You say that it doesn't drain, but does it spin? If the dryer will spin, but will not drain, then you most likely have an obstruction in the main drain line. Sometimes clothing like a sock can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. It can then get into the drain hose that attaches to the pump or even into the pump itself. You will have to remove the large diameter black hose that attaches to the pump and check. If something is clogging it, then use needlenose pliers to get the obstruction out if there is any.

If the washer won't spin or drain, but the motor is running, then the washer probably has a frozen pump pulley and the pump would have to be replaced. To check a pump, remove it from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. It should turn freely. If not, replace the pump.

Hope this helped you and good luck finding a resolution to your problem.

Why is my GE TPS24 drain freezing


It is most likely that the defrost drain is blocked in the freezer causing the water to drain through the air vents. You will most likely have to remove the rear panel in the freezer and pour hot water in the drain trough until the drain clears up and the water drains down the drain tube. Small particles of food can build up in the drain. Ice forms around the particles and blocks the drain. Sometimes the insulation gets saturated with water and the drain will continue to freeze up in about a month or so. If this is the case there isn't much that can be done except replace the refroigerator

How to flush out the water heater


Connect one end of garden hose to spout located near bottom of water heater. Put other end near drain or run to outside whichever suits your particular situation better. Shut off water valve at top of heater and open spout to drain. You might not have to drain the whole thing if you do this regularly. If it's never been done before you probably should. When water stops draining out shut off spout and open valve at top of tank to fill it back up. Disconnect garden hose. Water will be cold for about an hour before it has a chance to heat back up. Should be done about once a year or so depending on your water unless you have a self cleaning water heater.

Zanussi fle 1416w wont fully drain the water out and final spin leaves clothes quite wet. When i turn the drum manually i can hear the water below the drum sloshing about. What's wrong with it?


Hi.

Check for drain blockage, check position of the drain hose and check the pressure switch.


1) Access the drain filter and look for drain blockage. With Zanussi front loaders this located in front at the bottom right hand corner, there is an access door in there.Open the door, unscrew the cap and use a container to collect the water. Disconnect power before starting maintenance.

2) Check the position of the drain hose. Make sure that the height of the hose elbow is as specified in the manual or you get siphoning (water getting back from drain hose inside the tub) and drain does not end.

3)The machine has a pressure switch. It is a sensor connected to a long thin rubber hose. The pressure switch is located in control assembly. Clean pressure hose and switch. One way to test the pressure switch is by blowing into the switch, but manufacturers say this must not be done as you can damage a good switch.
The pressure switch is difficult to test in full. Testing is done either reading voltages while machine is cycling or reading Ohms at the switch with tub empty and full. For safety reasons I suggest users to avoid performing tests or maintenance that must be done with power on.

Here a page about drain/spin problem.

Start checking drain hose and drain filter.

Regards.

Won't drain


Hi,
Please follow the steps provided bellow :
Fill washer with water and wait for the timer to get to the drain mode.
Unplug the washer from the electric outlet.
Open the case, and disconnect the water hose from the outlet of the water pump.
If you get water pouring out from the pump, then plug that up and check the hose to the sewer. If that is clogged, then you have found the problem.
Some washers have a self cleaning filter in that hose somewhere. Check that to be sure it is working properly.
Reassemble hose from step 3.
Plug washer back in. If it pumps out now, then you are done. If it doesn't, then the water pump is probably defective, so replace it.
Reassemble washing machine case...you're done...

Water keeps coming back into dishwasher after cycle is done


Hi, If the drain hose is attached under the sink, make sure that the drain hose is looped higher then the outlet it is attached to.
Most model will hold a small amount of water after draining to keep the seals moist.
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
