During short spin cycles between rinses it doesn't pump water out

Hi, I had my washer for 7 or 8 years, no problems except for now. During rinse cycles it's supposed to pump the water out then start spinning and continue pumping water out, then take fresh water and do it over. Unfortunatelly it will pump the water out but when it starts spinning it then stops pumping the water out. The pump makes noise like it's pumping but it's not. I unscrewed the filter during one of those spins and about 2 gallons of water came out to the floor, I then looked inside and it seemed like the water was trying to come back from the pump, like if it was pumping the wrong way. Does anyone have any idea what's going on? It just makes rinse cycles inefficient cause the spin will extract the dirty water but then not pump it and then another rinse cycle just adds clean water to the dirty water instead of an empty machine. Thanks!

    The pump works, it only doesn't work during the first 3 spin cycles during the normal wash cycle (I don't use the other cycles). During the final spin the pump works. So the pump itself is fine it's just seems like the washer was "forgetting" to turn on the pump even though it sounds like it's working. I will unscrew the back and observe the pump, or maybe disassamble it (which is a pain cause I have a friend who has the same washer and I put her pump apart and then tried to put it back together and it was a pain). I'll post with the results.

Try looking to see if the little motor is spinning the drain pump. It is in the bottom right. Occasionally I get a small metal shard which locks the pump and therefore-no draining. You can undo everything and check the pump for blockage. Then if need be, replace the mechanisim. The parts are all on line, as is the manual. or call 800 776-3538

Duet washer leaks during use; rinse cycle?


Check the water pump hose connections and the water pumps housing bolts themselves could have loosened from vibration. more likely the hose connections on the pump itself though. Hope this helps.

The washer will not drain water during the rinse and spin cycle


The pump is not switched on during the cycle and this circuit must be traced from the timer output. However if the drain works well in the last cycle then the pump is alright. Hence the pump circuit switch during the rinse and spin has to be traced and confirmed. Good day

Agitator won't spin during wash/rinse cycle. It's


Hi,

There could be several reasons for washer not to fill .Fill washer with water and wait for the timer to get to the drain mode.Unplug the washer from the electric outlet.Open the case, and disconnect the water hose from the outlet of the water pump.If you get water pouring out from the pump, then plug that up and check the hose to the sewer. If that is clogged, then you have found the problem.Some washers have a self cleaning filter in that hose somewhere. Check that to be sure it is working properly.Reassemble hose from step 3.Plug washer back in. If it pumps out now, then you are done. If it doesn't, then the water pump is probably defective, so replace it.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com
