There is a corrigated plastic hose (usually black or white) that comes out the back of the washer that should lead to some sort of drain (usually a pipe that comes out of the floor or in a recessed wall. If the washer is in a basement or place that you don't mind the water getting on the floor, remove the hose from the pipe and just set it on the floor or put the hose in a bucket. It will be SEVERAL bucket fulls. That will drain about 95% of the water. if this works, that means the pump is out. If you do that and no water or if the water just tickles out, you have a clog in the hose or the pump.

My washing machine drains water while in wash mode.


Hi, take a look at this video. You problem is probably a drain valve that is not closing completely. It could be due to debris getting stuck in it or the valve itself is failing. This video will help you figure out what it is and how to fix it.

Why is my washing machine not draining the water?


Hi Nick, it's probably because the drain is clogged or the drain pump is stuck or not operating. Basically there is a water draining system and something is stopping the water from going out. It helps a lot if you can post the make and model of the washing machine so a more detailed help can be provided.

No water drains out of drain plug on Lg washing machine


hi there, this could be one of two problems 1, you have a block in the waste pipe or pump? or 2, your drain pump has packed in and may need replacing?
however if memory serves me right there is an emergency drain tube on LG machines, it should be located behind the bottom pannel on the front of the machine and from there you should be able to release the water from the machine. hope this helps!

I have a hotpoint aqualtis washing machine and the door is locked how can i release it


Most washing machines wont let you open the door if there is still water in it. Try putting the drain hose on the ground to drain the water out and try the door again. If its a front loader, there may be a drain hose or outlet next to the filter cup. Usually down on the front of the machine.

While moving my samsung top washing machine, I think my drain hose pipe has moved down the water level. Now machine is not able to retain the water while washing/soaking. I need to pull the drain hose pipe...


Hi,

Although a few modern washing machines can operate with the drain pipe at any height, most machines will drain the water as soon as the drain pipe is placed below the machine water level.

The simplest solution for your problem would be to ask somebody with some handy man skills or hire a plumber to add a 2 inch PVC pipe to your drainage pipe which extends to a point behind your washing machine & then points upwards, making sure it is long enough to be at a higher point than your machines fullest water level.
This should be a relatively inexpensive alteration & will ensure that water does not drain unless the machine is on its drain cycle.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,
Graeme

Asko 10505 - wash finished, door won't open


it is most likely your machine may have a draining problem. if it cant drain the water out the door wont open. if you open the small door at the front bottom of the machine you will find the little black drain hose. unplug the hose off the door and drain machine. when the machine is empty try powering on and opening the door. if still no luck you will see (in the same location) a red pull ring. undo the screw holding the ring in position and gently pull until the door releases. it would be worth undoing the button trap lid to access the pump and check for any blockages (most common coins **** pins etc) let me know how you get on.
