Water not draining

I have a Haier top load compact washer, I set it for a wash and when I came back from the grocery store it was off with half level water, I thought it tripped the circuit so I turned it off, and reset the water level, after it finished the wash cycle I noticed that it was making a wierd noise and not draining out any water is there a way to fix this myself could it be a clog?

Re: Water not draining

I have the same problem....
I've pulled the pump area apart more times than I care to mention...usually I find a quarter or a nickel....I pull it out and that helps...but still the same prob.
i noticed alot of "buildup on the pump propellor shaft...lint, etc...cleaned that to no avail...
replaced the pump....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt....
I pulled the panel apart (front contro panel) and see that the pump is geting 120V to it isnt a switch or relay..
i'm thinkning it may be the water level sensor having a ton of build up on it...maybe flagging the computer to stop pumping...

any other peole with possible solutions....?

Haier HLP23E - When I press start, the water flows in and out at the same time.

Hi Lina, accordin to the Haier website, E4 stands for "water inlet problem. Water can not inlet or cannot reach the selected level in a proper time.". Unless the ingoing water pressure is really low, I think you need to service the machine. Anyway, hope this helps!

My used Kenmore washer fills with water then the water level drops downto about the half way level in drum. I just bought it used and installed it yesterday. Could the water be siphoning out into drain...

It sounds as if it is siphoning out the drain pipe.You have to get the drain pipe up to the top of the washer and also be sure that the pipe is a little bigger than the drain hose or it will siphon. Hope this helps.

Hi, I bought a Haier 8.8-lb. 1.6 cu. ft. Capacity Portable Top-Load Clothes Washer from two week ago. When water goes into the machine, I found the water came out from drain tube at the same...

Have you got the drain pile positioned higher than the top of the machine. If the outlet of the pipe is lower than the water level, the water will just run out. If this is not the problem then don't even try adjust or open the unit. Take it back to the dealer or you will void your warranty and it is not worth it. Let the dealer worry about it.

I have a Samsung SW62ASP top load washing machine. I keep getting chunks of black flaky stuff turning up through my wash. I always empty the in bowl filter, is there another filter?

Hi there,

This is a common problem on washing machines, if you predominantly do cold washes.

Over a period of time, a washing machine will accumulate a buildup of Soap Scum (excess soap & softener residue) which can stick to the inside of the drum.

This black coloured soap scum occasionally breaks away from the drum, and attaches to the clothing fabric during the wash cycle.

You can rectify this, by doing the following:

Firstly, purchase a packet of CITRIC ACID from your local grocery store (usually found in the baking isle).

Do the following procedure before going to bed:

1) Do a HOT WASH without clothes (Hi water level, with HOT water) - allow machine to fill with hot water, then add the CITRIC ACID to the water. Allow the machine to complete a FULL wash cycle (i.e. allow machine to agitate for 30 mins or so, then drain).

2) Fill the machine again with the HOT water / CITRIC ACID solution, but this time allow it to sit in the bowl overnight (no cycle).

3) Next morning, set machine to spin & drain (i.e. to empty the solution)

4) Set machine to fill with FRESH HOT WATER ONLY (no citric acid), then set machine to spin & drain. This will flush all remaining residue left in the bowl.

Note: Soap scum residue is caused by using excess detergent/fabric softener. Hot Water flushing should be done every 6 months.

Contrary to what the detergent manufacturers state, you should follow Samsung's instructions by using HALF the recommended detergent.

Samsung machines prefer LOW SUDS, and you may find by reducing the amount of detergent used, you may even eliminate the buildup of soap scum.

When tub filling, it drains out at the same time.

The outlet of the drain hose must be higher than the water level inside the tub--normally the pump inside removes the water when needed. Get a plumber to install a proper height drain pipe for you.

How long is the fill and drain hose for Haier HLP21E washer?

No need to worry, you can get a new inlet hose & drain hose of any length at any major hardware store. I have the larger Haier outside my kitchen & got a 10' drain hose & inlet hoses & this same situation was instantly solved...

Draining extra water

Cut off the zip tie that holds the drain tube. Bring the drain tube as close to the ground as possible and siphon out the water - yes, that means sucking on that hose. Have a bowl handy to collect the water, or do it somewhere you don't mind getting wet. Just keep the end of the hose lower than the basin of water and you should have no problems.

No Drainage Stoppage?

The drain hose has to be higher than the full water tub level or it will keep draining out make sure your hose is high enough
