How do i drain the washer for moving it


Mike,

I cannot tell whether you are talking about (1) the little bit of residual water in the machine after it's done, or (2) about a machine that's stopped mid-cycle with a good deal of water, so I'll respond to both cases.

(1) The lowest point in the washing machine is the drain outlet at the back to which the drain hose attaches. First remove the free end of the drain hose from the drain pipe and place it in a bucket sitting on the floor. That will get most of the water. Then place a towel on the floor and remove the other end of the drain hose from the machine. Remaining water will spill out from the outlet and hose onto the towel. You might get a little more if you lift the front of the machine, tilting it backward.

(2) If you can't drain the machine and it's full of water, you will need to siphon it. Take a piece of tubing, at least five feet long. You could use a piece of garden hose if you have nothing else. If you don't have a door or window nearby, you will need TWO buckets. Place the buckets on the floor in front of the machine. Place the siphon hose into the washer tub starting with one end to fill it with water. When it's completely in, cover one end, take it out, place it into a bucket. If the siphon doesn't automatically start, get down low on the floor, place the hose into your mouth and inhale. You may have to do this several times, possibly covering the tubing end with your tongue between inhalations. When the bucket is nearly full, switch the hose to the empty bucket and empty the first one. You will probably have several buckets of water. (Of course if your washing machine is near an outside door, you can simply start the siphon outside and omit the buckets.)

Completely dead and lid is locked


Try an extension cord to another powerpoint. Place the drain hose in a bucket and slowly lower it to the floor, lift it up when the bucket is full, continue till the washer is empty or no more water will come out. Turn the washer off at thew wall and unplug it, wait a few minutes and plug it back in, this may reset the machine so it starts working again.
Hope this helps

My dishwasher won't empty


This condition is commonly caused by:

- Drain pump jammed

When you wash your clothes, any small objects (e.g. hair pins, coins etc) are flushed down the drain pipe but often get jammed in the drain pumps impellar (this is the tiny propeller on the pump).

Firstly, place a bucket on the floor....then lower your drain hose (from your tub) into the bucket - the gravity will naturally drain the water into the bucket. Be careful to raise the hose and empty the bucket each time, until the machine is empty. Remove any wet clothes from machine (you will need the bowl to be emptied).

Once empty, you can now check the drain pump.

Turn the machin off at the power.

Locate the drain pump cover (usually near the drain hose, on the back or side). Place a large towel on the floor beneath the pump cover (as remaining water will escape onto the floor). Unscrew the drain pump cover and allow the water to drain (if your pump cover contains a filter, then clean everything from this filter).

Then, look inside the drain pump cavity for anything obstructing the little propeller (remove any objects). Insert your finger inside the cavity and rotate the little propeller - you should feel a resistance, similar to a rubber band.

Re-install the drain pump cover (or filter) and ensure it is sealed properly. Turn ON at the wall.

Fill your bucket with water (from tub) and pour into your machine.

Turn machine ON, and select the last SPIN (or drain) cycle and check if machine now drains correctly. If ok, then problem now solved and you can put the clothes back into the machine for a final rinse/spin.

If machine still not draining after inspecting the drain pump, then you may have a suspected faulty drain pump - a technician can run a diagnostic process on your machine's control pad to find the diagnostic codes.

Please do let me know, if the above process helps you solve this.

Cheers,

I have a hose discharging water from back . but bucket still fills up. ive checked hose for clogs ive checked pump for proper operation. ive tried to block drip spouts going to bucket that just made water...


The clog is not in the hose. It's in the hose connection tube inside the unit. To unclog it use an 18" long plastic Zip Tie or something similar that is flexible and will fit into the hole. NO wire coat hangers though. Gingerly work it into the hose connection hose, until you reach a bend in the tubing. This is the tricky part, as you have to get past this bend. Be careful and work it past the bend. Once the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie, slowly pull it back out while rotating it. This will dislodge the clog. Once the Tie is almost all the way out, be prepared for water to follow.

One other thing. If the unit stops operating check that the bucket full light is illuminated. If it is remove the bucket and empty the contents and then check the seal between the hose and the drip tray. If there is a small leak then replace the hose gasket and re-tighten the hose.

FYI - Your humidifier does not have a pump. It relies entirely on gravity to drain, when you use the hose connection.

That should solve the problem.

F-05 displaying on ultima wt960 what can i do to solve this


I have had this problem before and called out an engineer. It happened again today and luckily I remembered what he did.

Have a bucket handy.

Switch machine off at mains, disconnect washing machine waste pipe, put a cloth/rag in the end of it to stop water leaking out, and bring it down to as low to the floor as you can.

Jiggle it a bit (to make the pipe bend and flex as much as you can).

Put hose in the end of the bucket, take out the rag, start a cycle (to allow water in) and press cancel to stop the cycle, it should now start to drain, but with lots of muck in it.

Once it drains, put the rag back in the waste pipe and empty the bucket.

Now really jiggle and flex the pipe as much as you can..without causing damage..I really shook it about..a bit like when you were younger and made a rope look like a snake!

Tag the rag out and place end of waste pipe back in the bucket.

Complete the process above again by starting a cycle to let some water in - for about 30 seconds - then cancel and allowing to drain..should see a lot more gunk.

If this hasn't worked you may need an engineer.

You can repeat process if you like. Although I stopped here.

Remember to reconnect and tighten your waste pipe.

How do you hook it up to a floor drain?


With most portable dehumidifiers use a bucket to catch the condensate. Then the bucket is full the dehumidifier stops, then you need to empty it and replace the bucket to get the dehumidifier to start working again.

To make this unit run continually, the bucket can be modified so a garden hose can be attached and the hose can be feed into a floor drain. To do this look at the bottom of the bucket, there should be a hose connector where you can attach a standard garden hose. You will need to drill out the center of the hose connector with a 1/4" drill bit. Then you can attach the hose to the bucket and the other end into the floor drain.

How can I get my washing machine to spin and empty with bad timer


Emptying the tub is easy, just lower the drain hose into a bucket on the floor, or into a floor drain. If the timer can be operated manually, turn it to spin, then drain after spinning a while. If this is an electronic timer, you will need to remove the clothes and take to a laundromat or a friend's house to spin the water out.

How do I drain a maytag washing machine?


If the machine will not operate to drain the water, gravity will do the job for you. Simply remove the drain hose from the standpipe, and lower it to a floor drain if one is near enough to the machine. If no floor drain, you can catch the water from the hose into a large bucket for disposal. You will need to empty the bucket numerous times before the washer is empty.

Dehumidifier emptys in the floor.


Check the float first - be sure the styrofoam on the bottom is still intact.  Be sure that you can move it up and down freely (and easily) with the bucket out of the machine.  If that is not bound up, and the foam is in place, next check the switch in the dehumidifier itself.  It's directly behind where the float goes - the way to test it is to turn the dehumidifier on and push the metal tab in with your finger.  The machine should cut out immediately - if it does not - the microswitch needs to be replaced.  (they're very cheap, and simple to replace)
