Fisher and Paykel - SmartFisher and Paykel - SmartDrive (9) Excellence 7.5 - Pump Blockage

Hi everybody, I am experiencing problems with this washing machines pump. I am pretty sure it is a pump blockage. How do I get to the pump to clean this? Are there any blueprints for the engine/internals of this machine? I am clueless. Thankyou

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

My Samsung washer does not drain or spin, what can I do?


Hi Anil.
The most common cause for the machine not to drain is a problem with the drain pump.
It could be that there is something in the hose which is blocking it or something in the pump filter doing the same thing.
Depending on the age of the machine it's also possible that the pump motor needs to be replaced.
Check that the hose is not kinked by the machine being too close to a wall.
I hope this helps.
It's not a big job for an experienced serviceman.....
Cheers.

My washer can wash but cannot drain water from thye tub. how can i fix this?


The question is pretty loose so I will do the best I can without knowing the model and type of washer but they are all basically the same.

If the washing machine appears to be functioning normally but simply won't pump away the water then the possible causes (in the most likely order) are a blockage somewhere, a pump failure, or an electrical fault stopping the pump from running.
Blockages are the more likely explanation, but pumps can fail. If the washing machine will not empty the water out you may also not be able to open the door on some washing machines although these days it's much rarer to have a pneumatic lock on the door due to cost cutting [ if a washing machine has a pneumatic door safety lock a rubber hose is connected to the door interlock from a pressure chamber bottle on the tub - water in the tub forces air up this tube and locks the door, which is released when the water is pumped out and the air pressure drops].
Full and detailed advice about finding your pump filter, draining the washing machine when stuck full of water and looking for blockages can be found here - troubleshooting pump faults on a washing machine.
If this is helpful a vote with the thumbs up would be appreciated for the free advice and is you need furthur explanaition please feel free to contact me .
Thanks

F12 won't drain or final rinse and spin


Hi, i'm pretty sure that this would seem to suggest that the pump maybe faulty or that there is a blockage, arm yourself with a large bucket or bowl and take the drain hose from the machine gently lowering it to below the washing machine tub level, make sure the drain hoseis quite flat or level as you do this, lift the hose if you need to stop the water because the bucket is full, empty the bucket and start again until no more water runs, then set about checking the filter for blockages or anything that maybe fouling the pump, if all is clear then it could be a suspect pump,if not clear all debris clean the filter re-insert it and make sure the drain hose is back in place, try the machine on a cycle,let it fill and see if it empties(pump runs), if not, the machine will not take in any further fresh water or do a main spin because there is water trapped in the machine. so you will have to go through the manual drain procedure again as above and try a new pump, there is also the possiblity it could be the main control board or faulty control loom.

If in doubt look for a washing machine technician that maybe able to give you a free quote.

Hope this helps.

Take the left side panel off and see you there is any blockage in the big plastic pipe array. It is pretty easy to take off and hosepipe water through it whilst knocking it to remove any blockages. The same for the red float value just to the right of the pipe array. Make sure you have it unplugged whilst doing this !!!

The error indicates that the machine has taken too long to drain the water. Do the following.

  1. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
  2. Remove the access panel on the lower right front of the machine.
  3. Remove the filter by twisting anti clockwise and pulling forward and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required.
4. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked.
5. Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
6. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
7. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
8. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
9. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
10. Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition.
11. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
12. If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.

Aeg electrolux error message E20 has just flashed up during drying cycle. What does that mean? Had to turn washing machine off and on again to get washing out


Hi,

it might refer to any blockage in the water supply. So cleaning the pump could primarily resolve this. but it might also be a blockage in the soap tray (when available), the tap or the hose attached to the tap or the air-gap or any water control structure. but most of the times, it is simple blockage of pump. just pull out the manual, remove, clean and replace the pump. this will solve your problem.

cheers

GE Washing Machine (model # GUSR2LOOT) drain problem


Check for a blockage in the water pump. If it does not drain first it does not spin. Check for power to the drain pump motor.If no pump blockage check the lid switch for continuity. No continuity, replace the lid switch.
