Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

Please score this accordingly.
Thanks and good luck!

Sludge on mah5500bww spinner support


That sludge is causing the error. The spindle is not being lubricated thoroughly and when the motor tries to turn it, it drags in spots and gives the unbalanced error. Clean it off and regrease it and if there is a seal or gasket, replace it.

1. washer will not proceed to next cycle 2. water remains in washer, and can't open 3. not draining 3 won't drain even when manually advancing cycle


This is the drain cycle and it shows that the drain is not working at all. So make a test with the washer on in the drain cycle and test the voltage on the drain pump./valve, if voltage ispresetnthe drain valve/pump is faulty or cloggged. If there is no votage then the program controller is faulty. you might ahve to check if the controller can be rectified or replaced as a whole.

Check the drain is not clogged. Check the water outlet pipe is draining downwards. Remove outlet pipe from the back and look in with a flashlight to see if there is an obstruction.

Clean on bottom rack but dirty on top


Clean the filter at the bottom of the tub. If it is dirty or clogged the water pressure may not be strong enough to spin the top arm. Make sure also the there is nothing blocking the holes of the spinner arm. If the filter and arm are clear then the pump may be failing.

Water from the cycle remains in the bottom of the washer.


Sure we can help, what are we sitting here for. And don't forget, ITS FREEE. (The weight of the washer is not the water, but concrete blocks to counter balance your clothes; so the machine does not fly off when it spins.) The draining involves several factors, giving you the most common. If you surf this site you'll find your solution. Solution is for another machine, but could be helpful for you: The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 screws. The panel will drop and come off. The filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in. Plz rate if helped.......

Dishes and Flatware Don't Get Clean


Check to see that the removable cup rack on the left is seated correctly. One of the support legs of this rack is located above center of the spinner. If this leg is sitting on the top of the spinner rather than the center cross member of the main rack, the spinner will not move after that rack has been loaded.
Also check that the spinner is free moving once the draw is fully loaded, some plates can sit low enough to obstruct the spinner.

Kenmore agitates doenst spin


You will have to look at the inside of the washer when in spin cycle to see what is going on. Is the spinner motor not engaging the drum? Is the spinner working at all? It sounds like the spinner isn't being moved against the drum before the spin cycle starts. Most washers use a seperate spinner motor, which is lifted off the drum by a relay and / or solenoid and if one or more of those is malfunctioning, it will cause your described problem.
