SOURCE: How do I check drain

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor. The bit about checking the motor is near the end ;-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!) and most 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!
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!

Good luck!
John C

I need to find the reset button. It will not drain. This has happened before but I can't remember where the reset button is.


Sometimes, small objects or articles of clothing can get caught in the drain pump. To determine if anything is blocking the drain pump, remove the drain pump and check the pump for obstructions. If the drain pump is clear of obstructions, but is still noisy during the drain cycle, replace the drain pump.Sometimes, socks and other small articles of clothing can get into the drain system and clog the pump hose or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump and check for any obstructions.First, check the drain hose to determine if it is kinked, twisted, or bent. If the drain hose is bent, straighten it out. In addition, remove the drain hose and check it for obstructions. If the drain hose has any obstructions, try to remove them. If necessary, replace the drain hose.

Will not drain water it might be clogged with lint


Most likely lint, or paper lodged in the drain pump. The pump is easily accessible at the base of the machine. After unplugging the machine, put down a towel or blanket and tilt the machine forward so it rests on the front. You will see the drain hose connected with a solid clamp. Remove the clamp and pull the hose off. You should see another "mounting" screw that holds the drain pump in place. Unscrewing this screw should allow you to remove the drain pump for inspection.

Once out, most debris can be cleared with a small flathead screwdriver. Once you are sure the pump is clear, reassemble and turn the machine on. In almost every case, the machine will function normally again.

NOTE: If the drain pump is clear, the problem may be either a clog in the relief tube (where the hose empties the waste water to) or a bad drain pump all together.

Fisher & Paykel GW611 Excellence does not pump water out. All lights are on and when it is suppose to pump, you can hear the noise, but no water coming out of the hose!


It sounds like the drain pump or the diverter valve is restricted. Check to make sure that the drain hose is clear then disconnect power and lay the machine's front on a padded surface to access the drain pump and the diverter valve at the bottom of the tub. Remove the pump's inlet and outlet hoses then check and clear from any debris that may prevent water from draining out. Check the impeller for any damage or restriction.

Check the diverter valve for the same condition as the pump described above. T
he diverter valve is where the drain pump and the recirculation pump inlet hoses are attached from. Make sure the valve is in the drain position while the drain pump is working. Replace the drain pump and/or the diverter valve if deemed necessary.

It says it is not draining properly. What should I do?


There are 3 places to check:
  1. Drain tube
  2. Drain hose
  3. Drain pump
Debris often clogs a line or pump once it works it's way out of clothing. This could be a piece of paper, a crayon, a piece of gum ie. First check where the hose pumps out into the drain tube/line. A clogged line would back up all the way into the washing machine. If this is clear, check the drain hose for debris. Lastly, if the top 2 are clear, it's most likely in the drain pump itself.

The washer will not spin. All the lights are flashing and the indicator has an "LD" showing. The washer is 4.5 cu ft, 2006.


LD does mean long drain so the best thing to check is the drain pump itself and the connections to the drain pump. Remove all the water out manually (as much as possible) then tip the machine backwards so you can get underneath of it. Near the back is the drain pump and it's connected to the drain hose itself. Disconnect the drain hose as well as the hose coming from the tub and see if anything is jamming the drain pump motor or hoses. If everything checks clear and good, replace the drain pump motor, otherwise just clear out the blockage.

I am getting service code 37, what does that mean and how can I fix it?


It's error code 37 and it means pump blocked error. Either the drain hose is clogged or kinked, the diverter valve has failed, or the pump itself is restricted or not working at all. Check to make sure that the drain hose is clear then disconnect power and lay the machine on its front on a cushioned surface to access the drain pump and the diverter valve. Remove the pump's inlet and outlet hoses then check and clear them from any debris that may prevent water from draining out. Check the impeller for any damage or restriction. Make sure the impeller is not frozen or blocked.

Check the diverter valve for the same condition as the pump described above. The diverter valve is where the drain pump and the recirculation pump inlet hoses are attached from. Make sure the diverter valve is in the drain position while the drain pump is working. Replace the drain pump and/or the diverter valve if deemed necessary.

Maytag neptune front load washing machine will not fully discharge water after the rinse cycle...HELP???


Check the drain hose and clear it from any debris that might be blocking the water from draining out completely. If the drain hose is clear of debris, check and clean the pump. Disconnect the machine from the power outlet before servicing for safety purposes.

Remove the rear access panel to access the pump and disconnect the wiring harness from the terminals of the drain pump and the pressure switch.

Loosen the clamps holding the drain hose and the tub hose to the pump assembly. It is a good idea to spread a towel under the pump before loosening the clamps.

Remove the hoses and rotate the pump assembly counterclockwise to release the pump assembly support legs from the keyed slot in the base of the washer. Remove the pump assembly from the washer.

Clear the pump impeller from any debris that might be causing it to work improperly. Clean the tub and the drain hose.

Reassemble the pump, the hoses, and reconnect the wires to the terminals of the pressure switch and the drain pump. Reinstall the rear access panel and run the machine.

Replace the pump (part #25001052) if water still do not drain out completely.

Remove the plastic bag covering the pressure switch. Press in the locking tabs on the back of the pressure switch and pivot the pressure switch off the pump bracket.

Grasp the pressure switch and lift the nipple of the pressure switch from the pump cap.

Install the pressure switch into the new pump assembly in reverse of the steps above.

Standing water in bottom of dishwasher


The first thing to try is to clear out debris from strainer area, you may need a Philips head screw driver for this. Clear out and then attempt to put the unit through its cycle.

The second thing I would try, is unattach drain hose from drain to sink, either blow in it or use a blower side of shop vac to force air into the hose. Reset dishwasher, and try again.

Not knowing how handy you are, you can pull the dishwasher out, please turn off circuit before doing so, also make sure you have towels handy. Unattached drain hose at base of drainage pump. Clear out hose and remove debris on bottom of pump. Reattach the hose and run through cycle..

If these do not work your issue is with a bad pump.
