Why Won’t My Samsung Top Loader Washing Machine Drain Water?

Here are possible reasons why your top loader Samsung washing machine is not draining water:

1. Clogged Drain Hose

Occasionally, your washing machine’s drain hose may get clogged by small bits of clothing such as socks.

2. Clogged Drain Pump

The drain pump is responsible for sucking water out of the machine’s drum and into your house’s drainage pipe. If this pump gets clogged, the machine won’t be able to drain any water. Read on to learn how to fix this.

3. Defective Drain Pump

In some cases, your washing machine’s drain pump may not be clogged. If you notice that the machine is making loud noises while draining, this may indicate that the drain pump is defective and needs to be replaced. This is probably why your Samsung washing machine is not draining water.

4. Clogged Coin Trap

Most washing machine companies add coin traps to their machines.. This traps foreign objects in your clothing that may try to enter the machine’s drain. This trap catches debris, lint, and of course, coins.

If this trap gets clogged, the washing machine won’t be able to drain. You will have to take out the trap and thoroughly clean it. It is advised that you clean it from time to time.

5. Faulty Door Assembly

As you probably already know, your Samsung washing machine won’t run any cycles if the door isn’t properly locked. This is probably why your Samsung washing machine is not draining water.

6. Defective Water Pump Belt

Older washing machine models are built with water pump belts. These belts are responsible for the motion that occurs during a spin cycle.

As these belts get older, you may begin to notice a shrill sound during spin cycles. This indicates that the belt is either worn out or broken. This may be the reason why your Samsung washing machine is not draining water.
