San Antonio Texas Washer Repair: 3 Reasons Why Your Washing Machine is Refusing to Drain

Washer Repair San Antonio Texas

Most households depend on their washing machines to efficiently clean their clothes without breaking down in the process, unfortunately, that doesn't always happen. While there are a number of malfunctions that can occur, one common defect is a washer's inability to drain. Opening the lid of your machine to find it is filled to the brim with water is beyond frustrating, but before you pick up the phone to call your local washer repair company, you may want to try fixing the appliance yourself. The following malfunctions could be the reason your washing machine is failing to drain properly.

Lid Switch

Often times when a washer refuses to drain the lid switch assembly is defective. The switch tells your appliance if the lid is closed which then allows the machine to perform the drain and spin cycle. When the switch isn't working, your washer won't receive a signal, therefore, leading to its inability to empty. If the lid switch is faulty, replacing it should solve your washers draining issue.

Clogged Hose

Another common occurrence that can cause a lack of drainage is a clogged hose. Small items, such as socks can find their way into the water draining system. When an object obstructs the passage of water to the pump, your washer will remain filled. To remedy this problem, you will need to remove the hoses leading to the pump to locate the blockage. Remember, if your appliance is full of water, undoing the hoses will cause the liquid to pour out. Once the hoses are clear, reattach them and run a cycle to ensure the problem is solved.

The Coin Trap

Most washing machines are equipped with a coin trap. The purpose of a coin trap is to stop objects from entering your draining system. Like the hoses attached to your appliance, this device can become clogged. Luckily unclogging a coin trap is much easier than removing an obstruction from a hose. If you are unsure of where your machines coin trap is located, consult your washers manual. After you have found the device, simply remove any unwanted materials from the trap. Once this is done, your washing machine should have no issues draining.
