My washing machine is not draining completely. The pump continues to run in attempt to finish draining but the drum never begins turning. When the pump runs, it sounds a bit like it is grinding something inside. I have removed the debris from the drain pump filter and checked the pump itself for clogs and reassembled. There were debris in the small filter, but the pump seemed to be clear of debris upon checking all ports and what i could see on the inside. Pump still does not seem to be operating at full capacity after reassembly and still does not initiate the motor to turn the drum.
From the other posts this appears that it may be a bad (or failing) pump and requires replacement. I am not getting any error codes so I do not think that the door lock assembly is bad.
Would this be due to bad pump? Or could the pressure switch connected to the drain assembly cause this as well? From what I have read, the pressure switch only controls the level of water coming in - not looking to see if the drum is empty.. Any advice is appreciated.
ANSWER Hello Jason. Yes, if the unit is not draining properly, you will need to order and replace the drain pump 137221600 on the unit.
