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.

Washing machine flashing f21


the pump is blocked or the pump is bad.drain out all the water in the tub,best way is with a shop vac,vac out the water,remove the bottom panel,on some models the center of the pump twists out,loosen the center piece until water starts to leak out,vac up the water until it stops,remove the center piece and clean it out,stick your finger inside where the impellar is and make sure it's clear,also check the boot on the othr side of the pump and make sure nothing is in it,if your model doesn't have the pump where you remove the center piece disconnect the hose and clean out the pump and hose,add water and drain/spin,if it still doesn't drain change out the pump.

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.
