If the pump is working and not burned it seems that the filter is bloked the filter is at the lower base; open the front lower cover and you can see it.

If the pump is running but water is not fully emptying you could have a plugged drain on the bottom of the drum. Make certain that the small hole on the drain is clear also. This is very important as this is how the machine knows whether it is empty or not. If there is a filter you will want to clean it also. Good luck.

My washer wont spin,


If you had to empty the water manually, i.e the outlet pump did not drain the water out then I would suggest the pump is either blocked or has failed. This will normally prevent the spin cycle from occurring. Try checking and cleaning the pump filter out.

Hi, I own a Whirlpool Thin Twin Model# LT5000XSN1. I bought it used from a CRAPPY dealer (worst mistake EVER), since day one, we have had an issue with the spin cycle. The cycle will agitate then when the...


This sounds like a classic clogged empty pump issue. The empty cycle is timed and then it steps on to the spin cycle. The machine won't spin if there is still water in the bottom of the drum. When you reset it to a spin cycle again, you are making it run through the empty cycle again, finally getting rid of the water that the clogged filter could not evacuate on the first attempt.

You need to clean the empty pump filter. Now... Where is the filter???? Hmmmm... not sure. It MAY be behind a little panel in the front of the machine near the bottom. I can't find a picture of the machine on the net so I'm not sure.

Clean the filter, I'll bet your problem goes away. You have to wonder why the idiot who sold the machine to you hasn't suggested this!

Machine filled with water itself and does not empty.


Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.


And rate me nice pl for the free help!

WMA54 won't empty water? We've emptied filter but


Could be the pump, but they do not often fail.
I would check the main hose or the pump itself for a blockage.
Try blowing down the hose to see if it is clear.

Water will not empty out drum


You need to check the pump filter, if it is not at the lower right front of washer, then remove lower rear cover of washer, remove large black hose fastened to bottom of drum, and remove and clean plastic filter inside hose.

Whirlpool washer AWM 5145/5 water wont drain/stops on B


I had same problem twice, the first time there was a sock in the filter at the front adjoining the pump, the second time a sock had got in the pipe under the drum which is more awkward to get to but is possible if you have the tools to remove the back plate and are ok at diy, there is a spring tension clip on the pipe which comes off quite easily with a pair of pliers.

Motor running drum not emptying


sounds like maybe a blocked pump.Probably got a coin or sock or some lint in the pump.Has your machine got a filter ? What happens when you position the program switch on a spin section and turn it on ? does it pump out the water ?

Water will not empty


Hello
you either have a blockage in the filter or you pump is not working.
how to check is diconnect the waste pipe and lower it to ground level if the water does not empty then its a blockage. if it empties then its the pump.
other things it can be is a blockage where the waste pipe is connected or a loose wire to the pump..
