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.

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!

Washing machine won't drain

When your washing machine won't drain, it could be as simple as a kinked hose or as complicated as a faulty impeller on the pump. Overloading your washing machine can cause items to be swept into the space between the inner and outer tub, leading to clogs in the drain hose or pump. These clogs may be the reason for why your washing machine won't drain. Here are some steps to help you determine the problem and solution:

1. Pinched hose: Is the drain hose at the back of the washer been flattened or twisted in any area? A pinched hose could prevent the water from draining thoroughly. Gently straighten the hose, and make sure there is sufficient room between the back of the washing machine and the wall to prevent a repeat of the problem.

2. Clogged drain hose or pump:
Does the drum spin normally, but the washing machine won't drain the water? Sometimes a piece of clothing, money, fabric or other debris gets into the water between the inner and outer tub. It may then make its way into a drain hose or even into the pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. Call a repair professional for help.

3. Faulty timer: Does your machine fill with water and begin agitating, but the cycle never advances far enough to allow the water to drain? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. Arrange for washing machine repair service.

4. Worn or loose belts: Are clothes still soaked at the end of a wash, even though the washing machine appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. This is a job for the pros.

5. Faulty or jammed internal impeller on pump: When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? The internal impeller that moves the water through the drain pump may be faulty or jammed. A grinding or grating sound is almost always an indication of a coin, button or other object colliding with the impeller. Have a washing machine repair expert determine if the impeller is jammed and can be cleared, or if the pump needs to be replaced.

6. Pump failure: Is your washing machine more than 7 years old? Your pump may simply have worn out. Even if it sounds as though it is running, the pump may not be working well enough to draw the water out of the machine. Replacement parts for pumps are generally unavailable. A new pump may be necessary.

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.

Check the drain hose to make sure you have a high loop, ie. make sure the drain hose loops above the height of the washer lid before going to the drain pipe.
Also make sure the drain hose is not going too far down into the drain pipe.
You may be getting a siphon effect.
