Kirkland Signature appliances by Whirlpool are known for offering quality and value for the budget-conscious homeowner. If your washer is not draining properly, you likely have a clog or a defective washer part somewhere along the drain path. Complete these quick troubleshooting steps to get your washer to drain as it should.
A blocked drain hose is one of the most common causes of drain failure in washers. Locate the hose in the back of the appliance, and remove any kinks. Disconnect the hose to drain any remaining water from the washer into a bucket or basin, then run a thin pipe through the hose to clear out any foreign objects such as clumps of hair or lint.
The drain pump may stop functioning if it becomes damaged or clogged with debris. Follow your Kirkland washer's user manual to open the housing so you can access the pump and clear away any visible debris. If the pump appears damaged, you may need to replace washer parts such as the seal, the wiring or the entire drain pump.
If the water doesn't drain from the washer and spills onto the floor during a wash cycle, there may be a clog in the drain rather than the appliance itself. Remove the drain hose and run a snake through the drain. If the clog lies deep in the pipe, you may need to call a plumber for washer repair help.
