Loud smeg spin cycle


Open the loading door and place your hand at the top of the inner tub, close to the door opening and lift slightly. Inner and outer tub should move as one solid unit. If there is play between inner and outer tubs, you likely have a tub bearing issue. That is bad news, but repairable if you have the ability to DIY.
If the tubs seem good, then look for a sock between the inner and outer tubs. Often it is in the upper left corner (but could be anywhere) close to the door opening so that you can grab it with your hand or needlenose pliers. If you give the tub a spin you may be able to locate it by sight and feel, or with a flashlight from inside the tub through the drain holes. Also look for an object that may be stuck in one of those drain holes, like a screw, etc. Let me know if this is no help, we will look for other causes.

My indesit washing vibrates when it is spinning why?


If it is a front loading machine:
If you lift on the inner tub from the inside of it the outer tub should raise with it. They should feel pretty solidly like one unit. If there is a sloppiness to it at all the tub bearings are shot or the Spider bracket is busted.
If the inner and outer tub feel solidly together look for a sock between the inner and outer tub. They can roll and twist up and cause real havoc.

If it's a top loading machine:
Check for wiggle of inner and outer tub. If no wiggle check for sock as above.

Let me know.

Machine will not drain


If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

Washer does not drain after rinse cycle


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Usually water not draining at all is due to the drain line that is clogged and/or because of kinked drain hoses that’s attached to the Drain Pump. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. If you think that this isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools—then you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

ALL THE WATER WANT SPIN OUT OF THE CLOTHES


Chances are, lint or some piece of clothing (a sock or handerchief, maybe an iron-on patch came loose) is clogging the drain hose. Remove the drain hose and see if it is clogged. Perhaps, running a straightened-out clothes hanger through the hose will dislodge the obstruction. Also, check the drain from the tub to the hose attachment point. To do this, you will need to remove the inner (perforated) tub from the outer (solid) tub. You see, only the inner tub spins. The water is spun-out by centrifical force and flows from that outer (stationary) tub through a pump, and from there to the drain hose. Good luck.

Put in new drain pump still won't drain


Something is blocking water from tub to pump? Did you check that? socks and other small items get over the side of the inner tub and down to the outer tub drain hole.
You don't say if the pump is belt driven or has its own electric motor. If the latter, is it getting power during the beginning of the Spin cycle?
