Will not pump water out after wash cycle. I have tried to changing the cycle knob to a different cycle and different speeds and it won't advance past the position where the water should pump out.

    lid switch is working. i inserted a screwdriver into the switch to be sure

  • djgerold Sep 07, 2009

    I tried again the suggestion of making sure the lid switch was engaging. Doing so the machine pumped the water out. I let the machine fill with rinse water. The rinse cycle ran and then again will not pump the water out. Using a screw driver to engage the lid switch had no affect. Won't pump again.

It may be a problem with the lid switch if possible take something to hold in on the switch and see if it works

    if your pump isn't working it wont pump water make sure the drain hose to the pump isn't clogged and if not take out thepump and check it

  • roberta3fan Sep 07, 2009

    make sure you getting power to the pump also, if not thats why it wont pump out.

  • roberta3fan Sep 07, 2009

    so it did work once? your probably gonna have to replace the lid switch

  • roberta3fan Sep 07, 2009

    What you can do is jump the switch out and see if it works. Raise the top of washer and unplug the switch wrap electrical tape around the two wires making sure they are together and try it again.

WFS1073DD front load WASHING MACHINE Everything works but will not spin fast enough to spin the water out. It spins very slow


Early automatic washers used a motor with multiple windings to provide the various speeds required by different parts of each wash programme. Modern washers use an entirely different sort of motor and the speeds are selected and controlled electronically with feedback to ensure the speed is correct.

I suspect the problem is the electronics - the part of the programmer and controller that regulates the motor speed but you should check the motor and motor brushes, the drive belt and all electrical connections as a matter of best practice before you spend money...

Will not rinse or spin


I have had similar situation with my top load washer over the years. It has been the timer 3 times and the water pump 1 time.
How I came up with it being the timer. The knob which you set it on the type wash you want. Put it on a different cycle and see if it completes the wash cycle. example if my washer is not working when I put it on heavy wash cycle I might put it on the casual wash cycle. If you change the wash cycle and it goes through the complete cycle it is probably the timer which is part of the knob you change for different wash cycles with.
If it stops when it is time to empty the tub on all cycles it may be the water pump which empties the tub. The one time I had a problem with the water pump it was a small piece of coal had the pump locked up. I never figured how it got out of the tub and to the pump but I put it back together and it worked fine.
It should not go into the spin cycle if the tub is full of water.
Two of the timers I bought cost 40 - 60 dollars. One was 140 dollars I bought a new washer that time because the washer only cost 220 dollars.

GE WHDRR418 top load washer won't spin at high speed; the washer does the complete cycle, and agitates in both directions and does physically spin, but it will not go into the 'high speed' spin that...


we can eliminate the motor and the switch since that part is working. sound like your timer might be faulty, timer make everything work in persistence cycles, if its goes bad sometime it tend to jump/skip cycles.

For LG WM2233HW, Error Code OE. Already check drain hose and filter, all clean. Try different cycles, TUB CLEAN, SPEED WASH. Same error code. No drain.


Replace the water pump. Because the water can not pump out, the machine idles for a while then stops with the error code OE. The technician said, the drain hose should be hang high before curse down to the drainage so air can not go to the hose.

Will not wash!!


Dangercart82,

I would recommend starting off by trying a different cycle. Change the dial to the spin cylce, or a different type (perm press, normal, knits) and see if it has the same problem.
