Often washing things like rugs and matts can cause real problems for the drain pipes on you machine. Have you tried clearing out the drain plug, located at the bottom of the front of the machine? If that doesn't work, the whole drain hose from the drum will be blocked. thanks www.recycledrum.com
not draining quick enough, therefore spins with too much water throwing it self off bal. ever have any problem with this machine. heres what i can suggest. tip the machine back and remove 3 5/16 screws holding bottom panel on . on the right side approx 2/3 of the way back is the pump assy.( a yellow and black hose going to pump. are there clips on the pump holding it up to the pump motor???if so yuou can release the clips and disconnect the hoses looking for lint build up in pump itself.WARNING!!! you will ge wet ther is ALWAYS water inside this pump especially if you not pumping out correctly.i use a large black trash bag under to catch water.sounds like a clogged drain pump. they have a replacement for this particular pump. it comes as 1peice now pump and motor, bigger ports to prevent lint build up, easy enough to replace if needed. sounds like a clog fro sure though good luck
The motor has a double pole on it. The pump is driven on one side of the motor. The basket is driven on the other end of the motor. So if the water is pumped out then the lid switch is fine. What you have is a broken drive coupler. Usually breaks on a heavy load like rugs or quilts. Low water on a heavy load can break it too. Or simply old age.
Sorry no theres not,And when you get the throw rug out do not put these in there they do a lot of damage they can clog the pump.First thing try pushing the start button agin you well have to do this several times the machine has to drain before the door opens,when it open up.put draino-max and let it stand for 1-2hrs and run machine no clothes.And no more throw rugs
You dont say how big this rug is, but I am guessing its not big enough to spreadevenly around the machine. The machine senses an imbalance and willo not spin or failos to spin at a rate that would rekove the water. Try adding some balance to the drum with another object that will evenly spread the load to see if that helops to get rid of the sopping water. BTW any pictures of you whipping the rug around in the backyard? That should make for Utube fame!
does it even spin? check for broken coupler by checking for tub movment when opening lid when you hear motor in spin. if good check that machine advances to spin from neutral drain automatically. let it enter spin from rinse on its own. first it will drain without spin. after 2-3 min of drain motor will pause (with clank) then restart in spin. This pause can be accomplished by opening lid and closing as well but the timer should do it on its own. if bad replace timer.
I use 2 Tablespoons of Liquid Detergent and a 1/2 to 3/4 scoop of Oxyclean and I have had good results in my Front Loader. Clothes come out very clean and there is no residue on the inside of my washer.
I really hate those little rubber pieces that come off of those rugs, they really gum up everything. Just for future reference try to wash those outside with a water hose and a scrub brush. It will save you lots of money in repairs.
As for your current problem try to get as much out of the tub as possible. Then you will have to remove the small kickplate on the bottom of the washer. Get you some towels and a maybe a flat pan to catch some water. The panel will have a few screws around it that will need to be removed. Once you have removed the panel you will see your pump. The front of the pump has a filter that can be unscrewed and removed for cleaning. Unscrew the filter and get ready to catch some water. Maybe as much as a couple gallons. Once you have cleaned it out put the filter back in the pump and leave the panel off. Run the washer throught another cycle and clean the pump out again. You may need to repeat this several times. Hopefully this will solve the problem, if you still have draing issues you could have a clogged drain and for that you may need a plumber. Well good luck to you and I hope I helped.
