel for the machine is pointing up to avoid water getting to the control panel. I would recommend butting a chair behind the machine as you tip it, so the top back of the machine comes to rest on the seat and the machine is at about 45 degrees. this will give you access to underneath without a leak and make is a lot easier to tip it back on to its feet again afterwards.
2. An obstruction in the empty pipe or drain: Start at the point that the pipe enters the household drain pipe, pull out the empty pipe and check that water will flow freely into the drain (Stuffing the garden hose down there and turning it on (but not TOO FAST) will usually demonstrate if there is a blockage. If this is free, check the pipe that runs from the pump to the drain (This will need the machine tipping as described above, and possibly the pipe removing from the pump to check it.
3. A Faulty Pump:If you have done everything described so far, then you have checked for obstructions in the pipe leading to the pump, the pipe leading away and you have cleaned out any filters or traps... If you still have a problem, you have a faulty pump. This is highly unlikely. These pumps have induction motors (no brushes to fail) and in my experience, they either work, or they don't. They very seldom "work a bit". If SOME water is being pumped (check by putting the empty hose in the sink and watching) then you really need to double check your work before replacing the pump. Good news is, if you do have to they are usually reasonably priced.

Water runnning out from bottom of washing machine


Barbarahaps,
I had a similiar problem with a Brand X washer. the problem may be your water pump. if so, it is an easy fix for someone who is mechanically inclined. you first must see where the water is leaking from. when i did this, i securly placed my washer on cinder blocks so that i could see underneath it, and let it fill with a little bit of water, then i could clearly see the water leaking out of the water pump. the key concern here is safety, make sure that the machine fills with only a little bit of water, and then cut the power off to the machine to ensure it doesn't start going through its cycle while up on the blocks, creating a potential hazard. If it is the waterpump, find a washer repair store, tell them the year and model machine you have, and get a water pump on order. the water pump is a pretty straight foward repair--you disconnect power from the machine, turn off and disconnect the water supply, disconnect the drain pipe, and tip over the washer to expose its under side. you disconnect the hoses going to the water pump, remove the attaching bolts, and install the new pump. then you hook everything back up and you should be good to go. hope this helps.

Drainage


more then likely that your pump or the drain hose has a slight blockedge you can kill 2 birds with 1stone here you can get rid of the water and see if the pipe is blocked by taking the pipe and placing it low to the ground into a bucket if the water comes out slow then you will have a blockedge and your pump will be ok now make sure you pull the plug out pull the asher out now tip it backwards just enough so you can see the pump at the back undue the clip which holds the pipe onto your pump now there will be some water that will leak out once pipe is free you can pure water down it by putting it onto the tap if it comes out fast then the block is in the pump
