Washer makes a humming sound and will not drain. The washer will complete the wash cycle and spin but will not drain.
Answer Hello Debra,
You should first remove the hoses from the drain pump to clear any foreign matter and debris. If nothing is located, replace the drain pump WH23X10030.
My water comes in the washer, but it runs right back out. What could cause that?
Answer Hello Linda,
Two things can cause this. Either the drain line is not elevated to at least the height of the main top of the washer or the drain is sealed where it goes into the standpipe so the weight of the water going down the drain pulls the water out of the machine, (siphoning).
Just replaced the timer, less than a week. Washer fills up for wash cycle and flooded the laundry room and kitchen. I checked the hoses, they were dry, water level is still full inside washer, no water at valves , drain hose doesn't feel wet where it connects to washer. Could drain hose be leaking inside washer or does it sound like a bad pump ? Also if I disconnect the drain hose to check it out, will the water in the tub leak out ?
Answer Ann, Yes, if the drain hose is disconnected or lowered below the level of the top water will drain from the tub. You may want to select the final spin and drain from any cycle and allow the washer to drain the tub. After that the first check should be at the water level switch WH12X10065 and air tube WH41X365 when you replaced the timer, you may have kinked the air tube or knocked one of the wires off the switch accidentally. This would allow the washer to overfill.
I am looking to replace my drain pump motor on my whirlpool washer as cheaply as possible. I read on line that the motor for a GE WJSR2080V1WW Fits and works only requiring changing the plug. Is this true?
We do not have information that a GE pump would work on a whirlpool unit. There is a major difference between the pumps, the one for the whirlpool pump 280187 has a trap to catch stuff that may get into the pump and the GE pump does not have this. It is recommended to use the manufacturer OEM part.
Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
My clothes washer is leaking water onto the floor, do I need to replace my drain pump?
Answer Hello Steve. You need to look and see where the water is coming from. Then replace the part that is leaking on the unit. It could be a hose, or the pump, or even a seal leaking on the unit.
