    I have a diagram for the washing machine, it doesn't diagram the pump, just the hot, cold water switch.  I have looked at the pump, nothing.  The motor runs, it agitates.  I don't know the wire that runs the pump. 



     



    There is a hub, I don't know what goes where inside that hub.



     



    Any advise?

  • chalermchai Oct 17, 2007

    Actually the problem was the switch that locks the top loading door.  It broke, and furthermore this is the 2nd time on this machine that this has happened.  So it wasn't even suspected.  A $20 fix.



     



    Thanks for your help, I stumbled on this site and won't hesitate to try again.

  • chalermchai Oct 17, 2007

    I realize that e mail is a bad way to communicate with people you don't know, but you gave a  kind of a snotty response. 



     



    I gave you the information that I saw, I didn't consider the lid.  Do you think I am trying to trick you or something?



     



    use a bit of courtisey PLEASE



     



    maybe I won't use this site in the future...

Check pump for open circuit electrically, if that is fine and the pump works but just doesn't drain then its a blockage somewhere between the drum and the waste outlet, strip the pipes and clean out, taking care to note original position of any parts and wires etc

    follow it backwards then, the waste pipe from the wall back to the machine, where that ends inside the machine is the pump, and you should either see a belt that drives it, or 2 wires depending on the type and style of machine

    information can only be given on the information that is received, if you don't explain something in proper detail, how do you expect us to get it right first time for you

    when you give detail to others without them actually looking at the machine, even the smallest silliest detail of what it is doing or not doing gives us the best clues

    one line notices just will not get you the right answer, no wonder you had to stumble across it yourself, thats like just saying my car won't start

    use a bit of common sense PLEASE

  • mick d Oct 18, 2007

    the answer was not meant to be snotty or talking down to you, and sorry if it came across that way, i was just trying to explain to you and anyone else reading this page that i can only give info based on what you or anyone else puts down,

    i am an engineer of 20 year plus and yes we engineers can usually get it right most of the time if we get to ask the right questions, had you been on the telephone i would have asked what you may think of may be silly questions but the more info given would help to diagnose it better

    I like many other trade people give time on here trying to help people save money and let them fix the appliances themselves with help from me, after all i don't have to, and yes you are right also, you don't have to come on here, but its you that wanted something for nothing in the first place to save you money on call outs, don't worry i do the same for things i don't know about

    anyway all above aside, i am glad you got the appliance fixed

Fisher Paykel washer won't spin and drain. Any solution? Error looks like no E AP


possible answer for you see the link after reading Error/Fault code 00000101. (The value is 5.) It wasnt draining the water out at the rince cycle. I saw comments on fixya.com that others with the same problem found clothing between the outer bowel & the inner bowel or an item such as a necklace chain or hairclip jamming up the propeller..... (Two days later, see part 2....) I just fixed this F&P GW612. There was a darning needle stuck in the drain motor pump stopping the propeller from spinning around. I fixed it for my mum by watching a couple of You Tube videos. Easy job to do. Took me about 1.5 hours including drawing out the water from the drum with a bucket & jug first. Lay the machine on a soft mat, remove the motor pump from underneath, clean it out. (You could find a foreign object such as a coin, cloth, rubber band etc.) Put it back together & test if it's pumping out water at the rince cycle by doing a low water wash cycle. So happy, job done & I saved my mum some money!! Fisher Paykel GW612 Not rincing spinning part 1

Will not rince at end of wash cycle


If ur machine have additives cycle, check whether the solenoid valve (for opening water inlet to the additives' tray) is working or not. You can check this by listening to the sound of water during additive cycle. If it is not working, you have to replace the water inlet valve unit.

Asko 620 washer won't drain well with heavy load


Washing machine won't drain

When your washing machine won't drain, it could be as simple as a kinked hose or as complicated as a faulty impeller on the pump. Overloading your washing machine can cause items to be swept into the space between the inner and outer tub, leading to clogs in the drain hose or pump. These clogs may be the reason for why your washing machine won't drain. Here are some steps to help you determine the problem and solution:

1. Pinched hose: Is the drain hose at the back of the washer been flattened or twisted in any area? A pinched hose could prevent the water from draining thoroughly. Gently straighten the hose, and make sure there is sufficient room between the back of the washing machine and the wall to prevent a repeat of the problem.

2. Clogged drain hose or pump:
Does the drum spin normally, but the washing machine won't drain the water? Sometimes a piece of clothing, money, fabric or other debris gets into the water between the inner and outer tub. It may then make its way into a drain hose or even into the pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. Call a repair professional for help.

3. Faulty timer: Does your machine fill with water and begin agitating, but the cycle never advances far enough to allow the water to drain? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. Arrange for washing machine repair service.

4. Worn or loose belts: Are clothes still soaked at the end of a wash, even though the washing machine appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. This is a job for the pros.

5. Faulty or jammed internal impeller on pump: When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? The internal impeller that moves the water through the drain pump may be faulty or jammed. A grinding or grating sound is almost always an indication of a coin, button or other object colliding with the impeller. Have a washing machine repair expert determine if the impeller is jammed and can be cleared, or if the pump needs to be replaced.

6. Pump failure: Is your washing machine more than 7 years old? Your pump may simply have worn out. Even if it sounds as though it is running, the pump may not be working well enough to draw the water out of the machine. Replacement parts for pumps are generally unavailable. A new pump may be necessary.

For more troubleshooting steps, see Washing machine won't drain. I hope this helps!

Hi...my washer goes through cycles and then stops at "light" . It won't go through rinse and spin. Help


Make sure your cold water tape is turned on and the screen in the water valve is not plugged up, it may be trying to fill with cold water and cant get any, try filling the washer with cold water on a "wash" cycle to confirm it it fills with "cold" then just the rince cycle ion the timer may be faulty and would need to be replaced

have you checked the water pump that draws the water out of the machine there maybe an obstruction like a sock or something. Make sure the pump is turning freely there maybe a blockage there. Also check the exit hose as well. Gain access from the rear.

Washing machine refills after spin cycle


Can you hear the pump running if not the machine may be syphoning out, if the outlet is into the down pipe too far this can cause it to syphon. The outlet should only be into it by about 6". The machine will fill with more water on the rince than the wash cycle that will cause the problem. If you can hear the pump running the machine mite be over filling there may a blockage in the presure system if you take the lid off (making sure the powers turned off) you will find a round switch with a thin hose comming off it tace the hose and you should find a small bottle this may be blocked. Hope this helps you.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
