You may have a condition known as "siphoning". This is caused by the drain hose not being high enough off the floor, or not having a proper air gap at the standpipe in order to drain properly. This creates a suction and the washer will constantly drain (siphon) as it tries to fill. The following link explains:

In the majority of the cases, this problem is attributed to improper installation, rather than an actual problem with the washer. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

You may have some articles that made their way into the pump housing. Alot of times I see dimes get stuck in the ports of the pump, remove and check out thoroly and also check hoses coming to pump for little son of a gun articles that like to hide.

SOURCE: My admiral washing machine will not drain.

While you have it all apart, look into the pump. Does it appear to be clogged with anything? Does it appear to be intact? No broken blades or worn down parts? If it does not appear broken, put it back together. Leave the panel off and cycle the machine through all it's functions and see if the motor is running at all, you may have to fill it (use small load function) to get it to work unless you know how to bypass the water level switch (I will not tell you how as it would take too long). I'm not 100% sure on this but believe the pump works when motor goes one direction and the gear box works when motor runs the other (varies from machine to machine and I am not an appliance tech) and if your motor is not able to run both ways it will not pump out or spin either. You didn't mention spin so suspect it didn't get that far.

Pressure Switch failure - remove the hose at the top of the machine, and blow in it to clear moisture/buildup.
If not - replace the Pressure switch.


LD = LONG DRAIN



"F21" (AKA SD) is a Long (SLOW) Drain error (LD). If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385844-checking_drain_pump_kenmore_elite_front

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

I have a top laoder whirlpool8564990 it don´t spin well it leaves my clothes soaked and it goes to spinning cycle yet it don´t spin


From the information you have supplied, I suspect that the machine is not draining the water away,
1] Check that the drain pump is working (it would be easier to hear it running, before the machine starts the spin cycle, or if your machine has a "drain down" feature)
2] If the pump is running, stop the machine and unplug it from the mains power. Remove the machine drain tube from the point where it is plumbed into the household waste pipe, and lay it down into a bucket, or large pan and allow the water to drain down [ you should expect to get up to 2 gallons (10 Litres) of water from the machine]
Allow the water to drain down completely by holding the drain hose as low as possible into the bucket.
3] once the water has drained completely, remove the drain hose from the pump and check that the drain hose is not blocked.
4] If the hose was clear, and the pump was running (in tests [1] & [2] ), it will be necessary to check that the drain pump, and the main hose from the tub to the pump are clear of obstructions.
Remove any foreign objects, and re-assemble the hoses to the pump to the machine, and the drain hose to the domestic plumbing.

Plug the machine into the mains power, and and set the machine to run on the "last rinse" and "spin" cycles and test to see if the problem has been rectified.

I hope this helps cure your problem.

Not pumping out water


Most likely cause is a blocked drain hose. With water in machine try removing the drain hose from where it joins the house drainage (connection to waste under sink or pipe that is specifically for WM.) Put this in a bowl and lower bowl to floor. If water runs out the drain hose is not blocked, if no water runs then the hose is blocked. If water runs then the pump is either broken or blocked - when it should be pumping if it makes a noise then it is not broken.

To unblock the hose or pump - drain the water from the machine (there should be a small pipe hidden behind a front cover at the bottom of the machine put this in a bowl (it will be very slow.) Once drained you should be able to access the pump (it is really an impeller) this should have a screw on front, undo this and remove you should now be able to clean the pump housing. You can also check whether the hose is blocked by blowing down it or pouring water down it. If it is blocked then squeezing the corrugated part of the hose will free some of the blockage. Keep doing this until water can be poured down it. If you live in a hard water area then it would be worth while doing a very hot wash on a regular basis to removed undissolved soap from the machine.

Good Luck

My samsung top loader will only drain


Very easy repair. By dropping the hose gravity takes over allowing the water to run out. The buzzing noise is the propeller on your pump jammed.(Brawires,coins,hairpins) < common causes.. STEP 1:Drop hose down to remove water from machine STEP 2:Lean machine forward on a 45,rest machine on a chair. STEP 3:Bottom left of machine is a round black cap,remove the cap(turn anti clockwise) STEP 4: Put your fingers in the pump and pull out the coins,hairpins etc from pump. STEP 5:Turn propeller to make sure it turns freely,put the round cap back on then your done. Thanks

My pressure washer is a G 2500 oh n i have no pressure coming out, it turns on but no pressure.


Good news, your engine runs
But your pump may be bad

Here's how to test your pump
Check oil as outlined lower down
Disconnect the washer hose and gun
Connect water hose and turn on water and water should pass straight through the pump
Look for clogs in the hose-end where water hose connects to machine

Turn on machine and see if water shoots out pump
If water shoots out of pump, but no water shoots out of gun, then you may have a 'mud-dobber' wasp clog in your washer line or gun

Look for clogs in the end of each water connection.
Now connect washer hose without the gun, tun on the machine, and see if water shoots out of washer hose
Finally, the gun trigger mechanism may be bad
I don't know which gun you have ... but we replaced guns on our machine now-and-then ... google-search power washer guns for a replacement

Check your pump oil
Pump oil is SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil
Pump should be no more than 1/2 full of oil
Use plastic hose to drain pump oil
Do not turn machine on its side or turn machine over or engine oil will run into carburetor

Water running out of the tub through the drain hose


Hi,
The drain hose is either sitting in water with no air gap or the hose is not going up high enough...either way it is causing the water to siphon out of your machine...
The hose should go up higher then the highest water level and have an air gap where it goes into the drain pipe or it will not work..
