Make sure there is no water left in the machine.
Lean the machine back against the wall and look under the cabinet for the pump.
(If the machine has a metal plate at floor level, you will have use a flat screwdriver to unclip the plate from the plastic holders. There is no need to replace this plate.)
To remove the pump you will have to unclip the double wire plug. Rotate the pump to the left. Take note of the plastic latch which stops the pump from rotating.
Remove pump and unclip the earth wire.
Check the pump port for foreign objects.
Unscrew impeller and remove any lint.
Replace in reverse order.
HINT
Some water will run from the pump port, so a towel is handy to stop splashing and to prevent water going into the flywheel.
Good Luck....Nomess

No drain


You might need to remove the pump and verify that nothing is inside the pump itself. Check wire connection to pump. Check under the tub there is a 4" black hose that goes into the drain pump. Remove and clean, sometimes small clothes get caught in there.

Whirlpool Washing Machine won't drain after pump is cleaned and there are no blockages


see the causes and remedies:God bless you

Drain Pump Filter
This is the most common problem. Some have a small cover in the lower front put a screwdriver in the hole and turn counterclockwise to remove. There will be a cover to remove, water will come out so be prepared with a towel or wet vac. Clean this out. Other Machines will need to access the drain pump to get to the filter. This can be done by removing the back panel on some washers. On others you will need to remove the lower panel or complete front panel depending on model. The filter is located inside the large hose from the tub to the pump. Remove the hose and clean filter.

Drain Pump
The drain pump may have failed. If you hear it making noises you will need to remove the drain pump and check for obstructions, broken impeller, or not spinning freely. Remove obstructions if it does not spin freely replace the drain pump. If you hear it hum replace the pump if nothing is found inside. If no noise is heard check the pump for power. To do this remove the wire connectors and connect a voltmeter turn to a drain cycle, refer to tech sheet or service manual for proper voltage reading, usually any voltage would probally indicate a faulty pump. If no voltage to the pump replace the main control board.

Hoses
Check the hoses from the pump by disconnecting them and make sure there are no obstructions. Check your hoes drain, if it is a slow drain this can cause your washer to not properly drain.

It wont drain and we already removed front panel to see if something was clogged and there was debris in the drain but after removing it it still wont drain


If you cleaned the drain pump itself (on the bottom behind the lower front panel), and it did not help - the pump needs replacement.
By cleaning the pump itself I mean that cleaning the rubber hose from tub to pump and coin trap is usually not enough, you need to remove 3-5 screws, holding the pump together, and make sure the impeller is not blocked.
I am assuming here that there is power to the pump, and there is at least humming noise or light vibration when you touch it during the drain cycle.

Here is your pump. Coupon "New10" takes 10% off.

Need to replace water pump on a1997 chevy lumina 3.1L V6 need insructions


3.1L And 3.4L (VIN E) Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Partially drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
  3. Remove the drive belt guard.
  4. Loosen the water pump pulley bolts before removing the drive belt. This should help keep the pulley from turning as the bolts are loosened.
  5. Remove the drive belt. Please see Section 1.
  6. Remove the water pump pulley bolts and remove the pulley.
  7. Remove the water pump bolts and separate the pump from the engine front cover.
To install:

  1. Clean all parts well. Use care when scraping gasket material from the front cover and the pump. Do not gouge aluminum parts. Clean the bolt threads well. The torque specification is low and if the bolt threads are dirty, an accurate torque is not possible and leaks are likely to develop.
  2. Using a new gasket, install the water pump to the front cover. Install the cleaned and lightly lubricated water pump bolts. Torque to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  3. Install the water pump pulley and bolts and torque to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  4. Install the remaining components in the reverse order of the removal process. When refilling the cooling system, use the proper mix of DEX-COOL® and water. Check for leaks.

Beko dishwasher 3731 not draining out all the water


Check if the drain hose is free first, if the drain lines are notblocked, then there is need to remove the drain pump and clean the hosein there, or replace the pump.
To check the pump there is need to remove a panel held with screws, there the pump must be removed and cleaned, a lot of water willcome out when removing the pump.
The job should be done by a technician.
