Washer won't drain or spin

It is stuck in 13 minutes on. It won't spin, it won't set to any other setting. It won't drain.
I took the drain hose off and made sure it was clear. (it was)

There is still quite a bit of water in the drum.

The motor may have gotten too hot. We overloaded with clothes. I removed all the clothes and have tried to trouble shoot. It says "error" whenever I press start button.

Remove the front lower panel. Right in front you will see the pump filter. Get some towels and a bucket and unscrew the filter cap and pull the filter out. See if you have a bunch of lint and stuff in there. If you do, clear it out, refit carefully and give the washer another try. The companies dont tell you how to do it, for their techs then won't make any money. A tech to clean your filter!!!?? $$$

You're free to rate me............not that i get anything. Happy washing!!

Washing Machines will not rinse or spin


If the water won't drain out of your washing machine, either something is stuck in the drain hose or pump, or the pump is broken. Both fixes are simple if you're even just a little bit handy with tools. We're showing the repair on a Maytag washing machine.
What is wrong with a washer that does not spin?
If your washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drivewashing machines do not have belts.) To diagnose the problem, do the following: 1Check the washing machine's spin cycle.

Kitchenaid KAWS700G will fill and wash but won't drain and spin


My washer also did not drain. I disconnected the power supply and water hoses and the drain hose and lay the machine on its side.. The motor is at the bottom. Once I disconnected the hose and put my finger to look inside. There is a rubber stopper and once I moved that aside and looked inside I found my baby sock stuck in the the pump. Once I gently pulled the sock out It came out easily. Lucky me the motor is in working condition.
My washing machine was manufactured I believe in 1997.

This is the first time ever took look under any washing machine.
Best of luck!

Maytag Neptune washer machine won't spin or fully drain


    • 1 Open your home's breaker box and flip the circuit breaker switch to "On." If it is already set to "On," flip it to "Off" and then back to "On" to reset it. A power surge may have interrupted your wash cycle so the drain/spin cycle never actually started.
    • 2 Move the washer away from the wall and straighten the drain hose if it is twisted or turned in a way that makes it difficult for water to flow through it. Replace a kinked hose with a new hose.
    • Sponsored Links
    • 3 Push on the washer door to make sure it is fully closed. The washer will not drain or spin unless the door is closed tight. Press the "Start/Pause" button after you close the door.
    • 4 Wait for about 30 seconds after you press "Start/Pause." The washer will not operate until it has been able to fully lock the door and restart the drain process.
    • 5 Run the clothes through a complete cycle again, making sure you use cold water if there are a lot of suds in the washer. Too much soap in the washer can make it hard to drain. Use high-efficiency or low-sudsing detergents on subsequent uses.

My washer won't spin. There is a coin stuck inside


If the coin is in between the 2 drums but is free floating you amy be able to get it by removing th bottom drain hose from the drum but this can become a pain unless you are lucky as the coin will move with the machine tipped over. the other way is to remove the heating element while the machine is upright and use a stick or a grabber to get it out.

Washer won't go into spin cycle, stops after final rinse. When I try drain &rinse it still will not spin.


If the unit does not spin correctly, this is usually an indication that the unit can also not drain. The unit will not spin if it senses a blockage or issue with the drain lines and/or pump. Try to check the drain lines in the back of the unit for any issue, and then see if you have an access panel to get to the coin trap or drain pump itself. Often socks and debris will clog up in this area and cause your problems.

My magtag 5000 series washer is flashing error code F21, It was in the middle of a wash cycle and now the door is locked and it won't open. How do I at least get the door open. I have unplugged the


Unplug the washer. Then plug it back in and press the button that turns it off. This should unlock the door. Same thing happened on mine and there was a kink in the drain hose. Once I unkinked the hose, unplugged it, plugged it back in, turned it off, then I was able to run a drain & spin cycle to get the water out of the load that was in the washer. I then ran a full wash cycle (they'd gotten stuck in the first drain & spin cycle of a wash) and everything seems to be fine now.

Washer wont drain water


It won't drain If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.
