Is your Washing Machine not draining the water? Try out these simple steps and see if they work!

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

Save your money on appliance repair bills. We will show you how to unclog your washing machine so it drains properly.

Step 1:

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 2:

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 3:

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

Step 4:

Electricals. Just keep them dry so that they function well.

Replace parts that show any signs of immoderate wearing.

Top Tip

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