Is it a washing machine or a dryer?

Dryers are usually not heavy from water.
If it is a condenser type of dryer the water collector can be removed.

If the washing machine has completely finished its last wash, there should not be much water left.
Washing machines are usually heavy because they have a concrete stabilizer block mounted on top of the drum cage.

How to take apart to clean out lint


For front loaders in general. Take the power plug off the wall. Be prepared for a lot of water before attempting the following. It doesn't spin because the unit is not draining water. It will not spin with water in it - must drain first. Check drain hose for kink,check exit pipe for blockage. Remove the front access panel, bottom front, screws beneath; if you find a pipe there with a cap -this is for draining water. Could be your "coin trap assembly" is blocked, therefore not allowing all the water to pump out. Remove the clamp (or unscrew) that connects the trap assembly to the pump and clean it out.
If helped pl say so.

The washer ran fine then stopped with water not draining. When I push the on button I get a buzz or humming noise .nothing moves. There is no error code.


Sounds as if you have something doen in the pump preventing it from draining and in doing so shutting the machine off as a safety action. I think you can actually access the pump from the rear of the machine. just unplug the machine, prepare to get wet, take the back of the machine off, take the lines off the pump and check for the blockage.

Can I get to the drain pump or does the washer need to be torn apart? I cleaned out the drain plug- full of sand, filter clean, but I can't see the actual drain pump to see if something might be


Hi.

You can get to the drain filter without need for disassembling.The filter access is located behind the protective trim at the lower front side of the machine. Remove the trim and rotate the filter cap anticlockwise. Be prepared to collect the water that will flow through the filter. After cleaning the filter perform operations in reverse order to reassemble. Disconnect power before starting.
The pump is located at the bottom of the machine, behind the filter. Accessing the pump requires disassembling.

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

My front load Kenmore washer has a f03 code on the screen. It is not draining the water and it is not doing a max spin. What do you think I need to do?


F03 error code means that there is either fill problem, a drain problem or a water level pressure switch failure .

First ensure the machine is filling.
When the drain system is causing the F03 error do the following.

Ensure that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged.

If the drain hose is OK check the drain pump.

Start unplugging washer from main and remove the service panel at the bottom.

Follow the instructions on manual to remove panel.

Access the water pump and remove the hoses, clear any blockage in there.

Use a container to collect the water, be prepared. If machine has lot of water inside, remove some water with a sponge before undoing the pump.

My washing machine stops advancing in the middle of the agitation cycle and is full of water. I've tried to advance it myself by moving the knob manually to the rinse and spin cycle but this does nothing....


It sounds like your pump is pluged up or stop working. You will need to take out as much water as you can. Unplug the machine. From the back side you will see a pump with two hoses. You will need to remove one of the hoses and drain the rest of the water. Then check pump to see if there is any blockage. You might need to remove pump and take apart. It could be build up, nail or small screw. Only simple tools with screw drivers should be needed. Rinse and spin cycle will not work with water in the machine.

Water not draining out


Plug off the mains. First drain out all your water by lowering the exit hose into a bucket or drain. You have to look for screws below the front kick-panel, the panel comes down & out. The pump is on the right side. Be prepared for dirty water. Inside the big flexible tube (coming from the tub bottom) is the filter, be prepared to find all sorts of junk here, clean out. Examine your pump also, clean out the impeller. Carefully refit all. Your machine would be fine. Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

Draining water from a dishwasher in preparation for a house removal


Best thing is to disconnect all the hoses and ensure that the waste hose is kept high. Put the machine on a couple of chairs and let the machine empty into a bucket thru the hose. Quite a lot of water inside. Tie up the hoses and lead at the top back of the machine.
Happy moving.

Daewoo dwf-6094r wont spin on spin cycle


You need to clean out your outlet filter;(which is accessible thru the front bottom right side of machine, small push door, or plastic screw) this needs to be done periodically - according to your usage. If this does not solve your problem check out your outlet pump. Plug off the wall first before you do the jobs. The machine will not drain water if the outlet is clogged. For the pump, tubes, etc you hav to open up behind the machine. Be prepared for water to come flowing out.......
And rate me pl, if the solution has worked......
