It appears your pump has failed in this instance... or the inlet strainer is clogged TO the pump.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

How do i drain the washer for moving it


Mike,

I cannot tell whether you are talking about (1) the little bit of residual water in the machine after it's done, or (2) about a machine that's stopped mid-cycle with a good deal of water, so I'll respond to both cases.

(1) The lowest point in the washing machine is the drain outlet at the back to which the drain hose attaches. First remove the free end of the drain hose from the drain pipe and place it in a bucket sitting on the floor. That will get most of the water. Then place a towel on the floor and remove the other end of the drain hose from the machine. Remaining water will spill out from the outlet and hose onto the towel. You might get a little more if you lift the front of the machine, tilting it backward.

(2) If you can't drain the machine and it's full of water, you will need to siphon it. Take a piece of tubing, at least five feet long. You could use a piece of garden hose if you have nothing else. If you don't have a door or window nearby, you will need TWO buckets. Place the buckets on the floor in front of the machine. Place the siphon hose into the washer tub starting with one end to fill it with water. When it's completely in, cover one end, take it out, place it into a bucket. If the siphon doesn't automatically start, get down low on the floor, place the hose into your mouth and inhale. You may have to do this several times, possibly covering the tubing end with your tongue between inhalations. When the bucket is nearly full, switch the hose to the empty bucket and empty the first one. You will probably have several buckets of water. (Of course if your washing machine is near an outside door, you can simply start the siphon outside and omit the buckets.)

My dishwasher won't empty


This condition is commonly caused by:

- Drain pump jammed

When you wash your clothes, any small objects (e.g. hair pins, coins etc) are flushed down the drain pipe but often get jammed in the drain pumps impellar (this is the tiny propeller on the pump).

Firstly, place a bucket on the floor....then lower your drain hose (from your tub) into the bucket - the gravity will naturally drain the water into the bucket. Be careful to raise the hose and empty the bucket each time, until the machine is empty. Remove any wet clothes from machine (you will need the bowl to be emptied).

Once empty, you can now check the drain pump.

Turn the machin off at the power.

Locate the drain pump cover (usually near the drain hose, on the back or side). Place a large towel on the floor beneath the pump cover (as remaining water will escape onto the floor). Unscrew the drain pump cover and allow the water to drain (if your pump cover contains a filter, then clean everything from this filter).

Then, look inside the drain pump cavity for anything obstructing the little propeller (remove any objects). Insert your finger inside the cavity and rotate the little propeller - you should feel a resistance, similar to a rubber band.

Re-install the drain pump cover (or filter) and ensure it is sealed properly. Turn ON at the wall.

Fill your bucket with water (from tub) and pour into your machine.

Turn machine ON, and select the last SPIN (or drain) cycle and check if machine now drains correctly. If ok, then problem now solved and you can put the clothes back into the machine for a final rinse/spin.

If machine still not draining after inspecting the drain pump, then you may have a suspected faulty drain pump - a technician can run a diagnostic process on your machine's control pad to find the diagnostic codes.

Please do let me know, if the above process helps you solve this.

Cheers,

Is there a manual drain off point on this washing machine? it is filled with water,and no cycle will get rid of the water? usually there is a drain off hose at the bottom of washing machines,but there isnt...


If you had posted the name and model number, it would be easier, but I'll give it a shot. Where is the pump? (The drain outlet hose has to connect there.) Find the inlet fitting to the pump and take it off - the water will come out of there unless the pump inlet hose is clogged.

Are you sure the washer is actually running the spin cycle? If it isn't, it won't run the pump either (when mine skips through the spin cycle, I have to clean a contact in the timer). Check the pump belt to make sure it is good; maybe you don't have to drain the machine, unless you have to move it to work on it.

If you need to drain the washer before you can service it, procure a 7 foot (2 meter) length of hose, submerge it in the washer to get all of the air out, plug both ends with your thumbs, hold one end underwater and place the other end in a bucket on the floor. Release the ends to siphon out the water. Have a couple of buckets handy so you can drain the whole thing in one session.

Drain washer pump for winter


Turn off the water at the cold and hot taps. Disconnect the hoses from the taps and the washer and drain them. Lay the drain hose flat on the floor to drain it to a container. With the hoses disconnected and the drain hose flat, start the fill cycle (set to WARM) briefly (15 seconds) to open the inlet solenoid valves and allow water to drain from them. Start the rinse cycle to pump any residual water out of the tub and drain (15 seconds).
OR
Turn off water and disconnect inlet hoses as described above. Pour 1 gallon of RV anti-freeze (for potable water systems) into the tub. Start the rinse cycle just enough to start the drain so antifreeze goes through pump and into drain hose. Before using the washer again, run a small rinse through to flush out the anti-freeze.

What is the best way to winterize a standard large capacity washing machine?


If the product will be exposed to sub-freezing temperatures, turn off the water supply to washer, disconnect fill hoses, drain them and reconnect. Remove the drain hose from the standpipe in the wall and place it into a shallow pan at floor level untill the water floe stops. Unplug unit and you are good to go.

If no sub-freezing temps are expected, turn off water supply. Turn on washer for a warm wash cycle for a few seconds to relieve the pressure in the hoses. Turn off machine and unplug it.

My kemore dishwasher is holding water after the cycle is over.


Usually it is due to poor draining ie. garbage disposal clogging etc... If it connected to the garbage disposal get a bucket, disconnect drain hose and run rinse and hold drain line over bucket to see if it is draining at all. It should drain completely if it is showing it is trying to drain it is a blockage in the pump underneath. but try the hose first and go from there.
