Is Your Washing Machine Not Draining Water? Try Out These Simple Steps and See If They Work!

If your washing machine is not draining water, something is either defective or probably stuck.

Here are some steps to show you how you can unclog your washing machine, so it drains properly, and you can save on your appliance-repair bills.

Step 1:

Electricals. Always keep them dry so that they function well. Replace parts that show any signs of immoderate wearing.

Step 2: 

Remove the back panel. Unscrew the panel to check if something is stuck in the washing machine drain hose or pump, or if the pump is broken.

Step 3:

Look for the clog. The pump has a detachable, translucent cover. Remove it to check if the fan in the pump is moving smoothly. It's common for socks and other small clothing items to get into the water drainage system and clog the hose.

Step 4:

Check the belt. If the washer won’t drain, the driving belt might be loose or broken.

Top Tip

Always check garments’ pockets for coins. They are one of the main culprits that damage your machine.
