SOURCE: Washing Machine does not drain all the water

Hello nsukiwa.
Welcome,

What is the model number?????????????????????
As I am working blindly for you!
Here are some ideas, until I have the model number.

You said, your washer is a Hotpoint type. When emptying the water it never finishes all the water. You have to throw the drain pipe on the floor to drain it dry.

I'm searching for answers to your problem with these questions!!
1. How long is the drain pipe and does it have to pump up higher than the machine to reach the drain?
As if it is in the basement and the drain pipe above it?
In this case you would need an external pump with some machines!

2. Is the water visible in the bottom of the machine when the load is done?
Or do you just detect some water left in the hose?
There usually is some water left in the hose, but it is not supposed to be visable in the machines tub.

3. I have a Speed Queen washer because this machine can pump the water up above the washer for 7 feet straight up to the drain above!
Most machines are not capable to do this!

I am awaiting your answersHuuum

SOURCE: I had a cockroach scare and closed off the opening

No it would not cause the water to flood from the bottom. As a pest control professional i suggest u use a dust pesticide (boric dust or D.E). It last longer and works great for roaches. One of the biggest reasons you would see a roach come out of the pipe opening is because it is a moisture source, and all insects need moisture(water), it is also a nice dark area possibly cool, for them to be content in. Now what you do is using a "bulb duster" u lightly apply dust down into that spout you have your machine house into, be sure not to use to much. then put a couple glue traps behind youre machines to help you monitor insect activity.
knowing what kind of roach you are dealing with helps greatly as well.

While using washing machine water leaks out


sounds like the lower pipe or pump pipe is leaking or come away. you need to pull the washer out and place it on its side (left as you look at front) and check the pipes on the bottom, they have pincer clamps on the pipes, if the pipes are cracked or damaged replace them but usually its just they have come loose from drum movement. and just need fitting back on. also the drain pipe needs to be at least 3 inches from the top level with the water in pipes height of the washer so the water does not just come out.

Hotpoint WMA76 - been on a normal wash cycle but wont spin to drain water - cycle finished, drum full of water and cant empty. How do we empty it to open machine?


Remove drain outlet hose from point where it discharges into waste pipe, and lay the hose down into a bucket or bowl, this should let the water syphon out, enabling you to open the door.

Water not spinning out. clothes still wet when finished spinning.


check that you have water going down the machine drain pipe when the machine would normally be draining, if not could be a faulty water pump or a water pump blockage the machine is spinning whilst still full of water I am suprised you can open the door after the wash has completed

WHAT DOES HF OR FH MEAN ON A DUET WASHER MODEL GHW9150PW0


this error indicates water is not being detected coming into the machine. many things can cause this issue but start here

be sure that water valves are turned on. besure the filters inside the machine water valve(where hose hook to machine) are not clogged. also make sure drain hose is not installed into a drain pipe tightly. it should just rest inside a pipe or on the edge of a utility sink. when installed tightly into a pipe it creates a suction and syphons the water out of you machine and then your machine will never reach a "full" water level

Not working 100%


One the water in the bottom of the machine is more than likely becuase it is not draining properly reason?
Thenpump or drain pipe could be blocked or the filter or outlet at the bottom of the unit is clogged with food,Two are you useing dishwasher powder or blocks and not dishwashing liquide,three chech the wash arem holes are not clogged with food all holes must be open if two or so clogged it will spin the arm but will not wash properly and naturally will not rinse properly they must aslo be clean.Last make sure the machine is heating the water and not trying wash cold do this by stopping the machine mid cycle and open the door is there steam if so cool leave it to finnish the wash so clean filter ,wash arms,drain pipe blow into it and see if ant food particals appear in the machine,
Hope this helps

Water runs into tub but does not fill?


be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.

Unit will not turn on at all. Power source definately works. Unsure if unit stopped during dry cycle or finished and never came back on, but clothes were dry, indicating it was finished with the wash...


To open the door. First kill the power supply. There is a vaccum switch as part of the door lock which has a small diameter pipe connecting from the lock to the a vaccum container mounted on or near the pump remove this pipe to allow air in to the switch. Whilst you are in the process clear the vaccum container, pump and all pipes leading to and from pump of debris (usually lime scale related). Then reconnect everything. Put a cup full of soda crystals in drum and wash on hottest temperature.

Your door will not open if there is water still in the machine. Try "spin only". If this fails, get a bucket, remove your outlet tube from the wall drain, put into bucket. Wall plug off first. After all the water is drained try the door, do not force it.

Then check your outlet filter; the water does not go thru for there may be a block in your filter, or tube from the tub to drain area. Or finally in your pump. Dont forget to refix drain pipe in wall in exact position.

And rate me pl.
