Yes it is Ok you probably have something blocking your pump. Facing the washer take a thin but stiff putty knife come over from the edge of the washer about 2-4 inches and insert the knife you should feel a spring clip when you push in at the same time lift the top a little. Do that to both sides. Then take the two screws out of the bottom of the front panel slide it down then off. You will see a hose coming down from the tub to the pump if you have a wet vac remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and use the vac to pull the water out of the washer squeeze the hose up and down to see if any thing is in it. If you don't have a wet vac go to the auto parts store and get a pair of radiator hose clamp pliers and clamp the hose coming from the tub to the pump. Put down some towels and remove the hose from the pump .With a flashFWS 747RFSI - image2.gif light look in the pump to see if there is a foreign object jamming it or blocking it if any of the impeller blades or broken you will have to replace the pump then reassemble and if you used the hose clamps don't forget to remove them .let me know what you find

WHIRLPOOL Washer #LA5578XTW0 won't drain

Is the end of the hose where the water comes out into the sewage up at the top height of the machine? on some machines if it is lower than the top height (not lower or heigher but level with the top of the machine) it automatacally closes off the drain Flapper preventing the water from draining.

check the hose; disconnect the hose from the machine and take a deep breath and blow through the hose as hard as you can. if there is no obstruction, replace the hose ( bet there is a sock stuck in the drain hose).

with the drain hose off~check where it connects to the machine, some machines have a "flapper" that closes when the machine is in operation and opens when it drains. Unplug the machine, then see if the flapper is loose enough to open and close. Also check to see if something is stuck behind that "flapper" preventing it from opening to let the water drain.

Washing Machines will not rinse or spin

If the water won't drain out of your washing machine, either something is stuck in the drain hose or pump, or the pump is broken. Both fixes are simple if you're even just a little bit handy with tools. We're showing the repair on a Maytag washing machine.
What is wrong with a washer that does not spin?
If your washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drivewashing machines do not have belts.) To diagnose the problem, do the following: 1Check the washing machine's spin cycle.

When the timer reaches the spin cycle the water does not drain or spin. All other functions are working.

Hello Joe, thank you for your inquiry!

From what you have described your Frigidaire washer will not drain or spin. I would recommend checking on the drain hose to make sure it is not restricted or too long. Also check to make sure your drain hose is not too far down your drain pipe. If the drain hose is in good condition it might be a possible problem with your timer or drain pump. Since it could any one of those underlying issues I would recommend having a professional technician out. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Water discharging from drain hose by itself while running washing machine, drain switch not functioning

It sounds like you have a simple syphon running. The end of the drain hose MUST be higher than half way up the height of the drum. If the hose is lower than this then physics is not on your side and water will simply fall out of the hose because the end is lower than the height of the water in the drum!

Whirlpool Duet Sport Washer (model: wfw8300sw02) partially drains. Clothes spin out as dry as ever, but 2-4 cups of water are always left in the filter/pump. I've 1) emptied the filter 2) disconnected...

puzzled here because there is always some water left in machine this is normal .you are quite right when you say that when you take the drain hose out of stand pipe and lower it water comes out but that is because of gravity .

Is there a height requirement for the water inlet to a top loading washing machine? Is there a height requirement for the water outlet/drain to a top loading washing machine?

There is no requirement for the water inlet, but the drain hose does, one it comes out of the machine it needs to go up to roughly the height of the machine before it goes into the drain. Hope this helps

Wahing machine wont spin out with full load .will with small load

I would check to see if you have a kink in your drain hose. The timer allows the same amount of time to drain if it is a full load or a 1/2 load. If the drain hose is kinked it restricts the volume of water being drained leaving water in the tub when doing a full load.
