Question about Magic Chef CAV4000AWW Top Load Washer

Washer won't drain ....

I know I made a mistake by washing a large mattress pad. It over-loaded my washing machine (top loader), and I had to take out the pad, with the water still in the machine. It didn't ever spin, probably because of the weight. Then, after getting the mattress pad out, I tried completing the wash cycle so it would drain (without any clothes in it), and it won't drain. It will agitate, and act like it's rinsing, but won't drain. Any ideas for what I can do?
Thanks so much.

My washing machine will not drain? Is there a way you can force drain the washing machine. It is a top loader Fisher and Paykel large washing machine? Thank you


If the pump is out then no. Try this. With the power off, while holding the wash temp down button, press the power button. This will put it in diognostic mode. If your pump is not totally shot, you should be able to toggle it on and off with the regular button.

It is not spinning now.


Depending on the make and model top loader or front loader, the most common issues are the lid switch or door lock safety interlock, or the pump filter is clogged and need cleaned. Let me know what machine you have and I can go from there.

Washer not finishing it's rinse/spin cycle


Run any load - large or the least bit bulky (like sheets) on the "BULKY" cycle. It takes longer, but the machine completes the wash. This shouldn't be the way it works. I love the Neptune TL for its retro look and lack of Maytag's classic big cranky knob. Too bad it runs like ****.

28+ year old- Speed Queen Heavy Duty top loader


It sound like you drain hose is siphoning off the rinse water, It needs a standpipe make sure the drain hose is at about the height of the top of the washer, Make sure the drain hose isnt stuck in the drain it also needs an air cap. the drain hose should not lay on the floor to run to the drain

Please let me know if this doesnt solve your problems

Whirlpool LSC9355DQO won't spin and makes grinding noise


grinding noises are never a good sign. My best guess is that the motor coupling is shot. Very inexpensive repair if you're handy. unplug and tip the machine back. locate the motor and remove the clips holding the motor/pump assembly to the transmission. carefully remove the motor and if the coupling is shot, replace. put it back together and should be good to go.
