Hello first thing to do is check the drain hose make sure it's not blocked you will find the pump usually at the front right hand corner underneath the washer if not there try the left hand corner at the back good luck

Tub not draining in washer


If it won't drain, something is plugging the drain system. Start from the hose end. Make sure the hose is open at the end. Try lowering the hose to almost floor level. Make sure you have a pail handy. The water from the tub will be higher than the hose end and the blockage might come squirting out. Put the hose back into the sink or drain pipe it was in.
If water comes out of the hose, but the washer still doesn't "drain," turn it on to a point in the cycle where it should be draining (spin cycle). Listen to hear if the pump is running. If it isn't, there might be something caught in the pump, the pump impellers (that push the water through the pump) might be stuck or broken. This will require a service person.
A third thing you can try if you feel really handy, is to figure out how to open the top of the washer. (Do this with the washer unplugged.) This is often a couple of spring clips near the front edge. Push in on these clips with a putty knife or something else thin, while lifting the top. Once you get it open, scoop out the water between the tubs if you want to. Other wise reach in between the tubs and find the drain hole where the water leaves the outer tub. This happened to me once and there was a child's sock in the hole. Pull out the blockage, reassemble the washer, plug it in and see if the pump check works.
Like I said, it's the outer tub, the pump or the drain hose usually. Good luck.

My whirlpool duet washer will not move forward with the cycle and will not allow me to open door. I have tried the pause/cancel button and depressing the end of cycle button on front. nothing so far,...


Assuming that you mean the washer stops at the spin cycle and door remains locked, then thats normal safety precaution when tub has water in it. If the drain pump is bad or restricted this could be a reason for this happening. You can get the door opened by taking off the bottom front portion of the washer also known as a kickplate. Once this is done with the machine unplugged you can reach up on the right side an there usually is a plastic tab that you pull that will release the door catch. While your down there you can check the drain pump, located in the front center of the machine. On most of the front load the pumps have a center piece facing forwad that you can twist to the left to unscrew and remove any debris that could be blocking water flow. If this is the case you still may need to replace the drain pump depending on how long somethings been in the pump. Hope this helps.

Door will not open


typical problem for front load washer is that it stops when it comes to a rinse or spin cycle.there is something blocking the drain pump.in order to drain all the water out of the washer the best way is to use a wet dry shop vac.
attach the vaccum to the end of the drain hose and remove all the water.
once the water is removed the door should unlock.then you can access the drain pump from either the front or rear panel depending on the model you have.some models will have a access panel on the front to check to drain pump however if you do not see anything in the pump.
then the obstruction is in the part of the drain hose that leads from the bottom of the tub into the drain pump.if there is no obstruction found then you need to check the wiring and make sure it is securely attach.
last thing when all else fails replace the drain pump

Either pump is bad or something is blocking it. Did you pull filter at bottom left corner and clean it out? Look inside make sure nothing is in there.

Maytag washer MAH 5500bww seems to run OK, but it does not pump out all the water(pumps out some) at the end of the cycles, churns remaining water during spin


Open the rear panel and remove the drain pump and clean it.
If there is nothing in the pump, check the drain motor for 18 ohms with a volt/ohm meter.
Not 18 ohms, replace the motor.

If you are saying that after the washer has finished you are left with wet cloths and water left standing in the tub ,then your pump is broken or as was my case I opened the back and removed the pump only to find a small piece of wicker that had come off my laundry basket . It was keeping the pump from turning .I removed it put everything back in place and saved over $380.00 . I hope this helps good luck .

Message: drainage blocked


scgawlik,
Happy to assist you,


You said,
The pipe in the back is not clogged, it is wide open. When we removed the cover for the pump in the front and open the valve, the water obviously drains out. However, when you put it back together and try to run it, it will go through a cycle and when it gets near the end of the cycle that when the message appears drainage blocked and won't drain.


The electronic type washers , can be unplugged and after 5 minutes restarted and the system is then rebooted. This resets the system and clears the codes !

If the drain is not blocked then you have a faulty sensor or a bad pump
