Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. Check the pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Make sure nothing is clogging the pump, like the occasional stray piece of clothing, and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken or missing blades and that the impeller will spin freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you can't get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged drain line, pump, or jammed impeller. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

SOURCE: washing machine clogged with dirt

You probably have sediment clogged in the inlet hoses and/or screens in the water inlet valve of the washer. First, turn off your water taps in the back of the washer. Disconnect the hoses one at a time and insert them in the wash tub. Turn the water taps back on to see if you are getting water through the lines. If not, you will need to remove the hoses and flush them out. If the hoses appear fine, inspect the sediment screens on your water inlet valve (this is where the hoses connect to). You can use cotton swabs to remove most sediment. If you cannot get the screens to clear and/or if sediment has gotten inside the water inlet valve, you will probably have to replace it. Try flushing the lines and cleaning the sediment screens, first, though. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: water in washing machine from emptying sink.

A washing machine filling with water overnight or when not in use has two possible causes. Either the water is running into the washing machine from the sink ( If the drain hose is connected directly to the u-bend under the sink ) or one of the water valves isn't shutting off properly and water is dripping slowly but surely into the washing machine. The latter problem can take several hours before the water level rises high enough inside the washing machine to be visible.
It's easy to track down the cause of water entering the washing machine when not in use. If turning off the hot and cold water taps stops it, then it's one of the water valves not shutting off properly, and needs replacing. It's just a process of elimination to find out which one it is. If not, the water is likely to be coming from the sink (use above link). Sometimes by removing the soap dispenser drawer and carefully observing inside the soap dispenser you can clearly see water dripping in at regular intervals.
Blocked water valve filters: I've come across cases where a filter in the water valve has become caked in a brown sludgy mud-like substance due to disturbances in the plumbing. This could be because of work carried out on internal plumbing or even after workmen have turned the water off in the street to work on the water mains. After the water is turned back on, muddy or gritty water can enter the household pipework and when you use the washing machine it can draw this contaminated water into it.
In this scenario very fine grit or muck can get past the filter and stop it shutting off properly, or the filter is so blocked that water pressure to the valve is reduced enough to prevent the valve shutting off properly. Remove the water valve filter with some pliers and thoroughly clean it out. If the fault persists, replace the valve.
Important things to watch out for are -

  1. Washing machine water valves need a certain amount of water pressure to actually ensure the water is shut off properly. Therefore, if your water pressure is very low, it can seep in past the closed valve. This problem is less likely to suddenly appear unless your water pressure has suddenly dropped. It's more likely to be a problem with a new installation. ( Related: Low water pressure and washing machines )
  2. A faulty tap can mean that although you turn it off, the water supply isn't actually cut, so be careful of assuming if the fault still occurs, that you have definitely discounted the water valves. If unsure, you would have to disconnect the hot and cold fill hoses to ensure the water supply is properly cut when the taps are turned off. This problem is a lot more common with water taps that turn off with a red or blue plastic lever.
  3. If the washing machine has just been filling, you may get some dripping of water into the soap dispenser for a few minutes after. Don't mistake this for a valve not shutting off properly.
  4. If the water ever gets turned off while work is carried out on the water mains in the street or for major plumbing in your home, run lots of water in the house through taps at the sinks until it runs clear after the water is turned back on.
Faulty water valves should be replaced or there is risk of flooding.

SOURCE: my hec washing machine is not spinning and the water wont empty

Try turning the spin basket, something may have jammed itself inside the tub. You can remove the front kick panel and remove the tub to pump hose to clean it out.
If ok, you might have other problems like a broken belt in the back.

How do I fix washing machine to finish emptying during rinse and spin cycle?


Long shot, but does it fill the same as when new? I would check the atmospheric switch which is a hollow tube that runs down the inside of the drum(not in the wash cage) when the water fills, It pushes air up to stop the fill. It may have gotten clogged. Or partially clogged.

My LG washing machine model-fuzzy logic WF-s6607tc, is not spinning


The filter for your empty pump is probably clogged. The machine can't drain the water in the alloted time because it is draining to slowly through the clogged filter. The machine won't start the spin cycle if all the water hasn't been evacuated. You will need to find and clean out your empty pump filter (Probably behind a little door at the bottom of the machine.

My washing machine wont rince clothes it just humms.


Your machine might have a blocked water level sensor or sensor tube.
Many machines have independant sensors for when the water level is full and when empty.
After the wash cycle, if the machine just continues to try to pump water out (even when empty), then it's most likely a sensor problem.
Sometimes, the sensor also has a breather tube, and if this clogs with fluff / debris, similar symptoms esult.

The machine washes and spins but stops whenever it should be emptying the water- so now it is full of water and I need to empty it and fix it.


Check water level switch. may be the small tube that carries water to the switch assembley. Either clogged or air trapped. Pull it re fix it. it should become ok.

Before that fill the m/c with water manually. Switch off power supply to the washer and attempt. ( Safety precaution)

My LG Washer 0642h doesn't always dispense the bleach. I notice that the dispenser fills up with water and doesn't empty. I have to empty it in the next wash. The dispenser doesn't appear to be clogged.


If the dispenser comes with a siphon tube, it is always this tube that is clogged. When the dispenser receives water from the machine, it fills up, the water/softener mix starts to go through the tube, at first by just draining because it has sufficient head, and then as the dispenser gets lower, siphon action in the tube takes place. . This tube must be clear for this dispenser to work.
