Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Not draining Has anyone the solution of how to solve the problem of what was first a crackling noise when draining. While now its stopped draining altogether and cycle just stops. There is ,also no normal drain pump sound,when machine attempts to empty. It then reverts to the 'Ready' light on front panel. The machine fills up and continues as normal until this happens. Could it be the drain pump needs replacing?

With front loading machines this is VERY common. My teenage Daughters wear underwear that are so tiny that they get past the drum lip and get wound up in the pump impeller. Same thing happens with stuff left in the pockets specifically coins.

At the bottom usually the front of the machine there is a bailing tube next to the pump. Take the plug out and put it in a shallow basin to drain the water out of the drum. Then remove the pump access cover, it usually twists out. Then remove what ever treasure is jamming up the pump. Put the cover back on, put the plug back in the drain tube and if you like add a quart of water into the front of the machine to prime the pump again. Then test the machine.

To keep this from happening they make laundry mesh bags - if you use them then nothing will clog the pumps ever again. I tell my Daughters to get underwear that actually covers their butts. For some reason my plea falls on deaf ears. Go figure.

SOURCE: Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

I have a samsung dishwasher that won't drain it makes a cracklings noise then the quick light starts flashing if I unhook the drain line and hold it lower in a bucket it will drain


If it is making crackling noises, it has water on electrics and is shorting out. Unplug it a call a technician before you have a fire.

Unhooking the drain line and lowering just allows water to flow past the pump.

Are you meaning it crackles when turning a tuning knob? If so, it means the pot is dirty and needs a shot of cleaner.

Ge Triton dishwasher will not drain and makes a funny noise.


Yes!! The crackling noise you hear is small pieces of food stuck spinning around the moter drain....All you have to do is find the drain hose (some are located under the sink of the kitchen) disconnect it from the draining source (not the back of the dishwasher) now run a long thin wire through the drain hose line poke around and pull in and out!! it may take a few tries but its better then a large Bill!! replace hose and hit drain button!!

Crackling noise


I think I have solved the problem. I dusted the tv completely. Then took the cable box and with a hair dryer in the cool setting blew out the interior circuits to try to remove all dust. Turned the set on no more crackling. Thanks for the posting.

Intermittent Crackling noise in the right headphone


Hello Rachel, I use my QC3 for 2.5 years Mon-Fri for 3 hours a day. I have the same problem when battery is weak and/or it is cold outside. The cracking nose stops for me if battery fully charged. This is known problem andBose put it in the manual.

LG WD-3243RHD Front Load Makes grinding, crackling noise


Fixed!

"LE" code Stator/Motor Error.

It was a simple fix and only cost $17.68 at PartStore.com no affiliation.

Here is the Service Manual

Bonus, it actually completes a wash cycle and does not stick at 6 minutes, drying forever.

Freakin service tech stated it was the Power Control Board, IDIOT!

While I was in there, I cleaned out the heater blower assembly and sensors. They were full of caked on lint and the sensors had debris all over them.

Also cleaned out all the lint and debris around the rubber seal, this will eliminate those annoying mildew oders.

Hope this helps someone, Happy New Year!
