Washer won't spin

The washer stopped draining and the final spin last night. I took it apart the drain hose and found a sock that was clogging it. Put everything back together and now the tub will not spin at all but it drains water. Last night it would at least wash the clothes it would just not go into the final spin, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: washer won't spin

Maybe when you were behind the machine, you did not refit the outlet pipe at the correct height; this is a height approx. 3 feet from the ground or more. Your pump pumps the water OVER this height.

You said it does not spin; you shd check out your outlet filter and clean it. If this is clogged the machine will not spin. All the best!

Kitchenaid KAWS700G will fill and wash but won't drain and spin

My washer also did not drain. I disconnected the power supply and water hoses and the drain hose and lay the machine on its side.. The motor is at the bottom. Once I disconnected the hose and put my finger to look inside. There is a rubber stopper and once I moved that aside and looked inside I found my baby sock stuck in the the pump. Once I gently pulled the sock out It came out easily. Lucky me the motor is in working condition.
My washing machine was manufactured I believe in 1997.

This is the first time ever took look under any washing machine.
Best of luck!

Washer won't go into spin cycle, stops after final rinse. When I try drain &rinse it still will not spin.

If the unit does not spin correctly, this is usually an indication that the unit can also not drain. The unit will not spin if it senses a blockage or issue with the drain lines and/or pump. Try to check the drain lines in the back of the unit for any issue, and then see if you have an access panel to get to the coin trap or drain pump itself. Often socks and debris will clog up in this area and cause your problems.

Washer agitates but will not spin drain spin or fill

Well I have a Roper Top Load Washer, bought it in 1998 ,no problems til back 6 years ago we had someone come fix it. My problem was the same wouldn't drain or spin. The problem was it was clogged, in the front when you lift off the washer casing theres a white piece connected to to tubes that drain. well there was my daughters pair of underwear in there and a couple small socks. He took them out put it back together and worked ever since. Until earlier tonight we had same problem so we took it apart ourselves and found my boyfriends sock in there took it out and put it back together and works great again. So far so good. Hope this helps Good luck. Tammy

My duet whirlpool stops at the rinse or spin cyle and gives error code F02. I cleaned out the drain pump strainer twice and got much out of it. It still errors. I took th epum completely apart last...

"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

E13 error code with my Bosch 500 plus series washer (front loader)

I had an E-13 error code on my Bosch 500 series washer.  The drain pump  impeller was plugged.  Access the drain impeller at the bottom front right corner.  Just put a pen in the hole and turn the cover.  Then you need to manually drain the washer.  I used a shop vac by just turning the cap until it started to leak and vacuum the water as it comes out, this takes quite a while.  When you get it drained you can take the cap completely off.  When I did I found a wipe in the impeller.  I took it out and put it back together and the washer worked just as before.  Good Luck!!

Machine will not drain and spin

you need a new one of these. i took mine COMPLETELY apart and found the impeller jammed. the impeller is a magnet in a sealed plastic carrier with an electro magnet around it. the electro magnet energizes , the two opposing fields spin the inner magnet ( just like a fish tank filter good idea actually!) the inner magnet on mine had a slight crack from factory causing vibration and allowing debris past the seal then jamming the impeller. to check yours drain it with the small drain tube, then get a towel or two and place around the unit at the floor.pull the large black drain cover off and after the gushing tidal wave look inside. you will see the white impeller. try turning it with w screw driver , pen or whatever. you may be able to remove and then clean / reassemble and be good as new. i only needed two tools to tear the machine apart. a Phillips screwdriver and pliers to get the clamps on the pump (2) and the clamp back on the door to drum gasket.

Kenmore Front loader clogged up

open the back panel to access the hoses. look for the largest-diameter round hose and disconnect it. this should be the drain hose. it also should lead to a vertical-rising pipe or hose that then dumps downward (U-tube at top) into your house piping outside the washer. My hunch is the clog is somewhere before the area where you disconnected and may need to remove all hoses from the pump and also clean pump's impeller.
