While you typically count on your Frigidaire washer to keep your clothes clean with a minimum of hassle, every now and then it may malfunction on you. If you find yourself with a washing machine that refuses to drain, follow these handy troubleshooting tips to manage the problem, and call Sears PartsDirect for any parts or advice you need.
Often a clothes washer refuses to drain because its drain hose is kinked or clogged. Check for clogs and obstructions not only in the washer's outflow line but also the house-wide drain system and any outflow hose that is lower in position than the washing machine.
The drain pump is one of the key washer parts responsible for removing dirty water from a washer, and if it breaks, water backs up in the machine. Listen for a humming noise when you have a washer filled with standing water. If you hear it, check the drain pump, and clear any debris around it. If you can't fix the problem by replacing a seal, you may need to replace the whole pump.
The water level pressure switch controls the water level inside the washer drum. If it's defective, the washer may fill with water and refuse to drain, or it can even overfill. Call Sears PartsDirect for washer repair help if you need to ascertain whether your water level pressure switch needs replacement.
