I washed a rug and some of the backing came off. Now it won't drain. Help!!!!


Hello.

Solution below.

If your washer is indeed a WFL2066, than the not spinning is directly relatedto the unit not draining.

These machines by design cannot spin if the drain is inadequate.

Here is the first step in resolving the problem, you need to access the drainpump/filter to clean it.

To reach the filter and clean it...

**Unplug the washer from the dryer or wall, or turn off the 30amp breakerat the home service panel...safety first**

1) Open the small square plastic door at the right bottom of thewasher.

2) Via the small hose drain any access water from the pump...this is where awet/dry shop-vac comes in handy, or a shallow pan with a few towels works aswell.

3) Then turn the pump insert/button trap counter clock-wise and pull out.Clean the trap out thoroughly running it under hot water and mild soap or yourwasher detergent and inspect inside the pump for any other foreignobjects/obstructions.

4) Re-install the lint trap insuring it is good and snug/tight. Beforeclosing up the small access door, run a short rinse spin cycle to check forleaks.

Let me know how you make out, or if you require further assistance.

Wfmc3200uc101 bosch washer doesnot spin out when a single sweater is in. the drum turns but not at full speed


i have the same problem, what i find helps put a bed sheet in with the sweater to even the load, ( I keep a sheet by the washer for this specifically) and take it off max. spin cycle for the small load (I know this sounds stupid) I have a bosch also and I have problems with small blankets too. This usually helps, but I found that if i do this under the 25 minute quick wash instead of the regular wash it doesn't spin out either, kind of stupid to run a machine with only one sweater for 58 minutes, I would never buy a front loader again, betty

My washing machine wont empty or spin it was working the other day and i put a small rug in it that went heavy when it was wet and it stopped working it is a centrex 7 kilo


You drain pump may be full of the rug stuff you will need to open the washer and the remove drain hose to remove what is stuck in the pump.... I have used a shop wet/dry vaccum put on the drain hose to remove stuff... but it will not always work...

good luck

I just need help. I do not want to pay anything to have this question answered. I paid $1,200 for these two new appliances less than 45 days ago! I thought this site was connected with GE. Apparently not.

Washer not fully draining, even with extra drain/spin cycle...


Hi easterbunch;
Im sorry to have to tell you but that is one of the inherant faults of the duet line of machines. It is a safety guard that the machine sences as a unevenly distributed load, and prevents the unit from spinning up to full rpm's The next time you need to do a small load throw a bath towel or two in with it and you wonrt have any problems with it spinning up to full speed.
Hope this helps :-)

Not going into high spin with any weight in it


I have had the same problem with my front loader. The rug is too heavy and the drum isn't balanced. Try adding more items to the wash and it will spin.

WILL NOT SPIN ON HIGH


The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; if the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub (plug off the wall first before doing all these things). Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.
The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground
