Replacing drainage hose

Hi there! The hose that comes out of the washer and into the drain pipe has a huge crack in it and needs to be replaced. Between my husband and I, we cannot figure out how to change the hose. Do you have to disassemble the entire washer? What do we need to undo to remove it from washer?

Thanks,
Angie

    How do I reach the drain hose? I don't know which part of the washer I should remove to get at it.

  • designist Feb 18, 2009

    I have the same problem, I was able to get the front panel off and I see how to connect the new drain hose. However, I can't figure out how to get the clip off or loose to detach the old drain hose.

    Any advice?

You need to remove the two screws that hold the front panel in place. Remove the hose from the drain pump and pull it out through the back of the machine. You will need to release the clip that holds the hose in place where it exits the back of the washer. Important. When installing the new hose, ensure that you put it back in the clamps inside the machine or it will get caught in the pulley.

I have F 06 error code on my washer

Hi there
an F06 problem usually relates to a long drain problem the solution could mean one of the following but best to star with the least expensive first.
1.ensure that you have emptied the clog filter ( this filter usUSA.y at the bottom left of the machine behind a small door,
place a cloth on ground, unscrew the plug, some water comes out, and hopefully something that has prevented it draining correctly.
2. Ensure their is no kinks in the drainage hose ( usually a 1inch flexy hose at the back of the machine that will run into a hard plastic drainage waste pipe)
3. The pump may be a goner
4. If the heater has failed the washing machine will not drain your clothes correctly, this is an often overlooked cause when it comes to draining problems
hopefully your problem will be number one or two (DIY jobs)
good luck either way.

Washer does not drain water

Hello,

The major reason for this to happen is the clogging of the drain pipe of the washing machine. If, even after you clean the drainage hose, the problem persists, there may be other problems.

Next possibility could be that the drainage pump which drives the water out of the drainage hose may be clogged! So, remove the drainage pump and clean it. That should solve the problem. it might also be that the belt of the drainage pump motor may have loosened. If this is the case, you have to simply tighten it.

Take care.

Washer is leaking out of overflow tube

first
check the drainage pipe, the hose goes into and make sure its not clogged, once you know there are no obstructions reattach the drain hose. be sure it goes a couple of inches into the pipe but has a little space for air flow between hose and pipe. I this doesnt fix the problem the hose made need to be raised, it should enter the pipe several inches higher than the washer. Hope this helps

Will fill with water but will not wash or spin. than has a code nd

HI, your machine if programed to shut down if there is a drain issue. this (nd) code represents a drainage issue. check the drain hose for kinks and, make sure the stand pipe isn't clogged.

Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Washer won't spin out the water

This is a drainage issue. the spin cycle works in conjunction with the draining pump. they both work at the same time during the spin. if the drainage hoses or pump are clogged with debris, it will prevent the water from being drained properly.


Check the following to address the faulty drainage issue.


1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Avanty w789SA

its the drainage problem .so either the drainer is getting blocked or the drainer is cracked and got faulty so needs to be replaced.

This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

Washer won't fill up

The problem is most likely your drain. If there is no air break at the drain,( a gap where the hose goes into the pipe so air can enter) Your water will siphon out of the machine. Also make sure your drain pipe is higher than the tub of your washer and you only want about 6 inches of the drain hose sticking into the pipe. If you have water coming back out of the pipe when the machine drains, you will need a plumber to clean the pipes or replumb the drain. New washers pump out faster than older ones did and they need a good drain to handle the flow.
