More likely to be a blocked filter, or pump.
Look for a filter at bottom front of washer, possibly behind a plastic cover, turn anti-clockwise to remove.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Water wont drain away when in its final spin,and i have have fitted a new drain pump


If you changed the drain pump I would check the following things:
1) Is the machine actually sending power to the pump to turn it on. You can check this by using a volt meter and with the machine open disconnect the power to the pump and place machine in drain and test to see if voltaqge is being sent to the pump
2) Check your lines and the drain itself. Any blockages could prevent draining.

Frigidaire model fex831fs4 will not drain or spin


My problem was a little different but I want to post this for others that might experience the same.

My Frigidaire Washer/Dryer Stack Combo Model FEX831FS4 was not draining and had a humming/buzzing noise when it got to drain/rinse cycle. This is usually and probably caused by a small sock or thin or small underwear that got sucked out the top and into the drain hose. I have no idea why they did not design this with a rubber flap like most washers to protect from items going up and out but here's how you fix it.

IF your unit is having this issue STOP and don't try runnin drain/rinse cylces anymore or you may damage the water pump and have to buy a new one. I think I damaged mine from trying to drain the water so many times with a sock clogged in there... but so far it is working anyway, just with a buzzing noise.

HERES THE FIX

You need to TAKE OFF the FRONT COVER and REMOVE the ITEMS FROM the HOSE leading to the WATER PUMP. The water pump is on the bottom front left and theres only TWO SCREWS to get off the FRONT COVER of the washer/dryer. They are on the bottom by the feet. Have someone tilt the unit backwards and unscrew them with a phillips head and then pull the front cover down and off. There is a rubber snap pin in the top center of the cover but it will come loose as you pull down.

In order to get at the water pump you do NOT need to pull the washer/dryer out, you can get at everything from the front. However it might be a wise decision to unplug the power since water will be draining everywhere.

First siphon out all the water in the tub, whatever you don't siphon will immediately coming rushing out once you remove the hose from the water pump.


I would UNPLUG the electrical connector on that water pump and tie it up out of the way because even if you siphoned the water there will still be water in the hoses and probably under the washer tub some.

Disconnect the hose that comes from the tub to the water pump. That's where I found a small children's sock clogging the pump. Dry off the water pump plug connector pins if they got wet (where you removed the plug from) and reconnect the electric connector.

We tried many times to run the drain cycle before taking the washer/dryer apart so your water pump might be shot as I think mine is. Now mine always makes a buzzing noise as if it's wore out from being worked with a sock blocking it's inner part. You might need to replace your water pump.

Brand new SGS57A02GB just fitted. Run initial cleaning wash to get rid of factory water. Drain starts then stops, starts filling, goes through 2 filling cycles then the drain pump starts. The drain pump...


Hi,

This problem is mostly caused by the drain pump or a restricted drain line. Try taking the end of the drain hose off under the sink and re-checking the drain-out condition. If the unit is still not draining, I recommend replacing the drain pump.

Other possibilities could be that the sump is blocked, or the control or harness may need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

I have the GE whdsr209doww- leaks all through cycle at the back draintube. I am going to get a new drain tube , but could it be the pump not holding the water in the tub?


FYI, the pump does not have a valve which prevents the water from leaving the tub during wash cycles.
If you were to remove the drain line from the machine the water in the tub would siphon.
I think you are moving in the right direction by replacing the drain tube. Also inspect the other connections from the tub to the water pump and water pump to drain tube..
Good luck...

Will drain water


110-120v motors are designed to run only one direction they cannot be reversed a more likely solution is that something is blocking the line for water to flow out or that the impeller is not turning try taking the hose off the top (be careful not to get wet ) and turn the pump on to see if water comes out top if it does line is blocked, if not time to get new pump

LG WT-R801 keeps draining


If the cycle does not stop draining that is usually because of a faulty membrane switch that controls the water level in your appliance.
The faulty sensor cause the machine to think that there is still water inside, even when water has drained completely.

Washer won't fill up


The problem is most likely your drain. If there is no air break at the drain,( a gap where the hose goes into the pipe so air can enter) Your water will siphon out of the machine. Also make sure your drain pipe is higher than the tub of your washer and you only want about 6 inches of the drain hose sticking into the pipe. If you have water coming back out of the pipe when the machine drains, you will need a plumber to clean the pipes or replumb the drain. New washers pump out faster than older ones did and they need a good drain to handle the flow.
