Remove hose going from tub to pump. Do this at the pump not the tub. Should be able to remove debris now. But really depends on your brand of washer. You may have a clean out on yours too.

Our dishwasher isn't draining

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

My line is clogged. No manuel what do I turn on to get the clog out? Recirclation, close frame or waste out?

You probably have to unclog the line by disassembling and removing the obstruction. If the suction line comes from the skimmer or bottom of the pool and the discharge line goes from the pump to the pool return, the flow only goes one way regardless of the filter settings, remember, the pump always pulls and pushes water in the same direction.

The washer pauses mid-cycle. The pump filter is not clogged. After watching the GE video on how to unclog the pump filter, it said if the pump filter was not clogged there may be an imbalance problem. ...

Make sure that your cold water side of the water valve on the back of the unit is no clogged. Mid cycle is usually when the rinse cycle begins and that usually only uses cold water.

The G.E.dishwasher has water standing. first it was the clogged sink. I took the pipes out and unclogged them. Now it is the d.w.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

As the water did not drain completely then check the drain hose & drain pump filter for any clogs/obstructions, if you have already cleaned these parts and the unit will not work then replacing the drain pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a front loader. Have had it for 3 years always worked just fine never a problem. It stopped when I was washing a front door mat and has yet to work since. It won't let any water in to fill and...

If the problem is just the pump being clogged,,, its very simple. Remove the back panel, or the front bottom panel (if your model has one) and locate the pump. Make sure ALL power is disconnected, and all electrical parts are covered because once you disconnect the tubing from the drum, and pump, all the water will be let out. If there is nothing clogging the tubing, you'll have to remove the drain pump and take a look inside.

Stuck between cycles

It seams to me that your pump and/or water outlet is clogged. Humming noise comes from the water pump as it tries to pump out water. You should unplug the machine, unclog the outlet pipe if it is clogged. While you're at it check if the filter in front of the pump isn't clogged too.
