Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

The hose on the front of my washer used for draining out water left under the drum some how slipped back through the hole. I removed the screw in the panel and tried to remove it and couldn't. Is there a secret to removing this little rectangle that is giving me such a headache? Your help will be so much appreciated. :)

    All I need to do is remove the little plastic cover in front of my machine where the clean out is. No wiring or anything needed. Just need to retrieve my little front drain hose that drains out the remaining cup of water that is left in the drum after the cycle is finished. It just keeps the musty smells away.

Maytag maxima washer won't drain


get to the back of the unit and take out the 2 screws on the back of the lid . remove the lid. look at the front electrical panel -remove the screws holding it in place. look inside the unit on the right and left side -- there may be 2 screws holding the front on - about 7 inches down. there may be two screws also at the bottom of the front panel. If the washer won't drain, should check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't drain properly, if at all. If the washer won't drain water check the drain hose. Be sure the hose did not get kinked behind the washer. Also, remove the hose from the pump and check it for obstructions. If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Not draining all the way


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. Gently tip the unit to the rear and block it up on something solid so that the front of the machine is high enough up that you can reach under the the front of the machine. I use THREE 2x4" blocks nailed together with blocks under BOTH front legs. The pump is in the right front corner of the base. Grasp the pump pulley and see that it turns freely. You will also be turning the motor but that is fine. If it turns freely start the fill cycle and let it fill until there is about 8 inches of water in the tub. Have someone select spin and then WATCH the pump pulley. Make sure it is not intermittently stopping or that the pump drive belt is not slipping. If all of this checks good the next step is to drop the drain hose and see if the water in the tub will drain by gravity at a pretty good rate. If it does not drain rapidly with the drain hose below the wash tub with water in it then there is something in the bottom of the Tub blocking the drain hole. <br /> You will have to remove the front panel by remove the 2 phillips head screws near the bottom front corners. Then pull the front cover toward you for a little over 30 degress and remove the panel. There are spring 2 clips at the top of the panel your disengaging. <br /> Remove the TUB drain hose from the bottom of the wash tub and check in the hole for any obstructions. Next remove the hose from the top of the pump and check the pump impeller. Using both hands... one on the pump pulley and one finger in the pump top hole hold the impeller and turn the pump drive pulley. It should NOT slip. If it is slipping you will have to change the pump. <br /> That is pretty much it for trouble shooting a drain problem other than making sure the drive belt is ok. If you can not clear an obstruction then the top of the machine has to be opened and the inner wash tub has to be removed. I wil help you with that IF you end up with somehing between the inner and outer wash tub blocking the drain hole. Just respond here and I will get back to you. <br /> <br /> Parts diagram for pump Item 28 and washing machine: <a href="http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=45823">http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=45823</a><br /> <br /> Thanks for choosing FixYa.<br /> <br /> Kelly <br /> <br /> <br />

Yesterday made a grinding noise and leaked water out on the floor from under unit.it still works


The noise would be indeed coming from the water pump.

To clean the pump on this top-loader you have to unplug it, pop the top open, and remove the front face of the cabinet to expose the motor and pump.

Slip off the two metal clips hugging the pump to the motor. Place a towel under the motor before detaching the hoses - there's a plastic drip pan between the pump and motor to guide the water away from the motor.

Unclamp the two hoses from the pump by squeezing their spring-clamps with pliers and sliding them further down the hose. Pull the hoses off by lifting the pump off its axle and pulling it out while wiggling the hoses loose. Check if anything jammed in the pump - it must have fallen to the outside of the basket but inside the drum during the last spin cycle, and went down the drain hose. Check the pump for damage and replace if necessary.

For future troubleshooting, remember that a clogged pump causes squealing, diminished spin speed, and slow drainage.

The first thing I would do is to inspect the inner tub. Empty your washer and carefully check all holes inside the inner tub and under the agitator for any foreign objects and remove if any.

