Must be something in the pump. To verify simply lay the hose on drain hose down to floor level over a bucket. If no water comes out then your pump is blocked. In order to inspect for objects in the pump you must remove the cabinet to access the innards on this machine. Do not work from behind this machine. It is designed to be fixed in place. Flip up the controls and remove the cabinet. Get a pail to catch the water and remove the hoses to access the inside of the pump.

    You never mentioned it would not spin either. You must think I am an idiot. The lid switch on your model will allow wash mode but not spin mode. You my friend have a broken lid switch if that pump is ok. The lid swich has two live wires and a green ground wire. Jump them 2 live wires and bypass the switch and she if she pump out Mon Ami.

How do I get water out of the inner tank of my B60 Keurig?

Turn off and unplug the Keurig brewer. Remove the water reservoir from the machine, empty it into the sink and place aside.

Move the machine to the side of the sink with the back hanging over the sink. Locate the drain cap on the back of the machine, and remove the drain cap.

Empty the water into the sink. Do not tilt the machine more than 90 degrees while emptying to make sure all water drains. Replace the drain cap. Place the machine back on your counter or in storage if you do not plan to use it.

Empty water light, empty condenser

I experienced the problem with a hotpoint TCYM 750, with the red empty water light failing to switch off. After removing the filter and cleaning it, cleaning the condenser and drying anywhere I had access to the machine still didn't heat and the light remained on. Reading the post about the machine having 3 reservoirs it struck me that one of the reservoirs may be hard to access. So I unplugged the machine and tipped it onto its front. The reservoir drained, I pushed the machine back upright and cleared up some water around the condenser. The drier now works properly and the empty water light is off - job done!

It is not draining the water out it is a haier hw-c1460tveme-0

Hi, you can drain the water by disconnecting the grey empty hose putting the end in a bucket and lowering the pipe flat and below the tub level, the water will empty under gravity into the bucket.

When its empty CLICK HERE to follow the instructions ho how to check and empty the filter of any debris, then try the machine again, is it still does not empty then suspect pump failure.

hope this helps.

Wont spin

Probably down to the water not emptying from the machine in the empty cycle and the machine won't spin because there's still water in the drum. If this is the case, the root of the problem is almost certainly a blocked filter, restricting the draining of the water and not allowing it all to pump out in time during the empty cycle. You probably need to find and clean your filter.

Bosch wff 1401 not emptying water therfor not able to spin the pump goes round but water does not empty if i drain the water the machine will spin

If you have not already done so, then check and clean filter located at bottom front right of washer behind drop down cover.
If it still does not empty, then it is either blocked between the pump and tge waste outlet, or the pump itself could be faulty.

My machine emptys the water but it does not turn

If the machine gets water but does not turn, then check lid switch, motor, and control board.

If no water is getting inside the machine, check inlet valve, water level switch and control board.
