Washer doesn't drain

The washer doesn't drain the water. I checked the pump and the interior fins still rotate. I read somewhere that if they are hard to turn, you have to replace the pump. How hard is hard? I turned the fins and they seemed to be a bit stiff. Are they supposed to move really easy or what?

Maytag washer 4000 series show F21


typically there is a "catch chamber" by the purge/drain pump. This collects change and other debris in where the pump forces water to the drain. To find the chamber, there is either a small access door on the bottom or you may have to take front sheet metal off to gain access. This chamber will have a round "cap". Before you remove the cap, make sure you drain all the water with water drain hose into a bucket. Take the cap off and remove debris, then check to see if fins on motor move freely, with slight resistance, before replacing cap and testing. If you can move fins, try putting washer in "drain" position and with a flashlight check to see if fins are moving by themselves. If they are, replace cap and run a rinse then drain cycle.

Water did not drain


see the causes and fix it. God bless you
If your washer won't drain, check these: It spins, but doesn't pump It doesn't spin or pump It pumps, but the water returns It spins, but doesn't pump 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. It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Washer stoped and did not finish rinse cycle now it makes a humming sound and code nd


Washer Error Codes ND IS -No Drain There could be two problems...The drain could be clogged, or the water pump could be bad. Or the belt that runs the pump is sliping or broken
  1. Unplug the washer from the electric outlet.
  2. 3Open the case, and disconnect the water hose from the outlet of the water pump.
  3. 4If you get water pouring out from the pump, then plug that up and check the hose to the sewer. If that is clogged, then you have found the problem.
  4. 5Some washers have a self cleaning filter in that hose somewhere. Check that to be sure it is working properly.
  5. 6Reassemble hose from step 3.
  6. 7Plug washer back in. If it pumps out now, then you are done. If it doesn't, then the water pump is probably defective, so replace it.
  7. 8Reassemble washing machine case...you're done...

The washer will not complete the cycle. It will not drain and spin.


There could be two problems...The drain could be clogged, or the water pump could be bad. Or the belt that runs the pump is slipping or broken.
1 Fill washer with water and wait for the timer to get to the drain mode.
2 Unplug the washer from the electric outlet.
3 Open the case, and disconnect the water hose from the outlet of the water pump.
4 If you get water pouring out from the pump, then plug that up and check the hose to the sewer. If that is clogged, then you have found the problem.

Not spinning to let out water


Hi

If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

Leaking water at the bottom and making load noise


Hi,
From the description of your problem, there are two possibilities.
One, water valve will have to be replaced.
Second, the area of the leak indicates a leaking drain pump.

Hope this helps.
