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?

Re: Replacing drainage hose
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.

Hello, the Cabrio has the drain pump on the right rear. Pull the washer out from the wall about 2.5 feet or so. Place a towel over the top edge of the control panel and lean the washer back against the wall so it rests there. Lay on the floor and, using a flashlight or headlamp, carefully inspect the drain pump for cracks, the rubber pipes for leaks, and check to see if the motor in the middle has water trails that look like water was slung out when spinning. These models are notorious for leakage from the tub seal at the center. Water drains down into the bearings and motor. I've also seen where the body of the drain pump cracks and leaks. Also, check the metal spring clips. They are notorious for being too loose for holding the rubber elbows and pipes on the plastic nipples under the tub--I never use them to repair a washer--I ALWAYS use automobile hose clamps purchased at auto parts stores--way better and DEFINITELY more reliable. You'll need the 1.5" to 2.5" sizes.
The drain hose on a washing machine
connects the drain pump to a stand pipe, a U-pipe under the sink, or
another place for draining dirty water into the sewer. If your washer
won't drain properly, the problem is sometimes an object blocking the
drain hose, like a pair of underpants, a child's sock, or pieces of
something that broke up in the washer.
Unplug the washer and put the plug on top of the machine to keep it out of any spilled water.
any wet clothes out of the washer and bail the water out of the drum
with the bucket. The washer may be too heavy to move if it's full of
water and wet clothing.
Pull the washer out from the wall enough for you to get behind it.
the plate from the back of the washer by taking out all the screws.
Different brands and models of washers vary in how many screws hold on
the back plate, and not all models require removing the plate to get to
the pump where the hose is attached.
Locate the drain hose. Of the three hoses
coming out of the back of the washer, the drain hose is the largest in
diameter and is attached to a drain pipe instead of a faucet.
Check the drain hose for kinks and bends. These are often the cause of a blocked or slow-running drain hose.
the drain hose from the washer by detaching it from the drain pump. You
will need a screwdriver or a slide-lock wrench to open the clasp that
holds the hose to the pump, depending on what type of clasp it is.
Keep the bucket nearby to catch any water that comes out of the drain pump when you remove the hose.
Remove the other end of the house from the pipe it drains into.
the clothes hanger open so you can use it to poke inside the hose. Push
or pull out the material that's causing the blockage.
Replace the hose and run the washer to check if it's clear.
HI, check the following to address this 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.
**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line
The fill hoses : These are located behind the washer and are connected to the water mixing valve and faucets. Pin holes and cracks on the hoses may cause them to leak.
The water valve: The water mixing valve is located behind the washer. The fill hoses connect to the water mixing valve. Inside of the valve is that the water gets directed to the filling spout. Water leaks happens when the valve develop pin holes or cracks. Bad fill hoses or water valve could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.
The Filling spout: Is just a directing part, this part directs the water from the water valve to the tank. Pin holes and cracks is what make this part to leak.
The tank : The major cause for the tank to leak is through holes or cracks that the tank develops because of vibration or metal items hitting the tank during the spin cycle.
The tub seal : The tub seal is made of rubber, it is connected between the transmission post and the center of the tank. Leaks developed when the seal gets worn out and it looses the ability to make a good seal between the transmission and the tank. A crack tank or worn out tub seal could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.
The overflow tube : This tube is use to direct the water away from any electrical parts like the motor in case of an overflow cause by a bad water mixing valve or bad water level switch.
The pump : The pump job is to remove the water from the tank to the drain pipe. This pump has an electric motor and an impeller. When the pump motor is turning, any water that falls in to the impeller, is push out to the drain pipe.
Most leaks are cause by a worn out seal between the front pump housing and the rear one.
The drain hose : The drain hose is made of hard plastic and some times it develops pin holes and cracks leaks. Bad pump or drain hose could be the reason why the washer is leaking water.
Thanks for using FixYa and do rate the solution as Fixya if found helpful.
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.
Have your husband disconnect the power and water lines, pull the washer out and tip it back so he can check the hose connections to the water drain pump in the bottom of the washer. That pump should have two hose connections. In older machines, it is entirely possible that a hose has either come loose or cracked. If the hoses appear fine, check the pump itself for possible cracks. If all looks well, check the hose clamps for tightness.
pull the frount panael at the bottom and look there early model neptunes would leak around the door seal they made a kit to fix them but i dont know how old yours is so i cant tell you if thats it check the obvious hoses etc your drain pipe could be cloged the one your drain hose goes down in and just barley running over when the washer drains tell your husband to fill it then then switch to drain and listen to the pipe will sound like a bottle filling up when it drains or he will see it running over while it fills look under the bottom panel for leaks hope that helps
