Question about Fisher and Paykel Washing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
The drain water pump is the main part in your washing machine that pumps out the water. If this is defective or has failed in any way, this will be the reason why your washer will not drain the water. Before you order a new drain pump, make sure tocheck the pump to be sure a small object like clothing or similar has not lodged itself insideof it causing the NO DRAIN issue. If the drain pump is not clogged, you can test it with a multimeter and remove and replace if needed. Go to Google or YouTube and search for "Replace Washing Machine Drain Pump" then type your brand and model number of washer to show you details on replacement.

SOURCE: RE: won't drain
I had the same symptoms (washes normally, but won't drain/spin) It would only make a faint hum. I found it fairly easy to lift and tilt back the upper section id by removing the front two screws under the lid. The aggitator came out easily by removing the softener cup and unscrewing the large plastic wingnut inside. The upper plastic shroud came off by carefully removing the eight or so plastic tabs. Once the shroud was off, I could lift out the main wash tub. With the wash tub out, I was able to remove all remaining water from the holding tub with a cup and sponge out all water down into the depression where the pump assembly is located. One screw removed the cover to the pump assembly. Once apart, I found a thin piece of plastic was jamming the pump impeller from spinning. I blew through the drain hose from the back to ensure the drain system was clean. Reassembled in reverse in less than 10 minutes. It worked. Thanks Fixya!!!

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (4 to 6 inches maximum). Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Rate me pl.....if helped. Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.

look at my post "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". It could be something stuck in very lowest part fo drainage area. you have to remove the motor on bottom of washer to see into this area and remove blockage.

We had the same problem with our washing machine being full of water and beeping during the rinse cycle. The problem is that the filter, which is located under the washing machine, is plugged with something. Ours was plugged with a cotton swab. You have to tip the washing machine up and remove the filter and unplug it. The filter is in the center of the bottom of the machine. It twists off. I had to get the cotton swab out of inside the machine through this opening.
This machine plugs up a lot - I've never experience this with any other washing machine. Good Luck!

Unplug the machine have someone tilt the machine back and look under the machine for a little fan on a motor give it a turn to see if it spins it might just be sticky or it may need replacing.
