Washer will not complete cycle

It happens this time of year, no fail. Washer has issues, I pay big fee to repair man to install another water pump for no reason (insert last year) then sears guy comes out and takes a necklace out that is wrapped around the barrel. OK? Now, washer is full, flooding my basement and not emptying. Also, a few days ago, the washer was making squeaking noise. Tried to take out barrel, but its full of water. Sears guy cant come out for a week, big surprise. Thanks!

Sounds like your pump is once again not working. Best thing to do is get a wet vac and get the water out so you can clear the pump. I would also check the rubber gasket around the bottom of the tub and make sure its not worn and makes a good seal all around. If it is not sealing the tub any small item has a good chance of going down and into the pump. Good Luck

Bailed out my Kenmore model 110 26902690 series CG0637263 washing machine. It completed the rinse cycle - Is it the water pump?

I just fixed my whirl pool washing machine by blowing ******* the drain pipe as it wasn't pumping the water out in the spin cycles.
It now pumps the water out in the spin cycle

it may be beyond economical repair
It may cost more in labor costs, a call out fee and spare parts if they are still available than what the actual machine is worth.
And it may have something else fail as time goes on.

Maybe you could get a quote on what it will cost to fix but there may be a charge for providing a quote.

It could be a drive belt to the pump
or a blocked up lint filter
or it could be like my washing machine it was sticking inside the pump

If the drain time exceeds eight minutes, the water valves are turned off and "F02" is flashed.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display.

The water, there was no water left in the tub of the washer, but the clothes were dripping wet; and the cycle was showing to be complete. I had to re-set the dial to the spin setting inorder to completely...

What has happened is that your water pump has gone out and it cannot pump the water out of the washers tub. This is a common issue and replacing the pump is not that hard assuming you have the time, effort, tools and energy.

Washer won't drain water.....will agitate in spin cycles, but stops there and water is still in drum

How handy are you? This problem may lie in the main circuit board. If you call in an authorized service person to do a diagnostic, he would find it in a heartbeat. Watch what he does carefully. He'll try to sell you a new washer for $1100 or install the circuit board for $300 or more. Tell him that you'll think about it. Pay him his service fee of $75. Go to the local appliance supply house and order the board for $110. install it yourself. They upgraded the resistors and beefed up the diodes. My washer is still working after this happened over 5 years ago!

Kenmore washer wont drain or spin but will agitate

There is a water pump in the machine which pumps the water out of the outer tub and into the drain, after the wash and rinse cycles.
It is possible that this pump isn't working properly. I think if it weren't working at all, you wouldn't be able to get beyond the wash cycle.

It has been my experience that small articles of clothing may get washed or spun out of the inner tub and into the area around the pump pick up, thus partially blocking the flow to the pump.
It's also possible that the drain hose from the pump to the drain may be partially clogged.
It is also possible that the pump doesn't run sufficiently long to get all of the water out because its' motor gets hot and shuts down or because of a problem in the control mechanism which manages the the starting and run time of the pump.

First, I would unplug the washer from the wall outlet and probe under the inner tub, or possibly remove the tub to see that there is no blockage from clothing.
It's also possible that things left in clothing pockets like paper clips, small plastic items, etc. can get into the pump and lock up the impeller.
If you're sure it isn't blocked you can then run a "short cycle", no load and water only, and watch to see how much water comes out of the discharge hose where it's hung on the drain pipe.
It should gush out, and tub should be free of standing water prior to the start of the first rinse cycle.
If it does not, then you'll have to access the pump and clear it of obstructions or replace it, if defective.

As it drains, it should start spinning slowly, then speed up as it drains; the final portion of the spin cycle is very fast.
Essentially, the spinning tub wrings out the clothes using centrifugal force.

With the water remaining in the bottom of the tub, it would appear that it is:
a) not spinning long enough, or
b) there is something preventing all the water from getting out in the time allotted by the timer to perform this task.


A fair handy man can get to pump either from the rear of the machine with back plate off, or by removing the cabinet cover from the frame, depending on the model of the the machine.

As always - before attempting any repair, UNPLUG THE UNIT!



When 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.

Washer not spinning and draining water

I just had a similar problem. I broke down and had a repair man come out to take a look. He pulled off the front lower cover, took off the inlet hose on the water pump, and found my two year old daughters sock stuck in the turbine of the water pump. The motor runs both the drum and the pump, therfore it would not spin, and would not let the water drain.

Everything was fine until tonight. I'm having the same problem again. I pulled everything off just like my repair man did, but no sock. I think I might wind up pulling off the whole pump to check the otlet side.

Anyone else have any suggestions?
