Question about Washing Machines

Washer issues I have a Whirlpool Design 2000 washer. the drain hose(inside machine)keeps popping off the drain part. I have replaced the clamp and while machine is filling and during wash there is no water leak but as soon as it starts draining you can hear the drain hose pop off and water starts flowing everywhere. any suggestions on what to do next?

    No, no other problems, I will check the hoses again more thoroughly this time for blockages. I have now flooded my kitchen 3 times so maybe it is blocked and I'm missing it I'm willing to try anything at this point. on the bright side my kitchen floor has never been cleaner =)

  • banderson76 Apr 02, 2008

    found the issue and the washer is now up and running again. it was actually a small piece of plastic like broken baby bottle top, completely flat about the size of a nickel, that whenever the machine would drain it would block the hose going into the wall causing the water to back up into the drain hose and cause it to pop off. I had checked that pipe earlier yesterday morning and didn't see it but I am happy to have found it. Thank you for all your help!!!!!

That doesnt sound right at all, no questioning you, your seeing it happen but as a whirlpool tech for MANY years thats not a normal complaint.
i assume its a top loading washer.
besides this issue have you had other problems????
did you replace pump??? reason i ask is perhaps you switched the pump outlet and inlet hoses( some models they are actually same size)
assuming they are in the respective openings, cant really see a reason as to why it would POP off unless theres a magor back pressure issue, have you checked the drainhose itself and looked for a possible blockage??
thats a pretty hardcore spring style cl;amp holding that on. make sure it pushed allthe way to the throat of pump assy

Do u have to replace the hold drain pump bracket if the black hose conected to the pump keeps falling off?


You do not need to replace the whole drain pump. The black drain hose is attached to the drain pump and secured with a hose clamp. If the clamp is not further down the drain hose, inside the unit on the base or has not fallen underneath the washer it can be replaced with a hose clamp from a hardware store. You will need the diameter of the hose to get the correct size. Rather than using a standard screwdriver to tighten the clamp a 1/4" or 5/16" nut driver or socket works much better. Make sure you unplug the appliance before working on it and have towels handy in case of water spills

My whirlpool washer is leaking from the front center. Happens during spin cycle I think.


Hello.

If your washing machine is leaking, don't rush out to buy a new one just yet. Sometimes simple repairs to the machine can fix the leaks saving you hundreds of dollars and days of shopping for and installing a new one. Luckily, you don't have to be a master electrician to do repairs. These steps will walk you through the basics of fixing a washing machine.
Bellow are Instructions on how to solve the problem of leaking washing machine

    • 1 Look at the floor drain to make sure it isn't clogged. Sometimes it's not even the washing machine, but the drain causing those puddles of water on the floor. Unclogging the drain can be an easy and quick fix.
    • 2 Inspect the hoses for leaks or wear and tear in certain spots. Filling the washing machine may help identify any leaks or faulty hoses. If hoses are worn, replace them with non-burst stainless steel mesh hoses.
    • 3 Check the fittings of the existing hoses to the faucet fixtures and on the back of the washing machine. Sometimes a loose connection is the cause for the leaks. Tighten couplings and hose clamps if necessary to fix the leaks.
    • 4 Replace internal washers inside of the hoses if not replacing the entire hose. Something as small as a rubber gasket can create a lot of water damage. Use a screwdriver to pop the worn washer out and replace it. Repeat replacing washers on the other end of the hose.
    • 5 Examine internal components by opening the cabinet and starting the fill cycle to see if anything is leaking internally. Calcium deposits and rust may be evident around areas that have leaks.
    • 6 Use hose clamp pliers to remove any corroded spring clamps and replace them with new ones. Make sure the hose is still intact underneath the old clamp. If not, remove the internal hose and take it to an appliance repair center to find the correct replacement part.
Thanks.

My washing machine will not go into the rinse cycle nor will it drain the water.


Does it run fine other than that? If so, your issue is most likely a clogged drain line or a bad water pump. Pull the drain hose off the back of the washer (being aware that if the line is NOT plugged, any water inside the machine will now be on your leg/wall/floor/cat etc). If no water comes out, the line is plugged. Take the case off the washer and remove the water pump (on whirlpool, take off two hose clamps and just pull. your mileage may vary). You should find the clog on the upstream side. Remove the clog, reassemble the washer, and try it.
If that doesn't work, your next attempt would be to replace the water pump. you already know how to do get it out, just reverse the steps with a new pump..
Did that get it?

Will not drain


im assumig that youve already had the machine tipped back and bottom cover removed, as you look at the pump there should be metal clamps securing it to the drain pump motor, you can release the clamps and the pump will release from the motor giving youbetter acess to the clamps..
BE WARNED if there water in the machine its comin out when you undo the clamp!!!! and if you need to order a new pump assy theyve since changed design and you must replace the drain pump/motor alltogether, not hard, but old pump no longer available

Whirlpool ultimate care II topload washing machine


Well I'm going to do my best to fix your washer. First unplug the washer and turn off the water. If you have a shop vac take the drain hose out of the drain,and through the drain hose vacuum the water out of your washer. If you don't have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps . Then facing the washer locate the two screws. They will either be in the front or rear of the control panel and back them out far as you can. Once you have done that pull the control panel slightly forward, and tilt it back on the hinges. Now unplug the lid switch wire but don't forget to plug it back when your done. Next locate at the rear of the washer body the two gold clips then push forward, and take careful note of how they fit. Then pop them out with a screw driver tilt the washer body forward at 45 degree angel and walk forward with the body, and set it down. Now you will see the white pump and motor assembly. You should see two clips holding the pump to the motor pop them off, and pull the pump off the motor shaft. Now if you fell the need to remove the pump use the radiator hose clamp. take them and clamp the hose coming from the tub but its not necessary for the repair. Next disconnect the wiring harness from the motor (note the position of the harness for reassembly). Remove the two 5/16 inch screws from the motor clamps and pop the clamps off. Once that is complete, remove the motor put the new coupling on the motor and transmission shaft. I use a socket and a hammer

ok you have an obstruction in your pump if you have a shop vacuum take the drain hose out of the drain and use the vac to pull the water out through the drain hose if not then go to auto parts store and get a radiator hose clamp pull the bottom panel off the washer and inside you will see a small motor with two hoses clamp the hose going up to the tub of the washer then if you had to clamp it put a towel in front and unscrew the front of the pump it will be plastic round and look like it has a square bar across it clean the filter look in the pump to make sure nothing is broken or jamming the impeller blades if the blades are broken then replace the pump if not then reassemble if you clamped it then remove clamp and tell everyone to check their pockets /chrissy9700 this doesn't apply to you
