Question about Washing Machines
My roommate did a load of towels and when it went to drain it didn't do anything the cycle kept running through but the water didn't drain. What could be causing this?
If the drain pump is running then maybe the filter - usually at the front bottom of the machine - might need cleaned. The pump impellor is usually just behing the filter so it might be jammed with a sock or something that has escaped from the inner drum into the outer one.
How to get the water out? Well, first disconnect the power, get access to the back of the machine, find the end of the drain hose where it goes into the buildings drain system and place the end in a bucket to cath any water that may come out. Tilt the machine backwards in a safe and stable way, like against a wall or friend, then remove the filter from the bottom of the machine. Some water will come out - may a lot! When you have cleared the filter look inside where the filter was and look for a little propeller. That's the pump bit and it should turn if you poke it round with a pointy thing. If it doesn't turn, come back and tell me and we'll take it from there.
