Thanks for the suggeston, after further investigation I found the drain pump impeller to be siezed due to pieces of material wrapped around it, also the particle filter from the drum was clogged up. All cleared and now machine is working correctly.

When the machine is full of water detach the waste pipe from wherever it is connected i.e under the sink or some other type of drainage ..

Lay the pipe on the floor (ground level ) if the water comes out then their is no blockage and you need a new drain pump.

easy to change with the slightest of mechanical knowlegde

I have a top laoder whirlpool8564990 it don´t spin well it leaves my clothes soaked and it goes to spinning cycle yet it don´t spin


From the information you have supplied, I suspect that the machine is not draining the water away,
1] Check that the drain pump is working (it would be easier to hear it running, before the machine starts the spin cycle, or if your machine has a "drain down" feature)
2] If the pump is running, stop the machine and unplug it from the mains power. Remove the machine drain tube from the point where it is plumbed into the household waste pipe, and lay it down into a bucket, or large pan and allow the water to drain down [ you should expect to get up to 2 gallons (10 Litres) of water from the machine]
Allow the water to drain down completely by holding the drain hose as low as possible into the bucket.
3] once the water has drained completely, remove the drain hose from the pump and check that the drain hose is not blocked.
4] If the hose was clear, and the pump was running (in tests [1] & [2] ), it will be necessary to check that the drain pump, and the main hose from the tub to the pump are clear of obstructions.
Remove any foreign objects, and re-assemble the hoses to the pump to the machine, and the drain hose to the domestic plumbing.

Plug the machine into the mains power, and and set the machine to run on the "last rinse" and "spin" cycles and test to see if the problem has been rectified.

I hope this helps cure your problem.

Trying to find pump.


Hi - I understand you will like to know where to find pump and check for clogs. Try the following steps below and hope it is helpful:

To completely clear any clogs in the washing machine drain you will use a pipe auger (snake). Start at the roof plumbing vent and drop cable to roughly 10 or 15 feet past the actual drain. If there is a clog present, the snake will bring up a chunk of debris. Remove it from the top of the vent and discard.

The drain hose is visible toward the bottom of this washing machine. It is held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws.

Remove the drain hose from the back of the washing machine. This is normally held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws. When a drain backup occurs, pieces of debris can lodge in the hose, causing clogs and odors.

Soak the hose in a bucket of warm bleach water.

Soak the drain hose in a bucket of warm water mixed with 1 cup of bleach. Look to see if the line is free of obstructions. Run a small length of clothes hanger through the hose to clear any hard debris.

Reattach drain hose and connect to drain pipe.

Reattach the drain hose using a screwdriver or pliers. Insert the hose into the washing machine drain. Be sure it is all the way into the drain opening.

Run the washer through a full cycle with 2 cups of bleach added.

Cycle the washer with warm water and 2 cups of bleach. The bleach will help remove any odor-causing particles in the machine and drain hose. Running the washing machine through a cycle will help flush away any remnants of the drain pipe clog.

Washing cycle wont finish, has trouble emptying


if it drains into a bucket it should drain into the stand pipe too,does it overflow out of the stand pipe (waste pipe) when draining?if so the pipe is blocked,also how high is the pipe?draining into a bucket might be less on the pump because gravity is helping drain if bucket is on floor,if the pipe is up high it might not be able to push it,there could be something in the drain hose that goes from the tub to the pump if it did drain no problems before,also when you stick the drain hose into the stand pipe if it's tight it might not have enough air getting into pipe to let it drain,fill the washer,put it on drain after you have some water in it,pull the drain hose out to the top of the stand pipe and let it drain,if it drains ok and water is going down pipe with no back up then it's an air problem,hard to say without being there,you're just gonna have to play detective,did you try to hold the bucket up higher than the washer so the water won't siphon out,if the bucket is up higher than the water level in the machine and it drains then you have a problem with the stand pipe or air gap problem.

Hello,
After you the drain to discharge the remain water and the tub is visibly dry of water,then you open and load it do you see standing water after you have drained and know it was gone??
If that is the case what i believe your trouble is that where the dishwasher drain connects to disposer under the sink the drain hose is only leading from that nozzle downward,if that is so what is happening is the dishwasher is draining ok but backfilling whenever water runs through the sink. To fix that use a string on plastic zip tie and attach a portio of the drain hose so at one point the drain hose under the sink is higher that the nozzle and water in the sink will longer run into the hose and run upward since water is only going to drain down and wont ever rise on its own.The drain pump is powerful enough to push the drain water up that "HIGHLOOP" very easily.

Good luck i hope this has helped you to fix your dishwasher,

The wash cycle is taking a lot longer to do, for example the 30 min wash is taking 1 hour and sometimes longer, the motor seems fine, could it have something to do with the pump


Hi.

When the cycle hangs it means that because of a fault the conditions to advance are not met.

If the washer hangs at start (filling), then there is either a problem with water pressure, blocked inlet, or water flowing back from drain hose because of incorrect hose settings (called siphoning).

If machine hangs mid cycle, then it is often a temperature related problem. Check thermostat and element or check hot inlet and thermostat if dual inlet. Testing requires disassembling and use of the multimeter.

If machine hangs mid cycle or end of the cycle (before spin), then it can be drain system. Check drain hose, drain filter attached to pump and check the pressure switch.

Most machines have a service sheet hidden inside the control panel assembly. The tech sheets shows how to run a diagnostic cycle that will tell where the problem is.

Most common faults resulting in long cycle are heat-related and drain problems.

Regards.

Ld signal won't drain


For the LD error please check for the following:


  • Check for kinked or clogged Drain Hose: Remove any obstructions in the drain hose / stand pipe / utility sink. Straighten the hose to remove any kinks. If the washer is unable to drain due to a kinked or restricted drain hose, the washer may not spin.
  • Check for Standpipe higher than 8 feet above the floor:The pump is not powerful enough to pump water to heights greater than 8ft. The water will remain in the basket.
  • Check for excessive suds in the washer: Drain pumps cannot drain suds out of the washer.
To clear the suds condition: Check the drain hose and make sure the hose is not plugged or kinked Press pause/cancel twice to clear the display Run the machine through a Rinse/Spin cycle using cold water, then a Normal cycle using cold water.

Note: Do NOT add any additional detergent. This will remove much of the remaining detergent held in the fabric. This step may have to be repeated to remove all the detergent.
