Sounds like your drain line is clogged. You may also have stuff clogging a water filter just before the pump, or the water outlet coming from the drum.
It could also be a problem with the pump, but until the drain line is opened up, you still won't be able to empty the water from the washer.
If the water won't drain out of your washing machine, either something is stuck in the drain hose or pump, or the pump is broken. Both fixes are simple if you're even just a little bit handy with tools. We're showing the repair on a Maytag washing machine. What is wrong with a washer that does not spin?
If your washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drivewashing machines do not have belts.) To diagnose the problem, do the following: 1Check the washing machine's spin cycle.
If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing.
error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the
control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply
needs to be reset.
Step 1: Unplug the washing machine. Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds. Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.
Are there soap suds visible in the drum? Over-sudsing
is the main cause of LE error codes. Using non-HE (high efficiency)
detergents or too much detergent will cause stress on the motor. In
addition, detergent residue can also cause leaking and odor. Follow
these steps to resolved an LE error code caused by over-sudsing.
Step 1: Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve. Step 2: Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer. Step 3: Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected. Step 4: Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle. Step
5: After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items
from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and
then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light
residue from the drum. Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the
drum of the washer.
Hi, Initially unplug the washing machine.While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for five seconds. Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the DL code is cleared. If you still face the problem then follow the procedure:
Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.
Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.
Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.
Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle. After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause]. This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum.
Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer. Hope this helps.
Open the front door and load the clothing into the washing machine. Check the owner's manual for the maximum load size. Overloading the washing machine may interfere with its ability to spin the clothes and rinse them clean.
Fill the detergent receptacle on the front of the washing machine, making sure not to fill it past the indicated line. Always use a liquid detergent that is designed for front-loading washing machines.
Add bleach or fabric softener, if needed. Most front-loading washing machines have a section for fabric softener inside the detergent receptacle. Check the instructions on the bleach to find out when it should be added to the washing machine.
Close the front door of the washing machine and make sure it locks into place. The machine usually will not turn on unless the door is securely locked.
Check the owner's manual to find out how to select the different options and wash cycles. As a general rule, use warm or cold water for most types of colored clothing. Hot water should only be used when washing white cotton items.
Start the front-loading washing machine and let it run through the entire wash, rinse and spin cycles before opening the door to unload the clothing.
If your washer is the type that all rinses are in cold water only this would make sense that in the winter months when the water is at it's coldest the clothes will feel cold after the spin cycle. If your washer has a warm rinse cycle and when you select the warm rinse option the clothes feel cold after the spin, then maybe the hot water supply line is plugged.I recommend disconnecting the hot water hose at the back of the washer and check the screen that is at the fill valve on the washer and make sure it isn't clogged with sediment or calcium build up or any other foreign material that would keep the hot water from entering the washer.If all is well there, suspect either the water temp selector switch or the hot water fill valve. Good luck !
You are better off swapping the valves over in the machine until you can buy a replacement valve. I've done this for a month or so until I replaced the valve. Works as long as you only use a cold wash and your cold water is not too cold as to make the machine want to add some hot. If it does this then simply press start to clear the fault.
I started clothes washing machine with one load of clothes.
Wash and rinse process completed, as it came to spin,
Machine stop, only I heard was running motor. I opened
machine and found coupler is cracked (broken) and was
unable to rotate the gear.
I replaced new coupler and machine started to work normal.
