Water wont drain from tub after rinse cycle.

My washer goes through a complete cycle nearly but stops at the end of the rinse cycle and wont drain the water out. I have to manually drain the water and then ringe the clothes by hand. I have had this washer for 8 years and never had a problem. The touch control panel is still active and I have been told that its not the motor because the lights and panel are still ok.. Any suggestions.

    Washer will not go rinse cycle, it washes thoroughly and stops and the water doesn't drain and refill for rinsing. I have check all drains for plugs by taking all drain hoses loose and reconnecting...tried again and no luckit stops after washing and before the rinse cycle...It's act as though the lid is up...how can I check the lid sensor and know if that's my problem.

    Our washer keeps stopping and beeping during the rinse cycle. I take for ever to wash one load. I believe it is doing it because during the fast rinse spin the whole washer shakes and the inner basket keeps hitting the inside of the washer. How do I tighten the basket so it is not so loose?

It's the diverter valve, no doubt about it. It's almost a miracle that it took 8 years for it to go out. Mine went out after 2. The repair guy said to go ahead and buy a couple just to have on-hand. Very common for these washers. Buy one directly from Fisher Paykel and you won't get screwed. It's, I think, $17.00.

You need to un-plug the machine, tilt the machine back and remove the drain pump from underneath and chech for a blockage. To remove the drain pump pull the wires off it then turn it like a light bulb while pushing the small white lock clip away from pump top.

We had a similar problem. Fault code 37, with 'too many suds' warnings before this. Then, it simply did not rinse or spin at the end of the wash cycle.

We emptied the washer & drained as much water as possible. Then flip the machine onto its side and unhook the drainage pipes one by one on the underneath of the machine, looking for accumulated 'gunk' or other blockage. Re attached each pipe after checking. We found the blockage to be a 2-3 inch plug of old fluff that had got wet and over time blocked one of the drainage pipes. Picked it out with a pair of tweezers & bingo, she's good to go again.

Good luck.

I am 99% positive it is just a blocked pump, yes diverter valves do stop working and get blocked but only ECO models have diverter valves. So in this case am positive you got something in the pump.

the pump is located on the under side of the machine on the right hand side. So remove the wiring and it has a clip so pull the clip back and give it a 3\4 turn and it will come off, remove obstruction and you should be all good :)

Same problem.

Removed the front setting panel, found a small clear plastic tube ( about 1/4'' in diameter ) which runs down along the side of the machine towards the bottom of the tub.
Disconnected tube, blew in to it and refitted.
Retested with a full wash load, all worked well.

Kenmore washer stops spinning a few seconds in to the cycle.

Sounds like the brushes are struggling to get enough power to the motor to spin. Renew motor brushes

Top loading washer that won't aggitate, or rinse.

without knowing more details, and considering it's age , my guess is that you have a disconnection (or a loose wire) to the solenoids under the tub. these solenoids activate the clutch system that pulls it into agitate and spin modes. it might be the solenoids, but rarely do both go out at the same time. it might be the timer contacts or connections behind the control panel. or, it might be the timer its self.
try unplugging the unit and check all the connections.
hope this helps jay

Incomplete wash cycle.

It sounds as if you have something acting as a flap causing the restriction. You should take the hose that leads from the tub to the pump off and see if there is anything just inside the tub. I have noticed that alot times you could have a coin that blocks the opening. You may have to remove the inner tub to remove anything in there

Front loead washer will not spin/rinse,

First, make sure that you do not overload the machine.
When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Kenmore stack washer and dryer

gabehart....sounds like belt is slipping. Replace it. The water pump is on a separate smaller motor so is not affected by the agitator/spin motor.

Won,t drain on rinse cycle

There could be several causes for this, but probably a bad timer. One test for this...when it stops...is to turn it off...and turn the timer slightly clockwise...to the middle of the rinse cycle...and turn it back on. Does it run then?? Try advancing it to the spin cycle after the rinse. If it runs okay after you manually advance the knob...the timer is probably defective.
