Re: water running out from under the washer

Sounds like two seperate problems. firsst water running from under your machine might be a bad seal, or water could be backing up the drain line. i would guess that it is a plumbing problem because of theissue with water in the sink. have a plumber snake out the drain lines and the problem with the washer should disappear.

Can only run washer on small load,anything bigger,water just runs out drain.Small loads are killing us,its an extra load,top washer

Check the position of your drain hose in the pipe or sink. It's probably too low relative to the washer tub fill level. You need to make sure that the end of the hose is higher than the maximum fill level of the washer tub. (The pump in the washer can push the water up to 3-5' higher than the washer. So if you have the hose connecting to a drain pipe, it should be at least 3 1/2-4' high if the washer is on the floor. If you have your drain hose directed to flow into a sink, you may need to raise the sink or put a pipe into the sink to raise the drain hose. If you add a drain pipe, you'll need to make sure it won't shift when the washer pumps out the water.)

I hope this helps.

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.

Why won't my washer won't spin or drain

If the water is not removed first, the spin will not occur. Do you hear the pump run when it starts the spin cycle? If nothing, the pump may be jammed with debris, or the motor itself may have failed. If the motor runs, but no water comes out of the drain, then look for a kinked drain hose (inside the cabinet) or possibly a stray sock lodged in the drain outlet under the outer tub. Sometimes the pump impeller will come loose from the motor shaft causing loss of pump action. Hope that some of this helps!

Washer will not drain. I can hear the pump running, have checked the filter and the hose for blockage...still will not drain.


To make sure the pump is working properly, open the filter. If you have water left in the machine, this will gush out once you twist open the filter, so be prepaired for that.

Most LG font loaders have a thin drain tube next to the filter cap, you can drain the water out slowly into a bucket before hand.

Once you have taken the filter out, Start the machine on the "Drain" or "Spin Cycle. Look into the filter cavity with a torch and see if the pump propelors are spinning properly and that they havent brocken off from the motor shaft.

Please dont stick your fingers in there whilst it is running. If the pump seems to be turning O.K. then the only other thing which I can think of is a coin which has blocked off or closed off one of the hoses.
I have seen cases where the diameter of a coin is exactly the same as the drain hose, and once lodged in there, it makes a perfet wall and blocks water flow.

You will need to check all the hoses individually by taking them off. First remove the hose leading out from under the tank going to the water pump. Then the drain hose going from the pump to your sink or drain. Sometimes it may be easier to lay the machine on its back and access the hose from underneath the machine.

Take note of how the hoses are joined on so that you can put them back on as they were.

Good luck

When the wash is finished it doesnt drain the

 Make sure that there is no blockage in the drain hose and that it is not kinked.  Is the drain hose installed correctly?  If you have connected your machine to a sink waste system, make sure that you have cut out the membrane from the under sink drainage system.
 Ensure that the drainage system, standpipe or under sink connection is free from any blockage. - If any of the above are found to be the cause of your problem you will need to run the machine through a spin only programme.  If you have chosen ‘Rinse Hold’, the light will flash until you press the ‘Rinse Hold’ button to continue the programme.

Machine locked up. Barrel quit spinning.

first you got to empty washer by manual,get a bowl on to the floor then pull the drain pipe out of the pipe that goes outside or from under the sink,empty washer this way then the door will open,as it wont open as a result of it having water in it,when you have done this make sure you check your motor bushes,im sure that they have worn,just replace them at a cost of £10.00,they are easy to replace.rgrds paul

Blocked sink maybe equalls non spin or drain of washer

It depends on where the sink is blocked, and how the washing machine plumbing is set up.

If the sink is blocked in the p-trap under the sink, and the washing machine does not drain to that trap, then it's a separate problem.

That being said, if this is in fact the way the washing machine is plumbed, then it indicates that there is not an air gap between the washing machine hose and the drain. There must be an air gap or the washer will likely not drain, regardless of how it is plumbed to the sink or not.

Reply back with further information, or if you need clarification. But yes, the sink being plugged could be the cause of the washer problem, or may just be coincidental and not have anything to do with it.

Kenmore 22062 will not cycle correctly

Problem fixed. I took apart the bottom of the washer to access the pump, and found that there was underwire from bras stuck in the discharge tube blocking the water from exiting the washer and that was causing the cycle problem. I guess that the washer knew that there was too much water in the tub and kept trying to expel it.
