    washer wont drain

  • ghood100403 Jun 18, 2008

    My washer will not drain.

    When the machine reaches the drain cycle the control knob goes through the cycle but the pump doesn't seem to be kicking on. It used to be sporadic, and if you open and closed the lid it would kick into the drain cycle, but now I get nothing. It sounds like the pump is trying to kick in because you can hear other noises besides the ticking of the timer/control knob.

Washer is full of water. drain is blocked with hair or lint i believe. washed some nasty stuff. wont drain. how do i clear the blockage? i think may be blocked inside washer. drain hose is very narrow...


If you can get a garden type water hose near there, try to carefully use it to blow the water backwards through the drain hose. Put the hose up to the drain hose end and wrap a rag tightly around it and turn the water slowley. This may free up any debris from the hose and pump. If anything comes out,clean it out of the tub before you turn it back on.

My smart drive model LW015-K top load washer won't drain the water, I think the draining mechanism is blocked but Im not sure. I forwarded to spin cycle to force drain but it just makes a buzzing sound...


sounds like blocked or the pump is shorting out, do not keep using it otherwise the pump can short your board out, get a repairman unless your a handyman

The washing machine won't drain the water, the washing itself looks covered in fluff so now thinking system is blocked with fluff oh crikey what can I do please oh please Hotpoint aquarius WM62


drain screen or hose is most likely clogged. That is usually the case when they don't drain. Newer machines are really tempermental this way.

have you checked the filter behind the flap on the front of the machine, this could be blocked. if the machine is full of water though you will have to manually drain it by putting the grey outlet hose into a bucket or a washing up bowl. you will also need one or two towels to place on the floor because there wil still be a bit of water left in the ipes even though the drum is empty.

hope this helps

Hotpoint WMA35 - water will not empty and will not spin


Hi Debbie

Yes your machine will not spin if the water cannot drain... I do not have the machine in front of me but I would presume to think that you have a blockage in the water pump (or drain pump)

There is a normally a small pvc or plastic filter just before the pump and this would stop most big things entering the pump.. if not there could be a coin or button stuck in your pumps impeller.

Unfortunately if you are not technically inclined you will find it hard to access and open the pump otherwise just open the back plate on the machine (after removing the power socket from the wall) the pump is located at the bottom left and fairly easy to remove and open the plastic casing.

If this does not solve your problem please give more info........

Kenmore washer


Lori, first check the lid switch, if it's broken, it won't spin or drain. Put it into spin and hold the switch down, see if it drains. Check that first...Catriver..post back.
