Why does my washing machine not hold water ?
Answer Danielle, It's not likely to be a drain pump issue W10276397 or washer issue at all. Your first check needs to be at the drain/stand pipe, the top of the drain pipe where the drain hose from the washer is inserted needs to be at least 38 inches high from the floor. If the pipe is not high enough, the water reaches a certain level, then will "syphon" through the tub and pump, and the wash tub won't fill. You also want to check and make sure the end of the washer drain hose is not "stuffed" into the pipe, or that there is tape or towels sealing the hose to the pipe.
Fridgidaire washer. Final spin doesn't spin fast like it is supposed to. Makes a loud kind of buzzing sound & will spin slowly. Also doesn't drain. Cleaned out filter & hose. When I tried the final spin again I still have the buzzing sound & slow spin. Does the pump motor control the spin speed? Thanks.
The pump motor does not tell the unit to spin fast but if the unit is not draining then it will not spin fast. If there is a buzzing noise then it is possible that the pump is faulty and not draining well enough for the unit to go into full speed spin. If the water is draining completely then it most likely would be a faulty speed control board.
When I do a full load of wash I get a puddle of water in front of the machine. If I do a partial load everything works fine. What would cause this?
Answer Hello Isaac. You will need to look and see if the water is overfilling or if a hose has a slow leak and only shows up on the large loads. Remove the toe panel and run the unit and look for leaks.
Won't spin out water, it starts to spin then it just shut's completely down?
Answer Hello Intmd8r 333. You need to make sure the pump is not clogged and the door lock is good on the unit. Either part can cause the issue you are having with the unit.
Our frontloader wouldn't drain so we cleaned the drain pump and the coin catcher, put it all back together now it won't fill. What could we have missed when we put it back together?
Answer Hello Rick,
The most common thing to overlook that will cause this issue is if you forgot to plug the door switch back in. This is, of course, if you pulled the main front panel. Otherwise, if you turned the water off to the unit, it is common to forget to turn it back on. You might want to remove the front bottom panel to check to see if anything got pulled loose. Also, if you removed the hose from the pump on the side that connects to the outer tub, there is a hose that connects to a plastic adaptor that must be connected properly. This is the pressure switch connection. Without it, the unit will either not fill or it will fill infinitely.
My washer won't drain we cleaned the dainage pump, but it still won't drain. How do we clean the filter and were is it.. do we need a new drainage pump
If you cleaned the drain pump then you would have also had the filter right there. There is not a separate filter from the pump and if the unit is still not draining then you will want to make sure that the impeller of the drain pump is does not spin freely but has a magnetic jump to it. If it spins freely then the impeller shaft is bad and you will need a new drain pump.
