Question about Washing Machines
My hotpoint model number WLW3400SBLWH won't drain out the water when it spins. This happened a few years ago and a repauir man fixed it in 5 minutes. A sock was stuck in the drain tube. Can you tell me how to check for that?
I have a top loading hotpoint and a feather blanket broke open and the washing machine would not drain or spin.
I had to empty it by hand(syphon and scooping), then unplug the washing machine and un hook the drain pipe and water hoses. I then tipped it over and unsrcrewed all the screws to find the pump. There should be a black hose going into it. You must take that black hose off by loosening the clamp. Once I took that off I could see the pump completely clogged with feathers. I removed the feathers and hooked everything back up. It took me about 25 min to do the entire process.
hope this helps.

I had the exact same problem, My Dogs bed ripped open and the washer would not drain and the pump would just hummmmmm... basically on its way to burning out or starting a fire. I manually removed all the water, tipped it on its side and removed all the screws from bottom and lower back. I could not get the front area to come off so I basically folded the aluminum out of the way, removed the pump... took the 3 screws off and took out all the stuffing... AND DO NOT FORGET TO HOOK UP THE 2 WIRES BACK TO THE PUMP OR YOU WILL HAVE TO START ALL OVER AS I DID!!!!
