    My other washing machine water output hose was attached with a clamp but this is not. It appears to be coming from inside the machine and I can't figure out how to open that area (if it can be open)

Normally, they are just clamped to the outlet of the water pump. but be aware that you still need to raise the part of the hose as they come out of the unit in order for the machine to work. if you leave the hose just lying on the ground,as the machine fills up, water would be leaking down the drain even though water pump is not running. pressure switch will not be triggered and machine will not run.

    is your washing machine front loading or top loading? it could be clamped on the inside. you can tilt the machine to look under to trace where the hose leads to. im sure it would be connected to its water pump. from there you can clamped a longer hose. if the bottom is not accesible, there should be a part there where you can acces it. sometimes you need to remove the whole front cover in some front loading machines.

Tip

My Maytag Neptune washer takes longer than usual to complete the cycle.


Hi.


When the washing machine is working, takes an unusually long time to complete the cycle, that is not usually do to a control unit (CCU) fault, but to the fact that one condition needed to follow on the cycle is not met. The CCU may have to wait a longer time, and will not proceed to complete the cycle.

The most obvious thing to check are the water hoses, checking the drain hose and the inlets. If water is not coming with sufficient pressure, or if one of the hoses is blocked or kinked, the cycle time may take much longer than normal.

Other common problems are the pressure switch (SWITCH, PRESSURE), that detects water level, and the thermostat (on self heating models only).
The pressure switch determines when to stop filling and draining. If the pressure switch is faulty, then drain and filling may take much longer or go on forever.


Check also that water valve and dispenser valve are not clogged. (VALVE, WATER) and (DISPENSER VALVE )


On the water valve there may be a thermistor (not all models), check that the thermistor contact is not disconnected (WATER VALVE W' THERMISTOR) , as the thermistor may also be faulty.

Can we lengthen the discharge hose?


Yes, you can but if you are making it longer to go to a higher drain you may incur problems with water in tube. Some models have an options for high output pumps but yours may not. Just be sure you use proper hose clamps to secure the new connection properly.

I want to change my LG front load washer so i will open to the right


Sorry, but the door on the washers are not reversible, only the dryer doors are reversible. I'd suggest using a low profile telescopic style dryer vent to allow you to put the washer on the left side without worrying about the dryer vent location. You can get longer dryer power cords if needed, and water supply extention hoses, or just longer hoses if needed. The drain hose is usually long enough to still reach the drain. I have done this many times.

GE Drain Hose


Hi, Does this washer have to pump the water up into a drain? If it is possible, it would be better for the machine if you can bring the drin pipe closer to the washer. I know it is not always a possibilty. The longer the drain hose, the harder it is on the washer and sometimes the cloths don't spin out as dry as they will with a short drain hose.

When starting to wash water goes straight out of


The drain you are putting the drain hose into needs to be at least 30 inches above the floor. You probably have the drain hose to low or laying on the floor for this to be happening.
