SOURCE: How to Clean Pump Strainer basket

Turn the swimming pool pump off and wait for the water to drain from the strainer basket. You want to make sure that the pump is completely off before you proceed. Remove the screws or any items securing the lid of the strainer basket. Open the lid and pull out the strainer basket. Vacuum the strainer basket or scoop out any debris. You may want to run clear water through the basket to ensure you removed all debris. Feel toward the impeller and remove any clogs or obstructions preventing the impeller from working properly. Check the o-ring under the cover of the pump strainer housing. You may need to use a silicon lubricant to ensure a water-tight seal. Put the strainer basket back into the pump strainer housing and pour some water into the basket. Replace the lid and secure it in place. Turn the swimming pool pump on and check for proper pressure. If your pressure doesn't register, you may need to troubleshoot to find the problem.

SOURCE: I've changed o-ring at pump

If you reach into the hole behind the basket in the pump. You should be able to use a screwdriver to feel around to see if something is clogging the impeller. If so you can work it loose by working it in a counter clockwise direction, than use long nose pliers to pull it out. If that is your problem
Also check all your hoses for leaks.

I have a leak from the bottom of the pump

Also, check for the actual mechanical shaft seal, they leak, and appears as if it's coming off of the wet end. Making it look like the drain plug could be leaking, or the area between the volute which is the pump housing, and the cover, this would normally be a failed gasket or O-ring, depending on the brand. Sometimes just tightening the cover to the pump housing correct this issue.

Need drain plug for 2 hp Utilitech pump

If it is just the plug to close a hole, a standard pipe plug from a hardware store will fit. Measure the hole and ask the store clerk to help. They are very inexpensive, so if you get sizes close to your measurement you should be able to get the right one. Be sure not to cross thread (put in at a bad angle and use pipe sealing tape).

Oil Drain Plug location

The sump drain plug will be at the lowest possible point on the sump. The one in front of the water pump is probably the water drain plug.

How do you bleed the lines to the pump?

I usually run a water hose down the skimmer basket drain for a while until water is returning to the pool through the pump. I hope this helps.

Whirlpool duet washer not draining or spinning

sounds like the drain is blocked. remove the lower front panel from the machine and there you will see next to the pump a drain plug,, unscrew the drain plug counter-clockwise and drain and remove the plug and screen. clean out any socks or whatever else found its way down there. put plug back in and start wash cycle,, all should be good.
if it is still not draining then you could have a bad pump ,, use a volt meter to test for voltage at the pump when it is in drain cycle,, if there is voltage then the pump is bad,, but if there is no voltage then the problem could be at the main control board.

I have a GE front loading washing machine. it will not drain model is wsxh208

Hello there:
This is due to the drain pump being clogged
The drain plug is on the front of this washer - you can see it without removing anything - there is a small 5"x3" panel on the front bottom that you pull out and then the plug twists free - have a large pan ready and unsrew slowly - water will come gushing out - have towels at the ready!

There are 2 screws on the bottom of the larger bottom front panel - remove these and you can see inside

you will see the drain plug housing is connected to the water pump and there are two hoses connected to the housing and the pump one coming from the washer to the drain plug and one going from the pump to your drain.

Remove the hoses carefully - I used plyers to pinch the clamps together.

the hardest part of this is removing the drain plug housing and pump - because it seems like you should be able to just remove the pump - but you can not!!
There are two screws holding in the housing and pump - remove them and the whole thing pulls clear.

Once out you can make sure there is not more coins or **** in the thing. Three screws hold the housing to the pump - mark these with a sharpie before you remove them - because once it is off there are multiple ways to re attach it.

Once free of the drain plug housing spin the pump a few times and put it all back together -
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Mike
