Remove the bottom strainers plates and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe, the pump or the selector valve. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

Bathtub is filled and will not drain at all.


If the tub's drain seems to shut off 100%, and it opens properly, most likely you do have a pipe freeze-up problem..... especially if you don't have any other drains having problems. Somewhere below the tub you should have an elbow in the drain pipe.. I'm guessing that the freeze-up has taken place in the elbow... Do what you have to do to warm it up... However, if it's been really cold, a slowly dripping or leaking tub or sink, will quite easily freeze, where ever your first cold spot is...

Speed Queen, cleared clog in pump, still won't drain


The clog may have moved from the pump to the drain line. If the pump overflows, it would make sense to check the drain line to determine whether it is restricted. The drain line is usually clamped onto the pump outlet and can be disconnected by removing the clamp. You can insert a piece of wire or a drain auger and confirm the state of the line. Doing this may prevent an unneeded pump replacement

Asko 620 washer won't drain well with heavy load


Washing machine won't drain

When your washing machine won't drain, it could be as simple as a kinked hose or as complicated as a faulty impeller on the pump. Overloading your washing machine can cause items to be swept into the space between the inner and outer tub, leading to clogs in the drain hose or pump. These clogs may be the reason for why your washing machine won't drain. Here are some steps to help you determine the problem and solution:

1. Pinched hose: Is the drain hose at the back of the washer been flattened or twisted in any area? A pinched hose could prevent the water from draining thoroughly. Gently straighten the hose, and make sure there is sufficient room between the back of the washing machine and the wall to prevent a repeat of the problem.

2. Clogged drain hose or pump:
Does the drum spin normally, but the washing machine won't drain the water? Sometimes a piece of clothing, money, fabric or other debris gets into the water between the inner and outer tub. It may then make its way into a drain hose or even into the pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. Call a repair professional for help.

3. Faulty timer: Does your machine fill with water and begin agitating, but the cycle never advances far enough to allow the water to drain? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. Arrange for washing machine repair service.

4. Worn or loose belts: Are clothes still soaked at the end of a wash, even though the washing machine appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. This is a job for the pros.

5. Faulty or jammed internal impeller on pump: When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? The internal impeller that moves the water through the drain pump may be faulty or jammed. A grinding or grating sound is almost always an indication of a coin, button or other object colliding with the impeller. Have a washing machine repair expert determine if the impeller is jammed and can be cleared, or if the pump needs to be replaced.

6. Pump failure: Is your washing machine more than 7 years old? Your pump may simply have worn out. Even if it sounds as though it is running, the pump may not be working well enough to draw the water out of the machine. Replacement parts for pumps are generally unavailable. A new pump may be necessary.

The dishwasher won't drain completely. Water is left standing in the bottom of the tub.


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Washer won't drain -- clean the pump


First I would try to flush the pump, if the tub is still full of water. To flush the pump, take a garden hose sprayer and fit it tight into the drain hose. Give it a short shot of water, then stick the drain hose back into the drain. Put the washer on spin and see if any water comes out. You may have to do this more than once to clear the pump. If that does not work, siphon the water out of the washer and disconnect the hose from the pump to the drum. Clear the hose the best you can, pour a little water into the drum to check it. Check the pump too, take it apart if you have to.

Bathroom tub drain clogged


If you have a popup/ plunger type drain stopper controlled by a lever at the overflow, then, yes, it would be a great idea to remove that. They commonly add to drain problems.

Remove the two screws at the overflow plate (the one with the lever for stopping the water). Be careful that the gasket between the tub and overfow does not fall out when you fully remove the screws. Pull out the stopper assembly. You may have to jiggle it somewhat. Clear your drain some more and run a little water in it. Then replace the stopper assembly, making sure to keep the overflow drain lined up as you screw the plate back in.

You may consider replacing a lever stopper with a "twist and twirl" type.

If you do not have a lever assembly then you may have to use a small hand held snake to clear out the drain

Clogged drain


there is plastic plug that is used to stop the drain, when you pull the handle.
seems like the chain is broken off the the drain plug. the drain plug is one way plug.
the only suggestion I have is to open the backwall or the ceiling to get to the drain pipe. then you have to open the drain in order to fix this problem.
there is no easy fix, since you can't get to the plug that is in the drain, and the more you pull, the tighter it gets.
I don't suggest try to push the plug down, it may clogged the drain somewhere else.
