Re: water pump making noise

If the dime was pulled from the pump it most likely damaged the impeller and the pump should be replaced

Loud grinding noise when water is drained

Based on your description, there is a possibility that you have an item caught in between the stainless steel spin basket and the plastic outer tub. Use a bright flashlight and check the inner spin basket holes for an item such as a screw or nail (or underwire) that could be sticking through one of the holes in that spin basket and protruding down into the tub. If you find an item in that area, then removing it may fix your problem.

If necessary, shine the light through the holes in the spin basket to try to find the item that is making the rubbing noise. Check the bottom of that tub to see if you can find the item. Pull back the inner lip of that rubber door but and check for an item that could be stuck in that area.

You can pull the drain pump filter and clean it as shown in the image below. That procedure is also in your owner's manual. Here is a link for the full owner's manual in case you need it:

. An item stuck in that drain pump can also make a loud grinding noise even though we are assuming that you have an item stuck between the spin basket and the outer plastic tub at this time. It is worth it to clean out that pump filter and maximize the flow of drain water in the washer. Check that pump area for any debris or foreign objects (coins).

Pull that dispenser drawer out and check the outlet of that component for an item that could have slipped into and through that dispenser drawer area.

Hopefully you will find the cause of that grinding noise using the tips described above. If not, you may need to have a service technician examine the washer. If you want to go further on your own, you can

unplug the washer

and follow the steps shown in this video to disassemble the washer and check further for the cause of that problem:

. Keep in mind that the front door boot seal is held on by strong spring clamps. It is not that difficult to remove the spring clamps but they are challenging to re-install without the use of some special tools that a technician carries. If you need further help with this problem, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician examine and repair the washer, you can schedule service through this link:

Washer will not drain

Hello,the drain hose COULD be plugged.
Mine had the PUMP INLET plugged with lint/dimes.

That's right, three dimes and some lint kept the water from getting to the pump.

For even an inexperienced handiman, the fix is easy.
2) Open access door in middle of back panel - 4 screws
3) Disconnect pump inlet hose - pump is on the floor/left as you face the inside from the rear. Have lots of towels handy as water will run out of the tub. This is a simple hose clamp - you dont have to remove the clamp - only loosen enough to remove the hose.

You can tell the inlet hose as it comes from the tub.
The outlet hose exits the pump and exits the machine.

4) stick your finger into the pump inlet and feel for any debris. I have found much lint and small coins. Somehow dimes get into the pump inlet and make perfect check valves preventing water from getting into the pump.
Remove the debris.

5) reconnect the pump inlet hose
6) replace back access panel.
7) plug back in and test.
If it does not drain now, you may need a new pump.

For even a handyman with four thumbs, this procedure should take less than 30 minutes !

Water pump out??

The washer filled with too much water, causing a switch to trip. Then everything stops. It tries to drain during FL but if it can't drain, the washer powers down.Choose Drain & Spin to let the washer drain. Then you have to take the washer apart. Fix the problem. I personally can't tell you what to do because I don't own a Calypso.

3.5 super capcity front loader

The drain pump had $0.86 in it (three quaters, a dime and a penny), a gaurdian angel medal and a sock stuck in the pump inlet. It was easy to fix by removing the lower fromt cover (two srews), taking off the spring clamp on the hose at the front of the pump and removing the rubber trap hose thingy.

Washer making a weird noise

forgot to include the most important step! We got the dimes out after wadding up a small piece of duct tape, sticky side out, and using locking forceps to grip the tape while fishing out the dimes from the drain pump.

Washer will not drain or spin motor making clicking noise

Likely has debris in the filter.
Open the bottom access panel (3 screw on bottom front lip)
open the filter access and be ready for some water spill ,have towels.
clean and check the pump impellers for freedom of movement.
if you still have noise after this you may have to go deeper past the pump and remove the hoses as the debris can be past the pump now.
Or take the machine outside and run water up the pump using a water hose to clear it. be inventive

Neptune washer makes horrible noise - now won't drain

Does the washer make noise while the drum is spinning? Or, is making noise when the drain pump comes on? If the drum is spinning and making a lot of noise the rear bearings are usually bad. They cannot be removed from the drum, however. The entire outer tub shell has to be replaced, because the bearings are molded into the plastic. If it's only making noise when the drain pump comes on during the drain cycle, your drain pump may be obstructed in some way, or the pump itself could be bad. Getting inside the machine to check either component is not easy, because the door has to be removed, along with the front panel, rubber door seal, and top of the machine. Sorry, this may not be an easy fix for you. But, I hope I can lead you in the right direction. Let me know if you need further guidance.
