The washing machine does not drain the water, how to fix it?
Have you decided to wash the laundry and noticed that the washing machine does not drain the water? Unfortunately, this problem is one of the most common. The reasons for its occurrence may be different.
But before talking about the reasons, let's look at how this problem manifests itself. And what kinds of it are:
- Water draining is extremely slow, in parallel, a program may crash.
- During the execution of the program, the process stalls at the moment when the water should merge. Water does not drain.
- With some washings, the water drains, with others not.
- During the main wash, everything is in order, but when rinsing, the drain does not occur.
- The spin mode is blocked after draining.
What could be the cause of this malfunction? Let's list them:
- The connection pipe (between the tank and the pump) is clogged with garbage.
- There was an extraneous thing in the pump.
- Clogged filter pump (pump).
- The pump broke.
- Clogged sewer or siphon.
- Clogged hose through which water drains.
How to fix the washing machine by yourself?
Before you repair the washing machine, you must disconnect it. Do not neglect safety rules. And so, at first we disconnect the machine from electricity, pulling the plug from the mains.
We clean the filter
After that, check our filter. It is located in the lower part of the housing on the front side. In the process, some water may spill onto the floor. Therefore, it is better to prepare a rag or a small empty container in advance. If you see that the filter is clogged, then simply clean it of foreign objects. This procedure can solve the problem.
For clarity, we demonstrate the entire process of removing the filter of the washing machine in the video:
Check the pipe
But what if the filter is removed and the problem remains? That is, the washing machine does not drain the water? In this case, we proceed to the next stage of repair. Namely, to clean the pipe connecting the tank of the washing machine and the pump (pump).
In order to gain access to it, it is necessary to unscrew the bolts that fix the fastenings of the drain assembly. After that we take out a branch pipe, we remove the fixing collar. Then we drain the water from the pipe into a pre-prepared container.
After this, it is necessary to check whether our nozzle is clogged with any debris. To do this, gently squeeze it in different places. If you feel the blockage, then it must be removed. After that, we assemble the entire structure in its original state.
If this did not solve our problem, then we proceed to the next possible malfunction. Now we will check if the impeller of the pump is jammed. It is located right behind the filter. If any small thing gets into it, then this can cause a malfunction. Therefore, first try spinning the impeller. If it rotates, and no extraneous things are visible, then everything is in order with it. And if you find something superfluous, for example, a coin or a button, remove it. If this does not help, then it remains to check the drain pump (pump).
How to check and replace the pump?
In order to check the operability of the drain pump, we will remove the filter, since you have already done this before. After that, set the program to spin. And highlight the filter hole. To do this, the easiest way to use a regular flashlight. If the impeller of the pump does not move, then the pump (drain pump) has broken. After all, we have already checked it for the presence of foreign objects. And this is the only explanation that the impeller does not rotate. And since we fixed the malfunction, then we move on to the next step - replacing the broken part.
But before that, we need to purchase this very item. Most washing machines use standard parts to assemble. Therefore, we can easily select the new pump we need without any problems. If you do not know where you can buy it, then the easiest way is to use the Internet to search for a seller. Namely, search engines Yandex, Google, Mail.ru or others.Drive into the search line: “buy a pump for a washing machine in Moscow”, “in Moscow” you need to change to your city, if you are not a Muscovite. Then find sellers in the search results, call them and buy a new pump.
And so, we already bought the pump. Now we will remove the broken one and replace it with a worker. To do this, we need to remove the drain unit of the washing machine. And detach the drain pump from this assembly. After carefully removes wires from it. Then we get the working drain pump and install it in place of the old one. We attach wires to it and so on. And collect the machine in its original condition.
To facilitate the whole process, we selected a video that shows the entire process of removal and replacement of the drain pump. See:
Washing machine assembly
When assembling, be careful with the attachment points. Check for the presence of clamps and their tightness, tighten all the screws and make sure that all the parts are in place.
After that, we will check the operability of the machine by conducting a test wash. Be careful when washing. If a leak occurs somewhere, it means that some connection point was not properly fixed. In this case, correct this defect and check the operation of the washing machine again.
We hope this article helped you solve the problem. Have a good day!
