I clogged my washer drain...

I think that I clogged my drain in my washer. I washed a rug yesterday that fell apart and now my washer won't drain. Is cleaning this out difficult? Where do I even start?

Follow the discharge hose into the washer body --- the trap will be at the housing the hose connects to --- not a big job. be sure to unplug the machine and hand bail the standing water out of the basket. keep a sponge and rags with a pail for the water in the trap and hose. no special tools, but it will be metric

I washed a rug and the back fell apart clogging the washer somehow so the water wont drain what do i do?


You may need to do more than just a filter cleaning. Your sump and hoses are all probably clogged too. Looks like you will have to take the washer apart and give it a good flush out.

Washer will not drain.


Hi,

Get the washer laying on it's side and using the access hole on the bottom carefully remove the screw clamp holding the large hole of the rubber housing to the tub drain (it will be obvious all other clips are green compression clips).Carefully work the strainer out of this flexible rubber drain housing through the large hole.Clean it out and replace you will be good to go. Also remove all the hoses and check for a buildup of gunk. Hope this will fix your problem.


Thank you!!

My washer will not drain . I washed bathroom rugs that fell apart leaving excess fibers that I beleive plugged up the holes that allows drainage. A few gallons of water is still sitting in my washer and...


If your washer does not drain you need to check this parts.
  1. Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  2. Test the timer control
  3. Test the lid switch(some models)
  4. Inspect the water pump
  5. Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
  6. Inspect the motor coupler
If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

How do i take the washer apart


That is a good possibility. I once worked on this lady's washer and turned out she had a sock that got stuck in the pump. Had to take the pump apart to get it out. If you can remove the hose from the drain and run the machine without causing a big mess that will tell you whether the clog is in the machine or the drain. Then you can go from there.

Clogged pump on Affinity Washer


Exactly the same problem. Washed a small area rug that appeared to have pretty much disintegrated. Machine would not drain. Got the same e 20 code. Checked the drain hose, and it was fine. Reamed the house drain just to be sure. Drum appears to have drained, but now the motor runs, and no water enters the machine. Both water hoses are flowing. No further error codes. Nada.

GE Washer won't drain or spin


this is something that you can fix even if your not a technical person . first you have to open the washing machine front panel or back panel , second , follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its connected to a little motor, disconnect the DRAIN HOSE , take the LITTLE MOTOR out and clean it out , it could be clogged.
it happen once and find out the person put the BATH RUG SET
to wash , the rug was so old that pieces of a rubber underneath the rugs clogged the drain , so there was no rinse and no spin.
try it , I hope it helps.
