Typically, the drain line is in some way plugged, kinked, or blocked. Disconnect the drain line from the drain, wherever it is attached and see if the machine will drain into a bucket, or if you can find an obstruction of some sort on (or in) that line.

I may be able to be more specific if you were to provide make and model of the machine.

Hope this helps,
Kermit

Cycle has stopped 31 mins from end and has lit up check water. No blockage and this should be the drying cycle. Is this a repairable problem or not as it is old?


On many older machines, there was only one water pump. During the wash and rinse cycles, the pump would cause the water to spray the inside of the cabinet. At the end of the cycle a solenoid would open a valve and the pump would then cause the water to be sent to the drain. There are a couple of ways to check for this. Ordinarily, you would hear a knock or thump when the solenoid operates. Another way to tell is if you still have a lot of food particles during the rinse cycle - particles that should have been drained out at the end of the wash cycle.

Some solenoids were not particularly expensive and are fairly easy to replace. If you post your make and model number, I can get more information for you.

Won't drain at end of cycle. water still inside bottom of machine


you have something in the pump or pump is burned out. find the pump: take the back off the wwasher, follow two 1 inch(or about that size) hoses, attached to these hoses is a pump. now, dissconnect hoses ( have towels and buckets ready to catch water) and remove cover on pump. Inpect inside fins to see if there is something keeping them from not moving.

The washer floods at the end of the cycle the pump is working this i know because when i manualy lift the mushroom float it pumps out could it be that there is a membrane in the mushroom float that is...


Hi there,

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "floods at the end of the cycle". Is water leaking from the washer and where from?

The mushroom float isn't a water level sensor to determine when the washer should pump out. It's a second level safety feature to prevent flooding if the washer overfills. The flow meter regulates the water level in the washer.

Your pump is obviously working and there is no blockage in the drain hose, etc as the water pumps out when you lift the mushroom float. It sounds like the pump isn't receiving a signal from the controller to pump out at the end of the wash cycle. Lifting the float bypasses the controller and runs the drain pump.

Please try the following simple test:

1. Switch the programme selector to "Off"
2. Empty a bucket of water into the bottom of the washer
3. Turn the programme selector to any wash cycle
4. Press and hold the Reset button (start/stop) for at least 3 seconds. The washer should drain.

Please try this test and let me know if the washer pumps out. Please can you also be a little more specific about how and where the washer is flooding.

Thanks,
BElectric
