You replace the whole drain pump. Pretty easy to do from the opening in the bottom by resting the unit on its back. (Make sure you drain the unit completely) You should be able to get the drain pump (pt #4681EA2001D) from for less than $50 + s&h.

SOURCE: washer drum doesn't spin, no draining of liquid

If you have got rid of all the water, and it still will not spin, then the odds are it is the brushes in the motor that need replacing.
Quite a common problem

SOURCE: My roper whirlpool washer won't spin or drain. the

Yes, a broken lid switch can cause the washer not to drain. The pumps on these washers are strictly mechanical. They have no electrical connections and only have one moving part - the impeller. If the pump were clogged, it would not drain, but if the drain line is clear, the problem is the lid switch. Since you mentioned your switch was broken, I would begin there. Congrats. You've pretty much already diagnosed your problem.

The most common cause of the problem you are experiencing is a lid switch malfunction. Symptoms may include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, a wash tub that will not drain, and stopping right after the wash cycle and not advancing to rinse or spin cycles.

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

NOTE: You do not have to drain or bail the water from the washer tub to perform this repair. Once a defective lid switch is replaced, the washer should drain normally.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

The average price is about $20 - $30 if you perform the repair yourself. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. The lid switch is a very simple repair that you can easily perform without the assistance of a repairman.

If this advice does not help you enough, has a Repair Manual you can order to assist you with all your repairs. The part number is 1170635 and is priced at about $20. also has a repair manual for about the same price. Part number 4314044L. I hope this information is helpful to you.

NOTE: A simple test to determine if the pump is clogged is to use a wet/dry shop to pull a vacuum on the drain line at the standpipe. If the water drains freely, it is not clogged. You can also use simple gravity by removing the drain line from the standpipe at the wall and laying it on the floor. The water will pour out if the pump and lines are clear. This second procedure is messy and I would not recommend it if you have your washer in an indoor laundry room. You can, however, try to use the gravity method by catching the water in a bucket.

I have a frontload whirlpool washer and the water will not drai n out. I have clean the filter but it wil still not drain

hello, Chances are there is something in the pump and usually it will break off the impeller. You might have to install a new pump. Try unhooking the pump hoses and put the unit in drain and see if the impeller is turning or damaged before buying a new pump. please dont forget to rate me..Thank You..

LD error on the Whirlpool Cabrio Washer. We are trying to remove the drum to remove items


Ld error indicates long drain and flashes when the water level will not change even after the drain pump is on. To resolve this please make sure that the drain hose is not clogged and the pump is working. To gain access to the drain pump you can lay the machine on its front then remove the drain hose and replace the pump if the impeller has gone bad. Please post a comment if need more help.

Washer will not drain. Need to know how to clean

The following link explains how to access and clean the drain pump reservoir on a Whirlpool Duet:

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

Whirlpool washer water won't drain out

Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Check the drain line to make sure it is not obstucted. if not, open the bottom panel and check the strainer in the drain pump.

ultimately, your drain pump may have failed. The pump motor my run but not pump water. The Impeller is probably shot.
