    My machine is only 13 weeks old and I have the same problem. The company told me that if I had a service man come and they found something in the pump then it was our fault; if it is found to be manufactures problem then warranty would cover. I can't even find where a how to on the pump or its location on the machine to look and see if something is blocking it? I've turned off several times and turned on to no avail, I have also emptied the water out and looked around to see nothing blocking? My model is the IWL16

    have fisher paykel gwl15 less than 2 yrs. old. Operates properly until it gets to rinse cycle. Starts cycle and then after a few moments it will start beeping. Can press button until it goes to spin and after several attempts at his washer will drain and start spinning. Removed hose on pump last night and 2 coins fell out but still not working

I had the same problem. The machine was not draining. I drained the water tipped the machine on its face and exposed the pump. As you face the bottom of the pump there is a plastic lever on the left hand side of the pump. Depress the lever and turn the pump assembly counter clocwise to remove. In my machine I found a piece of a toothpick and a bit of cellophane. Enough to stop the pump impellor. Aside from draining the water it took me an hour to figure this out. Next time it will be 5 minutes!
Good Luck

We had same problem. Error Code 37 (drain / pump). We followed the instructions re. turn off, restart ... but the issue remained. The tub would not drain when it came to the drain cycle. Gave up and decided on a service call at the end of the weekend.
Woke up the next morning and the tub had "mostly" drained. Weird. Did a bit of reading on these fixit sites and decided the housing and hoses were simple enough to get to.
Bailed out the tub best we could, disconnected main water hoses, drain hose and electric cord and tipped over outside (even with the bailing a lot of water still in there). The pump and hoses are easy to get at once it is tipped on its side.
Removed the hoses WITH CLIPS...i.e. the ones that can be / should be removed to see if there is a block. Nothing. Then removed the "Y" valve below the pump that (electronically) opens and closes depending if it is draining the tub or recycling water back up into the tub. That's where our problem was. Right in the middle next to the valve was something stuck between the wall and the valve preventing the valve from closing from the recycle hose to the drain hose. Got tweezers and removed a piece of seashell. Put it back together and it works just like new.
The pump and fittings are pretty easy to figure out if you go slow and think. The pump itself is as simple as lifting a white plastic clip and twisting the whole pump off to get a look at the impeller and housing. Good luck!

Error code 37 - we were all ready to check the pump using mzlacey's advice when we turned the washer over discovered a plastic bag had gotten stuck underneath. Removed the bag and the washer is now working perfectly! Thanks for advice.

Does the water pump out ? If you have a blocked pump then NO water will flow out of the drain hose - Here is how to test the PUMP. Turn Washer on at the wall. When the front panel lights all go out,hold down WASH TEMP DOWN button while pressing POWER. Release both. Then pour a bucket of water into the bowl. Now press REGULAR button. The pump should start and pump out the water if OK. Turn POWER off and then ON to resume normal operation.

I just had a fuel pump and filter put on my 1993 ford exployer and the cadaylitic converters cleaned out but my engine light keeps coming on after it lurches for a moment around 60 miles per hour.


You cannot take apart the catalytic converters to clean them. They are sealed. If this was a shop that charged you for this service then find an honest competent shop to diagnose the Explorer. This almost sounds like an electrical issue (like arcing spark plug wires). If you open the hood in a really dark area, lightly spray some mist water onto the top of the engine while it's running and see small arcing sparks then it's time for new spark plug wires. You can do this little test for free before you take it to a shop.

Gas dryer is heating but takes 3 cycles on hot to get towels dry! It used dry the towel with 1 cycle. Is there an adjustment that can be made or is the Sears service repair man required?


Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Kitchenaid Superba Whisper Quiet Ultima: It won't drain. I returned from a trip to find a puddle of water in the basin/reservoir, which usually drains during a normal wash/dry cycle. Now it'll shoot out...


Not familiar with that model, but one time I found a baby sock jamming the water outlet in a dishwasher, so check to make sure there's no foreign object blocking any exits. Other than that, I suspect it will need to be serviced, or at least taken apart for further inspection.

Saeco incanto. very slow output, inconsistant flow. Have cleaned all as per intructions. won't always pour full cup as set. somtimes works perfect and then the next cup is slow and does not fill.


Well its either two things blockage somwere or a bad water turbine, the turbine i cant fix online so lets trie tha blockage.

First check if you have a Aquaprime filter in the water tank, in that case take it out. ( big white thing)

Then turn the SBS ( the knob on the oulet) to the far left.

Posted by lazybug002 on May 28, 2008
What can I do and what part do I need to replace? I have taken it apart and clean it but still won't pickup the water.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X Clean Shot Upright. It sounds to me that you may have a clog or an obstruction or the channel to the suction motor per say might be broken and is not creating the suction needed to pickup the water to the recovery tank. So check with your local factory authorized vac dealer that carries and services Bissell. I will give you the Bissell factory phone # listed below for further questions. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
