Water wont drain, think filter is clogged.

Hi tammylynn131,

Before the Spin Cycle should start, all water must be drained out of the machine. If it does not start, it could likely mean the Drain pump may be clogged. Please follow my below tip on the fix:


If this does not help, the drain pump may be faulty.

Kind Regards

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.

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 back.
