My machine seams to go slow with a light load 500mb h/duty


500mb from memory was a Hoover top loader ??? It could be just the belt slipping underneath, but also have a look inside the drain pump hoses for blockages. These were notorious for blocking with coins and other foreign objects. . If the machine couldnt pump out properly, when it went onto spin, it would only go very slow as the machine wasnt able to build up any speed with a full load of clothes and water.

When draining the water from the drum, the pump sounds lime it is cavitation or surging. The cloths are also not as dry as they should be when coming out of the washer.


Sounds like there may be something obstructing the flow of water either inside the pump or from the pump to the drain hose. It requires disassembly. To access the pump, remove the 4 door screws that secure it to the frame and remove the frame, of course, remove plug first. The pump is located in the right mid rear section and has hoses and a water level switche attached to it. if you have a big towel, place it around the pump to capture the water and remove the clamps securing the hoses to see if there is anything in there. If not remove the drain hose and run a snake through it to see if there is an obstruction there. If not, you may need a new pump,.

Water leaking from underneath machine


Open the top table. Check water inlet hose for damage or tear at the connecting places.

Pour water in the wash drum externally from from front side and see whether leak is present. If leaks, drum is having problem or the drain hose damaged before the drain valve end.

Remove hose at washer connection and check screen filter not blocked with grit from pipes. Check screen at tap end also. If both clear, machine may need water valve replaced.

Water goes down into washer, but does not seem to


Well if this is a front loading GE and it has a pump similar to the Frigidaire Models (who knows who makes what for whom) there is a check valve that closes on the pump where the hose connects to the drain hose if this has fallen apart or off the pump will allow the water to drain into the hose rather than staying in the wash tub without knowing the model number it is difficult to be certain of this. If yours has the small access panel on the front with two screws at the bottom most likely the pump check flap (small piece of rubber on the pump outlet) is probably shot. Only other thing is to make sure the drain hose has not changed position and causing siphoning of the wash tub.

Black marks on clothes


I had a similar problem. We has placed the waste water hose into an old tub next the machine. The plug hole int he sink has become blocked with lint. When the washing maching was pumping water into the tub, the tub would fill with water, which would rise a level higher than the washing machine waste hose. What this appeared to do was cause the machine not to be able to properly pump out water, leaving this horrible back stuff in the wash which would end up all over the wash. Ensuring the plub hole in the tub was clear solved the problem immediately!