If it's nothing there then you have to remove the front panel. Tape the lid to the top panel. Using a putty knife push in to release top panel clips on both sides. Lift up the top panel toward the back.

Remove the screws on top of the front panel on each side. Pull out the top of the front panel toward yourself for about 30 degrees and release it from the bottom clips. Now you have an access to inside the washer. Run the washer without the front panel and try to locate the sound. Let me know your findings.

Water begins to drain into the detergent drawer but does not drain into drum fast enough so the drawer area begins to fill and then begins to spill out of the drawer area all over the floor. If I press...


remove the drain pump and check out.
This is inevitably caused by a blockage. The small fabric conditioner compartment in the soap dispenser drawer has a removable plastic cap. This cap fits on the top of a tube which has a hole running through it where the water should siphon through.

When the time comes for the fabric conditioner to be released, cold water enters the small compartment and just washes the conditioner over the top and down the dispenser to the tub. When the water stops flowing, all that is left is the clear water. This water should siphon up the inside of the cap and down the tube.

This tube often gets blocked with the conditioner and if you remove the dispenser drawer and take off the cap you can give the whole thing a good clean out. If the cap is missing, the siphoning will not occur.

To test the function, hold the soap drawer under the tap and allow the water to fill the fabric compartment to overflowing. When you turn off the tap, the remaining water should slowly siphon out of the hole under the cap.

its the problem in the pump and something is getting blocked in the pump so water is not getting out.

  1. Unplug the washer. Remove the three screws along the bottom of the toe panel and pull the panel forward to remove it.
  2. Put your bucket or towels under the drain pump. Open the pump slowly so the water doesn't all spill out at once. If you have a wet/dry vacuum, you can connect it to the drain hose to remove the water from the washer before opening the pump.
  3. Open the door covering the pump wiring and disconnect the wiring.
  4. Remove the two drain lines from the pump.
  5. Remove the screw that attaches the pump to the washer frame and pull out the pump.
  6. if the pump is leaky or cracked it needs replacement.

Moving across country. Want to know how to safely move my whirlpool duet washer. Have original huge screws. What to do with them?


The large screws you mention are called shipping (or transport) bolts. They need to be installed prior to moving the washer to prevent damage to the drum, drum supports or counter-weights. They are inserted in the back of the washer. There are some small white plastic transport covers that you will need to remove to see where the screws insert. You can view an exploded view diagram of your washer at pcappliancerepair.com. The transport covers that I am describing are listed as item 26 under the "Top and Cabinet Parts" section.

In addition, its a good idea to remove any residual water from the wash tub and drain lines. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, an easy way to accomplish this task is to remove the drain line from the stand pipe at the wall and pull a vacuum on the line. This will pull any water that remains in the washer. This water can become stagnant if the washer remains closed up for any significant period of time. If you do not own a shop vac, an alternate method is to remove the clean out trap on the drain pump. Be prepared to place some towels down around the pump to catch any water. To access the drain pump, remove the toe panel directly below the washer door. This is done by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

NOTE: For better access to the panel screws, you can prop up the two front feet of the washer (a 2x4 works well for this).

The drain hose normally has a plastic saddle bracket that helps the hose keep its shape. On that bracket is a screw hole. Remove one of the top panel screws in the rear of the washer and reinstall with the drain hose bracket attached. This will enable you to ship the washer with the drain hose affixed to the back of the unit and not dangling.

When removing the fill hoses, leave them attached to the washer and tape them to the back panel of the washer. Or, remove them and place them inside the wash tub for safe keeping.

I hope I've given you enough information to assist you with your move. If you have any further questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hi! I have a Gibson Front Load washer, manufactured by Frigidaire I believe, Model # GWT645RHSO. It is leaking from below the drum. I opened the back for a better view of where the leak was coming...


