There are several reasons that a washing machine won't drain or spin. The cause could be something as easy as a clog or something difficult that will need a licensed repairman. Start with the simplest possible cause and work down to the more difficult causes.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Tools Needed

  • Screwdrivers,Flashlight,Voltmeter,Wrenches,Bucket,Rags or mo.
  1. A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.
  2. If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.
  3. Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.
  4. Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.
  5. If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman. Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall
Hope this help?

Does everything but drain

Look for a blockage or a kink in the drain hose.

Some washers will also have a valve and pump on the drain line independent of the main drive. Due to high vibration of the washer, it is not uncommon for wires to come off here.

Checking the drain hose for kinds is easy, just have to look at it and see if there are any sharp bends and such. To do the rest, you are going to have to drain it using expedient methods. Try taping a garden hose to the end of the drain hose, roll the garden hose outside. Lower the drain hose to the floor. If the washer starts to drain with a pretty good flow (washer should be turned off at this point), then you likely don't have a valve on the drain, but the pump isn't working for whatever reason. Let the washer drain as much as it will, remove clothing, and turn the washer over onto its front side.

Remove the bottom cover (if present), and follow the drain line back to the pump assembly. If you have a pump near the drain connection, check its wiring (unplug first) to make sure everything is tight. If the drain line goes to a pump that is driven off the main motor, then the impeller is damaged or coupler is broken.

Most washers will drive the water pump off the same motor that turns everything else. To avoid draining during wash cycle, the main motor will turn in reverse to engage the water pump. If the coupler is damaged, it is able to still run through cycles normally, but can't turn the water pump. The opposite is also true, if it is able to drain, but can't spin or agitate.

Washer does not drain after rinse cycle


Thanks for using FixYa. Usually water not draining at all is due to the drain line that is clogged and/or because of kinked drain hoses that’s attached to the Drain Pump. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. If you think that this isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools—then you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

My GE Profile washing machine will not drain at all , it washes fine but does not drain Model # S3200YIWW

It possible something is jamming pump impellor, like a coin or hair pin, or pump itself is seized, or impeller is broken or loose.
Remove front panel, there are two clips in between front panel and top that you have to push in with metal putty blade or thin slot screw driver while pulling front panel away on either then pull up from bottom clips. Shop vac water from machine clamp off hose going from tub to pump.
Lean machine back if poosible so remaining water goes to back of tub, remove hoses, remove wiring to pump.
Unscrew pump from base observe inside ports for objects or broken or seized impeller on shaft if there things in pump remove them reatach wires put machine to drain or cancel and see if pump impellor turns freely, if so reassemble and try, otherwise buy new pump. Not very expensive.

Hope helped.

Dishwasher stops after 10 minutes inlet/drain light flashing

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).
