If this is a top load that should be simple. Just put the hose in the wash pan and turn on the vacuum. If it is one of those HE front load washers, there should be a drain outlet / drain filter somewhere on the chassis. You may have to take the panel off.

Won't finish the wash cycle

Initially we 1)used less detergent and make sure its marked 'he' . extra soap suds initiates error codes. 2) ran white vinegar with no detergent to clear suds 3) opened, checked and cleared trap.
Everything worked for a time but codes would return or like you would not finish wash cycle until water line in back of machine was made rigid so there was no chance of water or sud backup. So far so good. Good luck.

Haier washer gwt450aw will no drain the water from the rinse cycle or spin. What could this be?

Get a wet dry vac and remove the filter in the vac so you can suck all the water out of the tub of the washing machine then slide the washer out so you can remove the drain hose and vacuum it out.

My washing machine isnt taking the conditioner instead the compartment is filling with water.

Some techs will usually say to clear your hose out with a coat hanger, but with your model, hot water and a wet/dry shop vac will do the trick. Make sure the water is very hot, but not so hot it melts the plastic. Fill the cup with the water and when it has drained about halfway down apply the shop vac to the drain hole itself and your dried softener will come back up the tube into the vac, clearing your softener tube. This happens when you do a few cold or warm washes and the softener clings to the tube and dries there.

How do I drain the outer tub of my washing machine?

If you own a wet/dry shop vac this can take about 5 minutes. Pull the drain hose from the stand pipe at the wall and pull a vacuum using the shop vac. These front loaders usually only hold about 5 to 7 gallons when full.

If you do not own a shop vac, you will need to access the drain pump and either remove one of the drain lines, or remove the clean out trap cover on the drain pump (if equipped). You will need a lot of extra towels to catch all the water. This can be a messy method to use.

If you need further assistance, please post back with your brand name and model number. All front loaders are not designed the same and this makes it much easier to diagnose. I hope this helps you.

that isn't a good model number,open the door,look around the opening where you put the clothes in and next time send the model number off of the machine,if you can't get it to drain and water is in the machine get a shop vac,suck out the water from the tub,then go to the pump,loosen the center of the pump until water starts to come out vac it up until no more water comes out,remove the center catch and see if there's junk in there,if so this is your problem,stick the nozzle of the vac inside and clean out the inside,put it back together and see if it will drain
