You may have a burned pump belt... did you smell something on the last load?
If the belts are ok, you may be suffering from "sucked sock syndrome".. when a sock or other small item gets flung over the top of the perforated inner tub and into the outer tub, allow the item to possibly block off the tub drain. Symptom: after cycle, the tub is full or partially full of water, and may not happen on every load.
Small items that get lodged in the outer tub, can actually get pulled down in the drain hose or even into the pump. When you pull the cover off to access the drive belts, check the pump and drain hose from the tub for blockage.
If it's not in these areas, it may be floating around in the outer drum. With the top of the machine and the top of the tub off, you can fish in between the two tubs with a straightened coat hanger wire that has a a small hook bent in the end... with a little luck you should be able to pull out any rogue socks ...
good luck on this ...
let me know how you do.

This washer uses a electric pump. Strings and coins can easily stop the small inpeller. The pump comes apart for cleang. You must remove the front panel by inserting a putty knife in the tp and using downward force the front will come off.
Pull the panel towards you and simplely lift it off the bottom mount. You can now inspect that pump. Lower the drain ose into a bucket to allow as much gravity flowing water to get out before you remove the pump housing. Just unlock the tab and twist apart the pump to get the strings and such out. Have rags ready. LOL

My dishwsaher wont drain water


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

My washer has gone through the cycle and the door will not unlock. Please help.


Hello,
TYpically the door wont unlock due to not all the water draining from the tub so the water level switch isn't satisfied the water has drained and wont allow the door to unlock.

The most likely problem is that the drain pump screen is clogged so its not draining and if it isn't draining it wont spin.
To check the pump remove the lower panel and the lower right side will be the pump, unscrew the big white cap a little and use towel(s) to catch the water that comes out ,when all water out remove completly and check for blockage.

My wf t1001tp wont drain...can anyone help?


sounds like a blocked drain hose or a faulty pump motor..If the machine can be drained by putting the drain hose lower than the water level then the hose is not blocked and it may be the pump...Make sure the hose leaves the machine from under the tub and not high on rear of washer. Obviously water won't flow uphill..If the pump has failed a new pump motor is much cheaper than buying a whole new pump....Nomess

It is most likely that there maybe something blocking the drain. Check the pump and make sure there is nothing inside it preventing the water from draining properly

It wont drain the water away after a wash we


sounds like your pump may be gone, or could be pipe blocked. to check pipe fill machine take outlet pipe at rear of machine and lay this into a bowl. If water flows ok then all pipes are clear. As water is coming through just put machine onto spin cycle and raise hose to see if water will then pump out.
