A washing machine is missing in almost every household today. The practical household appliance is in regular use. However, if a technical defect does occur, good advice is often expensive. What to do when your washing machine does not pump out? In most cases, it is not necessary to spend a lot of money on expensive repairs to spend. Because there are also some things that the layman can do.
When the super-gau occurs and the washing machine does not want to pump off
In many households the washing machine in action" several times a day. But especially when a particularly large pile of laundry has piled up, "murphy’s law" can be used as a guide technical difficulties of various kinds on the device. Experienced housewives and househusbands can literally tell you a thing or two about it: it usually happens at the most inconvenient moment that, for example, the water after the washing process is no longer correct pumped out is stopped and remains in the drum. The spin cycle is not initiated and, depending on the model, the appliance cannot even be opened to remove the laundry. A real nuisance that can cost time, nerves and, in the worst case, a lot of money.
The causes can be manifold
If the water from the drum is no longer pumped out, the laundry can usually not be spun due to the technical nature of the device. The washing machine door remains closed or, if necessary, can only be removed with the help of a separate safety function unlock. As soon as the door opens, the water that has accumulated in the drum comes out.
Of course it is conceivable that the power supply – for whatever reason – was interrupted. This may well lead to the washing machine suddenly causing problems when pumping out. The reasons for an interruption of the power supply can be manifold: possibly, because the plug loosened has moved a few centimeters away from the socket as a result of previous spin cycles or because there is a power failure has given. Check that the lights on the display are lit correctly or that certain control panels are flashing, indicating a technical fault. Often it can help to on/off switch the washing machine to operate. If the desired result is not achieved and the appliance still does not pump the water, troubleshooting moves on to the next phase.
The lint filter – the most frequent cause of malfunctions in the washing machine
Before washing, jacket and trouser pockets should be searched as thoroughly as possible. because unless crumbs, coins and the like are taken out, they will fall out during washing and in the worst case can damage the drum blockage. In addition, it is possible that they get caught in the drain hose and become stuck in the pipe. This is also a common cause for the washing machine to stop pumping out properly sooner or later. Even if only a ballpoint pen or the remains of a paper handkerchief from the laundry get into the inside of the washing machine, it can lead to a blockage in the area of the drain cuff come. experience has shown that this can happen even with the greatest care: it is therefore conceivable that foreign bodies can get into the washing machine, even if pockets and openings are inspected carefully before washing. The path from the drum to the pump is usually only a short one. The consequences, however, can be fatal, as the machine’s functionality would be significantly impaired.
Regularly clean the lint filter – this can save costly repairs
The cleaning of the lint filter and the corresponding pipe section leading into the interior of the washing machine is not particularly complicated. Ideally, they all lead here four to six check the drain hose every few weeks. In this way, you can prevent serious damage to the washing machine prevents become. In this way, the lint filter is, in a sense, the link between the drum, the pump and the drain segment. It catches and holds hair, dirt residues, foreign bodies and other contaminants. Usually the lint filter in the lower front area of the appliance and is equipped with a stable, rotating flap. You turn the knob, move it clockwise and then pull it out with some force. This could possibly cause a small water volume leakage. Therefore, lay out an old towel in front of the opening to catch the liquid.
Remove the dirt from the lint filter and rinse it afterwards with plenty of clean water. Possible grease can be removed by soaking the screen section in a detergent solution for a few minutes. This loosens the grease and frees the pores from dirt. Afterwards, replace the lint filter and operate the control panel of the washing machine to initiate the spin cycle once again. If the water is not pumped out properly even after this procedure, it is possible that also the pump clogged.
If the washing machine drain hose is kinked
Experts agree that the drain hose of a washing machine often the cause of a malfunction of the pumping function is. If the washing machine is too close to the wall, the hose could kink, which would impair the permeability of the water. Every washing machine should be placed on a so called vibration damper be positioned: a washing and spinning process usually involves a considerable amount of effort. The appliance could therefore easily start moving when washing clothes. In many cases, the drain hose is stretched or kinked in the process, so that the waste water can no longer flow through unhindered. If you find the typical pumping noise while washing clothes, but if the washing machine still does not pump out, you should take a look at the quality of the drain hose throw. If you cannot see any visual changes in the hose, it usually helps to unscrew the drain hose and see if there is any visible dirt inside. These should be removed immediately. Also check if water can flow through it. To do this, use a bowl to prevent the water from flowing out in an uncontrolled manner.
Grease residues or other contaminants inside the drain hose are not always immediately visible. Therefore, place the hose part – preferably over night – in a grease-dissolving detergent and rinse it out afterwards with plenty of hot water. Stubborn incrustations in the hose, on the other hand, are preferably cleaned with a pipe cleaner eliminates. If this does not help, the purchase of a new drain hose could be the solution. This is usually available for just a few euros in hardware stores or from your trusted washing machine specialist. Replacing the hose is very simple and therefore does not necessarily have to be carried out by a professional.

In such a situation, it is much more important to perform a professional repair or. A replacement the pump required.
The mishap with the V-belt
Similar to the car, the V-belt also for the washing machine for an adequate power transmission from the motor to the washing drum. If it has come loose or if it is torn, this will affect the pump out the washing machine impact. A V-belt is a normal wear part that can usually be very easily reordered. With a little manual skill, you can certainly call on replace it yourself. To be on the safe side, however, it is advisable to experienced professional to consult.
The display shows an electronic defect
As soon as the washing machine responds to touches of the buttons or. If the control panel in the display no longer responds, it can be assumed that the electronics harm done. The older a washing machine is, the greater the risk that electronic faults will sooner or later become apparent. Trying to "get to the root of the problem" with your own tools, can be connected to an even larger damage end on the household appliance. This in turn would have higher costs repair costs to the consequence. It is therefore better to contact the craftsman you can trust, if your washing machine has defects in the electronics. Often, the professional can get the household appliance working again with just a few simple steps.
TIP: if the electronics are faulty, it can be helpful to check the fuse box take a closer look. Because often a washing machine is not secured separately.
