Usually the impeller blade on the water pump is impeded; stopped from turning. Coins, favourite is hair clips, etc.
UNPLUG THE MACHINE FROM THE MAINS.

Undo the flap; bottom right, drain water out through small plastic tube..you can yank about a foot of it out (curled up inside) when drained, you're going to get some spillage have a cloth ready.

Undo the big threaded bung (anti-clockwise) some water don't worry... you will see the impeller up at the end of the channel the bung came from; you should see two blades and any obstruction stopping blades from turning...

Hook whatever out with your finger, spin the blades for full rotations; check inlet and outlet; up by the impeller, make sure the holes are clear as far as you can feel with your finger tip. you're DONE.

Shove the little plastic tube back into it's hole and locate the end in it's retainer.; put the bug back in (clock-wise).

My miele wt945s takes in some water after final spin so clothes at bottom of the drum end up wet. Can I stop this happening


There is a problem with the programming of the control board if this is occurring.

All you can do is turn off the water to the machine at the end of the full cycle and then run the spin cycle again to dry out the clothes. Then no water can enter the wash drum.

Otherwise you would need to turn off the water each time before the spin cycle concluded and thus before the machine began adding water again.

My washer is not spinning clothes dry and the end of the cycle. Everything is soaking wet, what can I do?


is the pump free to spin? when the pump operates(when it spins) is the water getting out? something like a sock may have got past the drum into pipe that joins to pump allowing only some water to escape

Its spinning but the water is not draining away and the clothes are still wringing wet


This usually indicated a problem with the pump. There is a belt which turns the agitator, spins the drum, and turns the pump, which is what removes the water. Since the agitator works and the drum spins, the pump is probably faulty.

I have a WSXH208 ge front loader It started to fill was and then in the middle the water pumped out but did not finish and clothes were sopping wet, Drum stopped spinning. what could be wrong


all front loaders will not go into high spped spin if there is water in the tub.You should first remove the bottom panel and check the water pump for blockage.Some units have a sscrew style filter to catch debris befor it enters the pump impellor.when you unscrew the filter make sure you have a wet vac handy.

LG WD12020D Inverter Direct Drive 7.5kg front loader. Has never had visible water level in the drum. I have even stopped the machine, turned off the power, waited for the door to unlock, pushed the wet...


No water that high. But you may have an extra water button that allows you to add slightly more water to each wash load. Water should be just above bottom of inside drum in the back of the drum as it rotates

Whirlpool Duet 9150.. should I be able to see water in the tub when it is washing? There is no visible water level. The clothes are wet but how do they get clean?


water is drawn THROUGH the clothes. There is a BIT of water in the drum - however the water sprays on the clothes during the wash cycle and draws the dirt/water/detergent THROUGH the clothes.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II does not completely drain.


Mine will do this if clothes are left in it for a long period of time. The pump will not drain all water out because the will dry out the seals if they do. Your wet clothes dripped in the tub raising the water level to the bottom of the drum and that is why you have wet clothes. Remove clothes as soon as they are done, use cycle signal to avoid this.

Affinity Front load washer will not spin out clothes


It could be the pump--and specifically the motor for the pump. The reason there is no water left in the drum is because there is a bypass for the extraneous water left in the drum at spin cycle. The pump then draws out the additional water. I'd check the pump line and assembly first, using the information found here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t289401-error_code_20. I had the same problem as you shortly before I started getting the error code 20, and you'll see how I (and others) solved it. I recommend trying the shortcut Keith_Mann offers and if the white basket has not gotten forced into the central pump chamber as it did with mine.

If there is no clog in the pump or drain line, the problem is likely the actual motor of the pump. I'd recommend troubleshooting it by leaving the back panel off, then taking a towel you've thoroughly wetted down and placing it in the drum and setting your machine to spin. Make sure the washing machine is still turned around so you can see the back assembly. Crouch down and watch to see/hear if the pump motor is activating. If not, you'll have to call a repairman to have it replaced.

Good luck. Hope you can fix it yourself!
