Most newer machines and a lot of older ones have a removable filter on the front of the machine. Some have a small hinged door others you have to remove the bottom trim on the machine to access it. Once you have screwed out the filter and removed it you can usually see the impellor which is a cross shaped plastic piece about 2 inch's across and down. Check to see if it moves freely or if there's something jamming it.Only other way is to remove the pump from it's housing, it's usually held in by 3 screws, sometimes phillips sometimes torx head screws. Once you've removed the screws the motor will just pull off. You can usually do this by just leaning the machine back so you can get at the under side of it. Be sure when you refit the pump it goes back in the same position and that the rubber o ring locates properly..

Washer wont drain or spin


Sounds like the problem may be a blocked pump. First , check there is no debris in the drain hose( easy to take off rear bottom of machine. If clear ,check the pump where drain hose was attached and see if the little fan moves freely with your fingers( impellor). This part may have something wound around it or may be jammed by a blockage of some kind. This is pretty simple to do and if there is still no movement of the impellor ,a new pump may be necessary.

Indesit iwe8123 not spinning


Its an old belief that the motor is at fault when a machine doesnt spin on full speed.
Most of the time its because its not emptying properly. Firstly check the filter for any blockages and if thats clear unplug the machine and tilt it over so you can see the pump. If your not sure which is the pump then follow the drain pipe in from the back and what that connects to is the pump. You will have to remove the pipes from that and make sure they are clear and also the pump if possible. If thats all good then it may be a carbon brush problem in your motor thats at fault. That is an easy job even for a novice. If you get no joy with the pump then let me know and i'll talk you through that too.

My washing machine won't spin or drain the water. It washes then there's a hum from the motor but it won't progress. There's no reset button to press; I've tried changing the cycle; turning machine off;...


The pump has a blockage that is stopping the impellor from spinning, hence the hum and not emptying. You need to gain access to the pump and remove the item, usually I find hair ties or plastic lolly sticks have worked their way in there.

Different types of machine require different methods to do this, so provide the make/model and further help may be provided.

Water not emptying out, spin hold light not working, door locked and program end lights both on


maybe pump is clogged up or faulty or timer is not advancing....... To get the door open try a manual drain, pull out machine and lower the waste hose into a basin as low as you can. after that should enable you to open the door give it a minute tho....

Started making loud "clicking" noise


Blocked pump, open flap bottom right, drain off excess water manually and remove pump filter. Make sure you get right down and have a look in at the impellor and give it a turn to make sure its free to rotate. You'll probably find a coin, button etc that is catching the pump impellor. When you start a cycle the pump engages for a few seconds and then the w/m takes in water, so if something is stopping the impellor rotating the w/m will not start.
Best of luck

Hose connected to pump blocked, now clean but machine still not emptying or spinning.


Make sure that you can actually see or hear the pump working.
If it is, then could be a blockage in the hose from the pump to the waste discharge outlet.
The other possibility is that although the pump may appear to be working,it could be the impellor is loose or worn in the pump.
Hope this helps.

the hose coming from tub to the pump has a filter in it.you need to pull filter out and empty it.E20 means that you have a slow drain,or clog.If the pump is noisier than ussual then you may need to replace pump.but check filter first.

Front load whirlpool AWM285/3 washer won't drain or spin


I would suspect that there is a blockage possibly in the pump itself, or the outlet hose from the pump, the other possibility is that the impellor inside the pump is worn or being slowed down by something twisted round the impellor..
If you can establish that there is no blockage any were, then I would change the pump.
Plz rate my solution.Thanks.

Not emptying


what that signals is the impellor on the end of the pump is jammed or loose. Check to make sure it is free.

not only check filter but when filter out check for foreign objects fouling pump impellor. (bra wires are the favourite) if pump impellor not visible, then put onto drain and listen for a low humming noise in vicinity of pump. this confirms that pump is powered but jammed. all you can do after that is to check continuity of pump and check there is power to pump when on drain - assumes you have a multimeter
