It appears your hose clamp has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Water won't drain from tub.how to change pump.everything else works fine. nothing pluged.


Does water drain when washer goes from wash to rinse or is it just at the end after rinse. It could be a switch on the cycle timer not working if it doesn't pump out at all. If it doesn't pump out at only the end maybe one of the cams on the timer that makes the switch to dump water is loose or broke.

How do I replace drain hose


Do you mean the hose that goes to your standpipe, or the hose that goes from the drain pump to the plastic box(26) behind the washer?

In any case, to remove the hose (8) going from the back of your washer to the stand pipe, grab a pair of pliers and squeeze the wire fingers sticking out of the clamp (28) holding the drain hose to the plastic box on the rear of your washer. That relieves the tension of the clamp and, while still squeezing the wire fingers, slide the clamp up the drain hose a couple of inches. Then, you can pull the drain hose loose from the plastic piece.

Then, using your pliers again, completely remove the clamp from the old drain hose and put it on your new drain hose, about 3 inches back.
Then, stick your new drain hose onto the plastic piece and use your pliers to get the clamp back down to secure the drain hose to the plastic piece.

You should be able to figure it all out with no problem.

Took apart the washer and dryer and need to put it back together...i have everything except where the clear plastic hose goes


Kristen-follow the hoses-water comes into machine at the water supply valves-hot and cold which go into the tub-then there is a drain pump which is connected to the tub via a hose-the out put of the drain pump is connected to the drain through the back of the machine usually at the bottom and this goes into your houses' drain-follow the hoses and you shall reach laundry success-cheers Denny

Tub not draining in washer


If it won't drain, something is plugging the drain system. Start from the hose end. Make sure the hose is open at the end. Try lowering the hose to almost floor level. Make sure you have a pail handy. The water from the tub will be higher than the hose end and the blockage might come squirting out. Put the hose back into the sink or drain pipe it was in.
If water comes out of the hose, but the washer still doesn't "drain," turn it on to a point in the cycle where it should be draining (spin cycle). Listen to hear if the pump is running. If it isn't, there might be something caught in the pump, the pump impellers (that push the water through the pump) might be stuck or broken. This will require a service person.
A third thing you can try if you feel really handy, is to figure out how to open the top of the washer. (Do this with the washer unplugged.) This is often a couple of spring clips near the front edge. Push in on these clips with a putty knife or something else thin, while lifting the top. Once you get it open, scoop out the water between the tubs if you want to. Other wise reach in between the tubs and find the drain hole where the water leaves the outer tub. This happened to me once and there was a child's sock in the hole. Pull out the blockage, reassemble the washer, plug it in and see if the pump check works.
Like I said, it's the outer tub, the pump or the drain hose usually. Good luck.

Front loader, frigidare, not draining properly.


your washer has a drain catch, a small plastic cylinder with holes in it, that catches things left in you clothes. It may be restricted. You may have to clean your drain catch. It is located inside the hose that comes off the bottom of your outer tub, at the bottom, and goes to the drain pump. The easiest way to do this is to pull unit out enough to where you can tilt it back to rest against the wall. At the bottom of the washer there will be an oval shaped hole. You can access the hose with the drain catch inside of it. Remove the clamp at the tub with a phillips screwdriver or a 9/32 or 7mm socket. Before you do this you may want to remove any water still inside tube with a shop vac attatched to the washer drain line. If not alot of water will come out on the floor, or just get some towels, it will be messy. Once you have removed the clamp, remove hose enough to where you can pull out plastic cylinder inside hose. Make sure when you reinstall hose, that the hose is pushed up all the way against the tub, all the way around, or it will leak. Good luck!

Kenmore Series 80 fills with water and won't stop filling until manually advancing the timer, does not agitate but will spin and drain.


Good day,
Sounds as if the water level switch is bad, or the hose to it has broken, come off or is plugged up at the base where it enters the tub.
Remove the 2 screws that hold the console in place. They are either at both ends front, both ends front but hidden by end caps that have to be un clipped, or lastly at the bottom back.
Pull slightly forward and rotate the console up from the front and away from you.
You will see the water level switch with a plastic hose pressed onto it. Remove the hose, and blow into it with the tube partially filled. You should hear it gurgle. If broken, the air will just escape, if plugged and you cannot get air thru it, it will have to be cleaned.
If everything checks O.K. with the hose, then the fill control (pressure switch) is bad, and needs replaced.

The agitation mode works thru the pressure switch, but the switch is bypassed in the pump out spin mode. That's why it performs as you described.

Maytag mavz757aww will fill but not spin


take a wet dry shop vac and attach it tothe end off the drain hose and remove all the water.once the water is removed move the washer away from the wall. tilt it back and look under the front you should see the drain pump and motor remove the two black hoses and look for anything stuck in the drain pump.
then look for a black rubber piece with two white plastic pieces on both side if this is broken then replace it this is your transmsiion coupler.
if there is nothing wrong with either one of these items then you may need to rpelace the lid switch.

The whirlpool washer i have used for 10 years broke, beyond the point of fixing. I bought a new washer moved it in, but in the process realized that there is still water in the old washer and i can't find...


There is no actual drain plug. The water is pumped out by the machine. You could take the back of the washer apart to get to the pump but I think the easiest thing for you to do would be to scoop the water out into a bucket by hand or siphone the water out using a hose. If you get a long water hose you can stick one end into the washer and the other to a downstairs sink. Then **** on the hose on the downstairs end to start the water to move into the hose. Once you get the water started it should siphone the rest out on its own due to gravity.
