Today we will analyze a situation in which the washing machine does not drain water or wring out things. Regarding spinning and draining in a washing machine with a direct drive, we do not mean the LG brand, in principle there is no difference, this applies to all washing machines. Using this example, we want to show not only how you can check whether your pump is working or not, whether the water drain is to blame for not having a spin, but also tell you how the pump changes. Some masters sometimes change the pump, but still there is no drain, and it was not the pump that was to blame, but another element, but we will talk about this in order in this article.
Let’s first understand how to determine whether the water drain is to blame for the fact that you have not completely drained the water in the washing machine or not. The fact is that very often, let’s say you look into the water tank, no, yes, but this does not mean that it has completely merged, it may be merged from the tank and remained standing below the level and does not drain further. This very often happens, for this you need to do the following online manual: firstly remove the cover from the washing machine, remove the pressure switch tube in this way, you release the pressure switch from air pressure, then you can see if the washing machine went to spin immediately instantly, then this is clearly the case it’s not that the brains flew there, but the fact is that either the pressure switch is buggy, especially on LG it happens that there are electronic pressure switches, they very often fail sometimes and it is not desirable in them, because there is something like a solenoid, you can damage it. You can check it using an oscilloscope, but we recommend that you simply replace it with a known working unit. In general, if the washing machine does not wring out, remove the hose from the pressure switch and see if the wringing will be done or not, if the spinning has gone, then the water has not completely drained.
Now let’s look at the pump, we are constantly faced with the fact that the masters say that they cleaned everything, but in the end it turns out that something remains in the tubes and pipes. For example, we disassembled the pump, and examined the impeller and find out why it failed. In order to remove the pump, you need to turn the machine on its side to get to the pump. Next, you need to inspect the branch pipe and the pump, if you are a beginner, it is better to unscrew the case itself, and then unscrew the pump from the case.
In this way, we remove the pump, and now we look, and we see that our impeller is right sideways. The fact is that the impeller loosens because something gets under it, it seems that there is nothing in the housing itself, but various objects sometimes fall into the drain hose and inlet pipes. In this connection, when changing the pump pump, all pipes and pipes must be cleaned and carefully inspected for the presence of small objects and any debris.
When installing the pump, you need to pay attention to the ring, which, if put on dry, can bite, and therefore before installation it can be greased with liquid soap. Be sure to see that the pump fits tightly into the housing, after which you can tighten the screws. It is necessary to tighten the screws without fanaticism, since you can easily break the thread.
