Tub I want to get to the plastic tub under washing area. when my pump went out, I saw old water in the underneath tub and had to tilt and bail it out.

Ok pull the dome off using the slots on the dome to remove, this will expose six bolts which come off using a 3/8 or 1/2 on rebuild units. This will allow you to carefully lift the wash plate to expose the underside, there is a post on the nutate dome and a hole that matches locate this as you move it so alignment is easier. Carefull not to remove the leveler, or the brown dome:) after you get your cards and scoop some water replce the plate like putting a tire on a truck.

My kenmore elite topload washer is leaking underneath washing machine leaving a puddle whats causing this?


depends. first and foremost, I would fill the unit up about halfway with water, with tub being empty of any clothing. Tilt the machine back where you can look underneath it real good. see if you see any leaks with it half full of water. If you don't see any leaks, put the unit back on all fours, and put it into drain/spin. After tub empties of water, tilt unit back again and check for leaks near the drain pump and hose. If you need any further assistance, look for me on 6ya

Tip

Washing machine won't drain, pump stuck


If your washing machine won't drain and, the pump appears to be stuck:
Go to an autoparts store and, buy a radiator locking hose pinch off plier. Then: unplug the washer (remove all power) bail out all the water with a cup or, bowl; remove the washer cabinet or, tilt back the washer against a wall so that you can access the pump from underneath the front; pinch off the tub to pump hose; lock the plier, place a towel under the pump; remove all screws on the pump cover; remove the blockage from the pump and, reattach the pump cover. remove the pliers and, test the washer. (if you can acces the pump from the front (like a front load washer) you do not need to bail out the water as, the pliers will hold the water in the tub, so that only a small amount of water will come out when you open the pump.)

I have a fisher and Paykle GW612 washing machine, it won;t drain the water and won;t do the spin cycle. It now is making a huming noise. I think it is the motor that has an issue?


There should be a tech sheet located underneath the control panel that has the procedure for putting the machine in "diagnostic mode" and you can easily run the water pump by itself. Listen for a "hum" sound- If you hear a hum instead of a running water pump, then something is keeping that pump from turning for sure.

If this is the case, then you would need to check your water pump. It is located underneath the machine in the right front corner (as viewed from the front of the machine)
There is a black plastic external cooling fan impeller that you can spin with your finger (of course unplug the machine first) and see if the pump spins freely. You should also examine the pump for signs of leakage or corrosion. You may simply have an object that was left in someone's pocket that has become lodged in the pump. Pump removal requires no tools, however you need to first bail out as much of the remaining water in the wash tub as possible.

Leaking water from bottom


Hello there:
If the washer leaks all the time, check these: Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate. Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub-

This way when you remove the hose from the pump or sump (if it is either of them that are at fault) you won’t soak the floor, providing you put a basin or bowl under the item you are removing.

Ecosmart washer stops with a full tub of water.


Hi there
first turn the machine off then tilt the machine back and lean it on something(a chair or wall), look underneath, in the top right hand corner of the plastic outer boul you will see a small pump motor it has a fan on it spin this fan and if it is hard to turn that means there is somthing stuck in the drain pump keep turning the fan and try to free whatever is stuck in the pump, then try the machine on spin again all goin well the object in the pump should come out with the drain water( doing this will not harm the machine) if the object is still stuck you will need to get the water out of the machine (bailing or siphioning will work) and tilt the machine back again and take the wires off the pump and there should be a white tab in the boul holding the pump on pull this tab and twist the pump anticlockwise about a quarter turn(you will need a few towels or a boul or bucket to catch the water) and it should come off exposing the blockage.
Hope this solves your Problem.
