Good Afternoon Jennifer, thank you for allowing me to assist you. I have located generic instructions on how to drain your washer, please follow the steps below:

1 Turn off water supply faucets.

2 Disconnect hoses from water supply and drain water from hoses.

3 Plug electrical cord into a properly grounded electrical outlet.

4 Add 1 gallon (3.8 L) nontoxic recreational vehicle (RV) antifreeze to empty wash drum. Close door.

5 Select the Spin Only cycle. Press Start and let the washer drain for 1 minute to drain out all the water.
(Not all of the RV antifreeze will be expelled.)

6 Press Cancel, unplug electrical power cord, dry off drum interior and close door.

7 Remove dispenser drawer. Drain any water in compartments and dry compartments. Replace drawer.

8 Store washer in an upright position.

9 To remove antifreeze from washer after storage, perform Clean System Cycle as described earlier.

I hope this information helps to some degree. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect.

SOURCE: Washer hums but will not fill or start/ spin has water pressure and tub seems to move freely the model #on tag LTF2140ES0

If it doesn't fill it won't start any other cycle unless you move it ahead yourself. If it hums I am thinking it is trying to fill. Sounds like the valve is turning on to let water in but it is not getting through. My washer has a screen where the hoses go on and sometimes the screen becomes plugging with scale. If that is ok then the solenoid must be coming on but the valve is stuck. Does neither hot or cold settings work? Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Avanti w798-ss e3 error


It seems there is a fault on the main controller unit of the washer. It seems to start and then drain off in mid cycle. Now choose a different program and see if there is any change. Also check individually the inlet valve, the water level sensor and also the drain valve. Also check all the connections to the main panel.

Clogged draining boot?


Check the drain filter and the drain hose at the back.

Drain filter access is located in the fro lower section of the front size. You need to remove the trim at the base of the washer and to undo the cap, turning it counter clockwise. Disconnect power before starting and keep a container ready to collect the water.

Kenmore series 80 washer won't drain after wash cycle


Try the 'drain' portion of a few of the other cycles (heavy, perm. press, delicates) and see if it will drain/spin there. You can also try advancing the timer slowly through the 'spin' portion to see if it kicks in anywhere.

If it will rinse and spin in the other cycles, you most likely have a bad timer.

Hope this helps.

My kenmore washer model number 110. 92573210 washer seems fine it just will not drain, is this the water pump?


HI,
Check back of washe with a flashlight for a bent or clogged drain hose. Do not move washer to check it. When you move it , it will straighten out and you will never know if it was bent
Also while it is pumping , pick up end of drain hose at drain and observe the volume of water being pumped.
If no water then the Pump may need replaced
Thank you for using fixya

My daughter has a new Whirlpool WTW4800XQ0, it takes the machine about 3 hours to go through the cycle. Okay this being said, when it gets to the spin cycle, it doesn't, she is having to pull the...


does it drain water, seems like it's gonna spin then starts filling up again? if this is what's happening it mean the washer is sensing that the load isn't balanced and it fill back up to move the clothes around and tries again, it will keep doing this untill it senses a balance of weight in the drum. if she tries moving the clothes around herself before it done draining she maybe able to keep it from doing this