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. It is either leaking from drain pump joint or the drain pump has developed a crack. You'll need to remove the drain pump for any cracks or loose connections. Please see the steps to remove the drain pump---
Use a shop vacuum to **** all the water through the drainhose. Remove the bottom front panel held by two screws on bottom and twoplastic pins at the top. Locate drain pump in front right. Removedelectric connector on front of pump. Remove two screws holding pump down. Usedpliers to move spring clips back so hoses could be removed. Put hoses on newpump and squeeze the clamps with pliers to pull them back over the hoseconnection. The connection on the left will cause a little pain due to spacelimitations. Now put the screws back on the pump after checking and reconnectthe electric plug. Put the bottom cover back on and screw it into place.

This schematic will help you--

My frigdaire front load washer ate my underwire bra wire


Do not attempt to remove a drum unless you have been trained to do so

First thing to do is to dump the back drain hose into a big dish and drain off all of the standing water
in the machines sump.

Remove the power !!

Tip the machine towards the back and front to get as much water out of it as possible

Tip the machine back agains a wall or a bench with a cloth protecting both surfaces

Put a wooden block underneath the front edge of the machine in case it falls on you

Get a torch and look at the bottom of the drum , there will be a big hose connected to the base with a jubilee clip or spring clip

Remove the clip and pull the hose off , place a cloth on the floor as there may still be some water in the hose , if you are lucky the wire will be either in the hose or in the sump that the hose is fixed to.

If the hose is connected to the rear of the drum tip the machine as far back as possible allowing the wire to fall within reach of the hole

If you cant see it get a magnetic retriever or a piece of bent coat hanger and go fishing.


If the hose is fitted to the front of the drum reverse the machine and lay it on its front or as far forward as possible , that way the wire will fall towards the hole

Lg front load washer leaking from bottom of machine


I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)
  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
  3. Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
  4. If you can pull the plastic recessed piece out, there is one screw visible behind it - unswcrew this. If you cannot pull it out now, you should be able to get it after you remove the screws in step 10
  5. Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
  6. Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
  7. Pull the top of the electronics assembly away from the machine and lift the assembly out (place on top of the machine or hook it out of the way)
  8. Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
  9. Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
  10. Remove four screws at the top of the front panel (that were behind the eletronics assembly) - If you already have removed the screw from step 4, proceed, otherwise lean the top of front panel out and pop the plastic out, hold panel in place and remove that bottom screw from step 4.
  11. Lift front panel about two inches, swing the entire front panel to the right and set against something - You should now be able to see inside the machine.
  12. There is a black hose right in the middle - when I squeezed mine a little, I could see where the water was dripping out from the bottom.
  13. There are three clamps - two that can be squeezed with pliers and removed, one that has to be unscrewed (phillips head screw - it is a bit blind as the screw faces the back of the machine) - Once I got mine off - I could see the hole.
  14. Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order

My Front Load Washer Won't Drain


your pump is the most likely culprit if you look in side the washer you will see a seem in the tub next to that will be one of the washer tumblers take the screws out of that tumbler slide it forward there will be a hole there rotate the tub to your right and you will find the hole going down to the drain pump can check it there but i don't think you'll find any thing as that is a larger hole it think your drain pump is now if you have a shop vac this is time to vacuum the water of the tub and all the way down the drain hole for the next stage usally i tell customers to remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and vacuum the water out of the washer from the drain hose but because of the pillow this might not work in your case. Now remove the two screws on the front lower panel and pull the panel
in side you will see the drain pump if you did not have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps and clamp the hose line as close to the washer as possible.(but put down some towels as water always stays there) then pull the tub to pump hose by depressing the squeeze clamp(now while your at the auto parts id get a screw clamp to replace the spring clamp it makes putting the hose back on a lot easier)pull the hose off.Then pull the pump to drain hose off .Remove the two 5/16 in screws securing the pump to the washer base.Unplug the connector and remove the pump inspect the pump for foreign objects,broken or stripped impeller blades . if the impeller are stripped you will have to replace the pump then form the front of the washer take a piece of water hose with one end cut off and run it down the pump to drain end of the drain and reassemble the unit
