Spin cycle doesnt kick in all the way unless drain hose is lowered into a bucket seems like the drain pump stops pumping when the hose is up in high in the drain. Water sloshes out of the machine and it doesnt kick in to it's hi speed spin. Started happening when a large beach towel full of sand was washed!!!

There is a coupling between the motor and the pump and this has finally worn out... on some models the pump is belt driven and the belt could be bad... on some models the pump is seperate from the drive motor and has its own motor just for the pump...this could be running but the pump part could be bad...nearly all machines will allow the water to drain out if you just lower the drain hose lower than the tub...try letting the water drain into a small bucket and then see if it wil spin...it should spin once the water is drained out but you will have to keep the drain hose in the bucket lower than the tub through the spin cycle....this should work and allow you to get all the water out of your machine....dont use it any more....get it repaired by a washing machine maintenance person
Hi, i'm pretty sure that this would seem to suggest that the pump maybe faulty or that there is a blockage, arm yourself with a large bucket or bowl and take the drain hose from the machine gently lowering it to below the washing machine tub level, make sure the drain hoseis quite flat or level as you do this, lift the hose if you need to stop the water because the bucket is full, empty the bucket and start again until no more water runs, then set about checking the filter for blockages or anything that maybe fouling the pump, if all is clear then it could be a suspect pump,if not clear all debris clean the filter re-insert it and make sure the drain hose is back in place, try the machine on a cycle,let it fill and see if it empties(pump runs), if not, the machine will not take in any further fresh water or do a main spin because there is water trapped in the machine. so you will have to go through the manual drain procedure again as above and try a new pump, there is also the possiblity it could be the main control board or faulty control loom.
If in doubt look for a washing machine technician that maybe able to give you a free quote.
could be your pump has stopped working, or a blockage first check that your stanpipe is clear, get a bucket and put outlet hose end in if it drains into bucket then it is a plumbing problem not the machine.
check the tub to pump and pump to drain for blockages of debris,the pump should drain the bulk of the water,then it should spin out the rest unless the belt is that glazed,get to the spin cycle and pull out the washer drain hose out of the house drain stand pipe and see how much force water is while being pumped out while just pumping and not spinning,there should be the water stream the size of the inside of the drain hose and good velocity of water flow to the drain
Probably needs the filter cleaning.
Remove lower rear panel.
Remove large black hose onto drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for obstruction here and in the pump itself.
Please rate my solution.
Remove the hose from the drain and lower the hose to a floor drain or a large bucket. If water flows, there is a failure with the pump. If no water flows there is an obstruction, such as a sock lodged in the drain path from tub to pump. Either condition will require some disassembly to repair.
Plug off the mains. First drain out all your water by lowering the exit hose into a bucket or drain. You have to look for screws below the front kick-panel, the panel comes down & out. The pump is on the right side. Be prepared for dirty water.Inside the big flexible tube (coming from the tub bottom) is the filter, be prepared to find all sorts of junk here, clean out.Examine your pump also, clean out the impeller.Carefully refit all.Your machine would be fine.Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.
Is there still water in the machine or have you bailed it out? Some units have a serviceable water pump, meaning you can take the bottom of the pump off and clear gunk that has plugged it up. When you manually turn the dial to spin cycle, does it spin and push any water out even a tiny amount at a time? If not, take a large bucket and then place it on the floor next to the machine and place the drain hose in it. The bucket needs to be lower than the water level in the machine. When you do this, does it drain? If so this would solve the issue of whether or not the pipes are plugged. If in both cases either on spin or with the hose lower than water level, if it only drains a tiny stream then you do have a plugged line and you would need to disconnect the hoses from the pump under the machine and clear the plug. Be prepared for a lot of water to come out when you take the hose off of the pump. The plug is most likely in the hose coming out the bottom of the tank going to the water pump. This item has the hose leaving the machine going to the house drain. The other large hose goes up to the bottom of the tank. Good luck and let me know if you need more help.
