Is the hose lower than the tub as this could lead to the water siphoning out due to gravity, the outlet hose standpipe should be at least as high as the top of the drum

"No inlet" light is on.


When pipes are disturbed, often times debris is knocked loose from inside the pipes and ends up blocking the inlet screens on washers, etc. Turn the water supply off to the washer, remove the hose from the back of the machine, and look for a plugged screen right there where the hose connected to the machine.

I have water leaking onto the floor from my LG Tromm washing machine. I tried to check for blockage of the hose but it is still leaking.


Check the connections on the back of the washer for the cold & hot water connections. This just happen to me last week. My husband tighten them and resolved the problem. Good Luck !

Wash tub seems loose and is really loud


We just had that same problem last week. My husband took off the back of the washer and at the bottom you will see a shock absorber on each side. One side of ours was broken. $35.00 later for the parts (you get two in a package) and the tub is sturdy once again. Husband said it was fairly easy to do. Hope this helps!

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

Water leaking on floor after every wash


there should be an acess panel that your husband can remove(2 screws on either side of bottom of panel. From there you will get a bettter idea of where leak is coming from. might be as simple as a hole in a drain line. take a look

Water running out from under the washer


sounds like two seperate problems. firsst water running from under your machine might be a bad seal, or water could be backing up the drain line. i would guess that it is a plumbing problem because of theissue with water in the sink. have a plumber snake out the drain lines and the problem with the washer should disappear.

it is a easy job you will have to take out the pump and all the hoses that are connected to the drum only the bottom ones ok then start to fill the machine with water do this out side if you can you do not want a fluid as well just keep putting water in the soap draw make sure there are no wires that can get wet if every thing is out the way plug the machine in and put it on a program only on spin only that way water will get a round the drum keep doing it and all remains will come out when done put pump back and pipes and put back in the kitchen and put it on a rinse program and let it pump out if it do all that then you have cleared it and give your self a pat on the back if you haven't done it you should go down you local second hand shop that do appliance and tell them and they might take on the job and save you time and money hope i have helped you

Calypso - water goes straight to drain hose-not drum


the hose may still be filled from last cycle. try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
