I replaced drain pump due to broken vanes, now washer will not rinse

I replaced the drain pump on my washer with a redesigned pump (original design no longer available according to various sources) due to debris ($3.75 in change) getting sucked in it and breaking off the impeller vanes, but now the timer runs to the end of the wash cycle, drains the tub and just stops and buzzes, won't advance into rinse cycle. Did I miss something in the pump replacement or do I now have a bad timer?? Any help is Greatly appreciated!

    Glad I didn't listen to this - another site suggested I start with the "basics" of diagnosis and I found that, unbeknownst to me, my helper had turned the cold water off at the wall and the reason the timer wouldn't advance was because 3 of the 4 temp settings rinse with cold water only so the water level never got high enough for the cycle to continue.

    in the inital post dan says that the machine drained he did not say that the water in the washer was hot only since his helper turned off the cold water

    should have been clearer on the full problem in his post

    a timer can buzz

    a water valve can to if the valve is turned off

Loud and noisy when the wash cycle starts.


Slide the unit out from the wall and open the small access panel on the back, bottom left side. 98% of the noise problems from this model is do to the bad design on the drain pump which has since been redesigned and will need to be replaced. Here is the new pump.
This washer pump has been redesigned by the manufacture. The mounting plate is no longer required. It now mounts directly to the base of the washer.

FRIGDAIRE WASHER FRONT LOAD MODEL#GLTF1240ASO DOES NOT GO TO HIGH SPIN . A CHECKED DRAIN PUMP REPLACED DOOR SWITCH AND REPLACED SPEED CONTROL CHECKED BELT


Hi, are you sure your pump is operating properly any little thing caught in the impeller will stop these pumps. You also say there water still in the tub it will definitely not spin fast with water in the tub. Remove the pump and inspect the impeller sometimes there are things caught in it and other times the vanes are broken right off.

Washer will not drain totally when in final rinse mode.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Washer not draining completely problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose or the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. If the problem returns after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Small amount of water now left in drain - it was never there prior to a replacment of pump that failed. Is this normal? White powedery residue has now appeared for the first time.


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

This is a common complaint following a drain pump change out, particularly when one has an older Bosch and installing the new style/revised outlet pumps.

If you still have your old pump or if you recall observing it, that design usually only had 4 vanes on the impeller to pump the water.

Since then however, Bosch has re-designed their drain pumps to allow them to be "quieter" hence they now have either a 6 or 9 vane ( depending on model ) on the pump impeller, so yes they are much quieter but as a result pump less water in the time allowed.

example...

f12cc20.jpg

...So to answer your question it likely is normal and should be of little consequence. but if you`d like you can still get the other style, you just need to know what to ask for but is quite often "special order". Part # 184178.

NOTE - If you live in the Northwest region of the states ( Especially Washington ) often installation for dishwashers include what is know as a "Johnson Tee" air gaps in the wall.
**Johnson Tees were designed for older dishwashers with 1/2” drain
tubing and work better with stronger 4-vane drain pumps (# 184178) instead of
the current quieter 6-vane pumps (# 167082). In homes with Johnson Tees, use
only 4-vane drain pumps (# 184178).**

Hope that helps, let me know if I can assist you further and good luck.

Washer won't drain and go to spin cycle. Stops at rinse. model LXR7133JG1


Hi,

Although all brands are different in design, the basic concept is the same. Water comes in at the top, and goes out at the bottom. A pump forces the water to go in a particular direction. When a machine won't drain, there are several things to consider:

* Is the drain hose kinked?

* Does the lid switch click when closing?

* Something in the pump or hoses? Check the hose coming down from the tub for socks, rags, etc.

* Bad wigwag?

* Broken belt? Broken drive coupling?
* Current to motor? (Use voltmeter to check)

Won't spin after wash cycle or rinse cycle


CHECK THE FOLLOWING---


1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Whirlpool Calypso washing machine keeps saying LD and will not complete its cycle. I have the motor replaced several time and I am hoping that it is not bad.....AGAIN.


LD - Long Drain - as when the pump is not running (jammed or clogged with debris, socks, or draw strings!) or when it has failed. Make sure, if you are having someone replace the pump motor, that they upgrade it with the redesigned motor that has the impeller and motor in a single part which cannot be separated. The original design was 2 parts and was a metal motor shaft into a plastic impeller socket that would strip when the impeller got jammed. There are several companies which sell the new design and for a small extra fee you can get a lifetime warranty on the pump assembly. Google for it.

Drain pump


You may have a problem with the pump vane not properly spinning on the drain pump shaft.  If you take out the drain pump and spin the vane in either direction, you should feel a resistance every time you turn it.  If you able to turn the vane one way and do not feel the resistance for at least half a turn, you may need to replace the drain pump.
