First is machine spinning? machine only drains in spin mode.
If machine not spinning check lid is closed and check lid switch and plastic plunger that operates the switch located on the lid.
If machine is spinning then most likely a blockage on the drain hoses or pump. if there is water in the machine, lower the rear drain hose to low level, if water starts to flow out the hoses are not blocked, more likely a pump failure. To replace pump first drain all water from the machine with drain hose at low level.
Tilt machine back and remove the belt from below.
Remove the front panel.
To gain access and remove front panel insert a knife or thin blade approx. 4" in the from each side in between the front seam on the front panel, this will release the lid clips, lift and hinge back the lid panel, remove the two screws securing the front panel and remove.
Pump on right hand side at the back, disconnect main hose from pump by squeezing hose clip with pliers (may be a bit of water remaining). Unbolt pump and pull forward with the drain hose attached until it can be disconnected and pump fully removed.
Check pump for blockage and damage to impellor, replace/refit in reverse order.
It possible something is jamming pump impellor, like a coin or hair
pin, or pump itself is seized, or impeller is broken or loose.
front panel, there are two clips in between front panel and top that
you have to push in with metal putty blade or thin slot screw driver
while pulling front panel away on either then pull up from bottom clips.
Shop vac water from machine clamp off hose going from tub to pump.
Lean machine back if poosible so remaining water goes to back of tub,
remove hoses, remove wiring to pump.
Unscrew pump from base observe
inside ports for objects or broken or seized impeller on shaft if there
things in pump remove them reatach wires put machine to drain or cancel
and see if pump impellor turns freely, if so reassemble and try,
otherwise buy new pump. Not very expensive.
The usual cause of such leak is a damaged or worn drain pump. Replace it to solve the problem. It can be accessed from the back if it is a belt drive machine or from the front if it is a direct drive. Make sure to unplug the machine before servicing.
Cabinet Removal Procedure (Direct Drive machines) Remove the console depending on the model of your machine.
If the console is secured by screws, simply remove the screws, lift the console up then flip it to the back of the machine. On some models, the screws are hidden under the console's removable end caps. Pull the end caps to the front of the machine to access the screws. If the console is not held by screws, use a putty knife to release the retaining clips under the front corners of the console. Insert the putty knife blade and push it until the clips are released.
Disconnect the lid switch connector from the body of the machine.
The body of the machine is held on to the back panel by two retaining clips. Use a flat blade screw driver and insert it to the lip of the clip and push it to the back of the machine.
Lift the lid and grab the front of the machine's body. Brace the machine's body with your knee, lift and pull it towards you to remove it. You now have the access to the drain pump.
Reinstall the cabinet in reverse order of the procedure above.
For belt drive washers, remove the access panel on the back of the machine to access the drain pump. Drain Pump Replacement Procedure
Remove the spring clamps that hold the hoses to the pump. Compress the spring clamps and move it away from the pump.
The pump is held on to the motor by two retaining clips. Pry the clips away to remove the pump from the motor.
Remove the hoses from the pump and install the new pump in reverse order of the procedure above.
Won't spin if it hasn't drained. Most probably a blocked/jammed pump impellor. Manually drain it from the lower drain pump (by side tube if that model has one, or slowly into a shallow pan. Remove cap completely & check for things jamming pump.
take out two screws on top control panel,either in the back or in front or you might have to pop off covers on left and right side of panel and then you'll see screws,the panel is on hindges,lift it up,now you'll see two metal clips put screw driver in the front part of clip and push screw driver back towards panel and clip will release,remove lid switch wire clip and pull the frame to you and move it out of your way,look down under the front of tub and remove the two metal clips holding pump on
Check where drainhose connects to waste pipe for blockage. If OK, blockage likely to be in pump impellor.
Disconnect from power.
To access pump:
Open door and remove all bottom filters. Remove all water from inside machine. In the bottom of the sump on the left hand side, you will see a star screw- remove this screw and you can remove the cover it is holding down. Under this cover you will see the drain pump impellor (white fan blade). This impellor should turn relatively easily- check for blockages (careful for broken glass!!). It can be a bit hard to reach, but you need to get your finger right around underneath impellor to ensure nothing is stuck underneath- try flicking the impellor a few times to remove any obstruction from underneath. Once clean and free from obsruction, reassemble and test
Hi, 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.
take top off remove three srcews in back ..remove 4 screws hold control console ,,dont remove connection just flip console on top of drum,,make sure unit is unpluged..your looking at 4 screws across to panel remove them open door remove spring wire clip around the out sid bellows where almost there..now careful down in the filter acess panel remove the frist screw the filter cover comes off after the cover is out remove the pump filter housing screw..and last remove thebottom panel screw,,remov panel,,pump on left is drain pump..pump on right is recrulation pump
The hum you hear is the drain pump trying to get the water out of there, but it can't for one of two reasons. 1.) It's jammed by debris (pillow stuffing material, underwire from a bra, etc...) 2.) The pump itself has failed.
UNPLUG THE WASHER!
You'll need to remove the three screws that are located below the bottom front panel. (Do this easily by leaning the machine backwards toward the wall and propping the 2 front feet up with a brick or the 4" side of a 2x4) These screws are star shaped, called "Torx" screws, size #20. After you have those removed, pull the panel downward and pull out from the bottom at the same time, then set the panel aside.
Mounted to the floor of the machine near the center is the drain pump, see the hose coming out of the bottom of the tub and into the pump? That one will HAVE to be clamped off before you continue. Use 2 open end wrenches and a pair of vice grips... use the wrenches to pinch off the hose and the vice grips to clamp the TIGHTLY into place.
Now remove the drain trap cover. Rotate the hand grip counter-clockwise several turns and pull it toward you. (*THERE WILL BE SOME WATER COME OUT EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE THE HOSE CLAMPED OFF. HAVE TOWELS READY) Use a flashlight and your fingers to inspect the pump area, remove any debris you find. Make sure it's COMPLETELY cleared out. Then re-install the drain trap cover next remove your hose clamps. Plug your machine back in and set it to "spin only" and engage. You should hear the pump fire up and water being evacuated. Is so? You did it! Rebuild everything. Job time= ~45 minutes.
If not, you have a bad pump and it should be replaced. The part # is 280187 and list for ~$115.00 at your local appliance parts retailer.
Good luck! Please post back.
