Wm2032hw

Just installed a new drain pump on this washer, plugged it back in, went to test it, and now its filing and draining at the same time, is this a pressure issue? Computer issue?
The small drain tube connected to the pump is completely clogged with some type of scrud, i tried clearing it, but its like some alien like substance that didnt want to be cleared.

At the time i didnt think it would affect it, but i guess it totally could, or it could be in the pressure hoses too.

Anyone??
Thanks!!

Quick question, on regular whirlpool direct drive washers, when the water valve was bad, it would keep letting water in, even after power was removed. On this washer, the water will stop once i turn the cycle off. So is this still a water valve problem?
Is it getting a small amount of current and letting the water thru??

Installed new drain pump, tried to run cycle, it filled and drained at the same time.

 

Was advised to install the cold water valve, same prob.

 

Is this a computer prob? Pressure Switch? Something Else?

 

Thanks!

Check to make sure the drain hose isn't jammed all the way down to the p-trap in the bottom of the house drain stand pipe.  Sounds like you might have a shypon  problem.

 

If the drain pump is running while it is filling then most likely a main computer(CCU) problem sending constant power to drain pump.

can you verify that the drain pump is running while it is  filling?  What was the initial problem that caused the pump replacement?  check for messed up wiring going to pump

It was initially not draining, you can visually see the water coming out of the drain hose while it is filling.

Was the drain pump windings physically burnt out/open?

 

If so, most likely bad control board burned out motor by running it continuously, these motor are only designed to be ran intermittently, (some of them are marked on the ratings label such as 10min. ON/50min. OFF on a Frigidaire 50Watt motor and 2min.ON/10min.OFF on a Frigidaire 85Watt motor).

Not exactly correct. In the previous post, you asked a question. You received several responses including a link to a part from the Samurai. You asked another question that no one responded to but you never posted a follow up with the results after installing the suggested part. If you had, you would have received more suggestions.... topics should be merged...

Durham, considering i didnt get a response from my question, i figured no one would pay attention previous post, hence the new post.

I didn't physicaly check to see if the windings were bad, but i will. If the windings are good, does that leave the control board?

I know a bad pump can take out a main pcb on a Samsung.  Also that there could be a stuck pump relay on the LG pcb.  Provided no problem found in pressure switch or hose check the control by giving it a smack with a screwdriver handle.

Depending on how long the old pump was running it might actually still be good and work now.  These pumps, (at least some of them that I know of), have a thermal overload in them that opens when the windings get too hot then closes again when it cools down.

 

Do you still have the old pump?

Budget, i find pretty much on every pump that is bad, that all kinds of scrud gets inside the actual pump assembly, you can pull the impeller out and kinds of nasty stuff is in there, so yea the old pump is bad.

I pulled new pump out and just told them the board was bad and they decided to replace washer.

I used the new pump in another machine and it works beautifully!!

Thanks for all the help guys!!
