To clean the pump on a top load u can take the cabinet off to get acess if u know how to remove the parts or disssemble it if not......

tip washer back so u can acesss underneath, unplug unit, turn water offf, get a bucket and towels and channel locks remove clamps that hold it to motor,, remove clamps for hoses on each port empty contents into bin, thats bout it if defective must replace either part # 3363394 (both port holes the same) it is the most common or a 3363892 (bigger port hole on one side)


if u have a fronload remove bottom panel by removing screws below panel, remove, same thing water and power off, turn drain pump cap off, empty contents into small pan and inspect, these pumps arent reallly serviceble so if defective its best to replace the partts hope this helps have a good day

Why will Haier HLP21E drain following wash cycle, but not drain following rinse cycle/before spin cycle?


Hello Michael;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

It sounds like your system just needs a good cleaning. Soap film will build up on the draining system components. You need to clean your float and insure it moves freely and makes contact with the float switch which turns on the pump. You may also need to disassemble your pump for cleaning.

There are products available for cleaning clothes washers, but these need to be used on a regular bases. I do not think they can clean enough to solve your current problem. Use after you have cleaned.

You might have a loose connection to the pump or from the pump to the CCU Remove the top of the washer and make sure that the wire coming from the pump to the CCU is fully in and it's not loose

Pump won't drain water and keeps faulting for pump cleaning. Have turned it off, unplugged pump filter, cleaned it and restarted it several times with no luck. What else could be wrong??


Check to see if there is a drain filter. My GE has a small "door" at the bottom of the machine that has a filter behind it. If so ALL of the water will drain when you open it so be prepared. Then clean all of the junk from inside the filter or "trap"

WL80T65C - error 245, can you please advise on this error?


The error 245 is a drain pump stall. Take the pump out from the bottom of the machine (2 screws) and clean it out. The resistance between the red and blue, blue and white, and red and white wires should be 16 ohms, if not, replace the pump.If the resistance is ok then clean the drain pump and drain hose to which the pump is connected.Clean it with normal tap water.Then refit it and check.In most of the cases cleaning the pump and hose helps.In some cases the pump has to be replaced/.----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

F2 message appearing on washer, what does that mean


Something clogging the pump or drain line. Clean out the drain pump catchment.

- Pull the suction boot off the drain pump, clean out any gookus.

- Blow through the drain hose starting from the connection at the pump.

- If all else checks out, replace the pump.

This is how to clean the drain pump catchment: Remove the bottom front panel to see a white plastic catch basin with a removable-by-hand, large facing forward lid (peanut butter container sized) Remove it and clean out.

I have philips whirlpool awo/d 4605 model and its showing a light clean pump where do i find the pump???


Hi,
The unit front portion either right side or left side you will find the small door you just open the door and remove the filter in anticlockwise direction it will come out just clean the filter and then close it safely
If you want to clean the pump you are suppose to open the back door of the unit and trace the outlet valve it will be connected to the pump after finding the pump just remove the hose from bothe side of the pump and clean the drain pump neatly and refix it

New cartridge-wont pump cleaner


The cleaning fluid "pump" is actually a small Mabuchi 6V DC motor that uses two small plastic spur gears in mesh to "pump" the fluid up a tube into the cleaning reservoir. Mine has died also and I cannot find a replacement motor. The cheapest I have found the base is here: http://www.electricshaverstore.com/get_item_scc1_braun-syncro-clean-charge.htm Good luck, Lynn Livingston
