Tub has come off its springs?? rince cycle clothes still very wet. how to fix diy??


Step 1 - Record Specifications Carefully read your owner's manual to find the specifications for the washing machine drain hose. If you are unable to locate it, look at the steel tab at the back of the washing machine, and write down the model and serial number instead.
Step 2 - Purchase New Hose Head to your hardware store and show this information to a representative to get help in finding an appropriate replacement drain hose.
Step 3 - Cut the Power and Water Before you start replacing the washing machine drain hose, make sure to pull the power cord out the wall socket. Better yet, turn off the power supply to the washing machine at the circuit breaker.
Similarly, turn the knob on the water supply line to the washer. If you cannot locate it then temporarily turn off the water altogether. Afterward, lift and shift the drain tube into a bucket, so that any accumulated fluid in the hose will fill this instead of spilling out all over the floor.
Step 4 - Remove the Old Drain Hose Your drain hose will be held in place by clamps attached at the back of the washing machine. Hold the clamp with pliers and unscrew it out of its position with a screwdriver. After removing the clamp, inspect it. If it is not damaged or corroded by rust it can be used again, but if not toss it away and install a new clamp after the replacement hose is in place.
Step 5 - Secure the New Drain Hose Take the new hose and slide the clamp on; it should go through the straight end. Now, place the hose onto the connector located at the back of the washing machine, and slide the clamp to where the hose rests on the connector. With a wrench, make the hold of the clamp tight. Make sure it is fit in properly so that you will have no problems with leakage.
Step 6 - Put the Machine Back and Test Place the washing machine back in position, and reconnect the drain tube to the pipe. Then, turn on the power supply and open the water supply so you can test that everything is working as it should.

Kitchenaid KAWS700G will fill and wash but won't drain and spin


My washer also did not drain. I disconnected the power supply and water hoses and the drain hose and lay the machine on its side.. The motor is at the bottom. Once I disconnected the hose and put my finger to look inside. There is a rubber stopper and once I moved that aside and looked inside I found my baby sock stuck in the the pump. Once I gently pulled the sock out It came out easily. Lucky me the motor is in working condition.
My washing machine was manufactured I believe in 1997.

This is the first time ever took look under any washing machine.
Best of luck!

Where does the grey hose connect? I'm not sure if


First we need to know what diameter said Grey Hose is? I assume you are speaking of a Washing Machine?? If so, typically they are equipped with 3 hoses as follows: One for Hot Water Supply and a Matching hose for Cold Water Supply. Both of these hoses are equipped with 3/4 Inch Female Housse Thread connectors identical to a Garden Hose. So that delegates the Third Hose to DRAIN. It is LARGER and usually is attached inside the Washing Machine to the Water Pump and passes through the rear cover and ultimately must be formed into a "U" bend and inserted into the Drain. It is necessary to secure this hose to the Drain and Supply device so that it cannot blow out of the Drain while the Washing Machine is Pumping Out. All Washing Machines come with User Manuals and Installation Instruction Sheets. Like Automobile Owners Manuals, they should be read cover to cover and stored for future reference. You can find most Washer and Dryer Manuals online. Use Google Search to find them.

Water drains out automatically from samsung fully auto machine top loading


Make sure your drsain hose is higher than the water level and not sealed in the drain line in your home. Also, make certain it is not sitting in the water in the drain line as well....it must have air to prevent siphoning.

I have an f3 and f4 error code on asko washing machine front loader. i know what the error codes are just dont know where they are anyone can help I need it thanks


F3 indicates a problem with the drain pump. At the bottom left of the machine, theres a square cut-out. This is where the drain pump is located. Using a flat head screwdriver or similar object, insert in opening on right side and gently pry open the drain pump cover.
Once the cover has been opened, be careful when opening the drain pump, as there is always a little water left in the drain pump. Before you open the drain pump, place a small container on the floor below the drain to catch the water. Pull the small black hose from the door and let the water drain into the container. You can now open the drain pump to clean it out. Also clean the pump rotor at the back of the pump housing. Replace the drain cover and reconnect the drain hose securely back to its position on the door. Close the cover.

