Homeowners rely on dependable Haier washers keep clothing looking good, but even quality washing machines can experience problems draining. If you suddenly find that the machine is full of water after the wash cycle, try these troubleshooting tips to help the problem drain away.
A kinked drain hose or clogged drain line physically prevents the washer from draining. Remove the hose from the pipe, using a large bucket to catch residual water. Straighten any kinks, and feel for clogs at the opening. To test if there's a clog further down, detach the hose from the washer, keeping the bucket handy for drips, and shine a flashlight through the hose to see if light passes. If the hose is clear, the drain pipe may be clogged.
On most top-loading washers, the lid must be closed for the basket to spin. If your washer neither drains nor spins and the lock light flashes, then the lid isn't latching. Clean away dirt that prevents it from closing, and inspect the mechanism for damage. If it still doesn't latch, then the lid latch may be faulty. Replace it with the appropriate washer parts for your model.
Check the connection where the drain hose meets the drain pipe. It must be lower than the water in the washer to effectively drain. To test this, place the end of the hose into a large bucket, then advance the machine's settings to the end of the wash cycle. If the water now drains, reinstall the drain hose at the manufacturer's recommended height, which you can find in the user manual, available along with washer repair help at Sears PartsDirect.
