Why won't all water come out of drain tube because when trying to clean filter lots of water comes out on floor?

I have tried to drain water from tube on lower front of washer. About 1 oz. comes out after 25 loades of clothes. Then as I am removing filter beside drain tube, water is pouring out on floor. Why? Filter has nothing in it. So why is water not go to drain tube?

Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

SOURCE: How to clean out drain hose

I was actually able to fix this problem by blowing out the drain hose with an air compressor. The drain hose was full of beach sand.

The impeller may have come off the pump motor shaft. Generally, you will notice a louder sound when the pump runs if this happened.
Unplug the machine. Remove the filter recess by removing the one screw inside and using a putty knife at the left and / or right edge and popping it out. Pull the machine out about 18 inches and tip it back, resting it against the wall. Remove two more screws behind where the recess was holding the pump housing on. Reach under the machine and remove pump. There is a tab to depress under the pump housing to release it from the base. The pump motor is held onto the housing by three screws. Remove them and inspect the impeller to see if it has come off the shaft. If it has, pushing it back on will not solve the problem, as it will come off again. Install new pump motor and reassemble. Clean washer tub with the longest, hottest cycle and three Ah-fresh tablets, Whirlaway hot tub cleaner, Smellywasher cleaner (smellywashercleaner.com) or Tide washer cleaner. Repeat. From now on, use only 1 tablespoon of HE laundry detergent per load (1/2 T if 2X concentrate) and only 1 teaspoon of fabric softener per load if you use it. (these machines use very little water, and thus require reduced amounts of additives to work properly)

In all likelihood the rubber drain hose is clogged. I had the same problem with my LG front loader. The hose was clogged with sand and dirt almost the entire length of the hose. The following solution is far simpler than taking the dryer apart to clear the drain hose. Besides I figure this same thing could keep reoccurring with all the sand and dirt we get in our clothes here in East Texas.

I purchased about 4 feet of 3/16 inch OD vinyl tubing and adapted it to fit on the end of a garden hose. The adapter gizmo included a valve so I could control the water flow and not give myself a bath. A picture of the gizmo is included below. Make sure that when you connect the water hose to the faucet that the faucet valve is just slightly opened and that the gizmo valve is closed. Using the gizmo is straight forward. First remove the drain filter and than insert the vinyl tubing in the end of the rubber drain hose and slowly open the valve on the gizmo. Make sure you have a large pan or bucket underneath the drain hose to catch the debris and water. Slowly advance the tubing up inside the hose until it won’t go any further. By this time water will also be running out of the drain filter cavity which will indicate the clog has been removed. Continue back flushing for a few more seconds to assure all the debris has been cleared, than clean up and you’re finished.

After I drain water from the drain tube, I pull out the filter and a lot more water comes out there. What would prevent all of the water coming out the drain tube. And how do I fix that.


I assume that you are referring to the small rubber drain tube that is coiled up in the filter tray compartment. Manually draining the tub with this small tube will remove most of the water, but a certain amount is still present in the sump. It is best to place an old towel on the floor around the filter section when removing it.
The OE error code tells you that there is a problem with your drain pump, Check the pump impeller to see whether it turns freely and the coil for continuity, check that the coil does not have zero Ohms or no reading at all, the coil should have a resistance reading on the meter.

Why won't the aircondition drain won't drain


If you are saying the ac is dumping water into the cabin floor, the drain tube is probably stopped up. The tube should be under the car near the passenger's feet. You would insert a coat hanger or other stiff object to clean out the tube.

Dishwasher won't start - I get an F7 message on my ADP5966


Remove the filter on the floor of the machine, including the metal grill. Press & hold the start button (like you do when you want to cancel a programme). this will drain the water out of your clogged up drain outlet. Clean your filter and grill and replace it. My guess is that the sensor in the drain (a little glass tube) measures whether the water going out is clean enough to decide that your dishes are now rinsed correctly. If your filter's clogged, the water going down the drain is still dirty. After a while it gets sick of trying and stops the machine. F7 in whirlpoolese may mean "Clean my filter

I need a picture of the windshield drain on a 2001 catera cadillac. It seems the tube does not go all the way down to the drain. It is leaking into the body this can't be good.


You need to clean out the cabin filter drain tube. The cabin filter housing allows the air to enter the cabin through the HVAC system. When water gets in here, the drain tube allows it to escape. If the drain tube is plugged with leaves and dirt, the housing fills up and it overflows into passenger floor area.
Remove the filter, clean the drain tube (prepare to get your feet wet) and put in a new filter.
The filter is below the pass side WS wiper under the plastic cover.
