Why will it not drain

Washing machine agitates and when it comes to their ring cycle will not drain


"Cause 1

Drain Pump

Sometimes, small objects or articles of clothing can get caught in the drain pump. To determine if anything is blocking the drain pump, remove the drain pump and check the pump for obstructions. If the drain pump is clear of obstructions, but is still noisy during the drain cycle, replace the drain pump.

Cause Clogged Pump or Hose

Sometimes, socks and other small articles of clothing can get into the drain system and clog the pump hose or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump and check for any obstructions.

Cause 3

Lid Switch Assembly

The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. If the lid switch assembly fails, the washer will not drain. To determine if the lid switch assembly is defective, use a multimeter to test each of the lid switches for continuity. If a lid switch does not have continuity, replace it."

Disconnect power at outlet. Backflush drain hose with house pressure. Check washtub for water flow while back flushing. Stop back flush. Check washtub for small foreign objects, or fur balls etc. reconnect drain hose to house drain. Turn on Machine and run pump and spin cycle.
