Washer won't spin or drain

Hello,

My washer stops itself at the end of the light wash cycle and won't drain or spin or even advance. Could this be a problem of the motor or the controller? Any advice? Please help!

    Unfortunately, I don't hear a click when I open or close the lid. What could this mean?

  • Hilaryrock Jul 13, 2008

    Hi I have a similar problem on my new HW-C1260TVE-U washer. I have tried several washes an spin cycles / speeds. The washing machine will not spin for mor than 5-10 seconds during the spin cycle and ends with the UnB error. There is no problem with the pump or water as the washer is draining before it attempts to spin. The macine is on level ground and stable. Does anyone have a solution for this error

The problem is most likely the lid switch assembly. The lid switch is a safety feature that will **t allow the washer to go into the spin cycle unless the lid is shut (so ** wandering children get caught inside).

If the switch is working, you should hear a click when the door closes and makes contact with it. If the lid switch is defective/broken, the washing machine usually won't drain or spin. If it's bad, you will need to replace it. It should be mounted inside of the cabinet, just under the door of the washer (on most models). Please let me k**w if this corrects your problem.

I just had this exact problem and I know what you are looking for. If you are in the middle of your wash and when it gets to rinse, beeps then does nothing you will have to do the following. Unplug your washer and drain the fluid from the hose in the back. Then you will have to unscrew the back so you can access the Drain Pump. (look up drain pump for haier washer to see picture, when panel is pulled off usually lower left , same side as drain hose, there is a plastic case over it usually.) you will have to loosen the three base screws that the pump is connected to. Once you do that you can pick up the pump but it is connected to wires. You will see a harness with wires, remove that, then you can take the pump to a place that is well lit and twist the case open. There may be fragments, coins or just regular build up in the pump that needs to be cleaned out. You can slide out the propeller and clean the entire case and pump(when you pull out the propeller there will be a long metal rod with a decent sized magnet) wipe everything down and make sure it is free to move and spin. I took marine grease and rubbed the casing and the magnet before inserting. You should be good to reinstall. Double check everything before you start because a leak or loose hose can make a pain in the neck , a nightmare!
Just remember , after the washing machine is drained , there will be water left in the lines and pump so be prepared for some extra water.
That should take care of it, Hope this post saves ya!

Kenmore washer 80 series does not 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. 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.

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.

Kenmore series 80 washer won't drain after wash cycle


Try the 'drain' portion of a few of the other cycles (heavy, perm. press, delicates) and see if it will drain/spin there. You can also try advancing the timer slowly through the 'spin' portion to see if it kicks in anywhere.

If it will rinse and spin in the other cycles, you most likely have a bad timer.

Hope this helps.

There's an auxiliary switch in the door lock.switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. The machine will NEVER advance to the spin cycle unless the auxiliary switch is activated as a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during a high-speed spin cycle that may result in physical injury. The drum tumbles back and forth while the machine control checks the auxiliary if activated but since it's not, the control will not command the motor speed control to spin the drum at high speed. These symptoms may indicate a faulty door lock/switch assembly and may need replacement.

Hello there:
If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle should advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. than check the cold water supply line and the filter
