There's a good possibility that the pump impeller or motor could have been damaged by whatever was clogging it up. It doesn't take much to break them. If the drain lines are clear, and you have verified no clogs between the drain tub and the pump (I have found wash clothes and socks stuck here before), then I would recommend a pump replacement. I'm assuming the electrical connection is good, since you stated that you could hear the pump running. If you need instructions on how to replace the pump you can use the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401845-replacing_drain_pump_whirlpool_duet

I know the symptom I listed is for a pump that is not running, but there are situations where the pump will continue to run, but still won't pump water.

To answer the next possible question...No, I don't think the motor is sold as a separate part. I did not see it listed that way. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your serial number, the part can be located as item number 10 (part # 8181684) under the "Pump and Motor Parts" heading. If you do not wish to purchase on line, use the part number provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Pump won't drain water and keeps faulting for pump cleaning. Have turned it off, unplugged pump filter, cleaned it and restarted it several times with no luck. What else could be wrong??


Check to see if there is a drain filter. My GE has a small "door" at the bottom of the machine that has a filter behind it. If so ALL of the water will drain when you open it so be prepared. Then clean all of the junk from inside the filter or "trap"

For Miele Dishwasher G2470SCVI Need help with remaining water in the bottom. Model# G2470 SCV1 SF Type-HG03. Runs through the entire cycle,long,short ect..everything is clean and dishes look great but


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump Although few dishwashers have a water pump belt, if the dishwasher won't drain there might be a worn or broken water pump belt. After removing the lower kick panel the motor can be seen in the front, the water pump belt is on the bottom of the motor.

Drain Pump If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain pump might be defective. Test the pump motor with an Ohm meter. Drain pumps are not repairable, if it's defective it will need to be replaced.

Drain Impeller The drain impeller is attached to the pump and pushes the water out of the dishwasher, through the drain tube and into the garbage disposer or drain line. If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain impeller might be broken or worn out. Replace both the impeller and seal at the same time.

Drain Solenoid Kit If the dishwasher won't drain, the drain solenoid kit might need to be replaced. The drain solenoid is an actuator that opens a flap to allow the water to drain.
Drain Valve The drain valve can get clogged with debris and should be cleaned out if the dishwasher won't drain. If it seems clear of debris but won't actuate, it will need to be replaced. The drain valve is not repairable.
Pump and Motor Assembly If the dishwasher won't drain, the pump and motor assembly might be defective. If the motor runs during the drain cycle, check for a blockage in the drain line. If the motor won't run during the drain cycle or if it just hums when it should be running, the pump and motor assembly might need to be replaced.

Clogged or Improperly Installed Garbage Disposer If the dishwasher won't drain and the garbage disposer was installed recently, the installer might have forgotten to knock out the drain plug from this disposer. All garbage disposers are sold with a solid plug in the drain tube for situations where a dishwasher isn't connected. However, if the dishwasher is connected, the plug will need to be removed. If the disposer wasn't replaced recently, remove the dishwasher drain hose from the disposer and clean out both the fitting on the disposer and the end of the drain hose. These are the most common places to find an obstruction if the dishwasher won't drain.

Drain Hose If the dishwasher won't drain the drain hose might be clogged. Remove the drain hose from both the dishwasher and the sink drain to clean it out. The most common place for an obstruction is at the garbage disposer.

Check Valve If the dishwasher won't drain the check valve might be stuck closed. The check valve is a small plastic device which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the valve gets stuck closed, it will prevent the water from draining. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher
Check Ball If the dishwasher won't drain the check ball might be stuck. The check ball is a small plastic ball in the check valve which prevents water from returning to the dishwasher after it has drained. If the ball gets stuck, it will prevent the water from draining also. The check valve is the device that the drain hose is attached to on the dishwasher.

Washer stoped flashing code f21


you have something stuck in the pump or a bad pump,remove the bottom cover,look at the pump and you'll see that the center has a grove in it so you can grab it and turn it counterclockwise to remove it but first with a shop vac vac out all the water in the tub then set up the vac down near the pump,turn the center of the pump until water start to leak out,vac it up until it's drained and then remove the center piece,clean it out,also stick your finger into the pump and feelaround to make sure nothing is in there or in the impellar,check the rubber boot of the hose,you can stick the vac in there to see if anything gets vacced out,put the piece back in tightly,add some water,put it on drain,if it drains you're done,if it doesn't check the pump again,if it's clear you need a new pump,those pumps are hard to kill so most likely your gonna find some lovely stuff in there,also the water stinks from the detergent so get ready for the stink,it's always like that.hope this helps,if your washer doesn't have the pump that the center part can be removed just pull off the hoses and clean out the pump and check the hoses for any junk cought up in there.good luck with your washer

Dishwasher won't drain when cycle is complete. Not even when press on the Cancel/Drain button. Engine starts working (at least sounds like something is going on) but not water goes out to the sink...


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

My washer will not spin, it sounds like it's trying to spin but it won't spin and if i turn the barrell by hand it spins so it's not frozen or anything. Any suggestions?


Hi mwilczewsk,

I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

After this, the Spin cycle will run, after the drainage procedure. If it does not, then you may need to replace the Drain Motor. Which is a easy task.

Kind Regards :-)

I cleaned the lint tray or catcher from the the front loader washing machine and the water still won't drain could the pump be out?


If there was a lot of junk in the catcher some of it may have moved to the drain hose.

Other than that, the drain pump is the most likely suspect here.

Ras8445 will not drain or go to spin cycle


If it washes ok but wont drain there could be something cought in the pump. It will not spin when full of water. If you take the drain hose and drop it into a pail and no water comes out chances are ther is something cought in the pump. To repair you have to remove the two hoses off the pump and remove what is cought in it.

Whining noise comming from parts turned by fan belt.


Auto Zone has a stethoscope designed to magnify sounds, buy one and explore/probe where the sounds are coming from. May be a bad bearing, water pump etc. (The water pump may still be pumping water but the bearing may be bad). Also...be weary of moving parts like the fan and belts and loose clothing!!!! Thar aren't forgiving if you get your clothes cought!!!!
