I ( foolishly)attempted to wash several rugs together,the machine did not spin and empty the water. I manually removed the rugs and after several attempts and many hours I did get it to spin and empty out. There was plenty of debris in the washer from the backing off the rugs.The machine appears to be empty of water but I hear water sloshing under the bucket.( same problem posted Dec.2006 by another user). I think some of the debris may be blocking something, but how do I check this out without having water all over the place?

Re: water in machine under bucket
Your outlet hose put it down close to the floor into a bucket if water comes out then your pump may have blown if not it will be blocked up u may find if u take the outlet hose of water may come out which means your pipe is blocked

The spin cycle is reliant on the drain pump removing water from the tub.
It is a common ocurrance of objects (ie hair pins, pegs, coins etc) to be mistakenly washed through the cycle. Washing machines will often flush these objects down through the drain pump, and get caught in the little propeller of the pump.
So, it is imperative that you inspect the drain pump first and remove any obstruction within the drain pump cavity.
Turn machine power OFF at the wall and remove the power plug.
i) place an empty bucket on the floor ii) lower the drain HOSE into the bucket - gravity will cause the water to drain into the bucket. Empty the bucket. Perform this procedure until all water has been emptied from the bowl. iii) move the washing machine out from the wall, to gain access to the drain pump (usually a large screwcap). Place a large towel on the floor, under the screwcap - this will catch any remaining water that escapes. iv) unscrew the drain pump cap and withdraw the cap. This cap may also contain a filter, so remove any lint/objects from this filter. v) with the pump cap/filter removed, look inside the pump cavity and remove any visible obstruction from the impellar (little propeller thing). Then, with your finger, turn the little impellar in both directions - if you feel a 'rubber band' like resistance, then the drain pump may be ok at this point. vi) remove all wet clothes from the machine bowl. vii) re-assemble the drain pump cap/filter and secure it in place. Install drain hose back into your laundry tub. Plug machine back into power. viii) fill the bucket with water and pour water back into your machine's bowl. Repeat with a 2nd bucket of water. ix) manually select and operate SPIN cycle on the machine. Observe if drain pump functions correctly and empties water from the bowl. If yes, then you have resolved the problem.
If your pump has been cleared of all obtstructions but your machine will still not empty water from the bowl, then a full diagnostic will need to be carried out by an authorised service agent to determine which component has failed.
Drop your drain hose to floor level with bucket under it this will drain with no power applied , pour in as much water as you can to flush it out / clear pump .After all suds clear refit / restart ..Should now fill, wash/ empty and spin...I hope ...
Emptying the tub is easy, just lower the drain hose into a bucket on the floor, or into a floor drain. If the timer can be operated manually, turn it to spin, then drain after spinning a while. If this is an electronic timer, you will need to remove the clothes and take to a laundromat or a friend's house to spin the water out.
Hi, could be your timer motor, timer or water level switch, first push timer knob in and manually advance to wash or spin cycle (program) then pull knob, see if machine operates, let me know, then i can tell you exactly what's problem.also advance timer, to spin cycle (program) machine should pump out water, or you can lower drain hose into bucket and empty machine, you should empty machine and try again, let me know what happened, we can solved this together. good luck.
more than likely the pump needs replacing, first of all remove the outlet drain hose from the the place it discharges and lower it into a bucket,this should allow it to syphon away,you may need to empyt the bucket a few times once the machine is empty you should be able to put it on its spin cycle once it has spun locate and remove the filter to remove any objects or lint, fill machine with warm water and try to drain and spin via the programme,if this do not work fit a new pump
hi there this is a common fault empty the water into a bucket and remove the water pump to check for blockages, the pump is located at the rerar lefthand side of the w/m.
also check your drain hose where it connects under your sink.
