[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]How to Fix a Washer That Won't Drain[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]When a washer won't drain, it's usually because there's a clog or the pump is broken. If you figure out what's causing the issue, you may be able to fix it yourself. To find out what's preventing your washer from draining, you'll need to access the parts of your machine to check for damage or clogs. Then, you can clear out any clogs or replace the broken parts.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Diagnosing Your Problem[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]1-Depress your lid switch with your hand to make sure it works.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Your washing machine won't drain if it thinks the lid is open. To check if the lid sensor is broken, find the piece on your lid that presses down when the lid closes. Then, press this switch down and listen for a click or check for a "lid closed" light on your washing machine, depending on your model. If your switch doesn't seem to be working, you may have a broken lid switch that needs replacing.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]You can order a switch online or buy one at an appliance store. Alternatively, hire a repairman to replace the switch for you.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]2-Unplug the washer to prevent electrocution before checking other parts.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Shift your washer away from the wall so you can access the power cord. Carefully pull the cord out of the socket so that the washer isn't connected to a power source. This will limit your risk of getting electrocuted while you work on the machine.[/FONT]

    • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Don't try to handle the water in the machine until it's unplugged. You probably don't need to worry, but it's best to be safe.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]3-Use a bucket or pot to remove the water from the washer.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] You need to drain the machine before you can work on it. First, remove any clothing that's still in the washer drum. Then, use a plastic bucket or large pot to scoop the water out of the machine. Pour the water down the sink or bathtub to dispose of it.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]This is typically the easiest way to remove water if you're new to home repairs.[/FONT]
  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Place your clothes in a large container, the sink, or the bathtub. They'll likely be sopping wet, so they can damage some surfaces, such as your flooring.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]4-Check if your washing machine's access panel is in the front or back.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Your pump will be at the bottom of your washer on either the front or the back. Typically, you'll see 2 small screws at the bottom of the front panel of your washer if it's accessible in the front. If you don't see these 2 screws, your machine is likely accessible from the back.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Typically, top loading washers are more likely to be accessible from the front.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]5[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif]-[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Remove the lower screws on the side you can access.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Use your screwdriver to carefully unscrew each of the screws. Place the screws in a safe spot so you can replace them later. As you remove the screws, hold the panel in place so it doesn't fall off before you're ready.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]These screws are typically at the corners of the panel near the bottom of the machine.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]6-Lift the bottom of the panel to unhook the top and remove it.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Grasp the bottom of the panel with both hands, then slowly lift it forward. As you lift, the top portion of the panel should unhook from the top of the machine. When it does, carefully remove the panel and set it aside.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]The panel will likely feel heavy, so make sure you have a good grip on it.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]7-Check the grey drain hose for kinks or damage.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] You should see 3 hoses attached to the back of your washer. The drain hose will be grey, while the hot water is red and the cold water is blue. Look at the grey hose to see if it looks dented, crushed, or bent, which will make it hard for the washer to drain. If it's damaged, straighten out the hose or get a replacement from a home improvement store.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]If you don't notice any damage, you might have a clog or another damaged part.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]8-Look at the bottom of the washer for a plastic pump attached to the drain pipe.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] The pump is always at the base of the machine, typically at the back or front so you can easily access it. The pump will be round and cylindrical with a base, and you'll see the grey drain pipe coming out of it. Additionally, it'll have a hose attached to it. Typically, this pump is clear or white. However, your pump may be a different color depending on the model.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]If you have your owner's manual, it should have a picture of the pump that you can use as a reference.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]9-Check the pump and surrounding hose for a clog.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Carefully disconnect the hose from the pump to look for a clog. Look inside both the pump and the hose to search for clogs. If you don't see a clog, insert your fingers to feel for one. The clog will likely be something like a small piece of clothing or a wad of lint. However, it could also be something small like a button or coin.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]If your pump is clear, you may be able to see the clog through the plastic.[/FONT]
  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Water may leak out of the hose or the pump when you disconnect them.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Tip:[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] You may want to put a clamp on the drain hose where it connects to the washer so that it doesn't leak more water while you check the hose and pump. You can find hose clamps at your local home improvement store. [/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Umm Hurair Second Dubai Washing Machine Repair[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]10-Check your pump for damage if there's no clog.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] If you can't find a clog anywhere, insert your fingers into the pump to see if the spinning mechanism or any other pieces feel broken or damaged. Look over the entire surface of the pump to check for cracks, warps, or broken pieces. If your pump appears damaged, you'll need to replace it.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]If you're not sure what the pump is supposed to look like, this can be tricky. You can use the illustration of the pump in your manual as a reference, but it may be best to call in a professional.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]11-Listen for weird sounds or leaks coming from your pump.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Usually, a damaged pump will make a weird sound or leak onto the floor before it breaks. It may continue to do this after it's damaged, depending on the problem. If you're worried your pump is damaged, turn on your washer and monitor it for a noise or leaks.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]If you've been hearing a weird sound during your previous washes, it's safe to assume something could be wrong with the pump. Call a plumber or handyman to find out for sure.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Removing a Clog[/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]1-Grasp a visible clog with needle-nose pliers to pull it out.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Insert your pliers into the pump or hose. Then, latch the end of the pliers onto the item clogging your drain. Slowly begin to tug the item out of the pump or hose.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Go slowly so that you don't break up the clog or damage the pump. It's possible that a clog inside your pump is wrapped around the spinning mechanism inside the pump.[/FONT]
  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]It's usually easier to remove a clog from the hose. It should slide out easily if you just pull.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]2-Find the pulley under the pump and twist it to help unwind the clog.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Feel below your machine to find a small pulley that's directly below the pump. This pulley will turn the spinning mechanism inside the pump. As you pull a clog out of the pump, turn the pulley counterclockwise to help unwind the clog.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Turning the pulley will help you avoid damaging the pump.[/FONT]
  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]If turning your pump counterclockwise isn't helping, try turning it clockwise instead.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]3-Use a plumber's snake to remove a clog from a hose.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Detach the pipe and hold 1 end while you place the other in a bucket. Insert the end of the plumber's snake into the hose. Ease it deeper into the pipe until you reach the clog. Then, use your hands to manually turn the snake as you push it through the clog. You should see the clog drop into the bucket.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]After you remove the clog, water that was stuck in the pipe may pour out into the bucket.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]4-Reconnect your hose to the pump after you've removed the clog.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Slide the hose back over the opening on your pump, then secure it in place. Check to make sure that it isn't loose. Otherwise, the hose may leak while the machine is on.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]Make sure that you haven't created any kinks in the hose while you were working on it. If there are kinks, it could prevent your washer from draining.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]5-Plug up your machine and see if it works.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Test out your machine before you put the panel back on it. First, lower your machine back onto the floor if you lifted it. Next, put the power cord back into the socket. Then, set your washer on the rinse cycle and turn it on. Let the washer run through a rinse and spin cycle to see if it drains.[/FONT]

  • [FONT=Times New Roman, serif]If it's still not draining, it's possible there's a clog you can't get to or that the pump is damaged. It's best to get a plumber or handyman to look at it.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman, serif]6-Replace your access panel if your machine is fixed.[/FONT][FONT=Times New Roman, serif] Unplug the machine again before you replace the panel. Then, grasp the panel near the bottom and slowly lift the top part into place. Hook the top of the panel onto the top part of the washer, then lower the panel into place. Finally, reinsert the screws at the corners.[/FONT]
