Lg top loader model wt5101hw will not drain checked drain line its good can i acess pump without taking machine apart? Anything else I can do is it possible to check pump to see if its clogged or damaged.


Exact model, same problem here. Purchased March 2011. I was also getting error code "OE". Sears repair came today, and the water pump impeller was jammed.

He took the drain hose off the back (Watch out, water drained all over from water outlet) and stuck his finger in the water outlet. By spinning the impeller backwards and then forwards, he was able to dislodge whatever was clogging it.

Repair would have been around $170.00 if it wasn't warranty repair.

Hope this helps.

My Bosch Maxx (probably about 7 yrs old) was working perfectly till I opened the filter compartment (bottom right) to check it wasn't blocked. It wasn't. Put it back. Next time used machine there...

I had the head gasket replaced but its doing the same thing it was doing before still running hot and now it wont turn over and start

It sounds as though your head gasket wasn't (at least not the only) the problem. If it won't turn over, it sounds as though the pistons are seized. It is entirely possible you have a cracked block. It might also be that your water pump stopped working and caused the block to overheat (although a broken water pump usually leaks antifreeze/water all over the place). Depending on how long you ran the car hot (with little or no water), that engine might be completely unrepairable, especially if it is seized up. You would need to take it to a shop and have them look at it to be sure.

Fridgidaire front load will not empty fabric

Hello, W/D here.

There are a couple of reasons why the fabric softener will not dispense. If everything else dispenses properly (detergent and bleach), then I would suspect a bit of plugging. If the softener remains in the dispenser, the water valve above the tray may be sticking. You'll have to get the top up to check it. If there is water in the tray, or some water/softener, then you'll need to look at the overflow cap. Here's how that works: Your dispensing trays for bleach and softener have a raised tube built into them, and each is covered with a loose fitting cap. When water is let into the tray, the level rises under the cap until it overflows, creating a syphon. The softener is literally pulled from the tray, and chased by the water. When the water stops, the tray level continues to drop, until air gets into the cap, breaking the syphon. The cap can be removed and cleaned. Sometimes the tray has to be removed first. Theres a catch towards the rear of the tray.
Best regards, W/D

Fridgidaire dishwasher will not fully drain.

HI, i recommend checking the following areas to combat this issue.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Water not draining

You need to access to the drain hose, located under the bottom panel, and check that this is not clogged, if you do not find anything in there, check that the connection to the drain line outside the machine is not clogged.

If still no luck, then check that the drain pump is not faulty, that is possible.

You can find schematics and replacement parts by entering model number here.

Same thing happened to us. The problem is a clogged drain filter, and it is very easy to fix. It involves removing 3 screws, and about 1/2 hour to fix the problem. I've outlined the steps below. 269ae44.jpg355ce5c.jpgbcbc7d8.jpg7762d05.jpgfdc1390.jpg8092ed9.jpg6abec1e.jpg

Reverse the steps to put everything back together, and you'll be back in business!

Bottom of freezer has water dripping into it

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over
