When you notice your washer doesn’t drain the inside water properly, then your washer has a drain pump problem that prevents the inside water from coming out. The most probable reasons are:
- A penny, pin, or any other solid debris will get through the drain pump and wreck the impeller.
- The motor is just crushed.
- The drain pump starts leaking.
- The indication of the control board is not working.
In all these cases, the motor stops working. This means you have to change the drain pump or if the motor is doing well you have to turn your focus to the control board which has to be replaced.
How to Unclog a Washing Machine Drain?
It is typical to face the clogging problem because you are washing your clothes, and the washer has to spew a lot of dirt from your clothes out of the machine through the drain. That, over time, allows some gunk to gather inside the drain wall.
Another issue to be concerned about is if your siphon break is located above the maximum height, then you are likely to be facing this problem frequently. So, be careful about it.
To solve the problem, you have to remove the drain, along with the hose, from the washing machine, and then you can unclog it easily. You need some tools here for that:
- The user manual
- A drain auger
- By following the user manual, if the drain is attached inside the upper wall of the machine, remove the top of the unit using the screwdriver.
- With pliers, loosen the hose clamp and remove the hose from the main adjustment.
- Take the drain out of the unit.
- Insert the drain auger through the straight entry of the drain.
- Once you reach the resistance, give the auger a light rotation. If it requires more force to defeat the opposite battalions, no problem, screw them up until you find your way crystal.
- Now, you are done. Reassemble the drain in the same as you have undone it.
- You can also use a cleaner for this purpose when your auger needs some support.
