Water not draining

I ran a load of clothes the other day and later checked on it to find it at the end of the cycle with water in the unit. I opened up the bottom panel to find the belt had broken.

I replaced the belt last night and ran it through another cycle to find out that it does not drain the water during the spin cycle. It starts spinning fast with water in it and does not drain the water out the release hose.

I took the hose completely out and made sure it was 100% clear by putting a wet/dry vacuum on it. I also hooked the vacuum up to the pump to make sure nothing was impeding its flow.

I started another cycle and it still began to spin and not drain. I lowered the release hose and the water began to drain.

Does this sound like the pump is going out or perhaps a switch is not triggering the pump to drain the water? How do I check this?

Thanks!

    It appears when the belt broke it damaged the input on the pump because it is entirely stripped out. There is not slot in it whatsoever... just a round stripped out opening. Must be the problem right?

The belt may have failed due to the pump seizing up.
Remove the belt and turn the pump with your hand. If the pump seems hard to turn (should turn freely) replace the pump.

    You could be correct. The pump has probably failed.

How do I fix a washing machine that doesn't fill with water, but spins and drains? Water enters the detergent holder, but doesn't seem to make it to the tub. Draining can be heard as well, even though


Seems like there should be a pump or sending unit the would be controlled by the cycle timer. ProbAbly went bad. Hopefully you got the extended warranty?

My clothes are still to wet after spin cycle..GE WKSE5260E. What is causing this?


you may have a pump not working correctly or the spin cycle is not coming up to proper speed or a control board failing .
1st off lets look at the unit after you have ran a load are the clothes still wet or damp ?
so lets check the water with out a load of clothes in it and lets see what happens when it goes to a drain cycle and i think your machine should have a rinse and drain cycle ? does it pump the water out quickly . im betting it does not at the bottom there is a access panel for service behind this door you will find a pump with a clean out filter after making sure you have as much water out of the unit and before you take the filter out of the pump . be sure to have some towels and a bucket as there will be water that will come out of the outer tub and it will end up on your floor . after you have gotten this far check the filter and see what may be in it pens coins socks lots of things end up there when pockets do not get cleaned out .and a pump could also be failing .
if you still have the problem you may want to consider calling your local servicer to take care of the matter

Haier xqg50 will not dry; It runs the full wash cycle, and will actually run the dry cycle, but the clothes come out comletely soaked. Ran the full 120 minute dry cycle three times, and the clothes were...


The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Amana nav5800aww water on floor after spin cycle


Sounds very similar to having something such as a sock or small article of clothing that is too large to be sucked down the drain hose into the pump. So what happens is it hangs around between the inner and outer drums and sometimes gets itself lodged over the drum drain hole, and can allow water to be centrifically flung over the top of the drum. Most times when the spin cycle stops, the article of clothing will dislodge and float around inside the drum only to do it again later....
If you can remove the top of the machine, you can usually see the gap between the two drums and use a piece of coathanger wire with a small hook on the end and "go fishing in the area between the two drums and close to the drain hole location... bet you'll find something in there... Let me know how it goes... and if I can help .. ken

Can't Open the Washer Door---Our Clothes are held Hoatage


Check and ensure that the tubes and passages to the water level pressure sensor are not blocked by caked detergent, lint , etc.
( this may have caused the water overflow in the first place)
clean up the internal parts that are wetted by the overflow.

clean the door lock mechanism. ( this normally works on a temperature delay mechanism, if cleaning does not work, replace)

all the above done with the power unplugged and water inlets unplugged , of course
