SOURCE: over flowing on water discharge

Hi,
This is not a fault with your machine.
The problem lies aquarely with the outlet pipe in the building plumbing. Very often there is a gradual build-up of grease in this pipe somewhere before the pipe gets larger to the main drain.

The first solution is to use a solid or liquid drain cleaner in that pipe - and leave it to work at least overnight.
Then fill a bowl with very hot water and Soda Crystals - basic washing soda.
Flush the pipe with a full bowlfull of this hot water (may need a large mouthed funnel)
Also a hosepipe from the hot tap to a pipe in the outlet will work.

Once clear - you shouldn't have anymore problems.

If you wish, you can wrap a polythene bag around the machine outlet, then force this into the wall drain pipe - to make a better seal. It's not ideal, but may help with pipes that are slow to drain.

SOURCE: washer will not drain or spin with pipe in

Hi.

ok Did you say the drain hose was placed on a spiggot underneath the sink???

the appliance is obviously working as you have tried the drain hose in the sink.

You may find, if you unscrew the drain spiggot, there is a blanking cap. your previous owners put this in place to stop a huge water leak when using the sink

remove cap, refit hose and it should work ok.
Please let me know if I was right?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but this forum does not supply manuals direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home, with experience of addressing problems and helping for free on the web ;-0)

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!

Meanwhile here are my general guidance notes for checking filters and drain motors which should clarify and assist ;-0)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
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 held in by a round cover/knob.

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. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Good luck with both!

Our washer drains and overflows... we have had the lines checked and any clogs removed less than 24 hours ago. Doing laundry tonight and it overflowed again. When cleaning up all the water we tipped t


If the drained water is overflowing at the drain in or on the wall, that drain may be too small in diameter for the volume of water being pumped out of the washer. Because it is pumped out, it is generally moving faster than water that would be drained by gravity. ALSO very important is the height of the drain connection. I had that problem and had to extend the drain pipe about a foot vertically. The entry point of the pipe can be too close to the P trap, which slows down the flow as it changes the direction of flow. If there is not sufficient volume above the trap, it can back up and overflow due to slower flow through the trap.

Hi
There is a filter located in the pipe between the connector to the water outlet and the machine, This sometimes gets clogged. If this dos not solve the issue then time to call a tech. Anyway your machine is just 7 months old and it should still be in the warranty period and the service should be free.

The water won't drain out of the dishwasher.


Remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again. Also check that the valve that controls the directional flow of the water is operating. This too is in the bottom of the machine.

While moving my samsung top washing machine, I think my drain hose pipe has moved down the water level. Now machine is not able to retain the water while washing/soaking. I need to pull the drain hose pipe...


Hi,

Although a few modern washing machines can operate with the drain pipe at any height, most machines will drain the water as soon as the drain pipe is placed below the machine water level.

The simplest solution for your problem would be to ask somebody with some handy man skills or hire a plumber to add a 2 inch PVC pipe to your drainage pipe which extends to a point behind your washing machine & then points upwards, making sure it is long enough to be at a higher point than your machines fullest water level.
This should be a relatively inexpensive alteration & will ensure that water does not drain unless the machine is on its drain cycle.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,
Graeme

Washer less than a year old. Top loading. Will


Have you moved recently, or moved the washer for any reason?

Two things can usually cause that.

First, Some part of the drain hose must always be higher than the highest possible water level in the machine. Remember that water flows downhill. If all the hose is lower then the highest possible water level the machine can never fill since water will drain out hose. So, raise the hose higher than the flat top of the washer and try again.

2A, Inserting the drain hose too far into the house drain. or 2B, sealing out ALL air in the drain line by using a hose too tight in the drain pipe or taping the drain pipe tightly with the drain hose in it can both create a vacuum in the drain line which will actually **** out all the water in the tub. This can be tested by pulling the drain all the way out and aiming it into the tub as you try it. Good Luck.

Running water


Sounds like your stand-pipe has fell over,located behind machine that the drain hose goes into.This pipe must be vertical,and secure.The top of the washers drain hose loop that goes into the stand-pipe, should be as high as your soap dispenser.If this is not the problem then your water pump must be pumping the water out all the time.Can you hear the pump? If so, some faults can force the washing machine into a constant cycle of filling with cold water and pumping the water away if it thinks the washing machine is overheating (possible faulty thermistor).Hopefully its only your stand-pipe causing the loss of water.Lets know how you get on.Good luck.
