Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Try all of this first!
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi.

You need to check the drain filter located in front of the machine at the bottom, behind a trim panel or a service door. If the problem occurs again the machine is faulty and must be repaired. Parts such as drain system, drain pump, pressure switch and control panel may be responsible for drain problems.

Check the position of the drain hose. Ensure that the height is as specified by the manual or you get siphoning and drain does not end.

Access the drain filter. With most front loaders this located in front at the bottom in a corner, there should be a trim or an access panel.Top loaders have an access panel at the back, or more commonly the pump is accessed from underneath, bending the appliance on one side and securing it.

The machine has a pressure switch. It is a sensor connected to a long thin rubber hose. The pressure switch is often in control assembly. Clean the hose and the switch. One way to test the pressure switch is by blowing into the switch, but manufacturers say this must not be done as you can damage a good switch.The pressure switch is difficult to test in full. Testing is done either reading voltages while machine is working or reading Ohms at the switch with tub empty and full. For safety reasons I suggest users to avoid performing tests or maintenance that must be done with power on.

Here a page about drain/spin problem.

Start checking drain hose and drain filter. If machine is a front loader the drain filter access is located behind the door at the front bottom side of the machine.

If you need parts see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Regards.

Take the front top panel off, usually held on by a few screws, be careful not to pull to far away from machine. Check to make sure all wires are okay(not fried) and that all screws and clips are tightly connected. Sometimes the agitation can loosen the connections inside the control panel, especially if your machine is not balanced properly

Samsung vrt front load washer WF218ANB/XA Burned up the drain pump. Installed a new one, now washer will work until the spin cycle. In spin cycle the door lock clicks and it will not drain or spin


Make sure the drain filter is not clogged. Most Samsung have an access door in the lower right hand corner to access and clean out this filter. If this is clogged or the drain hose is clogged, you will have these spin and drain problems.

Unlocking your washer so it actually works.


If the green cycle light is flashing on then off, this usually means the cycle is paused. The lid lock should unlock when in pause mode, if not you will need to press and hold the "Pause/Play" button to clear the cycle completely, if there is water in the unit, it will drain first, then unlock the lid and be on standby to start a new cycle.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Judging from your description 2 problems- filter and lid!
Filter
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.

Lid
There is likely to be a problem with either the lid/door solenoid/lock or the 'lid/door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

Washer will not spin...I noticed that in spin cycle the lid no longer locks. We messed with it and then the lid locked and it did spin, but then it stopped working. The washer is only 5 years old if that.


Hello,

Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Call a plumber if you cannot remove the clogs.

Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning or draining.

Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

Close the door completely. The washer will not operate if the door is not securely closed.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

Maytag neptune top loader-will not start


Hello tinagomez479,

Some basic questions for troubleshooting;
Your machine type is a FVA6800AW/FAV9800AW correct?

Any errorcodes to the console?

Can you tell me what this action was for? “”We took it apart and cleaned it and put it back together and it worked good for about 5 loads then the water stopped draining and now it won't start again.”” Was this a Clutch clean up for dc/UC errors?

Does the clicking noise come from the console area like relays clicking or down below where the clutch pulley is located?

When you press the start button do the lid locks lock the lid?

Can you enter into Service Mode? If so can, can you turn on the drain pump for me? This will let us know if the Control Board is at least functioning in Service Mode and will take commands.

Go to page 16 of the Service Manual lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode and see if the drain pump motor runs.

Here is the process; close the lid and enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00” Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on do you hear it run? Stop the test as the SM states with the off button or hit the Presoak key.

You mentioned it stopped draining, if the Control Board will take the command in Service Mode we can at least get rid of any standing water in the wash tub. When it stopped draining in the wash cycle did you take any error codes to the console like “ND”

Can you also try a Spin Only cycle and see if that will start and complete?

If you can’t do anything at the console pull the 120VAC power plug to the washer for 10 seconds then re-power up and try all above again.

Error codes are very helpful so please let me know what if any error codes you take to the console with your machine issue.
