Hi.

The most common cause for the problem is a defective pressure switch. The pressure switch is used by electronic control to detect water level and stop the drain pump. If the switch is defective, the pump may stop too early.

See full troubleshooting here: My washing machine does not drain.

Regards.

Speed Queen, cleared clog in pump, still won't drain


The clog may have moved from the pump to the drain line. If the pump overflows, it would make sense to check the drain line to determine whether it is restricted. The drain line is usually clamped onto the pump outlet and can be disconnected by removing the clamp. You can insert a piece of wire or a drain auger and confirm the state of the line. Doing this may prevent an unneeded pump replacement

DISHWASHER IS NOT DRAINING COMPLETELY, LEAVING ABOUT 2 IN OF WATER


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

GE dishwasher GSD2230 won't drain completely after it completes entire cycle.


Hi



Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.

Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat.

My washer will not drain completely. It drains, but still leaves clothes with more water than usual


Check for a kinked or clogged drain line. The hose can be removed from the pump and the pump can be checked for clogs. Take a flashlight and look into the suction port of the pump and look for any obstructions (like the occasional stray sock, for example). Also check the pump impeller for broken or missing blades and ensure that the impeller spins freely. If not, the pump is defective. Hope this helped and best wishes.
