This usually indicates the pump is sucking air.

Washing machine won't empty water and the time is not moving


unplug the machine remove the rear cover locate the water pump see if you can rotate the cooling fan as sometimes a button or other debris blocks the pump, remove the water pipe and clear the blockage replace pipe and run machine if there is no blockage then the water pump may need replacing from the manufactures website eric

Washer spins but doesn't get the water out


hi Ruth.
Washing Machine Won't Drain Water Last updated on November 7th, 2017
If your washing machine won't drain water out this article gives advice on how to fix it. If the washing machine has only just been plumbed in and it won't empty then check this article first - you might not need to drain or pull the washier out - won't drain after being moved or plumbed in. Otherwise, before trying to repair it you need to manually drain out the water that's stuck inside.
If your washing machine is stuck full of water because it's gone dead, or won't drain after being connected to a different u-bend you need to read the appropriate paragraphs in the how to drain washing machine link above before doing anything else.
What are the main causes of not draining? If the washer appears to be functioning normally but simply won't pump away the water these are the most common causes -
  • A blockage somewhere
  • Something jammed in the pump
  • Pump failure
  • An electrical fault
Is the water pump running - or not? On the spin cycle, is the pump running but water isn't being pumped out? If yes read on. There are two places to check for blockages. If the pump isn't running then jump to - If the pump isn't running.

Is the pump making a loud grinding noise?

If the pump is making a loud grinding noise, either constantly or intermittently, there is likely to be something inside being tossed around by the impeller. It's possible for a pump to have bearing failure but in most cases it will be an obstruction (such as a coin) stuck inside the pump. With the water drained out and pump filter removed it should be possible to see into the pump (where the impeller is) to check for obstructions.

Checking for blockages

Is the drain hose connected to the u-bend under the sink? If so try checking the spigot for blockages. Note that if you cannot hear the pump running don't bother. A blockage here would not stop the pump running, nor would it make the pump stop making its normal noise.
This is a simple fix, and can be done without moving the washing machine. The drain hose is connected to the u-bend by a plastic spigot pushed into the end of the drain hose. Unscrew the spigot to inspect inside. Also check inside the u-bend where the spigot screws on. A small button, or accumulated bits of stringy threads and lint from laundry can get stuck here. It takes surprisingly little to stop the water being pumped away at this point.

Check for a blocked pump filter

Next you need to check for blockages in the main pump filter if your washing machine has one. Most do. You will need to have drained out as much water as possible before removing the filter. Also, put down large bath towels before removing the pump filter to soak up the water that will inevitably come out.
Taking the filter out It should be easy to pull the filter out. If unsure check your instruction manual or the pump filter link above. If the filter appears jammed and won't come out read the advice in the pump filter article. Don't make the mistake of assuming that anything found in the filter will account for the fault. The pump filter would need to be physically blocked by something like a sock, or a buildup of lint to stop the washing machine from pumping out.
If all you find is a few buttons and coins this will not be the reason your washing machine isn't pumping the water. Only an object actually jamming the pump impeller or a substantial blockage of the filter would account for not draining.
If the pump isn't running The most common reason a pump isn't running is because an obstruction is physically jammed inside it. Check that the impeller turns and it's not jammed (or broken and loose on the shaft). It may have a little magnetic resistance at one point but it should be at the same point on each revolution.
The impeller should turn fairly easily. It might be possible to hear a gentle hum in place of the normal pump sound although not necessarily. A hum would indicate the pump his electrically OK and is trying to run but is jammed. With water drained out of the washing machine remove the filter and check for obstructions. If no pump filter is fitted the pump may need removing to check.

Pump isn't jammed

If the pump is not jammed then it needs testing with a continuity test meter for open circuit resistance across the pump's terminals. An open circuit pump is clearly faulty and needs replacing.
if none of the above helps you out you might have to call an engineer out.

Im on tank water using a onga pump, loss of water pressure at taps,how do i get it back tanks full, whole system is only 6mths old,thanks


check for a blockage at the pump inlet or outlet from the tank
(leaves, animal etc)
check that the motor is running at full rpms ( problem start/run capacitor--no guaranteed life of capacitor)
check for water leak after pump

Pool water will not circulate even though pump is running


if the water doesnt circulate, there could be many causes. start at the very beginning. does the pump sound 'normal'? if there is rattling or buzzing, the pump might not be turning and there fore no circulation. is there water in the system? even though most pumps are 'self priming', you should fill the hopper with water to prime it. are the lines open? make sure the supply to pump from skimmer is free of blockage and that the return lines to pool are open and free from blockage. if all this looks fine, then you have to get deeper into diagnosis.

Bosch classixx dishwasher sgs43c12 not draining.


The only way to eliminate a pump issue is to actually remove the pump and check it internally, it doesn't take much to block them and also the impellers can come loose, It sound like you are handy with tools so i suggest removing the drain pump and while it's off check the hoses that run to and from the pump for obstructions and make sure the impeller is not loose.

I,ve a LG VM-1433IFD model and I,ve had it unblocked and now its coming up on screen as OE fault help


Hi,
The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly.

Causes
A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system.


Thank You

Check your impeller in the seawater pump ( at the front of the engine )
If the impeller blades stays even lightly bent after removal, change the impeller.
Check for obstructions in the hoses.
Remove the water hose going to the exhaust.
Run the engine, if here you have a good water flow ( more than at the exhaust itself ) the the exhaust mixer is obstructed. Try to clean out with HCl acid. USE ACID resistand GLOVES. Rince twice as well after the obstruction is gone...

a few things to check, first off is adequate water supply(obviously).. next check your drain system, if your unit gravity drains look for a blockage, but if you have a secondary drain pump to pump away water check for proper operation, if that pump fails the machine will no longer let water in( thinks it full and no need to produce more ice if it cant get rid of old water
