Washer spins but wont drain


Its best to list brand and model if possible but I'll give a couple of universal things to check. 1st would be a possible drain pump or hose blockage. 2nd the drain pump itself is bad or not running. Could be a loose wire to the pump. Those are the easiest things to check.

Elba washer is not washing or spinning right...the only thing its doing is adding water


I couldn't tell if the water was draining. When you advance the cycle to spin the first thing it should do is drain the water. This will happen for a short time before it spins. If it is not draining then you need to check the drain pump for blockages( and pipes) the machine will not spin with water in it! If it is draining but not spinning then it is probably a faulty lid switch and needs replacing. There are a couple of other causes but they will usually create a fault code which you don't seem to have. Most likely blocked or faulty drain pump.

Washer does not drain and does not end cycle


To solve you are problem you need to check this following things in you are washing machine.
*Has the drain hose been put flat on the floor?
*Is the drain hose clogged with lint?
*Is the drain hose kinked?
*Is any part of the drain hose higher than 20 cms from the floor level?
*Is the extension drain hose longer than 3 m.
*Is a narrow drain hose being used?

Check this thing then your machine will be back to normal..Thanks for your question.

My Sharp Washing Machine ES-6515TS still drains even if the drain control is already closed and sometimes water goes out to the spinners tub.


PROBABLY THERE ARE THINGS THAT BLOCKING THE DRAIN, IT MIGHT BE COINS, PARTS OF CLOTHES, PANTY OR HANKY. SIMPLY OPEN THE BACKSIDE OF YOUR WASHING MACHINE, UNSCREW THE DRAIN LINE COUNTER CLOCK WISE TO OPEN THE VALVE FOR DRAIN. YOU'LL BE AMAZED OF THINGS PRESENT INSIDE THE DRAIN VALVE. AFTER THAT IT WILL BE OK FOR YEARS. I BROKE MY SPIN DRY MOTOR AND RUBBER BELOUSE, FUSE 3X. SHARP TECHNICIAN CAN'T FIND THE PROBLEM WHICH I DID AFTER 5 YEARS. I HOPE IT WILL BE HELPFUL TO YOU.---ROMMEL OF MANILA PHILIPPINES.---rtlagasac@hotmail.com

Will not drain. it does'nt look like its spinning very fast.


The washing machine not draining water.This problem is related to few possibilities. 1) The drain pump is got loose to the drain hose. check the connection from drain hose to drain pump. 2) The drain is blocked by any thing.Like cloth or any thing like metallic nails or coils etc etc. 3) The drain hose is got blocked./The drain hose is not letting the water to enter the drain pump. In most of the cases the drain pump has to be removed and checked for any kind of blockages.Also if the machine not draining can effect the spin cycle.But other possibilities for no spin or slow spin are faulty or broken motor coupler or weak spin motor.The motor coupler and motor both can be possible,if the drain pump and drain hose both checked ok.This will clear the fault. ----------- Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks,.

My washer wont drain


Hello there:
There are several things that could cause this condition a clogged drain hose or a faulty drain pump or the timer it'self is not going into the extraction cycle or a drain solinoid valve that is bad
I would first check the drain hose to ensure that it is clear of any obstructions and if at all possiable remove the drain hose from the machine and check that area realy well, next when the machine is going into the drain cycle listen for the drain pump to kick in if it doesent this may be your problem that the pump itself is not working and needs to be replaced if yo do hear the drain valve click and it is not draining the pump itself may be clogged so in this case you would have to have the pump removed and inspected and repaired if necessary ok
So please check out these things and see if any of these apply ok?
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards MIchael

Wont drain water


the first thing to check is the drain pump.there could be a foreign object blocking the pump.
use a shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose if the water comes out freely then the pump is stuck with some thing small ( could also be bad ) if the water does not drain easy there is a piece of clothing blocking the pump
