You actually can run white vinegar through it or you can buy "Washer Magic" or a comparable product that cleans them out also.

Washer wont drain showin IE

Sonia, you either have a failed drain pump, or something has bypassed the filter ( bobby pins are notorious for this ) and is jamming up the pump impeller. If you can set the washer to drain/spin and can hear the pump running, you most likely have a impeller that has broken off of the pump motor shaft and will need to be replaced. If you cannot hear the pump running, and can hear a slight humming noise, then there is something jammed in the pump. The pump can be removed and cleared of the possible foriegn object. I can provide instructions on pump removal if needed.

Own a lg wm1832cw front load washer doesnt seem to clean properly when wearing tee shirts for an hour smells like they never were washed paid alot of money for this thing seems cheaper top load machines...


The smell usually comes when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Front loading washer, kenmore 417.42052100 won't completely drain and leaves a tub full of water. Has been getting worse over the last week and now won't drain at all. Took off front panel to try...

The drain filter/coin trap is blocked or the pump is no longer working. The filter/trap is located inside the big black hose that runs from the bottom of the tub to the pump and hence the name tub-to-pump hose. Clean the filter and inspect the pump impeller for damage or restriction.

Disconnect power then remove the screws attaching the bottom front panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off. Once the panel is off, you can now loosen the clamps securing the tub-to-pump hose to the bottom of the tub and the pump's inlet then take the hose out and clean the filter/trap.

You should find foreign objects such as coins, toothpicks, hairpins and the likes blocking the filter. Clear the filter from the foreign objects and inspect the pump impeller by turning it with your finger. The impeller may be restricted or damaged resulting in the water not being pumped out properly or none at all. Replace the pump if the impeller is broken or restricted and doesn't turn freely or if the pump is no longer operational. You can tell the pump is no longer operational if all are clean and the impeller is in good shape and turning freely. Reassemble the machine by following the steps above in reverse order.

When installing the filter in the coin trap, the top ring of the filter MUST be seated in the 3rd convolution from the bottom.

ND lites up

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

ND is No Drain. Check to see that the pump is running, the drain hose is NOT kinked or folded and that the filter is clean. If a garment made it into the sump it will block the pump inlet and washer with not drain.

The pump is Item 11 of this link:
You can access it from the rear access panel. First check to see that it running and then check to see that there is not any debris in the pump. Knowing your going to have to deal with a water mess when you remove hoses.... Remove the tub to pump hose and see if the the tub sump is clear. ( I use a sacrificed wire coat hanger! ) Use your finger to see if you can rotate the impeller freely. Then inspect the impeller area of the pump for any coins or debris... remove same.. re-install hoses and test. Just make sure that the pump to house drain hose is not kinked or clogged.

If the pump is not running perform a resistance check across the 2 motor connection terminals. No resistance = open pump motor winding.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Dishes don't come out clean grit feel to them

Not knowing the make and model of your dishwasher makes it hard to be specific. But, depending on its age, your problem may be debris blocking both the holes in the wash arms and the filter that is beneath the lower wash arm.

Inspect the wash arm holes and get them all cleaned out.

Remove the screws that hold what ever filter assembly that lives beneath the lower wash arm. Use a flashlight to inspect the entire sump area, looking for debris. Inspect the impeller down there, making sure it can spin freely and is not damaged

Reassemble and test. Run a short cycle empty and wait for the dishwasher to fill and begin to wash. Open the door and pour in up to 2 cups of white vinegar. When the DW drains, inspect the inside and see if you want to add more vinegar the next cycle _after_ the washer refills and begins to wash or rinse.

Run a load of dirty dishes and check for cleaning improvement. If you still have problems, the wash pump/motor assembly will need to be replaced.

Good Luck!

start by cleaning out the filter in bottom,
remove the access panel bottom 3 screws , open filter , some excess water will spill ,
clean it out,
next clean under the rubber flap around front of drum.
run borax through a cycle.