F4 indicates a problem with the water inlet valve. Make sure the water supply is fully turned on. If no water enters the machine, then turn water supply off. Disconnect the hoses from the water inlet valve to see if the strainer in the inlet connection is blocked. Reconnect the hoses and turn on water supply. Hopefully this solves your problem.

Water will not drain cannot open door


The possible problems here are blockages or pump failure. Blockages are the more likely explanation but pumps can fail. If the washing machine will not empty the water out you may also not be able to open the door on some washing machines although these days it's much rarer to have a pneumatic lock on the door due to cost cutting (if a washing machine has a pneumatic door safety lock a rubber hose is connected to the door interlock from the pressure chamber bottle on the tub - water in the tub forces air up this tube and locks the door, which is released when the water is pumped out and the air pressure drops).
Some washing machines have a filter at the front of the machine that can be checked for blockages. Sometimes the filter is hidden behind a removable trim or panel at the base of the front panel. If your washing machine has a water pump filter and a filter drain hose you should be able to drain the water from the washing machine into a bowl without moving the washing machine. Open the pump filter flap and pull the small drain hose forward. Take the bung out and drain into a bowl. It's likely to be painstakingly slow but at least you don't have to try and pull out a heavy washing machine full of washing and water.
If your washing machine doesn't have a pump filter, or it has a pump filter but no draining hose then it's a bit trickier. To drain the washing machine, you will need to remove the drain hose from the drain pipe at the back of the washing machine, and lower it into a bowl or bucket. Many plumbers now plumb the drain hose into the U bend directly under the sink instead of a separate waste pipe at the back of the washer. If yours is connected directly to the u-bend, you can usually unscrew it easily. Remember though, that with the pipe disconnected from the U bend, any water poured down the sink will flood out into the cupboard until the hose is reconnected.

Once you have drained the water, you need to check for blockages in the pump by unscrewing the pump filter. If none is found, sometimes a blockage can occur in the plastic connector that the drain hose is connected to at the sink end (if connected this way)
Once you have the drain hose disconnected and lowered into a bowl or bucket the water should siphon out as long as the pipe is low enough. You are likely to get several bowls full of water from the washing machine. If little or no water comes out then it may be blocked by an item of clothing like a sock and it won't be possible to empty the machine this way or it is going to be a long process.
Once the last bit of water has drained out, the washing machine may now spin as the safety system for preventing a spin while water is in the machine will now recognize the water has gone and allow a spin. Keep the pipe low down and in the bowl or bucket and put the washing machine on a spin only program. Note, this last step is not strictly necessary as once drained, the door should open. However, you might prefer to try to spin a few more bowls of water out.
Clearly if you put more water into the machine it is likely to fail again until the fault is rectified but these instructions should at least get the clothes out.
Other possible obstructions could be inside the sump hose leading to the water pump. Many Hotpoint washing machines have a filter inside the sump hose which gets blocked. Finally, the pump itself can be faulty.

Automatic washing machine plumbing requirement


The automatic clothes washing machine counts on a pressured water system - like what is provided in a town / city or from a well that has a pressure system to deliver water at pressure like when you open a valve for a bath tub, sink or shower.
You need to have a plumber provide valve/faucets for both hot and cold water. The valves are sometimes called a "hose bibb" with a threaded end that the hoses connect to and then are connected to the back of the washer. When the hoses are connected and the valves are open, the automatic washer will open a solenoid valve when the time is right to allow water to flow in, then closees. Some owners keep the hose bibb valves open forever after they connect the washer, others close the valves after they are done washing all loads for the day/week.
You will also need a drain provided that connects into the house plumbing. The Whirlpool Duet provides the drain hose from the washer which drops into the pipe the plumber provides. It is important that the drain pipe allow air to move past the washers drain hose, to allow proper draining.
Hope that helps. Please post back how things come out, OK?

Frigidaire front load washer - e10 and water hose shaking


E10 code indicates there is no water supply.This can be confirmed by :
  1. Shut off the faucet to stop water supply to the washer.
  2. Disconnect and pulling the supply hose off the washer to confirm the E10Code
    • Opening the faucet and watch for running water



E10 also means that your cold water is coming in too slow, disconnect the cold water hose and check to see if the screen on your washing machine is clogged. If the screen is clean and the hose has good pressure then you will need to replace the water valve on your machine--- this is the piece that the hoses directly connect to.
